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.

HEALING FOR YOU

There is healing in Jesus. He is The “God Head” and all power is in Him. God still heal when the doctor shakes his head, and turn and say there is nothing else we can do. When you are told such words it is hard to hear, but it is reality. Trust God in all things, pray, and pray without ceasing. Pray in Faith to the Heavenly Father, God Himself will hear the prayers of the righteous. Stand on Faith in God before you call on man for your healing, or seek man for your healing. You will Pray, and pray without ceasing.” (1Thessalonians 5:17). says for us to “Pray without ceasing” God has given doctor wisdom and knowledge to use it for earthly healing of the people. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraided not; and it shall be given him. (James 1:5). It will serve you good to seek professional help for healing. But it is God who we should put our Faith and trust in for healing and God will work out your healing journey for you. And you will be at peace.

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and by His stripes we are healed”. (Isaiah 53:5)

Mark 5:24-34

Now Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and he was by the sea. And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus was his name. And when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet, and begged Him, earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live”.

“So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him.

A multitude of people were walking with Jesus, and thronged Him as they walked to Jairus house. My spiritual eye can imagine they were talking, bumping against each other and laughing.

“Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years,”

Because this woman had a bleeding condition, and the issue had continued for twelve years. She had spent all she had seeking help from many physicians and no treatment was known for her condition. We also know she was not permitted to the temple for Jewish religious ceremonies. According to the Law she was unclean, and anything or anyone she touched would become unclean.

“and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had, and was no better, but rather worse.”

All these twelve years of this woman seeking help, she had found none. She was getting worse and worse.

“When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment”.

This woman was in the crowd pressing around Jesus which means that each person who bumped into her would have become unclean, including Jesus. But after twelve years of suffering, she was obviously desperate for a miracle. This woman was in pain, she was hurting and in lots of humiliation.

“For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well”.

This woman put her faith to work. “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone”. (James 2:17)

“Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction”.

“And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said,

“Who touched my clothes”?

Our Holy God, walking on earth as a man. saving man, healing man, casting demons from man, raising man from the dead, Jesus is the Bright Morning Star light among the people. He lights our way, He is the light of the world. Follow Jesus and walk in the light, He is the way the Bible tell you so. Some of Jesus Holy Ghost power left Him when this sick and desperate woman touched Him. Jesus, our God, who is full of compassion toward His people struggled with the darkness of the touch, He struggled with the urgency of the touch. He knew it was a desperate touch of sickness in need of a miracle, so with heavy mourning He asked;

“Who touched my clothes”?

“But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, “Who touch me”?

His disciples were not fill with the Holy Spirit yet, because Jesus was still with them, He had not returned to the Father yet, So the other one just like Him (The Holy Ghost) had not come yet. Jesus knew this was not just a throng, it was a touch of desperation. His disciples did not understand what Jesus was speaking about.

” And He looked around to see her who had done this thing”.

Jesus, the Messiah, the one who saves and gives everlasting life, the Savior of the world, the King of King, our God everlasting Father, had stood still, waiting for the one who had touched Him, and were so desperate for a miracle. Jesus who is our Eternal Father wanted to know who touched Him. Our God is filled with kindness and compassion because as soon as the woman touch Jesus garment the bleeding stopped, and she knew she was healed. Jesus could have healed the woman and kept on walking to His original destination. Only He and the woman would have known what had taken place. But He didn’t do that. Jesus stopped what He was doing and acknowledged the result of this woman faith: Her faith had brought her complete and instantaneous healing.

“But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what had happen to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth”.

Her touch did not make Jesus unclean, Jesus touch made her clean. People were pressing and pushing into Him from all over, yet our Savior, our awesome God, stops, turns, and asks, “Who touched my clothes”? Jesus perceived in Himself that power had gone out from Him. The woman was fearing what could happen to her, she knew she received healing in her body, her miracle was given. “But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told told Him the whole truth”

“And He said to her,

“Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction”.

Jesus spoke to the woman in a familiar way, he called her Daughter, we are sons and daughters of God by faith in Jesus Christ, our savior, our Messiah. She probably was familiarly with the Ministry of Jesus, how he went all about the cities in Israel healing the sick, and she considered in her own heart “Jesus can heal me”. But this woman was desperate for healing, having little or no hope because of what she was experiencing. (same with us when we exhaust every mean of healing and nothing is working, I would say there is a need to reconsider what or who you are putting your faith in. There is no need to wait until you get big faith, the bible says you can have little faith as mustard seed faith. This woman took a chance to put her faith to work, and nothing else mattered, she said, if I could just touch His clothing I will be healed. Faith Works. Jesus looked upon her and clears up any misconceptions about her healing, He says to her “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be free from your suffering”. What a Mighty God we serves, He moves our pain and suffering, He is the Everlasting God who cares. God is moved to action by our faith. And He is never too busy to answer your prayer and move on your behalf by your faith.

“This is what Jesus said about faith “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you”. (Matthew 17:20)

Whatever things you ask for when you pray, believe that you have received them, and you will have them. Amen!!!

Jewel Of Nugget /Jewels For The Soul Blog April 20,2021 Praise The Lord!!!

  • Jesus called her by a familiar name as daughter, for we are sons and daughter of God, by faith in Jesus, and her faith in Jesus gave her access to Jesus for healing. She believed by faith she would be healed of her affliction if she could just touch His clothes, and that as strong faith. For sure this woman was familiar with how Jesus traveled all Israel healing. Her faith had healed her, and the blessing of Jesus made her whole.
  • “Go in Peace and be healed of your “.h

JOHN 10:7-16

Then said Jesus unto them again

  • Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
  • All who ever came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
  • I am the door, if anyone enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
  • The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy, I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
  • I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
  • But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
  • The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.
  • I am the good shepherd; and I know my sheep, and I am known by my own.
  • As the Father knows me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.
  • And other sheep I have which are not of the fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear my voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
  • Therefore my Father loves me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

Blessing. Blessing. Blessing, our God is blessed, and therefore we are blessed. Jesus said “I am” the good shepherd, He is making a proclamation that He has a unique divine identity and purpose, He is the spiritual door we need to enter into fellowship with God the Father. Jesus is our good shepherd. We are His sheep, and because He is the good shepherd we can rest assuredly in His goodness. We know that all good thing will come to us from the Father because He loves the Son. Jesus is the door for us to walk through, He said “I am the door”, the only door for the sheep to go out and in, and find green pasture. Jesus know His sheep, His sheep know Him. He call and they answer Him, because they know His voice. When any other come bearing the name of the good shepherd, my sheep do not hear them because he is a robber and a thief who is not sent of the Father. The hireling is not sent from the Father, he do not own the sheep, therefore the sheep do not hear him. My sheep know I am the good shepherd, the Father knows me, and like wise I know the Father and my sheep enter in by Me, “I am the door” they will be saved when they enter in the door. The thief come only but to rob, steal, and destroy, he is the Devil. The thief will not protect the sheep, he will leave the sheep alone to be hurt or kill when danger come. Because the hired shepherd will run, he don’t care for the sheep, he is the Devil. But “I am the good shepherd” I have come to save you. I am come to give you life, and life more abundantly. I have other sheep who is not in the fold because they have not heard My Word, they are lost and have not heard my voice. I must save the lost sheep, you who know me, you who love me, go into all hills, valleys, all nations all over the land, and tell the Good News so my sheep will know me. And they will hear my voice. Tell them My Father love Me because I lay down my life for my sheep. My sheep will hear my voice, they will come unto me, and there will be One flock and One Shepherd. “I Am The Good Shepherd”.,

Jesus Prayed to the Father

Christ’s prayed His high priestly prayer to the Father. As he prayed, He is asking as our high priest. As Jesus lifted up His eyes to heaven, He prayed to the Father “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him” (John 17:1-2)

Jesus Petitions to the Father on our behalf:

  • That I may be glorified as the Son who has glorified the Father (Phil. 2:9-11).
  • For restoration to the eternal glory. (John 17:5).
  • For the safety of believers from the world and the evil one (John 17:11,15).
  • For the sanctification of believers (John 17:17).
  • For spiritual unity of believers (John 17:21-23).
  • That the world may believe (John 17:17).
  • That believers may be with Him in heaven to behold and share His glory (John 17:24).

I in them, and You in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that You has sent me, and has loved them, AS YOU HAS LOVED ME”. (John 17:23)

Jesus prayed for Unity with Himself and the Father. The saints of God is securely locked in with the Father and Son forever. And nothing can separate us from the love of God. Through Jesus prayer of uniting the saints with Father and Son, we now have the power to know and understand the love of a God who sent His only Son to a lost and doomed world.

I in them, and You in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that You has sent me, and has loved them, AS YOU HAS LOVED ME”. (John 17:23)

“Jewel of Nugget” Psalms 37:3 “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shall be fed”.

Put your faith in God and believe his Word in the Bible. They are a roadmap to the good life that God has given to us. Just as evil doers are destined to “wither” and “fade”, those who do good in the sight of God and who trust in His Word will prosper. The faithful children of God will cultivate the fruit of the Spirit: “which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)”. The fruit of the Holy Spirit is the result of the Holy Spirit’s presence in the life of a Christian. Without the fruit of the Holy Spirit a person cannot live and do good in the sight of the Lord. And so shall the Christian (you) stay with the Lord, you will keep in His presence and dwell in the land.

This is encouraging to the believer. We live in a world where is seem sometimes that “good guys finish last”. But those who trust God will “dwell (endure) in the land”. So stay faithful, this is God’s world, good guys last, we Win!”

“Jewel Of Nugget” Isaiah 54:5 “For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth “SHALL HE BE CALLED”

God is our Maker, He is the Maker of all the races of the universe. Our God. Elohim “The All – Powerful One; The Creator of All Things.

God is the all-powerful creator of the universe. God knows all, creates all, and is everywhere at all times. ELOHIM is the plural of “EL”

I pray to Elohim, God the Father for a good husband, and I would think that all of us women who want a good husband would talk to God, the Father about it. A good husband is a Jewel, and we are blessed if our husband loves us, provides for us, and also treats us well and protects us. When a good husband find his wife he will treasure her. And this is good ladies, a good husband makes sure that his wife needs are met. Pray for one ladies. And I know that you have heard this before, your husband is your friend and confidante, he makes you feel safe and he makes you feel confident. When a women have a good husband, through his eyes, she sees her own beauty and worth. A good husband is compared to God as a husband. He cares for His bride (the church) in the same way that an earthly husband cares for his wife.

We can take comfort in the fact that we are safe in the arms of our husband who is our Maker and Redeemer.. We have nothing to fear. We are loved and cherished by a kind and loving God.

Lord, thank you for caring for me, thank you for providing all my needs. Lord, you make me feel safe and protected, thank you. In you according to your Holy Word, I see my true worth, I see that I am treasured by you and your love gives me confidence. In you Lord, I can be every thing that I need to be.

A MAN HEART DEVISES HIS WAY

Proverbs 16:1-9

The plans of a man heart is set in motion by himself. He offers up comfort to himself of what shall his life be like, what dreams and asperation of visions shall he pursue and bring to a fulfillment of a life well lived. Man, may plan what his life will be like, but the preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord. Man may say what he will do with his life, but the end result is from the Lord. But when man does not offer unto God his life the end result is disconnection, failure, disaster and a troublesome way of life.

Man wants his life to be good, satisfying and filled with gratification on earth. “Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Matthew16:24). If man want to have satisfying life, he must put the old man to death, and put on the new man in Jesus Christ, by picking up His cross. Jesus will walk with you along the way and carry your burdens. All the ways of a man are clean and seem wright in his own eyes, but the LORD weights the spirit. The plans that man has for his life may seem well and good before him, but God looks at the heart, so there is a purpose behind what you do in your life, why you do it?, is it for evil or good?, is it from hate or love?, is it because of jealously or a need?. The Bible says man shall not “Covet” his neighbors because of what he has or because he want what he has. “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey; or anything that is your neighbor”. (Exodus 20:17)

Work for the Lord. All you do, do it your best, as your best go to the Lord, so all your works do it as you would do it for the Lord. Commit your works unto the LORD, and your thoughts shall be established. Do your works as if the Lord was in your physical presence to look upon your works, and then your thoughts will be turned unto the Lord, and your thoughts will be turned unto righteousness and established in the Lord.

“The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil”

Man Heart Devises His Way. Every one who is proud in the heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. Many proverbs warn that the sin of pride is a dangerous offense. “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall”. This is also in the Bible about pride “Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud”. (Proverbs 16:18-19)

By God mercy and truth your sins and iniquity was purged. Man sins forgiven, but for our chastisement of peace and the iniquity of sins, it was all put upon Him, the Lamb of God. “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). Jesus was “Wounded” for sins He did not commit. God only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God sent to earth to die upon a cross for the sins of the world. His death was like no other death that had taken place on the earth. There will never be another death like Jesus on the earth. Jesus Christ, our Lord, our Savior, our Messiah, our Salvation. Jesus, God in the flesh who Love the Father and obeyed the Father even unto death on the cross. “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). And by fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

“When a man’s ways please the LORD, he make even his enemies to be at peace with him”.

It is better to be a righteous servant of God than to be lost among the unrighteous in sin. It is better to have little world gains, than to have great revenues without a righteous God to call upon in your moments of despair.

“A man’s heart devises his way: but the LORD directed his steps.

Well this is another Jewels for the Soul Blog. Praise. Praise. Praise the Lord!!!

SHOUT IT LOUD “WE WIN”!!!

Everybody likes to Win, they just want to win, it makes them feel good, happy, it makes them feel like they are part of the big group that know how to push, defeat and accomplish their goals. Those of us who win occasionally think their intelligent, power, popularity, and their charisma was the secret to winning, maybe it was, or maybe it was God trying to get their attention, saying “I bless you” even thou you will not give me the credit, “I stand at the door of your heart waiting for you to say “yes Jesus I love you, come into my heart and save me. Yes Jesus I trust you to Win for me.

NO works by human hand or works of the flesh, shall make you or I a true winner, it is the God in you that gives you the victory. Yes! you will win. As followers of Jesus Christ, we all want to live a triumphant Christian life. The Bible assures us that God has given all believers victory in Jesus Christ, “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:57).

1. In practical sense: how can we experience the victorious life that has been made possible in Christ? Victory ultimately belongs to the Lord our God (1 Samuel 17:47) “Then all this assemble shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands. Since the days of Israel’s Exodus from Egypt, whenever God’s people depended on Him alone, He gave them victory over their enemies. We are God’s people also, and all alone our life journey, God is giving us the victory by our Lord, Jesus the Christ. Victory in Jesus, now isn’t that good. “I Win, and You Win. (Exodus chapter 15). Old Testament prophets listened and heard the words that God spoke to them, and they would consistently point to a future Savior who would bring the fullest expression of God’s triumph: “Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your King comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9) King Jesus victorious and righteous, riding on a donkey bringing salvation to a lost world, in fact He “IS” our salvation, the lowly and meek Savior full of love, Jesus the King, Emmanuel God is with us, we are a people of God, a blessed people and having victory by victory in our Christian walk with God. We are a Victorious people whom God the Father Loved before the foundation of the world and because of that love we can walk in victory. (John 16:33) “Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world”. Jesus overcame the world to set us free. Amen! in our trials and tribulation we are overcomer through the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for it was at the Cross where sin was washed away and you and I were cleansed. Jesus won the supreme victory at the cross. Sin was atoned and the power of sin and death was broken. I love the way Brother Peter puts it, “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness – by whose stripes you were healed”. (1 Peter 2:24). Hallelujah we Win! After Jesus crucifixion and burial, He rose from the dead three days later, and now we share that victory. Satan thought he had won, when Jesus died upon the cross, but instead, Jesus death on the cross released our chains of bondage and set us free from the slavery of sin, and rebuked the supernatural powers of evil. Victory. Victory. Victory. This is what happen; “When you were dead in your sins and uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the powers and authorities of Satan, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross”. (Colossians 2:13-15).

The key to achieve victory in Jesus is faith. “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God” in (1John 5:4-5) we read, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world; our faith”. The first step to victory in Jesus is accepting Him as your savior. You receive the Lord in your heart by the grace of the Father, by your faith. And you live in victory by grace through faith. Our salvation is a gift of God’s grace, and our victory in Jesus is a gift of God’s grace. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is, the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast”. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

What is the extent of Jesus Christ’s victory that He imparts to us? The victory that Jesus shares with us includes victory over the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world” (1 John 2:16). And also our Lord triumph over sin and temptation, and that same victory has become ours as well: “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires” (Hebrews 4:15) “For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

The most loved apostle John elaborates it this way: “And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins, has neither seen Him nor know Him. Little children, let no one deceive you He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil”. WE WIN VICTORIOUSLY.

We who are blood brought, born again children of God, Jesus has overcome Satan and the power of evil for us, and He shares the victory with us. When Jesus ascended to the Father in heaven, He promised to send the “Helper” who is the “Holy Spirit”, this is what He says, “Never the less I tell you the truth. it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the “Helper” will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you (John 16:7). Jesus, our eternal blesses hope in God, “said’: and when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. Jesus tell us who is righteous “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the powers of the enemy, nothing will harm you” Jesus took on flesh and blood and a human body to share in humanity “so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death, who is the devil. We need not to live our life in slavery by fear of death. (Hebrews 2:14-15). Christians need not fear death or the devil because we share in Jesus Christ’s victory over them. Jesus has loosed the pain of death for us. (Acts 2:24) “Whom God raised up, having loosed the pain of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it”.

As long as we remain in this fallen world, we will still have struggles to overcome and battles to fight. Sometime you will fall, but continue to get back up, and ask God to equip you with His grace and power to overcome. (2 Corinthians 12:9) The apostle Paul, Lord, says to him; “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness”. The apostle Paul, speaks of his Lord; “Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ my rest upon me”. As believers, we fight our battles in the spiritual ream, on our knees. Even though we live in the world, we do not wage war like the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world, on the contrary, our weapons have divine power to demolish strongholds in the spiritual ream. (2 Corinthians 10:3-4) “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. God has given us spiritual armor to protect us from the power of darkness that wage war against us. (Ephesians 6:10-20)

2. Victory in Jesus is real and attainable. Because our Lord Jesus has defeated Satan and every evil power of the world. We achieve victory in Jesus by resting in Christ and trusting Him to triumph for us. “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. (Matthew 11:28) While we remain on earth, the Lord reigns victorious through those who have been delivered from the kingdom of darkness and translated into His glorious kingdom of light. (1 Peter 2:9) “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light”. A day is coming when the victories of Jesus will be fully realized and celebrated in the new heavens and earth. One day Jesus will swallow up death forever.. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove His people’s disgrace from all the earth.

THE LORD HAS SPOKEN (Isaiah 25:8)

THE WORD BECAME FLESH

John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh, dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus, the word of God, was sent to earth as a baby to live as a man. He grew from a baby in the womb of a virgin named Mary. “And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS“. Luke 1:31. And He died without sin upon a cross as the sinless Savior. The term word is used in different ways in the Bible. In the New Testament, there are two Greek words translated “word”, rhema and logos. They have slightly different meanings. Rhema usually means “a spoken word”. For example example, in Luke 1:38, when the angel told Mary that she would be the mother of God’s Son, Mary replied, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word (rhema)” Jewels of Nuggets “(the Word is spoken)”

Logos, however, has a broader, more philosophical meaning. this is the translation used in John 1. It usually implies a total message, and is used mostly in reference to God’s message to mankind. For example, Luke 4:32 says that, when Jesus taught the people, “they were amazed not merely by the particular words Jesus chose but by His total message.

“The Word” (Logos) in John 1 is referring to Jesus. Jesus is the total Message – everything that God wants to communicate to man. The first chapter of John gives us a glimpse inside the Father/Son relationship before Jesus came to earth in human form. He pre-existed with the Father (verse 1), He was involved in the creation of everything (verse 3), and He is the “light of all mankind” (verse4). The Word (Jesus) is the full embodiment of all that God is (Colossians 1:19; 2:9, John 14:9). But God the Father is spirit. He is invisible to the human eye. The message of love and redemption that God spoke through the prophets had gone unheeded for centuries (Ezekiel 22:26; Matthew 23:37). People found it easy to disregard the message of an invisible God, and continue in their sins and rebellion. (God is Spirit) he, who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. That is why when God called Moses up on the mountain top to give the Ten Commandments to him for the people, and how the tabernacle was to be used, and also the alter of incense, they got restless, along, and afraid, thinking Moses had brought them all the way from Egypt to let them die in the wildness, so with their weak minds they wanted a god that they could see. So they begged Aaron to to make them a golden calf, made from silver, gold, and jewelry, a god that they could see. “Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him” (Exodus chapter 30-32). “And Aaron said unto them, break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me”. “And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, these be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. “Jewels of Nuggets” how quickly they forgot. God had been good to them. He delivered them out of the hands of their enemies, from slavery. With a strong hand and many plagues did Jehovah God deliver the Israelites out of Egypt from bondage. How quickly they forgot what God had done for them. And I recognize, the people of God in this day and time, are the same way. How quickly do we forget what God has done for us, how far He has brought us. How he has kept and protected them, It seems like his blessing, his graces and mercies are all forgotten in time as life journey keep turning.

So the word became flesh, took on human form, and came to dwell among us. (Matthew 1:23; Roman 8:3, Phillippians 2:5-11).

The Greeks used the word logos to refer to one’s “mind,” “reason,” or “wisdom.” John used this Greek concept to communicate the fact that Jesus, who is the Second Person of the Trinity, is the self-expression of God to the world. In the Old Testament, the word of God brought the universe into existence(Psalm 33:6) and saved the needy sinner(Psalm 107:20. In John Gospel, chapter 1, he is appealing to both Jew and Gentile to receive the eternal Christ.

Jesus told a parable(example) in Luke 20:9-16 to explain why the Word had to become flesh. He said “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. He sent one a third time, and they wounded him and threw him out. “Jewels of Nuggets” The Word became flesh and dwells in the heart of mankind. Jesus want man to bear fruits, because at harvest time He come to collect fruits of: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” God sent his servant the prophets to man with his commandments and they did not hear them, nor did they listen to them and soon they beat them, killed them and threw them out. I seem to recognize that the people of God are the same way today, they don’t listen to God’s servant the prophets. I perceive that they hear the Word but it is far from entering into their hearts to obey and to live accordingly as thus says God’s Holy Word. The conditions of world situations and crisis, from personal crisis, health crisis, economic crisis and the ability to love and get alone with each other in a respectful way and by doing so bringing harmony and solution to world problems, reveal a lack of accepting the Word of God. Therefore it is perceived that the prophets who bring the Word of God saying “what thus says the Lord” is being killed and thrown out.

“Then the owner of the vineyard said, “What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him. But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. “This is the heir”, they said. “let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours. So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others”. “Jewels of Nuggets” the inheritance was forfeit to all people (God’s) plan. The plea to the people of God is don’t kill and throw out your inheritance.

In this parable of story, Jesus was reminding the Jewish leaders that they had rejected the prophets and were now rejecting the Son, Jesus Christ. The Logos, the Word of God, was now going to be offered to everyone, not just the Jews anymore, but also a way for the Gentiles to be saved was now possible.(John 10:16; Galatians 2:28; Colossians 3:11). Because the Word became flesh, we ALL have a high priest who is able to empathize with our weaknesses, one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet He did not sin(Hebrews 4:15)

God’s plan for salvation were for the whole world to be saved. Jesus died on the Cross for all mankind.
