GOD DESTROYS gods & idols

15638006982148295271043831435818.jpgThe ark triumphed over dagon, broken in pieces, after it was ceased in battle. A plan of the enemy to humiliate Israel in battle imploded dagon fell and broke in pieces. Jesus’ triumph over gods or idols means kingdom of satan defeated. The kingdom of Christ in God is living truth eternal Godliness. Be confident of day of triumph in Christ true Ark of Covenant in hearts of mankind to destroy satan’s temple. Idols fall in Psalm 115:5, they have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes but cannot cannot  see, ears, but cannot hear, noses but cannot smell says Isaiah 44:13. All who serve and worship it like them. Psalm 135:16 have mouth cannot speak, eyes cannot see, ears cannot hear no life in their mouths. Isaiah 6:10, They have mouths, cannot speak, eyes cannot see, Jeremiah 5:21,Ezekiel12:2, Matthew 13:15, Acts 28:27. Antiochus’ statue Zeus  in God’s temple Hellenic priest sacrifice pigs to Greek god religion angered Jews. Greek official ordered a Jewish priest to perform a Hellenic sacrifice, the priest Mattathias killed him. In 167 BCE, Jews joined Mattathias and five sons to fight to win freedom from Seleucid authority. Mattathias’ son Judah Maccabee, called “The Hammer”re-dedicated temple in 165 BCE and Jews celebrate event to this day major part of festival of Hanukkah.IMG-20190722-WA0003.jpgGod allows captivity if their hearts turn dull and ears heavy, shut their eyes lest they see with eyes or hear with ears to change and saved. Jesus quoted Isaiah’s prophecy, lest they see with their eyes, hear with their ears and saved. Isaiah 42-53 highlights people serve God with their ears open but did not listen. So he laments over God’s chosen people who copy heathen pagans who shape gods or cast idols with eyes plastered, sculpture wood they call gods. God allows people to have reprobate minds in Romans 1 to do as they like to serve the creature not Creator God. All sins forsaken by them is forgiven so righteous are restored by salvation. Jesus will claim His throne so and all will be dethroned and crucified.  The dagon spirit will not prevail against God’s Children but those who continue Jesus condemns to seek salvation or be entirely destroyed like in Samuel 5:6-12. God warns believers of serving another god in addition to Living God Jehovah so thou shall have no other gods apart from Adonai Elohim. God shows mighty power in defeating Egypt yet in absence of Moses Aaron permitted golden calves but God saved them. Tragedies results from rebellion of idolatry against God. IMG-20190722-WA0002.jpgGod becomes angry with them forsakes them…. Many disasters and calamities came on them, that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us? “I will hide my face that day because of wickedness in turning to other gods” says Deuteronomy 31:16-18. In 1 Kings 11 Solomon’s idolatry of love of foreign women: Pharaoh’s daughter, Hittite and Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon. Were from nations the LORD said to Israel “Never intermarry with them to tempt you to follow their gods.” Solomon obsessed by love had 700 and 300 concubines. In old age, wives tempt him to follow idol gods no longer committed to LORD God like father David. Solomon followed Astarte goddess of Sidonian, Milcom idol of the Ammonites. Solomon did evil as LORD  considered not wholeheartedly follows the LORD. Solomon built site on hill east of Jerusalem for Chemosh idol of Moab, Molech idol of Ammonites. These things for his foreign wives to burn incense to sacrificed to their gods. God Pronounces judgment on Solomon angry because his heart turned from the LORD God of Israel who appeared to him twice. God commands him not to follow other gods, but Solomon did not obey God. LORD  told Solomon, “I will tear kingdom from you to give to your sons. I will not do it in your lifetime because of your father David. I will tear it from hands of your son. I will not tear whole kingdom away from you. I will give your son one tribe for my servant David’s sake and sake of JERUSALEM THE CITY I CHOSE.”15638808712343548709652712321450.jpg15638816264066145787514658232527.jpg15638815050961186563612446522861.jpgElijah killed Jezebel’s 400 baal prophets to restore God worship in vain and 7000 true prophets of God could not change idolatory in Israel. Elect 144,000 Israel males sealed in Revelations has tribe of Dan excluded by idolatory. Revelation 7 missed from 144,000 the tribe of Dan. Twelve thousands from Jacob’s twelve sons and twelve tribes of Israel includes tribe of Levi’s inheritance in the LORD. Levites refused to worship golden calf so God made priests in his Tabernacle. Joseph’s tribe split into two, each son Manasseh and Ephraim received an inheritance. In the list of those sealed in Revelation, tribe of Levi is listed. Tribe of Dan excluded, suggest false prophet of Revelation may be from tribe of Dan. Others see Dan’s role in leading Israel into idolatry as a cause for being left out of the 144,000 in Judges 18:30–31. Tribes not blessed by inclusion in this seal, prophetic books indicate members of tribe of Dan will be saved and receive land in the millennial kingdom in Ezekiel 48:2. Mankind may lost track of members of tribes, God but God knows them all in Revelation 7:4–8.IMG-20190722-WA0000.jpg
In Judges 18:30, The children of Dan set up graven image in new city of Dan and built house for it, where Jeroboam later set up one of his golden calves. Danites succeeded in Micah’s house, venerated graven images brought with them and set up religious worship. Molten image, teraphim, ephod all placed together for devotion and consultation. Jonathan son of Gershom, son of Manasseh as priests to tribe of Dan resided in the city of Dan Jonathan the Levite Micah took into his house made priest. Danites took to Laish priest son of Gershom, son of Manasseh Gershom son of Moses’ grandson. Like Phinehas grandson of Aaron in Judges 20:28, grandson of Moses in honour of Moses. Forgot virtues of his grandfather, Moses the priests in Dan in captivity of the land for idolatry. Idolatrous priests, through time of Samuel, David, Solomon in captivity of Israel, time of Jabin king of Canaan. Gersom’s idolatry continued in house of God at Shiloh, ark captured by Philistines. House of Shiloh forsaken  says Psalms 78:58-61 as God permitted.IMG-20190722-WA0001.jpgIn Acts 19:24-41, Demetrius and fellow silversmiths in Ephesus lost demand for idol products, statuettes of the goddess Artemis. Loss is attributed to growing numbers of the Christians who do not worship gods made with human hands. Highlights Christian population growth frightens diminished revenue of crafts creating statues. People against faith of Christians due to loss of money for their silversmiths. So their greedy economic gain keeps people in bondage connected to idols to enrich such masters. Growth of Christianity’s success turned believer from adherence to false gods. The more observant Christians increased so fewer people bought statuettes of idol gods to engage in religious rituals. It threatened economic production of an organization that profited greatly from idol worship. This trend in metropolitan Ephesus sets precedence for booming business that parasited profit at expense of souls. 15638085661946643585036976509700.jpgThey feared if whole of Asia persuaded by Paul to draw away from gods made with hands their trade may end. Idols  in disrepute and temple gods scorned to deprived all Asia and world of worship. And enraged, they shouted and rushed together to the theatre, dragging Gaius and Aristarchus the Macedonian Paul’s travelling-companions. Paul was not let in crowd by disciples but sent a message urging him not to venture into theatre. The crowd instructed Alexander, the Jews pushed forward to make defence before people. A town clerk quietened crowd and said, citizens of Ephesus city of Ephesian’s statue fell from heaven…. These men are not temple robbers or a blasphemer of gods, we are in danger of being charged with rioting so dismissed the assembly. Convincing nations of idol god worshippers, their god will not save them eternally was not well received. So stirred up anger and false charges so in the end they l left. Revelations 6 states some people will receive Christ and be saved but others reject God’s spirit filled Christian Gospel message and perish. As believers are ordained to go into all the world to preach the Gospel, Some seeds fall on good fertile ground will multiply a hundred fold others fall on hard soil and perish. Jesus said He does not care about the world but prays for all those who love him to be preserved until He returns. Pray for all people for God to open their spiritual eyes to see and hear the truth and be saved from kingdom of darkness into glolious kingdom of light of the Gospel. You can take the horse to the water but you cannot force them to drink. Share love of God and God saves them in Jesus Name. Pray for the whole family to be delivered from generations of idolatry convenants entered into by their ancestors and forefathers against God. Plead the Blood if Jesus and like Gidron, Hezekiah and Manasseh build a new altar to living God. Let deliverance ministers deal with idol gods, do not do so yourself. Put on the whole armour of God and cover yourself with Jesus blood and worship the Only One True God.IMG-20190723-WA0000.jpg

JERUSALEM THRONE OF GOD

1558698009471-2036304377.jpgJERUSALEM is the THRONE of the LORD and ALL Nations will gather there to the NAME of the LORD and so walk no more after imagination of their evil heart says Jeremiah 3:17. Jesus, Israel’s NEW KING since the last king Zedekiah over 2500 years ago rules YAHWEH’S KINGDOM as HIS appointed KING. Jesus will RULE GOD’S KINGDOM in Luke 1:31-33 as the GREATEST KING. The LORD GOD YAHWEH gave Jesus Throne of Israel from David and His Kingdom has no end. David said the LORD God told his Lord Jesus in Psalm 110:1, Matthew 22:44, Mark 12:36, Luke 20:42, Peter Acts 2:34 His enemies are under His Feet in Kingdom of Jesus on earth as Christ the Saviour Redeemer of Israel. Christ is David’s Lord over House of Israel, LORD God Authorized as KING Jesus, Superceding King David, Sitting at the Right Hand of God, puts all enemies under Jesus’ Feet as King David foretold. Revelations 1:15 says “as seventh angel sounds, great voices in heaven will say, The kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of our LORD God and Christ shall Reign Forever and Ever. Jesus will come back from heaven as KING in Acts 1:11 … “This Jesus taken to heaven will come in same way you saw him go to heaven.” KING Jesus will rule over Israel and all people on earth says Zechariah 14:9, The Lord shall be KING over all earth in that day there will be ONE Lord and His Name is Jesus. The KINGDOM of God Supercedes and destroys all existing governments. Jesus will RULE all people on earth as subjects of GOD in ETERNAL LIFE. 1 Kings 10:9 says God gave Throne of Israel to King David to rule HIS people. 2 Chronicles 6:6 says God CHOSE JERUSALEM City of all nations on earth to DWELL in. David honoured GOD’S CHOICE JERUSALEM to establish God’s Capital in Israel 3000 years ago due to perfect central location.15586986310501559442597.jpgDaniel 2:44 says “in days of these kings God of heaven set up HIS KINGDOM and shall never be destroyed. HIS KINGDOM will break in pieces all other kingdoms, and stand for ever. The Kingdom of God will enforce GOD’S System of justice in the world and all people follow the laws of Christ Micah 4:2, Many Nations shall say, Come and let us go to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the GOD of Jacob and HE WILL teach us HIS ways so we will walk in HIS path for the law from Zion is the WORD of the Lord from Jerusalem. Saints rule under King Jesus Christ, reign with Him and enforce laws teaching people as Revelations 2:26-27, he who overcomes and keeps My works to the end given POWER over nations to Rule them with a rod of iron to break in pieces as Jesus received of Father God. Revelations 5:10 says, God’s Kings and Priests Reign with Christ on earth. So all people required to go to Jerusalem each year to worship King Jesus as stated in Zechariah 14:16. “It shall come to pass those left of nations against Jerusalem shall go year to year to worship THE KING LORD of hosts to keep the feast of tabernacles.” Those who refuse to do so will have no rain on their lands. David wrote of his hope in resurrection from death so prophesied Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. David’s Old Testament prophecy foretold death of Christ and of His Glory in 1 Peter 1:11. Peter said in sermon on Day of Pentecost this passage from Psalm 16: “Men and brethren, the patriarch David knew God swore oath his body will rise to see Christ to sit on His Throne. After resurrection Christ’s Soul was not left in Hades or His flesh decayed in Acts 2:29-31. Peter said David awaits resurrection in Jesus Christ the Resurrected Messiah KING his Lord. As King David was proved right about the Resurrection of Jesus so is Jesus’ Reign imminent in Israel as God planned. 15587124616321559442597.jpgNew Temple built in Jerusalem for Jesus Christ’s return to the earth says Ezekiel 40 – 47 to worship God under King Jesus Prince of peace. All the people on earth will KNOW and serve GOD’S KINGDOM on earth. Jesus Christ overthrows all the human governments to establish GOD’S Authority over all the earth. Acts 3:20-21 says God WILL send Lord Jesus Christ, preached to you back from heaven after time of restitution of things God spoke of by the mouth of HIS Holy prophets since world began. All people on earth will be taught word of God as Habakkuk 2:14 says the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the GLORY of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. This change is ongoing until the final moment when God sets up His Kingdom in Jerusalem. KING David established JERUSALEM as capital of Israel 3000 years ago and God is taking back his Capital City on earth. Make sure you include yourself in God’s FREEWILL CHOICE given all people to make up their own minds. People come into the world as inviduals and face God as individuals so be sure to belong to YAHWEH’S KINGDOM. The whole world belongs exclusively to God so HE is exercising HIS POWER and Authority after 6000 years of HIS patience and HIS tolerance, reclaiming the world LIVING on HIS borrowed time of MERCY, GRACE, FORGIVENESS in Christ Jesus. Zechariah 8:3 says, the LORD returned to Zion and will DWELL in JERUSALEM GOD’S City and Mountain of the LORD of hosts. Glory, Glory, Glory to the Lamb upon the Throne, Messiah Jesus Christ.

IS SUFFERING GOD’S FAULT?

15583726787191346803934-1.jpgIs suffering God’s fault for not stopping pain with HIS Powerful Authority over all things? This question causes people to denounce God and turn their backs on the word of God. Despair over many unanswered questions affects people of faith so Jesus asked His disciples if they want to quit too. They answered there is nowhere else to go because Jesus has the word of eternal life in John 6:60-71. The Words of Eternal Life Jesus said to the twelve disciples, “Do you want to go away as well?” Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go, You have the WORDS of ETERNAL life.” This is CORE TRUTH of Christianity, so focus extends beyond life in the here and now into infinity. Like the disciples so many people want a PERFECT world without pain or sorrow so disappointed when it is beyond their control to stop suffering. They turn on God to stop and if nothing happens become vexed and angry with God for not answering their prayers. It is important to stop and first reflect the reality of circumstances all the way to the roots of the problems. Whatever the situation was God consulted before the onset of situation or consequences, risks analyzed in line with the word of God to confront God for events? All who truly understand the WILL of God HIS PLANS and Purpose know they are Higher than man’s thoughts so are not always fully predictable. Shock of inability to control decisions by God makes them feel hurt, helpless, out of control for sufferings. 15583732225621921606918-1.jpgAngry God is unreliable or failed them, badmouth God instead of checking what went wrong. So discouragement makes many abandon God when the cares of this world test their faith. Unlike those prophets who resort to false visions to keep their followers Jesus warned His disciples the going will be tough so they must be tough to get going by faith and endure to the end in Jesus Name. These WORDS of ETERNAL life mean soldiers of Christ know what they signed up for in the course of their duty in God’s call to defend their faith. Prophet Jeremiah experienced similar moments of ups and downs wavering in faith when his messages did not happen immediately as people expected. He declared people will be freed from captivity and return to their homeland as God PROMISED so expected instant result. They turned on God’s messenger so put him in a well to die in Egypt but Ebed-Melech an eunuch from Ethiopia saved his life granted the permission by King Zedekiah. Jeremiah PROPHECY comes to pass Israel nation is building houses, planting vineyards as he did by buying land in Anathoth. Jeremiah lived in old Assyrian empire but in two centuries it declined so fell. Its capital, Nineveh captured in 612 by Babylonians, Medes and Egypt briefly under 26th dynasty (664–525) not strong enough an empire. Nebuchadnezzar made Judah vassal of Assyria when God calls him to prophesy. He said he didn’t know how to speak because he was far too young so received Yahweh WORDS in his mouth and made a “prophet to the Nations.” His messages to the people condemns false worship, social injustice asking them to repent. He proclaimed 7th century Josiah’s reform purification of worship from pagan practices for all sacrificial rites in Temple of Jerusalem to establish social justice reforms in Jeremiah 11. Yahweh wants total loyalty to Covenant of Judea and inhabitants of Jerusalem. No reform made Jeremiah disillusioned because people dealt with externals of religion not inner spirit and ethical conduct. Jeremiah 7:1-15 and 26:1- 24, denounced people depending on Temple security so calls for genuine ethical reform. He predicted God would destroy Temple of Jerusalem like Shiloh, if they continued on that path. Jeremiah banned from Temple for God’s Justice, righteousness denounced selfishness, materialism and social injustice. Spoke against Egypt to his scribe, Baruch scroll message read cut into pieces and burnt. 15583735384841713680762.jpgJeremiah wrote another scroll, so added warning Judah to be destroyed at hands of Nebuchadnezzar’s army besieging Jerusalem. Babylonians put on throne of Judah, Zedekiah (597–586 BCE) followed Jeremiah’s counsel paying Babylonians tribute 10 years had alliance with Egypt. And Nebuchadnezzar’s army captured Jerusalem again in August 586 Yahweh allowed king of Babylonian. Jeremiah’s message to submit to yoke of Babylonia but on way to land of tribe of Benjamin, charged with desertion, in pit saved by prompt action of the Ethiopian eunuch Ebed-melech. Jerusalem fell, Jeremiah promised people bright joyful FUTURE but continued to rebuke fellow countrymen in exile in Egypt. Loyal to prophetic call suffered inner doubts and conflicts in confessions in Jereremiah: 11:18–12:6; 15:10–21; 17:9–10, 14–18; 18:18–23; 20:7–12, 14–18. Jeremiah’s conflict between his deep sense of duty, delivers Yahweh’s message to people. In Jeremiah’s despondent expressions he called God “a deceitful brook. . . waters that fail God deceived and overpowered him.” Yet exalts God: “Your WORDS give me joy and delight my heart so Yahweh is a “dread warrior” fighting by his side. Jeremiah pronounced God’s judgment on the people for their wickedness, false insincere worship and failure to trust in Yahweh on national affairs. He said sin is a weakness and stubbornness of evil heart, some foreign nations more loyal to pagan false deities than Judah was to Yahweh real God by their disobedience to God. Jeremiah spoke on Repentance than any other prophet calls on men to turn away from their wicked ways not depend on idols, false gods and return to their Covenant by loyalty to Yahweh. To repent and live in obedience to Yahweh’s will individually or as nations. Jeremiah, despite despair gives HOPE for the future said, “Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Houses, fields, vineyards shall again be bought in this land,” is his prophetic future of New Covenant in Jeremiah 31:31–34.

1558372979931-1264398575.jpgJeremiah suffered but he continued to prophesy Yahweh’s New Covenant to Israel will fulfill old Mosaic Covenant so Yahweh will write HIS law on the hearts of men to know God directly to receive HIS FORGIVENESS. This New Covenant prophecy in New Testament is through Jesus’ BLOOD. Though Israel is punished so many times for idolatory, GOD’S LOVE is forever. When the Ark was captured in 1 Samuel 4:22, God’s Glory exiled from Israel to Philistine to save Israel from exile. Yahweh broke curse of Covenants for HIS people and defeated gods of Philistia by plague of Ashdod in 1 Samuel 5 and 6. Philistines moved Ark, tumours or hemorrhoids (emerods) afflicted people in towns of: Ashdod, Gath, Ekron. Septuagint says mice in country punishment increased tumours in Ashdod (vv. 6-8), tumours and panic in Gath by Ark (vv. 9,10a), tumours, panic in Ekron (vv. 10b-12). Plagues caused by “Yahweh’s hand” in 1Samuel 5:6 Ashdod put Ark in temple of Dagon statue found prostates in front of Ark next morning. The statue of Dagon put in place again prostrates next morning with head and hands broken off. Philistine captivity of Ark brought plagues, humiliated gods of Philistines is returned of full treasure to Israel. Philistines like 1 Samuel 6:6 ends plagues by guilt offering of five golden tumours and five gold mice of the five Philistine rulers. The Ark stops at Beth Shemesh before a permanent home at Kiriath-Jearim. The righteous may fall 7 or more times but GOD RESTORES for HIS NAME SAKE. Jeremiah’s MESSAGE to all Nations is no matter what Israel’s sin GOD RESTORES them for HIS GLORY to prove to all who believe, HE IS LOVE. HE FORGIVES ALL SINNERS JUST AS HE FORGIVES ISRAEL. The Dagon nations God used to punish Israel are destroyed by God and so must repent too in Jesus Name. Despite his sufferings Jeremiah’s PROPHECY continues daily to come into existence by GOD’S POWER. Jeremiah encourages the people to call directly on God in Jeremiah 33:3 as He will answer them. The question is will their requests be in line with God’s Words? What will be their response if God says wait, not now or no will they endure suffering to the end? God’s words says the sufferings of this world is nothing compared to what the LORD has for those who LOVE HIM. Phillipians 1:27 as one believes in Christ so one becomes a partaker of his suffering with great rewards in Jesus Name.

GREAT BANQUET KING’S SON

IMG-20190518-WA0001-3.jpgJesus compares God’s heavenly Kingdom to wedding banquet a king prepared for his son in Matthew 22:2. Many people invited agreed to come but on the banquet day all refused to attend in verses 4-5 giving many excuses. Some of the king’s servants were mistreated or killed in some cases in verse 6. The king sent his army to avenge death of servants in verse 7 extends invitations to anyone servants found so the wedding hall is full in verses 8-10. During feast the king noticed one man was not wearing wedding clothes in verse 11 but had no answer why so is thrown out from the feast “into outer darkness of weeping and gnashing of teeth in verses 12-13. Jesus ends with statement “Many called, invited but few chosen” in verse 14. One said he bought piece of land he went to see in verse 18. Another bought oxen on the way to yoke them in verse 19. Another gave excuse he was newly married so could not come in verse 20. The master of the house heard excuses was angry told servants to go to on streets, alleyways and invite “the poor, crippled, blind and lame” in verse 21.The KING is Father God and HIS Son honoured at banquet is Jesus Christ who came to save but many do not receive him in John 1:11. God sends invitation to all people but some reject Jesus as LORD so refuse to believe in Him. Many prophets, including John the Baptist and disciples murdered in Matthew 14:10. The KING’S anger, wrath, vengeance, desolation in Revelations is on all who reject salvation in Jesus, judged in Hebrews 10:29-31. Their deliberate choice to reject God’s offer by freewill choice in Luke 13:34 by excuses of permissive will of God permanently left God’s Heavenly Kingdom. The wedding invitation extends to everyone, total strangers, good, bad who “did not deserve to come in accept WORD of God sent to all not worthy of eternal life” in Acts 13:46). So GOSPEL MESSAGE Jesus taught, available to all to come just as they are. Garments of righteousness clothes people washed in the BLOOD of the LAMB. Acceptance of Jesus and repentance in HIS Blood is the means Lamb uses to makes all worthy to boldly enter PRESENCE of the KING. So to refuse to put on garment of righteousness provided means wearing old clothes unfit for the purpose of the banquet celebration. 15581851649821346803934.jpgJesus teaches conditional offer KING is obedience to HIS standard requirements to meet criteria of submission to God. God’s righteousness in Philippians 3:9 provides salvation to cover multitude of sins of filthy rags in Isaiah 64:6. Adam and Eve’s sin God took away, replaced with the skins of sacrificed animals in Genesis 3:7, 21. And in Revelation 7:14 God provides heavenly white robes washed in the BLOOD of the Lamb. The KING God provides a wedding garment of salvation for all mankind but some want things done their own way. The WAY of God is the Cross of Christ HIS only way to salvation in John 14:6. Those who refuse to submit to God’s WAY thrown out into the darkness. God sends them into an “outer darkness” eternally as Christ said, “many are invited but few are chosen.” So invitations extends to all people to hear call of God but many reject it. The world rejects Jesus so some people don’t celebrate His salvation. God judges thems as a result of their own choice to approve of rejection of Christ with dire consequences. Kingdom of heaven demands all put away their own old garments by faith to accept righteousness God provides in Christ. All those who reject God’s gift of salvation for their own “good” works will spend eternity in hell. Those who mock or ridicule God’s salvation plan by a self-righteous rejection miss Jesus cross of Calvary VICTORY. God wants all to make sure to receive God’s salvation plan to put on new garments and not retain old filthy garments of sin in God’s PRESENCE. God’s desire is seek to dwell in the HOUSE of the LORD all the days of life to behold the beauty of the LORD and enquire in HIS Temple. In time of trouble HE hides in HIS pavilion in HIS secret tabernacle and sets upon the ROCK of Ages and lifts up above enemies round about. And so offer in HIS tabernacle sacrifices of joy, sing, yes sing praises to the LORD Most High in Jesus Name says Psalms 27:4-6.

CHILDREN SIGNS&WONDERS

1556533286134-1635185667.jpgChildren are for signs and wonders from God to Glorify God and to help in society. Families need to understand Jesus loves and values all children in all nations. Children are the gifted assets to parents and women do what is beyond comprehension as childbearers. Women are absolutely celebrated as co-creators with God contributing to life cycle and replenish earth. Fulfil God’s command to mulitiply and bear fruit from seed of man and egg of woman is the gift of life. Adults love their children and children love their parents. God’s word says train and teach children Godly values of love, selfrespect, good manners and etiquette for appropriate interaction with others. The value of life is priceless and preserved with dignity even if differences exists by diversity or perspectives. Children are precious to God, Jesus loves little children allowed in His company with their parents and in meetings to learn about God. This is priority in life highly endorsed by God for salvation in the Kingdom of God. 1557243794465-1635185667.jpgSimeon dedicated Jesus to God in the Temple and blessed Him. Simeon said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is appointed for a fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign about a sword piercing Mary’s soul. Hidden thoughts from many hearts will be revealed in Luke 2:34-35. Jesus brings changes to all who accept Him. Simeon’s prophesy is Jesus will be “a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for GLORY to God’s people Israel in Luke 2:32. Jesus brings ruin in Israel of people like Simeon who worship in the Temple destroyed. Mary is told of literal piercing of her soul due suffering and pain of Jesus she endures. John wrote of the piercing of Jesus’ side after His death in prophesy fulfillment. So emotional turmoil Mary experienced are all treasured things pondering them in her heart in Luke 2:19, 50-51. Messiah Jesus arrived as Simeon was waiting all his life to see the “consolation of Israel.”1557243187090-1635185667.jpgJesus in the Temple during the Passover impressed the learned Synagogue and priests while doing the business of His Father God. But has created upheavals disturbing people in Israel, including mother of Messiah. Her pain is thought losing Jesus unmarried, compassionate son executed for the crimes He did not commit in His life brings Mary pain. A mother to all and His brothers standing outside desiring to see Him, answered, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do in Luke 8:19-21. Simeon’s prophesy comforts her like all mothers who embrace all children as their own. Jesus is a child destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel and a sign so that thoughts of many hearts are revealed.” Peter denied Jesus three times as Judas betrayed him, Pharaseees, Saduccees lied about Him and, people healed and helped voted crucify Him. These are the some thoughts of many hearts revealed.1556578915698-1635185667.jpgToday’s society needs to build a sound foundation from an early childhood like Jesus to grow and apply good values. A child without sound foundation in God is at the mercy of any man-made ideas that do cannot fulfill the void reserved exclusively to be filled only by God. The strong bond created in child connects to God and great reward to bless the child. Father God is the patent owner creator of humans with privileged access in the hearts and minds of children. They are never too young to understand agape LOVE of God for them at any level. The Sunday schools and school assemblies are essential for nurturing their spirit and minds in God in Christ if Christians.1557234117641-1635185667.jpg Placing emphasis on only the academic achievement at an expense of wellbeing lacks growth and the deeper hope for a meaningful life. Focus on only aesthetic external physical appearance or looks, price tag designer labels and superficial ideas deprive them of inner peace and inner strength in God. Some think they are worth the price tag, under pressure to be the first to be seen in those latest most expensive clothing. And gadgets to show off to get ‘street credit respect’ is the cause of competition to impress. A child worries more about external label than contents of character and effects of behaviour on others. Playing games are other sources of addiction they resort so buy the series to play without focussing more on academic excellence. These are some of the challenges facing a society desperate to create the perfect utopia of an academic achievement league table. pictures-jesus-photos-images-jesus-christ.jpgChildren are stressed in the class system society which thinks some are of higher value so deserve better treatment than others deprived. Children bear brunt of doing without a proper meal or sleep to their detriment. Peering children early to socialise them creates us versus them postcode society with a lack of trust for adults separated from them. Parents are too busy chasing money to provide for children often emotionally and socially retarded. Such explosive children feel a right of entitlement without a common sense of the due diligence and care for other people. They are not allowed to be corrected by parents so grow up with an attitude of disregard for Authority and the significant others in charge of them. Some feel like victims despite the privilege compared to other children all over the world. 1556578302852-1635185667.jpgAnd permanently angry, ungrateful and unthankful to the parents who sacrifice time, effort and resources to make their lives better than previous generations. So never content want more and more even if they have abundance beyond an average child globally. Not allowed to be part of family work ethic are made lazy by addiction to games or substance abuse to numb their perceived pains of life. Unrealistic demands to be perfect to fit in with friends causes damage to children growing mimicking adults yet without adult maturity and experience. Jesus warned about these behaviours during the last days of unruly children out of control and a menace to society. IMG-20190409-WA0005.jpgThere is need for rewriting foundation for early years to develop children like Finland to nurture and to protect them from vultures of society. Each time the children hurt each other or the others, accusing fingers are pointed at them without recognising the root of these problems created by society. Parents are treated as lazy for spending quality time with their children. Schools are so understaffed short of budgets education has become position on league table. So naming and shaming them than proper training to prepare children to become self-sufficient to have good success in life. Education, academic performance is only 20% of life so the rest 80% must be taught to prepare people to cope. It’s deception to make education end in life because of billions of educated people unemployed, exist on debt in the world.IMG-20190329-WA0000.jpg Their miseducations deprives children of practical survival skills and essential spatial knowledge. It frustrates young people without ability to farm, garden, do practical hands on life work due to misconception that is a blue collar job beneath them. Older generations piggy back them for life to help them make it but unaware of sacrifices involves and unwilling to support them in old age. So feel too sophisticated to live within their budget to give back to parents seen as a nuisance to their luxury pleasures of life. Honour parents and adults to bring blessings and so it is well with you to live long. A wise person receives good advise to be a wiser person in life but the Bible says the fool gets angry and hates you for advising them. Be kind in all you do towards others because it is seeds sown God sends back to you years later when you do not remember those past years. Life is beautiful and simple to understand because God creates all things beautiful in HIS OWN time. You came individual in this world and will face God alone to give an account of yourself no matter who is backing you in life. The ideas children have must be guided with patience to educate them about the real world. Their perspective may seem superficial but with support and guidance helped to develop better as audacious, bold, confident, resilient people with good success. Some want good things of life not understanding the years behind the scenes preparing through hard work. The end result seen is after years of toiling, sacrifices and sweat. It is necessary to teach children value for time, value for life to be who they truly are with humility, selfrespect without ego attitude problems. Children need incredible encouragement of hope.IMG-20190427-WA0000.jpgIMG-20190428-WA0000.jpgChildren are part of a bigger society that expects the best from them. Investment of quality time spent with their family is essential to bond with them. Above all is to teach them to love themselves first, to have agape love for all others. Kindness, Mercy is far better than cruelty, anger and hatred which destroys person. The society’s excuse is to blame government for lack of funds for youth centres but a need exists to talk to children at home as individuals too. They need their love and support that makes them trust their family more than naive friends. God is LOVE so Spirit of God’s LOVE POWER in you enables you to help children to feel loved and part of society. Abandoned by the system many rely on themselves to make wrong choices and decisions. The fact that they are clothed, fed, have own bedroom, latest gadgets is not enough to meet their emotional needs of peace, joy acceptance if adults too busy to interact one to one with them daily. There is no excuse for not helping them young and consistently with their hobbies at home, music, piano lessons. Parents can afford other things but complain of inability to invest in future of their own children. It is time redesign educational foundation to include interests of children not force them to study subjects they hate. Most are under stress or pressure to perform take their anger on others. Society plays part in responsibility for how they turn up as adults.
