A DAILY LIGHT BITE

DOES AND DON’T’S

Some say that Christianity or religion is just a bunch of does and don’ts meted out by a judgmental God! Well, one things for sure, when my son was little I often had to say don’t do that, or you can do that! Did that make me a harsh, judgemental dad? Of course not, I did it because I love him and wanted the best for him and I knew because I’m older and wiser that something’s are harmful, thus I said no or don’t or don’t touch, but if it was good and helpful I would of course say yes!!

God is so much wiser than any of us, and because He is all-knowing He say’s DON’T, to something’s, and DO, to others! Here are some beauties from Psalm 37 and I challenge anyone to say that God HASN’T got our best interests in mind here!

Psalm 37

Verse 1 don’t worry and don’t be envious of those who do wrong.

Verse 3 [Instead], do trust in the Lord and do good, then you will live safely in the land and prosper.

Verse 7 [Do] be still in the presence of the Lord and [do] wait for Him to act. [Or my paraphrase, ‘Stop fidgeting, keep still, don’t be restless, lay in God’s arms and in His time He’ll act’!]

Verse 8 don’t be angry and don’t be full of rage. Do not envy others- it only leads to harm.

Verse 34 don’t be impatient for the Lord to act! Travel steadily along His path.

Pretty sage and sound advise if you ask me. So go and do the do’s and don’t do the don’ts! [Sounds a bit like a Police song!] LOL

A Christmas ADVENTure,

December 31st 2018 [Day 31]

I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures. In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. John 1:1 AMPD


I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures. In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. John 1:1 AMP.

And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us. Verse 14a

Thoughts. We have been looking at the 2 advents of Christ Jesus, one past the other yet to be. We know that Christos, God’s Son the Word of God our Saviour was with God in the [eternal past] and that Word [Logos] became flesh as we have seen in our studies of the 1st advent. He was with God in the eternal ages past and He was there with God at the creation of the heaven’s and the earth, and as the Messiah He was promised as the world’s redeemer as we read in Gen 3.15. However, with the second advent of Christ, all things will begin to be made new again and what was lost in the beginning shall be restored fully and more in the end.

Exercise. Give thanks to God for His awesome plan of restoration and redemption.

Prayers. Supplications. Pray God’s Kingdom come and will be done in 2019. Every blessing to all my readers for 2019 may it be God’s year for you to find God’s purposes.

A Christmas ADVENTure.

December 30th 2018 [Day 30]

Image result for advent prophecy pics

I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures. For unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder. These will be his royal titles: “Wonderful,” “Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Everlasting Father,” “The Prince of Peace.” His ever-expanding, peaceful government will never end. He will rule with perfect fairness and justice from the throne of his father David. He will bring true justice and peace to all the nations of the world. This is going to happen because the Lord of heaven’s armies has dedicated himself to do it! Isaiah 9:6-7 Living Bible (TLB)

Thoughts. And so we conclude our study of advents and how scripture was fulfilled in the first advent and if any have been fulfilled prior to 2nd advent?

FIRST ADVENT Nations would seek the counsel of Jesse’s descendant Bible prophecy: Isaiah 11:1-10 Prophecy written: Between 701-681 BC Prophecy fulfilled: By the birth of Jesus about 2000 years ago.

In Isaiah 11:1-10, the prophet Isaiah speaks of a ruler who would be a descendant of Jesse. Jesse was the father of ancient Israel’s great King David.                                                  

This descendant would rule with true justice and true faith, and he would establish true peace. This peace would be so great that even wild animals would be able to lie down next to one another. This descendant would also become a standard for people throughout the world. And, this descendant would be sought by people throughout the world. This is an important prophecy for Christians because we believe that Jesus is the fulfilment of this Old Testament promise. Jesus, as explained in the New Testament, is a descendant of Jesse. And Jesus has become a standard for peoples throughout the world. In fact, Christianity is the first religion to spread to every country in the world. The words of Jesus, which speak of true justice, true faith and true peace, have been taught to people in every country in the world. We Christians also believe that Jesus will return in the future to establish a kingdom on earth, a kingdom of justice and righteousness.

A child would be born and a son would be given.
Bible prophecy: Isaiah 9:6 Prophecy written: Between 701-681 BC Prophecy fulfilled: At the birth of Jesus about 2000 years ago Luke 2:10-14

Isaiah 9:6 “For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. Now look at Luke 2:10-14:

But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people. This very day in David’s town your Savior was born—Christ the Lord! And this is what will prove it to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great army of heaven’s angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:  “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!”

  1. A child is born! A baby in a manger! A real life flesh and blood baby! “You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
  2. A Son is given!  Christ [The Son] the Lord!
  3. The government will rest on his shoulders.  Your Savior was born.
  4. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!”

SECOND ADVENT

Certain prophecies had not come to pass 100 years ago. But over the past 80-100 years some have come to pass which I believe relate to the end-times! Here are a couple.

Isaiah said Israel’s fruit would fill the earth. Bible passage. Isaiah 27:6   Written: Perhaps between 701-681 BC                             Fulfilled: late 1900s and continuing today.

In Isaiah 27:6, the prophet said Israel would one day blossom and fill the world with fruit. This prophecy has been at least partially fulfilled, literally and symbolically. From AD 70 to the early 1900s Israel was a barren wasteland mainly swampland. Today, the land of Israel, which had been barren for centuries, is a leading producer of agricultural products, exporting food to many countries. This prophecy also has been fulfilled symbolically with the worldwide spread of Christianity. Christianity, which began with Jesus in Israel, now has about 2 billion plus followers worldwide.

Ezekiel prophesied prosperity for modern-day Israel Bible passage. Ezekiel 36:11 Written: Between 593-571 BC                                                    Fulfilled: late 1900s – today

In Ezekiel 36:11, the prophet said that there would come a time when Israel would be more prosperous than it was in the past. The Bible describes Israel as being a prosperous nation during the time of King David and King Solomon about 3000 years ago. But, Ezekiel knew a very different Israel. In Ezekiel’s day (he lived about 2600 years ago), the northern kingdom of Israel already had been decimated by the Assyrians, and the southern kingdom (called Judah) was being destroyed by the Babylonians. In the centuries that followed these destruction’s, Jews rebuilt the city of Jerusalem, but their homeland was destroyed again, by the Romans, about 2000 years ago [70 AD]. Since then, a majority of Jews had lived in exile. But during the past 100 years, millions of Jews from around the world moved to Israel and they have been rebuilding the country once again. Today, Israel again is an independent nation, as it was in the days of King David, and it is one of the world’s most prosperous countries. In 1999, Israel had the highest per capita Gross Domestic Product of any nearby country, even though the surrounding countries have many oil resources.

Exercise. “The Word became flesh”. [John 1:14] The word can become flesh today, in our mouths! When we pray the word of God we speak creative words. God’s word became flesh 2000 years ago at the birth of Jesus Christ, let’s ‘earth’ His word today in our lives and the lives of others. More from John 1 tomorrow to finish this years Christmas studies.

Prayers. Supplications. Almighty God, Creator and King of all things. Your word say’s “I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it”. So I pray this specifically for Gateway Christian Centre and for the Church of Jesus Christ world wide for today and the new year of 2019, that we will take more ground from the enemy and smash down his gates and release captives into salvation. Your word says God that “we should increase and not decrease and be fruitful and multiply!” So I pray this for Gateway and your Church worldwide that we would expand and subdue the earth for your glory. Almighty One I have spoken out these life forming word and I ask you to make them so with the amen, may it be so, yes it is done, yes and amen.

A Christmas ADVENTure.

December 29th 2018 [Day 29]

Image result for advent prophecy pics

I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures. For unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder. These will be his royal titles: “Wonderful,” “Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Everlasting Father,” “The Prince of Peace.” His ever-expanding, peaceful government will never end. He will rule with perfect fairness and justice from the throne of his father David. He will bring true justice and peace to all the nations of the world. This is going to happen because the Lord of heaven’s armies has dedicated himself to do it! Isaiah 9:6-7 Living Bible (TLB)

Thoughts. We continue looking at these 2 advents and how scripture was fulfilled in the first advent and if any have been fulfilled prior to 2nd advent.

FIRST ADVENT The Messiah would come from the tribe of Judah Bible prophecy: Genesis 49:10 Prophecy written: As early as 1400 BC Prophecy fulfilled: Fulfilled  Luke 3:23-34 and Matthew 1:1-16.

Genesis 49:10 NIV The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his. In Genesis 49:10, Jacob is blessing his 12 sons. This blessing was also a prophecy. Jacob told his son Judah that his descendants would be rulers and that one of his descendants will be an ultimate ruler. According to the NIV translation: “The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his.” Christians acknowledge that this is a reference to Jesus Christ, whose kingdom will have no end. Jesus was born about 2000 years after Jacob died. Jesus’ ancestry is traced back to Jacob’s son, Judah, in Luke 3:23-34 and in Matthew 1:1-16. Today, there are some estimates that claim that there are as many as 2 billion Christians worldwide who follow the teachings of Jesus, many nations and peoples follow and obey Him as this scripture said they would and not just Jews!

The Messiah would be a descendant of King David Jeremiah 23:5 NIV“The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.
Bible prophecy Jeremiah 23:5                                                                                        Prophecy written: Sometime between 626-586 BC Prophecy fulfilled: By the birth of Jesus about 2000 years ago

In Jeremiah 23:5, as well as in other Bible prophecies, we are told that the Messiah would be a descendant of King David. The New Testament books of Matthew and Luke trace back Jesus’ genealogy to King David. (Some scholars believe that the genealogy in Matthew is Jesus’ legal line, through his adoptive father, Joseph, and that the genealogy in Luke is Jesus’ bloodline through Mary).

SECOND ADVENT

A Jewish homeland had to be reestablished in the Middle East: Geopolitically, the central focus of end-time events is Jerusalem and its environs, what many people refer to as the Holy Land. Luke 21 is a parallel chapter to Matthew 24. Notice Luke’s account of Christ’s long prophecy that answered the disciples’ questions: “Teacher, . . . when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?”  [Luke 21:7] In response, Jesus showed that Jerusalem would be the central focus of the political and military upheavals that would immediately precede His return: “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near . . . For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled”  ( Luke 21:20-22). [Full preterists and partial preterists would not agree with this]! Anyone living a century ago would have found these words nearly impossible to comprehend. Jerusalem in ancient times had been fought over countless times, but for four centuries from 1517 the city had been at peace within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire. Jews lived there as a minority under Turkish rule. But this was going to change dramatically during the course of the 20th century. It had to change for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy to take place

From AD 70, Israel was a barren wasteland and definitely not a nation in itself. Then in 1948  the Arab Palestinian economy collapsed and 250,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled. On 14 May 1948, the day before the expiration of the British Mandate, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, declared “the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz-Israel, to be known as the State of Israel”. So for me, [at least] on that day I believe prophetic end-time scripture was fulfilled.

Exercise. Watch closely the events this coming year in the middle east. Especially regards Israel, Syria, Iran, Russia and Turkey.

Prayers. Supplications. For the Peace, Prosperity and Protection of Israel. For yourself too and your family and friends. Try to make a daily habit of praying psalm 91 over all these situations and apply it personally in prayer.

A Christmas ADVENTure.

December 28th 2018 [Day 28]

Image result for advent prophecy pics

I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures. For unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder. These will be his royal titles: “Wonderful,” “Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Everlasting Father,” “The Prince of Peace.” His ever-expanding, peaceful government will never end. He will rule with perfect fairness and justice from the throne of his father David. He will bring true justice and peace to all the nations of the world. This is going to happen because the Lord of heaven’s armies has dedicated himself to do it! Isaiah 9:6-7 Living Bible (TLB)

Thoughts. So, for the last few days of these devotions I will return to the main theme! “ADVENTS”. I will look at some of the Old Testament prophecies that were fulfilled in Christ Jesus and certain prophecies pertaining to His 2nd advent and if they have been fulfilled or are yet to come to pass!

FIRST ADVENT: Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel [God is with us] Isaiah 7:14. Bible prophecy: Isaiah 7:14 Isaiah prophesied the virgin birth of Jesus. Prophecy written: Between 701-681 BC Prophecy fulfilled. Matthew 1:18-23 & Luke 1:26-38

In Isaiah 7:14, the prophet Isaiah addresses the “house of David,” meaning the family and descendants of King David, and speaks of a virgin being pregnant with a child, and giving birth to the child. Isaiah says this in the context of it being a sign from God. He also says that the child would be referred to as “Emmanuel,” which means, “God with us.” The New Testament books of Matthew and Luke record details involving the birth of Jesus, who was born about 700 years after the time of Isaiah, saying that he was born of the virgin Mary and is the Son of God. Because he is the Son of God, Jesus literally can be referred to as “God with us.”

But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah; from you One shall come forth for Me [who is] to be Ruler in Israel, His goings forth (appearances) are from long ago, from ancient days.” Micah 5:2

Micah prophesied the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Bible prophecy: Micah 5:2 Prophecy written: Sometime between 750-686 BC Prophecy fulfilled. Matthew 2:1-6 & Luke 2:4, 11 & 15

Image result for O little town of Bethlehem pics

In Micah 5:2, there is a prophecy that reveals that Bethlehem would be the birthplace of the Messiah. As pointed out in the book, 100 Prophecies, by George Konig and Ray Konig: “The prophecy is effective in a simple way: It eliminates all other cities and towns throughout the world as a place in which the Messiah would be born. It narrows the possibilities to one tiny village just south of Jerusalem.” And throughout the span of the past 27 centuries, from the days of the prophet Micah up through the present time, Bethlehem is credited as being the birthplace for only one person who is widely known throughout the world. And that person is Jesus Christ. The New Testament books of Matthew and Luke name the town of Bethlehem as the birthplace of Jesus. Matthew 2:1-6 describes the birth of Jesus as the fulfillment of Micah’s prophecy.


SECOND ADVENT: Zechariah prophesied that the Messiah would touch down on the earth at His 2nd coming on the mount of Olives:  “Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.  In that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives, which lies before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in half from the east to the west by a very large valley, and half of the mountain will move toward the north and half of it toward the south”. Zechariah 14:3-4

This has not yet happened, however it was foretold [again] by angels at Christ’s ascension some 33 years after the First advent occurred! “After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them.  “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!” Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, a distance of half a mile. [Acts 1:9-12]

Exercise. As we observe scripture fulfilled from the Old to the New Testaments it should cause us [1] to be in awe of God more than ever, [2] have a thankful heart that as God knows the end from the beginning in the past, He also knows the end from the beginning in our present/future situations. [3] If God forewarned the former nations [especially Israel] of the first advent of Messiah, will He not have forewarned the generations from Pentecost till now of events preceding Messiah’s 2nd advent? [4] Check your own end-times viewpoint! Check that it’s up to date and then watch and pray!
Prayers. Supplications. WATCH, PRAY, PRAISE GOD AND GIVE THANKS in all things.

A Christmas ADVENTure.

December 27th 2018 [Day 27]

I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures.  But when the right time came, the time God decided on, he sent his Son, born of a woman, born as a Jew. Galatians 4:4 Living Bible (TLB)

But when the right time finally came, God sent his own Son. He came as the son of a human mother and lived under the Jewish Law. GNT

But when [in God’s plan] the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the [regulations of the] Law. AMP

Thoughts.  God is never too early nor too late. His timing is perfect, impeccable and precise. “AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME!” Not a moment before nor a moment after! So whatever you are waiting for it’s on its way as long as it is the will of God. So in the meantime as you wait: Keep expecting, keep praising and keep thanking Him beforehand.

Exercise. Watch the DVD of the humble birth and circumstances of the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Visualise and ponder: God’s Perfect timing [under Roman occupation], God’s Perfect place for the birth [in squalor], God’s Perfect choice of earthly parents [a poor teenage mother and poor rugged stepfather carpenter], God’s perfect ways [not how we would have expected it!!] That’s why most Jews missed it. It didn’t happen how they would visualise it happening. God’s ways are not our ways neither are His thoughts as our thoughts. So, what about Christ’s second advent? Are we, am I expecting it to happen how I would like it to happen? WE have the prophetic scriptures! He is another year closer to His second advent, so let’s make sure we don’t miss the clues! Let’s make this year the one that we truly watch and pray.

A Christmas ADVENTURE.

December 26th 2018 [Day 26]

I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures. ‘The Magi threw themselves down before him, worshiping. Then they opened their presents and gave him gold, frankincense and myrrh’

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

Thoughts Let us conclude this study of the Magi as we look at how far the Magi actually went to worship Jesus. We have seen that they travelled almost a thousand miles to spend may be an hour or perhaps even more in the presence of Jesus Christ. However, we may perhaps forget: To double that distance! They had to go back home after their short stay! That’s another 8 or 900 miles, and another 12-18 months! However, upon closer inspection of the narrative we read:- “Having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they left for their own country by a different road”. Matthew 2:12 International Standard Version! So they didn’t return by the shortest route because Herod would’ve had them killed! So it is my guess that they would’ve gone north north east across the Golan heights, in to northern Syria and down in to what we now know as Iraq!  I’m guessing the return journey probably took them over a 1000 miles or more and probably nearer 2 yrs to return. Just few a few hours in Christ’s presence! Was it worth it? Absolutely. It would’ve been life changing for these folk. How far are we prepared to go for Jesus? How costly is our worship?

Did the Magi have family? Loved ones? children? Grandchildren? Job commitments? They would have had to leave all of that behind them for a round journey of probably 2000 miles or more and 31/2 -4 years or more! That’s costly in time! How much cost financially? Not including the very costly gifts! Man, this is staggering!! Ah, I hear some say, they were rich! Yes and sometimes they’re the worst for losing money and time. Whether rich or poor, it’s irrelevant, we all have 24 hours in a day no matter who we are!

How much of those 24 hours do we give to our wonderful Saviour? God only asks for 10% of our income, so the other 90% is our own! So it doesn’t matter how little or how much money we earn, we only have to give God 1 a tenth. Time and money are probably two of our greatest commodities, and how we relate them to God is an indicator of our worship of Him, because worship is not just those nice songs we sing at Church, but it’s a daily lifestyle!

Exercise.”Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship”. Romans 12:1 Just do it.

Prayers. Supplications.

What can I give Him, [Pray for what you can give Him this coming new year.]

Poor as I am? [Ask Him to meet all your needs.]

If I were a shepherd [Pray that the good Shepherd will lead you this new year.]

I would bring a lamb [Give thanks to Christ the Lamb for saving you, pray for unsaved family]

If I were a wise man [Pray for God’s wisdom this coming new year.]

I would do my part, [Ask Him what part you can play this year.]

Yet what I can I give Him, [Ask Him what you can give Him to bless others.]

Give my heart. [Repent of things the past 12 months and give Him your heart afresh this coming new year.]

A Christmas ADVENTure.

December 25th 2018 [Day 25]

I’ll be using my S.T.E.P.S. method of study for this course! Scriptures. Thoughts.  Exercise. Prayers. Supplications.

Scriptures. For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift.[a] So now everyone who believes in him[b] will never perish but experience everlasting life. John 3:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

  1. John 3:16 Or “God proved he loved the world by giving his Son.”
  2. John 3:16 Or “believe into him.” Salvation and regeneration must be by faith. True faith (Gr. pistis) has a number of components: acceptance, embracing something (someone) as truth, union with God and his Word, and an inner confidence that God alone is enough.

Thoughts.  Click on to or copy/paste and Watch the DVD and think on the theme of AGAPE this Christmastime.

.

Exercise.  But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us. Romans 5:8 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly! (TPT)

But this is how God demonstrates his own love for us: the Messiah died for us while we were still sinners.

God puts His love [agape] into action/s. He shows, demonstrates and proves He loves us by sending the Messiah to sacrifice His life in exchange for ours, for mine. God so loved the world [you and I that He gave! So here’s the challenge today and over Christmas: “What are you going to do to demonstrate God’s love to others through you?????????????????????

Prayers. Supplications. Prayer how you need to and these below. HAPPY CHRISTMAS
