Pain

Jesus has been with me since  I was in my mother womb. As a child, when I was scared and did not understand why I did not fit anywhere as I grew up. I used to talk to, as Catholics call, to my  Guardian Angel and, at 4 and 5 years old, kept trying to catch a glimpse of Him by turning my head fast to the side of my body. It never happened but for a few year I never gave up, LOL.

The orphanage made me mean after spending some time with my grandmother, Nonna, when many years later people told me, I was a sunshine baby, the orphanage changed that sunshine into deep sadness and anger.

The nuns had sticks and I got more than my share because I was different already a sick child.

I remember little being so small but,  my earliest memory was watching my mother walking away as I cried, mamma,  mamma and She kept on walking  I , I grew a little mean cold and sad there.

Why Chuck?

Hi,

I am going to tell you why I post so much of Chuck Missler.

I, for years, had many questions and could not find a teacher that gave me a spiritual and more knowledge of His word.

Finally, after praying for many years I came across a “Christian” woman. Is a long story of how God uses even your enemies as she was to answer your prayers, Well, Chuck does not know everything but most of what he teaches in my heart and by reading the Bible myself, gives me confidence and lots of my questions were answered.

I have a terrible memory so I still need to learn and learn LOL,

I do not forget in my spirit but I do have a terrible memory so, instead of telling you in my own words, I rather post the original teacher,

Later,

Pat.

 Esther #1 Ch. 1-2 by Chuck Missler

Topic: Esther
Scripture(s): Esther 1-2

Description: Esther is a fascinating book in the Old Testament, it does not mention God in any obvious way but His hand of preservation over the Jewish people is seen in a very dramatic way. In a historical sense, the events in Esther took place between Ezra chapter 6 & 7. It starts with king Xeres of Persia in his winter palace preparing for a huge 180-day long feast just prior to him going to war with the Greek empire. During the feat the king commands that the queen be brought before him and all his noblemen who are there, the queen, however, refuses to come for reasons which are unknown, this angers the king greatly as it sets a very bad example to his lords and also to everyone in the empire, so the king decides to find a replacement for the her. After a search is conducted he chose Esther, a Jewess who was the niece of Mordecai one of the king’s lords, and a descendant of Kish, king Sauls father. Mordecai discovers a plot to kill the king and informs Esther the queen who tells the king and the conspirators were killed probably by impaling, but Mordecai received no reward.. yet.

 Esther #2 Ch. 3-4 by Chuck Missler

Topic: Esther
Scripture(s): Esther 3-4

Description: Haman is ‘the bad guy’ of the story of Esther, interestingly he was the descendant of Agag king of the Amalekites, a man whom King Saul (of whom Mordecai was a descendant) spared against the will of God, it is interesting that if Saul had obeyed the Lord in wiping out the Amalekites the events of Esther might never have taken place, there is an important lesson here in that our disobedience toward God may have far-reaching consequences beyond our own lives. Haman was prompted to be the ‘prime minister’ of the Persian empire and this everyone had to pay homage to him, which they did, all except Mordecai and Haman was greatly angered by this and sought revenge, not just against Mordecai but against his people, the Jews. Haman went to the king and lied and asks that all the jews were killed in a holocaust fashion, the king doesn’t check the facts but agrees and a decree is sent through all the empire. Mordecai is greatly troubled by this and mourns and tells his niece Esther, the queen, that she has come to her place of status for such a time as this.

 Esther #3 Ch. 5-7 by Chuck Missler

Topic: Esther
Scripture(s): Esther 5-7

Description: After 3 days of fasting a prayer Esther puts her life on the line and goes and sees the king without his permission, which was a capital offense. The king shows her mercy and asks what her request is, she asks that she would prepare 2 banquets for the king and Haman. This was a great honor for Haman, who is overjoyed by it, so they have their banquet and the king asks again what Esther’s request is, but again she bides her time. Haman on his way home sees Mordecai still mourning and is greatly angered that he still does not honor him. That night the king is unable to sleep and asks for the chronicles to be read to him, in this, he discovers that Mordecai has saved his life and not been rewarded yet. So the king asks Haman what should be done to the man whom the king wishes to honor, Haman thinking the king means him advises him how and the king commands that Haman honors Mordecai!! If this wasn’t enough for Haman the day after Esther exposes his plot to the king to kill her and all the jews the king flies of into a rage and demands Haman be killed on the very instrument of execution that he had prepared for Mordecai. A problem still remained, however, the empire had declared that all Jews should be killed on a certain day and that day was looming.

 Esther #4 Ch. 8-10 by Chuck Missler

Topic: Esther
Scripture(s): Esther 8-10

Description: Haman, the enemy of the jews, is now dead but that doesn’t mean that the Israelites are safe. The king could not stop his own edict due to the laws of the Persian empire. Mordecai was made the prime minister of the whole empire and so was given the task of resolving the issue by the king. He set about this by creating new laws that would protect the jews on the day they were set to be massacred. So when the day finally came that all the jews should be killed they fought for their lives and were helped by the authorities. At this time approximately 76 thousand people were put to death throughout the whole empire spanning from India to North Africa but the jews did not take any of the spoil from their enemies. At this time Haman’s 10 sons were also put to death and their bodies hung up in order to disgrace them, this finally meant the end the Amalekites, whom King Saul had disobediently spared hundreds of years prior.

 Esther #5 Macrocodes in Esther Part 1 by Chuck Missler

Topic: Esther

Description: The name Esther means ‘something hidden’, Martin Luther argues that the book should be removed from the canon of scripture and one of his main reasons was that the book doesn’t even mention the name of the Lord, but Luther was wrong because Esther does mention the name of God it’s just encoded in the text. The Bible is full of different codes from equidistant letter sequences to macrocodes, the Word of God has depth which can never be fathomed, the interesting point about some of the codes is that encoded words are always found in passages where the plain text bears some relevance to the encoded word, a phenomenon which is unique to the Bible. The Hebrew name for Jesus, Y’shua is found in the Old Testament over 5,500 times including all major messianic prophecies and even to the extent in Isaiah 53 encoded in the text is ‘Yeshua is my name’. Incredible! Another interesting point is the title Pilate wrote and placed on the cross above the Lord ‘Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews’ where in Hebrew the first letter of each word spells ‘YHWH’ the unutterable name of God that He revealed to Moses. Definitely a message for anyone interested in Bible codes.

 Esther #6 Macrocodes in Esther Part 2 by Chuck Missler

Topic: Esther

Description: Macrocodes are hidden codes within a body of information that is encrypted within over a wide section of the information, within the Word of God they are better known as types. Dr. Missler puts forward the argument that the book of Esther is not only a fascinating and dramatic narrative but is also a story of our own redemption. The book starts with the king (who represents our soulish nature) and his fall and separation from the queen (the spiritual side), but the king searches out another queen and is united with her, unknown to him though is that the new queen Esther is a child of adoption to Mordecai the Jew (who represents the Spirit of God). Haman and his sons represent the flesh and the works of the flesh respectively, interestingly the meanings of each of Haman’s son’s names is a different attribute of the fallen nature of man, whether independence or self-righteousness etc. Using the types that Dr. Missler puts forward we have to ask who rules within us, is it Haman (the flesh) or Mordecai (the Spirit). Interestingly the king is unaware of Haman’s true intent until he is exposed by the Esther, Haman is deposed and later put to death, as the flesh must be as the flesh can perform many ‘godly’ works but will never surrender as long as we are this side of eternity, and Mordecai given rule of the empire. Who rules in our hearts?

Honest Use Of Scripture

“Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” Mark 7:14

Jesus uttered these sharp words of rebuke to the scribes and Pharisees, who had encumbered the plain teachings of Scripture with numerous “interpretations” that enabled them to ignore whatever teachings they found inconvenient. The Lord Jesus Himself always took the Scriptures literally and as of divine authority, and so should we.

Furthermore, He taught that every word was true and authoritative: “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5 18) He also said that “the scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:45).

Skeptics may pose certain difficulties in the Bible, evolutionists may ridicule its account of creation, and sinners, in general, may try to wriggle away from its moral constraints, but the Scripture cannot be broken! Jesus said, “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth, not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” (Jhon 12:48.: He Himself is the living Word of God, and we dare not tamper with the written Word inspired by the Holy Spirit. Christ, of course, could and did in some cases extend and apply the Old Testament Scriptures, because He Himself was their Author, but He never questioned their factuality or literal accuracy, and neither should we.

Nevertheless, many modern “Christian” intellectuals and cultists are following in the example of the Pharisees rather than that of Christ, “wresting” the Scriptures for their gain but “unto their own destruction” (2 Peter 3:16) God has spoken plainly in His Word. It is our responsibility to believe and do what He says.

from Days of Praise.

 

And behold, a woman who had suffered from a discharge of blood for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I will be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.
Matthew 9:20‭-‬22 ESV

Do I Want Healing?

We see again, courage accompanied action and led to stepping towards Jesus for healing! But not only did the New Testament depict a courageous woman ready to receive healing she knew in her heart could only come from a touch of the Lord through Jesus, we see in the Old Testament God would heal as well. The psalmist proclaimed God heals the brokenhearted and through the prophet Jeremiah God said he would give back health and heal wounds.

Perhaps today, like the woman we read of with the issue of blood, we are ready to step towards healing found in Jesus Christ.

When reading today’s passages, what thoughts came to mind as you pondered the woman who had exhausted all resources?

Are there areas where you may feel you have essentially come to the end of all your abilities and options in the natural?

Are you hoping to encounter the Lord and experience healing in your spirit, heart, mind or body?

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, we come before You with the hopes of making or petitions known. Some of us are ready for healing. We trust You to heal the wounded places in our spirit, heart, mind, and body – or any combination of these areas of our lives. Help us to trust You for healing as we call out to You and enter into Your presence to “touch the hem of Your garment” in our own places of prayer. As we take a closer look in the coming days, I pray specifically for healing in the spirit, where the pride may be a permanent infection, festering and embedding itself, but like a cancer not always making itself known. Bring healing in this area FIRST – so our eyes will see and ears hear, if there may be other areas in our souls needing healing. Thank you Jesus Christ, amen.

LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST


Death was from Adam, But Life in Christ. Its only in Christ that we can live and love life.

God is not a taker of life. He is the giver of it. His wish for us is salvation and a good life “With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.” Psalm 91:16. His desire is for us to have and live a life that is fully sufficient and bountiful supplies of very possible good things that we may require.
But death through sin reigned from Adam which had threatened to derail God’s set direction for His Children. Praise God that nothing can get the better of Him. From Him is the gift of life which is “the gift by the grace of one Man, Jesus Christ (that) abound to manyRom 5:15

God hates sin as much as He sees death as an enemy. We know that death came through sin but the righteousness that leads to life came from Christ Jesus “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made a live1Cor 15:22(NKJV)
Those who hates God and His wisdom does so against their own soul. They have loved death rather than accept the redemption that Christ offers by His blood(Prov 8:36; Hosea 13:14)

To be able to claim the promise of a good life of many happy days and also be a beneficiary of Christs finished work, we need to love God and His creation, restrain our tongue from speaking evil, always stand by the truth, turn away from evil to do good and actively seek to coexist peaceably with everyone.(1 Peter 3:1012). Above all, if we love God, then we have no other options outside of His will. Jesus said: “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:21(NKJV)

Life and whatever it is sustained with is from God. It is His hearts desire that we live and enjoy life to its full extent. Everything we own in this life(including life itself) is a gift from God. It was Gods thought out plan to get everything prepared and available for us in Christ Jesus even before we were conceived in the womb. This should be very clear to us and we have to understand that by “the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, (He) has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” 2 Tim 1:10

Amen

Thanksgivings

I sometimes forget how much God has given and still gives me.

I was very angry earlier for a little thing a small argument I had with, my husband.

I know that in part the anger is caused by some medication I am taking hopefully for a short time for the pain in my back.

I went to sulk in the bedroom and I remembered what usually helps me but did not want to do.

What I found out over time is that if I feel terrible or have a negative emotion, I feel so much better if I start to thank the Lord.

I decided to try it but had little hope it would change my angry heart.

Well, as I started to thank Him grudging, it became a true thanksgiving and God showed me I wrong I was. Without any more hesitation (in case I changed my mind) I ran to the kitchen where Toby was and told him sincerely that I was sorry and he was right.

Wow, as usual, Jesus comes through.

God knows what I am going through and loves me even when I am angry for no reason.

I want to thank my Lord, my joy, Jesus for putting everything in His order.

Thank you God,

later,

Pat.
