Blessing God ~ Crystal Clarity

I am one of those people who really cannot wait to see Heaven. I think about it all the time. It is said that people who are heavenly minded are of no earthly good, however the more heavenly minded a person is, the more good on Earth they are able to do. The Bible tells us that those who read Revelation out loud will be blessed. Stop reading this right now and go read, out loud the book of Revelation. Do it as often as you can. You will get excited to do more for the Kingdom of God than you ever thought possible. I pray that the fire of Jesus gets ignited in you today!

Blessing God ~ Two by Two

Two by Two“Two by Two”

And he called the twelve and began to send them out two by two,
– Mark 6:7

When we think of evangelism we often think of the guy standing on a box shouting like a crazy man to get people to listen to what God has to say. Did you know that is not the way Jesus intended people to preach his word? He gave us many examples of how we, as his disciples are to witness to others. We are to shine our light into the darkness, to witness by example, and when we go out he encourages us to not be alone but to go out together so we can support each other. Two by two is his call. Is there a friend that can pray with you and support you and possibly go out together to witness to friends in your community? You will be surprised at how God blesses you when you follow his insights, commands, and directives and not your own.

Blessing God ~ Dread

My 5 year old son is obsessed with Batman and Spider-man. For me, as I’m sure is the case for you, spiders = dread! I cannot tell you how many spiders I have capture and released. However the more menacing they are, the more a mind I have to smash them dead. How odd that they are so small yet we big, scary humans are so fearful of them. Spiders are very symbolic in the occult as are many other dreadful beings such as snakes, scorpions, wolves, bats and various other dread-inducing animals. In the movie Batman, Bruce Wayne is asked by Alfred, “Why bats, sir?” his response, “Bats frighten me. It is time my enemies share in my dread.” Fear is a source of power. I wonder why we look to other symbols for power when our one true God is all we need. What is most dreadful in reading the below verses is the very last ones. How dreadful to be given up on by God! Ouch!

Creeping Spider“Dread”

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”

– Romans 1:18-25
