Revelation 2:7 

February 21, 2019

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.’

The one who conquers is the one who perseveres against the wiles of Satan. To that one, to all who are granted the glorious name of Conquer, will be given the privilege of eating from the Tree of Life. But notice the location of this tree—it is in the paradise of God. We are to be given access to the Garden of Eden from which mankind has been banned for centuries. Hallelujah, praise the Savior.

Revelation 1:9-10 

February 20, 2019

I, John, your brother and partner in the tribulation and the kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet.

My immediate thought was "Wow, to be in the Spirit on the Lord's Day." But should that not be my goal each Lord's Day; to spend the day in the Spirit? A day spent from can to can't as the old saying goes, in the Spirit. A day of worship, a day of prayer and fellowship with other saints, a day of refreshment and renewal, a day of observing and guarding the day set aside by the LORD, God, the Almighty. Help me, Holy Spirit so that I too may hear that loud voice like a trumpet.

Jude 1:20-23 

February 19, 2019

But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.

How, now shall I act like someone who is listening to the guidance of the Spirit? Jude packs a lot into a few well-chosen words. Only two sentences. I am to ensure that I am growing in the faith. I am to spread the Word to all others by bringing them out of the threat of eternal damnation.

Jude 1:17-19

February 18, 2019

But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. They said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.

Is this a guide to identification of people who are not hearing and following the guidance of the Spirit? It may not be complete, but it indeed is a good guide. Someone who scoffs at the explicit directions of the Spirit; who consistently follows their passions rather than the Word's; fomenting arguments and division among the saints, and is more interested in the attractions of the world, rather than drawing closer to the LORD, God the Almighty.

Psalm 119:66

February 17, 2019

Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

This has to be a foundational verse for me today. There will be many challenges to my judgment and knowledge today, may each be met by the judgment and knowledge that can only come from You. Be my docent of life today and every day.

1 John 5:6-8 

February 16, 2019

This is he who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not by the water only but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.

John reported in John 19:34-35 that a soldier pierced Jesus' side and blood and water poured out. Here he ties it all together as evidence of my salvation. How about yours?

"Now this water and blood are comprehensive of all that is necessary and effectual to our salvation. By the water, our souls are washed and purified for heaven and the region of saints in light. By the blood God is glorified, his law is honoured, and his vindictive excellences are illustrated and displayed. " Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible

1 John 4:11-13 

February 15, 2019

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.

It is that overwhelming awareness of love that passes between two saints that identifies the indwelling of the LORD, God, the Almighty in the person of God, the Holy Spirit. And it does not depend upon a face to face meeting. In this day and age of virtual communications, that awareness of the indwelling Presence comes through virtual acquaintances. It is rich and grows.

1 John 4:1-6

February 14, 2019

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Now here's the way to start the conversaton when someone comes knocking at my door and offers to discuss their faith with me."Do you confess that Jesus Christ is the Incarnate Son of the living God?" If the answer is no, but I would like to discuss that with you, my suggestion is to wish them a good day. Offering to pray for their salvation should be a conversation stopper.

1 John 3:23-24 

February 13, 2019

And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.

Another one of those passages that present the Holy Spirit as the heavenly guarantor of my salvation. I know that my salvation is complete and assured by the presence of the Holy Spirit working through me and gently nudging me into a Godly life.

2 Peter 1:19-21 

February 12, 2019

And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

What a comforting passage. To know that I must be able to identify the work of the Holy Spirit in a prophecy and that the proof of the pudding lies in the fulfillment of that prophecy.

Deuteronomy 18:20-22But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.'And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the LORD has not spoken?'—when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not to be afraid of him.

There have been several times in my life when someone has announced that they have a word of prophecy concerning me. I cannot recall a single instance where the "word" came to pass.

1 Peter 4:12-14 

February 11, 2019

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.

I keep thinking of the apostles in Acts 5:41-42 Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name. And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and preaching that the Christ is Jesus.

Am I willing to suffer for His namesake? Do I recognize the blessing when I am reviled for my faith? Often the answer is “Maybe” Lord, forgive me for those instances when I am guilty of refusing the blessing.

Psalm 119:62

February 10, 2019

At midnight I rise to praise you, because of your righteous rules.

Help me, Lord, to use these periods of wakefulness during the night as a call to worship and praise You; as a time to meditate on Your Word and Your Law, seeking understanding for my life.
