Chapter 19 in Proverbs for today: (Jan 19) (Living Bible)

19 Better to be poor and honest than rich[a] and dishonest.

It is dangerous and sinful to rush into the unknown.

A man may ruin his chances by his own foolishness and then blame it on the Lord!

A wealthy man has many “friends”; the poor man has none left.

Punish false witnesses. Track down liars.

Many beg favors from a man who is generous; everyone is his friend!

A poor man’s own brothers turn away from him in embarrassment;[b] how much more his friends! He calls after them, but they are gone.

He who loves wisdom loves his own best interest and will be a success.

A false witness shall be punished, and a liar shall be caught.

10 It doesn’t seem right for a fool to succeed or for a slave to rule over princes!

11 A wise man restrains his anger and overlooks insults. This is to his credit.

12 The king’s anger is as dangerous as a lion’s. But his approval is as refreshing as the dew on grass.

13 A rebellious son is a calamity to his father, and a nagging wife annoys like constant dripping.

14 A father can give his sons homes and riches, but only the Lord can give them understanding wives.

15 A lazy man sleeps soundly—and he goes hungry!

16 Keep the commandments and keep your life; despising them means death.

17 When you help the poor you are lending to the Lord—and he pays wonderful interest on your loan!

18 Discipline your son in his early years while there is hope. If you don’t, you will ruin his life.

19 A short-tempered man must bear his own penalty; you can’t do much to help him. If you try once, you must try a dozen times!

20 Get all the advice you can and be wise the rest of your life.

21 Man proposes, but God disposes.

22 Kindness makes a man attractive. And it is better to be poor than dishonest.

23 Reverence for God gives life, happiness, and protection from harm.

24 Some men are so lazy they won’t even feed themselves!

25 Punish a mocker and others will learn from his example. Reprove a wise man, and he will be the wiser.

26 A son who mistreats his father or mother is a public disgrace.

27 Stop listening to teaching that contradicts what you know is right.

28 A worthless witness cares nothing for truth—he enjoys his sinning too much.

29 Mockers and rebels shall be severely punished.

Chapter 7 in (Genesis) for today: (January 19) (Living Bible)

Finally the day came when the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the boat with all your family, for among all the people of the earth, I consider you alone to be righteous. Bring in the animals, too—a pair of each, except those kinds I have chosen for eating and for sacrifice: take seven pairs of each of them, and seven pairs[a] of every kind of bird. Thus there will be every kind of life reproducing again after the flood has ended. One week from today I will begin forty days and nights of rain; and all the animals and birds and reptiles I have made will die.”

So Noah did everything the Lord commanded him. He was 600 years old when the flood came. He boarded the boat with his wife and sons and their wives, to escape the flood. 8-9 With him were all the various kinds of animals—those for eating and sacrifice, and those that were not, and the birds and reptiles. They came into the boat in pairs, male and female, just as God commanded Noah.

10-12 One week later, when Noah was 600 years, two months, and seventeen days old, the rain came down in mighty torrents from the sky, and the subterranean waters burst forth upon the earth for forty days and nights. 13 But Noah had gone into the boat that very day with his wife and his sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and their wives. 14-15 With them in the boat were pairs of every kind of animal—domestic and wild—and reptiles and birds of every sort. 16 Two by two they came, male and female, just as God had commanded. Then the Lord God[b] closed the door and shut them in.

17 For forty days the roaring floods prevailed, covering the ground and lifting the boat high above the earth. 18 As the water rose higher and higher above the ground, the boat floated safely upon it; 19 until finally the water covered all the high mountains under the whole heaven, 20 standing twenty-two feet and more above the highest peaks. 21 And all living things upon the earth perished—birds, domestic and wild animals, and reptiles and all mankind— 22 everything that breathed and lived upon dry land. 23 All existence on the earth was blotted out—man and animals alike, and reptiles and birds. God destroyed them all, leaving only Noah alive, and those with him in the boat. 24 And the water covered the earth 150 days.

Chapter 7 in (Matthew) for today: (January 19) (Living Bible)

“Don’t criticize, and then you won’t be criticized. For others will treat you as you treat them. And why worry about a speck in the eye of a brother when you have a board in your own? Should you say, ‘Friend, let me help you get that speck out of your eye,’ when you can’t even see because of the board in your own? Hypocrite! First get rid of the board. Then you can see to help your brother.

“Don’t give holy things to depraved men. Don’t give pearls to swine! They will trample the pearls and turn and attack you.

“Ask, and you will be given what you ask for. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Anyone who seeks, finds. If only you will knock, the door will open. If a child asks his father for a loaf of bread, will he be given a stone instead? 10 If he asks for fish, will he be given a poisonous snake? Of course not! 11 And if you hard-hearted, sinful men know how to give good gifts to your children, won’t your Father in heaven even more certainly give good gifts to those who ask him for them?

12 “Do for others what you want them to do for you. This is the teaching of the laws of Moses in a nutshell.[a]

13 “Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate! The highway to hell[b] is broad, and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose its easy way. 14 But the Gateway to Life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it.

15 “Beware of false teachers who come disguised as harmless sheep, but are wolves and will tear you apart. 16 You can detect them by the way they act, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit. You need never confuse grapevines with thorn bushes or figs with thistles. 17 Different kinds of fruit trees can quickly be identified by examining their fruit. 18 A variety that produces delicious fruit never produces an inedible kind. And a tree producing an inedible kind can’t produce what is good. 19 So the trees having the inedible fruit are chopped down and thrown on the fire. 20 Yes, the way to identify a tree or a person[c] is by the kind of fruit produced.

21 “Not all who sound religious are really godly people. They may refer to me as ‘Lord,’ but still won’t get to heaven. For the decisive question is whether they obey my Father in heaven. 22 At the Judgment[d] many will tell me, ‘Lord, Lord, we told others about you and used your name to cast out demons and to do many other great miracles.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘You have never been mine.[e] Go away, for your deeds are evil.’

24 “All who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents, and the floods rise and the storm winds beat against his house, it won’t collapse, for it is built on rock.

26 “But those who hear my instructions and ignore them are foolish, like a man who builds his house on sand. 27 For when the rains and floods come, and storm winds beat against his house, it will fall with a mighty crash.” 28 The crowds were amazed at Jesus’ sermons, 29 for he taught as one who had great authority, and not as their Jewish leaders.[f]

Remembering the Death and Resurrection of Jesus!

PRAY OVER THIS:

“Then Peter said, ‘Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.’”

(Acts 3:6)

PONDER THIS:

The apostles were not preaching facts about a dead Christ. That’s the only way you can explain their boldness. How do you explain the Early Church? How do you explain the fact that Peter, the man who was talking, was eventually crucified? Tradition holds that when they were getting ready to crucify Peter, Peter said, “Look, don’t crucify me right side up, crucify me upside down. I’m not worthy to even be crucified as my Lord was crucified.” This was the same man who denied Jesus three times on the night He was arrested. Where did Peter get that boldness? Through the risen Christ, Peter had no fear of death. Of course, he didn’t want to be crucified, but he had no fear of death because he knew his Savior was alive.

  • How does it give you boldness to remember that Jesus has conquered death?

  • What would look different in your life if you lived in this boldness each day?

PRACTICE THIS:

Take specific steps today to act in the name of Jesus with boldness because of the Truth of His Resurrection.

The Greatest Thing…

The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

======================================

Question: Who is this Jesus everyone is talking about?

Why is He so important in terms of what happens to my Soul, which resides in my body, until my body dies?
First, let me tell you that the Creator of the Universe, God the Father, truly Loves you and every member of the Human Race which He also created.
He also wants you and every human’s soul  to be in Heaven with Him when your body dies here on earth. The part of you that goes to Heaven when you die is your soul.
Everyone has a soul that merely resides within your body as a tenant; the soul NEVER dies. Again, Father God Loves every human that has ever been born since Adam and Eve, 6,000 years ago, and He WANTS your soul to live for Eternity, to which there is NO END, with Him! BUT there is a problem:
Ever since Adam and Eve the ENTIRE Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE and there is only ONE CURE for it! Please remember that God created the Universe AND the Human Race, making Him the Sovereign King of the Universe, in other words:
HE SETS THE RULES!
The disease that we all have, as soon as we are conceived in our Mother’s Womb, is SIN! Adam and Eve broke God’s only Commandment at the time while they were in the Garden of Eden: “Don’t eat of the fruit of the forbidden tree!”
When they disobeyed that one Commandment, they SINNED! They were no longer HOLY and God threw them out of the Garden and, as He had told them: Their bodies would eventually die BUT their souls would live on for Eternity.
2,000 years later, God gave Moses the 10 Commandments for the people to live by. He set the Rule that if anyone broke one of those Commandments they were to sacrifice an unblemished lamb to God and God seeing the blood of that lamb, would forgive that person’s sins.
2,000 years after that, which brings us to 2,000 years ago, Father God showed His Mercy and Grace upon the entire human race by sending His Only Begotten Son: Jesus, to this earth, as Prophesied hundreds of years earlier in the Old Testament (Isaiah 7:14), as a human baby, born of a Virgin named Mary in the City of Bethlehem of Judea!

THIS is the Jesus everyone is talking about today!

He lived a perfectly SINLESS life, performed thousands of miracles during the 3 years that He Ministered from the age of 30 until He was 33. His last miracle was raising a good friend of His, named Lazarus, from the dead after he had been dead and in a tomb in Bethany for FOUR DAYS!

This miracle, seen by many Priests and Rabbis and common people of Bethany, INFURIATED the Priests and Rabbis because all of the people were starting to follow Jesus instead of them! They then started to plan a way to get rid of Jesus!
After Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, He and His 12 Disciples went on in to Jerusalem for the Passover to Commemorate God’s freeing the Nation of Israel from the Egyptians hundreds of years earlier.
While in Jerusalem preparing for the Passover Dinner, one of Jesus’ Disciples, a traitor named Judas Iscariot, secretly met with the Priests and Rabbis and accepted 30 pieces of silver to BETRAY Jesus to them during the Passover Celebration.
During the Passover Supper with His 12 Disciples, including Judas, Jesus revealed the NEW COVENANT to them. This New Covenant would require Jesus to shed His Sinless Blood as Payment to Father God for the sins of the ENTIRE HUMAN RACE!
Later that night, as Jesus and all of the Disciples, except Judas, were Praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, Judas showed up with soldiers sent by the Priests and Rabbis to arrest Jesus.
Judas was leading them and walked up and kissed Jesus on the cheek identifying Him to the soldiers.
They arrested Him, took Him before the Priests and Rabbis, was given a mock trial and turned over to the Roman soldiers to be beaten, have a Crown of Thorns crushed down upon His Head and forced to carry His Own Cross through the streets of Jerusalem, out the gates to a place called Golgotha where they Nailed Jesus to the Cross He had been carrying and stood it up between two thieves.
Jesus COULD have called upon 72,000 Angels standing there with swords drawn ready to rescue Him, but He told them not to, that He had to Sacrifice His Life as Payment for the SINS of the entire Human Race.
After hanging on that Cross for 6 hours, as He was about to die, God the Father, supernaturally placed the SINS of the entire Human Race upon Him and then turned His Back upon His Only Begotten Son. Jesus saw His Father do this and shouted: “My God, My God, Why hast Thou forsaken Me?” And then dropped His Head, said “It is Finished” and died.
To make certain that He was dead, a Roman soldier forced a spear into His Side and Blood and Water spilled out.
Two followers of Jesus then went to the Roman authorites to obtain permission to remove Jesus’ Body from the Cross. They took His Body down, covered it with a long white sheet and carried it to a newly hewn grave where they laid His dead Body upon a pedestal and walked out.
Roman soldiers then rolled a large stone against the entrance, sealed it and stood guard.
On the morning of the third day, Father God, brought His Son Jesus BACK TO LIFE!
The stone was rolled away and Jesus made 10 appearances to 500 people after His Resurrection before ascending back into Heaven in front of His remaining Disciples commanding them to go to the entire world telling them about “My Death, Burial and Resurrection!”
So those are the FACTS concerning Jesus.
If, by Faith, you believe all of that to be true: That Jesus is the Son of God, that He died on that Cross for all of your sins, was Resurrected on the 3rd Day, we now call Easter and ascended back into Heaven to sit upon His Throne to the Right-Hand Side of God the Father and you can lift up a Prayer to God the Father Praying that you “Confess that you are a sinner and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior by Faith, Repent of your sins and commit to trying to follow Him for the rest of your life, in Jesus’ Name.”
If you say that Prayer and really mean it, you will be Spiritually “Born Again”, your name will be Permanently written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and your Place in Heaven will be reserved in Heaven for ETERNITY!
CONGRATULATIONS!
Now go and tell the World about Jesus, the ONLY way into Heaven!
By the way, I must tell you that if you do NOT accept Jesus as your Personal Savior before you die, your soul will be eternally separated from God and on Judgment Day will be thrown into the Eternal Lake of Fire (Rev 20:15) with Satan.
It is your choice.

God Bless you,

Bob Lewis,Vietnam Vet,

The Great Commission

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

========================

GET OUT OF THE BOAT!

I’m sure most of you know of the Story in the Holy Bible about Jesus sending all 12 of His Disciples off in a boat in the Sea of Galilee to go to the other side while He sent 5,000 men and their families home after feeding them, Miraculously, with only 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread (Please Google: Matthew 14:13-21).

Jesus then went up into the nearby mountain to Pray.

As the Disciples sailed to about the half-way point across the sea, a tremendous storm came up threatening to swamp the boat with water and drown all of them!

Suddenly, they looked out to sea and saw someone WALKING TOWARDS THEM ON THE WATER!

It was Jesus!

Peter recognized Him and yelled out to Him: “Lord, if it is You, Command me to come to You!”

Jesus answered “Yes, Come!”

And Peter, FULL OF FAITH AND COURAGE, kept his eyes upon Jesus and STEPPED OUT OF THE BOAT and started walking on the water towards Jesus (Please Google: Matthew 14:29).

Peter didn’t even think about what the OTHER 11 Disciples thought about him taking this step of Faith!

HE JUST DID IT!

Peter actually walked a short ways ON THE WATER toward Jesus while looking steadfastly upon Jesus!

Unfortunately, when he took his eyes OFF of Jesus and started looking at the wind and the waves HE STARTED SINKING!

He cried out to Jesus to save him, which Jesus did, of course, then they both got into the boat and Jesus shouted out to the wind and the sea: “Peace, be still!”

And the wind and sea immediately calmed down!

And ALL 12 Disciples finally realized that Jesus truly MUST be the Son of God! (Google: Matthew 28:14-22)

EVEN THOUGH these same 12 men had already seen Jesus perform literally THOUSANDS of Miracles, beginning with changing 5 30-gallon pots of water into Fine Wine at the Wedding Feast in Cana to the one they had just observed where He fed 5,000 men AND their families with only 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread, Jesus KNEW that their hearts were STILL hardened toward whether He was REALLY the SON OF GOD!

THIS MIRACLE CONVINCED THEM!

My point today goes back to where PETER SAW JESUS WALKING ON THE WATER and asked Him to COMMAND him to walk upon the water TO HIM!

HE GOT OUT OF THE BOAT, keeping his eyes upon Jesus, WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT WHAT THE OTHERS IN THE BOAT THOUGHT ABOUT THIS!

I Repeat: WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT WHAT THE OTHERS IN THE BOAT THOUGHT ABOUT THIS!

My question is this: Are YOU afraid to “Step out of the Boat” and start TRULY WITNESSING FOR JESUS, telling the world about Him being the ONLY way to be Born-Again, like you were when you were really FIRST BORN AT YOUR BIRTH, when your Soul’s Name was already written in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Google Rev 20:15) when you were conceived in your precious Mother’s womb and REMOVED when you committed your first SIN after reaching the age of accountability and knew the difference between right and wrong!

At that moment, your name was BLOTTED out of the Book of Life!

2,000 years ago our Father God, in His Mercy and Grace, provided a way that ALL members (Souls) of the entire Human Race could get their names Re-Written into the Lamb’s Book of Life and be “Born-Again” when He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth as a little Baby, Born of the Virgin Mary, with a Primary Purpose of Shedding His Blood on a Cross at Calvary as Payment for ALL OF THE SINS OF THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE, WHICH HE DID,  IF they would only Believe that:

  • Jesus was and is the Son of God;

  • He died upon that Cross for their sins;

  • He was buried in a borrowed tomb and

  • Rose from the dead on the 3rd Day called Easter;

  • He made at least 10 appearances to over 500 people afterwards;

  • He Ascended back into Heaven 40-days later on a cloud in front of the Galileans;

  • He is now sitting on His Throne at the Right-Hand of His Father, our Sovereign King and Creator of the entire Universe and Beyond, as our: High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior!

  • The Father will one day send His Son BACK to earth, at the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:17), when the SOULS of ALL Born-Again Human Beings, whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, will take on their Heavenly Bodies and RISE to meet Him in the sky and enter Heaven to live FOREVER (Eternity with no end).

  • Those that are NOT Born-Again will be left behind and have to endure what will be called The Tribulation Period for seven (7) years (Revelation 7:14, and Matthew 24:21-29). Those who become Christians AFTER the Rapture will live through (or perish during) the Tribulation.

  • After the Tribulation, Christ will return to establish his Kingdom on earth for 1,000 years during which time, Satan will be bound.

  • At the END of Christ’s 1,000 year Reign, Satan will be released, will assemble a large contingent and try to attack Christ’s Earthly Kingdom! He will be destroyed by God, the Father, with fire and Satan will be thrown into the Lake of Fire for Eternity!

  • The next event will be the Great White Throne Judgment when ALL Souls that have NOT accepted Christ as their Personal Savior by Faith, Repented of their sins and given Christ Complete control of their lives prior to that Judgment Day, meaning that they DID NOT accept Christ’s Death on the Cross as Payment for all of their sins, will have to defend THEMSELVES for all of their sins before God: THERE WILL BE NO DEFENSE and ALL of them will be taken by Angels and thrown into the Lake of Fire with Satan and all of his demons FOR ETERNITY. (Revelation 20:15)

  • Those Souls that HAVE been Born-Again and have their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THAT JUDGMENT, they will have their Eternal Bodies and live for Eternity in Heaven.

At the end of ALL FOUR GOSPELS, Jesus admonished us to “Get out of the Boat” without worrying what others will say or think about your Actions and TELL THE WORLD ABOUT OUR LORD AND SAVIOR: JESUS THE CHRIST!

I challenge you to have the Courage to do it!

My Christian Blog, which I have spoken and written every night since 2011, has reached 175 Countries and over 2,838 Cities within those Countries. There are still 31 Countries that we have NOT reached.

There are over 6 Billion People around the world WHO HAVE NEVER EVEN HEARD TH NAME OF JESUS!

At least, have the courage to forward or COPY and forward this message to all of your Social Media and email Contacts as I do every night.

Please don’t be ashamed of Him!

If you are ashamed of Him on earth, He will be ashamed of you in front of the Father!

In His Service,

Bob Lewis
