Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be brought low and the crooked shall be made straight and the rough ways shall be made smooth, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God. Luke 3:5,6

    John is proclaiming the good news of the Messiah and how He will fill every mountain and the hills shall be brought low. Praise God all flesh will see the salvation of God. This is the type of good news that we need to hear in a world filled with darkness. May the light of the Lord shine in your hearts my brothers and sisters in Christ.

  • #Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. Luke 3:2-4
    John the Baptist came preaching the baptism of repentance just like Isaiah the prophet said to Prepare ye the way of the Lord. John is fulfilling his role as the forerunner of the Lord Jesus Christ. What a blessing John was to his family and though he preceeded the Lord in birth six months, he is doing just what God commanded him. Let us be faithful in this generation that we live in too proclaiming the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose the third day for our justification.

  • #And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. Luke 2:52

    Jesus went home to Nazareth and this was the second of the silent time of Jesus from twelve until thirty. He increased in favor with God and with the man. He went about doing good.

  • #Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the Child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem and Joseph and his mother knew not. And it came to pass, that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. And when they saw Him, they were amazed and His mother said unto Him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And He said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business? Luke 2:41,42,43,46,47,48,49

    Doctor Luke is the only gospel writer to point out this story of the Lord Jesus as He was twelve, He tarried behind His parents in the temple sitting in the midst of doctors, both hearing them and asking questions while His parents were looking for Him among His kinsfolk and acquaintance. Jesus amazed the doctors with His understanding and the questions that He asked. Once His parents found Him, His mother Mary said to Him why have you dealt with us thus? Your father Joseph was anxiously looking for you sorrowing. Then Jesus replied, did you not know, that I must be about my Father's business? The Heavenly Father must have first place in our lives at all times. That is what Jesus was telling His parents. He was not disobedient but obedient to His Heavenly Father who must have first place. What a lesson for us to learn, that when we take care of our Heavenly Father's business first, then He takes care of ours. As we celebrate the New Year 2018 let us make it our resolution to do our Heavenly Father's business first and He will take care of our business. May the Lord bless you all real good this year with an increase in faith and blessings.

  • #And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their own city Nazareth. And the Child grew and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom and the grace of God was upon Him. Luke 2:39,40

    Joseph and Mary had fulfilled all things according to the law of the Lord, they then returned to Galilee, to their own city Nazareth, where Nathanael said unto Philip, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? The answer is a resounding yes, for the Lord Jesus went about doing good. This is the first of the silent years about the Lord Jesus, where scripture does not tell us what He did from two until twelve. We know that He worked with His father Joseph as a carpenter and we can be sure that He did many good things. As the Apostle John tells us all the books in the world could not contain all the things that our Lord Jesus did. So He grew and became strong in the spirit filled with wisdom, as the grace of God was upon Him. As we prepare to enter the New Year 2018, let us look to the Lord who can give us a spirit filled with wisdom and grace. So that we may know how to answer those for the hope that is within us. Christ Jesus our hope of glory. As our Lord told us to go into the highways and byways to compel them to enter into His Kingdom. Let us make this a great year to advance the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ so that everyone will have a chance to hear the good news that Christ Jesus died and was buried and rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

  • #And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser, she was of a great age and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity: and she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord and spake of Him to all that looked for redemption in Jerusalem. Luke 2:36-38

    Anna was a devout widow of 84 years old, who gave praise to God and fasted with prayers night and day. She in an instant gave thanks to the Lord for all that looked for redemption in Jerusalem, for she knew that salvation is in the Lord Jesus Christ. We too should model Anna the prophetess who taught us how to fast and pray to the Lord. She did not consider herself too old to preach to the Lord but made full use of her spiritual gifts by the power of the Holy Spirit. What a testimony Simeon and Anna made to Joseph and Mary about the Child the Lord Jesus, who was a sign for the fall and rising again of many in Israel. We are a sign of this generation today that Jesus the Messiah is coming back again as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We must be like the wise virgins who had oil in their lamps, so that at the midnight cry when the Lord came, they were ready to go in with the Lord. Unlike the foolish virgins who said give us some of your oil, but the wise said to go to the merchants and buy your own; sadly they were left. Be ye also ready for the Son of man comes at a time when ye think not.

  • #And behold there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost that he should not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple and when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him after the custom of the law. Then took he Him up in his arms and blessed God and said, Lord now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word. Luke 2:25-29

    Simeon was a just and upright man who was waiting for the consolation of Israel and the Holy Ghost showed him that he would not see death until he had seen the Lord's Christ. What a promise and it was fulfilled when Joseph and Mary brought the Child Jesus into the temple to do according to the custom of the law. God is concerned about meeting our most basic needs, as Simeon needed closure on a life well lived and God through the power of the Holy Spirit had revealed to him that his need to see Jesus before he died would come to pass. Oh how we need to see Jesus too, as I prepare to do my mother's eulogy, I think now that she is in the presence of Jesus, where there is the fullness of joy and pleasures at His right hand. She is at peace for her suffering is over, just as Simeon departed in peace once he saw Jesus. My mother is at peace in the presence of Jesus. What consolation that gives me. One day when we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be, for we will be like Him, fashioned like unto Jesus, for we will see Him as He is. Blessed are those who have this hope in them for they are purified. Simeon saw the salvation of Israel and the Savior of the world. I hope you have Him in your heart today. Just pray Lord Jesus come into my heart and save me today is my prayer in Jesus name Amen.

  • #And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought Him to Jerusalem, to present Him to the Lord; And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. Luke 2:22,24

    The law of Moses made a provision for poor people to offer sacrifices to the Lord, as a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons were allowed to bring the Babe, the Lord Jesus to Jehovah.Thank God that He provides for poor people as Joseph and Mary were poor and this sacrifice symbolizes Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

  • #And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. And when the eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the Child, His name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before He was conceived in the womb. Luke 2:20,21

    The shepherds returned glorifying and praising God for everything that was told them. For after the eight days were accomplished, the Child was circumcised according to the law of Moses. The name JESUS was given to the Child just as the angel Gabriel had told the Virgin Mary. Praise God for He is faithful to perform all that He has promised and we can be sure that He will finish what He has started in us unto the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem us from this world. So have faith in God and run the race, keep the faith, and finish the course.

  • #And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:17-19

    The Virgin Mary pondered in her heart all the things which the shepherds told her concerning the Child, the Lord Jesus Christ. This shows us how focused she was on the word of the Lord. We too need to focus on God's word so that we can be effective messengers of the Good News that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. As Paul said I am the chief of sinners, but God commended His love for us, in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us. The just for the unjust. This is pure love and grace alone that has saved us from our sins. That is the message of Christmas that God loved us enough to send us His only begotten Son to save us from our sins and He used shepherds to deliver the message to us. Will you be a shepherd as our Elder brother the Lord Jesus told Peter to feed my sheep? We show our love for the Lord Jesus when we feed the sheep.
