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.

  • #But love ye your enemies and do good and lend, hoping for nothing again and your reward shall be great and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not and ye shall not be judged: condemn not and ye shall not be condemned: forgive and ye shall be forgiven: Give and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:35-38

    • Jesus is giving the beatitudes for us to live by, to love your enemies and do good, to lend hoping for nothing in return. For great will be your reward in heaven and you will be children of the Highest. For every tree is known by the fruit that it bears. And why call me your Lord and do not the things which I say? For we are challenged to love and live by the Sermon on the mount so he that heareth and doeth not is like a man that without a foundation built a house upon the earth: against which the stream did beat vehemently and immediately it fell and the ruin of that house was great. This is a profound teaching and let us by the grace of God do as Jesus has said so that we can be called children of the Highest. Let us work with the Master Builder and work to enter the strait gate for narrow is the way that leads to eternal life and few there be that ever find it. For broad is the road that leads to destruction and many there be on that path. May the Lord bless you richly my beloved to do all these things.
  • #But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you. Bless them that curse you and pray for them which despitefully use you. Luke 6:24-28

    • Jesus uses four woes to warn us about: Woe unto you that are rich, speaking of those at ease in Zion, and woe to those who are full, speaking of those who have plenty of food, but not the word of God, for they will hunger for it when it is too late to receive it. Woe to you who laugh now, speaking of those engaging in injustice against the poor and needy, for God is a buckler for the poor. Woe to you when all men speak well of you, speaking of the false prophets who tickle the ears of those who want to be tickled but fail to warn of impending judgment, for God will punish them on the day of judgment. Then Jesus tells us who to love, as most would say love your friends while hating your enemies. While Jesus said to love your enemies, bless those who despitefully use you and pray for them. This is what we do as children of God, for blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God. When we forgive men their trespasses we are acting like God, for He forgives us our trespasses. I have been challenged to do all of these things in a business transaction that went wrong and by the grace of God, I have done what Jesus said to do. May the Lord bless you too as you live the beatitudes.
  • #And He lifted up His eyes on His disciples and said, Blessed, be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now; for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now; for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye when men shall hate you and when they shall separate you from their company and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. Luke 6:20-23

    This chapter gives the abridged version of the Sermon on the mount, where Jesus is giving the beatitudes. Blessed are ye poor, is a reference to the poor in spirit as well as the poor with material things, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger, is a reference to those who hunger for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now is a reference to those who suffer injustice, for in the kingdom of God Jesus will rule with a rod of iron and righteousness will be the foundation of His kingdom, we will laugh in the kingdom of God at all the injustice we suffered on earth. Blessed are ye when men shall hate you and separate you from their company, is a reference to the segregation of the races on earth, for in the Kingdom of God there will not be any segregation, for all kindreds and nations will praise God together. All the reproach that we suffer for being a Christian will be rewarded for in the Kingdom of heaven, just as the prophets will who suffer many things at the hands of the Pharisees and scribes. What a day that will be when we all get to heaven so rejoices now.

  • #And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days? And Jesus answering them said, have ye not read so much as this what David did, when himself was hungry and they were with him. How he went into the house of God and did take and eat the shewbread and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priest alone? Luke 6:2-4

    • Jesus tells the story to the Pharisees about David eating the shewbread and gave to them with him on the Sabbath day which was not lawful. He said this to show that Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath and just as God the Father did not condemn David for what he did, neither would Jesus condemn the disciples for what they did for they too were hungry. Never try to trap others for what they cannot do on the Sabbath days cause Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath.
  • #And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that He went through the corn fields and His disciples plucked the ears of corn and did eat, rubbing them in their hands. Luke 6:1

    Let us remember that the Sabbath was made for man, and Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath. So do not be as one of those who would say that they are breaking the Sabbath by plucking the ears of corn and eating them. If an ox would fall in a ditch on the Sabbath, then who among you would not get him out? So this is the same principle, for the disciples are hungry and it is lawful for them to pluck ears of corn and eat them on the Sabbath day. My brothers and sisters do not stumble over the truth of scripture for this are why we have the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth, for He takes the things of Christ and makes them real to us so that we can understand them. May the Lord bless you to have a super Sunday, even though the world will celebrate the Superbowl, we Christians know that every Sunday is a super Sunday. So have a great time with family and friends giving thanks for the many blessings that God has in store for us this day, for this is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it.

  • #And He spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth, not with the old. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles and be spilled and the bottles shall perish. But new wine must be put into new bottles and both are preserved. No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new for he saith, the old is better. Luke 5:36-39

    Jesus is telling this parable to let the Pharisees know that if any man is in Christ Jesus he is a new creature, for the old man is gone, and all things become new. This is the lesson about the old wine being better than the new wine: once you become an old Christian who walked with the Lord, you gain much more maturity than the new Christians. So the motto is to walk with the Lord until you become old and you will reap the rewards of well done good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of the Lord. Parables are meant for those of us in the kingdom to understand, and those without will not understand. So study this parable wisely and let the Holy Spirit open your understanding.

  • #And they said unto Him why do the disciples of John fast often and make prayers and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees, but thine eat and drink? And He said unto them, can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them and then they fast in those days. Luke 5:33-35

    Jesus is once again teaching the Pharisees a lesson about fasting, as they questioned why the disciples of John fast often and the Pharisees, but the disciples eat and drink? Jesus is the bridegroom and He is with the disciples, so they do not need to fast, but when He is taken away in the ascension, then they will fast. This is a profound doctrine for even the disciples of John did not know about this, so we are blessed that we can fast now that Jesus is at the right hand of the Father in heaven interceding for us. Do as Daniel did for he prayed three times a day, even with the windows open, so all could hear him praying. God is well pleased with this when we go into our closet in secret to pray, while our Heavenly Father will reward us openly.

  • #But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against His disciples saying why do you eat and drink with publicans and sinners? And Jesus answered them saying that the whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous to repentance but sinners. Luke 5:30-32

    Jesus often was questioned by the scribes and Pharisees who were trying to catch Him in a fault. Instead, Jesus turned the table by saying I did not come to call the righteous to repentance but sinners. Jesus is the Master Physician and He alone knows who is whole and He is the only one who is whole that did not need a physician. So He sought out all that were sinners since He came to seek and to save the lost.

  • #And after these things, He went forth and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom and He said unto him, Follow Me. Luke 5:27

    Jesus is concerned about taxes as He said render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar's and render unto God what is God's. Levi was at the tax office when Jesus found him and Jesus said unto him Follow Me, and immediately Levi left all to follow the Lord. This tells us the dedication of Levi to the Lord, for he did not make any excuses why he could not follow Jesus. This should be our attitude to following the Lord today. For many will miss heaven because they would not let go of this world to follow Jesus. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. God is not against us having possessions, but the main thing is that our possessions must not possess us. For the love of money is the root of all evil and many have become shipwreck because of it. Money can be used to advance the Kingdom of God, but if we put money ahead of God, then it becomes an idol which will destroy us. May we be found as faithful as Levi was to follow the Lord Jesus Christ. Go and be baptized in obedience to the gospel and follow Jesus and He will bless you real good.

  • #And immediately he rose up before them and took up whereon he lay and departed to his own house glorifying God. And they were all amazed and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying we have seen strange things today. Luke 5:25,26                                                               As the man with the palsy who was healed obeyed Jesus and walked to his own house praising God, a praise and worship service broke out as all the people were praising God. They were filled with fear, for they had seen strange things, for the Almighty had done wonderful things and He alone is worthy of our praise. How many of us would break out into praising God after such a healing? Let us give glory to God for He alone is worthy of all our praises.
