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.

  • #Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which sat at Jesus's feet and heard His word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving and came to Him and said, Lord, do thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she help me, And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: but one thing is needful and Mary hath chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:38-42

    • Jesus takes time to teach Martha the importance of sitting at the feet of Him, as Mary has chosen. Martha was worried about the house and serving which will be taken away, for we brought nothing into this world and we can take nothing out. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and all these things will be added. That is what Mary is doing for she knows every word that comes out of the mouth of Jesus must be heeded as food to the soul. Therefore, she has chosen the best part that cannot be taken away. May we learn from this lesson as Mary has learned, that housework and serving take second place to sitting at the feet of Jesus. We need to always have a quiet time with the Lord at His feet every day eating the word of God. For man does not live by bread alone, but by every word from the mouth of God. God bless you my brothers and sisters to do just that as I have done today seated at the feet of Jesus.
  • #But he willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, and who is my neighbor? And Jesus answering said, a certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment and wounded him and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise, a Levite, when he was at that place came and looked on him and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan as he journeyed, came where he was and when he saw him had compassion on him, and went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine and set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence and gave them to the host and said unto him, take care of him and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of this three thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among thieves? And he said he that showed mercy on him, then said Jesus unto him, Go and do thou likewise. Luke 10:29-37

    Jesus is telling the story of the Good Samaritan as he only showed mercy and compassion on the man who fell among thieves. The priest passed him by, perhaps worried about being late for service and the Levite passed him by, perhaps worried about what the law would say if he touched an unclean man. But the Samaritan did not consider anything but jumped into action bound up the man's wounds pouring wine on them. What love, then placing him on his animal. This is true love for it did not discriminate but meditated then moved into action. This is what we have to do to solve the racial problems in this country do not mind what other people say but to make change by loving no matter who is my neighbor. Do not get angry if the wrong color person moves into the neighborhood just show kindness. Also, show kindness to the immigrant by providing a job so he can take care of his family. This is what Jesus wants us to do when He said to do likewise. 

  • #And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And He said unto them: I beheld Satan as lightning, fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. Luke 10:17-20

    • Jesus has just given the seventy a praise report and told them He saw Satan as lightning fall from heaven. As Satan was Lucifer the anointing cherub, before his fall from heaven, but he was filled with pride, thus he was kicked out of heaven. So Jesus wants the seventy not to rejoice that they have power over the devils, snakes, and scorpions, but to rejoice that their names are written in heaven. There is no greater reason to rejoice than to know that we have a home in heaven when our time on earth is up. May we too rejoice as they will when we see Jesus in heaven and hear those words well done good and faithful servant enter thou into the joy of the Lord. So we must be careful not to allow pride to come into our lives and cause us to fall from grace. The fallen angels cannot be saved, they know that they are doomed to hellfire for eternity. We can lose our rewards but not our salvation. So run to win, not as one beating the air, but beat thy body into subjection, so that after you have preached to others you do not become a castaway. May the Lord bless us, my brothers and sisters, to be faithful in the service of the Lord interceding for one another. Let us be as faithful as the seventy that were sent out two by two to do what the Lord has commanded us to preach the gospel of the kingdom in all the world until He comes or calls us home.
  • #After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place whither He Himself would come. Therefore said He unto them, the harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth laborers into His harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Luke 10:1-3

    • Jesus has just sent out seventy additional workers into the vineyard and tells the disciples the harvest is great, but the workers are few. Pray ye that the Lord of the harvest, the Holy Spirit, would send out more workers into the vineyard. Then He tells them I send you as lambs among wolves. In the synoptic gospels, He said to be wise as serpents and as harmless as doves. This is the way we respond to the attack of the wolves, for there are many wolves in sheep clothing and we have to be on our guard. I have learned many things in my twenty-six years in the ministry to beware of false friends who say they love you, while they have a stick for your back. We have to be prayerful and careful when dealing with church members many of them are gossips and busybodies. The Holy Spirit will warn you of which ones to beware of for they are the wolves in the congregation sowing discord among the brethren. May the Lord help us to be faithful to walk the strait and narrow pathway that leads to life everlasting for broad is the road that leads to destruction and many there be that are on that road. Counseling is the most difficult task that ministers must do, for we find ourselves caught up in the problems of the people that we counsel. This is a great tragedy that has caused many to leave the ministry, but we have to endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, for our weapons are not carnal but mighty through God to the removing of strongholds. Therefore, put on the whole armor of Jesus Christ so that you can withstand all the attacks of the devil. The devil can disguise himself as an angel of light and deceive many. These are the wolves to watch out for in the vineyard as we war not against flesh and blood. May the Lord bless you to be faithful my brothers and sisters as we fight the good fight laying hold of eternal life in Jesus Christ. 
  • #And it came to pass that as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath not where to lay His head. Luke 9:57,58

    • Jesus is amazed at the desire of the man to follow Him since he said I will follow you where ever thou goest. This was a sincere desire since Jesus came to do the Father's will not buy houses or land so He told the young man that foxes have holes and birds have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay His head. The young man still wanted to follow Jesus. I wonder how many of us are that sincere in our desire to follow Jesus? we want to live in fine homes and drive the best cars, but following Jesus does not pay a big salary or allow you to live in big beautiful homes. There must be a sincere desire to follow Jesus at all cost not looking back after you put your hand to the plow. This is a remarkable story that teaches us the importance of commitment in our following Jesus and not to complain about what we do not have. Just be thankful for what you do have and follow Jesus at all cost. I have been following Jesus now for fifty years and I am not turning back. The world behind me and the cross before me I will go on until He comes or calls me home. Pray for me as I have been counseling a pastor's wife on the commitment of marriage and following Jesus. It has led to some temptations that I need to stay clear of. Pray that the counseling will remain holy and just. Thank you in advance all of my followers for I do not know where I would be without your prayers.
  • #The Son of man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and be slain and be raised the third day. And He said to them all if any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. Luke 9:22-24

    • Jesus is preparing the disciples for the cross and all the suffering that would follow, then He would be buried and the third day rises again. The disciples did not understand these things so Jesus tells them if any man will follow me, he must take up his cross, deny himself daily and follow me. The high cost of being a disciple, for if any man would save his life he would lose it. Yet whoever would lose his life following Jesus would save it. Just remember that you will not be popular for following Christ and this is the high price that we must pay to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. It will be worth it all when we see Jesus, for He will say well done good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of the Lord. So do not be ashamed of Jesus, for what profit is it to gain the whole world and lose your soul? Jesus said For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when He shall come in His glory and in His Father's and the holy angels. So be faithful and you will be rewarded.
  • #And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide and thence depart. And whosoever will not receive you when ye go out of that city, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony against them. Luke 9:3-5

    • Jesus has given the disciples the Modis Operandi for how to conduct themselves when they go about preaching the good news of the Kingdom of God. It is amazing that they were not to take anything for the journey, which required total faith in the Lord to provide for their needs. Also, they were not to provide staffs for their protection but were to totally depend on the Lord for their security. As well as they were not to prepare a script for what to say, as the Lord would give them the inspiration as they obeyed Him by faith. Neither were they to take any bread for man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. Nor were they to take money, for our God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus. Nor were they to take two coats since the Lord would give them all that they would require for the journey in one bag. Finally, they were not to worry about those who would not receive the message of the kingdom of God, for if they refused it, then as a testimony against them they were to shake the dust off their feet. Wow what a God we serve who provides for all of our needs and makes all our journeys prosperous according to His grace. And they departed and went through the towns preaching the gospel and healing everywhere. How we modern-day preachers need to take notice of how the disciples obeyed the Lord and were blessed in their ministry where ever the Lord sent them. May we pray for the Lord to increase our faith so that we can be as successful as the disciples were on their journeys through all the towns that they preached in by His grace alone. We need to see more healing ministries today as obedience to the preaching of the gospel. I have been challenged by this text to move by faith and do healing ministry going forward.
  • #Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases. Luke 9:1

    Jesus gave the disciples power and authority to cure diseases and cast out devils but He told them not to rejoice over that, the main thing that they were to rejoice over was that their name was written in the Lamb's book of life. That is what we can rejoice over to know that we will only have to die once and then we will be in the presence of the Lord forever. So as Jesus sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick, we too have a mission to occupy until He comes for us, or calls us home. May the Lord bless you, my brothers and sisters, to do this as we obey His very commands to be faithful in the vineyard.

  • #While He yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to Him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. But when Jesus heard it, He answered him saying, Fear not; believe only and she shall be made whole. Luke 8:49-50

    • Jesus when He came to the house He only allowed Peter, James, John, and the father and mother of the child in. All wept but Jesus said weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. The crowd laughed Him to scorn knowing she was dead. Jesus put them all out and took the child by the hand and called, saying Maid, arise. And her spirit came again and she arose straightway and He commanded to give her meat. And her parents were astonished but He charged them that they should tell no man what was done. What a blessing as Jesus gave life to the little girl again, just as He said she was sleeping and the Master simply said Maid arise. Jesus had to call her that way, or everyone in the grave would have risen. What a day that shall be at the first resurrection when Jesus will step out in the clouds and call Come up hither and all those in the grave will arise just like the child did. Those of us who are alive and remain will be changed in a moment and caught up in the clouds to forever be with the Lord. This is the Blessed Hope that we have in Jesus. And we are purified by this and we should be ready for that great getting up morning. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved then you will only have to die once. If you reject Him, then you will be raised in the second resurrection, only to be told I never knew you, depart from me into everlasting darkness in the Lake of fire. This is the second death. There will be weeping and snashing of teeth forever. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of the students that were killed in the mass shooting in Florida. The hour is coming when all in the grave will hear His voice, those that have done good to the resurrection of eternal life and those that have done evil to the resurrection of damnation.
  • #And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years which had spent all living upon physicians neither could be healed of any, Came behind Him and touched the border of His garment and immediately her issue of blood stanched. Luke 8:43,44

    • Jesus when He was touched by the woman with an issue of blood, immediately the woman was healed and Jesus replied who touched me? the disciples said you are in a crowd of people, but Jesus said virtue has gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hiding, she came trembling falling down before Jesus. Then Jesus said unto her, Daughter, be of good cheer, for thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. We need that type of faith that moves the hand of God, to just believe by touching the hem of His garment and being made whole. May God increase our faith to believe Him in every situation in life. For doctors do not always know what is wrong with us, so we need to trust Jesus as the Master Physician as this woman did and not try to hide as this woman did but tell it to everyone. As the song goes while thou are touching others, please do not pass me by my Savior. Yes, Jesus is passing by so let us reach out in faith and touch the hem of His garment and watch Him heal us.
