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.

  • #Then took unto Him the twelve and said unto them, behold we go up to Jerusalem and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. For He shall be delivered unto the Gentiles and shall be mocked and spitefully entreated, and spat on: and they shall scourge Him and put Him to death and the third day He shall rise again. Luke 18:31-33

    • Jesus tells the disciples that all things that the prophets have said concerning Him will be fulfilled. but the disciples did not understand those sayings until He had risen from the dead. We are about to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and we too must beware of the world trying to get us caught up in the easter bunny and egg hunting, which has nothing to do with the passion of our Lord. We too must bear our cross, endure suffering as a Christian, and follow Jesus so that we too will inherit eternal life with the Father. I pray that you will make a plan to tell someone what it means to be a Christian, which is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We will bear the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, self-control, patience meekness, which is not weakness but strength under control of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord bless you to do just that my brothers and sisters in the Lord.
  • #And a certain ruler asked Him saying Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is God. Thou knowest the commandments, do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor thy father and thy mother. And he said, all these have I kept from my youth up. Now when Jesus heard these things, He said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast and distribute unto the poor and thou shall have treasure in heaven and come, follow me. And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich. And when Jesus saw that he was sorrowful, He said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Luke 18:18-25

    • Jesus admired the rich young ruler and challenged him that if he would enter into the eternal life he must sell what he has give to the poor and follow him. The rich young ruler walked away sorrowful because he was very rich. Then Jesus said how hard will those who have riches enter into the kingdom of God, for it is easier for a camel to go through the needle's eye than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. This meant the rich man would have to unload his riches to enter into eternal life. It is not a sin to be rich, but if you love those riches it is a sin. Possess the riches without them possessing you is what is needed. Too many falls in love with the riches and not the Savior who gives us the power to earn wealth. The sin of covetousness is what this young rich ruler suffered from and pray Lord let me not be guilty of this sin in my life. Give to the poor, take up your cross, deny yourself and follow Jesus. Then you will enter into life eternal.
  • #And they brought unto Him also infants, that He would touch them, but when the disciples saw it they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto Him and said suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. Luke 18;15-17

    • Jesus rebukes the disciples for not allowing the people to bring their infants to Him, for He said to suffer the little children to come unto me for of such is the kingdom of God. We must emulate the faith of little children, for it is their unstoppable faith in God that allows them to enter the kingdom of God. For without faith it is impossible to please God. Therefore, we must allow children even as infants to come to Jesus just as they are in their innocence. For we can learn a lot from children how we must approach a holy God. Our hearts must be cleaned at an early age. 
  • #And He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not to faint. Luke 18:1

    • Jesus spoke this parable as a widow needed justice and did not stop praying until she received the justice that she was seeking. This is a lesson for us to not faint in praying but should continue to pray to God until we get an answer from heaven. God answers prayer yes, no and not now. So just because we do not get what we ask when we ask it does not mean no, it could mean to wait for the perfect timing of our Heavenly Father.
  • #And when He was demanded of the Pharisees when the kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said the kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or there! for behold, the kingdom of God is within you. And he said unto the disciples the days will come when ye shall desire to see of the days of the Son of man and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you see here: or, see there go not after them or follow them. For as the lightning that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in His day. But first, must He suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. Luke 17:20-25 

    • Jesus explains when the kingdom of God will come to the Pharisees and then to the disciples for the kingdom of God will come without observation. For as the lightning shines out of one part of heaven to the next so will the kingdom of God come. But first, the Son of man must be rejected of this generation and suffer many things. The cross will come first before the kingdom of God, for Jesus is the Lamb of God who will take away the sins of the world on the cross. That is why He said I must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. Then as it were in the days of Noah, so shall it be of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage until the day that Noah entered the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they built and they planted. But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed? So be ye also ready for in the day that ye think not the Son of man will come on the clouds with great power and great glory.
  • #And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said if ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, be thou planted in the sea and it should obey you. Luke 17:5,6

    • Jesus has just taught the disciples to the importance of forgiving their brother. If your brother trespass against thee, rebuke him and if he repents, then forgive him. The disciples then replied shall I forgive my brother seven times? Jesus then tells them seventy times seven. It takes a lot of faith to forgive like that and that is why the disciples needed to increase their faith. As the scripture teaches, faith comes by hearing the Word of God. So the more of the Word of God that we hear, we will increase our faith. Therefore if we just had the faith of a mustard seed, we could say to the sycamine tree be planted in the sea and it would obey. May we forgive as Jesus has taught us how to forgive four hundred and ninety times, for true love always forgives. How many marriages could be saved if the spouses would just exercise true love and forgive the other spouse? For love keeps no record of wrongs but always forgives and never fails. Love believes all things, bears all things so brothers and sisters let us love one another as Jesus loves us. For we love Him because He first loved us by going to the Cross to bear our sin debt. Jesus said Father forgive them for they know not what they do. That is true when we sin, we are not knowing how serious that sin is, for Jesus died so that we could be forgiven. Whom the Lord loves He chastens so if you sin, expect a spanking from the Lord. For the Lord is not spanking the devil's children. Thank God that He chastens us so that we will not be condemned with the world. So despise not the chastening of the Lord.


  • #Then said He unto the disciples, it is impossible but that offenses will come but woe unto him, through whom they come! It was better for him that a millstone was hanged about his neck and he cast into the sea than that he should offend one of these little ones. Luke 17:1,2

    • Jesus is warning the disciples about offending little children, for it was better than a millstone was placed on his neck and he cast into the ocean than to offend a child.  This is a very stern judgment to think about for our God loves little children, for such is the kingdom of God. We must do all we can to protect them from the filth on the Internet. The filters sometimes do not work and they are exposed to pornography. Shame on those who promote this filth and expose little children to it. Hellfire cannot be hot enough for those who will be judged for doing this that is why Jesus told the illustration about the millstone. Bless the little children of the world do not harm them. 
  • #Whosoever putteth away his wife and marries another committeth adultery. And whosoever marries her that is put away from her husband commits adultery. Luke 16:18

    • Yes, marriage is difficult and today it is no different than it was in Jesus day when He told this story. In the Garden of Eden is where it all started when the woman sinned the curse was her desire would be to her husband, but he would rule over her. A woman does not want to be ruled over and this is much of the conflict in marriage. She wants a lot of passion in the marriage and the husband cannot fulfill her desire so she goes outside of the marriage. Men commit adultery as much as women, but women hide it better than men do. How do we overcome this strong desire that comes in marriage to be with another mate? Well, we have to be well grounded in the Word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to control us. We must not grieve the Holy Spirit whereby we are sealed unto the day of redemption. Separation is better than divorce, for it gives the husband and wife space to work out their problems in the marriage. Children can be a blessing to the marriage for it takes time away from the concerns about the marriage to what is important to raising the children. Plus children want to see their parents get along in the marriage which is a good thing and this can help to strengthen the bond in the marriage. Jesus told this story before He told the story about the rich man who died and went to hell and the poor man Lazarus who died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's Bosom which is heaven. This is the place we will go if we accept Jesus as our Personal Lord and Savior who will forgive us of all our sins. We have to repent of our sins before we die, as the rich man did not repent and he died, thus he was doomed to hellfire and damnation. He wanted father Abraham to go to his brothers to warn them lest they too would go to such a place. Marriage is the struggle that causes many to go to hell, for they cannot get over the temptations and stray into adultery. That is why Jesus told this story to warn us less we too would make the same mistake that so many others have made in their marriage. Hosea was married to Gomer who was a harlot and God told him to marry her so that he would know what the nation Israel was doing to Jehovah God by playing the harlot too. Gomer was put out of the house for her many adulteries and after all of her lovers forsook her Hosea took her back in as a wife and she became a devoted wife. So forgiveness is the key to marriage to overcoming divorce as God hates divorce and loves it when the couple can forgive one another to keep the marriage strong. This is the struggle that we have to keep our marriage bed holy. For God will judge all adulterers and if they do not repent they too shall end up in hellfire like the rich man in this story. If you are in this problem in your marriage today just pray to God to give you the strength to overcome the temptations in your marriage and be faithful to your spouse as Gomer learned how to do. It is possible to forgive after adultery has taken place in the marriage, but there must be true repentance. As Jesus told the woman caught in adultery to go and sin no more. She obeyed and will be saved from hellfire. The road to hell is paved with good intentions as people do not intend to go there they just don't want to turn to the strait and narrow path to go to life after death in heaven. There will be many who will say Lord Lord we have done many things in thy name and He will say depart from me ye that work lawlessness, I never knew you. What a tragedy for the Lord to say depart from me I never knew you. I pray that you will not hear those words and that you will get off the broad road that leads to destruction. Jesus is standing at the door and knocking for you to open the door of your heart to let Him in. Do it today and you can have eternal life with the Father in heaven. 
  • #And I say unto you, make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful in also much and he that is unjust in the least is unjust in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? Luke 16:9-11

    Jesus tells this story of the steward who was faithful in the unrighteous mammon as a sign that the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. We must learn how to manage the unrighteous wealth of this world for our Heavenly Father to trust us with the true riches of the heavenly kingdom. For the principle is he that is faithful in little will be faithful in much. So despise not the day of small things for our Heavenly Father is just preparing us for something much greater in the kingdom of God. Learn from the wise steward who used the unrighteous mammon of his master wisely. For our Heavenly Father is giving us the opportunity to be faithful to the true riches of the kingdom, so use them wisely.

  • #And He said a certain man had two sons and the younger of them said father, father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me, and he divided unto him his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together and took his journey into a far country and there wasted his substance on riotus living. And when he spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into the fields to feed swine. And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat and no man gave unto him. And when He came to himself, he said how many hired servants of my father's have bread enough to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father and will say unto him father I have sinned against heaven and before thee. And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion and ran and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him Father I have sinned against heaven and in thy sight and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, bring forth the best robe and put it on him and put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet; And bring hither the fatted calf and kill it and let us eat and be merry: For this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. And they began to be merry. Luke 15:11-24

    • Jesus told this parable because this is a picture of our Heavenly Father who has given us an inheritance and we have wasted it with riotus living. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. When the Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin after we have landed on the pig pen of life, we confess our sin before God, who is Holy and just and forgives us of all. There is joy in heaven as the Father puts a robe of righteousness on us and a ring on our finger. But there is the elder brother who said I have been hearing lo all these years and you have never slain the fatted calf for me? Anyone who is self-righteous and cannot see his sin is like unto the elder brother who was angry at the feast for his younger prodigal brother. We have to pray for God to forgive us of the sin of self-righteousness, for we too are standing in the need of prayer. May God have mercy on all of us for we have been prodigal sons and daughters who need mercy and forgiveness. Let us not be bitter when the Heavenly Father restores another prodigal son or daughter. Instead, let us see ourselves in that situation and give thanks unto God and rejoice with all the angels of God in heaven at the sinner that was lost and is found, that was dead and is alive. This is the attitude that we must have as children of the highest God.
