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.

  • #And it came to pass, that on one of those days as He taught the people in the temple and preached the gospel, the chief priests and scribes came upon Him with the elders. And spake unto Him saying tell us by what authority doest thou these things? or who is He that gave thee this authority? And He answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing and answer me. The baptism of John, was it from heaven or of men? And they reasoned with themselves saying if we shall say from heaven, why then believe ye him not? But if we say of men; all the people will stone us: for they are persuaded that John was a prophet. And they answered that they could not tell whence it was. And Jesus said unto them Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. Luke 20:1-8

    • Jesus answered a question with a question knowing the scribes and Pharisees were trying to trick Him. So after the Pharisees and scribes reasoned with themselves over Jesus question they decided not to say whether the baptism of John was of heaven or of men. So Jesus knowing their hearts did not say what authority He was doing the things He was doing. We have to use wisdom to answer our critics just as Jesus did, for the servant is not greater than the Master. They tempted Him and they will tempt us. Pray ye that ye enter not into temptation for the Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. God does not tempt us with evil and He knows how much we can bear. So just trust God that when He allows us to be tempted it is a test for us to do good and come out smelling like a rose. May the Lord bless you my brothers and sisters to overcome your temptations. always take the way of escape for the Holy Spirit will show it to you at just the right time.
  • #Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto Him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that if these should hold their peace the stones would immediately cry out. Luke 19:38-40

    • Jesus is riding the donkey's colt meek and lowly and the disciples shout out Blessed be the King that comes in the name of the Lord. The Pharisees are angry and ask Jesus to rebuke them, but Jesus said if these would not praise Him the very stones would cry out. Let us praise Him today for He is worthy of all our praises. Do not be silent but let his house be called a house of prayer for all nations. Do not be like the merchants who were selling doves in the house of the Lord as thieves do. Let us hold up the Blood stained-banner ride on King Jesus be Lord of my life.
  • #He said, therefore a certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return. And he called his ten servants and delivered them ten pounds and said unto them Occupy till I come. But his citizens hated him and sent a message to him saying we will not have this man to reign over us. And it came to pass that when he had returned having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him to whom he had given the money to know how much they had gained after the trading. Then came the first saying, Lord thy pound hath gained ten pounds. And he said unto him Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little have thou authority over ten cities. And the second came saying Lord thy pound hath gained five pounds. And he said to him likewise be thou over five cities. And another came saying Lord, behold here is thy pound which I have kept laid up here in a napkin. For I feared thee because thou art an austere man thou takest up that thou layedst not down and reapest that thou have not sowed. And he said out of thine own mouth will I judge thee thou wicked servant thou knowest that I was an austere man taking up that laid not down and reaping that I did not sow. Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury? And he said unto them that stood by, take from him the pound and give it to him that hath ten pounds. (And they said unto him Lord he hath ten pounds.) For I say unto you, that unto every one which hath shall be given and from him that hath not even that he hath shall be taken away from him. But those enemies of mine which would not that I should reign over them bring hither and slay them before me. Luke 19:12-27

    • Jesus tells this parable of the ten pounds that was given to the servants so that they would know how to occupy until He would come back to settle accounts. To whom much is given much is required. For the servant who used the one pound to gain ten pounds, he was given the pound from the servant that kept his in a napkin. The principle is to use what you have for the glory of God on earth and He will reward you when He comes back to settle accounts. Jesus reprimanded the wicked servant for not using the one pound in the bank to earn interest. Usury is what was expected of the bankers of that day and that is what Jesus expected, so to whom what was given will be taken away because he did not use it wisely to the glory of God. Then to those enemies who did not want him to reign over them, they will be killed before the Lord. This is the judgment that will take place before the going into the kingdom of God.
  • #And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And behold there was a man named Zacchaeus which was the chief among the publicans and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was and could not for the press because he was little in stature. And he ran before and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him and said unto him, Zacchaeus make haste and come down for today I must abide at thy house. And he made haste and came down and received Him joyfully. And when they saw it, they all murmured saying, that He was gone to be a guest with a man that is a sinner. And Zacchaeus stood and said Lord, behold, Lord the half of my goods I give to the poor and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto him this day is salvation come to this house, for so much as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. Luke 19:1-10

    • Jesus marveled at Zacchaeus desire to see Him and climb the sycamore tree. So Jesus told him to come down for the Son on man must stay at your house. The Pharisees were all angry that Jesus would be a friend of such a sinner, for the publicans were the most hated sinners of their day. Yet Zacchaeus was a repentant sinner for he gave half of his goods to the poor and restored fourfold those he took money from by false accusation. Jesus then says the Son of man is come to seek and to save the lost. For Zacchaeus by his faith demonstrated that he was a true son of Abraham that all the Pharisees did. We can learn a lot from this example of giving for he did not tithe, but gave more than half of what he possessed. This tells us that the Lord is not requiring the tithe of us, but our heart as Zacchaeus gave all of his heart to Jesus and though he was rich, he was rich toward God which is what Jesus wants us to be. For the Lord loves a cheerful giver and he that sows bountifully shall reap bountifully. May the Lord bless you to give like Zacchaeus and watch how much the Lord will bless you.
  • #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.
