Jesus gave all men His Word (will) and so all men have become responsible for what He says. We will be judged in this life and the next with what we do or don’t do with His Word.
John 1:4-5 In Jesus was life; and His life was the light of men. The light shined in darkness; and darkness comprehended it not.
God’s Word comes from His Spirit, it is eternal, unchanging and some have no desire for it. When a man declines to accept the Word of God, who does he think he is coming against? The Word of God can be accepted only one way. A man must choose to have it, it cannot be forced onto anyone. Men in darkness (ignorance) cannot comprehend the light because they don’t care anything about it.
2 Timothy 2:25 Humbly instruct those that oppose themselves; perhaps God will forgive them if they will acknowledge the truth.
Pride is the product of a fallen world. If a man has enough of it he will be his greatest enemy. Men are very resourceful and they can do a lot with their ingenuity, but they cannot deliver themselves from the bonds of this world. When a man opposes himself, it is because he refuses to accept the truth of God’s holy light. God resists the proud but He gives grace (power) to the humble. Light is revealed knowledge and every man is responsible for the light that he has.
Mathew 26:26 Jesus took the bread and said, this is My body broken for you. Then Judas betrayed Him.
Judas was a Jew and he knew the commandments thou shalt not steal and thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods. His lust for money was so strong he would betray the Son of God for thirty pieces of silver. Evidently Judas figured they couldn’t harm Jesus and so when the soldiers began to beat Him he knew just how wrong he was. Judas returned the money and went out to hang himself. Jesus said it would have been better if he had never been born.
1 Corinthians 11:27 Whosoever will eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, will be guilty
of the body and blood of the Lord.
Judas ate the last supper, the Passover meal unworthily, he did not honor the sacrifice Jesus was preparing Himself to be. If a man will recognize the light of the Passover meal, he will be forgiven and be guilty of nothing. Jesus became sin for us, He became guilty for all of our transgressions. However, Judas did not get cleansed from his guilt because he did not discern the Lord’s intent. Peter did the same thing! He told Jesus it was wrong for Him to be crucified and suffer and Jesus said to him, “get behind me satan for you savor not the things of God”. Peter realized the error of his way and he repented with bitter tears. Peter opposed himself until he acknowledged the truth, he got himself free of the devil. The worst thing a man can do to himself is agree with the plans and the plots of the devil. If we will assume the responsibility of our lives and invite Jesus to be Lord we will forever be free.
The best gift I can give to a brother is to forgive them.
If I sow forgiveness,
I will reap mercy.
I have power to get wealth
and It’s all in my willingness to give.
My giving is my seed
and my reaping is my prosperity.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
