“LOOK ON THE FEILDS..”   Leave a comment

verily 

*****

“Behold, I say to you,
lift up your eyes and look on the fields,
for they are already white for harvest!”
John 4 : 35

The FIELD is the “World”…
The harvest is the end of the age –

How do we look on the fields?
–  What can we do?

First we should look where we are-
The area closest to where we are.
Choose our family, our friends, associates,
and our neighbors.

“Not one is made to suffer the wrath of God,
until the -TRUTH- has been brought home
to his mind and conscience,
and has been rejected—
Everyone is to have sufficient LIGHT
to make his decision intelligently”
{The Great Controversy…E G White}

Do we really believe that all must
have sufficient light to make a decision?

Look at the fields and their potential
harvest and see ourselves –
as one of the REAPERS.

May God Bless us – as we serve Him-
Happy Sabbath-

“POWER OF THE WORD..”   Leave a comment

Grass withers                                                                              ****

It is written,- “Man, shall not live by bread alone,
but out of every word that proceedsut of the mouth of God.”
Matthew 4 : 4

Notice that the three Statements- Jesus used to answer Satan’s temptations
came from the Book of  Deuteronomy .

2nd Temptation- ” Don’t Tempt God ”

3rd Temptation- “Worship God or Possessions.”

The Old Testament was the only Bible Jesus knew- and He knew it well.
Jesus not only believed the Scriptures but He had inspired the
Prophets to write them.

The idea that man shall not live by ‘bread alone’
– strengthened Jesus during a critical moment of his life.
The world’s destiny hung on His response to Satan’s temptations..
Had Jesus- with His hunger pangs turned those stones into bread,
Satan would have conquered. But Christ held appetite power
subject to His FAITH- in the POWER of GOD’S Word.

Every promise in God’s Word is ours.
‘By every WORD that proceedeth
out of the mouth of God are we to live.
When assailed by temptation, look not to circumstances
or to the weakness of self, but to THE POWER OF THE WORD.
All His strength is yours.” {Desire of Ages, p.123}

Jesus won the battle with Satan.We owe our lives to Him for His victory.
And he stands ready to help us in our struggles today.

REJOICE  in our Lord’s VICTORY.

Have a – BLESSED SABBATH…

 “God’s blessing – over EASTER-“

Whoever therefore shall confess Me before men,
him , will I confess also before My Father,
which is in Heaven.”
Matthew 10 : 2

The events on  Day of Pentecost- Thursday night and Friday ~

1. In Gethsemane- The sleeping disciples awakened by a light surrounding Jesus.
They saw an angel ministering to Jesus.
They heard words spoken like sweet music- speaking words of comfort and hope.

2. The Betrayal – Roman soldiers, the priests and Judas meet Jesus and the disciples-
A divine light shone from His face and the mop fell down as dead men to the ground.
When they arose-Judas the betrayer did not forget the part he had to play.
When they entered the garden , Judas  takes Jesus’ hand as a friend and kisses Him.
“Whoever I shall kiss- the same is He”-
{Matthew 26:48}

 Him and placed a cross upon Him
and led Him to Calvary.
When He could not carry it -Simon of Cyrene , was compelled to carry it.

7. Jesus Crucified – They brought Him to a place called Golgotha –
and there they Crucified Him  –

3. Taken before Annas and Caiaphas – It was after midnight when the mob led
Jesus to the palace of Annas- the ex- high priest.
And then before Caiaphas.  He was accused of ‘blasphemy and sedition’.
This would cause Him to be guilty and worthy of death.

4. Sentenced-  But only the Roman authority -could sentence him to death-
So he was taken before Pilate and Herod.
Finally Pilate placed the responsibility on the people-
To choose between a criminal- Barabbas and Jesus –
The mob cried out- “Crucify Him”.
The choice was made – Barabbas was set free and Jesus was led to Calvary.

5. There  was a time to be silent and a time to speak.
A heavenly light illuminated His face.
“Nevertheless I say unto you- you shall see the heavens open
and the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power,
and coming in the clouds of heaven”.

6.  Prophecy according to Isaiah 53-  The crowds like wild beasts dragged Jesus away;
They stripped Him;  Mocked and scourged Him:
They put a purple robe on Him and a crown of thorns on His head
and a reed in His hand. They spat on Him and bowed the knee before Him saying-
“Hail King of the Jews”
Then they put His own clothes o

Nailed to a cross- between two thieves.
They cast lots and divided His garments-
And above His head they put a sign up-“This is the King of the Jews.”
It was about 9 o’clock in the morning- Jesus had had no sleep all night..
~ Feeling His separation from his Father – He said,
*”My God, My God- Why have you forsaken Me”?


Jesus- was that Passover Lamb – Dying for mankind.
