I Kings 15, Colossians 2, Ezekiel 45, Psalms 99-101

Dear readers,

For I would that ye know withersoever thou goest, that I will be in prayer for you.  My purpose in writing to you is so ye may be comforted in the assurance that our faithful God is always there strengthening thee along the way.  For it is written in Colossians 2:9-10 “For in Christ the fullness of God lives in a human body, and you are complete through your union with Christ.  He is the Lord over every ruler and authority in the universe.”

He hast shown me through His words in Col 2:14, that the charges against me have been blotted out and nailed to the cross thus forgiving me of all my trespasses.  I am strengthened all the more because of his never-ending love and FORGIVENESS!

It gives me great joy to speak of King Asa in I Kings 15.   For it was he who changed the course of the path from the wicked one of which his father, King Abijam had been upon.  King Asa banished immoral idols and dethroned his grandmother, Maachah from being queen, while burning her obscene Asherah pole she had built.  I rejoice in being aware of the fact that Asa did what was pleasing in God’s eyes.  I pray that I also will remove unclean and wrongful things that are set before me and would continue to have the Lord look upon me with loving favor.

Amidst my scripture reading in the book of Ezekiel, the 45th chapter, it was revealed to me  how many intricate measurement instructions were placed upon the portion division of the land, along with the guidelines placed upon the princes which ruled there.  In verse 4 it says, “This area will be a holy land, set aside for the priests who minister to the LORD in the sanctuary.”   I believe that my God highly desires my praise and my devoted holy worship in every place that I step foot into.  There is a nail that hitteth directly over my head when I read v.9 “Enough, you princes of Israel! Stop all your violence and oppression and do what is JUST AND RIGHT.” It is often that I findeth myself seeing verses such as this and pondering the thought of, “for this is but a sentence in a story telling others what needeth to be done in their lives”.  The message that shone through  upon me in this instance was, ‘simply because I am not a prince does NOT remove my obligation and command to also JUST STOPPETH THE WRONG AND DOETH THE RIGHT!!

Throughout the history of my time upon this earth I am giving faithful witness to the truth that God delights when I do what is right and pleasing in his sight and He filleth my cup with an overflowing joy that causes me to want to give Him praise and stay within those holy boundaries!

Psalms 99:3 “Let them praise your GREAT and AWESOME name.  Your name is holy!” Psalms 100:1-2, 4-5 “Shout with joy to the Lord, O earth!~ Worship the Lord with gladness!!  Come before Him, singing with joy. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name.  For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues FOREVER and his faithfulness continues to each generation.”

This peace I leave with you, that after having read this amongst yourselves that ye will likewise greet one another with the same joy and forgiveness that Christ has shown upon myself and each of you dear brethren!

May the grace of God be with you.  Amen.
