God’s Flock…

Seeing the World Through God’s Eyes…Judgment Upon Mankind…
 
God uses the goat to symbolize evil in numerous instances in the Bible. In Zechariah 10:3 (KJV) He says He will punish the goats. In Matthew 25:31-46 Christ’s Parable of the Sheep and the Goats tells of His return and of judging the nations. In verse 33 He says, “And He [Christ] will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” The sheep are then given eternal life, but the goats are cast into the Lake of Fire. It should be abundantly clear from this section of Scripture that we want the attributes of sheep and not those of goats! (Pay attention)
 
Isaiah 14:9-14
 
“Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet at thy coming: it started up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou become like unto us? They pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou “cut down to the ground” (Symbolic of the current events…), which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high…”
 
Zechariah 10:3
 
“Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock (sheep) the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in battle…”
 
Leviticus 17:7
 
And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be STATUTE for ever unto them throughout their generations…”
 
Micah 1:16
 
Make thee bald, and poll thee for thy delicate children; enlarge thy baldness as the “eagle”; for they are gone into captivity from thee…”
 
Amos 8:10
 
“And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an “only son” (only begotten son…), and the end thereof as a bitter day…”
 
This verse describes the mourning heart of Jesus for His Father to be exalted…baldness and shaving can be understood as an act of dedication to serving God…”regrowth” is always in the mind of God…just as “rebirth” (like a child’s first burst of hair…) is the key to understanding the Kingdom of God…as soft and delicate as a lamb…symbolism is key…

A Message To A Brother-North Star

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Refuge (Pages 109-112..)

Key Note: DOB: 1-8-82…

 

READ Psalm 25:1-14:

Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindness; for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach in his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy name’s sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The “secret” of the Lord is with them the fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. (Concordance Bible)

Key Reference: 2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth…”

 

DEVOTIONAL

In this piece of scripture, we are able to understand that if we remain true to God, he will keep us “safe from our enemies”—even our greatest enemy. It is our job to recognize the enemy in disguise, for we must remember the power of-fallen angels-to confuse the human world. It is important to listen to the testimonies of Christ and to adhere to what he says. He, in all ways, is constantly trying to communicate with us. Do not let yourself be caught in a trap. Keep your eyes open and your wits about you in order to fight off any adver- sity that poses a threat. God will guide the meek and the humble in His ways. Losing arrogance is key to gaining understanding from God. Do away with the ways of your younger days and become a mature Christian who is spiritually fit.

 

Asking God for forgiveness relieves anxiety and stress, so use this simple piece of knowledge to alleviate worry. Even though God’s ways are of old, at the coming of Christ all of these ways will seem new. The way that the world has existed up until now has been for an extenuated period of time. Know that God brings new light to a dark world. His Son brings truth that may be hard to hear, but salvation for all of those who believe. Believe in him and the world will change. It takes faith to transform a dark world. This is what God demands. The secret of God is what we all shall seek. The writings of God may be kept secret for some time, but one day it will be evident to all that God fulfills His prophecy and that He is the author of perfection.

A Word From The Kingdom of Heaven

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Our Peace (Pages 84-87)

READ Proverbs 8:6-9:

Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing forward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. (Illuminated Bible)

 

READ 1 John 1:1-5:

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (Illuminated Bible)

 

DEVOTIONAL

As we read the Word of God, we are able to gain understanding as to true wisdom versus the wisdom of the world. We are also able to obtain spiritual energy, which allows us to maintain the course. Without this Jesus energy, we have no way to keep up and fight the battles that we must face. We are to be honest and trustworthy, and to have no deceit within us. We are to follow the path of righteousness and not give in, but sometimes it is hard to find the energy to keep up. So, focus on studying the Word of God and overcoming the opposition. If you give up, you go back to square one, and it can feel like there is no way out. There is always a solution, but we must focus on discovering it in order to achieve that level of holiness. Being ordained into eternal life is what we desire, and that is our way to experience God.

 

God will bless you, if you seek Him out in every way. He will not let you down! Trust in Jesus to help you find a way out, and to not fall into temptation. He will be your guide and the light unto your path. Do not lose that light, but remain full of it in order to overcome the darkness. Life is not easy, and we know that the closer we get to finding God, the more challenging our lives become. It is not easy, and we must keep ourselves safe. (Be smart) Finding our safety within God is what He desires. He is a fortress and a shelter for those in need. Knowing that God has mercy is also our way of finding peace. God’s peace is what we desire. Everyone faces various problems in their lives, and we must deal with them in a way that pleases Him. However, that is not always easy. We must fight hard to win this battle between good and evil. We must give it all that we have— our hearts and souls.

 

Freedom By Truth

Truth Revealed By God

Chapter: Chosen One (Pages 93-95)

READ Jeremiah 30:6-9. “Ask now, and see, if a male can give birth. Why do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in childbirth? And why have all faces turned pale? Alas! for that day is great, there is none like it; and it is the time of Jacob’s dis- tress, but he will be saved from it. And it shall come about on that day,” declares the Lord of hosts, “that I will break his yoke from off their neck, and will tear off their bonds; and strangers shall no longer make them their slaves. But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up for them” (NASB).

 

READ John 1:17-18. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him (NASB).

 

DEVOTIONAL

We are made aware of the fact that God can do all things and that He is able to free us from all restraints carried out by our adversary (Mark of the Beast). Anything and everything is possible with God. We know that God appointed David to be the king, and that from David would come the Son of God. He would be the offspring of David, and the Lion of the tribe of Judah. In the Book of John, we gain understanding of how Jesus is in the bosom of the Father. For the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one entity in one body. These scriptures help us to understand where Jesus comes from and how we can know His existence with the Father.

He Who Became Sin On Our Behalf…

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Messenger Of The Covenant (Pages 51-55)

 

READ 2 Corinthians 6:16-20:

Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more. Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new. But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and gave unto the ministry of reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not reckoning unto them their trespasses, and having committed unto us the word of reconciliation. We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ, as though God were intreating by us: we beseech you on behalf of Christ, be ye reconciled to God. Him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him. (Pronouncing Parallel Bible)

 

READ 2nd Peter 3:1-10:

Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles. Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following after their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation. But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with

you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. (NLT)

DEVOTIONAL

During the last days, God will bring together all of those who have trusted in Him and have given Him their lives. All people must seek to be godly and to not be consumed by the wrath of God, for those who are able to stand in the time of testing will be those who will inherit the kingdom of God. Remember that we have all been reconciled to God by the sacrifice of Jesus who, knowing no sin, became sin on our behalf. He was brought into the world in order to learn our ways until the day when God said that it was time to stop. Jesus became fully human in order that we could better understand him and relate to him. This is how He saves those who have become so lost. It is our job to stay true to ourselves and to know that God is watching out for us. In the end, God will save those who are His children.

Lessons in the Wilderness…

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Lily Of The Valleys (Pages 25-28)

 

READ 1 Corinthians 15:56-58:

For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law that gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever use- less. (J. NLT)

 

READ Deuteronomy 30:6: “The Lord your God will change your heart and the hearts of all your descendants, so that you will love him with all your heart and soul and so you may live.” (J. NLT)

READ Deuteronomy 30:10: “The Lord your God will delight in you if you obey his voice and keep the commands and decrees written in this Book of Instruction, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and soul.” (J. NLT)

READ Luke 24:46-49:

And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day. It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’ You are witnesses of all these things. And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with the power from heaven. (J. NLT)

 

DEVOTIONAL

It is important to know that all work and effort for God results in rewards from God. An example of this would be the hidden kingdom where God resides. It is our job to take time to search for the knowledge that helps us to dis- cover the entrance into the kingdom of heaven. By searching and taking the path less travelled, there is a great reward. One must take a leap of faith in order to find God. Our heart is to be for God and not against God. Be not of the world, but be of God and you will discover His truth and wisdom. God has given us many books of instruction detailing how to live according to his purpose. He has made it clear throughout the Old and New Testaments of how we must live, pertaining to acts and character. Remain true by demonstrating your character to those in need and help others by exemplifying God’s nature.

 

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Lord God ALMIGHTY…(Pages 29-31)

READ Deuteronomy 1:6-8:

When we were at Mount Sinai, the Lord our God said to us, ‘You have stayed at this moun- tain long enough. It is time to break camp and move on. Go to the hill country of the Amorites and to all the neighboring regions- the Jordan Valley, the hill country, the western foothills, the Negev, and the coastal plain. Go to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, and all the way to the great Euphrates River. Look, I am giving all this land to you! Go in and occupy it, for it is the land the Lord swore to give your ances- tors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to all their descendants. (J. NLT)

 

READ Matthew 4:1-4:

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wil- derness to be tempted there by the devil. For forty days and forty nights he fasted and became very hungry. During that time the devil came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread.” But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. (J. NLT)

DEVOTIONAL

The truth about Jesus is that, even during the most testing and confusing of times, He overcame all adversity. He was able to read the Devil’s ways before the Devil even acted. He knew how the Devil would attack Him spiritually, and He used the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome the adversity. While Jesus was in the spiritual wilderness, He used his wisdom, granted by his father, to overcome the conniving ways of the Devil. The fact is that the Devil never stood a chance against the Son of God. Just as we read in Matthew we also read in the book of Revelation about Jesus overcoming this adversity. This is the truth, which remains within the Word of God. Jesus will once again overcome and command the Devil to doom. With one word Jesus will win this battle between God and Satan. The power of the mind is critical for us to remain on call and ready to face all adversity.

Doing Away With Iniquity

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Rewarder (Pages 121-125)

 

READ Psalms 119:128-134:

Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them. The entrance of thy words giveth light: it giveth understanding unto the simple. I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments. Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou uses to do unto those that love thy name. Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts. (Holy Bible-Concordance)

 

READ 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8:

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall con- sume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming. (Holy Bible-Concordance)

DEVOTIONAL

God is loving and merciful to those who seek Him. He teaches those who wish to be like him through His words. His secrets are all revealed in due time. The words of prophecy will be fulfilled, and the Sword of the Spirit will consume the wicked. The Sword Of The Spirit is that which will conquer all. It is the light, the way, and the truth. It is salvation for all of those who believe, and a gateway to freedom for those who have been enslaved. Seeking out to obtain a righteous heart is what God desires. Do not be afraid of what you may not understand. To think like God is to be not of the world. For, at this very moment in time, God is revealing the mystery of iniquity. See through the eyes of Jesus, and you will know what to do. Be a part of the living body of Christ and use your own gift to obtain a peaceful atmosphere. Doing away with the evil is the way of the righteous.

 

John 15:13-16

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go forth and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (Holy Bible-Concordance)

These very words demonstrate the love of God. These words define Jesus. He laid down his life for the world so that, through Him (Through His Body-He Could Give You Eternal Life), the world would be saved. In the end, after Jesus has conquered the entire world, both the saved and unsaved will know Him by this truth. Do not be a part of the world that persecuted and tortured the believers, for the wrath of God abides upon them. Just know that those who resisted the wickedness will inherit the kingdom of God. Those who follow the straight and narrow path are those with whom we shall reign in a new heaven and a new Earth. All of the old things are passing away, and God has already written of what will become of the world. This is what we have to look forward to—Eternal life with God.
