Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we thank God for the blessings of 2013 and look forward to serving Jesus in the New Year!  We prayerfully continue our Feast in the book of Proverbs  Chapter 2

 

Proverbs 2 Points out the values and promises awaiting the believer who seeks wisdom.  21 For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it, 22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous will be rooted out of itProverbs 2:21-22 (English Standard Version) ESV.  We should prefer the wisdom, understanding and fear of God over Gold and Silver (see Proverbs 2:4-5).  Jesus said; “I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.”  Therefor we must seek the wisdom of God to accomplish our mission for Jesus.  God’s Word tells us how to prepare for spiritual warfare (see Ephesians 6:10-18). “18 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.  19 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?  I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.Isaiah 43:18-19  ESV.  Let’s join Jesus in bringing forth this new thing.  Jesus has a purpose for you; seek God’s wisdom and Jesus’ righteousness (see Matthew 6:33). The Holy Spirit will give you what you need when you need it (see John 14:26).  Ask God for wisdom; it comes with purpose and promise (see James 3:17).

 

Is Jesus calling to you?   Do you want to answer before God stops calling?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

 

The Feast does belong to Jesus! It is intended to encourage Saints to pray and read every word in the bible!  Let me know if you have any questions or comments, by replying here on the blog or in an email.

 

The Feast belongs to Jesus you may share it anywhere with anyone!

 

God Bless You,

Brother Mike

Dec. 30, 2013– Proverbs 1

 

What’s The Beginning Of Knowledge?

If we turn at God’s reproof, He will pour out His Holy Spirit to you.

 

Proverbs an overview; The subject of this book may be thus stated by an enlargement on the opening verses. 1. The Proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel. 2. Which treat of the knowledge of wisdom, of piety towards God, of instruction and moral discipline, of the understanding wise and prudent counsels. 3. Which treat of the attainment of instruction in wisdom, which wisdom is to be shown in the conduct of life, and consists in righteousness with regard to our fellow-creatures. 4. Which treat of the giving to the simple sagacity to discover what is right, by supplying them with just principles, and correct views of virtue and vice; and to the young man knowledge, so that he need not err through ignorance; and discretion, so that by pondering well these precepts, he may not err through obstinacy. Take the proverbs of other nations, and we shall find great numbers founded upon selfishness, cunning, pride, injustice, national contempt, and animosities. The principles of the Proverbs of Solomon are piety, charity, justice, benevolence, and true prudence. Their universal purity proves that they are the word of God.” –  Matthew Henry Concise

 

 

Proverbs 1  The use of the Proverbs. (1-6) Exhortations to fear God and obey parents. (7-9) To avoid the enticings of sinners. (10-19) The address of Wisdom to sinners. (20-33)” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast in the book of Proverbs  Chapter 1

 

The proverbs of Solomon, begins by pointing out the wisdom of fearing God.  Avoid the temptations of sinners because sin takes away the life of the trespasser.   Wisdom cries out a warning against scoffers and the fools dislike of knowledge.  32 For the simple are killed by their turning away, and the complacency of fools destroys them; 33 but whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.Proverbs 1:32-33 (English Standard Version) ESV.  Proverbs shouts out the wisdom in aligning our life with God’s precious gift of salvation (see John 3:16-18).  In Jesus we will find comfort and rest.  33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.John 16:33 ESV.  Today is the day of salvation there is still work to be done.  Every attempt we make to share the love of God has the potential to bring joy to the angels in heaven (see Luke 15:10)!  The potential for bringing new believers to join in the harvest.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge! Hallelujah!

 

Do you hear Jesus calling to you?   Do you want to know how to answer him?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

Dec. 29, 2013– 2 Thessalonians  3

 

We Are Warned Against Idleness!

Saints, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, stay separated from any brother or sister who is walking in idleness.

 

2 Thessalonians 3  The apostle expresses confidence in the Thessalonians, and prays for them. (1-5) He charges them to withdraw from disorderly walkers, particularly from the lazy and busybodies. (6-15) And concludes with a prayer for them, and a greeting. (16-18)” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast in Chapter 3 of the book of 2nd Thessalonians.

 

In the third chapter Paul requests prayer and warns against lazy busy bodies.  He closes with this benediction; “16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.  17 I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. This is the sign of genuineness in every letter of mine; it is the way I write. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.2 Thessalonians 3:16-18 (English Standard Version) ESV.  Idle busy bodies bring shame on the Word of God as well as their selves (see Matthew 12:36-37).  Jesus himself gave us a work plan for the Saints (see Matthew 28:16-20) today.  1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.Matthew 11:28  ESV.  Remember your faith will be accompanied with action (see James 2:20).  I can assure you faith without works is dead.  Let the Word of God direct us in all we do and say thusly honoring Jesus until He comes for us.

 

 

Is Jesus calling to you?   Do you want to know God’s love?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

Dec. 28, 2013– 2 Thessalonians  1-2

 

The Judgment at Christ’s Coming!

This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God

 

2 Thessalonians Overview; “The second epistle to the Thessalonians was written soon after the first. The apostle was told that, from some expressions in his first letter, many expected the second coming of Christ was at hand, and that the day of judgment would arrive in their time. Some of these neglected their worldly duties. St. Paul wrote again to correct their error, which hindered the spread of the gospel. He had written agreeably to the words of the prophets of the Old Testament; and he tells them there were many counsels of the Most High yet to be fulfilled, before that day of the Lord should come, though, because it is sure, he had spoken of it as near. The subject led to a remarkable foretelling, of some of the future events which were to take place in the after-ages of the Christian church, and which show the prophetic spirit the apostle possessed. ” –  Matthew Henry Concise

 

2 Thessalonians 1  The apostle blesses God for the growing state of the love and patience of the Thessalonians. (1-4) And encourages them to persevere under all their sufferings for Christ, considering his coming at the great day of account. (5-12)” –  Matthew Henry Concise

 

2 Thessalonians 2  Cautions against the error that the time of Christ’s coming was just at hand. There would first be a general apostacy from the faith, and a revealing of the antichristian man of sin. (1-4) His destruction, and that of those who obey him. (5-12) The security of the Thessalonians from apostacy; an exhortation to stedfastness, and prayer for them. (13-17)” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast in the book of Colossians.  By reading 2 Thessalonians  Chapter 1 & Chapter 2

 

In the first two chapters Paul is reaffirming the second coming of Jesus and the Saints (you & I) will be found worthy because Jesus is righteous.  11 To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 (English Standard Version) ESV.  I think it would be of great advantage in our walk with Jesus to read chapters one and two as if Paul was writing to you and I today’s Saints.  16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.2 Thessalonians 2:16-17.   There is nothing in these two chapters that would be far from our walk with Jesus today.  We should be walking with and sharing Jesus wherever we are and whatever we are doing (see Matthew 28:16-20) today. “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Matthew 11:28  ESV.  Jesus loves every sinner that turns from their sin and asks him into their heart as Lord of their life.  Don’t be fooled by what the world proclaims to be legal or good (see Proverbs 3:5-6) there is no salvation in the laws of men.

 

 

Do you hear Jesus calling you?   Do you want to know perfect love?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

The Day of the Lord Is Today!

Remember to test everything; hold fast what is good.

 

Dec. 27, 2013– 1 Thessalonians 5

 

1 Thessalonians 5  The apostle exhorts to be always ready for the coming of Christ to judgment, which will be with suddenness and surprise. (1-11) He directs to several particular duties. (12-22) And concludes with prayer, greetings, and a blessing. (23-28)” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast in the book of Colossians.  By reading 1 Thessalonians 5.

 

In 1 Thessalonians 5 Paul tell them to be ready for the return of Jesus. Keep doing the good works that Jesus has called them to and to remain physically and morally clean.  The day of the Lord will come just when no one expects it.   23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it  1 Thessalonians 5:23-24  English Standard Version (ESV).  

Why do we continue to follow Jesus and call people to serve him over two thousand years since this letter was written?  Maybe because through Jesus we have received that peace that is beyond reason in the Holy Spirit.  I know this much Jesus is coming and God never lies (see Hebrews 6:18) God’s Word tells me so.  1 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

    and all that is within me,

    bless his holy name!

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

    and forget not all his benefits,Psalm 103:1-2  ESV.   Honor Jesus in everything you do and say (see Colossians 3:17).  Join me Saints in letting Jesus be the center of our life at school, work, play, and wherever else we may be.

 

 

Can you hear Jesus calling you?   Do you want God to set you free?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

Dec. 25, 2013– I Thessalonians 1-2

 I Thessalonians  an overview :

This epistle is generally considered to have been the first of those written by St. Paul. The occasion seems to have been the good report of the stedfastness of the church at Thessalonica in the faith of the gospel. It is full of affection and confidence, and more consolatory and practical, and less doctrinal, than some of the other epistles.” –  Matthew Henry Concise

 

I Thessalonians 1  The faith, love, and patience of the Thessalonians, are evident tokens of their election which was manifested in the power with which the gospel came to them. (1-5) Its powerful and exemplary effects upon their hearts and lives. (6-10)” –  Matthew Henry Concise

 

I Thessalonians 2  The apostle reminds the Thessalonians of his preaching and behaviour. (1-12) And of their receiving the gospel as the word of God. (13-16) His joy on their account. (17-20)” –  Matthew Henry Concise
