JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT THE UNFAIRNESS OF GRACE CON’TD

……much more they which receive abundance of grace (unmerited favor) and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Romans 5:17 King James Version

Thank Poppa for His Grace.  When we deserved hell, He gave us GRACE(Jesus).  When we deserved punishment, He punished Jesus instead providing for us GRACE.  It seems unfair and it is and I thank God for it.  We talked about how some believers and people who are not saved think that God is unfair.  However we did not talk about one other entity who believes that it is unfair: the devil.  I rarely talk about him because he is a defeated foe however I will today for our benefit.  Why? Because you need to know that he is counting on you not knowing, understanding and believing in the unfairness of GRACE. he wants you to think condemning thoughts like, “You think God is going to bless you after how you treated your spouse, co-worker or that person who flipped you off on the road?” If he ever comes to you with “his mess”  you need to give a resounding YES!!!  God’s grace is not based on what you did, it’s based on what Jesus did.  Yes you don’t deserve it but Jesus does.  So you don’t get what you deserve, you get what Jesus deserves and the Father has decided that Jesus deserves ALL THINGS.  Since you are in Christ and a member of the Body of Christ you get to get in on ALL THINGS that belong to Jesus.

“All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you. John 16:15 New American Standard Bible

The Father has made you joint heir with Jesus.  That means whatever Jesus HAS IS ALSO YOURS!!!!!  All of His Life, all of His Health, all of His Wealth, all of His Shalom, all of His Wisdom, all of His Righteousness, all of His Holiness IS YOURS right now!!!  I want you to take some time to absorb that into your spirit and soul and body.  Jesus said in that scripture above that all things the Father has are His.  So you can say, “All things that Jesus has are MINE!!!”

When you believe that and receive it you ail live a life of shalom, grace and rest!

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT THE UNFAIRNESS OF GRACE

……much more they which receive abundance of grace (unmerited favor) and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)  Romans 5:17 King James Version

You know, there are a lot of people in the world including some believers who believe that God is not fair!!!  Well I have some good news for them!!! THEY ARE RIGHT,….in a sense.  If we look up the word fair it originally meant to be beautiful.  God is beautiful and has made beautiful things.  But when these people talk about fair what they mean is you gave that other person five pieces of candy and you only gave me two or you gave them a three hundred thousand dollar house and you only gave me a hundred thousand dollar house.  So in that sense God is not fair.  As a believer God does not treat you fairly He treats you favorably.  And you should get down on your knees and thank Him now because if God treated everyone fairly, we would all be dead today.  Why?  Because no matter how good you think you are, the things that you have done or thought of doing which is all the same to Him are worthy of death.  But The Father because of Jesus or Grace, does not punish you according to your sins or misdeeds. Why?  Because He already punished His Son Jesus for every single sin every person would ever do past, present or future.  Let’s take a look at the unfairness of Grace here in Genesis 20.

Abraham moved south to the Negev and lived for a while between Kadesh and Shur, and then he moved on to Gerar. While living there as a foreigner, 2Abraham introduced his wife, Sarah, by saying, “She is my sister.” So King Abimelech of Gerar sent for Sarah and had her brought to him at his palace. 3But that night God came to Abimelech in a dream and told him, “You are a dead man, for that woman you have taken is already married!” 4But Abimelech had not slept with her yet, so he said, “Lord, will you destroy an innocent nation? 5Didn’t Abraham tell me, ‘She is my sister’? And she herself said, ‘Yes, he is my brother.’ I acted in complete innocence! My hands are clean.” 6In the dream God responded, “Yes, I know you are innocent. That’s why I kept you from sinning against me, and why I did not let you touch her. 7Now return the woman to her husband, and he will pray for you, for he is a prophet. Then you will live. But if you don’t return her to him, you can be sure that you and all your people will die.”  Genesis 20:1-7 New Living Translation

Now I want you to examine something.  As a king Abimelech had the right to take any unmarried woman he desired and Abraham told him that Sarah was his sister.  This was a repeated lie that Abraham committed twenty-five years earlier.  So Abraham after all that God had done was still dealing with the same fear which caused him to continue this lie.  But did God go to Abraham and tell him he was a dead man for lying and being in fear?  NO!! Instead he went to Abimelech and told him he was a dead man for taking Abraham’s wife.  THAT’S NOT FAIR!!!  So what is going on here?  You know what is going on or Who is going on?  Grace is going on! Jesus is going on!!!  Now keep your hat on because there is even more unfairness to come, keep reading.

Abimelech got up early the next morning and quickly called all his servants together. When he told them what had happened, his men were terrified. 9Then Abimelech called for Abraham. “What have you done to us?” he demanded. “What crime have I committed that deserves treatment like this, making me and my kingdom guilty of this great sin? No one should ever do what you have done! 10Whatever possessed you to do such a thing?” 11Abraham replied, “I thought, ‘This is a godless place. They will want my wife and will kill me to get her.’ 12And she really is my sister, for we both have the same father, but different mothers. And I married her. 13When God called me to leave my father’s home and to travel from place to place, I told her, ‘Do me a favor. Wherever we go, tell the people that I am your brother.’”  Genesis 20:8-13 New Living Translation

So now we have Abraham admitting it was a lie and that it was to save his own life and that it was based on fear.  Now Abimelech should have been really angry and want to punish him.  But look at what GRACE makes him do instead.

Then Abimelech took some of his sheep and goats, cattle, and male and female servants, and he presented them to Abraham. He also returned his wife, Sarah, to him. 15Then Abimelech said, “Look over my land and choose any place where you would like to live.” 16And he said to Sarah, “Look, I am giving your ‘brother’ 1,000 pieces of silver in the presence of all these witnesses. This is to compensate you for any wrong I may have done to you. This will settle any claim against me, and your reputation is cleared.” Genesis 20:14-16 New Living Translation

So now Abraham and Sarah get enriched and get given gifts after their ruse.  THAT’S NOT FAIR!!!!! As a matter of truth if you keep reading you will learn that Abraham had to pray for the king and his people because God made the women in Abimelech’s kingdom infertile because of him taking Sarah. That just does not seem fair and it is not.  Abraham was trying to protect himself by lying and it would seem that he should have been punished by God and the king.  Instead ‘all things work together for good for Abraham because he loves God and is the called according to His purpose.”  He gets sheep, goats, cattle and male and female servants and 1,000 pieces of silver for his ruse.  God used the situation to bless and increase Abraham. The truth is again that The Father does not treat you fairly He treats you favorably because of Jesus! So you should expect unfair treatment from the Father.  As for me and my house we will take FAVOR over FAIRNESS from the Lord everyday.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH-ABOUT SALVATION

For by the grace have you been saved in time past completely, through faith, with the result that your salvation persists through present time; and this [salvation] is not from you as a source ‘of God it is the gift, not from a source of works, in order that no one might boast.  Ephesians 2:8 Kenneth Wuest Translation

Salvation is such a wonderful thing and Person.  Yes Person! Did you know and realize that the name Jesus, or Joshua or Iesous(the Hebrew transliteration)  means Yahweh saves!  Look at what was said about Jesus when he was first born.

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21 King James Version

In other words, He will do what His Name means or stands for.

It is so great to see Jesus all throughout the entire Bible, the Old Testament and the New Testament.  Many believers don’t even realize how many times the scriptures are talking about JESUS! But He is everywhere! Lets look at just a few.

I am bringing my righteousness near, it is not far away; and my salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, my splendor to Israel .  Isaiah 46:13 New International Version

Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. 2 Timothy 2:10 New International Version

Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow. I Peter 1:11 New International Version

All these scriptures are talking about Jesus!  Everywhere you see righteousness, salvation, or the grace that was to come the scripture is talking about JESUS!!  Zion is us, the church. All He did and all God has done through Him is salvation.  The word salvation comes from the greek word,  soteria.  It means welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation, safety.  It comes from the greek word sozo which means I save, I heal, I preserve, I rescue.  It  means properly, to deliver out of danger and into safety; used principally of God rescuing believers from the penalty and power of sin – and into His provisions (safety). Isn’t that great?

Now with that knowledge lets go back to our opening scripture and dig out all the spiritual secrets and nutrients we can get out of it.

For by the grace have you been saved in time past completely, through faith, with the result that your salvation persists through present time; and this [salvation] is not from you as a source ‘of God it is the gift, not from a source of works, in order that no one might boast. Ephesians 2:8 Kenneth Wuest Translation

So realize and understand that by grace you have been saved in time past completely.  Lets stop right there and look at what is said in the first verse. When were you saved in time past? (We will get to completely in a moment). You were saved in times past before the foundation of the world.  You were saved completely, spirit, soul and body before the foundation of the world.

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Ephesians 1:4 King James Bible

God didn’t wait until your mother and father had you on Earth, He choose you before He even created the world.  You are special! Nothing can dominate you or take you out of the Fathers hand. Why? Because you existed and were saved before sin, before sickness, before disease, before debt and before any of these things existed.  Nothing can separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.  So now what has happened as a result of you being saved in time past time completely.  The Word of God says that this has the present result that your salvation(your welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation, safety) persist through present time.  Present time here means today, tomorrow and throughout all eternity.  Do you realize you have been saved a loooooonnnnngggg time?  And your salvation persist.  The word persist there means to continue firmly and obstinately in spite of difficulty or opposition. Your welfare persist in spite of opposition. Your prosperity persist in spite of opposition. Your deliverance persist in spite of opposition. Your salvation persist throughout eternity.  Why?  Because God said so.  Because the Word of God says so.   This truth is so true that God had the Holy Spirit have Paul write it twice in the same chapter only 3 verses from each other.  When God says something twice ‘to you’, you may want to pay attention.

By grace have you been saved completely in past time, with the present result that you are in a state of salvation which persists through present time. Ephesians 2:5 Kenneth Wuest Translation

So if we define the words ‘saved’ and ‘salvation’ the scripture would read like this and we will make it personal this time.

By grace I have been saved, healed, preserved and rescued completely in past time, with the present result that I am in a state of salvation, welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation and safety which persists through present time. Ephesians 2:5 Kenneth Wuest Translation

Know and understand and let no one talk you out of your present state. You are in a ‘state of salvation’ which persist through present time.  When you believe in that salvation which is Jesus, the benefits and ingredients of that salvation begin to manifest.  And we already learned about the fullness of Christ and being conscious of that fullness.  Be salvation conscious and know what state you are in.   Let’s say you have been saved for 10 years.  Do you know the state you have been in for those 10 years?  Did you know that you have been in a state of welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation, safety? It may not be manifest because you have not been conscious of it and claimed your rights that are included with being in that state.  Lets look at it another way.

Lets say you lived in the state of Michigan for twenty five years, then because of a new job you move to the great state of Texas.  After a year you prepare to file your taxes and you tell your accountant, “Hey I need to file my Federal, State and City taxes.  Your accountant then tells you, “There are no state taxes in the state of Texas.  That is a benefit of living in the state of Texas.”  You are pleasantly surprised to find that out.  No state taxes.  Without your accountant sharing that knowledge you would have tried to file and pay state taxes, thereby denying yourself one of the benefits of living in the state of Texas.  This adds new meaning to what you don’t know can hurt you.    You are in the state of salvation the provides you the benefits of welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation and safety by God the Father through Christ Jesus.  Be sure to take advantage of the benefits of your “state”.

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT “BEING” A NEW CREATION

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!  2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version

If you are a believer, you ARE a new creation.  But are you conscious of it?  Are you conscious of what Jesus has provided you in the New Creation?  Well let’s take a look at what Jesus has provided as a result of what He did on the cross.  You must understand that being born again makes you a son of God and a joint heir with Jesus Christ.  There are things that Jesus gets as a result of God BEING His Father.  Let’s take a look at what those things are.

All things that the Father hath are mine… John 16:15 KJV

Well that about sums it up.  As a result of Jesus being the Son Of God EVERYTHING that the Father has belongs to Jesus.  Well you are also a son of God and a joint heir WITH Jesus so you have a double right to all the Father has.  So I want you to take some inventory of some of the things that The Father has.

God the Father has:

  • Perfect health with no possibility of ever being sick not one day
  • Riches and wealth in abundance including all spiritual blessing and material things
  • Perfect peace and completeness and shalom
  • Authority and rulership over ALL
  • Authority over time and eternal youth
  • Knowledge of the Truth Who is Jesus

So these are just a few things. Let’s start here. Do you think if you have these things your life would change and improve?  Well I have Good News!! ALL THESE THINGS ARE YOURS RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW!!!

But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, He went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation.  Hebrews 9:11 NIV

Notice that scripture said Jesus is High Priest of the GOOD THINGS that are NOW ALREADY HERE.  These things are yours freely by GRACE through FAITH or your believing that they are because The Word said so.  You have to believe that they are TRUTH and POSSIBLE then take OWNERSHIP of them as your own.  Here is something I discovered to be true.  Some believers are sick because they have faith that they can be sick.  Think about that.  Now think about the scripture we started off with.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version

Are you in Christ? If you are a believer you are. Does Christ have any sickness or disease in Him?  NO!!! A thousand times no!  So if you are in Him them sickness has to get into Him to get to you right?  The old is GONE!!  The old is sickness, disease, death, poverty and lack etc..  You may see these things, but they only exist as a lie and not The Truth Who is Jesus.  When you see things that are contrary to who you are and what The Word of God Who is Jesus says you have, THAT is the time to act like yo’ Daddy, Father God.  When God looked out and saw darkness did He say, “Wow!!! Look at how dark it is!!!”  I guarantee if He did it would be dark still today.  No He said the opposite of what He saw and when He did He then saw LIGHT!!!  The question is do you believe it and ARE YOU CONSCIOUS of it.  Understand something and never forget it.  JESUS DIDN’T JUST GIVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU.  HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO YOU!!!

All of Jesus’s life, health, strength, prosperity, shalom, protection, deliverance, favor and the glory that the Father gave Him He has turned around and given it to us.  As He is so are you in this world. AMEN!! Say Amen somebody.

All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!

 

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT- THE FATHER LOVES YOU JUST AS MUCH AS JESUS!!!

I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.  John 17:23 NIV

This weekend we are going to keep it very simply.  I want to ask you to take this weekend and really think about your Father,  Big Poppa, God the Father Himself.  The Word tells us God is Love.  Jesus is God’s Son and at one time He was His ONLY Son.  That is no longer true.  Now God the Father because of Jesus’s finished work on the Cross has many son’s.  I am one of them and if you are born again so are you.  The Father loves Jesus a whooooooollllllleeeeeeee lot!!!!!  But guess what  the scripture above says God loves you just as much as  He loves Jesus.  I’m gonna say that again.  GOD LOVES YOU JUST AS MUCH AS HE LOVES  JESUS!!!  Take this weekend and think about that.  Read the scripture, then reads it again.  Then read it again.  Then say, “God the Father loves me just as much as He loves Jesus,”  Then say it again.  Then believe it then say it again.  Stick with it and it will do something good to your soul.  Have a great weekend!!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT RECEIVING ALL OF JESUS!!!

Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— Psalms 103:2

As a believer do you know that Jesus has given you everything He has?  That is the only reason why Poppa had Jesus come to Earth as a man and die.  So that He could legally get everything Adam lost back to us.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  Ephesians 1:3 KJV

Do you see the word all there in that verse?  It is the Greek word pas.  It means all, the whole, every kind of blessing.  All means all.  When God gave His all that means He has nothing more to give.

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Romans 8:33 KJV

The word all in the verse is the same word pas. This means that when God gave you Jesus, He also gave you everything with Him.  It’s like a combo meal at Wendy’s.  The fries and drink come with the burger.  The prosperity and healing come with Jesus.  The shalom and the joy come with Jesus.  So when we see Psalms 103:2  we have to look at all the good things in the Old Testament and the New Testament to know what are ALL HIS BENEFITS!!  We have been redeemed from the curse of the law but Christ never redeemed us from the blessings of the law, they are still ours!!!!  Poppa only gives good to us. There are many things in the Old Testament that do not apply and are not for us but all the good, all the good promises of God the Father are still ours today.  God is a GOOD GOD!! He’s a GOOD Daddy.  So when you ask for more of Jesus you are insinuating that God has held something back from you.  Please don’t do that.  That is how Eve got tricked.  The snake (really it was the devil in the snake) said God knows when you eat of the tree you will become like God.  They were already like God, Genesis 1:26 says so.  That statement by God in Genesis 1:26 to be like Him is a promise that is still available today through Christ Jesus, who is the means for man to once again be just like God the Father!!! To be just like His Daddy!!

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 1:20 NIV

So  as you see we are in Christ and for us all of God’s promises are in Christ an automatic YES for us as we agree and say AMEN!!!

i say AMEN to all of God’s promises, how about you?  I don’t want more or a little bit of Jesus.  I receive ALL OF HIM!!!  This is receiving ALL OF JESUS!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT “YOU” ARE GOD’S FAITH!!!

By faith we understand that time was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible. Hebrews 11:3 International Standard Version

Yesterday’s teaching on FAITH IS TIME’S PARENT is completely AWESOME!! I am not saying that because I wrote it but because its DA TRUTH that Poppa wrote thru me.  When you understand that God the Father has given you dominion over all the works of His hands, you will begin to walk in authority and start talking to things and they will obey you!  Jesus said they would.

“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Mark 11:23 NIV

Whatever is used to create it has control over, can change it, alter it, place it into a different state or make it into something else.  You see this with Jesus turning water into wine.  So let’s talk about YOU!!!  God the Father MADE YOU!! How does God get things done?  He uses His Faith!!!  He used faith to create the world and everything in and on it including YOU!!! So for all practical purposes you ARE GOD’s FAITH in manifestation.  God the Father saw you on the inside of Himself. He knew every detail about you, what color he wanted you to be, the shape of your nose, how tall you would be etc.  He releases you in spirit form into the interaction between your mothers egg and your fathers sperm to give you a human body so that you can effect change in this physical world.

When you understand you are God’s faith and that you are God’s son or daughter and that everything produces after its own kind you will then begin to look at things and see things and desire to bring into manifestation things placed in you by God for you to create and bring into manifestation.  The IPod is a manifestation of a desire of God brought to pass thru a man Steve Jobs.  Star Wars is a manifestation of God likeness thru a man named George Lucas.  George Lucas created hundreds of worlds and being with his imagination and his faith the same way God created you with His imagination and His faith.  Think about that!! Then think about what you are suppose to bring into manifestation.

All the blessed to you!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT “FAITH IS TIME’S PARENT!”

By faith we understand that time was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible.  Hebrews 11:3  International Standard Version

WOW!!! Time was created by faith, by or at the Word of God!!!!!  Do you know what that means?  That means that TIME is subject to FAITH!! FAITH is time’s parent.   You created your children and they should be subject to you.  In normal cases the parent tells the child what to do. Ahhh!! But let’s move to the present time.  Today we see perversions of order.  We see children telling parents what to do or what they are going to do regardless of what the parent says.  This is out of order!!!  So is time telling believer’s what they can and cannot do or when they can do it.  We must know and acknowledge that we are full grown son’s of God because of the Son of God, Jesus.  Through out the Bible you see Jesus taking authority over time, space and matter.  If you are born again you have inherited all of Jesus’s abilities because you are joint heir WITH Him.

In the beginning of John 2 Jesus’s Mom came to Jesus because the people at a wedding had run out of wine.  Let’s look at what Jesus said.

“Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.” John 2:4 New Living Translation

Jesus was basically saying, “Momma that’s not our problem plus its not really time for me to start doing signs and wonders yet”   Then Mary said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you do it.”  She was not ignoring Jesus, she was ignoring time because she knew He could do something about it RIGHT NOW! Faith is always NOW!!!  NOW, how does this apply to us today. You get a $350 bill thats  due tomorrow.  You don’t have the $350 and payday is two weeks away.  What are you going to do?  You go to Jesus just like Mary and whatever He says to you, you do it.   You are not going to Jesus to get Him to make something for you. You are going to Jesus to get the provision that was already prepared for you before the foundation of the world in Him.  The Lord told me something a long time ago and I will share it with you.  He said, “Vincent, what you see and what you have are two different things.”  I will never forget it and neither should you.

As a believer, you must know and understand that you ARE the righteousness of God in Christ and with that righteousness comes RIGHTS. You have a right to live by faith and not by time or your paycheck. How do the righteous live?
Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” Galatians 3:11  New International Version

By faith we understand that time was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible. Hebrews 11:3 International Standard Version

Faith created time! So for time to turn around and tell a faith filled believer what to do is the equivalent of a child telling the parent what to do.  It’s out of order!! Now let’s look at something else Jesus said.

I tell all of you with certainty, whatever you prohibit on earth will have been prohibited in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will have been permitted in heaven.  Matthew 18:18  International Standard Version 

If you allow the child of time to tell the parent of your faith what to do then that is the way things will go. Whatever YOU prohibit on earth will be prohibited in Heaven.  Whatever you allow on Earth will have been allowed in Heaven.  Faith is superior to the law and time. Time is a form of law and Romans 6:14 says we are not under the law but under GRACE Who is Jesus!!  Exercise your rights and authority thru faith over time, space and matter just like Jesus and you will reign in Life just like the Word says, thru Jesus Christ our Lord.

All the blessed to you!!! Shalom!

 

 

 

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT WEEKEND EDITION- ALL THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS

8“The LORD will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. Deuteronomy 28:8  New Living Translation

Hey everyone!!! I hope you are doing well.  Many of us have resolutions goal and things we want to accomplish.  I encourage you to use your faith to aide the manifestation of you God given dreams.   I am sure as God’s creative and industrious people you have ideas and plans of things that are in your heart to do.  There are things maybe that have been on your heart for years and they have never faded away.  These are the things I want to talk about with you.  Many times in church or else where you may be concerned about whether something is the will of the Lord.  It’s easy to find Poppa’s will in His Word.  So lets take a look at what Poppa said about the work and things you do.

8“The LORD will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. Deuteronomy 28:8 New Living Translation

6Wherever you go and whatever you do,
you will be blessed. Deuteronomy 28:6 New Living Translation

12The LORD will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do.  Deuteronomy 28:12 New Living Translation

I want you to notice that Poppa has said 3 TIMES in the same chapter that He would bless ALL THE WORK of your hands.  Now let’s deal with the ridiculousness first.  God is not going to bless foolishness and evil and I KNOW that God’s people are not asking Him to bless evil works.  Love thinks the best so I will not think about that.  Okay enough of that.  Back to DA TRUTH.  Expect Poppa to bless your endeavors, your business, your books, your job, the food you cook.  WHY?  Because he said 3 TIMES He would bless ALL THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS!!

All and only the blessed to you! Shalom!!!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT THE BLESSINGS OF DEUTERONOMY 28 PART 2

1“If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. 2You will experience all these blessings if you obey the LORD your God:

3Your towns and your fields
will be blessed.
4Your children and your crops
will be blessed.
The offspring of your herds and flocks
will be blessed.
5Your fruit baskets and breadboards
will be blessed.
6Wherever you go and whatever you do,
you will be blessed.
7“The LORD will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!

8“The LORD will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

9“If you obey the commands of the LORD your God and walk in his ways, the LORD will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do. 10Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the LORD, and they will stand in awe of you.

11“The LORD will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. 12The LORD will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. 13If you listen to these commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom.

Yesterday we ended the post letting you know not to disqualify yourself from the blessings because what you could not do God the Father has done through Jesus Christ.  Am I implying that you can live like a hellion do whatever you want and still be blessed?  Let me ask you a question, “Is the kindness and mercy of God a blessing?”  I would say it is.  I am not going to answer the question I stated earlier right now because someone will try to misconstrue what I am trying to say.  But I will let The Word of God answer for me.  Kindness and mercy is a blessing from God.  Poppa has offered Jesus to everyone, even those who refuse Him, so they have the same opportunity to be blessed as you do if you are a believer.  Let’s see what The Word says for people who are unthankful and even evil.

“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for He is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked.  Luke 6:35 New Living Translation

Hmmm, so Poppa is KIND to the unthankful and the wicked (evil).  That is a blessing.  So now I will answer the question.  Yes a person who may be acting like a rascal, or even may be unsaved can be BLESSED!!!! How?  Because The Word of God says The Father still blesses them and He TELLS YOU TO BLESS THEM!!!

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;  Matthew 5:44 KJV

So if you disagree that a person living a rough, rugged ungodly life cannot be blessed you are not disagreeing with me but The Word.  Sometimes we get so tied up with the big blessings we over look the little ones, like oxygen, like the warmth of sunlight so you don’t freeze.  Poppa gives to the good and the bad.  He always has been and always will be a BLESSER!!!

In the Old Testament it was do good get good, do bad get beat!!!!  Even then He created a way for them to still be blessed by offering sacrifices which was just a shadow of Jesus, the Ultimate Sacrifice.  That is not the case any longer. Jesus took the punishment for all our sins and as a result we have a right and benefit to all the blessings of God because of Christ not because of you or what you do or don’t do.  If it was left up to you and what you do and don’t do, you would be on your way to hell with gasoline draws on and so would I.  JESUS got our bad on the cross and we got all the good, all the blessing that was rightfully His. This is the reason Poppa sent Jesus to connect us back to Him by receiving Jesus and with Jesus FREELY GIVE US ALL THINGS!!!  But like anything of faith they have to be received.  If you are not conscious that the blessings are yours and available you will go without.  If a person is sick and they do not know that by Jesus’ stripes they were healed they could continue on in poor health and even die when healing was available the whole time.

Now hopefully no one today will say, “Jesus wont heal sinners!”  That is not true! When Jesus was on Earth the ONLY people He healed was sinners.  That was all there was to heal.  He had not died yet let alone be resurrected.  So please…. understand because of Jesus’s obedience which was total,  ALL THE BLESSINGS CAN NOW COME ON YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU!!  Read them and eat them, meditate them to digest them and receive every blessing that The Word of God says He has blessed us with.

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!
