Our website is back up

In reference to a previous post on June 10, 2017—> https://devotionalfortheday.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/our-website-has-been-removed-from-the-internet/

Our harassers pulled our website down for several days on a false copyright claim for which our host Godaddy.com was NEVER ABLE TO SUPPLY ANY PROOF OF! We have filed complaints with the BBB and others against the host Godaddy but they keep professing lies and refusing to refund money for the term duration and that which was paid for the year 2018. Someone at Godaddy has been bought off by our harassers to take down our website.

We never expected to place our website back up but the Lord worked it all out to our benefit. We have transferred to a different host. We are working to make repairs to the webpages. In the meantime pages, tables, videos may not appear correctly for a while. Please be patient.

His Name shall endure forever.

Rich prophecies from the Old Testament concerning our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. In fact the entire Old Testament of the Bible points to the birth of our Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ. Starting my Christmas verses – telling of the coming of our Messiah! As we think of the Lord Jesus’ birth, we can also catch a glimpse of things to come from prophecies from His Word and rejoice in them. Abba Father – Your holy Word speaks of prophecies in so many places of Your precious Son. Given the judgments and righteousness of God, He will be qualified to judge. He will be King over all the earth and all will worship Him. He is the Redeemer, the Creator of all things and all worship is to be given to Him, in the same manner as the Father. His name shall continue as will those who believe in Him and carry His name as “Christians”. He is the giver of all blessings and is blessed as He sits at the right hand of God. This is a picture of the Messiah and His kingdom when He will return to the earth. We give Him all glory and honor and praise!!!

Psalm 72:2,8,11,17
He will judge Your people with righteousness. He shall have dominion from sea to sea. Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him. His name shall endure forever, His name shall continue as long as the sun, and men shall be blessed in Him. All nations shall call Him blessed.

I will praise the Lord at all times.

This is a song of thanksgiving to the Lord. To praise God continually is a way to show others how to magnify and exalt the Lord. This invitation is directed toward those who are humble and teachable. This Psalm was written by David and he praised his God all day long, whether in times of adversity or times of prosperity. David praised his God not only with his heart but also with his lips and vocally sang his praises. When someone follows the Lord faithfully and closely – their joy of the Lord will be reflected in their whole demeanor and will be evident for all to see.

Psalms 34:1-5
I will praise the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul should make its boast in the Lord. The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy.

There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.

I do a thing every year at Christmas time where I start a month or so before Christmas and I do verses from the bible that speak of the birth of our Savior and King, Jesus Christ. As a preface to this Daily Verse I send out – I have to say that I realize that Jesus was not born in December and I know that Christmas had beginnings as pagan worship. I have been hearing it more and more these last few years especially as my friends list is growing and I have a wide variety of friends from all over the world. I don’t need a special day to give glory to God for the Gift of His Son! I give Him glory EVERY day!! Hearts and minds of people who don’t know the Lord are tender and pliable and open to Him this time of year as well as Easter/Resurrection Sunday. I am all about Jesus – He is my life and truly my very world. So I guess now I am adding a preface but I will never stop talking to the world about the saving grace found in my King of Kings and Lord of Lords, January through December.

God’s love and blessings to all my friends and family! ♥ Starting with the prophecies from the Old Testament about the coming of the Lord Jesus.

Isaiah 11:1-4
There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him. The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord. His delight is in the fear of the Lord, and He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears. But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth.

The book of Isaiah is rich with prophecy of the Messiah and shows His descent from the line of David under the titles of rod and branch from the stem of Jesse. Jesse was King David’s father and his lineage goes back to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The Messiah would be greater than the original tree and would bear fruit forever. God’s promise that the Messiah would come from the family of David is fulfilled in the Lord Jesus. The Spirit of the Lord shows that Christ’s kingdom is spiritual in nature and the Spirit of wisdom and understanding gave Him the ability to impart that wisdom and understanding to His disciples and to answer the questions of the Pharisees before they even asked the questions. He had the Spirit of knowledge of God the Father and of all the Scriptures He had the “fear” reverence of the Father and always did the things that pleased His Father. He takes the part of the meek, the lowly, the humble and of the sinners who know and confess their sinfulness and who come to Him for grace, righteousness, pardon and eternal life. We can look to Him for how to treat others in our lives with the same compassion, love and mercy that He shows us.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving.

Today I would like to thank and praise God!! There is so much to thank Him for and so much to praise Him for. Isn’t the list limitless and ongoing forever?? Don’t we praise Him everyday for all He has blessed us with?? Abba – my Abba – our Abba!! Yes the list is ongoing and we never cease praising You!!! For all things – but most of all for our blessed Savior who gave His life up for us.

Psalms 100
Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God. It is He who has made us and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good. His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

Amen!
