"There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit." (John 3:1-8).

(3) And for the LORD's chosen ones who work at EL AL Airlines - that they may hear the good news and receive the LORD JESUS as their MESSIAH, (4) Plus please pray for my co-workers at Papa John and Federal Express - that the LORD would send labourers their way to tell them of the SAVIOUR.
DATE: January 21, 2018 (Sunday) -- Continuation from page 3 of this blog. Thank you, O LORD GOD, for this day that YOU have given me by YOUR infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS!
The Book of Job: Chapter 3 when Job starts to share his deep emotional distress over his sudden disaster, being unaware of the trial allowed by the good LORD GOD at the accusation of the evil one against him. Job goes on to ask the "why" question again, why bother to give light to those who are totally lost, their paths hidden, and as Job reckons it, "to those whom GOD has fenced in" (v. 23 GW). Job shares with us just how darkness envelopes us when we are faced with a disaster. Job keeps speaking of darkness, of gloom, of death. It got so bad for Job that he can't even eat! He has no appetite for food any more, "When my food is in front of me, I sigh" (v. 24 GW). And his depression flows out from his heart like water. Then he is confronted with his most dreaded fear, "What I fear most overtakes me. What I dread happens to me." (v. 25 GW). Just like the infection in my back. It was something that I dreaded. And when I felt the pain, I panicked, and was thinking of giving up my other job at Papa John, and just work Fed Ex, hoping to relieve the problem by doing so. But the good LORD helped me with it, and by HIS infinite grace in CHRIST, I am still working the 2 jobs.
It must be rough for Job (I imagine). He must have problem sleeping with that skin disease (sores). And he had this for several days! "I have no peace! I have no quiet! I have no rest!" (v. 26 GW). And as if that wasn't enough, trouble keeps coming to him, at him!
And when we read in chapter 4, we see one of Job's so-called friends, Eliphaz, taking this time to talk to Job. Job was looking for either sympathy or empathy, but got neither from Eliphaz. Eliphaz couldn't really understand what Job was going through, so he kind of slightly rebuked Job, "If someone tries to talk to you, will you become impatient?" (v. 4:2 GW). I think Eliphaz was trying to tell Job to listen up, and do not dismiss him. Then Eliphaz continues as he justifies his intrusion, "But who can keep from talking?" (v. 2 GW). Then Eliphaz tries to flatter (or encourage?) Job by reflecting on his past selfless acts, "Certainly, you have instructed many people: when hands were weak, you made them strong. When someone stumbled, you lifted him up with your words. When knees were weak, you gave them strength." (4:3-4 GW). So, Eliphaz starts with his accusations of Job. Eliphaz presumes that when trouble comes to Job, he "faints" (KJV), he reacts negatively, "But trouble comes to you, and you're impatient. It touches you, and you panic." (Job 4:5 GW). This is what Eliphaz can come up with for Job, but it is far from encouraging! Then Eliphaz had to drive the nail further, "Doesn't your fear of GOD give you confidence and your lifeime of integrity give you hope?" (v. 6 GW). It's as if Eliphaz was saying, look what good your righteous/pure lifestyle got you. And to make his point, Eliphaz appeals to the righteousness built in by the LORD GOD in HIS creation, "Now think about this: which innocent person died an untimely death? Find me a decent person who has been destroyed." (v. 7 GW). It's as if Eliphaz was trying to tell Job that he must be doing something wrong since he was into the problem that he is presently experiencing. And Eliphaz tells Job of his experience, as if Job doesn't know, or have witnessed the same, "Whenever I saw those who plowed wickedness and planted wickedness, they gathered its harvest" (v. 8 GW). I wonder just how long Eliphaz has been Job's friend. He seems to want to impress to Job of his wrong-doing, that Job must have done something wrong. "GOD destroys them with HIS breath and kills them with a blast of HIS anger" (v. 9 GW).Then Eliphaz says something metaphorically (?), "Though the roar of the lion and the growl of the ferocious lion is loud, the young lions have had their teeth knocked out" (v. 10 GW). Does this mean that even though the parents are people of renown, their kids are "broken", wayward because of the parents less than perfect lives?
DATE: January 22, 2018 (Monday) -- Thank you, O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY for this one more and new day of YOUR infinite grace, all because of the LORD JESUS.
Just as this guy said at BGEA YouTube video when he tronado hit and destroyed his house, his property, "It's all gone in a second!" "Sometimes (GOD) send us to be where we don't want to be..." (because the people there needs GOD's garce in CHRIST JESUS).
DATE: January 27, 2018 (Saturday) -- Thank you, blessed LORD GOD, for giving me this new day, one more day, of YOUR infinite grace (in CHRIST JESUS).
he Book of Job -- Chapter 4:12-21, Eliphaz shares to Job his strange "visions in the night" (V. 13 GW). Today's date is January 28, 2018 (Sunday): Eliphaz shares to Job that terrifying revelation he experienced in his sleep, and that is no mortal man is righteous before the ALMIGHTY and HOLY GOD (v. 17 GW). As RC Sproul says, no finite being can comprehend the infinite (LORD GOD). And even the angel who are created a little higher than us are also created creatures (v. 18 GW). So consequently, we who are human beings, are a more chargeable "of folly" who are made out of the dust of the ground. Thus Eliphaz points out the status of us, the creatures, "How much more will HE accuse those who live in clay houses that have their foundation in the dust. Those houses can be crushed quicker than a moth!" (v. 19 GW). And that these ones (people) live and die unbeknowns to others, (v. 20). Then when they die, whatever accomplishments, "their excellency", they have done dies with them (v. 21). Finally, Eliphaz ends his discussion with "Haven't the ropes of their tent been loosened? Won't they die without wisdom?" (v. 21 GW).
DATE: January 29, 2018 (Monday) -- Thank you, O LORD GOD, for this new day of YOUR infinite grace (all in the LORD JESUS).
Job chapter 5: This time, Eliphaz is making sense, as he continues to exhort Job.
DATE: February 2, 2018 (Friday) -- It's the second month of the new year, and I am still at Job. But first of all, i thank the good LORD GOD ALMIGHTY for this one more day of HIS infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS.
DATE: February 4, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thank you, O LORD GOD, for this day once again, that YOU have given me (one more chance at life) all because of the grace in my blessed SAVIOUR and LORD JESUS.
Chapter 4 of Job tells of Eliphaz explainng himself as to why he has to speak, "If one attempts a word with you, will you become weary?" (v. 2 NKJV), even though Job might not feel like talking, even talking to anyone.NOTE: By the way, it is Superbowl Sunday. And the teams in the game are the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. I am not sure where in the Bible timeline Job is before the prophets. And the knowledge of the MOST HOLY is still indelibly etched in the hearts of men. And so Eliphaz continues to challenge Job's uprightness, "Cry out! Is there anyone to answer you? To which of the holy ones will you turn?" (v. 5:1 GW). Like, Eliphaz was saying, "Let go, Job! Put up your fists.", or better, "Answer me!". And try and turn to the holy ones for your help(?). And Eliphaz continues with declaring the worthless ends of wrath/anger, and envy/jealousy, (v. 2). And the end of the fool, and that is, his being uprooted, (v. 3).
DATE: February 6, 2018 (Tuesday) -- It is the 2nd month of the new year, 2018, already.And the blessed LORD GOD has kept me until now, by HIS abundant and infinite mercies and grace in CHRIST JESUS.
The Book Of Job: There are so many acquired truths from Eliphaz's lips as he continues to declare things that he has observed from experience and from declarations of GOD's laws written in the hearts of men and of HIS creation. TIME: 9:46PM -- The LORD GOD is the great creator, most holy, HE is LORD over all! HE has chosen this book to give us the knowledge of HIMSELF, the divinely inspired WORD of the LORD, (the book of Job).
DATE: February 8, 2018 (Thursday) -- O LORD GOD, YOU alone deserve all the glory, honour, and praise - in CHRIST JESUS, and HIM alone!
DATE: February 10, 2018 (Saturday) -- The LORD GOD, creator of heaven and earth, is ever so merciful, and gracious to us, people who are so sinful, despising HIM, even HIS divine goodness to us, even from HIS SON, the LORD JESUS, who loved us and gave HIMSELF for us! Thank you, blessed LORD GOD for this new day, special day of YOUR infinite grace. By HIS infinite sovereign will, and by HIS eternal will and perfect love, HE has made it possible for me to know the SAVIOUR, HIS great sacrifice for me on the cross! I could've been born in the time of Noah, and would have been one of those "wicked" humans, which was killed in the flood! Or I could have been born on the other side of the cross, not knowing of the SAVIOUR, prophesied by the prophets of old. No. But the good LORD GOD has sovereignly decreed that I be born at this time in history, and be a recepient of HIS amazing grace in CHRIST JESUS!
The Book of Job: The good LORD has given me grace to continue reading and studying HIS HOLY WORD. So, I have been thinking and mulling in my mind the book of Job. And what I came up with is the knowledge of the people of Job's time of the LORD GOD. I have been researching the book of Job in the internet, and I came up with Chuck Swindoll's site, "Insight For Living". In chapter 5, Eliphaz suggests Job's sin by the things that happened to him and his family, "For wrath kills a foolish man, and envy slays a simple one." (v. 2 NKJV). Wrong emotions destroys. The very nature of things are ordered by the justice of GOD. And Eliphaz shares his observations, "I have seen the foolish taking root, but suddenly I cursed his dwelling place." (v. 3 NKJV). What Eliphaz considers as foolish, that person is taken by his/her wicked ways(?). "His sons are far from safety, they are crushed in the gate, and there is no deliverer." (v. 4 NKJV). Is this a reference to Job's children who were killed? And this right after their deaths. And Eliphaz goes on to say things from his experience or from his observations, "Because the hungry eat up his harvest, taking it even from the thorns, and a snare snatches their substance." (v. 5 NKJV). Satan is the destroyer, deceiver, and murderer. So those who are his own are under his mercy, and he is merciless! The riches in this world, the evil one uses to deceive, and destroy lives (our lives). The wicked one uses this world to keep us from the SAVIOUR. But Eliphaz was pointing out the vanity of the foolish people storing up wealth, because all these things will be taken by another.
DATE: February 12, 2018 (Monday) -- Thank you, blessed LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, for this day that YOU have given me once again (and this because of the LORD JESUS).
The Book of Job: I am at chapter 5, and sort of dragging along. I am reading of Eliphaz speaking his mind about Job. He isn't comforting him, and keeps pointing to Job's possible sins that caused Job's problem.That thing that Eliphaz was talking about, v. 5, I can understand. It's like when I do work for GrubHub, and in an instance, I get a ticket, and that take a portion of my pay.
DATE: February 15, 2018 (Thursday) -- Thank the good LORD GOD ALMIGHTY for this day, this one more chance at life, of the LORD GOD's abundant grace and tender mercies in CHRIST JESUS.
The LORD GOD has answered my plea - the supervisor who was in charge yesterday and today allowed me to leave earlier, and so I was able to go to send my support to Cecil! Taiwan was the one in charge to day. But the evil one has a way of messing things. My supervisor at Papa John had me stay a ittle later, and was telling me off! But I know that the LORD is in control! the LORD GOD sees everything, knows everything, and is sovereign over all things!
As for my Bible Study in the book of Job, I am dragging, I am doing a verse by verse study.
DATE: February 16, 2018 (Friday) -- Thank YOU, O LORD GOD, for a good night's rest. And thank YOU, LORD, for keeping me throughout the night, all in CHRIST JESUS.
DATE: February 17, 2018 (Saturday) -- I am watching TBN's Country Music with Bill Gaither, and they have the former Randy Travis sing before his stroke. How frail life is. If it were not for the grace of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY... The LORD GOD has and is keeping me in the hollow of HIS hands (all because of the LORD JESUS).
All of scripture is inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD ALMIGHTY! I can see some of the "truths" from Eliphaz' experiences, as was inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT to bring to Eliphaz' mind, in David's psalms.
DATE: February 18, 2018 (Sunday) -- Glory, honour, and praise belong only to the LORD GOD. The LORD GOD has given me this day again by HIS grace in CHRIST JESUS.
The Book of Job: In chapter 5, Eliphaz is letting Job have it. All these knowledge of the LORD GOD, Eliphaz uses against Job. It is noteworthy to see that when trouble comes, we (people like us) tend to look at the wrong thins that we could've done as the result of the trouble. Just like what Eliphaz was doing to Job. According to Eliphaz's observation of life, wrath kills a foolish man, and envy slays a simple one.
DATE: February 19, 2018 (Monday) -- The good LORD GOD has given me another day of grace, in CHRIST JESUS.
The Book of Job: Eliphaz continues to tell Job of his experience, that he has seen the foolish taking root (the foolish suceeding), but after a while, the foolish gets cursing. Then Eliphaz sees the children of the foolish gets devastated in the gates, being far from safety. And no one can deliver them. It's as if Job doesn't know these things. Then Eliphaz continues on, "What a stubborn fool gathers, hungry people eat. They take even from among the thorns, and the thirsty people pant after his wealth." (Job 5:5 GW). At least Eliphaz distinguishes between the GOD-fearing from the foolish. As Job very well know, the LORD GOD has been blessing him with abundance, as he honors the LORD, and he fears the LORD GOD.
And Eliphaz continues to tell Job, as if Job doesn't know yet, that we are born to trouble, trouble that doesn't come from the ground, nor from the soil, but we are born to it (v. 6-7).
DATE: February 22, 2018 (Thursday) -- Thank you, blessed LORD GOD, for this day and for YOUR HOLY WORD, that YOU have given us, in YOUR tender mercies and grace in CHRIST JESUS. YOU have allowed me to read and study YOUR HOLY WORD, by YOUR infinite grace.
I just noticed after contemplating on this verse, that Eliphaz has noticed this obvious truth; that we as humans are prone/drawn to trouble (because of sin specifically at the garden of eden), "For affliction does not come from the dust, nor does trouble spring from the ground; yet man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward." (v. 6-7 NKJV).
DATE: February 23, 2018 (Friday) -- The LORD GOD, FATHER in heaven, through CHRIST JESUS, LORD and SAVIOUR of the whole world, has infinitely given me this day of abundant grace.
I am reading through the book of Psalms also, as I read and study the book of Job.
DATE: February 25, 2018 (Sunday) -- Glory, honour, and praise belong only to the LORD GOD, in CHRIST JESUS, blessed REDEEMER and LORD.
The Book of Job: I am still here at chapter 5, and in that part where Eliphaz is telling Job of his piety(?), "But as for me, I would seek God, And to God I would commit my cause— Who does great things, and unsearchable, Marvelous things without number.He gives rain on the earth, And sends waters on the fields. He sets on high those who are lowly, And those who mourn are lifted to safety. He frustrates the devices of the crafty, So that their hands cannot carry out their plans. He catches the wise in their own craftiness, And the counsel of the cunning comes quickly upon them. They meet with darkness in the daytime, And grope at noontime as in the night.But He saves the needy from the sword, From the mouth of the mighty, And from their hand.So the poor have hope, And injustice shuts her mouth." (v. 8-16 NKJV). Bu all those things that he "boasted" of are the real and eternal attributes of the LORD GOD! When Eliphaz said to Job , "But as for me, I would seek GOD, and to GOD I would commit my cause..." (v. 8 NKJV). But Job is already trusting the good LORD GOD. He offers sacrifices to the LORD every day just for oblation offerings (?) for his sons and daughters - his family. There are times when I reflect on life and I get reminded of the many, many mistakes, sins, and wrong turns, missed opportunities I have done/taken, and I sigh, and thank GOD that HE is GOD; that HE is sovereign. ANd GOD is in full control of all things; and HE is in the throne!
The next verses are very true. Here Eliphaz declares the love of GOD for HIS creation, for HIS own people, "Behold, happy is the man whom GOD corrects;" (v. 17 NKJV). How blessed aer you when the LORD GOD corrects you, because it shows that HE really cares and loves you! And so, when confronted with the chastening/correction, your attitude should be, "Therefore do not despise the chastening of the ALMIGHTY" (v. 17 NKJV).
I digress for now. I am reading he book of Esther - afresh in the authorized version (KJV). There are many things in my second reading - the second time around - that I am just noticing, like they come out of the pages. The book of Esher: "Now in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even to Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces:)" (v. 1).
NOTE: Testimony of a godly, fully surrendered to CHRIST life - William Borden, "No RESERVES, no RETREAT, no REGRETS!". Click here for his biography.
Ahasuerus of Esther is considered to be the Persian king, Xerxes at around 465 BC. And he reigned a vast kingdom, "from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces" (v. 1). This happened several years after Ezra, or even Nehemiah, when the return of the people of the LORD had occured.
DATE: February 26, 2018 (Monday) -- Glory, Honour, and praise belong to the great and mighty CREATOR GOD, LORD of heaven and earth, FATHER in heaven. I thank you, O LORD GOD for giving me another day of your infinite grace, all because of CHRIST JESUS.
The Book of Esther: Here is the "gist" of the whole event in Esther's life, "Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:13-14). It is for this very reason why Esther has been placed in that position, to save the LORD GOD's chosen people, and to be rid of those that are their enemies, even from of old! NOTE: I heard Dr. Tony Evans' preaching on this book, and he did a masterful job showing the "invisible" hand of ALMIGHTY GOD masterfully (like a master chess player) moving the chess pieces (circumstances, etc...) to accomplish HIS purposes. (See the video below):
Dr. Tony Evans points out the big deal of "timing", even "GOD's perfect timing"! "GOD is a GOD of reverses. HE can reverse things on a dime!" (Dr. Tony Evans).
DATE: March 3, 2018 (Saturday) -- By the good LORD GOD's grace, I am given another day (in CHRIST JESUS). I thank the good LORD GOD for all the good things as well as the not so good things, that HE has given me, in CHRIST JESUS.
The Book of Job: Here in this chapter (Job 5), Eliphaz rightly boasts of the LORD, although he inadvertantly draws attention to himself. But these things that he pointed out of the LORD GOD are comforting truths for the believer, "I would seek unto GOD, and unto GOD would I commit my cause."
DATE: March 4, 2018 (Sunday) -- The LORD's day. To HIM be glory, honour, and praise. Thank you LORD GOD, FATHER in heaven, for all the good things that YOU give us (undeservedly) every day (all because of the LORD JESUS).
The Book of Job: These inspired truth that Eliphaz shares with Job (which I think Job already knows) is an encouragement for us, the former, against doing evil, and the latter, for doing good and trusting the LORD GOD; "(GOD) which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvelous things without number;" (v. 9). GOD's ways are far above our ways, and HIS thoughts above our thoughts (as the heavens are far above the earth - which is a mere speck in a vast universe). And as David says that they are too wonderful! Then Eliphaz goes on to say, "(GOD) who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:" (v. 10). Here I see the abundant benevolence of the LORD GOD in giving us the source of life for most of our food, refreshment, cleansing, and other necessities for consumption. Then there is the hope of reparation, that there is hope of advancement; that the LORD GOD is able to do justice where justice is due, as Abraham asked presumably of the pre-incarnate LORD JESUS, "Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?" (Genesis 18:25). "To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety. HE disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise." (v. 12). The LORD GOD is holy and righteous, and there is no sin in HIM. Then there is not a wrong that HE does not deal with. "HE taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong." (v. 13). The evil or wicked or deceitful counsels of the wicked will suddenly fall on them. And further, Eliphaz shares with us these inspired truths about the LORD GOD's dealings with us, "They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night." (v. 14). These crafty people will not suceed in their plans because the LORD will keep them from getting there - they will encounter darkness even when it's daytime. "But HE saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty. So the poor have hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth." (v. 15-16). All these truths, Eliphaz is using against Job. The LORD GOD watches over the poor and needy specially from the "crafty" people who seeks to take advantage of them. And so iniquity/sin is prevented!
DATE: March 5, 2018 (Monday) -- The LORD GOD has graciously given me this one more day, all in CHRIST JESUS.
The Book of Job: I know that the LORD GOD is always working, just as the blessed SAVIOUR and LORD JESUS says about the FATHER, "But JESUS answered them, My FATHER worketh hitherto, and I work." (John 5:17); and so does the SAVIOUR until now. He is now in heaven preparing a place for those who believe in HIM, who trusted in HIM. Even though the LORD GOD maintains the whole universe, so HE also watches over us, HIS creation.
DATE: March 11, 2018 (Sunday) -- It's the LORD's DAY, Sunday. And I thank the good LORD for giving me another day of HIS infinite grace in the LORD JESUS. Just as Kathleen Cooke has shared at Family Radio, that most often, the other sources for Bible reading are read first, instead of the Bible itself.
The Book of Job: I have been encouraged by a personality interviewed at Family Radio by Jenny Berkhiser, namely Kathleen Cooke, whom shared that we tend to read other materiels instead of the Bible itself. Kathleen encourages people to go to the Bible first. And I am trying to go through the Bible from cover to cover, so that when someone ask me if I have read the Bible, GOD's HOLY WORD, completely, then I can affirm. I am now going through the book of Job. I am still at chapter 5, and Eliphaz shows an amazing understanding of the ways of the LORD GOD seeing that they didn't have the scriptures then; HIS dealngs with us, HIS creation. Eliphaz says that we shouldn't despise the corrections of the LORD GOD; and that those whom the LORD corrects should hold it with respect and joy seeing that it will come out for their perfect good! "Behold, happy is the man whom GOD correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the ALMIGHTY: for HE maketh sore, and bindeth up: HE woundeth, and HIS hands make whole." (v. 17-18). NOTE: As an aside, I was listening to Family Radio when it was doing the Bible reading time, and they were doing the Psalms, and I thought that David realized how glorious GOD is when he was writing the Psalms. And I pondered the thought when I was listening to the radio (I think) about the blessed LORD JESUS, the SAVIOUR of the entire world. When the thought came to me about someone who said and when I tought about it - that the whole Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament is about the LORD JESUS. Even the SAVIOUR HIMSELF told the 2 disciples of the entire theme of the LAW and the PROPHETS is HIMSELF!
Kathleen Cooke was right when she said that we tend to read just a few sections (or pages) of the HOLY WORD, and then get distracted for other things. Chapter 5 of Job tells of Eliphaz's inspired knowledge of the dealings of the LORD GOD against crafty, for judgment and recompense; and the needy, for good and protection against the wiles of the crafty. Plus the LORD's correction to those whom HE cares for, to those whom HE loves.
DATE: March 12, 2018 (Monday) -- The good LORD has given me another day of HIS infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS.
My blessed LORD GOD, and FATHER in heaven (through the LORD JESUS, blessed SAVIOUR) has been awfully gracious and merciful to me until now. HE keeps sustaining me in my jobs both at Fed Ex and Papa John. And I am really old, but the LORD still gives me strength.
DATE: March 14, 2018 (Wednesday) -- I thank the LORD GOD, FATHER in heaven, for this day that HE has given me again, by HIS tender mercies and grace in CHRIST JESUS.
Those truths that Eliphaz was telling Job were so invaluable, that Eliphaz may not have realized. Job 5:19-27.
DATE: March 16, 2018 (Friday) -- I thank YOU, O LORD GOD, for this day, for every single day, that YOU have given me (by YOUR infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS). NOTE: Dr. R. C. Sproul explains to us of the purpose of our blessed SAVIOUR's ascension to heaven - (see video below):
DATE: March 18, 2018 (Sunday) -- The LORD GOD is ever faithful. Just as that one guy said, that when he goes to Tel Aviv, he is grateful to be there (?); even though he sees that a lot of the people there are atheists! And then he said, because you can see GOD's faithfulness (to HIS own people, to HIS own WORD, and specially to HIS promise); as in Lamentations, when Jeremiah was lamenting the destruction of his people, of the promised land that the LORD GOD gave them - both the northern (Israel) and the southern kingdom (Judah) where Jeremiah was, and where he ministered seeing the destruction of Judah by the Babylonians (Lamentations 3).
DATE: March 25, 2018 (Sunday) -- Back to my reading the Bible agenda, by the good LORD GOD's grace (always in CHRIST JESUS).
I am, by the good LORD's abundant and infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS, following through Matthew Henry's very informative, prolific, and richly full commentary of the book of Job. I was trying to read through the Bible without resorting to using any other resources (commentaries, etc...) because I wanted to read the WORD of GOD for myself first. But I guess I have to now to get the perspective. NOTE: I just thought of something. jobs friends' names and their place of birth or their nationalities. First there is Eliphaz the Temanite, then there is Zophar the Naamathite, and Bildad the Shuhite.
DATE: March 26, 2018 (Monday) -- The good LORD GOD has specially blessed me with this precious day (in the abundance of HIS tender mercies and garce in CHRIST JESUS).
I have reached the 11th chapter of Job, and here, Zophar, another of Job's so-called friends was rebuking him. And here I also found "jewels scriptures" like in verse 19, "And thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee (or as in other versions, "many will court your favor)" (ESV)". This is just one of the benefits of (according to Zophar in accusing Job) "If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands towards HIM; if iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles." (v. 13-14). Zophar is a GOD-fearing man, but he mis-diagnosed Job's situation. But Zophar knows how it is to be up-front, and honest (open) before the LORD GOD. Thus Zophar enjoys the benefits of it. "For then thou shalt lift up thy face without spot; (Then you shall be able to show your face without being ashamed,) yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear: (and you will be secure and unafraid.)" (v. 15 KJV and GW). All these the LORD GOD will do for you - all good things, and honourable, by HIS grace in CHRIST JESUS.
I am just thinking of Job, a righteous man, living in his community. I am sure that there are base men there, but the LORD GOD over-shadows Job with HIS mighty arms (of protection). Job's righteous life was such that even the LORD GOD notices his fear of HIM.
DATE: March 31, 2018 (Saturday) -- Easter Sunday is tomorrow. It is the commemoration of the resurrection of the LORD JESUS. I thank the LORD GOD once more for this day of grace that HE has given me so generously.
DATE: April 2, 2018 (Monday) -- Thank the LORD GOD for this new and another day that HE has given me again. All because of the LORD JESUS' sake.
Have listened to Voice of the Martyrs conversation with a lady defector from North Korea. The lady was sharing how she founfd out about the LORD JESUS even when she was at North Korea through the picture of her mom.
DATE: April 4, 2018 (Wednesday) -- Glory, honour, and praise belong to the LORD GOD alone (to GOD the FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT).
I am watching YouTube Ligonier Q&A #2 on September 10, 2013. The panel talked about the believer's care over his/her sin.
DATE: April 4, 2018 (Wednesday) -- I thank the LORD GOD (in CHRIST JESUS) in all of the (for) good things that the FATHER has given me, even this precious day of grace.
I am trying to go over chapter 14 of Job. But I have limited time. I have to go to work.
NOTE: I am back from work (Papa John), and am slowly going over Job 12.
DATE: April 5, 2018 (Thursday) -- Thanksgiving, honour, and praise belong to the LORD GOD alone (in CHRIST JESUS).
The LORD GOD has taken care of me (my need for a brief R&R [rest and relaxation]) today. Taiwan, our substitute supervisor let me leave early today (6AM) and that gave me time to rest before going to my other job (Papa John).
I am reading chapter 12 (going over it again) to try and get what Job is trying to say. He is having this discussion with the 3 guys who were supposed to be his friends.
DATE: April 14, 2018 (Saturday) -- Thank you, O LORD GOD, for this day (this blessing of another day of life, of YOUR heavenly grace on me this day - all in CHRIST JESUS).
The good LORD helped me with the tire problem (Saturday). I noticed that the tire was losing air but I wasn't sure. So I took the car to the tire shop, and there was a scrrew stuck in it. The tire guy pulled the screw out and plugged the tire, and fixed it, all for $10. All the while I was driving the car with a leaky tire that is almost going flat! This was like that for 2-3 days. And the good LORD GOD kept me from getting a total flat.
DATE: April 15, 2018 (Sunday) -- To the LORD GOD be glory, honour, and praise!
Job 14: The LORD GOD has given me (with HIS great mercies and grace - in the SAVIOUR) this day to enjoy, and to read HIS HOLY WORD. As I read through chapter 14, I can feel Job's knowledge of our fleeting lives. Specially now that my nephews are grown up. I can remember when they were really small. But now they are all grown up!
DATE: April 16, 2018 (Monday) -- Always give the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD the glory, honour, and praise that HE so deserve; for HE is good, an HIS mercy endures forever! (And this in CHRIST JESUS).
The Book of Job: I am now at chapter 14 (painfully slowly), and have used eSword's free and included in the software (by Rick Meyers) resources (Commentaries, etc...)
DATE: April 21, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thanksgiving, glory, honour, and praise belongs to HIM who is righteous and holy, even the LORD GOD (in CHRIST JESUS).
I am so blessed by the good LORD GOD for having, for having access, for being able to read, for having the special chance to read GOD's HOLY WORD, for having other resources available to me (by means of eSword apps), and other such resources (even in the internet, and other ways) because f the LORD GOD's infinite goodness to me in the LORD JESUS!
As R. C. Sproul has shown me via the internet (Ligoniers Ministries) that all of heaven's resources are given us - at such an eternal price, namely, the cross! The eternal precious sacrifice of the LORD JESUS, GOD HIMSELF in human flesh, who lived the perfect, obedient to GOD the eternal FIRST PERSON of the GODHEAD (GOD the FATHER), suffered in the hands of cruel men (us), and died the most brutal death imaginable, all for us!
Job 14: Here we know the truth of our fleeting lives. Job knew of the first human's sin, it's consequences, as the LORD GOD has said, that if he eats of the fruit of the forbidden tree, that he shall surely die! We were meant to live differently, but because of the fall, we were subjected to death (as an act of mercy from the LOVING HOLY GOD, our CREATOR)! "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." (Job 14:1-2).
Here, we see these people (along with Job) discussing about life under GOD's sovereignty; trying to anyway, according to their understanding.
DATE: April 23, 2018 (Monday) -- Thank YOU, O LORD GOD, for all of the infinite grace (blessings) that YOU have given and continue to give me in the LORD JESUS up today.
Job and his so-called friends are talking about why he is in the situation that he is at the present time (in).The story of Job is uneventful. Nothing spectacular is happening. Except at the very beginning (start). When you are struck with calamity, and you are grounded, like Job, or when you are stumped, and you wonder why this is happening to you, then you try to find out why. And these are what these "friends" of Job are trying to do, along with Job himself. Job is reflecting on his devastating situation. Job (he), I surmise, is trying to figure out why, just as his friends are also. (Makes me think of Sherlock Holmes who is trying to solve a crime by extrapolation/deduction).
NOTE: I heard from one preacher about how the evil one, the accuser of the brethren, is allowed by the LORD GOD (in all of HIS sovereignty, holy and righteous, to wreak his havoc here on earth, accusing, persecuting, destroying, etc... the believers. Until that final time when he and his minions will be forever thrown in that place of unending torment (hell, hades where the fire is not quenched, and the worms do not die!).
The Book of Job: I was just thinking, mulling, pondering about Job. If I was brought to the same circumstance (but I am not upright like Job), what would I be thinking, or what would I do, or even how would I react? Job was ruminating the possible reasons why he was afflicted with these painful woes. Notwithstanding, the grace of the LORD GOD in CHRIST will prevail in Job's life against the accusations, mischiefs, harm, and wickedness of the evil one! "And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD." (Job 1:21).
Conversations between these men (between Job and his friends) went this way - first Job lamented his predicament (Job 3), then Eliphaz reacted (Job 4-5). Their discourses is not mere few sentences, but lenghty discussions! Then Job replied (rebuttal) to Eliphaz' comments (Job 6-7). Then Bildad got into the conversation (Job 8). Job's answer to Bidad (Job 9-10). Then, Zophar interjected his own impression on Job's situation (Job 11).
I am getting helpful hints from F. B. Meyer on eSword commentaries (by GOD's grace alone)!
DATE: April 29, 2018 (Sunday) -- The good LORD is always deserving of all the glory, honour, and praise in CHRIST JESUS.
First I thank the good LORD GOD for giving me this one more day of grace (in the LORD JESUS). Then I thank the good LORD GOD for all the abundant blessings that HE showers on me - the internet for me to use to get the different versions of the book of Job. I am now reading Job in the GOD's WORD version (which is much easier for me to understand the conversations between Job and his friends). All of these things are because of the grace of the LORD GOD in CHRIST JESUS. Also, the LORD GOD blesses me with the testimonies of HIS saints through the Voice of the Martyrs (with Todd Nettleton as the host).
Anyways, I am (by the LORD GOD's grace, now understanding the book of Job more clearly and easily. I am reading it in the GOD's WORD version, and flipping to the King James Version, and English Standard Version. Job started speaking/talking to complain about his predicament (Job 3). Then Eliphaz also started talking (to Job) to try to explain why he is in that big problem (Job 4-5). And I am now at Job 12, when Job is now replying to Zophar's response to Job's situation and to Job's responses to their accusations!
In Job 12, Job tells us of his knowledge of the LORD GOD, the HOLY ONE, the ALMIGHTY ONE! "With HIM is strength and wisdom: the deceiver and the deceived are HIS." (Job 12:16). The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom! And Job knows the fear of the LORD! "HE leads the counselors away barefoot and makes fools out of judges." (Job 12:17 GW).
NOTE: I was wathcing the Avenger Movie (hidden camera) and it had those nasty pop-ups! Deleted the sites!
DATE: April 30, 2018 (Monday) -- Glory, honor and praise belong to the LORD GOD alone! And this in CHRIST JESUS>
The Book of Job: In chapter 12-14, Job answered Zophar's explanation of Job's predicament. Now in chapter 15, Eliphaz rebutted Job's response to Zophar still insisting that Job was sinning and is being presumptious, and that Eliphaz and the others know things also.
DATE: May 5, 2018 (Saturday) -- THank the good LORD GOD for every single day that He gives me; for the constant watch care over me at work, when driving, and when sleeping; for everything that HIS sovereign and infinite grace to guide me - and this because of the LORD JESUS!
When I was at Fed Ex parking lot, I was given an insight (from HIS grace) on the many psalms that David wrote under the insipration of the HOLY SPIRIT of the LORD GOD - that David got not a few of the truths about the LORD GOD from the book of Job.
DATE: May 6, 2018 (Sunday)-- Thank YOU, O LORD GOD for this gracious day of YOUR abundant blessings in CHRIST JESUS. Every spiritual and earthly blessings all because of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In CHRIST JESUS, every believer, chosen by the LORD GOD is free from the great condemnation!
I am now at Job 33 where Elihu finally gets into the conversation.
I am now at Job 38. Here the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY comes to Job's waiting impatience. Elihu had to answer Job to defend ALMIGHTY GOD against Job's claim of GOD's unresponsiveness to his plight! Thank you, O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, for giving me abundant mercies and infinite grace to finish the book of Job. Now I am starting on the Book of Psalms.
DATE: May 11, 2018 (Friday) -- Thank you, O LORD GOD for this new day, this another day of YOUR abundant grace in CHRIST JESUS, blessed SAVIOUR and LORD (HOLY GOD the SON).
The Psalms: THe good LORD GOD has graciously given me another day of life to enjoy HIS many blessings, HIS HOLY WORD. I am now into reading the Psalms.
DATE: May 13, 2018 (Sunday) -- The good LORD GOD has blessed me once again with a new day of HIS abundant grace in CHRIST JESUS.
NOTE: I am watching BGEA on YouTube, and there is a aprt where a lady from India was sharing her desire to proclaim the gospel as Dr. Billy Graham did. And it reminded me of the different people group I meet every day at work (Papa John). At downtown Jersey City, and Hoboken, I deliver pizzas to them - Chinese, Indian, even Europeans. And I was struck with awe when I realized the magnificence of the LORD GOD when HE confounded us with different languages! The LORD GOD always makes everything perfect!
DATE: June 10, 2018 (Sunday) -- I thank the blessed LORD GOD ALMIGHTY for giving me this new day to enjoy (and this because of the LORD JESUS).
By the good LORD's grace in CHRIST JESUS, I have been reading the Psalms. In the Psalms, I learn to go to the LORD (to flee TO the LORD, instead of FROM the LORD) when I get into trouble or get into problems - like at my work there at Fed Ex and Papa John. Like in Psalms 3 where David ran to the LORD GOD when he had the big problem with his son, Absalom. "(A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.) LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me." (Psalms 3:1).
DATE: June 11, 2018 (Monday) -- The good LORD GOD has given me another day of HIS infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS. I feel like David when he said, "But THOU, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head." (Psalms 3:3).
I should do what David did in whatever situation he is in, and that is to pray to the LORD; to go to the LORD GOD; to run to HIM in pleading prayer - "I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and HE heard me out of HIS holy hill. Selah." (Psalms 3:4).
DATE: June 16, 2018 (Saturday) -- Thank YOU, O BLESSED LORD GOD, for all that YOU are, and all that is in CHRIST JESUS.
I was just watching Dr. David Jeremiah on TBN,and I get encouraged in the LORD through his preaching. He is preaching on Ecclesiastes 8.
DATE: June 17, 2018 (Sunday) -- Glory, honour, and praise be to the LORD GOD alone, and this because of the LORD JESUS.
Back to the book of Psalms, which I have been trying to read for a while now. I am back to the 1st chapter. I can't just go through the chapters like in the book of Job. It seems like the book of Psalms have so much in each chapter. And the Psalms wants you to not just read, but to do. I find it helpful to use e-Sword Bible with its study guides to help me along.
DATE: July 2, 2018 (Monday) -- Thanksgiving and praise belong to the LORD GOD, all in CHRIST JESUS, and HIM only.
I was blessed by the sermon of Dr. Bob Sr. which he gave at a conference at Ireland, in SermonAudio web site. But I was disappointed when I tried to listen to his other sermons. I could barely understand what Dr. Bob was saying/preaching.
DATE: July 9, 2018 (Monday) -- The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY belong all the glory, honour, and praise - with thanksgiving, in CHRIST JESUS, LORD and SAVIOUR!
I am presently listening to Greg Laurie preaching of the one person who got the insight of the impending death of the LORD JESUS - namely, Mary! The disciples didn't get the message that the LORD JESUS was giving them all along. Perhaps the disciples didn't really wanted to hear what the LORD was telling them about his immenent death. But Mary did. And she gave the LORD her best gift, the expensive fragrance.
Psalms: Dr. Tony Evans pointed out some insights from the book of Psalms, chapter 23, that I haven't really seen before. He showed how, for most people like us who live from pay check to pay check, the good LORD GOD is our all-sufficiency. "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want." (Psalm 23:1). Other versions says it this way, "YOU, LORD, are my shepherd. I will never be in need." (CEV). And "The LORD is my shepherd. I am never in need." (GW). And "The LORD takes care of me as HIS sheep; I will not be without anything good." (BBE).
DATE: July 16, 2018 (Monday) -- The servant of the MOST HIGH GOD, David, keeps giving the LORD GOD all the glory, honour, and praise because HE deserves all of these and more (and this because of the LORD JESUS). And I try to do the same, with all of the many infinite blessings that HE gives me everyday.
The good LORD GOD is allowing me to read the book of Psalms, and I have read up to chapter 29. Not a few of the Psalms were prophetic, and were speaking of the future MESSIAH, the LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS. Also, I am so blessed with so many great things from the LORD GOD, like Sermon Audio (which I am using everyday listening to Dr. Bob Jones Sr.), Bible Gateway that I am using to get different versions of the HOLY BIBLE, and TBN mobile which I wathc in my iPhone 6 Plus, Family Radio which I listen to on my Ultra Mobile phone, the 2 new BIBLES - The Reformation Study Bible, and the Thomas Nelson Study Bible, the 2 computers, the internet from my nephew... All gifts from the goodness of the LORD GOD's kindness in CHRIST JESUS!
"Give unto the LORD, O you mighty ones, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD glory due HIS name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness." (Psalm 29:1-2 NKJV).
"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid When the wicked came against me to 'eat' up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war my rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in HIS temple." (Psalm 27:1-4 NJKV).
DATE: July 26, 2018 (Thursday) -- I thank the LORD GOD for this new day that HE has given me along with all the abundant blessings, in CHRIST JESUS.
Yours truly is here at Virginia Beach enjoying the 1 week vacation that the good LORD GOD graciously has given.The LORD called David as the man after HIS own heart, and rightly so. Psalm after psalm, I see David always going to the LORD for his every event in his life. When David needs protection, he goes to the LORD for help, etc... "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit is no guile." (Psalm 32:1-2).
DATE: July 29, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thanksgiving, honour, and praise belong only to the LORD GOD, and this because of the LORD JESUS, REDEEMER, and KING.
The LORD GOD knows everything, and still HE showers me (us) with HIS gracious blessings; with HISA gifts of life, breath, nature (air, trees, food, Bible, etc...). I am back here at Jersey City since yesterday, and am blessed by the LORD GOD with hIS pearl of great price, HIS WORD through the LORD JESUS.
David, in his psalms, tells us of the LORD GOD's complete majesty, kingship, and might in HIS soveriegnty over all (even of creation)! "Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of HIM" (Psalm 33:8).
The LORD GOD gives each one of us (each human being) a mind, a heart (soul), and nothing escapes the eye of GOD; HE sees everything, and HE knows everything! "The LORD gave us each a mind, and nothing we do can be hidden from HIM." (Psalm 33:15 CEV); "HE created every person's mind, and HE knows what each one is doing." (Psalm 33:15 ERV); "HE fashioneth their hearts alike; HE considereth all their works." (Psalm 33:15).
The only real and enduring help comes from the LORD GOD: "There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength." (Psalm 33:16-17). "Behold the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear HIM, upon them that hope in HIS mercy; to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: HE is our help and our shield." (Psalm 33:18-20).
DATE: July 30, 2018 (Monday) -- Thank the LORD GOD, and bless HIS holy name! And this in CHRIST JESUS, LORD and SAVIOUR.
"Let YOUR mercy, O LORD, be upon us, just as we hope in YOU." (Psalm 33:24 NKJV).
I am listening to The Voice of the Martyrs with Todd Nettleton having his dad share some helpful testimonies from his experience as a missionaryfor several years, and as also a pastor - a life long relationship. Click here for the link for the upload.
DATE: July 31, 2018 (Tuesday) -- Thank YOU, O LORD GOD, for this day of YOUR abundant grace once again. And this because of the LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS.
David understands and empathizes with the poor and the needy, as did our blessed SAVIOUR JESUS. So David implores the help of the LORD GOD who alone can give us real help! "And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD; it shall rejoice in HIS salvation. All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like YOU, delivering the poor from him who is too strong fro him, yes, the poor and the needy from him who plunders him?"
DATE: August 5, 2018 (Sunday) -- Every day is a gift from the LORD GOD. HE has given me another 24 hour to enjoy (and to use for HIS glory), in CHRIST JESUS.
"I waited patiently for the LORD; and HE inclined to me, and heard my cry. HE also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps." (Psalm 40:1-2). I wonder what it is that David meant by a horrible pit? He was a shepherd, and a warrior, so he must he seen an animal or people fall in a pit, and a horrible one. So when you fall in a deep and horerible pit, it must be almost always really hard to get out of, specially when you're bruised, or maybe injured really bad. But David said that the LORD GOD is more than able to help him, and took him out of that pit! Then David also says that the LORD GOD took him out of a miry clay. Miry which means soggy, muddy, and wet. Slippery. Then ot only is it miry, but it is also in the clay. Like it is almost impossible to get a foothold! It's like David was saying that he (you) is a a hopeless predicament!
David was in that almost impossible situation where there is no way out, so he waited on the LORD, patiently. And the LORD does NOT disappoint!. The LORD GOD inclined HIS ear to him. In another version, it says, "When I was waiting quietly for the LORD, HIS heart was turned to me, and he gave ear to my cry." (Psalm 40:1 BBE). And another version says it this way, "I waited expectantly for the LORD, and he took notice of me and heard my cry." (Psalm 40:1 ISV). GOD is faithful, and HE does what HE promises, that HE will hear our prayers. The LORD is near to them that are of a contrite heart.
DATE: August 8, 2018 (Wednesday) -- Glory, honour, thanksgiving, praise belong to the LORD GOD alone in CHRIST JESUS, SAVIOUR and LORD.
I am, by the LORD GOD's tender mercies and grace, am reading through Psalm 44. And I noticed that in this Psalm, David constantly reminds himself of having the right perspective - that all glory belong to the LORD GOD, from WHOM all blessings flow: "We have heard with our ears, O GOD, our fathers have told us, the deeds YOU did in their days, in days of old: YOU drove out the nations with YOUR hand, but them YOU planted; YOU afflicted the peoples, and cast them out. For they did not gain possesion of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was YOUR right hand, YOUR arm, and the light of YOUR countenance, because YOU favoured them." (Psalm 441-3 NKJV). Just like the way I think and take care of things. I did them with my own ways.But GOD is the one that was giving me all the good things, all the help, all the salvation - just as what Psalm 44 says, they did not gain possession... by their own sword. But it was GOD, HIS right hand, HIS mighty arm, and the light of HIS countenance that saves, that helps, that make things happen!
I had a car problem yesterday, and got worried, but them the LORD GOD delivered me from all of my problems (all because of the LORD JESUS). And the next day, today, the LORD GOD had Justin give me a ride to work. And the LORD GOD had the car run again, plugged the radiator leak.
Dr. Charles Stanley has put in printed form his deep appreciation of the blessed SAVIOUR's love for us who look to HIM for our salvation. This is what the apostle to the Gentiles, the apostle Pauk, has been telling us in his epistles by divine inspiration, of the great, unspeakably immense privileges and favour/blessings, all of them perfect!
DATE: August 13, 2018 (Monday) -- I thank the LORD GOD who alone deserves all glory, honour, and praise in CHRIST JESUS.
By the LORD GOD's grace in the SAVIOUR LORD JESUS I am on Psalm 51. The previous psalm was written by another man of GOD, Asaph. It sounds like Korah and Asaph wrote their psalms after the deportation, after the destruction of Judah and Israel. Also, as an aside, I heard of persecutions of brothera and sisters in the LORD from other countries (Nigeria, Ethiopia, Lebanon). In "The Voice of the Martyrs" news, there was this 8-year old kid who was burned because of the persecution of the believers in Nigeria, click here for more details.
DATE: August 16, 2018 (Thursday) -- I thank the LORD GOD for this new day that HE has given me once again by HIS infinite tender mercies in the LORD JESUS alone.
In the following psalms, the psalmist looks to the LORD GOD for his relief, salvation, forgiveness of his sins; and asks the LORD GOD to protect hin for those who persecutes him, from those who devise mischief on him. The psalms also whos the true nature of the unbelievers, like us before the LORD showed us HIS abundant grace in CHRIST, and we were also known as workers of iniquity (Psalm 53:4).
DATE: August 17, 2018 (Friday) -- Thank YOU once again, O LORD GOD, for this day; for YOUR abundant mercies to me even at work there at Federal Express, even this morning. The good LORD GOD had Taiwann stand up for me when the drivers showed up, telling them that I was there for work every single day (of course it is GOD's grace alone that gives me strength and wisdom, and protection to do the work there). All because of the LORD JESUS.
I am now reading Psalm 57, and here, David implores GOD for HIS help, HIS mercies, while he was being pursued by Saul as a figitive. Samuel anointed David to be king over Israel, and David must have thought that things will go smoothly. But it didn't turn out that way. Instead, he was running for his life. A monkey wrench was thrown in his way. Kind of like my work at Federal Express, and at Papa John.
"Be merciful to me, O GOD, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in YOU; and in the shadow of YOUR wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by." (Psalm 57:1 NJKV).
DATE: August 20, 2018 (Monday) -- GOD is the one true and holy GOD. Glory, honour, Praise and thanksgiving belong to HIM and HIMalone (in CHRIST JESUS).
I was just thinking of the many cries of David in the Psalms for GOD's protection, vengeance, and forgiveness against those who conspire against him, and who were thinking of killing him! And I thought of how it must be hard for those who were assaulted and dehumanized by the wickedness of terrorists. These were prtrayed n David's pleas. David sought the LORD in all things, including publicly humiliating him by his enemies. David keep going to the LORD to avenge him against these wicked people.
DATE: September 2, 2018 (Sunday) --
What a mess! I messed up again. I tried watching the Avenger: Infinity Wars over the internet... And got into junks. Had to exit stage left ASAP!
Anyways, I was just thinking of how faithful Todd Nettleton is in getting his ministry ready very week. He has someone to share their experiences doing the LORD's work in closed environment every week over the radio/internet. So, I am trying to do a similar thing over a live stream apps called Twitch where I go live with my dashboard showing John 3:16, along with the link to Peace With GOD, and Family Radio's Bible Reading audio playing in the background.
DATE: September 3, 2018 (Monday) -- First and foremost, I thank the LORD GOD, creator of heaven and earth, who alone belongs glory and honour in CHRIST JESUS.
I am once again thankful to the good LORD GOD for giving me this day to behold HIS glory, and to cherish HIS holy WORD.
DATE: September 9, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thank the good LORD GOD for this day that HE has given me by HIS infinite grace in the LORD JESUS.
I just went over Psalm 71, and it is so encouraging to me. Here the psalmist shares his desperate plight where he was in a pickle, "Deliver me, O my GOD, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man." (Psalm 71:4). I am using the E-Sword witrh its different versions, and am looking up the verses, particularly verse 1, in other versions, "In THEE, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion." (Psalm 71:1). "I run to YOU, O LORD, for protection. Don't disappoint me." (Psalm 71:1 CEV).
DATE: September 15, 2018 (Saturday) -- The ALMIGHTY LORD GOD has given me some more infinite grace (an extension) this one more day; all because of the LORD JESUS. All of the LORD GOD's abundant grace is in the cross.
The KING of glory left heaven's glory for us - that HE might fulfill the will of the FATHER to be the propitiation for our sins.
I am curently reading the book of Psalms, and I am at the part where the sons of Korah, and Asaph wrote parts of the Psalms (through the divine inspiration of the GOD the HOLY SPIRIT). I noticed that Asaph tells of the deliverance of the Israelites focusing more on the nation as a whole, unlike David, who deals more of his personal encounters and conversations with the LORD GOD. Also, Asaph mentions the pillage of the chosen nation, Israel by theier enemies (which is a reference to the future desolation of Israel when they were about to be exiled?) in Psalm 79.
NOTE: The LORD GOD answers prayers! I was able to share the good news of the LORD JESUS, and the FATHER in heaven in my Twitch apps. There is this one guy, lynx, who was getting upset, and wanted to kick me out of the Twitch stream. But the LORD GOD gave me the chance to tell these guys, as much as they are mocking the LORD, about HIS goodness in CHRIST JESUS.
DATE: September 16, 2018 (Sunday) -- I thank YOU, O LORD GOD, creator of heaven and earth, blessed FATHER in heaven, for YOUR tendermercies towards us (yours truly also), all because of the LORD JESUS. YOU, O LORD GOD gives me daily life, breath, strength so I can get up, have full use of all of my arms and legs (my limbs); and for the daily sustenance, but specially those things that YOU, O LORD GOD do for me at work that I haven't even realized - like Taiwaan, and others many helps.
The LORD GOD FATHER in heaven, is so good to me, and I do not even realize it; HE already answered my prayers in getting help at work when I am gripping about the work load there at Fed Ex. All because of the LORD JESUS.
DATE: September 17, 2018 (Monday) -- The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY has given me this day; HIS infinite grace; and many other blessings in CHRIST JESUS.
The psalms that Asaph wrote under the inspiraion of the HOLY SPIRIT has many reference to the LORD JESUS, as well as the chosen nation, Israel. And the apostle Paul even used them as a reference, namely Psalm 82.
The following psalms that I am reading are from the sons of Korah, 84 and up. I was reminded a couple of days ago of the purifying power of the WORD of the LORD. I am now at Psalm 83, and Asaph mentions the following people group, Edom (v. 6), Ishmaelites, Moab, Hagarenes, Gebal, Ammon, Amalek; and the Philistines, and those who live in Tyre; Assur. Midianites, SIsera, Jabin, Oreb, Zeeb, Zebah, and Zalmuna.
DATE: September 23, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thank YOU, O LORD GOD, for this day of YOUR infinite grace once again only because of the LORD JESUS.HIS precious blood as an atonement for our sins.
I am reading the book of Psalms 94, where there are many promises of GOD's faithfulness are fro those who looks to the LORD GOD by HIG grace in CHRIST: promises like, "The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man (that's us, me) that they are vanity. Blessed is the man whom THOU chasenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of THY law; that THOU mayest give HIM rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked." (Psalm 94:11-13).
Just read Billy Graham Evangelistic Association article on Blackpool, England with Franklin Graham ministering and preaching the gospel there. It is so good to hear the work of the LORD GOD still going on even in the places where the evil one's strongholds are taking hold. The LORD GOD used Franklin Graham to preach the LORD JESUS in the crowd and many gave their lives to the LORD JESUS!
NOTE: Click on the picture above to read the article.
"But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it." (Psalm 94:15); "The decisions of judges will again become fair, and everyone whose motives are decent will pursue justice." (GW); "Righteousness will be restored with justice, and all the pure in heart will follow it." (ISV); "Justice and fairness will go hand in hand, and all who do right will follow along." (CEV); "Justice will return and bring fairness. And those who want to do right will be there to see it." (ERV).
I am using E-Sword apps to get the different versions of the same passage, and they are very helpful. As the faithful character of our righteous GOD, how ever bad this world may seem with its rampant wickedness, GOD is still in control. And HE is righteous and holy, so things will keep coming back to GOD's character. HE is the great creator!
I watch and listen to videos of Billy Graham in his BGEA YouTube web site; and I thought of Elijah ministering to Israel. Elijah was used by the LORD GOD mightily, just as Billy Graham was used by the LORD the same way. The LORD GOD saw fit to use Billy Graham to preach the gospel all around the world, just as Franklin Graham is being used now; bringing many, many souls to the kingdom!
I tend to forget the eternal value of the LORD GOD's HOLY WORD. I read it almost everyday but I forget it's preciousness in my life. It is GOD's HOLY WORD!!!! It is alive and active. "For the WORD of GOD is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12); "GOD's WORD is living and active. It is sharper than any two-edged sword and cuts as deep as where soul and spirit meet, the place where joints and marrow meet. GOD's WORD judges a person's thoughts and intentions." (GW).
1 Kings 18 tells of Elijah's exploits, specially his encounter against the 850 false and wicked prophets of Baal/groves. He singlehandedly destroyed these wicked prophets (by GOD's grace, protection, and power).
DATE: October 4, 2018 (Thursday) -- The LORD GOD has given me, by HIS great tender mercies, another day of HIS infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS.
I was down to $12 today, and some change. Then the LORD GOD gave me some more! HE is well able to supply all of my needs! Like what the LORD GOD had done for Israel when they were about to possess the promised land. The LORD GOD had them go and fight the inhabitants, although they were giants; and GOD will give them the victory, one after another!
In the later chapters of the book of Psalms, (103, 104, etc...), I see th magnificence of my LORD GOD,as told us of David and the Psalmists, as they are inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD. That the LORD GOD is righteous, just, sanctified, apart from sin (ever holy); "For the LORD is good; HIS mercy is everlasting, and HIS truth endures to all generations." (Psalm 100:5 NKJV). NOTE: I was taken aback by the thought of how marvelous our GOD is; HE who created the whole world. HE created everything perfect. From the vast universe, to the minutest cell in our body. They are created complete and complex.
DATE: October 7, 2018 (Sunday) -- I thank the good LORD GOD for this (ne more) day of HIS infinite grace. And this because of the precious life of the blessed LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS.
I am currently reading Psalm 104, and the psalmist sees the handiworks of our great GOD and CREATOR! And this causes the psalmist, as we do too, to give HIM praise, "Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my GOD, THOU art very great; THOU art clothed with honour and majesty." (Psalm 104:1). Then the psalmist continues of GOD's great sovereignty, "YOU cover YOURSELF with light as though it were a robe. YOU stretch out the heavens as though they were curtains." (Psalm 104:2 GW).
DATE: October 8, 2018 (Monday) -- Praise, glory, honour, and infinite tahnksgiving belong only to the LORD GOD, FATHER in heaven - all because of the LORD JESUS, HIS SON, our blessed REDEEMER and GOD (LORD/KING).
The LORD GOD, sovereign ALMIGHTY, CREATOR, loving FATHER, has not left us orphans, to fend for ourselves, but sent us the HOLY SPIRIT to take care of us. The LORD GOD sends us "protectors", "watchmen" to let us know what was happening in our world - and one of them is Hal Lindsey. Here is Hal's latest news (regarding the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh, the prediction of our SAVIOUR and LORD about the end times of increasing natural disasters, and the animosity of the world against HIS chosen people, Israel), click here for more details, and see below:
GOD's HOLY WORD (Psalm 104) declares to us of GOD's divine wisdom and power over all of HIS creation - that HE made us with the sovereign consideration for our good - that all of creation's marvelous display of GOD's glory is for our good (provisions, enjoyment, care and adoration/love for our creator, for all).
DATE: October 14, 2018 (Sunday) -- Praise and thanksgiving belong to the LORD GOD in CHRIST JESUS.
I am trying to recap the ministry that the LORD GOD has allowed me to do, and that is passing out tracts (on Sundays). NOTE: I was just recollecting the events from last year, and was trying to find out just when I started passing out tracts (by GOD's grace in CHRIST JESUS). Well, it was since January 2017 snce I got hurt from the bacl infection while working at ASIG (January 2017). Also, it was Janaury 2018 that I got stuck at Papa John; and Younees help me get unstuck (by GOD;s grace alone). Then at around July 2017, the last of my antibiotics was taken by me. And it was around June 2017 that I got the job at Federal Express. So it must be at about that time that I started passing out tracts.
DATE: October 15, 2018 (Monday) -- The good LORD GOD ALMIGHTY has given me an extra day of grace, and ths in and through the LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS. Glory, honour, and praise belong to the LORD GOD alone!
I am watching BGEA on YouTube, titled "Rediscovering Christmas", see below. This guy was sharing his testimony of surrendering the rest of his life to the LORD. He was looking at the picture of Billy Graham preaching the gospel to a million people.
The guy saw "a sea of souls" receiving the message from Billy Graham. And he was touched in the spirit that he hasn't done as much for the LORD's kingdom - just like me. The LORD GOD used Billy Graham so mightily, reaching those many souls for the LORD JESUS. It reminds me of the stewards who were given talents. Billy Graham was the one given 10 talents, and he invested it and gained 10 more. But one steward was given 1 and he only hid it, and lost it instead! I feel like that stewrad with 1 talent. I am doing so little for the kingdom...
DATE: October 20, 2018 (Saturday) -- To the LORD GOD be the glory, honour, and thanksgiving in the LORD JESUS, and in HIM alone!
"The LORD is my strength and song, and HE has become my salvation." (Psalm 118:14 NKJV). After the psalmist went to the LORD with his cares about his enemies, he comforts himself with the presence of the LORD GOD.
DATE: October 21, 2018 (Sunday) -- I thank the LORD GOD for giving me this one more day of HIS infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS. It is undeserved, but by HIS amazing grace in the LORD JESUS, blessed SAVIOUR.
The good LORD GOD has given me so much, as I look around in my room. I have all these electronic stuffs, clothes, shoes, my own bathroom, a house to go back to after work, and even 2 jobs! All by the LORD JESUS' grace (in the FATHER).
Also, to top it off, the good LORD GOD has given me HIS HOLY WORD, the Holy Bible. I am now at Psalm 119. NOTE: My time for rest and relaxation (most of the time) is today, the LORD's day. And I really haven't put my time in reading GOD's HOLY WORD. And I am thinking that I only have a few (and this by GOD's grace alone in CHRIST) more days to do that (read the Bible). NOTE: The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY gave us here one of HIS obedient servants, that is, Billy Graham, to be an evangelist (proclaimer) of the LORD JESUS, HIS death and resurrection, and ascension into the FATHER, to the face of the earth!
TIME: 10:06PM It is almost midnight, and I still haven't done much Bible reading.Just going over Psalm 119 first few verses.
DATE: October 28, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thank YOU, O LORD GOD, for this one more day of YOUR infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS. Because it is only through HIM that THOU showers me with YOUR blessings, watch care, and never ending compassion and grace.
"ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD." (Psalm 119:1).The LORD considers those who are "undefiled" blessed. Some versions says it or says that hose who are "without sin in their ways" (BBE); "blameless" (WEB); "perfect" (YLT); "who lives right" (CEV); "who live pure lives" (ERV); "whose way is blameless" (ESV); "whose lives have integrity" (GW). They are considered all of these things because they "walk in the law of the LORD".
November 4, 2018 (Sunday) -- The LORD GOD has blessed me again with an HDMI TV set that I got from an acquaintance, Alden. I can now hear RC Sproul in his YouTube "Ligoniers Ministry". This by the goodness of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY in CHRIST JESUS.
"Unless YOUR LAW had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction." (Psalm 119:93 NJKV). The LORD GOD has been blessing me with the truths that stands out in my reading the LORD's WORD. Like the one that I just mentioned.It s GOD's WORD that gives me life, keeps me alive, and helps me from further headaches (afflictions).
DATE: November 12, 2018 (Monday) -- I thank the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY for HIMSELF being the GOD that HE is; HE who is holy, who is infinitely good, who is worhty of all praise, all glory and honour in CHRIST JESUS.
NOTE: I am trying out a new format for this webpage. I was watching Hal Lyndsey Report and got the idea of having a separate page just for a once-a-week news of the Bible reading that I do. I will try and summarize the week's Bible reading/study in this separate page strictly dedicated - like that of Hal Lyndsey. He does his report every Friday. And I am reading/studying Psalm 119-135, but am back tracking to Psalm 119. David experiences GOD's goodness in his life, as he walks in the LORD's goodness, in the blessings of HIS law, and are undefiled in the way, he who walks in the LORD ways. David says that "blessed" are those (more than one) who keep GOD's testimonies (Psalm 119:2). GOD's ways are far more better, purer, holier, kinder, and more merciful. So whoever walks in HIS ways lives a life that have these qualities, "They also do no iniquity. They walk in HIS ways." (Psalm 119:3). Then, David realizes the blessed benefits of following the LORD's ways - for both the one obeying and the ones around him, who also benefit from such a life being blessed by the LORD GOD, "O that my ways were directed to keep THY statutes!" (Psalm 119:5). David knows and realizes that he is a sinner, and he errs, but by the grace of GOD, he obeys/follows GOD's statutes.
NOTE: The 2 people whom the LORD GOD has shown me to be faithful examples of the ministry that the LORD has given them are Hal Lyndsey and Todd Nettleton (of Hal Lyndsey Report and The Voice of the Martyrs respectively). They both put out their hard week's work every Friday.
Then GOD's heart-felt concern for us, HIS creation, is our ultimate good, both to ourselves and to others around us, that's why HE commands us to obey/follow HIS ways, "THOU hast commanded us to keep THY precepts diligently." (Psalm 119:4).Being foolish, or doing foolish things, is our tendency, as David must have realized. Before we were given GOD's grace unto salvation (to be saved), we were dead in trespasses and sin; under the control of the evil one; slave to sin; we were fools bound to hell, and don't even know it! "Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all THY commandments." (Psalm 119:6): and "Then I will not be ashamed; since my eyes will be fixed on all YOUR commands." (ISV): and "If I pay attention to all YOUR commands, Then I will not be put to shame." (GNB): and CEV puts it this way, when we obey GOD's commandments, we are kept from "doing some foolish thing."
DATE: November 26, 2018 (Monday) -- Thank the LORD GOD, creator of heaven and earth, blessed redeemer, for giving me this day again, by HIS tender mercies which is in CHRIST JESUS.
I am nearing the last parts/sections of the book of Psalms. And I am slowly going through them. David in the Psalms 139-144 looks to the LORD GOD for help with his troubles. GOD is his refuge, his strength (Psalm 144). GOD knows all about David (Psalm 139); HE knows all about everyone (even me/us). "O LORD, THOU hast searched me, and known me." (v. 1); "THOU knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, THOU understandest my thought afar off." (v. 2). GOD sees all things, and there is nowhere for us to hide from HIS presence, "Whither shall I go from THY spirit? or whither shall I flee from THY presence? If I ascend up into heaven, THOU art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, THOU art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even thereshall THY hand lead me, and THY right hand shall hld me." (v. 7-10). And some versions says, "If I go east where the sun rises or go live in the west beyond the sea, even there YOU will take my hand and lead me. YOUR strong right hand will protect me." (v.9-10 ERV).
December 2, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thank YOU, O LORD GOD, fro gving me another precious day of YOUR infinite grace in CHRIST JESUS.
By the good LORD's grace, I was able to proceed from the book of Psalms to Proverbs. Also, the good LORD had me use E-Sword to browse through the Bible. I sometimes get stuck in a certain book in the Bible, so the LORD GOD needed to have me (inspire me) to read the other books of both the Old and New Testaments. In the New Testament, Matthew starts his gospel with the blood line of the LORD JESUS from the beginning of time, Adam to when HE was born through Mary (as was promised by the LORD GOD even in the very start of time in Genesis account). Then Luke also wrote of the LORD JESUS's life from the forerunner's birth to the LORD JESUS' birth.
Back to the Old Testament, the book of Proverbs, written under the inspiration of the HOLY GHOST through Solomon, son of David, king of Israel. The people of Israel who were separated unto GOD to be a holy people, separated from the world both from its neighboring wicked people worshipping idols, false gods, and immoral, and deadly; chosen to be the recepient of the heaven blessings of the one true GOD.
I was watching and trying to listen to R.C. Sproul on his daily video. And now I am reading the article on Gideon at Table Talk. The article tells of Gideon, one of the judges of Israel when they just got out of Egypt, travelled through the wilderness for 40 years, and finally conquered the promised land of Canaan, Judges 6-8. Joe Holland says that Gideon isn't an "paragon of piety... exemplar of faith or godly leadership". "Gideon serves to illustrate the point of the book of Judges - GOD, by HIS mercy, uses flawed men to rescue HIS very flawed people." (Ligoniers Ministries, TableTalk, Gideons among Us, November 30, 2018). The thought that came to my mind was and still is, GOD's faithfulness to HIS own. Now that the Israelites were freed from slavery for 400 years ( 4 generations of living in slavery, in Egypt, in Egyptian mindset; probably the only way of living they know - read Egyptian literature, ate Egyptian delicacies, thinking like an Egyptian), and got to the promised land by GOD's eternal power and leading, and abundant grace (in CHRIST JESUS), the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY was still helping them settle in the land by sending them judges to fight against those who come to displace them from the holy land.
DATE: December 9, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thank the good LORD GOD for HIS abundant mercies and grace to usward (specially to me) all because of CHRIST JESUS.
Hello sirs and maams. I am currently watching Billy Graham at YouTube, about his life, and I keep being blessed by his exemplary life.; how the LORD GOD has blessed him so much with him obeying the LORD whole-heartedly!And I am constantly reminded of the parable that the blessed SAVIOUR LORD JESUS about the stewards who were given different talents. I pictured Billy Graham as the opne given 10 talents and invested it and gained 10 more. But the good LORD GOD has been garcious to me in letting me read HIS HOLY WORD. I am now reading Proverbs. Even at the start, Solomon under the inspiration of the HOLY SPIRIT, tells us of divine wisdom. The wisdom that comes from GOD, from heaven, which is given to those who believe in the LORD JESUS; and whom the world does not know, nor have, "The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; to know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity, to give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion." (Proverbs 1:1-4). These are the changes that GOD will do to you in CHRIST JESUS (who is the ultimate wisdom of GOD), namely wisdom, discipline, understanding words of insight, wise behavioiur, righteousness, justice, and upright living (v. 1-3 GW).
DATE: December 23, 2018 (Sunday) -- Thanksgiving belongs to the LORD GOD and the LORD JESUS.
By the grace of my GOD in CHRIST JESUS, I have been reading the book of Proverbs. Here is the revelation of the immense wisdom of the LORD GOD, who is completely embodied in the LORD JESUS. I am also wathcing R.C. Sproul's videos on Reformed Theology on YouTube. And it made me realize my continued need to read the Bible in its entirety.
DATE: December 24, 2018 (Monday) -- I get this feeling oft times; a feeling of depression, even despair which I thank the LORD GOD for because it keeps reminding me of HIS abundant grace to me, to my life. That there are people who do not have the SAVIOUR in their lives and without real hope, "The LORD has made all for HIMSELF, yes, even the wicked for the day of doom." (Proverbs 16:4 NKJV). I am undeservingly thankful to the LORD GOD for HIS infinite tender mercies and grace to those whom HE called to HIMSELF, and this because of the LORD JESUS. In the LORD JESUS, GOD the FATHER saved me.
It has been 5 years since Dad's house was sold and I moved out; and started to read the Bible through in its entirety. And now, I am at Proverbs, by the LORD GOD's grace. By the way, I won a FireTV Stick at the Fed Ex lottery/raffle Saturday unexpectedly. Of course it is GOD who gave me the prize. But I really wasn't expecting it. I was dozing off all the while for being so tired. "The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the LORD." (Proverbs 16:33 NKJV).
DATE: December 25, 2018 (Tuesday) -- I thank the LORD GOD. ALMIGHTY FATHER in heaven, for this precious day that HE has given me once again; with all of HIS many undeserve blessings, all in CHRIST JESUS, blessed SAVIOUR and LORD.
There are so much of the LORD GOD's wisdom in this book alone. And I still have to read through the rest of the Bible. I have little time after work left to read GOD's HOLY WORD, and I am only half way, I think. And there are so many of the LORD's "golden nuggets" in this book alone. And it is Christmas day! At least I get to read some more today, as also yesterday. Learn more of the heavenly FATHER's wisdom, a little of it. The good LORD GOD gving me HIS infinite grace to do what I do; to read HIS HOLY WORD, to listen to Billy Graham videos, and do some cleaning, and also listen to RC Sproul in YouTube.
