Praise God for this amazing sermon!

Be blessed in Jesus Name!
It is written in The Word of God…
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Be educated today in The Name Of Jesus!
God wants to set YOU FREE Today!
The freedom journey is different for everyone and not always so short or simple, but it’s worth it. It’s worth it because through the deliverance and healing/inner healing process we are able to draw closer to Father God, The Lord Jesus Christ and The Precious Holy Spirit! We become more like Jesus through the freedom process! It’s such a wonderful feeling and immeasurable blessing to do this through and WITH GOD! The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob! The greatest Love Story ever told, from Genesis to Revelation!
No matter who you are or where you are, Jesus will meet you right NOW! He loves you sooo much!
God loves us too much to leave us where He finds us though. Surrendering your life to God through His Son Jesus is the best and most important decision you will ever make.
I know personally that pain and trauma can hinder us from understanding and believing God’s Love for us. Praise God for Jesus though! Because of Jesus’ Love and The Power of what He did for you and me on The Cross I have personally tasted this Blessed inner healing of the human soul! You can have this priceless blessing too for yourself because it is for all mankind. I pray this blog post encourages you today.
Know YOU ARE LOVED! Right now! ❤️

🎶Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light🎶
“Blinded by the Light” is a song written and originally recorded by Bruce Springsteen, although it is mostly known by its 1977 #1 hit version recorded by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. Mann’s remake was released in the United Kingdom in August 1976, where it reached No. 6 in the charts. A song that speaks of blindness similar to Paul on the Damascus road. Paul had a powerful testimony, but not everyone knew what to make of his sudden turn around. Could he be trusted? Would it last? Was he safe? Perhaps it was for everybody’s sake he was sent home to sort himself out. Verses in Acts 31-32 are one of a series of summary interludes Luke uses between sections of his story, but one wonders how much the “time of peace” in 31 is the calm after the disturbance of someone who saw the truth about Yeshua/Jesus uncomfortably clearly. New converts often have the strengths of their weaknesses. Uninhibited boldness. A fresh experience. A new story. It is a pity if growth in sensitivity and tact and a growing awareness of the complexities in life and faith dull clear testimony. It does not have to be. Paul was not an instantly mature Believer, never mind a leader. He knew a lot, but had to discover what it meant to be a disciple. Over a long period he learnt how to be more relevant and less abrasive, when to speak and when to keep quiet and what to say, but if he grew in wisdom he did not fail in courage and neither need we. A reckless witness is careless of the risks to others, and also uncaring about effectiveness. A living gracious witness can speaking for Yeshua/Jesus and be both bold and sensitive and which knows what can be done and what risks to run. Again we need grace to grow as Paul did, and wisdom to handle Paul’s God which He is sending to stir up our sleepy fellowships. Thank YeHoVaH/God for people like Barnabas. Pray for those who may be brash young disciples today, but who will be our “church” and mission leaders tomorrow. We need to be open to what He wants us to do. We are often surprised how YeHoVaH/God chooses to work. Just like those in Acts 9:21. God is in the business of calling the people we least expect. No one more fits the bill than Paul. YeHoVaH/God had to get his attention. Yeshua/Jesus the light of the world turned up in a big way and Paul was “Blinded by the Light” Amen?
I had a good friend message me and ask why he didn’t feel the “Presence of the Lord” in his life. He said that he had recently been saved and didn’t feel God’s presence in His life.
Do you know why this man doesn’t feel the “Presence of the Lord” in His life? It’s because he isn’t abiding in the Scriptures. Yeshua already dwells in him. Romans 8:9, “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” John 5:39, “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me.” Most believers don’t spend enough time meditating therein “day and night” as David did in Psalm 1:2. The Bible says that King David thought about the Scriptures in the daytime and nighttime. Instead of watching tv before you go to sleep, try reading a passage of Scripture and thinking about what it means. You’ll be surprised how YeHoVaH works in your heart and mind with the Scriptures, showing you truths that you had never thought of before. YeHoVaH wants to get it to us, but the problem is on the receiving end. The question today is: Do you love the truth? Do you want the truths that Our Father wants to teach you? I do, I do, I do! Father please teach my Thy Word! The problem with a lot of believers today is that they have been inoculated from the truth of God’s Word. They listen to Christian radio, read Christian books, view Christian magazines, go to Christian seminars, and don’t have any time left to spend in the Word of YeHoVaH. But Yeshua told us in John 5:39 to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES! Of course you’re not going to feel “The Presence of the Lord” if you’re spending all your time reading and listening to everything except the Word. If you snack all day on junk food, you’re not going to feel nourished either. You need the milk and meat of the Word to grow thereby. 1st Peter 2:2, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.” Facebook friends, if you want to know His presence, then abide in the Word of Him, even as He abides in you, and have faith in YeHoVaH through the trials and tribulations that will come upon you. John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Your “Blind Faith” in YeHoVaH will never be sweeter than when you have every reason in the world to quit, give up and turn back, but you hang in there for YeHoVaH proving that your faith is genuine. Amen? https://youtu.be/HIcESt9eYRk
What does the Bible say?
(All in The King James Version)
4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
5 For every man shall bear his own burden.
For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ?
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
136 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.
But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
This poem was written by a dear Brother in Christ concerning his awakening in God.
THE BLIND MAN, by Joseph Arthurs
My eyes have been shielded
Too many years by now
My heart of rock not yielded
Remaining made of stone.
Why have I ignored this
Letting life pass wearily along
Did I not see the answer
Shining clearly all day long
My arrogance and pride misled me
Telling me I was doing fine
I just decided to let things be
Submitting my heart each time
Til the day He nudged me
Riding on my high horse
My eyes blinked open slowly
As I saw I was at a loss
Now let me say to you clearly
I hope those days are past
It was His grace shocked me
To learn,to pray..but fast
May God now maintain me
Keeping me on His path
With Jesus’ love redeeming
The Spirit too has my back.
