The Age of Grace

Age of Grace

In this age of grace, sin is separating mankind from God (Isaiah 59:2).  God is the absolute wisdom and power mankind’s dependence is on Him (Romans 11:34-36). The spiritual relationship of King Solomon with God brought on positive and negative consequences due to his behavior and actions. Like King Solomon all of mankind are subject to judgement according to their actions toward God and people.

The laws of God are mankind’s guidance toward living upright and healthy lifestyles that are devoted to Him. Jesus invites you into an intimate relationship with Him. Jesus is our living Grace. May we live as citizens of God’s grace.

The Age of Grace

Mankind you are living in the age of grace.

You are living in God’s loving and forgiving hands.

 If you are in a lifestyle of sin.

Recognize you cannot win.

If you are not living in His image.

It is against your advantage.

In this age of grace.

The righteous must live by faith. 

In response to past judgement and future glory.

Listen to the Son’s message of salvation and judgement.

Walk in grace as you journey on this earth.

For God’s Words tells the whole unified story.

Reading:

Romans 3:20-24

Because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. But now apart  from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus (NASB). 

Oh! Those Eyes

Have you ever been hypnotized? The hypnotist will command you to look into his or her eyes. Have you ever been mesmerized, there is someone or something that has captured your eyes. Why is it recommended when in a job interview to keep good eye contact? I know, whenever I am engaging in a deep conversation with someone, I want them to look me in the eyes. Oh yeah , do you remember little red riding hood, when she told the wolf “What big eyes you have grandmother” and the wolf replies, “Better to see you with, my dear.” It is also said that a glass of red wine can stimulate brilliance and put a sparkle in the eyes. Hey, maybe that is why they say that a glass of red wine is good for romance! Whoops! I am drifting away from getting to the point of this piece. Bring me back Lord to the importance of eyes.

The eyes is the window to your soul.

They are where things are hidden and not told.

Look into their eyes.

The eyes are the window of their souls.

Will they love you or despise you.  

What is in their heart.

Look into their eyes the window of their souls .

That is where it starts.

 The eyes, the windows of truth.

Are the eyes open or closed. May not mean nothing to some.

The eyes, the length of their gaze, are silhouettes of what to come.

Reading:

“The eye is the lamp of the body; So then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” (Matthew 6:22-23,NASB).

Blood,Water, and Wood

Blood, water, wood Jesus did it for the greater good.

The blood so rich and pure, the suffering He endured.

The blood that of the Lamb purifier of all sin.

His mission to save the lost like me.

Blood, water, wood Jesus did it for the greater good.

Sweat and blood seeping from His skin.

There was a man who saw it, so the truth could be told.

Jesus hung his head and cried,”It is finished.”

Then, a soldier pierced Him in His side.

Blood, water, wood Jesus did it for the greater good.

Self-sacrificial love, in achieving the Father’s mission.

Water the Spirit, the four rivers rapidly raging.

Water the Spirit, streams flowing, winds blowing.

Water the Spirit, the promise, the guide of all truth.

Blood, water, wood Jesus did it for the greater good.

Wood the natural man, corruptible and changeable.

Wood the natural man, transformable by the Carpenter.

Blood, water, wood, Jesus Spirit, all for the greater good.

Readings :

Blood and water, testifies the Holy Spirit, because the Spirit is truth, the three are in agreement (1 John 5:6-7), and an alter was built of acacia wood, for-shadowing Jesus sacrifice; He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! (Exodus 27:1;Hebrews 9:12-14).

Whose Wisdom

To know wisdom, whose wisdom, surely it is not the wisdom of the world, surely it is not the wisdom of man. Whose wisdom then? What is there to know about wisdom? Wisdom from above, is the wisdom of love from the Father for His sons and daughters. Wisdom that captures the lens of the conscious mind, wisdom from the heart that explores the inner most being of a child of God. Wisdom that resist moral pitfalls. Wisdom that strengthens and encourages. Wisdom that follows the God given patterns of the Father.

Wisdom is greater than silver and gold (Proverbs 3:13-14). Wisdom that seeks to lead others justly and with equity. Wisdom that reveres God, His Lordship, Words, and commands (Psalm 111:10; Ecclesiastes 12:13). Wisdom that loves knowledge and correction, that does not trust in self but in God. Whose wisdom? The wisdom from above. The wisdom of God’s love putting aside self-enrichment in oppressing others and stealing. Whose wisdom, surely it is not the wisdom of the world, surely it is not the wisdom of man. So whose wisdom? King Solomon was dreaming and asked God for wisdom to lead and judge His people with an understanding heart and the discernment of good and evil, in which God granted (1Kings 3:5-15; 1Kings 4:29). However, Solomon became disobedient and greedy not recognizing that his authority in the Kingdom of God was for service not for self-gratification (1 Kings 11:1-13;12:7).

Father praying for leaders who are filled with Your Spirit, who are just, equitable, and judge fairly. Leaders who are not seeking self-gratification but sincerely concerned and caring for the needs of Your people. Father may Your kingdom come and Your will be done as it is in heaven. Amen

If anyone needs wisdom He can ask the Father who will give it generously (James 1:5).

Peace, love, and joy,

Rachel Flemming

FIRE

” For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.”

F lames of love and protection.

I n times of spiritual battles.

R esting in His comforting embrace.

E ver leading and teaching.

Thank you Father for being my wall of fire.

Watch Out For That “Leviathan!”

Watch out for that “Leviathan,” that dragon. He is around 25 to 30 feet tall, with eyes of piercing rays, a mouth of streaming flames, with sparks of shooting fire (see Job 41, NIV), spitting out words of hatred, injustice, and unrighteousness. The Leviathan is a dragon who is autocratic, selfish, and with thick hard skin who hovers over those they lead or is to care for. God despises the dragons, for they seek to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10) His people, His nation, and His world.
Listen, He says, as I speak, the thunder will clash, smoke will rise, in that great day of the Lord. Listen, all you who are haughty and not wise. Look up to the sky, what I say is true, My Son is returning to you. Read my Words, they say what He will do. Repent is the word of the hour, for your life will be like the withering flower.

The water, the blood, and Spirit (1John 5:8 ) of Grace He has left in the land. When He comes back, that sword, He will be carrying in His hand will slay all dragons in the land. “Vengeance is mine,” says the Lord (Deuteronomy 32:35; Romans 12:19).
Listen, My faithful ones, my elect, rise as the children of the light, cling to Me, like a baby clinging to a mother’s breast, meditate on my words both day and night, flee from the dragon’s snare, stand firm till the end comes, and be filled with the Spirit of love, peace, joy, and power; For you will be saved on that great and terrible day of the Lord, whatever the day or the hour. Keep watch and be prepared.
Jesus said, He would be coming, and His Word is true. Remember, those who are Mine, love others as I have loved you. Don’t be a dragon spitting out actions and words of hatred, injustice, and unrighteousness; Be humble not proud, and you will meet me in the clouds.

Listen carefully to the thunder of God’s voice as it rolls from his mouth. It rolls across the heavens, and his lightning flashes in every direction. Then comes the roaring of the thunder— the tremendous voice of his majesty. He does not restrain it when he speaks(Job 37: 2-4, NLT).

There is No Thirst or Hunger

Jesus is the “Bread of Life” and the water that satisfy our thirst; if you are thirsty, come, He is inviting you to drink from Him. Come, let’s break bread.

Have lunch with Jesus, sit with Him before the throne of the Father, the river is flowing and the trees are bearing fruit.

Come let us break bread, drink His satisfying sparkling water, and eat His full course meal, and watch the crystal, clear water flow.

The trees on both sides of the river, swaying and dancing happily from the gusty wind.

This will be the moment, like no other moment. For He brings healing for the nations.

When no one shall ever know!

But be certain there will be no pain, no sorrow, no wickedness nor sin.

“It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ Live God’s word by His Holy Spirit power, and you will enjoy life under the Son.
Life Under the Son there is no hunger or thirst: For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. Psalm 107:9

Father our longing souls need Your spiritual food and drink, fill us with your goodness, satisfy our souls.

The Beauty of God

One thing I have 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 27:4

God Is

God is Love, God is Beauty, God is Truth.

God has placed us here under His roof.
To bear living proof.
That He lives.

God is Love, God is Beauty, God is Truth.

Yes, he has touched my soul.
Yes, he has touched your soul.
We have been blessed.

God is Love, God is Beauty, God is Truth.

God is Love”
1 John 4:8

The Judge is Coming

Our Judge is coming, His appearance, will bring joy to some but to others it will be nothing to laugh about.

In the 60’s and 70’s there was a show called “Laugh In” many of us baby boomers used to watch it and thought the skit was hilarious. A judge portrayed by, Sammy Davis Jr., a back in the day, comedian, would dress like a judge with a gavel in his hand, ready to present judgement on the accused. The people in the courtroom would say, “ Here Comes Da Judge.”

Well beloveds, the Judge is coming, with all power and great glory (Matthew 24:30). When He appears, it will not be a laughing matter. Jesus is coming and He will not be portraying a judge, He is the Judge, and it won’t be a laughing matter to sinners, the unfaithful and the disobedient. However, God’s faithful remnant, His elect can rejoice and be glad (v 31).

I am shouting “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand.” Be reconciled to God, our Father. Jesus, the Judge, is coming, this is a serious matter. However, it is quite obvious that humanity thinks, Jesus is not returning, some spiritual leaders are not teaching the true gospel and the Holy Spirit is being quenched. Many Christians are living a life built on false teachings, therefore, hatred, violence, immorality, selfishness, and greed, has seeped in and is spreading into the hearts and souls of mankind.

Christians are you paying careful attention, on how you are living? Scripture tells us “not to live, as unwise people but as wise making the most of the time, because the days are evil. So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is (see Ephesians 5:15-17). Take time to search the scriptures for God’s will.

My beloved brothers and sisters, according to Romans 8:12-14, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. It is my hope, that you understand, “if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”
I urge you beloveds to seek the truth from God’s written word and pay attention to what you are hearing and listening to. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit, follow His lead in the footsteps of our true leader, the head of the church, Jesus Christ!

Hear yea, hear yea, the trumpet sounds. The Judge, is coming! Jesus is coming!

Father, I pray that Your people will understand the seriousness of living wisely according to Your word, under the influence of the Holy Spirit and follow in the footsteps of Jesus the lover of our souls. Amen.
