Fountain of Delight

Jesus is the fountain of delight!

Keep this thought in your heart, mind, and sight.

The fountain that springs up living water.

He is Lord and King above all others.

Jesus is the fountain of delight!

For people, He is the source of wisdom and the heavenly light.

The glory, power, and the revelation of what is and what is to come.

He came, He was crucified, and rose again for all not for some.

Jesus is the fountain of life.

Keep this thought in your heart, mind, and sight.

Jesus is the fountain of delight!

Reading: Psalm 36:9

             “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.”

The Hand of God

The righteous and wise, works are in the hand of God.

So they raise their hand to the Lord, God Most High.

Knowing that their arms and hands were made strong.

By the hands of the Mighty God.

In Him the weak will be made strong.

All power and strength are in His Mighty hands.

In God one will lack nothing.

For God is love. So remember.

The righteous and wise, works are in the hand of God.

Reading: Ecclesiastes 9:1

For I considered all this in my heart, so that I could declare it all: that the righteous and the wise and their works are in the hand of God.

Christlike Love

Christlike love is given through the power of the Holy Spirit. An agape love that endures, follows God’s instruction, and brings His resounding love into this world’s Babylonian mess.

Christlike love serves a higher purpose, saving those from oppression, reconciling God’s people to Him, and demonstrating His heartfelt love. In putting the burning fires of hate, anger, greed, and selfishness out with the life giving water of the Holy Spirit, sent from heaven above. Leaving smoldering, purified ashes, rising in an aroma of sweet smelling smoke, of the Father’s divine reigning power and glory.

Christlike love is compelled to serve and shows no partiality. For the law of love is Jesus’ law and reality. In loving the Father and loving one’s neighbor, no matter of one’s status, language, or race. Christlike love sees what the Father sees and shares the Father’s heart, A heart filled with compassion, forgiveness, mercy and grace.

The Father says gather my children of the promise, Oh gather my children, from every nation and tribe from generation to generation. Oh sing God’s faithful ones rejoice ! rejoice! Set your eyes on above filled with the power of love, in all gentleness and faith, keeping your eyes on Jesus, our precious Savior and King, let your resounding voices sing, exalt the King. Rejoice! rejoice!

Let the doves fly and the spiritual rivers flow, from soul to soul. Heaven on earth, His Kingdom advancement, is the goal. Dance like David with your priestly garments on and make shouts of joy. Joyful shouting from every mountain top in every corner of His world. Understanding that Christlike love heals, comforts, brings deliverance, and strengthens through the power of Holy Spirit, infusing in the believer’s soul.

 Father, I pray that many more of Your people from every nation and tribe, and those who will today and in the future, come in faith in Jesus, be filled with Your Christlike love by the power of the Holy Spirit.  

Reading: Romans 13:8-10

Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”

Turn The Lights On

Turn the lights on Lord, pull up the shades

Many are walking in moral and spiritual darkness

Turn the lights on Lord, pull up the shades

Let the healing rays of the Son, shine through

 The windows of their hearts

Father, give them a brand new start

Turn the lights on, pull the shades up

Open their eyes so they can see

The world is in a crisis

Oh  Holy Spirit blow your wind

Cut through this world of hatred and sin

Arise those who are morally and spiritually dead

Let the illuminating light of Jesus

And the Holy Spirit lift them from their beds

Turn the lights on Lord, pull up the shades

Let the healing rays of the Son, shine through

The world has had enough of their hideous escapades

Reading: John 8:12 (NIV)

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”

God Our Source

God is our source of love faith and hope. He is a stream of water to all that pleases Him. The greatest gift of  God’s people is his loving presence. Those who know him and dwell in His presence have wells of living water flowing from them. Giving life enriching water to those who drink from the streams of their river, the river that is stirred by Jesus hand and flows from their heart. Life giving water where one will never thirst again. The spiritual water of everlasting life the Father gives His children to journey through this land to be like Him and do what’s right. God’s river never runs dry He is the source of love, faith, and hope. He is a stream of water to all that pleases Him. Proverbs 21:1

The Vineyard

Jesus tilled fertile ground for His vineyard

With blood and sweat seeping out His pores

Bought seeds at a redeeming price

Planted and nourished them

With love and spiritual food

Out sprouted a fresh full harvest of fruit

The vineyard He created, attended, and preserved

From the seeds He bought at a redeeming price

Fully sprouted and pruned by His Father the Gardener

Now have hearts and a nature like His

Producing and germinating seeds of His likeness

Through the cultivating power of His Spirit

And the Pruning of His Gardener  

Smiles with love at His many vineyards

Reading:

Isaiah 5:1

I will sing about the one I love, a song about my loved one’s vineyard: The one I love had a vineyard on a very fertile hill.

Go Swimming

Go swimming in the pool that gives life dive in, climb those steps.

And stand on the high board. Take a moment and look up to the Lord.

 Jump three times then dive in. Try not to be too poised and swan dive.

Just dive in, it’s going to be a sensation, the splash of your life.

Come on! Come On! There are 3 Persons waiting for you.

Stop wasting time. There are others waiting in line.

Jump, Jump, Jump, your no chump, I am encouraging you to dive.

Swim in the sea of forgiveness, cleansed of your iniquity, dive in.

The water is refreshing and regenerating, all you need to do.

 Is take a deep breath and dive in. Dive in the water of life.

After you have immersed yourself in His compassionate fervent love.

 Bounce up, wipe the water from your eyes, and watch the ripple effect.

John the Baptist said, “I Baptize with water, the one coming,” and has come.

 He will Baptize you with the Holy Spirit, the living water, come on, dive in.

Reading:  

Zechariah 14:8-9

And in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter. And the Lord will be King over all the earth; in that day, the lord will be the only one and His name the only one.   

                          

 The Doorkeeper and Great Shepherd

Jesus repeats himself in John 10:7-16 (NKJV) to the Pharisees saying  to them, “I am the door of the sheep. All whoever came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved and would go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come, except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly (salvation, healing, nourishment, and plenty more). Jesus goes on to say, I am the Good Shepherd the good Shepherd gives his life for the sheep. But a hireling he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. However, Jesus says, “I am the Good Shepherd and I know my sheep and am known by my own. As the Father knows me even so, I know the Father and I lay down my life for the sheep. Jesus further explain that not just the sheep He has, but other sheep, He has which are not of this fold, them also, He says that He must bring, and they will hear His voice and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

Jesus goes on to say, “My Father loves me because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down and I have power to take it again. This command, I have received from my Father.” Beloveds, Jesus is deeply passionate, sincere, and straight forward of who He is as the Great Shepherd. The Shepherd and Doorkeeper who is fully devoted to those under His care. There is no greater love.

Take Me

Take me deeper than the center of the earth.

Take me higher than the heavens above.

Standing and singing on the clouds, Holy, Holy, Holy.

Who was and is to come.

Take me where I can see you sitting on Your throne.

Spirit to Spirit, crying tears of happiness, fire in my bones.

Jesus, I scream, You are real not a dream.

Inhaling and exhaling each breath you have given me.

In the pleasure of Your love, as I drink Your water of life.

Living by the bread of Your Words.

Listening to the song, I surrender all to You.

All I want is You.

Reading: Revelation 4:8

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is, and is to come.

Shining Lights, Flames of Fire

Be children of the light, shining lights of the world

Be shining lights, flames of fire

Flaming torches passed on from the beholder Jesus

Pass the flaming torch of His shining light

The light that shines through the darkness

The darkness of this complex and chaotic world

Keep passing the flame on from generation to generation  

From nation to nation, uniting as one

Shining lights of love, mercy, and grace

So the world can see His face

Be the light not hidden under a basket

But placed on a stand

Be searing fires of flaming lights

Branded by the Cross of His sacrificial love

Born of the Spirit, water, and blood

Sharing His Spirit, mind, heart and hands

spreading wildly across the lands

Be burning flames spreading through the forest

The forest of discord and despair

 Reaching out crying Jesus saves

He loves you, and He cares

 Jesus is who the Father sent

 If you are a sinner, all you have to do is repent

 And you too can be a source of His flaming light

 Flames of fire, children of the light

Not children lost in darkness and in peril

But burning flames of lights doing want is right

Lights that shine like flaming fire, overcoming the world
