GOD OUR STRONG DEFENSE

GOD,OUR STRONG DEFENSE

GOD OUR STRONG DEFENSE

Ephesians 6:16 ” In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one.”

The Scene: A spiritual representation of the fiery dart of Satan– God’s– and our–enemy.  The enemy’s arrow has arched overhead toward its target. However, another speeding arrow, sent by the Lord, intercepts Satan’s arrow, hitting full force and snapping the enemy’s arrow in two. Satan’s arrow then falls harmlessly to the ground.

Ephesians 6:13-14 “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.”

Psalm 46:1 ” God is our refuge and our strength, an ever- present help in trouble.”

Our God watches over us, awaiting our call for help. Many times He forewarns us through His Holy Spirit, to take evasive action to avoid Satan’s snares/traps, whose goal is to destroy us eternally.

Psalm 121: 5 ” The Lord watches over you– the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from harm– he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”

THE MISSING PIECE

THE MISSING PIECE

THE MISSING PIECE

Colossians 1:27 “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

The Scene: A puzzle piece representing Jesus Christ, the missing piece in many peoples’ lives.

Our lives are like a puzzle. Events during our lives help form the pieces that make up the way we are; the way we think and act are all affected by events in our lives, besides our God-given temperaments.

Pieces of our life puzzle are added daily– some people (most) live their lives missing the greatest piece of all, Jesus, as Lord and Savior of their lives; but, with Jesus in their lives, their puzzle is complete. Without the Jesus piece  our lives are incomplete and completely flawed.

Christians who believe in Jesus, the Son of God, are the temple of the Holy Spirit who lives inside of them.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?  If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.”

ALL THINGS WILL PASS AWAY

ALL THINGS WILL PASS AWAY.jpg

ALL THINGS WILL PASS AWAY

Luke 21:33 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”

The Scene: An old, broken down farm building and surrounding fence symbolizing the passage of time and the limited existence of all man made things. Nothing is permanent except God’s Word.

1 Corinthians 13:8 ” Love never fails.  But where there are prophecies they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”

Revelation 21:1-4 ” Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘ Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear  from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’ ”

MY POWER

MY POWER.jpg

MY POWER

1 Chronicles 29:12 ” Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.”

The Scene: Rolling hills, like the Flint Hills of Kansas, USA, with electrically wired  power poles, that resemble crosses, traversing the land.

“No power on earth is possible without help from the God of all, for He is the source of all power in heaven and earth,” quickened the Holy Spirit.

Father God gave His Son all power in heaven and earth when His Son obediently came to earth to live and to suffer death on the cross for the sins of the world.

Hebrews 1:3 “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.”

2 Corinthians 13:4 “For to be sure, he was crucified in weakness, yet he lives by God’s power. Likewise, we are weak in him, yet by God’s power we will live with him to serve you.”

I HAVE COME

 

I HAVE COME

I HAVE COME

John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

The Scene: Ground squirrels eating what God has provided for them–plenteous gifts from their creator.

We, too, are to look for  blessings in our lives, which God has given to us. Those who follow His commands will be blessed mightily. His Word says so.

Hebrews 13:5-6 “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’ ”

Psalm 37:25-29 “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be blessed. Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off.”

MY WORD

MY WORD II.jpg

MY WORD II

Psalm 119:105 ” Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

The Scene: a pathway at dusk. As the walker advances along the path, each solar powered luminary comes on, lighting a little bit more of the path, the narrow way of the Lord.

Psalm 23:3 “He restores my soul.  He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

Proverbs 6:20,22,23 “My son, keep your father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. v.22 When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you. v.23 For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are a way of life. ”

Isaiah 30:21  “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'”

God’s Word leads to righteousness. Righteousness leads to right living. Right living leads to eternal life in heaven with Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Savior.

PEACE II

PEACE II.jpg

PEACE II

Job 9:8 “He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea.”

The Scene: The coming in of the waves lapping along the shoreline and receding back into the sea–a tranquil scene, representing God’s blessings that bring peace to those who love Him and live according to His purpose.

Psalm 29:11 “The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.”

The waves seem gentle and peaceful; however, try and stop them! They are powerful, full of energy; they keep coming and coming, rolling in one wave after another–like God’s blessings that are endless.

Psalm 23:2-3 “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.  He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

See Matthew 8:23-27.
