God works all things together for good for those who love God and are called to his Purpose: a new heaven and new earth where RIGHTEOUSNESS dwells (2 Peter 3:13; Isaiah 65:17, 66:22). “He himself bore our sins in his body on the cursed tree, that we might DIE to sin and LIVE to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying LIKE sheep, but [in Christ] have now RETURNED to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls” 1 Peter 2:24-25
Turn to Jesus, return to the Father, receive the Holy Spirit. Our Help comes from Above from the Maker of heaven and earth and all life.
“I know the Plans I have for you, says the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not harm you, Plans to give you Hope and a Future” Jeremiah 29:11
Abba Father, we come to you in the powerful Name and Blood of Jesus, asking You to take the wheel, and remove it from those who “blindly lead the blind” in man-made decisions that enrich themselves and impoverish those they were supposed to serve. Father, we ask for those in the dark to come to their senses and see the Light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, the exact image and likeness of You, to repent and receive salvation, redemption, healing, deliverance from evil, delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the beloved Son, where we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. We thank you for the Blood of the Lamb that cleanses us from all sin, unrighteousness, trespasses, and falling short of the glory. We cast our crowns at the feet of Jesus, the Living Holy Righteous One who wears many Crowns, who has been given ALL authority and power in heaven and on earth. In Christ, we know you supply all our needs out of the riches of the glory of Christ Jesus. We pray for Provision and Protection for all those who are in need spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, and relationally. We lift up all who are hurting to You, for only You have the Answers and Solutions for the highest and best for every person, knowing individually and personally every person’s past, present, and future. You are Trustworthy and True, Your Words are Faithful and True, King of kings and Lord of lords. We look to You Father, and ask for your Help. Amen.
“And many will follow their licentiousness, and because of them the Way of Truth is reviled. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words; from of old their condemnation has not been idle, and their destruction has not been asleep. For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of nether gloom to be kept until the judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven other persons, when he brought the flood upon the world of the ungodly; if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction and made them an example to those who were ungodly, and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the licentiousness of the wicked (for by what that righteous man saw and heard as he lived among them, he was vexed in his righteous soul day after day with their lawless deeds) then the Lord KNOWS how to rescue the godly from trial, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge in the lusts of defiling passions and despise the authority of God. Bold and willful, they are not afraid to revile the glorious ones…irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to caught and killed, reviling in matters of which they are ignorant, will be destroyed in the same destruction with them, suffering wrong for the wrongdoing…They have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin. They entice unsteady souls. They have hearts trained in greed. Accursed children! Forsaking the Right Way they have gone astray; they have followed the way of Balaam, who love gain from wrongdoing…They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption; for whatever overcomes a man, to that he is enslaved. For if, after they have escaped the defilements of this world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overpowered, the last state has become worse than the first…The dog returns to his own vomit, and the sow is washed only to wallow in the mire” 2 Peter 2:2-22
Jesus IS the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. Come to Jesus, the Way to the Father. Surrender all to Jesus, submit only to God our Father, yield to be led by the HOLY Spirit of God.
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his Word he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields it fruit in its season, and its leaf does not whither in all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore, the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous, for the Lord knows the Way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish” Psalm 1:1-6
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” Proverbs 14:34
“Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; just as Sodom and Gomor′rah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Yet in like manner these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject the authority of God, and revile the glorious ones. 9 But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, disputed about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.”
But these men revile whatever they do not understand, and by those things that they know by instinct as irrational animals do, they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they walk in the way of Cain, and abandon themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam’s error, and perish in Korah’s rebellion. These are blemishes on your love feasts, as they boldly carouse together, looking after themselves; waterless clouds, carried along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars for whom the nether gloom of darkness has been reserved for ever.
It was of these also that Enoch in the seventh generation from Adam prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with his holy myriads, to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness which they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against God [antichrist spirits].” These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own passions, loud-mouthed boasters, flattering people to gain advantage.
Warnings and Exhortations
But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; they said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is these who set up divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And convince some, who doubt; save some, by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Now to him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you without blemish before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and for ever. Amen.” Jude 3-25
Thy Will be done, Father God, on earth as it is in heaven. Thy Kingdom come, righteousness and peace and joy in the HOLY Spirit, into every heart and mind in Christ Jesus, Abba Father. Give us this day our Daily Bread: the fresh Living Bread and the pure Living Water of life, the life of Christ we take as our own when we belong to Christ, having the Spirit of Christ, no longer of this world but citizens of heaven, members of the Royal Household of God, built upon the prophets and apostles, Jesus Christ himself being the Cornerstone, in whom the WHOLE structure is JOINED TOGETHER and grows into a holy temple IN THE LORD; in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place OF GOD, in the SPIRIT (Ephesians 2:13-22; Matthew 6:10-11; Romans 8:1-29). “But now IN CHRIST JESUS you who were once far off have been brought near IN THE BLOOD of Christ. For he is our Peace, who has made us both one…creating in HIMSELF one new man in place of the two…reconciling us BOTH to God in ONE BODY through the Cross…THROUGH JESUS we both have ACCESS in ONE SPIRIT to the Father” Ephesians 2:13-18
