Angels Along The Way

A host of angels gather round thee every day. Though surely you do not see all the special things they do for thee, you sense they are there, making your life more free; they are there for Me.

“But to what angel has he ever said, “Sit at my right hand, till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet”? Are they not ministering spirits sent forth to serve, for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation?” Hebrews 1:13-14

The Holy Spirit is your guide, but I call them to your side, to help you along the way–every day.

You may not see them, but they are always there.

“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Hebrews 13:2

Become aware.

Many things that you call chance or happenstance is the work of the Angelic Host.

“For he will give his angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.” Psalms 91:11-12

 

The Child You See

I came as a child to change the world.

An innocent babe would not seem a threat and yet Herod ordered the death of many, for fear of such a thing. You have to believe, to have fear in your heart–yes fear in your heart that a nation would part.

“Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emanuel” (which means, God with us).” When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took his wife, but knew her not until she had borne a son; and he called his name Jesus.” Matthew 1:23-25

“Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there till I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.'” Matthew 2:13

“Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, was in a furious rage, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time which he had ascertained from the wise men.” Matthew 2:16

Father against son and daughter against mother; households on edge, for they disagree that the Savior of the world is Me!

“Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s foes will be those of his own household.” Matthew 10:34-36

I came as a child not many would see.

Shepherds and angels gathered around Me. A babe lying in the night, star studded and bright; one would think of a king–that’s just not right. But I didn’t come to bring fanfare and pomp. I came to bring salvation and stop the work of the devil that would take away your life. To give you a promise, that would begin a new life. Just like Me–born anew, a clean slate

Salvation is True!

I did what I said, I changed the world too.

Every newborn baby has a given opportunity to change the world for better–watch them you’ll see.

No matter the race

No matter the place

Or the look of his face

He can change this world to be a better place.

But his ‘difference’ begins with you. You are the one with power to build, confidence in another, to change what you face; to ‘see’ this life through–it all begins with you.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

“For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we wake or sleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up; just as you are doing.” I Thessalonians 5:9-11

Do you see Me as a child all fresh, born anew? Do you see Me on the cross, suffering at the loss of a world that would not know that I could set them free–that salvation is in Me? Do you ‘see’ you at the cross, suffering in that loss, or have you turned your back on Me?

A promise I give, I’ll come again, you’ll see, but this time there’s no cross–with pomp and flare you’llsee‘.

“But in those days, after the tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then he will send out the angels, and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.” Mark 13:24-27

“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord.” I Thessalonians 4:16-17

This King, no longer a babe.

This King, Eternal God.

Who came to save the lost, will come again–it’s True! Am I coming then for you?

“Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered him, ‘You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Every one who is of the truth hears my voice.'” John 18:37

A baby can change the world.

I did.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end-” Isaiah 9:6-7a

Now let’s begin again with you. When you receive Me as your Savior, you will ‘see’ the world as new. You’ll see it through My eyes–a given opportunity to save many lives.

It’s True.

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which you have in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.”¬†Philippians 2:4-7

And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:8-11

“For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is the belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. But our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power which enables him even to subject all things to himself.” Philippians 3:18-21

“For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me; and this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up at the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that every one who sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:38-40

“Shower, O heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness; let the earth open, that salvation may sprout forth, and let it cause righteousness to spring up also; I the Lord have created it.” Isaiah 45:8

 

 

So BE It!

Are you satisfied to live a mediocre life or do you believe there to be more? So many settle and do not think beyond what they see.

Mary listened and thought beyond what she saw–and then there were three

“And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth. To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.” St. Luke 1:26-36 KJV

But first she listened and accepted what she heard

Never mind that it was beyond her comprehension; she believed what she could not see, because she trusted her God, and she trusted that the messenger was sent by God–a lie He could not tell.

“And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.” St. Luke 1:38 KJV

“Be it unto me as you have spoken,” she responded. You might say…So BE It!

Now, would you say ‘So BE It’ to a mediocre life?

Because you have a decision to make–the choice is up to you. You can read My Word and declare ‘So BE It’ and take what it says to be your own…

or…not believe it, not receive it, and declare to your mediocre life–‘So BE It’ and it will BE!

The decision is up to you and that is the beginning…

So BE It!

“And without faith it is impossible to please him. for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

“By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, took heed and constructed¬† an ark for the saving of his household; by this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith.” Hebrews 11:7

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place which he was to receive as an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was to go.” Hebrews 11:8

“By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.” Hebrews 11:11-12

“By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as if on dry land; but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned.” Hebrews 11:29

“So you see that it is men of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “in you shall all the nations be blessed.” So then those who are men of faith are blessed with Abraham who had faith.” Galatians 3:7-9

“Awake, and strengthen what remains and is on the point of death, for I have not found your works perfect in the sight of my God. Remember then what you received and heard; keep that, and repent. If you will not awake, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you.” Revelation 3:2-3
