Hello 2014!

One year ago today I posted my very first message on Wordscroll.

From that very first post, birthed out of obedience to God’s call on my heart, Wordscroll and all its wonderful readers has been an incredible blessing to me. So far 52 countries have been represented by visitors to this blog. And now I realize that, by the wonders of technology, I am enabled to ‘go ye into all the world and preach the gospel’. What an incredible and exciting time we live in. A time we can’t afford to waste!

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

Every Christian believer has a calling on their heart from the Lord and the gifting to fulfill that call.

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them–” Romans 12:6a

I urge one and all to step out in faith to answer God’s prompting. Do you sense the urgency in the air? There is so much to be done and all are needed to do their part. If you simply take the first step, you will see the next and the Lord will meet your every need–just take that step.

“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might–” Ephesians 1:16-19

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so thankful, and I look forward to another great year of service to you, and to our King!

 

My Treasure Trove

(Often the enemies of God are those in His own household, who refuse to know the Truth. They have been entrusted with the gospel to grow and yet they refuse to know.)

My Word rests in their house as gold, and yet it remains as a heap–not dusted, not noticed, not read.

Know this–you will remain in stagnation unless you are fed. You have no need to be spoon-fed, for you have the Word at hand; put it in your heart. It is life to those who find it and health to all their flesh.

Will you start?

Will you rise up off the couch of despair and declare My Word to be true for you?

It is sufficient to free you from every disease. It fed the multitudes; brings many to their knees. For it is the gospel that cleanses, reveals and restores. Never changing, it remains the same. but it is ever changing those who partake of the Word that saves them–the Word I gave them; that heap of gold–My Treasure Trove!

“Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.” James 1:17-18

My Life–written for you.

Does “enemies of God” sound harsh to you? Yes, maybe so, for it was My enemies that nailed Me to the Cross–sin that drives the lost. Your sin that I took upon Me, that I might call you friend.

And I do,

love you.

It is love that causes Me to correct. Love that calls you to connect. Love that beckons you to see, that I have placed a banquet before thee.

“And he called to him the multitude with his disciples, and said to them, ‘If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? For what can a man give in return for his life? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.'” Mark 8:34-38

Come, eat it in the presence of your enemies–for that banquet is Me.

Eat it and LIVE!

“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows.” Psalms 23:5

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who observes his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer that forgets but a doer that acts, he shall be blessed in his doing.” James 1:22-25

“Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning, and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the marriage feast, so that they may open to him at once when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them.” Luke 12:35-37

“For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” I Peter 4:17
