The people who walked in darkness
Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.

Matins Gospel Reading: Matthew 28:16-20:
The Great Commission: 16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go [a]therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” [b]Amen.
28:18: All authority has been given to Me: Christ declares that the authority that was His by nature in His divinity is now also possessed by His glorified human nature...this human nature has now trampled the final enemy...death (1 Co 15:20-28)...
28:19: This Great Commission: Our Lord’s final commandment given on earth...is to be lived out in the Church until He returns again...Making disciples cannot be done in the strength of man, but only in the power of YHWH...The Power of Resurrection is not only for Yeshua (Jesus) Himself, but is given to all believers for life and mission…
28:20: Christ Himself is present in all of us who follow and worship Him, and is also in the Church always, both personally and in the Holy Spirit, for neither can be separated from the other...To the end of the age does not by any means imply that we will be separated from Him at the end of the world...He is with us now, and forever, and unto the ages of ages...Amen!!!
“We have been given the authority by the Lord Himself to shun evil and do good...Cast out the evil that dwells in the hidden places, callout the evil that hides it’s cunning self in the darkness...Don’t be afraid of the dark we are children of light, darkness can’t overcome the light...If you are truly in Christ than you understand my messages, if you aren’t fully in Christ maybe that’s why you are here? The Lord does great things and His love is steadfast and will endure forever, and I will endure as long as I need to, because my faith is stubborn for Him!!!”

Today’s Epistle Reading: Ephesians 2:4-10
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
2:4-7: The King of the other Kingdom is uncreated, God the Father (v. 4)...His realm is the heavenly places (v. 6)...He rules by mercy and love (v. 4)...The beginning of His rule is redemption to eternal life (v. 5)...The desires of His subjects are thankfulness and glorifying the Lord...Their deeds are righteous, as is proper to those who reign with Christ...The result of His rule is exceeding riches and kindness (v. 7), and hence eternal life…
2:8-10: How can one get from one kingdom to the other (vv. 1-7)? By the unity of grace, faith, and works (v. 9)...Not that these are equal, for grace is uncreated and infinite, whereas our faith is limited and can grow; good works flow out of authentic faith...Works cannot earn us this great treasure...it is a pure gift...but those who receive this gift go good...we are not saved by good works, but for good works through Christ Himself (v.10)...
“Salvation is the pure gift that was given to us by our Lord and Savior...Redemption is a choice, meaning to pick up your cross and follow Him, isn’t for the ones who want to be half and half out...Even in Scripture The Lord says He doesn’t want passive followers, and He wants His followers to be salt of the earth...Yes, we are saved by grace through faith because it’s a gift, but this gift needs to be chosen...Once this gift is unwrapped the transformation begins but it’s a gradual process...Our works alone do not save us, Yeshua (Jesus) is our Savior, and it’s through Him we are called to do good works!!!”

Today’s Gospel Reading: Luke 18:18-27
At that time, a ruler came to Jesus and asked him, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.' " And he said, "All these I have observed from my youth." And when Jesus heard it, he said to him, "One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." But when he heard this he became sad, for he was very rich. Jesus looking at him said, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?" But he said, "What is impossible with men is possible with God."

NOTE: The notes on this last passage are extremely long to save time, I referenced the verses so they can be read on an individual level. I will work on these notes and post them in my forum section of my page later today or possibly tomorrow…Shalom!!!
“To enter the Kingdom of Heaven we must seek it first above anything else...I look around and see the world I live in is nothing more than one giant pile of lies and deception...We live in the days of evil just like Noah, and it’s only going to get worse, repent now...Take up your cross and live a life of repentance, shunning evil and doing nothing but compete good...Do it with hope, faith, and above all with love...Never surrender your convictions and remember we find strength in our spiritual wars, surviving these attacks only make us stronger and wiser in the Lord...May the Lord bless you all and bring you all peace!!!

NOTE: Here is a video from another brother in Christ I wanted to share...It seems the New Covid19 variant is just an old B-rated movie, and I will shun evil and do good: if you still think this about a virus you have been fooled!!! Shalom!!! Video Link: https://youtu.be/tEgvHUHHQ_c
The Father is my hope. The Son is my refuge. The Holy Spirit is my protection. Holy Trinity, glory to You!
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen!
May YAHWEH Bless you all,
