“I know that You can do everything,
And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.
Today’s Epistle Reading: 2 Corinthians 8:1-5
Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous.
Verse: Blessed are they whose transgressions have been forgiven.
2 Corinthians 8:1-5: Models to Imitate
Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: 2 that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality. 3 For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing, 4 imploring us with much urgency [a]that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. 5 And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.
This summary covers from 8:1-9:15 here 2 Corinthians 8:1-5: The subject of this passage is a collection from the Churches in Asia Minor for the Church in Jerusalem...Beyond the material help Jerusalem needs, for Paul this appears to be an important theological matter as well...It (1) relates to the unity of the Jew and Gentile in the Church, (2) underscores the messianic ages as having indeed come in Christ, and (3) demonstrates that the charismatic effects of Pentecost are continuing and maturing in the church...Paul also gave the same instructions to the Corinthians that he gave to the Galatia, it was to contribute systematically to the fund (1Co 16:1-4)...Titus was to make sure they all begun to do so (8:6)...Paul told Macedonians that Corinth was exemplary in giving (9:2), but he has his doubts...So he sends Titus to Corinth to be sure the Corinthians will comply (9:3-5)...Some in Corinth feel pressure, saying that Paul is crafty; he gets his way by being cunning (12:16)...Paul encourages the Corinthians by holding up the generosity of the poorer Macedonians as an example (8:1-5)...The Corinthians actually do contribute to the fund, and Paul is pleased with them (Romans 15:25-28)...
8:5: Progression: They first gave themselves to the Lord (“They offered up themselves”- JohnChr) and then to us, to the Church, to the apostles...Our lives our an offering to the Lord of the Most High, so it will also be an offering to His people as well…
“The Holy Words of the Bible are indeed alive...They feed us daily with the spiritual nourishment we need to sustain us...Yeshua’s own words “man shall not live off bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of YHWH!!!”This is true, start small like a mustard seed and one day you will prosper into a great fruit tree bearing only righteous fruit...We live in days just like Noah, and Noah was a preacher, and a teacher of righteousness, kind of like me today a teacher of righteousness in a world full of pure evil!!!”

Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
Today’s Gospel Reading:
LUKE 10:19-21: יְהוֹשׁוּעַ Yᵉhôwshûwaʻ (Jesus) Rejoices In The Spirit:
19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but [a]rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” 21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.
10:16-21: This passage is read on April 25, the Feast of the Apostle Mark, and on November 8, the Commemoration of Holy Archangels…
10:18: I saw Satan fall describes an event that is taking place before the creation of the world...Five times Satan set his will against the Lord of the Most High, see (Isaiah 14:12-15; and Revelation 12:7-12)...
10:21: Babes: People of simple faith and open hearts, see also (Luke 18:15-17)...
Authority: ἐξουσία exousía, ex-oo-see'-ah; from G1832 (in the sense of ability); privilege, i.e. (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely, magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence:—authority, jurisdiction, liberty, power, right, strength.
“The authority we are all given comes only through the Holy Spirit...Some of it’s great power is often at it’s best when a person is fully engaged in both prayer and fasting...It’s an obedient type of relationship that takes time, and is something that becomes second nature once the Lord has established His Will for us...We need more in the field preaching the true words of repentance and forgiveness of sins, and above all teach anyone who comes to me, to seek first the Kingdom of YHWH and let Him develop you and lead on a level path…

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’
NOTE: Still working on Genesis 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 studies. I have come across some notes from the Book of Enoch, so it may take a little longer, because I want to be on it. I pride myself on taking time with teaching the Words of YHWH, I want time for Him to show me the way and allow His messages to show themselves in a way where the light of truth kicks in!!!
CLOSING: I will admit that I have been struggling with my own inner afflictions lately...We live in a world full of evil, and I nearly got rid of this blog, thinking no one cared about what I had to say...The Lord brought me to this video yesterday and I will share it in a link: Folks this is a powerful message and brought tears to my eyes: The Lord says No you will not quit, you will press on!!!

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,
