DECEMBER 11, 2021: SHALOM!!!
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
READING FROM PSALM 5
Psalm 31.11,1Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous. Verse: Blessed are they whose transgressions have been forgiven.
The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Galatians 1:3-10
Brethren, grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father; to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen. I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel - not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel of heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed. Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.
- Paul is showing us the true Gospel: (1) The true Gospel comes from the Lord Himself; (2): Christ gave Himself for our sins not just in His death but in all phases starting from His conception (Incarnation) into the Virgin Mary but lastly in His Ascension into Heaven witnessed by His disciples... (3): Christ delivers us from this present evil age, and to prepare to enter the ages to come...(4): Lastly this deliverance is accomplished according to the Will of God: read (John 5:30; 6:38), and (Matthew 6:10)...
-This is the real Gospel spoken in the Scriptures but somehow the wolves are able to fool the sheep: read and your study your Bibles...
-different in verse 6 means a different a kind, but another in verse 7 means another of the same kind: Paul is applying that the teachings the Galatians are receiving is not a harmless variation of the truth, but way different a "False Gospel": This gospel: (1) is a turning away from not only the truth but the Grace of Christ, which is indeed the truth... (2) it brings trouble to the "FAITHFUL" (3): it will pervert and mislead others from basically a distortion of the truth, mixed with truth and falsehoods, these teachings please the desire of mankind not the desires of our Creator, Lord and Savior, Christ our God!!!
-Paul wasn't be hypothetical when he said we, or an angel ...Angels can and have delivered the gospel to us: Christ's conception: (Luke 1:26-38): The Birth of Christ: (Luke 2:9-15), His Resurrection: (Matthew 28:5-7), and His Ascension: (Acts 1:9-11)...Please note but not all angelic messages are the truth hence the fallen angels who are driven by pure evil, and who are also among the accursed!!!
The steps of a good man are [a]ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand.
The Gospel According to Luke 13:19-29
The Lord said this parable, "The kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches." And again he said, "To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened." He went on his way through towns and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. And some one said to him, "Lord, will those who are saved be few?" And he said to them, "Strive to enter by the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the householder has risen up and shut the door, you will begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, 'Lord, open to us.' He will answer you, 'I do not know where you come from.' Then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.' But he will say, 'I tell you, I do not know where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity!' There you will weep and gnash your teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God and you yourselves thrust out. And men will come from east and west, and from north and south, and sit at table in the kingdom of God."
-Seeking the Kingdom of God is traveling through a narrow gate many seek but few enter, Christ said following Him wasn't an easy life, that is the truth: Shun evil and always do good and never grow tired doing good works either no matter how hard it gets!!!
-Reference to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb as well as the Kingdom being a narrow gate: when the doors close some will not be allowed to enter...
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

I was having a chat with a my Buddy Eric last night: I will quote him: "besides me receiving matching numbers from looking at clocks ect, I sometimes get numbers that are either increasing or decreasing:
-He sent a pick of the time 4:56 and a time of 6:54: Something inside said research and translate those numbers!!! 456: ἀνοικοδομέωanoikodoméō, an-oy-kod-om-eh'-o; from G303 and G3618; to rebuild:—build again. I first translated 6:56 instead 6:54 and I got something that made no sense until said no, it was 6:54 not 6:56: 654: ἀποστρέφωapostréphō, ap-os-tref'-o; from G575 and G4762; to turn away or back (literally or figuratively):—bring again, pervert, turn away (from).
