We are not alone.

Sunset Boat Harbour 3

John: Chapter: 16 verse 31

……..Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.

As Christians we know that God our Father is with us.

 When Jesus went back to Heaven He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us  –  to teach, comfort and also to fellowship with us.

 Where The Holy Spirit is, there also are The Father and The Son.

  Just think how  blessed we are  – we are never alone!

From ‘Drink from the Cup’ book., by J.M.R.Larman.

…..

So if you are feeling lonely today, stop and think for a while, make a cup of coffee, tea or a favourite drink.  Then sit quietly and thank The Lord for all the Blessings that He has allowed and is giving us each day.

Let us think do we have food and shelter, are we blessed with a Husband, Wife and children or good friends or even a special Pet that we can rely on and talk to when we need help or a shoulder to cry on.

Well we may have so many Blessings that is is difficult to count them all and yet………we still feel lonely.

Why oh! why do we feel like that ?……

While we sit quietly let us remember that Jesus must have felt very lonely at times when people did not understand Him.  Sometimes He went off to a special place to pray on His own to His Father in Heaven until He felt better about things…….Jesus who’s Father is in Heaven is also our Father who we can go to at any time of the day or night if we are a Christian.

So let us try not to be lonely today, talk to The Holy Spirit and ask Him to comfort you and guide you out of that feeling of loneliness  into the Joy of The Lord.  Maybe put on some cheerful music – remember we need the Spirit of Praise for the Spirit of Heaviness.  Then the spirit of loneliness will begin to go away and we can get on with our day in a cheerful way.

Maybe have another Cuppa!!!!!!!!!!!! 

* Have a lovely Day Today *

Proverbs:  12 verse 28

In the way of righteousness there is life;

along that path is immortality.

*

Today is another day for us to walk in righteousness,

to walk in true life on our way to immortality,

to eternity.

 Walk in righteousness with Jesus today,

tell Him you love Him and look forward

to the day when we walk in Heaven with Him.

*

Taken from Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

Well what does it mean then to walk in righteousness?

I think it means that we should be careful what we say and do, especially in front of our little children and also in the presence of our grown up family and friends.  Children mainly only know what they are taught, so we do need to try to teach them the right way to live.  That surely would be walking in righteousness for us to show them how.

We all make mistakes and cannot be perfect all the time, however we can say sorry if we have said or done the wrong thing.  Jesus forgives us when we repent and say with are sorry, then of course we can feel free of any guilt that we have said or done the wrong thing and hopefully remember not to do it again.

Yes Children need to be taught to do the right thing – also they need to be taught to say the word sorry to their friends and family, even as we need to do so.

I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Righteousness with The Lord, remember The Holy Spirit will help you if you ask Him – especially if you are struggling with any problems regarding your walk with Jesus.

What are Scoffers ?

Do we know what a Scoffer is?  That is the question????????

The Dictionary says:  to Scoff is to speak about something in a scornfully derisive way.  It does mean also to ridicule someone or something.  Which really is not a good idea as the Bible says we are not to judge.  It is up to The Lord to judge people not us and He says also that as we judge others so we shall be judged.

Be Holy

The above is an ‘Oil Painting” of a Vision that someone had.

*

Leviticus:  Chapter 19 verses 1-2

The LORD said to Moses,

Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them:

  ‘Be holy because –

I, The LORD your God, am Holy.’

*

Today we need to be reminded of this – we need to be holy because the LORD our God is Holy.  How can we do this you may well ask?  Possibly in lots of ways but one thing we can do, is to try to keep ourselves from the evils of this world.

God has called us to be Holy.

That means we are set aside for Him.  Let us try to stay that way for The LORD our God each day.

*

The above is taken from book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by. J.M.R. Larman.

We can only take one day at a time while we live on this earth to try to be Holy.

We are not that clever to be able to do this by ourselves. 

We need the help of The Holy Spirit to help guide us each day.

Really when you think about it this can only happen if we are a Christian, so we best become one and get on with it.

So, you may say that is not very holy to talk like that but it is the truth and in the Bible it says ‘the truth will set you free’  Therefore for us to be holy it is an on going thing.   We don’t like to not be able to do some of the worldly things.  However, we should really try to obey the Ten Commandments that were give to Moses.  If you are not sure what they are they can be found in your Holy Bible……if you do not happen to have one…….then maybe look on Google because there you can find most things.

Today let us hopefully not get really cross with anyone and upset them, let us not swear or steal or commit different kinds of crime.  Let us try to love our neighbour as ourselves (that is one of the Commandments) I am not going to list them here because if you want to be Holy then it is up to you to try, no-one else can do that for you.

Please let us remember to Pray and ask God our Heavenly Father to allow The Holy Spirit to help us as we walk in truth and love with Jesus our Lord.

The Blood of Jesus

Hebrews:  Chapter 10 verse 19

Therefore,

brothers,

since we have confidence

to enter the Most Holy Place

by the blood of Jesus………

*

It’s good to read the next few verses in the  Bible, of the above scripture to know that we have been cleansed by the Blood of Jesus to enter into that Most Holy Place.

For us to pray directly to our Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

So today have confidence to come before God as one of His children to pray for your needs, then give Him the Glory that He is entitled to.

Because there is no-one like our God.

He is Almighty God the one and only true God maker of Heaven and Earth.  Amen.

The above is taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

Just imagine – Jesus shed His blood for us  –  yes – you and me and all our families and friends.

The blood in our veins is the life force of our bodies, without it we would die.  Our blood did not evolve, it was there in the beginning when God our Heavenly Father made us Male and Female.  Likewise all the animals, the birds, the bees, the creepy crawly things.

Our blood did not come from Ape’s or Monkey’s it is special to us as Human beings, Almighty God is the Creator of the Universe and of all things.  He did not mess about evolving things  – He spoke them into being  – that included us and when He did he breathed His Breath into us and made us a Living Soul.  Each one of us is different from each other, none of us have the same Finger Prints but we do have Fingers and Finger Prints – just look at your hands and see.

So each one of us has BLOOD in our bodies the same as Jesus had in His but He shed His Blood for us on the Cross so that we can be forgiven for our sins to become Christians when we acknowledge Him and accept Him into our life and heart which will still be beating not just with the Blood but with the Love of God our Heavenly Father.  We do not have to shed our Blood to become a Christian – how marvellous is that –

Do you know that God our Heavenly Father made us and loves each one of us?

Trustworthy

2 Timothy: Chapter 2 verse 11

Here is a trustworthy saying:

If we died with Him,

we will also live with Him.

*

When we invite Jesus into our lives, we become new creatures in Christ.

Our old selves have died and we become one with Him.

 Therefore praise The Lord we do live with Him today also forever and ever.  Amen.

*

From the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

Well – what do you think?  Is it better to live with Jesus or not to have Him in your life?

This is a decision that only you can make, I can’t make it for you nor can anyone else.  It is a personal matter but one that needs to be taken seriously because if you invite Jesus into your life then I believe you must accept the Holy Bible and all that is written in it.

It does say that a man shall leave his Mother and Father and cleave to his wife and they shall be one.  Then they are to go forth and multiply, only a man and woman can achieve this.  Even the animals need a male and a female to reproduce.  Everything is ordered in the Bible to produce after their own kind, every seed shall bear fruit of the same kind i.e. an Oak Tree seed ( that is an acorn) cannot grow as an apple tree.

There is no reason why two men or two women cannot love one another because we are commanded to Love one another but a marriage cannot take place with two people of the same sex, because they cannot go forth and multiply, so it is an ungodly union to ask to be married as stated in the Holy Bible.

No one can deny that they cannot live together as friends and lovers it is up to their decision to do so.  Maybe there could be a different definition of their union to make it legal as they want to benefit from the government gratuities  that married couples receive.  They also want to be recognized having an official ceremony to declare their oath to one another and be accepted by the world.

So what could the official and legal ceremony be named as they should not be married in a Church because it is against the teaching of the Holy Bible.

A Legal Civil Ceremony could take place to show the world that they are dedicated to each other so that it would be a legal and binding oath to have and to hold until death they do part.   Maybe come under the title of Life Partners which therefore would include which ever sex they are.

Also this would free all Churches to not have to worry about them being accepted and married in the Church of God.

Jesus is Lord

May God Bless you today and always.

Have a lovely Day.

*Do Something Nice today *

1 Corinthians: Chapter 15 verse 58.

Therefore,

my dear brothers,

stand firm.

 Let nothing move you.

 Always give yourselves fully

to the work of The Lord,

because you know

that your labour in The Lord

is not in vain.

***

Our labour in The Lord is definitely not in vain.

He sees all the things that we do for Him.

Everything is recorded of our works.

So today maybe we could do something nice for The Lord Jesus.

***

From  the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

So what then is our labour in The Lord?  I believe it is mostly to keep the Ten Commandments that were given all those years ago to Moses.  Well, some people think that we do not need to read the Old Testament in the Bible but we do need to heed what it says.

If you have never read the Old Testament feel free to give it a go.

You may be surprised and learn something new each day.  You only need to read a bit each day, it’s no good just reading it if you cannot digest what it is saying and just reading for the sake of saying that you have read it.  Take your time and just read a few verses at a time so that  you can understand more fully what those verses really mean.  There is no hurry and just a few minutes at the same time each day will make a lot of difference.

So to do something nice today – would be perhaps to get up and go for a walk and say ‘Hello’ to someone.  Or to visit someone you know who has not been able to go out for a while.  We can take a little gift, perhaps a posy of Flowers, a packet of Biscuits to stay and have a cuppa with them.  If you have made extra cake or cakes, someone may appreciate your visit if you take some to them.

We don’t always have to stay and talk – just deliver your gift to them at the door and say * God Bless * to them.

That I believe – is  also working or doing something for the Lord Jesus.

We can’t all be in the limelight doing great things but I am sure that The Lord acknowledges our efforts to help our families and friends.  

One of the Commands is to Love our Neighbours as ourselves…….a bit difficult sometimes but never the less it is a Commandment that we should think about…..well you may ask who is my neighbour?  Just the normal people we meet each and every day, I think that they are our neighbours in this world.

* May God Bless Us Today

as We Stand Firm

to do the Work of The Lord *

What about The Spirit

Luke: Chapter 4 verses 18-19

“The Spirit of The Lord is on me,

 because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor,

He has sent me to proclaim freedom

for the prisoners

and recovery of sight for the blind,

to release the oppressed,

to proclaim the year of The Lord’s favour”

*

Today we can proclaim the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ.

 Praise Him that He will anoint us to do so.

 Let us ask for His special anointing of The Holy Spirit afresh today.

From the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

*

The above Scripture was spoken by Jesus but we should remember that He has asked us also to tell people about Him.  To proclaim the Gospel of the Lord is to let others know about our Lord Jesus, about God our Heavenly Father and about The Holy Spirit.      We should not  be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ because as it is written in the Holy Bible – the Gospel is to be preached throughout the world before Jesus comes back again.

As Christians we know this but really speaking we rarely talk about the Lord to our friends, family or workmates.  Why are we hesitant  to do this?

Mainly because we do not like being ridiculed but Jesus said that we as Christians will be made to look foolish sometimes when we talk about Him to unbelievers……..But how are they going to know if we do not speak out the truth so that they too came come into Salvation before they leave this earth.

All we have to do is to plant the seed of the faith that we have and tell them what we believe and The Holy Spirit may even convict them of His Presence.

A friend and I talked a long time ago and we agreed with each other that once you have lived with The Holy Spirit in your life you would never want to live without Him.

Jesus sent Him to be our Comforter, our Guide in our everyday living – He is the Spirit of Jesus –  we need no other Spirit to Guide us.  He is with us forever when we invite Jesus into our heart – that is into our life – 

And do you know that our God (Our Father in Heaven) loves us and He never sleeps – He will hear us when we pray day or night where ever we are.  So Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to help us to Pray.

Why not give Jesus a go if you have not already done so.

He is just waiting to hear from you.

 If you have never thought of asking Jesus to be in your life, now is a good time to ask Him if He would like to be part of your life – you may be surprised that He would say yes if you would like to have Him.  You need to mean it though, we cannot be flippant as it is quite an important step to take, because then you would be a Christian and belong to the Kingdom of God.  What an honour that would be.

This is the Day !

This is the Day that The Lord has made

Let us Rejoice and be glad in it.

***

Psalm: 19 verse 1

The heavens declare the Glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

*

Yes LORD the heavens do declare your Glory and in the skies we can see the work of your hands.
Today let us declare the work of God.

The wonders that God has already done in our lives.

Let us say to our friends and neighbours Praise The LORD !

The above is taken from the Book “Drink from the Cup” by J.M.R.Larman.

*

Soar into the Heavenly Realms like an Eagle on wings of Prayer.

The Eagle is an ‘Oil Painting’ by J.M.R.Larman

*

Sometimes it is hard for us to Praise The Lord for the day, when we are overwhelmed by the circumstances that we are sometime living in.  But we need to stop and think even for a moment of the good things that God our Heavenly Father has given to us.  Also for the things that He has done for us.

We can pray and thank Him for maybe our health, our family, our finances, our home, our food, our clothing, our friends.  Even – we can thank Him for the weather, maybe it is too hot or too cold, too windy, too wet whatever it is it is not going to be perfect how we would like it.  However God is in charge of all these things and we need to remember that he allows us to be where we are most times because of our choosing as He has given us free will and will not use us a puppet’s.  

Remember we have a choice to make – shall we or shan’t we do this or that?

 Well as Christians we are to pray – to ask first if it is God’s will what we should do or say, especially in difficult circumstances.

We need to stop and remember 

‘This is the Day that The Lord has made”

So therefore maybe we can at some stage in the day – rejoice and be glad in it (in the day I mean) !

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us today

as we walk with Jesus and His Holy Spirit.

God Bless You.
