Standing on the Truth!
From the Elder's Wife, Old Church of God of the New Covenant, 1Cor. 1:2- Gal. 1:13- Eph. 2:15-21- Jer. 31:31- Heb. 8:1-13. Women can be in the service of God and a part of His work here on earth! Until next time The Elders Wife Rosa, standing in the Gap for Him today: As women we have to always be on guard to stay with the Lord, as the Elders wife He has always pointed to Jesus as My first responsibility as a saved person, but has shown me that any person can fall into sin. Standing on the truth lets us all return to the Lord when we may fall and anyone can fall, beware of any man or woman who is telling you they can’t sin. We were given great work here as women in the service of God. Titus 2:3-5 teaches that older women are to be good teachers and models for younger women. We can’t be what we will not receive or do. Mary, the mother of our Lord, was not perfect or sinless, but she was a good example of sound parenting for moms and dads alike. Consider: now she would not have let anyone worship Her, but would have pointed to God as the one who is to be worshiped. She was a woman who would not have worshiped a man, but was very much in love with the man God gave Her as a husband. 1. HER CHARACTER FOR US TO SEE IS VERY CLEAR Highly Favored, or "Full of Grace" - She was a saved woman. Luke 1:26-28 2. HER COURAGE 1:30-38 She considered but did accept what the angel had to say, realizing she would be falsely accused of immorality, she did what God asked her to do. 3. HER CONTEMPLATION Luke 2:19, 51 Mary meditated on what was said about and by her son. She attempted to understand. Understanding is something all our children need it. 4. HER CONFIDENCE John 2:1-11 Mary believed in her son. See Vs. 5 5. HER COMMITMENT John 19:25 Mary stayed committed to her son right up to the cross! No matter where we go or what we do God is always present. Psalm 139:7 we can be strong and be women as well. There are some things we should get clear, in our minds and hearts. GOD IS PRESENT WHEN WE ARE REJECTED – Hagar – Genesis 16, 21:1-20 GOD IS PRESENT WHEN WE ARE REBELLING – Balaam – Numbers 22-24 GOD IS PRESENT WHEN WE ARE RUNNING – Jonah – Jonah 1-2 GOD IS PRESENT WHEN WE ARE REVEALING – Daniel 5 There is power in the Blood, for the women as well as the men! OUR God is God to us all! GOD IS THE SOURCE OF POWER for the saved person, so Go to Him daily in Payer, and there is power in the blood of Jesus as our savior. Matthew 6:13 - And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. And we say Amen. JESUS HAS THE POWER TO FORGIVE SIN not men! And God requires us all to be merciful. It is not just the women who should give, but we should have the courage to first show the Lord in what we do but also ask our husbands to do the same. So all of us can live under what God has for us all! Matthew 9:6 - But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy, ) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. Look at this list of things that we have as Christians because we are in Christ! An we women are the in that WE” REDEMPTION IN CHRIST Romans 3:24 - Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: So when you are down remember to take it to the Lord in Prayer. There is FREEDOM IN CHRIST Romans 8:1-4 - There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. There is SECURITY IN CHRIST Romans 8:38-39 - For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Make it this way before Him, saying One of Your Lord is coming before You The one who is BELONGING IN CHRIST Romans 12:5 - So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Galatians 3:26 - For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Can we start today praising Him for what He has done for us? Lord You set Me aside, SANCTIFICATION IN CHRIST 1 Corinthians 1:2 - because we do see ourselves just like those here, Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: The Saved have a COMPLETENESS IN CHRIST and can be forgiving to others. 1 Corinthians 1:30 - But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. Tell Him You were dead before your LIFE IN CHRIST 1 Corinthians 15:22 - For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Just tell Him You want the LOVE IN CHRIST to be returned to You 1 Corinthians 16:24 - My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen. We can only Have VICTORY IN CHRIST sometimes others can cause brokenness. 2 Corinthians 2:14 - Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place. You are to have NEWNESS IN CHRIST and in that the brokenness is removed for us all. 2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Walk new because it is in Him that we become all New. God has already said it. Love has already come for us all we have been and in our RECONCILIATION IN CHRIST 2 Corinthians 5:19 - To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. IN CHRIST Jesus we stand. 2 Corinthians 11:3 - But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. Mankind will never have the UNITY IN CHRIST without Jesus as the only way to God as we are told in John 3:16 we all become one in Him, and through Him. Galatians 3:28 - There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. In Christ Jesus we are looked upon and just a saved human our Gender has nothing to do with it, even so we are still women, walking before Him in the flesh. BLESSINGS IN CHRIST has come to us all but if He has said it it should be good enough for us. Ephesians 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: There is a PURPOSE IN CHRIST for us! Ephesians 2:10 - For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. There is JOY IN CHRIST for all of us! Philippians 3:3 - For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. As long as we are human we are to have FAITH, and stay IN CHRIST, Colossians 1:3-4 - We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, Whoever preaches or teaches must preach Jesus and not themselves. Colossians 1:28 - Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: All the way until DEATH we stay in CHRIST! 1 Thessalonians 4:16 - For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: GRACE IN CHRIST It that Mercy we all live by. 2 Timothy 2:1 - Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. SALVATION IN CHRIST and Him as the only way! 2 Timothy 2:10 - Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. GODLINESS IN CHRIST 2 Timothy 3:12 - Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. Do you want a little peace? PEACE IN CHRIST 1 Peter 5:14 - Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen. Heaven wants us all to! Live this in our life, saying this to the world around us and to God in Heaven ALL THAT I HAVE OF VALUE IS IN CHRIST as My savior.! And remember this all we Have He has given us and we should be quick to give, and say to I have nothing that i did not receive from You Lord and i have nothing you can have in Your work here below, when we stand like this we stand in the power of God. ERROR COMES WHEN WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE SCRIPTURE OR THE POWER OF GOD Matthew 22:29 - Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. THIS IS THE TRUE JESUS Matthew 24:30 - And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. JESUS’ ENEMIES WILL SEE HIS POWER So don't be afraid all any one has to do is come as they are, we do need to beware of getting in the way of someone coming to the Lord. He will come for us! Matthew 26:64 - Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. WHEN WE WITNESS AND SOMETIMES WE DO HAVE TO, by the way we live and sometimes we should USE WORDS. We need more than ever to ask God to place in us more of Him and less of us. Matthew 28:18-20 - And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and on earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Acts 1:8 - But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Remember that we are still human and that GOD HAS POWER TO CAST INTO HELL. Luke 12:5 - But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. CHRISTIANS RECEIVE POWER TO BECOME THE SONS OF GOD but it will be at the end of this human time on earth. John 1:12 - But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: JESUS HAS POWER FROM GOD TO GIVE ETERNAL LIFE with Him and we are given a choice of where we go after this life. Heaven or Hell is the choice given to us all. John 17:2 - As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. FAITH AND POWER GO TOGETHER SAVING FAITH – Ephesians 2:8-9 SEEKING FAITH – Hebrews 11:6 SUSTAINING FAITH – Proverbs 3:5-6 STANDING (STEADFAST) FAITH – Psalm 25:1 SPEAKING FAITH – Mark 11:22-24 Sometimes it does cost us it all, to obey Him. Acts 6:8 - And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. THE GOSPEL IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION IN THAT IT IS JESUS WHO IS THE SAVIOR. Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. WE ABOUND IN HOPE BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT Romans 15:13 - Now the God of hope fills you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. WE ARE STEADFAST THROUGH THE POWER OF GOD Romans 16:25 - Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, Walking in this truth we should stop and have? DAILY PRIORITY Romans 12:1-2 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Luke 9:23-24 - And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. DAILY POWER Ephesians 3:16 - That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; Ephesians 5:18 - And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Galatians 5:16 - This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. DAILY PRECEPTS Psalm 119:97 - O how love I thy law! It is my meditation all day. Jeremiah 15:16 - Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts. DAILY PURITY 1 Peter 1:15-16 - But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. Matthew 5:8 - Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. DAILY PRAISE 1 Thessalonians 5:16 - Rejoice evermore. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 - In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Philippians 4:4 - Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. DAILY PRAYER Colossians 4:2 - Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; 1 Thessalonians 5:17 - Pray without ceasing. Ephesians 6:18 - Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; DAILY PROCLAMATION Matthew 28:19-20 - Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:2 - Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with and with longsuffering and doctrine. News flash we are still humans, even if we are saved, so we do fall down. We will not win anyone to Christ by pretending to be something we are not. People do not like hypocrisy even when they are hypocritical themselves. One of the worst things we can do as Christians is to pretend everything is okay when it isn’t. Some have this convoluted idea that Christians are to always smile, always laugh, always appear on top of things even when they are not. They are to never get angry or hurt. God tells us to love like He loves us and that means we are to love the people who will not love us back. You know that thing over there you or I don’t like. We Christians do have our sorrows. We do have our hurts, trials and disappointments. We do get angry. We do have bad days. We do have to forgive others. Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4 - To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; Unsaved people need to see that we are human, we are real. But what should they see that’s different from them in this? In our sorrow we should show hope and joy and thanksgiving. In our anger we should show forgiveness. Christians should not be defeated by sorrows. We should use them as stepping stones towards a closer walk with God and that makes us different from the unsaved. James 1:2-4, Ephesians 4:32 Until next time The Elders Wife Rosa, standing in the Gap for Him today: Mothers keep your children close, Parents, you have been given an awesome job. You have been commissioned by God to raise your children in His eyes. Tell your children that God has commissioned you to teach them about God to train them in what He has for us all, and when you speak of what is wrong or right it is because You have to obey.. Children should be given the understanding that God has given you the job and commissioned you that through tem God says to teach them. Proverbs 22:6, Ephesians 6:4 Mom Dad do this in your homes! Show your children that you do not have anything that you did not receive from the Lord and that there is nothing that He can’t have of yours for His service. There is one more reason that I’d like to add. You should live a life totally sold out to Jesus Christ because He says to live such a life. Luke 9:23-24, Matthew 10:39, Luke 14:26-27 THERE ARE REASONS TO LEAN! THERE ARE REASONS TO LOVE! THERE ARE REASONS TO LEARN TRUTH! THERE ARE REASONS TO LISTEN! THERE ARE REASONS TO LIVE! Pray for our nation. This can be our Your service in the Lord: Reply
