Isaiah 54 (AMPC) Posted on 3 Aug 00:00 , 4 comments

Isaiah 54 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition 54 [a]Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child! For the [spiritual] children of the desolate one will be more than the children of the married wife, says the Lord. 2 Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes, 3 For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. 4 Fear not, for you shall not be ashamed; neither be confounded and depressed, for you shall not be put to shame. For you shall forget the shame of your youth, and you shall not [seriously] remember the reproach of your widowhood any more. 5 For your Maker is your Husband—the Lord of hosts is His name—and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole earth He is called. 6 For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken, grieved in spirit, and heartsore—even a wife [wooed and won] in youth, when she is [later] refused and scorned, says your God. 7 For a brief moment I forsook you, but with great compassion and mercy I will gather you [to Me] again. 8 In a little burst of wrath I hid My face from you for a moment, but with age-enduring love and kindness I will have compassion and mercy on you, says the Lord, your Redeemer. 9 For this is like the days of Noah to Me; as I swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you or rebuke you. 10 For though the mountains should depart and the hills be shaken or removed, yet My love and kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace and completeness be removed, says the Lord, Who has compassion on you. 11 O you afflicted [city], storm-tossed and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in fair colors [in antimony to enhance their brilliance] and lay your foundations with sapphires. 12 And I will make your windows and pinnacles of [sparkling] agates or rubies, and your gates of [shining] carbuncles, and all your walls [of your enclosures] of precious stones. 13 And all your [spiritual] children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children. 14 You shall establish yourself in righteousness (rightness, in conformity with God’s will and order): you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near you. 15 Behold, they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you. 16 Behold, I have created the smith who blows on the fire of coals and who produces a weapon for its purpose; and I have created the devastator to destroy. 17 But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord. Footnotes Isaiah 54:1 Although this chapter is primarily intended to express Zion’s joy over redemption, it has also a very personal, long-neglected, and often overlooked message for women—the lonely, the disappointed, the childless, the widow. It has all the glorious confidence and assurance, the incentive and understanding, for which feminine hearts have longed throughout the ages! Every woman who will read it every week for a year with receptive heart and mind will find herself not only spiritually prepared for her own childlessness or widowhood, should it come, but also supplied with rich treasure with which to address the similar needs of countless other aching hearts to whom the Holy Spirit is here speaking.

Proverbs 14 (AMPC) Posted on 14 May 00:00 , 4 comments

Proverbs 14 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) 14 Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands. 2 He who walks in uprightness reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, but he who is contrary and devious in his ways despises Him. 3 In the [a]fool’s own mouth is a rod [to shame] his pride, but the wise men’s lips preserve them. 4 Where no oxen are, the grain crib is empty, but much increase [of crops] comes by the strength of the ox. 5 A faithful witness will not lie, but a false witness breathes out falsehoods. 6 A scoffer seeks Wisdom in vain [for his very attitude blinds and deafens him to it], but knowledge is easy to him who [being teachable] understands. 7 Go from the presence of a foolish and self-confident man, for you will not find knowledge on his lips. 8 The Wisdom [godly Wisdom, which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] of the prudent is to understand his way, but the folly of [self-confident] fools is to deceive. 9 Fools make a mock of sin and sin mocks the fools [who are its victims; a sin offering made by them only mocks them, bringing them disappointment and disfavor], but among the upright there is the favor of God. 10 The heart knows its own bitterness, and no stranger shares its joy. 11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown, but the tent of the upright shall flourish. 12 There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death. 13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful, and the end of mirth is heaviness and grief. 14 The backslider in heart [from God and from fearing God] shall be filled with [the fruit of] his own ways, and a good man shall be satisfied with [the fruit of] his ways [with the holy thoughts and actions which his heart prompts and in which he delights]. 15 The simpleton believes every word he hears, but the prudent man looks and considers well where he is going. 16 A wise man suspects danger and cautiously avoids evil, but the fool bears himself insolently and is [presumptuously] confident. 17 He who foams up quickly and flies into a passion deals foolishly, and a man of wicked plots and plans is hated. 18 The simple acquire folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. 19 The evil men bow before the good, and the wicked [stand suppliantly] at the gates of the [uncompromisingly] righteous. 20 The poor is hated even by his own neighbor, but the rich has many friends. 21 He who despises his neighbor sins [against God, his fellowman, and himself], but happy (blessed and fortunate) is he who is kind and merciful to the poor. 22 Do they not err who devise evil and wander from the way of life? But loving-kindness and mercy, loyalty and faithfulness, shall be to those who devise good. 23 In all labor there is profit, but idle talk leads only to poverty. 24 The crown of the wise is their wealth of Wisdom, but the foolishness of [self-confident] fools is [nothing but] folly. 25 A truthful witness saves lives, but a deceitful witness speaks lies [and endangers lives]. 26 In the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children shall always have a place of refuge. 27 Reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, that one may avoid the snares of death. 28 In a multitude of people is the king’s glory, but in a lack of people is the prince’s ruin. 29 He who is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who is hasty of spirit exposes and exalts his folly. 30 A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones. 31 He who oppresses the poor reproaches, mocks, and insults his Maker, but he who is kind and merciful to the needy honors Him. 32 The wicked is overthrown through his wrongdoing and calamity, but the [consistently] righteous has hope and confidence even in death. 33 Wisdom rests [silently] in the mind and heart of him who has understanding, but that which is in the inward part of [self-confident] fools is made known. 34 Uprightness and right standing with God (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) elevate a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. 35 The king’s favor is toward a wise and discreet servant, but his wrath is against him who does shamefully. Footnotes: Proverbs 14:3 The word “fool” in the Old Testament seldom, if ever, is used to describe the feebleminded, imbecile, idiot, or moron. Rather, it always has within it the meaning of a rebel, especially against God and the laws of order, decency, and justice. Notice in Proverbs how many such characteristics of rebelliousness are listed against the fool, and see God’s attitude toward them.

In Scripture
Jesus protected a woman who was caught in adultry

Did that mean Jesus was pro adultry

NOPE

Jesus was bringing justice and mercy to this woman showing respect and civility

Told NYC

Do you know how fast abortion would be ended

CourtRooms of Heaven ...Social Responsibity and Pulpits Posted on 19 Mar 08:49 , 4 comments

I have been in The Court Rooms Of Heaven asking God to forgive Pulpits for not being socially responsible as mandated in Scripture
Also asking The King of kings and Lord Of lords
To magnify those pulpits that are being socially responsible
Innocent blood is being shed with our tax money
And we pray but also we need to vote for those who want to end this

Pulpits and Social Responsibilty Posted on 19 Mar 08:47 , 4 comments

I was talking to The Lord Jesus and Our Heavenly Father about the biggest thing on some Pulpits minds
Fighting the Easter Bunny
Seriously spoke to The Lord Jesus about our educational system in this country
Thanking HIM for the strong leadership HE raising up to bring social responsibility back to HIS people
