Letters from Heaven.

 

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, to present her to Himself as a radiant Church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought
To love their wives as their own bodies.

 

May God continue to guide you down that
pathway called love.

Letters from Heaven

Marriage was instituted by God Himself, He performed the first marriage when He walked Eve through the garden and placed her hand into the hand of Adams in holy matrimony.

Matrimony is a Holy covenant between God, the husband, and the wife. It is a solemn agreement that is binding on all parties.

God’s part of the marriage covenant is to perform the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember His holy covenant to bless your marriage, to fill your home with joy, peace, and happiness.

The Husband and his wife’s part of the covenant are to be faithful to their vows., to live together after God’s ordinance in the holy estate of matrimony? To love one another to comfort one another, to honor one another, and continue loving one another in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, thus keeping their marriage holy and pure, which is pleasing to God. Husbands, wives, love one another, and do not be bitter toward each other, and let the peace of God rule in your hearts, and pray for your marriage, one another, your children, and your home.

FIVE WORKS OF THE SPIRIT REGARDING THE WORD.

By Gene Cunningham.

(1) Revelation:

Revelation is the means by which God the Holy Spirit revealed His message to prophets and apostles. God communicated to man what otherwise could not be know, things which man could never discover by either reason or observation. While the existence of the physical world discloses the fact that there must be a creator, the natural world by itself cannot reveal such things as the creator’s Righteousness, love, and grace, or salvation He holds out to man. For this, God Himself spoke to men (2-Tim.3:16).

 

(2) Inspiration:

Inspiration is the works by which the Spirit controlled and superintended the writers of Scripture so that what they wrote was exactly the message God wanted written. The authors of Scripture did not simply write what they felt like writing; they were “moved” or “carried along by the Holy Spirit. Each person through whom the Spirit worked retained his unique viewpoint and style, but the Spirit guided each so that no error intruded into the original manuscripts and so that the very words were the exact words that God the Holy Spirit wanted written (2-Pet.1:21).

(3) Preservation:

(1-Pet.1:25). Only the doctrines of inspiration and preservation can explain the existence of the Bible today. The Bible is one book with one message, but to make this one book, the Holy Spirit caused to be brought together 66 individual books written in three languages by more than 40 authors over a 1,500-year time span. Today 2,000 years after its completion, the Bible continues to be the most widely distributed book ever written. Only God could understand to preserve Scripture, and has promised to do just that, The Word of God will be preserved in eternity (Ps.119:89). And will last forever (Ps.119:152).

 

(4) ILLUMINATION:

(John 16:13) To illuminate means “to cast light on.” Only the Holy Spirit can cast light on the word and make it clear to man. By himself, man is blinded by Satan and is unable to understand divine truth
(1-Cor.2:14) (2-Cor.4:4). In the work of illumination, the Holy Spirit makes the written Word understandable and applicable to the individual believer’s needs. Whether the Spirit will open our eyes when we study depends on our attitude when we approach the Word (John 7:17). This is why it is essential to be filled with the Spirit when we study.

 

(5) INTERPRETATION:

(2-Pet.1:20). To interpret means “to explain or tell the meaning of.” The apostle Peter makes it absolutely clear that there is only one correct interpretation of any passage in the Bible and that is the Bible’s own interpretation. Only by applying the laws of hermeneutics-rules of systematic study-can any student discover the correct interpretation on any passage. While there is only one interpretation, there may be many applications-ways in which a scriptural truth may be used in a person’s life. 

 

````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````                                                     

 

Walk by faith not by sight.

Jesus, after His resurrection showed Himself alive to His eleven apostles, Thomas was not present when Jesus appeared to the rest of the Disciples. When Jesus, had departed the eleven disciples found Thomas and told Him that they had seen Christ; Thomas did not believe them saying, unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the nail hole, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe it is He.

Jesus returned to the twelve after eight day's and said to Thomas put your finger here and look at my hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side, do not be unbelieving, but believe that it is I. Jesus said to Thomas; because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed (John 20:24-31).

Christians have been taught not to look at the things which are seen. But at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal (2-Cor.4:18).
The Christian's hope and faith are in the promises of God; although we do not see them now, we know they are not far away.

 

Men ought to always pray.

The Lord was angry with the people whom Moses had brought out of the land of Egypt because they had corrupted themselves. God was angry because the people made for themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and said, this is your God. And the Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people! Therefore My wrath burns hot against them and I will consume them (Ex.32:7-10).

Then Moses pleaded with the Lord his God saying, turn from your fierce wrath, and relent from this harm to your people. Then Moses said, Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants to whom you swore by your own self, and said to them, I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of I give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.

When Moses had finished talking with the Lord, The Lord relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people. (Ex 32:11-14).

 

Six reasons to pray.

1) Jesus said men ought to always pray and not lose
heart (Lk.18:1).
2) Pray that you may be counted worth to stand
before the Son of God (Lk.21.
3) Pray that you do not enter into temptation
(Lk.22:40).
4) Pray that Jesus prays for you (Jn.17:1-26).
5) Pray that your evil thoughts may be forgiven
You (Acts 8:22).
6) Pray that your walk with the Lord may be
sincere and without offense till the day of Christ
(Phill.1:10).
7) Pray for your pastors, your church, and one
Another.

HARBORING BITTERNESS

Today’s topic is harboring Bitterness.

Today, I would like to speak on the topic of “Harboring Bitterness.”
I chose this topic because of the adverse effect hidden bitterness will have on the Christian life. A friend asked me a question, saying, can I still be a Christian if there is bitterness hidden in my heart? The apostle Paul never wrote a letter calling a believer a non-Christian because of a Heart, filled with bitterness; however, he did call them carnally minded.

Paul describes a carnally mind Christian.

A carnally minded Christian is someone who, after conversion, has shown little or no change in their conduct. The Christian who fails to renew their mind, their way of thinking, speaking, and their lack of self-control are subject to become carnally minded. Paul says, for where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
(Please read James 3:14-18).

A renewed mind.

The pastor writes, Christians must renew their minds so that their focus is on spiritual things, where Christ is seated, and not on earthly things which are perishing (Read Col.3:1).

Don’t become a victim.

The Christians who fail to renew their mind, their old way of thinking, speaking, and their old conduct are easy candidates who might suffer the effects of a bitter spirit.

Do not love the world.

Paul writes in (1-Jn.2:15-17), Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world-the Lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not Of the Father but is of the world.
And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Pastor Dennis writes:

Christian, are taught that we are to present our bodies to God as a living sacrifice. One way to accomplish such a task is to put on Christ, in other word’s walk according to the Spirit, walk by God’s word, walk by what God has written, and not according to the flesh or our desires, making ourselves a God.

The Christian body:

Paul writes in (Rom.12:1-2) saying, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the Renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Pastor Dennis writes:

Christians who refuse or are slow to abandon their old way of thinking, as well as their old conduct, will most likely have a carnal mind. Their thoughts and views on life will be worldly and not godly.

Jesus joins the conversation:

Jesus said in (Mark 2:22) And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.

Jesus writes saying:

Jesus said, like the new wine which can not be put into old wineskins, likewise
The Holy Spirit can not function in a Christian who has not renewed their mind.

Paul’s letter to the church:

Paul writes in (Gal.5:17) saying, for the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh, and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things you wish.

How to end spiritual warfare:

Paul writes in (Col.3:5) telling Christians how to end such conflicts.
Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth:
Fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desires, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
Because of these things, what things? Fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desires, and covetousness, the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of
Disobedience, In which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.

Put off your old conduct:

Paul writes in (1-Cor.2:16), saying but now since the Holy Spirit is living within the believer, put off your old conduct, the way we think, and the way we act since we now have the mind of Christ Let us then think like Christ.

Put off all theses things:

Paul writes, but now you yourselves are to put of all theses: anger, wrath,
malice, blasphemy, filthy language Out of your mouth.
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds.
And have put on the new man who is renewed in the knowledge according to the image of Him Who created him.

Put on the new man.

Paul writes, as the elect of God, put on the new man created for good works.

How to enhance your Christian walk.

In (Col.3:12-13) Paul writes, therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, and longsuffering;
Bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.

Put on the bond of perfection.

As followers of Christ, the apostle Paul tells us to put on the bond of perfection.

In (Col.3:14-17) Paul writes, But above all these things put on Love, which is the bond of perfection. and let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one
Another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God The Father through Him.

Pastor Dennis writes.

Sometimes although Christians, we can be hesitate or slow to act when we do something for a spouse, friend or boss. The apostle Paul tells us how to have joy in whatever we might be doing in this life.

Do it for the Lord.

In Col.3:23-24) Paul writes, and whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
Knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the Inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.


Be watchful.

Paul writes in (Heb.12:14-15) saying, pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without no one will see the Lord: Looking carefully least anyone fall short of the grace of God; Least anyone root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled.

Live a peaceful life.

The pastor writes, keeping the faith is based on Loving God. Yourself and others, as well as living a peaceful life with all people.

Examine yourself.

Paul writes in (2-Cor.13:5) Examine yourself as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know your-Selves, that Jesus Christ is in you-Unless indeed you are disqualified.

We can defeat a bitter spirit.

The Pastor writes, bitterness is always present, waiting to strike even the seasoned Christian. However, we can defeat bitterness by living our lives by obeying God’s word.
