Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Today, if you hear his voice, Psalm 95:6-7 ESV
2 Kings 5
The Word of the Lord is what heals so who cares what method He uses? I sure don’t!!! Ministry is about doing the work of the Lord and not about financial gain. I will say the Lord abundantly blesses those who bless others! Gehazi should certainly have known this being the servant of Elisha!
Jeremiah laments over the rebellion of Israel and Judah as the disaster has now come to pass.
I never did understand how the Jehovah’s Witnesses thought they were the 144,000 when the Bible is so very clear that they are only men from the tribes of Israel. It is so exciting that people from all nations and tribes who come out of the Tribulation will be before the Lord! There are too many to count! Thank You Lord that Your Presence shelters me! No more tears, living water, sheltered by the Lord! It will be incredible!
Meditate & Apply: Methods are not Gospel but faith is Gospel! I must have a lamenting heart over those who hate God and pray for them to turn to Him. Sin caused the earth to be sentenced to death yet a time is coming for a new heaven and earth where there will be no more suffering ever again!
I found it interesting that Dan and Ephraim are not included in the 144,000. Does it say 'Joseph' because some from Ephraim were not rebellious? We must stay faithful to the Lord!
Yes, doing Gods will brings more blessing than money ever could, and God brings monetary blessings to us also to build His kingdom so we truly lack nothing. There is nothing in this world like His presence!
