John 10:27-30, ” 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

In a time of loss we have Godly comfort.

2 Corinthians 5:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

8 “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”

“In the Presence of God.” That is where we are when we leave this body. We begin an eternity with God that is indescribable as to its greatness. Our loves ones who have gone on to Heaven are now in God’s Presence. This is truly a story of comfort, for our time of sorrow, knowing that our loved ones are now with God, having left all of the worldly troubles behind them. Yes! Our loves ones who have gone on to Heaven are now in the Presence of God. As the song says, “troubles vanish, hearts are mended, in the Presence of the King.” The following verses give the same words of comfort.

1 Thessalonians 4:13 Living Bible (TLB)

13 And now, dear brothers, I want you to know what happens to a Christian when he dies so that when it happens, you will not be full of sorrow, as those are who have no hope.

Revelation 21:4 New King James Version (NKJV)

4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Consider Isaiah 54:17. Explain it using the “Five W” concept. “Who, What, When, Where, Why.” Context is important. What does this verse teach us? Consider the first phrase. Consider the words of the song that is being sung by a Messianic Jewish Congregation, “Congregation Beth Yeshua,” Macon, Georgia. Check out their website for more information about Messianic Jewish congregations.

Isaiah 54:17 New King James Version (NKJV)

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

The Sabbath – The Holiness Of God

Consider the words of the Exodus account of the Sabbath. Pay special attention to verse 17.

Exodus 31:12-18 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Sign of the Sabbath

12 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13 “But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My Sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 14 Therefore you are to observe the Sabbath, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall surely be put to death. 16 So the sons of Israel shall observe the Sabbath, to celebrate the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.’17 It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed.”

18 When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.

Social Media And Believers In Christ

“you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (John 8:32)

Many Christians use social media for various reasons. Some are for quick and easy chat, and some are to share the truth of the Gospel. Unfortunately, there are many people who oppose the truth of Christ, and desire our nation (USA) and the world, to follow a course that is more aligned to the desires of Satan, sin, death and destruction. Many people have been attacked in the media, and by government sources, because of political and religious reasons. A good example is that of “Joe The Plumber.” If you don’t remember the trouble that Joe got into simply for asking a question, check out 2007 news sources.

There are many things that you have read on my blog posts and emails that are not well received by the liberal media, government, and unfortunately, the liberal and watered down church. Therefore, I have found it necessary to be careful in the way that I describe people, places, and events. My personal identity is something that I have tried to protect.

There are many people who know me, and there are many others who read my blog posts who do not know me, by name. That is a protection that I believe should continue.

Recently, I have become a part of a non-blog social media forum. Its purpose is clear, and limited to a certain community of people. In order to protect myself in this particular situation, only certain people will be a part of my personal circle of friends. The things that I will be writing will be posted so that I can gain favor within that circle. Those who are invited to be a part of that group will not be people who are a part of my current-day circle of friends. If anyone should come across my new group, and recognize me, please let me ask you to ignore this situation for the reasons that I have mentioned in this letter, and for other reasons that may be obvious to you. Every believer should be vigorously telling others about the truth of God’s Word, especially in matters of abortion, homosexual marriage, protecting our Christian practices and beliefs, and our God-given command to love, honor, respect and support Israel and the Jews.

Deuteronomy 7:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

6 For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.
