Poor in Spirit – Kingdom of Heaven – part 3

5 08 2016

10606784_sWe are in a series about the Kingdom of Heaven. Today we are looking at the poor in Spirit!

 

Jesus speaking in Matthew 5:3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 

At first glance these words blessed and poor seem to be polar opposites. They are use by our Messiah to awakens us to the truth we are all poor in spirit. We are not the spiritual giants we want to be, we are not God and yet the kingdom of heaven belongs to us.

 

Our Lord and Savior wanted us to know God isn’t looking for spiritual giants. He isn’t looking for everyone to be a Billy or Franklin Graham, or a Mother Teresa or a Cindy Jacobs. God is looking for the Susie the homemakers and the Joe the handyman’s who know they need a relationship with God and are willing to seek Everyday family cologeHim with all their hearts.

 

Our Messiah said to us, it is okay to mourn and it is okay to be meek. It is okay to hunger and thirst for righteousness and to be merciful. To have a pure heart and to be a peacemaker of great value in the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

In this day and age of the Hillary Clinton’s and the Donald Trump’s God is using these words to say to us, be who I created you to be for the Kingdom of Heaven belong to you!

 

Join me next time when we continue looking at the Kingdom of Heaven from Matthew 5 and the key of righteousness.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Kingdom of Heaven – part 1

8 07 2016

10606784_sWe are entering a new series about the Kingdom of Heaven. In doing my research I found that the term Kingdom of Heaven is found 10 times in Matthew’s gospel alone while the term Kingdom of God is found 68 times over 10 different NT books.

We are not here to debate if the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven are different or the same, but to begin this series I need you to understand that we will be using both of these terms as they share a common root, Kingdom.

Readers of the Old Testament were familiar with the term God of Heaven (Daniel 2:44) so with the coming of Yeshua the term Kingdom of Heaven spoke deeply to the fulfillment of our soon coming king and savior of the world, whether you call him Jesus Christ or Yeshua!

Join me next time when we look at the Kingdom of Heaven in Matthew 4:17 and the need to repent!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How Committed are You, part 4

17 06 2016

12755593_sWe are in the series, How committed are you? As we close this series, I realize that as readers you might be left with a question to ponder. What is revelational knowledge? So today we are going to talk about revelational knowledge before we begin our new series next time on Kingdom of Heaven where revelational knowledge is key to moving forward.

What is revelational knowledge? Using the Webster’s dictionary we find that revelation is the act of revealing or communicating divine truth. Others might consider it more of an enlightenment or astonish disclosure.

Much of the bible is the result of revelational knowledge. No human was with God during creation. God himself revealedOregon Coast to man, “His spirit hovered over the surface of the water” and His creation of light.

Revelational knowledge changes us, empowers us and causes us to strike out into paths we would never alone have walked.

It was spoken of Yeshua, in Heb 12:2  “For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God”. It was the revelational knowledge which allowed him to finish well and sit at the right hand of God.

As you ponder revelational knowledge, remember we are by God’s design being pressed, stretched and finally torn, so that the dross of the old season will disappear!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in this new season, Part 5

25 03 2016

moveThis is the fifth post in our series How to MOVE in this new season.  Today we are unpacking the E for Equipped in our acrostic MOVE.

 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2Ti 3:16

 

To be equipped is to be furnished with something, others would use the word provision.

In 2 Timothy 3 we see God thoroughly equipping the servant of God with the gospel for every good work. In the Old Testament we see the people of God equipped for  physical battle. In every case when the people of God are thoroughly equipped, they are fully prepared for the task at hand.

In this season we need to be ready for God to furnish those things we need. Currently I have been asking for strategies in how to move forward for the Oregon Tabernacle Tent (OTT) as well as for Complete Joy Ministries.

I was praying for God’s strategy for how to re-brand OTT since the vinyl lettering I had putOTT logo on last year came coming off. In faith I removed the rest of the lettering and chose to wait for God to reveal what we should do. In the most unlikely place a man I knew gave me a name of a christian seamstress who can do the job and she is only about 3 miles from my office, so no need to take it down to Salem which is 50 miles away!

Watching for how God will equip the work He has called you do is the final key to our movement in this and any season. When you are equipped to do the work of service movement will be easier and you will find the job goes much more smoothly than if you walk forward ahead of God without His equipping!

Don’t worry or move into anxiousness as you wait to be equipped, because tomorrow God may equip you and call you to move!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in the New Season – part 2

4 03 2016

moveThis is the second post in our series How to MOVE in this new season.  Today we are unpacking the M for motive in our acrostic MOVE.

“All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the LORD.”

Pro 16:2

Motive as Webster’s defines it is something that causes us to act.

Let’s explore the motives of the average parent. On a good day a parent picks up the crying infant out of love, while on a tough day that same parent might pick up the same child because the crying is bothering them. The same parent, the same child, the same crying,Baby different motives. Motives fuel the whys of what we do. I stop at the red light because I want to honor the laws of my state, keeping me safe. On another day my motives may cause me to push through, running that same light.

We must take ownership of our motives understanding we are human. We need the Lord to weigh them. As we move in this new season, the motives of our movements may seem pure to us but we must receive the revelation of how the Lord sees our motives, helping us to walk with integrity and righteousness.

Join me next time when unpack the next key to moving in the new season, O for obedience.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in the new season!

26 02 2016

moveWe are beginning a new series called “How to MOVE in this new season”. We will be using the acrostic MOVE to explain several important aspects of our movement in this season.

To Move is to go continuously from one point to another!

We take as our inspiration from these two verses:

 

And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees

and be careful to keep my laws.

Eze 36:27

 

“For in him we live and move and have our being.”

As some of your own poets have said, “We are his offspring.”

Act 17:28

We have to watch as we move forward in this season because there is so much that is passing by, whether it is the weekly services, maybe another conference or something else, we have to be aware of when and how to move so we stay in harmony with the plans and purposes of God!

We have to understand and know our motives; we have to be obedient to God. We have to walk with virtue and allow God to equip us, because without His equipping us, we might find ourselves off course or stranded in the middle of the night!

Join me next time as we look at the M in move, Motives!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Meaning of a Savior – Part 7

18 12 2015

Is 9We are in a series Meaning of a Savior and last time we looked at the third attribute Mighty God, so today we look at Everlasting Father as we explore Isaiah 9:6.

 

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”    

Isa 9:6

 

 

As we look at this attribute Everlasting Father we see Isaiah reminding Israel of those words, in I Chronicles 29:10 and following which expounds on the greatness, the power, the glory, the splendor and the majesty of the one who createdEverlasting Father them. Yet this attribute used purposefully by Isaiah connects Yahweh the God of the Old Testament to the His Son Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah and savior of the world.

 

Yeshua came that none would parish, not Jew, not gentile, no matter the race, color or creed. Yeshua has the same attributes as his everlasting father, for he carries his power, his glory, his splendor and his majesty!

 

Join me next time as we unpack the final attribute of Isaiah 9:6, Prince of Peace.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
