Transition: Believe it or NOT Part 3 – Christ’s Disciples

6 07 2017

TransitionWe are in a series called Transition believe it or not! Today we will be looking at the transition of the disciples found in Matthew 16:21-23 as they heard the future and responded to the news of their transition.

Here is the text from Matthew 16:

21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.
22 And Peter took him and began to rebuke him, saying, “God forbid, Lord! This shall never happen to you.”
23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men.”

 

Clearly, they were in shock when Jesus told them what he was going to face as he went to apostlesJerusalem. They look at him as their Messiah, their Savior and how could this happen after all he was the Son of God. Still in shock, Peter who was probably the oldest of the disciples, spoke for the group rebuked him saying “God forbid, Lord! This shall never happen to you.”

Transition is tough and sometimes we, like the disciples are going to protest and even reject it. It takes time to get our heads around the idea of transition.  And sometimes even when we have time to accept the truth of transition when the time is upon us we will strike out as Peter did in the garden cutting off the guards ear, trying to control the chain of events which will cause the transition we know is suppose to happen.

Join me next time as we look at Jesus as he faces his transition in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Blessings & Complete Joy!

Long Time No See!

8 06 2017

moveIt is hard to believe it has been 5 months since my last post! There was a time when doing two posts a week was the norm. For my long time readers, I am still here.

 

Since 2013, my priorities have changed quite a bit and with the changes my time has become a precious thing. CJM has gone from no office, using my pastor’s office, to now having over 1200 feet of office space which includes a conference room for holding classes. To that in the last 4 months we have added an office in Salem at Salem House of Prayer on Wednesdays! Little did I know things were going to blossom and grow the way they have!

 

I am writing this blog to renew my commitment to posting once a week. This first post is just one to catch up and say, surprise I am back!

 

Join me next week when  I will be writing my 250 words on Transition, Believe or Not!

In Yeshua,

Millie

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

Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is Near!

29 07 2016

10606784_sWe are in a new series about the Kingdom of Heaven. Today we are looking at how repentance is key to the kingdom of heaven coming near!

 

Matthew writes: From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

Matthew 4:17

 

Let’s set the stage, in the beginning of chapter 4 Yeshua had been tempted by Satan in the desert, then upon his return he learned of John the Baptist jailing. As a man, think of all the emotions he was feeling. He did the best thing, and stepped away.

 

Yeshua could have chosen to be mad at man, mad at God or mad at Satan. He chose to do12490293_s none of the above. Yeshua knew he had to stay focused. We forget that, choosing instead to walk into anger and away from the kingdom of Heaven, as we break relationship with  our God. Remembering even righteous anger turns into sinful behavior.

 

I say all this because in these days people (including those who are believers) are going to do things which you have the right to be angry about, because they wronged you, or hurt someone you care about.

 

It is not if we will get angry, for even Yeshua revealed his anger toward the money changers in the temple. But when your anger turns into sinful behavior, repent and walk back into relationship with God for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

 

Join me next time when we look at the Kingdom of Heaven from Matthew 5:3 and the poor in spirit

How Committed are You?

1 04 2016

12755593_sToday we begin a new blog series, How committed are you? In this new season, we all must assess how committed we are to our God and following His plans for our lives.

Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one in covenant with me, blind like the servant of the LORD?  You have seen many things, but you pay no attention; your ears are open, but you do not listen.”

Isa 42:19 – 20

In this passage the Lord is speaking to His people Israel who were supposed to be in a committed relationship with Him and willing to follow His plans in their lives, but clearly if you read on, they weren’t as committed to Him and He was to them.

Like Israel, you and I can take our relationship with the Lord and His plans us for granted. We can read our bible, go to church and yes even pray as if they were all part of a grand Christian check list, instead of that place where God releases His plans and strategies.  This is a new day and a new season. Do you hear the Lord calling you into a greater level of relationship? Are you willing to be fed and equipped with new manna you will need to enter new territories where you have never been before?

Join me next time as we explore how we as His servants can become deaf.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in the new season, part 3

11 03 2016

moveThis is the third post in our series How to MOVE in this new season.  Today we are unpacking the O for obedient in our acrostic MOVE.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

2Co 10:5

Obedient is the choice we make whether to submit to control or guidance.

The student makes the choice when he/she walks into a classroom whether to submit to their teacher control and guidance, just as a child chooses to respond obediently to the correction/control of a loving parent.

Obedience is the ultimate choice. As a nation we have chosen to remove the 10 commandments from our public spaces. We set ourselves, our wants, our hopes and our desires against the knowledge of God and abandoning God as we refuse tofather daughter take our thought life captive, resulting in lives which are pulled to and fro by every passing wind.

Obedience to Christ in this season will bring us to a higher level of functionality, as we  embrace our Lord who is a good God, rather than revolting against the vindictive God once preached from pulpits across our nation and around the world in hopes to control people to walk obediently with their maker.

To be obedient to Yeshua (Christ) is a conscious choice, one I embrace with both hands, my whole heart and every brain cell I have! I know as I take every thought captive God will sift my thought life, purifying my motives so I can function to a higher level in this season!

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

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
