Hosea 4: 6 (KJV) My people perish from a lack of knowledge.
Its one thing to know your Bible, but its an other thing to KNOW the God of the Bible.
Charles HaddonSpurgeon once said, ”The scripture is our inexhaustible textbook, the Lord Jesus our boundless subject and the Holy Spirit our divine infinite helper“.
When Jesus had gone forty days in the desert fasting and praying. Jesus was hungry and at a weak point. One translation says, “he was faint with hunger “. The Devil, the tempter came to him. The question I put to you dear friends is this, when does the Devil tempts you the most ? Its at your weakest moment, its at your weakest point.
How did Jesus handle this moment? He brought God into it. He quoted the Bible, God’s word. Each time the Devil tried to trap Jesus, Jesus would respond, ”It is written!”
Many people are…

15 But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple courts, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant. 16 “Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “ ‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’?” (Matthew 21:15-16)
Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace.
And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16:15-16)
And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ And I said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. But rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, delivering you from your people and from the Gentiles—to whom I am sending you to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
Sorry for a recent post that dumped lots of random codes. Will post it again, correctly.
We need to use wisdom in speaking out or broadcasting things that are happening in our lives.
Look at nature there are lots o things done in secret . Babies grow in the secret womb of their mothers. Butterflies grow in the secret place of chrysalis. Diamonds are formed in the secret place under the ground.
Jesus said in Matt 6 – when you fast, give or pray , do it in secret so that the father who watches you in secret will reward you openly.
He also said don’t cast your pearls before the pigs. Meaning don’t throw holy things before people who will trample it under their feet.
Be careful about speaking about your Vision or Dream prematurely like Joseph went around bragging to his brothers and they became jealous of him.
Be careful about showing off your treasures to the enemy like king Hezekiah did, when he…

Some people carry,
the world’s weight
for on their shoulder
their troubles grate.
Some people worry,
for on their minds
fear twists and wrings.
Some people stress,
over everyday life
for on their hearts
grinds daily strife.
Some people suffer,
for on their souls
is guilt’s impression.
Some people carry,
their burdens around
but if they’d turn to Jesus
their cares, He’d unbound!
“Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”
King James Version
