Luke 12

1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:

12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?

42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.

  1. 6. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

    7. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    Don’t let Satan deceive you into believing that you are not important or useful; God loves you just as much as He does everyone else. He has a plan for you and is waiting on you to allow Him to work in your life.

  2. 8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

    9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

    10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

    My heart gets sad for those people that we have prayed with or for that respond with coldness or indifference; but none the less it is not for us to judge but to God. It is not us they are refusing but Jesus!!! I pray for the heart of rock to be changed for heart of flesh . Let their hearts be fertile to receive the seed of truth. For that seed to germinate and give fruit & for ALL LABORERS TO BE WILLING & ABLE TO PICK UP THE HARVEST!!! For the fields will be white this Sunday IN JESUS NAME AMEN & AMEN

  3. Keep your light burning!

    “Get dressed for service and keep your lamps burning; be like people waiting for their master to come back from the wedding celebration, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. Blessed are those slaves whom their master finds alert when he returns! I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, have them take their place at the table, and will come and wait on them! Even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night and finds them alert, blessed are those slaves! But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.” (‭Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭35-40‬ NET)

    It can be so easy to be caught up with the cares of…. Life, and lose sight of what truly is important which is the KINGDOM of GOD. We tend to build our own kingdom and desire more of it, which can be destroyed immediately by the hand of a merciful GOD so we can refocus and see what truly is important.
    As the scripture says today:

    But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. (‭Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭31‬ KJV)

    When we learn to always put the KINGDOM of GOD first, we shall have enough confidence in Him to know that He will take care of His own.

    Minister to the lost, to the broken hearted, to those that hunger, to the blind, etc. and you’ll shall see that GOD is willing to use a willing vessel. All for HIS glory!

  4. Verses 6-7 MSG “What’s the price of two or three pet canaries? Some loose change, right? But God never overlooks a single one. And he pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! So don’t be intimidated by all this bully talk. You’re worth more than a million canaries.” Do not let anyone or anything tell you otherwise….you are precious in the eyes of God. He knows what you need and when you actually need it! As verses 29-31 NLT say “And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need. Same verses in MSG “What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax, not be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.”

  5. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

    Treasure the things of God! We will be and do what we treasure the most. We must make Jesus the greatest treasure of our life. We should always put God first and allow him to be the center of our life. It is not hard to tell where our hearts are, we will be what is in our hearts. These things will control our lives and others will be able to see what is there.
    I pray God let me see where my treasure really is.

  6. 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

    But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23
    We/I may think we are hiding what is wrong but as you see your sins will find you out. I told my girls growing up that if they didn’t something that we as parents didn’t agree with that we would find out may not find out the time they did it, but we would find out. Sometimes we as parents know but we just need confirmation and it always comes out in the truth. So be careful what you do behind closed doors because it will come to surface.

  7. Don’t Worry, BE HAPPY!

    30, “For all these things the nations of the world seek after; and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.”
    31, “But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

    What things? What we wear, what we eat, and what we drink. Don’t be worried over these everday things, but Be HAPPY in seeking the kingdom of God first, His will and His ways, and then He will provide for our everday needs.

    Phil. 4:19, “But my God shall supply ALL your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

  8. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
    32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
    34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

    God designed us for relationship, and relationships consist of emotional bonds. We know that by the ways we connect closely with other people. This doesn’t happen simply through shared information or shared experiences. You can sit in a long class or business meeting sharing a lot of information with a lot of other people, but your relationship with them may not be any deeper after the meeting is over.

    Closeness is created by the shared emotional responses to information and experiences. When our feelings line up with someone else’s, we feel a connection. When they don’t, we don’t. It’s the same way with God. He doesn’t tell us just to learn His attributes and be able to describe what He is like, or even just to obey Him. He calls us into a relationship—one that is deep and intimate. We’re supposed to grow continually closer to Him throughout our lives. We must learn to feel the way He feels, if we don’t connect; we never really know Him.

  9. 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    I take comfort today in knowing that if our God cares so much for the little sparrow that falls tot he ground, and they are not forgotten by God, then how much more does he care for the human being whom He created to be in relationship and fellowship with Him? If He knows when I lose a hair, He surely knows when my heart is broken and I don’t understand, yet still I will trust Him for He knows what’s best.

  10. Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.” (‭Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭15‬ NLT)

    Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”

    Do your possessions posses you? Or do you posses them? You don’t need material things that you think make you happy like cars and houses. You need to love and give time to the ones you love. And time talent and treasure to God.

    Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need. (‭Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭15, 31‬ NLT)

  11. 13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

    14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

    15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

    When we bring problems to God in prayer he often doesn’t give us the answer we want but he gives us the answer that we need! He often shows us how we need to change and grow our relationship with God. Life is more than material goods , our relationship with God is far more important!

  12. v3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops .

    v5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell: I say unto you, Fear him.

    ” Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”
    For God shall bring every work into judgment , with secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil .
    Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

    JESUS taught that we must even give account for every idle word that we speak
    Matthew 12:36
    With forewarning of such intense examination , an individual should be mindful of his day to day life.
    None shall escape the judgment of CHRIST.
    Someday we will stand before JESUS at the final judgment and hear our eternal destiny.

    i Choose Obedience to GOD’S Word

  13. 45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

    46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

    We must guard our hearts & minds and be aware of the judgement coming. If the righteous are scarcely saved, where do the ungodly & sinners stand? From the abundance of the heart – we speak. This is not the time to be negative or to judge one another. Rather, lay up treasures in heaven.

  14. KEEP THE LIGHT ON

    31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
    32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
    33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
    34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
    35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

    Direction is so important to our survival, progress and success in the Kingdom of GOD. It is frequent that we witness believers that have sought the Kingdom of GOD become distracted and seek the things that are temporal of this world. We learn from this passage that the way to obtain from the LORD is to seek what he treasures, HIS Kingdom. It is HIS good pleasure to give us the Kingdom.

    We prepare and posture to receive HIS Kingdom when we seek HIM with our whole heart and seek as it is the TREASURE of our LIFE, through living life this way we are living with our LIGHTS BURNING, thereby KEEP THE LIGHTS ON.

    Seek the Kingdom and will of GOD with all of your heart and your LIGHT will burn.

  15. 27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

    30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

    31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    Why is it so easy to forget that God is in control.. How is it so easily forgotten that he knows our end and our beginning. Why let little cares and distractions of this world be a hindrance to us. When we get caught up with the things of this world that demand our attention we begin to loose focus. Why worry when the maker of the stars is holding our hearts. God’s got everything under control and im going to trust in that.

  16. 31 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.

    34 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. (NLT)

    We must be careful where we place our attention, what we do with our spare time; Seek after and treasure the things of God because He will never fail you.

  17. It’s sobering to read how God would take the soul of a man who hoarded his riches. He was prepared to build a bigger barn to house his fruits. He praised himself saying: 19 “.. to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.” He placed so much security in his wealth that he only planned to satisfy himself with it. He literally worshiped mamon. In Matt 6: 30 “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Our great treasure and reward is and comes from God.

    Jesus says in Luke 16: 9And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.10He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. 11If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? 12And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own? 13No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon

  18. Deny not

    a brief study on denial

    8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
    9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
    (Luke 12:9 KJVStrongs)

    8 And I tell you, Whoever declares openly [speaking out freely] and confesses that he is My worshiper and acknowledges Me before men, the Son of Man also will declare and confess and acknowledge him before the angels of God.
    9 But he who disowns and denies and rejects and refuses to acknowledge Me before men will be disowned and denied and rejected and refused acknowledgement in the presence of the angels of God.
    (Luke 12:9 AMP)

    8 “I assure you that whoever declares publicly that he belongs to me, the Son of Man will do the same for him before the angels of God. 9 But whoever rejects me publicly, the Son of Man will also reject him before the angels of God
    (Luke 12:8-9 TEV)

    Denieth – g0720. ἀρνέομαι arneomai; perhaps from 1 (as a negative particle) and the middle voice of 4483; to contradict, i. e. disavow, reject, abnegate:— deny, refuse.
    AV (31)- deny 29, refuse 2;
    to deny to deny someone to deny one’s self to disregard his own interests or to prove false to himself act entirely unlike himself to deny, abnegate, abjure not to accept, to reject, to refuse something offered
    ( STRONG)

    to renounce one’s own character, to be inconsistent with oneself
    ( CWSDict)

    [766] ἀρνέομαι arneomai 33x to deny, disclaim, disown, Mt. 10:33; to renounce, Tit. 2:12; to decline, refuse, Heb. 11:24; absol. to deny, contradict, Lk. 8:15 [720] See deny; disown; reject; renounce.
    ( MED)

    Merriam Webster defines deny as to declare untrue

    Deny means that something is true but the person is lying and saying it is false.

    Denial before men is how we live. It is our actions, and our behavior. It is especially our attitude.

    When we deny Jesus we are showing the world we are something that deep down we are not.

    I will never forget the day I sat in a hotel room with a biker gang at a party. One of them out of the blue looked at me and said “you don’t belong here” “you’re not supposed to be here”

    I tried to deny, but I knew what he was speaking of as the conviction of God gripped my heart. I denied association, allegation, relationship, and allegiance.

    My behavior was that of the Biker gang, but deep down I was a backslidden child of God.

    The red sea was opened, and closed. Our born again experience is a covenant. We can never become unborn again. This covenant is forever.

    Denial is actually self deception.

  19. Unshaken

    29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

    30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

    31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    This famous passage seems so simple but it can be such a challenge for us to live. When the storms of life rage, it can be easy to feel intimidated and uncertain. But we are called to be unshaken with our lives secure in Christ. It is the distraction of the enemy to get our lives off our stability in Him and focused upon problems instead. If we can be deceived that we lack stability, we will easily be influenced to walk away from the Rock who keeps us from being truly shaken.

    Proverbs 3:5-6
    5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

  20. Be ready or not….

    Vs 46/
    The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will apoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

    47/ And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

    Dont eant to be out of God’s will at anytime. There’s so many people got out of the faith and went thier own way…buts whats Really Happening?? Come back to JESUS. He’s the way, truth and life no one can see the Father but by me(Jesus).

  21. 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    Oh dang. I like this. If God can take care of the birds….he’ll take care if us.

  22. iLove to eat the Word

    15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

    Amen, let’s give to the kingdom of God and watch the harvest come in! God will repay and care for his children.

  23. Shepherd, Father, King

    ” ‘Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom’ ” (Luke 12:32).
    In one statement Jesus conveyed three different ways that our heavenly Father shows His concern for us: “Little Flock” “Your Father” “The kingdom”

    Talk about mixed metaphors! Jesus used three here. Can’t you just see the the red circles on the paper if Jesus had submitted this passage as part of an assigned English essay? But Jesus wanted to be as reassuring as possible. He truly wanted to spare us from fear, so He use not just one but three images to communicate to us why we should not be afraid. He wanted us to know that God is our Shepherd, our Father, our king ! each of these metaphors conveys the message that God’s understanding of the situation is far superior to ours. After all, sheep are pretty dumb creatures, children lack experience, and subjects of a kingdom don’t know all there is to know about the state of affairs in the realm. But God does!

  24. Stop stressing

    24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

    25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

    26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

    Worrying or stressing are the opposites of faith. God is not pleased with worriers they say that God can’t handle it . Help us Lord to not stress and increase our faith.

  25. 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

    7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    God’s in control and has everything in His hands. We find ourselves sometimes wondering how is this or that going too work out but God has numbered the hairs on our heads and if he took enough time to do that then surely he will take care of our needs

  26. WESTERN DAY!!!

    Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. (‭Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭43‬ KJV)

    It’s almost here. Everyone is so excited, but are we servants doing our jobs? Are we doing what we have been left in charge of? When it comes time for inspection will we have a good report or will we have to give excuses for why it us not done? If we are all doing our small part then we are working as a small part of a large clock (like Big Ben). It will bring unity for us to all work as one unit to get things together.

    And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. (‭Genesis‬ ‭11‬:‭6‬ KJV)

    Unity!
    Go BIG or go home!

  27. Luke 12:21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”

    God is not against making money, in fact the word tell us to work. He who works shall eat. However he is about where your heart is at. For where your treasure is at there your heart will be also. What is more passionate to you; Staying late at work to get the extra few bucks or not missing church or your prayer/alone time with God? There is nothing that can bring more joy than being in the presence of God. No raise or promotion can ever substitute God’s glory. We are advices to make riches in heave where the thief won’t get and the moth won’t ruin it. What greater joy it is to see someone you have witnessed to come to repentance and get baptized in Jesus name and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost… The angels feast in heaven!! We are called wise when we win souls. Yes everyone would like to have the commodity and a sense of security by accumulating riches, but the Word tells us not to worry what we shall eat or clothe or anything for the matter because He knows what we have need of. We are told seek first the kingdom of God and everything else shall be added. This life can be full of vanity and in vain without Jesus. I pray therefore that I may have a rich relationship with The Lord, my God. In Him I have life and have more abundantly.

  28. Gods plan for your life.

    Luke 12:47
    ” And that slave who knew his master’s will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes,”

    It is best to do the will of the lord than to let it pass by. It’s time to work.

  29. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    Amen! 🙂 God is a faithful God and if we seek his kingdom he will supply ALL our needs. He loves his children and will not abandon us. His timing is ALWAYS on time and we have to learn to just have faith in HIM and EVERYTHING will be fine. I’ve learned that Gods plans are much better than my plans. Unlike many in the world that have their trust in money, parents, job, or other treasures it ain’t till your faith starts working when you leave everything up to God and truly trust in HIM!!!!!! Who better than God to have control over my life:) IN YOU I TRUST JESUS!!!!! Even when situations may seem like they have no solution stand firm in your faith and God will come thru!!!

  30. Don’t Blaspheme the Holy Ghost 6. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. 8. Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: Matt. 10 : 32 9. But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. 10. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Ho’-ly Ghost it shall not be forgiven. Matt. 12 : 31 11. And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: Matt. 10 : 19 Luke 21 : 14 12. For the Ho’-ly Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. I Give you praise Jesus !!!! I give you glory Jesus !!!! I give you honor !!!!

  31. 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

    7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    Oh how important we are to God, for he counts every single hair on your head and know when just one falls off! Thank you Jesus for loving us.

  32. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
    35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights be burning ;

  33. 22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

    By far one of the hardest things to doing,no doubt that the enemy is on the prowl looking for some one to destroy. The enemy has been trying to hit us from every side, greater is He who is with us then he who is in this world!
    We are more than conquerors through Christ, the true meaning of faith is being revealed to us, praise God
