BE FILLED WITH HOPE

BE FILLED WITH HOPE

Psalm 25:3,5 “No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.”

The Scene: A cloud covered sky with a single blue sky opening–a representation of hope in the Lord during this time of your life.

We have God’s promises and truth to hold onto in times of trouble. He is our stronghold and refuge; never let go of His Word and depend on Him always.

1 John 3:2b-3 “But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.”

1 Peter 1:3-5 ” Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade–kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.”

6-35 HOPE

LET GO OF YOUR PURSE

LET GO OF YOUR PURSE

Luke 12:32-34 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

The Scene: A leather money pouch or purse filled with money and a green mist surrounding the purse representing greed–controlled by a spirit of whoredoms (or greed, which is idolatry).

1 Timothy 6:6,9-10 “But godliness with contentment is great gain. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

Saints, pray for the Church. Bind the spirit of whoredoms (Hosea 4:12 KJV) in the name of Jesus; loose the Spirit of God in the name of Jesus for the Church. We are called to be a people of salt and light, called to share with the needy when we have been given more than enough.

Leviticus 25:35 “If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you.”

ALWAYS WITH US

ALWAYS WITH US

Psalm 125:1 “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.”

The scene: Represents Mt. Zion–the highest place, on the earth, at the end of time, the end of the ages, the site where God spoke to Moses.

“I AM, and I will always be with you, my people, said the Holy Spirit. “i will be with you to the end, just as Mt. Zion will be left standing. Stand with Me and be courageous, my people, for I AM is faithful.”

Exodus 3:14 “God said to Moses, ‘I AM who I AM. This what you are to say to the Israelites; I AM has sent me to you.’ “

Galatians 5:1 “It is for freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

We wait for our Savior’s return to Mt. Zion and continue at every opportunity (God given) to say to the world, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

FIRM FOOTING (FOUNDATION)

FIRM FOOTING (FOUNDATION)

Matthew 7:24-25 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”

The Scene: High-rise buildings, apartments, houses sitting over drilled pier casings, sunk deeply into the ground. Circled numbers as follows: 1) surface, above grade 2) earth, below grade 3) drilled piers, footings extending down to bedrock, deep in the ground + steel casings filled with concrete and structural steel reinforcing rods inside the casings 4) bedrock footing for the drilled piers to rest upon.

Holy Spirit insight: The high-rise buildings would not stand for long without a firm foundation, set upon rock. Our faith cannot last, either, without a firm foundation. (Built on the Rock: Jesus Christ our Lord.)

Ephesians 2:19:22 “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”

Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”

6-53 STRONG FOUNDATION

ALIVE TO CHRIST(DEAD TO SIN)

ALIVE TO CHRIST

Romans 6:18 “You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. “

The Scene: Grave marker (headstone) reading, “Dead to Sin” and a rising spirit representing being “Alive with Christ“. The 3 birds represent the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit watching the freed man.

Romans 6:5 “If we have been united* with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.” *United; fused as in welded together.

Romans 6:7 “Because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.” (The flesh has died–and for the born-again Christians the new inner man has emerged!)

Romans 6:10-11 “The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.”

NOTE: For complete understanding Read Romans 6:1-14

LIFE-GIVING WATERS

LIFE-GIVING IMAGES

Isaiah 33:21 “There the Lord will be our Mighty One. It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams. No galley with oars will ride them, no mighty ship will sail them.”

The Scene: Gentle currents–flow of a broad, shallow river with peaceful surroundings.

The Lord promises us peace like a river when we obey Him.

Isaiah 48:18 “If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”

When we choose to release our fleshly being to the will of the Holy Spirit, we can find peace and enjoy inner peace in the heart.

Isaiah 46:4 “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”

We can trust Him in all circumstances in His time. Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing will make them stumble.”

ROOTS OF BITTERNESS

ROOTS OF BITTERNESS

Hebrews 12:14 ” Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

The Scene: Two doves, their names are Love and Kindness, hovering above the plants . The plants are bitter herbs and bitter roots, that represent hurting people who are bitter and haveheart trouble“, the Holy Spirit said.

Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

1 Peter 3:8, 10-13 “Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. For, whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

6-54 Humility

JESUS IS OUR STRONGHOLD

JESUS OUR STRONGHOLD

1 Samuel 13:6 “When the men of Israel saw that their situation was critical and that their army was hard pressed, they hid in caves and thickets, among the rocks, and in pits and cisterns.”

The Scene: a natural cave–a stronghold

1 Samuel 23:14 “David stayed in the desert strongholds and in the hills of the Desert of Ziph. Day after day Saul searched for him, but God did not give David into his hands.”

Jesus Christ our Lord is our stronghold. We are in Him and He is in us we follow the truth of God’s Word. Jesus is our defender; like David’s cave, Jesus is our provider of protection, when we call upon His mighty name. We can run into Him and be safe from our enemies.

Psalm 125:2 “As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.”

Proverbs 2:8 “For he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.”

3 W’s

THREE W’s

Psalm 143:10 “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”

The Scene: Three W’s, symbolic of WHAT–WHERE–WHEN; a reminder that we are to seek and follow the Holy Spirit’s lead for our lives,* asking the Holy Spirit for guidance daily, staying tuned into Him, always asking: What? Where? and When? He will lead us through our days as we follow His plan. In this way our day will be successful. * He is the vine we are the branches. We have been grafted into Jesus by His Holy Spirit. (John 15:5)

Psalm 25:9 “He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.”

Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.”(“with my eyes.” –KJV)

When we truly learn to trust the Lord Jesus Christ and His ways we can learn to listen for His voice to guide us.

Isaiah 30:21 “Whether you turn to your right or to your left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ ”

6-43 HOLY SPIRIT WISDOM

TIMELINE OF LIFE

TIMELINE OF LIFE

Romans 8:6-8 “The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.”

The Scene: The black horizontal line (going left to right) represents one’s lifetime and the choices made. The red line represents the worldly-wide path to destruction, which is eternal death in hell with Satan and his followers. The green line shows the way leading to eternal life in heaven. The blue line is the narrow road showing righteousness through operating in the Holy Spirit, being and living according to God’s Holy Word. The next step on life’s journey can be to ask Jesus Christ to make us His bride, as the spirit of Elijah before we go to heaven.

READ Romans 6:1-14 Dead to sin, alive to Christ

1 Peter 2:24-25 ” He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”

Romans 6:17-18 “But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.”

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
