The Law of the Lord Is Perfect (Ps. 19:1-5 ESV)

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,

I’ve always been inspired by the way @BethMooreLPM brings God’s Word to life here on Twitter by sharing what she’s been reading, so here goes my first Twitter thread where I will try to explain why I was completely undone by my time in Scripture a few days ago.
I have been reading through the 13 letters of Paul, and since I read them slightly out of order, I ended in Philemon. I’ll admit that I had NO IDEA who Philemon was. This is not a book of the Bible I have spent much time in; however, it is now one of my favorites.
If you are like me and don’t know much about Philemon, here is a quick overview: Philemon (pronounced Fuh-Lee-Muhn) was a slave owner who lived in Colossae and was friends with Paul. One of his slaves, Onesimus, stole from him and ran away, which was punishable by death.

@JessReports compiles heartbreaking stories in @HuffPost today. Agonizing - maddening - futile - lost. Families of #Qbelievers say they're unrecognizable to their loved ones. They've been lied to, exploited, & #brainwashed by floods of #disinformation /1…
SAM - "I'm going to keep trying, I have to. I don't want to have no parents". He expresses this immense sadness that since his father died he is now living with the fact that he is losing his mother to #Qanon /2
ELAINE - "You don't want to believe that someone you love is this disconnected from reality" she says of her mom. Like many, arguing w/#Qbelievers is like "trying to convince someone of their religion being wrong". This is what a #cult does, it grabs hold of those we love. /3

1. Faith is meant for spiritual things.

Faith is misused and abused.

Using faith on earth w/o rigorous testing is damaging that what God gave you to connect you to Him.
2. Think of #Gambling...doesn't the house always win?

What is going through the mind of those who sit at the #SlotMachines?

Whoa!!!!!!! Think of the #Internet.

Shouldn't we #GuardYourHeart?

What of #Hope?

I often think of the #BookOfJob #OldTestament.
3. Are you tossed around by the wind and waves?

Ephesians 4:14
"Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming."

Yesterday's Bible study, Romans ch. 1:1-17 - (Part 1 and 2)

Study note at:

#awesome #Lord #JesusChrist
I have waited for so long to be able to study this Letter deeper and systematic. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for this chance to be able to sit under Your teaching of this Masterpiece. I have waited for years and I am not going to waste this chance.
Let You Lord Jesus, Your Presence, quality time with the Holy Spirit, Your Words, Teachings, time for personal Bible Study, to have my quiet time, time of prayers, worship, praising You personally, the ministry we have agreed to start, an intercession for Your churches,

The two last chapters of this great book.
This is our birthright, that we are the conqueror of every challenge, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, with this mission, to fulfill God's calling. Every person in His Kingdom,
after he/she was born again, received callings from God,
according to the Scripture and their's specific calling. Just like Apostle Paul, had been called to be the apostle for the gentiles as his' specific calling. He obeyed it and faithful to it until his last breath.

Without question, unceasing #prayer is the most difficult thing in the world - especially if we consider our faintheartedness - and how swiftly our attention flees during the saying of one Hail Mary & if we remember the great weariness brought on by prolonged prayer ...
... and how our head hurts praying for a long time & how we cannot do as much as we would like.

In light of these & similar hardships, it is clear that unceasing prayer is akin to death & the most impossible advice that could be given to us.
If we consider, however, that #Scripture addresses those who do all things in Him who comforts them, meaning in #God, then we ought not to say that is is difficult, for the one who offers the advice, #Christ, will provide all the needed strength.

Light in the midst of darkness ..
That's how when we are energized by #God .. in the midst of trouble ..

2 Timothy 1: 1-9 #Bible #Scripture

Job described the human condition with these words: “Man is born for trouble, as sparks fly upward” (Job 5:7).. 1/n
This was certainly the situation for Timothy, a young pastor/elder trying to protect the church from persecution and false doctrine. And as a result, he was becoming discouraged and found his passion waning.. #Bible #Scripture
2 Timothy 1:1-9 .. 2/n
Things are no different today, right?Overwhelming troubles can cause us to grow weak and lose our zeal for #God, His Word, and prayer. The solution for us today is the same one Paul gave Timothy all those years ago.. #Bible #Scripture

THREAD: The Chronicler’s Genealogies.

In times of worry and panic, it can be helpful to think about something completely different for a while.

To that end, may I commend to you some thoughts on the genealogies contained in 1 Chronicles 1–9.

#BibleStudy #Chronicles
Biblical genealogies aren’t merely records of history.

They have a purpose, a message, and a theology to convey.

And the genealogies in 1 Chronicles are no exception.
In a future thread, I hope to zoom in on in Benjamin’s genealogy,

which is scattered throughout 1 Chronicles 7–9.

But, here, I’ll share a few thoughts on the big picture of the Chronicler’s genealogies.

Though this is an old song, every time I heard this song, I always got emotional and encouraged. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
That every obedience to His Words has written in His Book. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Someone said this, Live for a higher purpose. Yes, let's live for a higher purpose, work in such..
things I will set to you, enter into the joy of your Master".⁣

This is the ultimate goal I am going to pursue. To hear those words in Heaven. I will, by His Grace, to work in such a way according to His Will, His Word, and His purpose, as long as I breathe.⁣

The same meaning for the word "Heart" in Matt. 9:4 (καρδία - kardia)
It turns out that all feelings, minds, intellectual, character, inner self, and so on are in our Heart, not only mind

#BibleVerse #Scripture #blessing ImageImageImage
That's why...Do not "follow your heart"
Follow Scripture, follow the Holy Spirit's guidance obediently& faithfully, listen and obey!
"it's deceitful above all things"

#BibleVerse #blessing #Scripture #DailyBread #holiness #obedience #follow #LordJesus #wholeheartedly
About intuitions, let the Holy Spirit guides it also!
That's why immediately the moment after we open our eyes, we need to pray, to Pray in Tongue

And then to worship God, to pray, to praise Him.
Next, reading the Bible!

“Why do you think we call the last century the great American century? Because AMERICA SAVED THE WORLD -- not once, not twice, but THREE times from the evils of Nazism, communism, and despotism. If you want a little piece of evidence, here’s one fact to show you ... different the American value system is: We’re the only people on the face of the planet, in the history of the entire world, to hold a technological advantage in war AND NOT USE IT FOR CONQUEST, but instead use it to free and liberate people around the world.
In 1945 we had the bomb no one else had.We could have taken that weapon and forced every nation on the planet to submit to us.We could have controlled the entire planet-that’s been the way of the world throughout history! Any time a nation had an advantage in war what do they do?

Is anything too hard for the Lord?... Yes... Amen!!

The omnipotent God!

Once, last year I talked to God about the new year (the next year, or this year, 2019), we talked about some things, and I remembered I smiled - or giggled- when I heard what He said to me, that
"a new year" according to Human's rules didn't mean anything to Him or it wasn't a big deal...

I was, once again, made aware, with whom I spoke... An almighty God, and Omnipotent God who cannot be limited by anything or be confined to anything, by the rules or the ways of
men... He even doesn't deserve to be compared by it, with us, mere human ... He is too great!
Unlimited, Wonderful, and Powerful God we served

God's Love Letter - From Genesis to Revelation (by Ps. Philip Mantofa)

Psalms 119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

- Writer : Moses in the Mount of Sinai
- Purpose : Exposes the origin of the world and human, and explains God Image
in the more personal way, who wants to have a fellowship with human eagerly

Genesis 1:27; 12:1-3
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from
thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee

Heb. 6:4-6; 10:26-27

Church who hear God’s Word, experience the Holy Spirit, and yet still rebel. As they continue to rebel, their hearts become hardened so much that they cannot repent. These are professing believers who never truly knew Christ. They are like the Pharisees... Image
... who witnessed Christ’s miracles and heard his Word, and yet, with that knowledge, rejected Christ—committing the blasphemy of the Spirit (Matt. 12:31-32). It would be like Judas who tasted of the Holy Spirit and cast out demons and yet was still a child of the...
..... devil (John 6:70). Though he received great knowledge, he never truly accepted Christ or repented of his sins.

- Ps. Gregory Brown…

Mazmur 75:6-7 Sebab bukan dari timur atau dari barat dan bukan dari padang gurun datangnya peninggian itu,
tetapi Allah adalah Hakim: direndahkan-Nya yang satu dan ditinggikan-Nya yang lain. Image
Psalms 75:6-7 (KJV) For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Psalms 75:6-7 (NLT)
For no one on earth—from east or west, or even from the wilderness— should raise a....
defiant fist.
It is God alone who judges; he decides who will rise and who will fall.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it -
