I am glad that you are listening today. I pray that your day is blessed and if it doesn’t seem to be going that way…..Bless it yourself! God lives in you. He gave you His Power so use it!
~ As most of you may know by now, I’ve moved back to the country and it is absolutely gorgeous. God laid it on the owners heart to let me stay here as long as I want and I pray for that man and his wife on a daily basis. God gave me my vision. I go to sleep in total silence, it’s almost eerie but I am getting used to it again and I wake up to a myriad of birds, deer, squirrels, horses and crickets. I think I’ve overloaded my friends with short videos. lol. We have well-water with a softener and it’s awesome. When I first came, I tried to rinse the soap off of my hands, not being very successful until I realized that it is the softener at work. I had to laugh at myself. I love it. Even my nails and face look better. My son came last night and said, “Hows come I can’t rinse the soap off of my hands?” My daughter and I laughed. If you are waiting for your miracle, hang tight because it is on it’s way guys. Ok, enough about my blessing, let’s get to yours amen?
Get your Swords, a drink and a snack, and maybe a tablet and pen and sit back and I’ll be back to delve into the Word entitled today, “Spiritual Traffic“ right after we invoke the Holy Spirit. And by the way, “Happy Birthday Brother Ed Badia!”
We all know what “Traffic” is, it describes vehicles moving on a road or public highway. Such as a stream of heavy traffic. Vehicles, congestion as well. What kind of traffic do you have in your life? Is your spiritual traffic free from congestion and edifying or is it confining and miserable? Have you been studying the word? Do you know what it’s like to receive the blessings of wisdom, instruction and understanding from the father? I pray that you are appreciative of every lesson that God causing you to learn no matter how hard or deep the experience may be or may have been. There’s a reason behind everything that he does for us and to us. You can trust him with your whole heart during the course of your entire life. God will never do anything to harm you. If harm comes to you it is not of the kingdom of God. Take control of that thing and put it where belongs underneath your feet in Jesus name.
Pro 23:23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. What we see here is instruction as what to do to live in inner peace, and to be of a good cheer and success. The word makes it so easy for us to understand, especially for the young people that we have to consider today. The house and Body of Christ is not in order like it used to be years ago. I understand that Legalism is very restrictive but we have gone so far from home nowadays in the church that disrespect now rules. Respect for authorities is thrown out the window.
Our younger generations need to be taught the word of God, righteousness, peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost, If not, the enemy will capture their souls and they will burn in hell for eternity. It is for us, the older generation to teach the younger generation what to do. I would not want to get caught with my hands empty when the Lord comes back. We are getting so lackadaisical in the authoritative arena that some older people don’t even want to correct younger people because it’s too much trouble. Christians have grown so tired that they don’t even want to discuss various subjects anymore. They just have to learn how to constantly put the devil underneath their feet. Many adults talk a good game but they are actually timid deep down inside. And a lot of them do not want to admit it for fear of losing respect. Could this be a sense of falsely earned respect? There are many parents today who want respect but have not done enough to get respect. They want the schools to teach their children everything. They don’t want to teach children about sex, racism, the government, kindness, bullying, boldness at the right times, the word of God, and how to respect the Creator. If you do not teach your children at home the world will teach them and you will definitely be sorry. And this is what’s going on in the world today. Parents are tired and haven’t even done anything to get that way. Disrespect leads to incarceration, and incarceration leads to more disrespect, dishonor, and a disregard for human life. Therefore everyone feels dissed and they are lost in the sauce not knowing where to turn and all the while God is sitting high on his throne waiting for us to ask him for help. He is there for us. He sent his son to die for us. We should not be experiencing all of these failures in life. Christians actually rule. The whole world knows that but sometimes we don’t. That definitely is not Wisdom. We also have to take into consideration that we rule this earth. Other countries are watching us waiting to see the outcome. The way we act affects how other people see us and it affects how they see Jesus as well. It all boils down to how you represent the Kingdom. Do you have positive spiritual traffic in your life or do you have negative spiritual traffic? Are you reading the Bible or a Ouija board?
This is mainly a word to young people. Never stop paying attention to the wisdom, advice, and rebuke from righteous parents who love you. Some young people have put parents on the bad parent list because they didn’t get their way, or they got chastised about something that they had no business saying or doing. But know this, you would not be chastised if you were living holy or righteously and doing what is right. Every time you do wrong you will hear about it. No man is an island and no man stands alone. Sooner or later you WILL get your time of correction. The Elders have already been where you are going and you can save yourself a lot of headache if you listen and learn. The bible is full of experiences of people that we don’t even know who went through things that were also recorded so that we, today would not repeat their wrongdoings. And just think, they didn’t have digital cameras, DVS’s or CD’s and STILL left us a record of rights and wrongs.
Too many young people want to be old too soon. Therefore they try to act old and they may even try to look old but what is missing is wisdom and knowledge inside. Young people nowadays do not want to learn, they do not want to listen, they want to just do what they want to do on their own terms and totally ignore Wisdom. They are so busy doing their own thing that they actually unknowingly and sometimes unknowingly denounce wisdom. Just like God, parents do the same as He does. Great joy, comes to parents who watch their children grow in the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom of God. This verse is telling us to purchase the truth with everything that we can, keep it and do not sell it, do not give it away. Never sell your blessings for a bowl of soup like Esau did. Esau sold his blessings over hunger and his brother Jacob purchased them which was a wise thing to do. So, was Jacob sly or was he wise? The bible tells us to be wise as serpents yet harmless as doves. Mat 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Never become hungry for that which is the least important. What is more important to you? Your flesh or your spirit? The story also lets us know the Esau did not have wisdom. We have to become hungry for the word of God. Become hungry for righteousness. People make Jacob look like a bad person but he was actually wise. With the help of his matriarch, his mother helped him to become rich and well-known all throughout history. And this happened all because Esau was more concerned about his flesh, his stomach. The best thing that you can have in your life right now which is actually a part of the Holy Spirit is, truth, wisdom, and instruction and understanding.
When we look at the scripture that follows Proverbs 23:23 we also see that it says “the father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice that he has a wise child and he that had the wise children shall have joy of them. The father and the mother shall be glad, and she that bear thee shall rejoice. My son give me my heart and let thine eyes observe my ways. This is why God gave us the Bible so that we can learn the ways of the others before us and not make the same mistakes. The Bible is our map and our directions in life. Without it everyone will be lost and that is exactly what is happening today. The government took her out of schools, preachers are taking crosses down off of churches, in the body of Christ just sits back and says nothing. When you do nothing you were part of the problem.
The Compassion of the Lord
Isa 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
Isa 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
Isa 55:3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Isa 55:4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
Isa 55:5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
Isa 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Are you hungry for the proper thing? Those were spiritually thirsty and hungry for God’s blessings and refreshing can obtain them without cost. Money is often spent for things that never satisfy, and the greatest satisfaction is to enter into the redemptive covenant of everlasting life through Christ. King David was given many promises that will be fulfilled during the reign of Christ. David is a witness as he himself gave Messianic prophecies as a leader, and commander over Israel, both in Israel’s past and Israel’s future. In Isaiah’s day, Judah and Jerusalem, which is Israel, was the only nation among surrounding nations in covenant with the true God. The other nations in the region worshiped idols and false gods. This promise is that nations who do not know God will eventually come to know him and will turn their support to Israel.
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
1Ti 2:7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
2Ti 1:11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
2Pe 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
How do you buy wine and milk and water with no money? You purchase it by giving your full-blown attention, ingesting all that it has to offer you, and excepting it as a gift that it is from our most high God.
To ingest means to take food, drink, or another substance into the body by swallowing or absorbing it. To absorb. In the Book of Revelation, John was told by the Angel to take the book and eat it. He was being told to ingest the Word of God.
Rev 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
Rev 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
If you do not ingest the ways of God, your friends and your family, neighborhoods, will not know how to accept God and accept his Son as their Savior. Show them that you know him. You are the Prime Example for some people and as they say, “You may be the only Bible that some people read.”
And don’t worry about your haters God’s got it covered too. Isa 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
The Parable of the Hidden Treasure
Mat 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
The reason for comparing the kingdom to a mustard seed is that both are small and seem insignificant, yet a mustard seed grows into a great tree, and a lump of leven can cause dough to greatly expand. The expansion of Christ’s Kingdom began with a few people in Jerusalem on Pentecost (See Acts 2) but now extends through countless followers throughout the entire world. In verses 44 to 46 of Matthew, these parables refer to leaving all to follow Christ and the gospel.
Countless people leave the gospel to serve their flesh but God is calling you to leave your flesh to serve the gospel.
The parable of the 10 virgins
This is a parable about 10 wise virgins and 10 foolish virgins. It’s been told many different ways throughout the centuries. They had 10 lamps and oil waiting for the bride groom who delayed his coming. The five wise virgins had extra oil and the five foolish ones did not. The foolish virgins asked wise virgins for some of their oil and the wise virgins told them that they did not have enough for both. That my friend is Wisdom. Sometimes in life you have to turn people down especially the ones that take advantage of things and think that they’re going to live off of you. They live however they want to live until push come to shove, they don’t have what they need to sustain their living. They have to learn to take care of themselves. I feel like this is a word to someone. May it bless you. When the announcement was made that the Bridegroom was coming, the lamps of the five foolish brides were out and they needed additional oil. As they were rejected of getting ‘free oil’ from the wise virgins, they went to purchase oil, and while they were busy doing so, the bride groom arrived and took his bride and shut the door and they missed it. They missed the wedding and the festivities. Never miss the festivities that God has for you. They simply were not prepared. This is what God wants us to avoid. Always be prepared. The Bible says even Jesus doesn’t know when the Father is going to send him back.
No One Knows That Day or Hour
Mar 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Mar 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
People argue over pre-trib, mid-trib and post-trib. I end the argument by saying this, “just be prepared.” Be ready for when the bride groom comes.
Keep your lamps filled and your traffic decongested and you will be ready for a lifetime, an eternity of joy and happiness which will not compare to what you have experienced here on Earth. No more, devil, no more demons, no more satan. That’s what the enemy is upset about. That is why you get picked on. Misery loves company.
Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love!
Num 6:24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Thank you for coming on today and I pray that your week goes by Victoriously!
Rev Essie signing off! God bless and have a great day!
