    Everything that Ezekiel had ever anticipated and prepared for unraveled right before his eyes, when he and many others were taken captive by Babylon. All he had ever known was serving God in and around the temple and his chance to be part of the priesthood ripped away. He along with the entire nation, couldn't even imagine how to serve God in these circumstances. Much to Ezekiel's surprise, God appears to him in captivity and shows him a purpose that would far exceed the "normal" life he could have had. God tells Ezekiel that he would still be a priest set apart for His Kingdom and be a prophet called to stand out for Him. God invites him into an experience like none other. In this series, we will learn how Ezekiel experienced God in unexpected, yet marvelous ways. In this introduction, hear how Ezekiel begins to see the Glory of God amidst the ruin of his circumstances.

    Performing true Humility! Part Two

    Magnificent Life

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 6, 2022 4:57


    "For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation." Psalm 149:4 One of the most admirable characteristics a person can have is humility. Unfortunately, it is often underrated and misunderstood. Humility is not thinking less of yourself but rather thinking of yourself less. It is not about putting yourself down but rather lifting others. True humility is not thinking you are better than anyone else but recognizing that we are all equal in the eyes of God. It is not being boastful or prideful but being modest and unassuming. As we can see from Philemon 1:1-25, Paul instructed Onesimus to return to his master and also informed Philemon through a letter that he wanted Onesimus to be treated as a brother, not a slave. He also asks Philemon to forgive Onesimus for any wrong he may have done. Truly, to bring a sacred bond in this relationship requires one to be humble. Philemon must willingly sacrifice his ego for godly relationships, while Onesimus is willing to be obedient to those in authority over him. Philemon 1:16 says, "He is no longer like a slave to you. He is more than a slave; he is a beloved brother, especially to me. Now he will mean much more to you, both as a man and as a brother in the Lord." As Apostle Paul encouraged both men (especially Philemon) to display true humility in their interactions with one another, likewise, I encourage you to show true humility in your marriage, family, employee, the boss at work, and friends. True humility is not about looking down on others or thinking that we are better than they are. Instead, it is about recognizing our sinfulness and shortcomings and recognizing that we are not worthy of God's love and grace. God desires to use humble people to accomplish great things. He has a special purpose for us and wants us to use our gifts and talents to further His Kingdom. When we walk in humility, we are willing to do whatever He asks us to do and receive His blessings. The gospel of Christ transforms human relationships, as we can see from Philemon the master and Onesimus, who happens to be his servant, seeing that they have been united with Christ and now they both belong to the family of God. Therefore, let us all strive to walk in true humility and allow God to use us to do great things. Amen. Psalm 25:9 says, "God leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way." Amen. Let us pray, Holy Spirit, help me remain humble so I can maintain a godly relationship. Every arrogant and self-centered spirit stealing my joy, I wash you out with the blood of Jesus. As the stars and moon shine, may your life shine into a new dawn of blessings, glory, joy, honor, and victory in the name of Jesus. Amen. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/pastor-divineo/support

    Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.”  Luke 12:32This short statement from Jesus reveals three things to us.First of all, we hear Jesus offer the familiar reminder that we ought not allow fear to take hold of our lives.  There are so many things in life that can have the effect of causing fear, worry, anxiety and the like.  Overcoming fear is a matter of humility, in that humility enables us to turn our eyes from ourselves and the problems we face and to put our eyes upon our Lord.  When we put our eyes on Him, fear dissipates and trust takes its place.Second, this is also a very tender statement from Jesus in that He calls His disciples, and all of us, His “little flock.”  This is a term of endearment and reveals our Lord's gentle and compassionate heart.  This term of endearment reveals not only that we belong to Jesus, it also reveals how His love for us is intimate and heartfelt.  If we understand this love of His we will be compelled to love Him back with the same depth of intimacy.  Lastly, this line points us to the Kingdom of our Father in Heaven.  The Father, whom we must trust and with whom we must have an intimate relationship, invites us to share in His most glorious Kingdom.  His Kingdom becomes ours, and when we can see and understand how glorious this calling is, we will be filled with hope and excitement as we seek to obtain it.Reflect, today, upon the heartfelt invitation of our compassionate Lord Jesus to put your eyes upon His Kingdom.  As you do so, allow this revelation to cast out fear from your life, strengthening you to overcome that burden.  Put your trust in God and allow Him to transform you.My Divine Shepherd, I accept Your invitation to put my trust in You.  Please free me from the many fears that I am tempted with in life.  Help me to have confidence in You and Your grace as I seek to put my eyes on the glory of Your Kingdom.  Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2022 My Catholic Life!

    Behind the seismic shifts that the world is handling, and all the social, political and military challenges it faces year after year, God is working His purposes out. Life, even in the relatively comfortable West, seems more fragile than it did, and certainties have become uncertainties, but the day is coming when the Earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God. (Hab. 2:14) This song by Linda Entwistle is based on Joel's prophecy which speaks of a war that puts to an end all wars, for it culminates in the return of the Lord Jesus to Earth. (Joel 3) As Linda put it, “As the threat of war hangs heavy over the world in these days, this song looks at and beyond the catalytic events that will unfurl in the land of Israel, and affect the whole world. There is so much that the Lord is doing as He prepares to usher in an entirely new phase of His Kingdom on Earth when He will put right all that has taken the world so far from his ways, en route to fulfilling the glorious promise of Isaiah 65:17-18 and Revelation 21 concerning the new heavens and the new earth that He will create, in which He makes everything new.'

    The New Testament describes baptisms in plural—there is more than one type of baptism. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson discusses John's baptism, Christian baptism, and Holy Spirit baptism. Each type of baptism serves a different purpose in our Christian lives. Jesus submitted Himself to be baptized by John, and He commanded His disciples to wait to be baptized in the Holy Spirit before they left Jerusalem. Baptism was important to Jesus, and it's wise to learn why it should be important to us, too. If we choose to yield to the power of God and follow His commands, we help His Kingdom come and His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.   To support this ministry and help us continue to reach people all around the world, click here: allenjackson.com/podcastdonate

    Our Realities Speak to Our Real Priorities MESSAGE SUMMARY: From the Gospel of Luke (12:32f): Our Realities Speak to Our Real Priorities In Luke 12:32f, Jesus speaks to His priorities for us by declaring that He has given His followers His kingdom. Living in His Kingdom sets Jesus' priorities for us. The goal for us is to live to kingdom priorities and not our own priorities. In Rick Warren's book The Purpose Driven Life, Rev. Warren presents five kingdom priorities: 1) worship; 2) fellowship; 3) discipleship; 4) ministry; and 5) evangelism. By being in fellowship with God, we can discern His priorities for our lives. Luke 12 speaks to two priorities for God's kingdom: 1) being ready followers, and 2) and being a responsible steward. To be a ready follower of Jesus, we must: 1) be ready to give; 2) is ready to go and serve the Lord; and 3) be ready to greet the Master. For the kingdom priority of being a ready steward, we must answer the question: “After being entrusted with God by much, are we being responsible for His gifts?”. With our trust in God, God, the Creator of the Universe trusts us – is your life worthy of God's trust? It is a deep privilege to know God's will for us and His trust for us. God will give us the tools and power to be good stewards of the trust that He has provided us if we are in fellowship with Him – God wants to bless us if we seek and follow His will for us. “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." (Romans 14:17).   TODAY'S PRAYER: Keeping the Sabbath, Lord, will require a lot of changes in the way I am living life. Teach me, Lord, how to take the next step with this in a way that fits my unique personality and situation. Help me to trust you with all that will remain unfinished and to enjoy my humble place in your very large world. In Jesus' name, amen.    Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 129). Zondervan. Kindle Edition. TODAY'S AFFIRMATION: I affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I AM RIGHTEOUS IN GOD'S EYES. God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21 SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV): Luke 12:32-48; Romans 14:17; 1 John 3:1; Psalms 147:1-20.

    Rev. Andrew Preus, pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church in New Haven, MO, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Psalm 145. The structure of Psalm 145 as an acrostic poem serves to underline the complete nature of God's reign as King over all. His Kingdom is eternal, calling forth praise from all people. Doxology and doctrine go hand-in-hand as one generation tells the next of who God is and what He has done. The greatness of God's kingdom is His righteousness, given by grace for Christ's sake. For this righteousness, all of His works praise Him, because He continues to care for all His creation. He is near to all who call on Him, for Jesus is Immanuel. At the resurrection of all flesh, He will bring His righteous judgment and all will praise His holy name forever. Join Sharper Iron during the month of July to study several Psalms. In the Psalter, God speaks His Word to us and teaches us how to speak back to Him in prayer. Even in the great variety of the Psalms, each one points us to our Savior, Jesus Christ.

    One of the biggest challenges any artist faces is getting their art out in front of the people so they can get paid for their work.  Galleries and exhibitions are hard to come by, especially for artists who may live outside of the big cities.  Promoting your work on your own website or Instagram can lead to sales, but you have to put in a lot of work to get noticed.  A lot of artists take commissions as a large source of their income, but even at that, your customers have to be able to find you to commission you for work.  Rei Llazani, my guest on this episode of The Thriving Christian Artist podcast, has come up with a very clever solution to match artists with customers looking to commission high-quality art.  Rei has created MadeMay.com, a freelance platform that enables expert artists, artisans, and creatives to connect with clients looking for custom, made-to-order masterpieces.  If you're a painter, sculptor, designer, voiceover artist, or any other type of creative who is exploring the possibilities of doing commission work, you'll want to listen to my conversation with Rei.  (And if you're looking to commission art yourself, MadeMay.com should be your first stop!) To find out more, visit:  https://www.mademay.com/  https://www.instagram.com/mademayusa/ https://www.instagram.com/reillazani/ ====================When you're ready to stop striving and start thriving, here are 4 other ways I can help: 1️⃣ Join Us in November - Every artist was created by God to create with Him to both experience and release His Light and Life through their creative expression.

    “Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls.  When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.”  Matthew 13:45-46There are many beautiful insights we can take from this passage.  Certainly we can see the Kingdom of Heaven as analogous to that “Pearl of Great Price!”  But the passage actually states that the Kingdom of Heaven is analogous to the “merchant searching for fine pearls.”  This is a revealing fact.One insight this offers us is that the Kingdom of Heaven is found in our diligent search.  We search the mystery of Heaven and it is this search that, in and of itself, presents to us God's Kingdom.  Speaking of the “search for God” is another way of saying that God is a profound Mystery of Faith, a Mysterium Fidei as we say in Mass.  As a divine “Mystery” it's important to understand that we can never fully “find” God.  We certainly can find Him, understand Him, come to know Him and give our lives to Him.  But we can never do so fully.  The truth is that the more we come to know God, the more we seek Him and the more we seek Him the more we realize we do not fully know Him.  But this revelation draws us ever more deeply into the life of God and the acquisition of the Kingdom of Heaven.The discovery of the beauty, value, mystery, power, and glory of God and His Kingdom is what life must be about.  We must spend this life searching, finding, and searching more.  This is what we will do in Heaven.  Heaven will be a moment of the full revelation of the Kingdom and the inner life of God, but we will discover in this revelation that we will eternally enter more deeply into God and His glorious presence.Reflect, today, upon the search that you embark on in your life.  Is it a diligent search for God?  Or do you grow slack in this endeavor?  Recommit yourself to a wholehearted search for God and you will find that this search is actually a discovery of the glories of the Kingdom of Heaven.My eternal King, I love You and desire to love You all the more.  Please fill me with zeal and hope as I seek You.  May my wholehearted search for You reveal to me the mystery of Your glorious inner life.  As I discover You, help me to seek You all the more.  Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2022 My Catholic Life!

How do we break the cycle? *Sermon Notes: * Genesis 38:1-26 Deuteronomy 25:5 Ruth 4:11-13 1 John 5:17 Implications: 1. While the world judges your every action, God judges your heart. Set your heart on His Kingdom and His righteousness. 2. When you don't invite God into your decisions, oftentimes you create new (and potentially bigger) problems. 3.

    “Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?” They said to him, “We can.” He replied, “My chalice you will indeed drink, but to sit at my right and at my left, this is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.”  Matthew 20:22b-23This was a very gentle rebuke by Jesus.  The mother of James and John asked Jesus for a favor.  She wanted her sons to sit at His right and left in His Kingdom.  Jesus gently said, “You do not know what you are asking” and then went on to speak the passage above.“You do not know what you are asking.”  Why did Jesus say this?  In part, it's because the path to glory, that is, the path to sitting at His right and left in the Kingdom, is the path of the Cross.  It's the path of freely embracing the sufferings of the Cross with Jesus.  It's not possible to enter into His glory without first walking with Him through His death.So He asks these Apostles, “Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?”  In other words, can you embrace my Cross?  Can you embrace my suffering?  Can you walk with me through my ultimate sacrifice and participate in that sacrifice by also offering your lives?The Apostles affirm that they can and, indeed, they eventually do follow Jesus in His sacrifice by giving themselves completely to others. Can you drink that chalice?  Can you willingly accept the Cross in your life?  Can you endure hardship, sacrifice and, perhaps, even persecution for being a follower of Jesus?  Can you walk with Him through His suffering?  If the answer is “Yes,” then you will share in His glory.  Perhaps that glory will not be to sit at His right and left, but it will be a glory beyond your wildest imagination.  It's worth it and it's an invitation that you will never regret accepting.Lord, I do desire to drink the chalice You drank.  I desire to receive Your Precious Body and Blood and in that reception to receive the strength and grace I need to follow You in Your sufferings.  As I follow You in Your sufferings, help me also to share in Your glory.  Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2022 My Catholic Life!

In today's episode I read from Day 15 of FAVOR a YouVersion Devotional in this episode we learn that God's Favor is given to us by sometimes having a position of humility. There are time where God doesn't always award in His Kingdom position or status but servanthood and considering others above one's self is the better position. We live in a world that so many achievements and status is looked upon in high regard, but consider what God has to say in the example of the parable He spoke of Matthew 20:1-16. In the end it's God who will decide what and who is important, just be thankful that you and I apart of God's glorious family and be thankful for God's unmerited favor, love and grace! Hallelujah!

    What does scripture really say about women in YHWH's (The LORD's) Kingdom & Y'shua's (Jesus') Ministry. This a beautiful look at how our Messiah and Redeemer made sure not to diminish or trivialize a woman's contribution to His Kingdom. In this video we seek to biblically answer the following questions: Is it biblical for women to be silent in the Church or the Assembly as Paul suggests in 1 Corinthians 14 except perhaps in teaching Sunday school to children or singing in the choir as many believe? Or at the other end of the spectrum should a woman be head of an entire church or assembly as head pastor or priestess? Or does the biblical guideline for women fall somewhere in the middle?

    Alamo Ranch Community Church (Sermon Audio)

    Hebrews tells us that God shakes things so that we will know what belongs to His Kingdom and what belongs to the kingdom of this world. We live in a time where it seems like everything is being shaken and it truly seems difficult to know where to find firm footing. The writer of Ecclesiastes looked in many places and in many directions only to come to the conclusion that all was vanity. In Psalm 52 we are given a picture of what it looks like to see God as truly our rock and salvation as well as a picture of what it looks like to react was one who is “shaken”. One of the great dangers of our time is that in our culture it seems perfectly acceptable to be shaken all the time and still believe that you are a Christian. When the Lord calls us to speak the truth, may we we be living the lives to go along with it. It would seem that as believers, if this was ever going to be the case, we must take up the discipline of silence and grow in the ability to pour out our hearts before Him. It will be in those spaces where we can come to know Him, in the midst of all things shaking, as the true and powerful One Who is working out His steadfast love. This becomes our firm foundation as the things and people around us continue to be blown and tossed. May we, the people of God serve as a non-shaken presence pointing others to the Mighty One who saves.

    Proverbs 16 tells us, All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. That passage describes God's view of success, and it's quite different from the world's view. We'll discuss that today on MoneyWise. The world's view of success is pretty obvious. It's having enough money to do or buy the things you want, like a big house, a fancy car, or the latest clothing fashions. You have to wonder then why so many successful people are also miserable. The answer's quite simple. They've discovered that money and possessions can't buy happiness. It's often said we have a God-shaped hole in our souls. You can pour many things into that emptiness, a big-screen TV, a new set of graphite golf clubs. Sometimes this is called retail therapy, but those are just temporary patches over the hole. What's really sad is that many Christians also fall into this trap of success by the world's standards. They've bought into the lies that money and material things bring happiness. Advertising tells us this every day. Sometimes it can be a spiritual decision to just turn off the TV. In Matthew 6, Jesus warns us, Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven Now, that doesn't mean that Christians should stay poor and lowly to be successful in God's eyes. Here, attitude counts far more than action. 1 Cor. 13 says, And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. God often provides an extra measure of resources beyond our needs, in the form of money or other assets, so that we can be generous toward His Kingdom. But He wants us to do that with the right attitude, out of love for Him, and others less fortunate. In Matthew 25, Jesus says that what you do for the least of these, you do for me. He goes on to say, Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink It's important to understand that God often blesses us in ways that have nothing to do with material things. Loving relationships with family and friends, a strong, nurturing church, and most of all, a deeper relationship with Him. That's the true blessing and true success. So how do we obtain the good things God promises? In Matthew 6, Jesus says, But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. It's also important to note that we can never do these things perfectly, because no one's been perfect since the Fall. But again, attitude is more important than results. God simply wants us to diligently seek Him and his righteousness. That means we fully trust in God and we're willing to make things right when we fail. We're quick to humble ourselves continually before the throne of God. Psalm 84 also says, Blessed is the man who trusts in You. God has special plans for each of us that we can't fulfill without fully trusting in Him. He promises not to withhold any good thing from us when we trust Him fully and seek His will for our lives. And we must always acknowledge that any success we achieve comes from God. To help us be a success in God's eyes we must remember three key words surrender, obedience, and persistence. Surrender means accepting that God owns it all. We're only temporary managers or stewards of what he gives us. Obedience means being willing to use God's resources as He directs. And persistence means sticking with the first two items no matter what worldly stresses or pressure we encounter. Nehemiah 6 asks, Should someone in my position run from danger? Finally, in Acts 21, we see Paul responding to disciples who wanted him to stay away from Jerusalem for his safety. He says, Why all this weeping? I am ready to be jailed but even to die for the sake of the Lord Jesus. Now, that's surrender, obedience and persistence put into action. And when we're successful in God's eyes, we'll know true peace and contentment and that's something worth striving for everyday.

    In the entertainment world, someone who can sing, dance, and act is referred to as a “triple threat.”  Scribes were the triple threats of Bible times.  They were artists, writers, historians, and archivists.  They were a bit of everything under the sun - polymaths in the truest sense of the word.That's why I love that my guest on the Thriving Christian Artist podcast, Theresa Harvard Johnson, is a triple threat for sure!Theresa doesn't fit neatly into one box or label - she's not a writer OR an artist OR a historian.  She's all of the above!  All of the roles of a traditional scribe are within Theresa, and they are all a part of her life every day.  In this episode of the Thriving Christian Artist, you're going to hear about all the ways Theresa is sharing her scribal gifts with the world - teaching, mentoring, illustrating, writing and performing poetry, spoken word pieces, and more.  She just loves using her creativity, being around other creatives, and bringing her guidance to the creative community. If you feel like you're being called to use your gifts in a million different ways at once, listen to Theresa.  She'll show you how it's done.  Feeling called to be a modern-day scribe, or just want to see more of what Theresa's all about?  Check out The School of the Scribe at https://courses.schoolofthescribe.org/.====================When you're ready to stop striving and start thriving, here are 4 other ways I can help: 1️⃣ Join Us in November - Every artist was created by God to create with Him to both experience and release His Light and Life through their creative expression.

    There are people out there, especially on the internet, who will tell you that they can show you how to quadruple your art sales and make millions of dollars from selling your art...if you will just follow their super-special marketing techniques.  But here's the truth:  I don't care how great of a marketer you are.  If your art isn't up to snuff, it ain't gonna sell.   Marketing isn't the secret foolproof key to unlocking success in the art world.  There are three aspects of your life that have to be in alignment in order to thrive as an artist:  your faith, your art, and your business.  These three work together to get the results that you want to get.  If any of these are out of tune, you are bound to hit roadblocks and experience a lot of frustration.  I call it The Trinity Effect, and I am going to tell you all about it on this episode of Five-Minute Mentoring.  Check it out!  Ready to build a business that helps you thrive spiritually, artistically, and financially?  Here are 4 ways I can help: 1️⃣ Join Us in November - Every artist was created by God to create with Him to both experience and release His Light and Life through their creative expression.
