He Paid The Price – Part 2
During His physical Manifestation on Earth over 2,000 years ago, Messiah
(which means Anointed One) Was Named with the Hebrew Name
YESHUA. That Name is derived from two Hebrew words Jehovah and Y’
Shua. The word Jehovah Is one of the Names Of GOD, and the word
Y’Shua means “Salvation”. They were put together in conjunction to form
The Name Jehovah-Shua, which is transliterated “GOD Saves”, or more
closely, “With GOD Is Salvation”. This Name was shortened to Jehoshua (or
Yehoshua) and then again to Joshua or Yeshua. (The letters “J” and “Y”
were oftentimes interchanged in Hebrew, largely depending upon the
geographical location of the users.) What is important for us to observe here
is that GOD Has Sent His Savior and Deliverer to us in The Person Of
YESHUA or JESUS (which is the Greek transliteration of The Name). (Hab
3:13; Luke 2:29-30)
What He Has Come to Deliver or Save us from is sin, for sin separates us
from The Holy GOD, and to Him, this is unacceptable. GOD Has Created us
in His Image and Likeness, and Gave us dominion over the Earth; and Filled
the Earth and Waters with Provision for us to eat and drink. His Desire Is To
Have Communion with us (in the Spirit realm), and to Share Heaven and
The Universe with us in Paradise for all Eternity. What A Blessed Plan! ☺

In the account of The Birth Of JESUS (Mt 1:18-25), an angel of The Lord
spoke to Joseph (Mary’s betrothed spouse), and told him that the child that
Mary was carrying Was Conceived by The HOLY SPIRIT Of GOD. The
angel also told him “…you shall call His Name JESUS, for He Will Save
His people from their sins.” The Old Testament reads… “Behold, the virgin
shall be with Child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His Name
Immanuel,” which is translated, “GOD With us.” (Isa 7:14; 8: 8)
So GOD Has Come To Live with us… and to Save us from our sins. This
is undoubtedly the most Blessed Gift imaginable! GOD Loves us enough to
Redeem us back to Himself, by Providing Atonement for our sins (by The
Sacrifice of His Son’s Life), and by Sending His HOLY SPIRIT to Lead
us… Empowering us to overcome the temptations to commit sin.
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son Is Given; and the government
will be upon His Shoulder. And His Name will be called Wonderful,
Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of
Peace. Of the increase of His Government and Peace there will be no end,
upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to Order it and Establish it
with Judgment and Justice from that time forward, even forever. The Zeal
Of The Lord Of Hosts Will Perform this.” (Isa 9:6-7) (caps ours)
This Is GOD’s Plan for His Creation. ☺ Isn’t It Wonderful?!

He Paid The Price – Part 1
In this exposition, I will discuss two separate topics, and the relationship
between them. The first one addresses the subject of vengeance, and what
The Messiah Teaches about it in The Word of GOD, The HOLY Bible. The
second topic is in regard to The Names of The Messiah.
Billions of dollars have been, and continue to be spent in the making, and
in the viewing of movies and books which advocate the pursuit of “getting
even.” (Vengeance) Convinced that ‘somebody needs to teach that *!%@^#
a lesson’, the proponents watch (or read) with smug self-righteousness as the
“hero” executes the sentence. This attitude is quite antiquated, and I here’s
the reason why.
Over two thousand years ago, GOD Replaced the Covenant that He Made
with Israel and Judah with a new one. (Jer 31:31-4) Through the Atoning
Life of JESUS, GOD Has Superseded the “eye for an eye” justice system
with this one: “…Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless
those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who
strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also.” (Luke 6:27b-29b)
The letters in red were spoken by The Only Begotten Son Of GOD,
YESHUA (JESUS), The Christ (which is the transliteration from the Hebrew
word Mashiach, which means Messiah). “Therefore, be merciful, just as
your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged.
Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be
forgiven.” (Luke 6:36-7) “Vengeance is Mine, and recompense;” (Deut
32:35a) “… I will repay, … says the Lord.” (Jer 51:24) “Repay no one evil
for evil… Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to
wrath;” (Rom 12:17a; 19a, b)
Retaliation may be at the top of mans list of responses to the trespasses of
others, but it is at the bottom of our Merciful GOD’s. Inasmuch as He Is
Eternally Benevolent, He Sent His Only Begotten Son to suffer the
consequences of our transgressions, and to make Atonement for us. JESUS
Has Borne the weight of the sins of the whole world. He Knew that He
Would Have To Do This before any part of our Universe was even Created.
He Knew that man was incapable of ruling himself, which is why He Was
Saddened when Israel asked Him for a King (like the Gentile nations set up
for themselves). We were never Meant to live outside of Communion with
GOD. He Purposed for us to Become One Spirit with Him, right from the
begenning of His Decision to Create us. (in His Image and Likeness.)
Fortunately, though… In His Infinite Wisdom (Knowing that we would
fail in our attemt to self-govern), GOD Has Made This Pardon available only
to those who will Believe, and not be ashamed to admit that they have faith
in GOD’s Son as their Redeemer and Savior. After all, if we didn’t need a
Savior… One Wouldn’t Have Needed To Have Been Given.

Praise GOD for His Omnisience! (His Ability To Know All Things,
including the future.) Readers, please remember this Truth from The Holy
Word Of GOD: “… if you confess with your mouth The Lord JESUS and
believe in your heart that GOD Has Raised Him from the dead, you will be
saved.” (Rom 10:9) (caps ours)
Halleluiah!! (Praise be to GOD!!) Honor, and Glory, and thanksgiving
Belong to The King Of Glory!!! Amen. ☺

The Prize – Part 3
When we consider our eternal destiny, two distinct possibilities become
apparent. One is a peaceful, Blessed, co-existence with The Merciful GOD
in Paradise; and the other, a perpetual “wailing and gnashing of teeth” in
“the furnace of fire”. (Mt 13: 42, 50) Paradise as The Place that GOD Will
Bring to the earth after He Is Finished Separating “the sheep from the
goats”. The “furnace of fire” is the same place as “the lake of fire”, which I
wrote about in Part 2. It is a place of eternal separation from GOD’s Love
and Mercy, and from His Peace and Joy. It is where The Lord Will Cast the
Devil, and all those who follow him., Tormenting them for their evil
intentions and actions. GOD Does Not Want for any of us to go there, and
He Has Provided The Way for us to avoid this tragic fate, and Has Invited us
into His Kingdom Of Love. (2 Pe 3: 9d, Jn 3:16-21) We accept His
Invitation by allowing His HOLY SPIRIT to Lead our lives, and to
Empower us to overcome the temptations of sin. After all, how would we fit
into a Life in Paradise, if we weren’t able to overcome our sinful nature?
So now… seeing that GOD Is (A Holy) Spirit, we inadvertantly separate
ourselves from Him when we do anything which is not holy. Holiness is a
spiritual condition, and we have a Spiritual Communion with GOD when we
too, are holy. If we commit sin, the only way for us to re-establish that
Communion is to confess our sin to Him and to ask for His Forgiveness.
Then, we determine, with The Help of The HOLY SPIRIT, not to commit
that sin any more, and to become Sanctified and Consecrated to The Lord.
God Is Imploring us to receive The Salvation of His Son’s Atoning Death,
and to receive His Power so that we can overcome the temptations which
would cause us to become separated from Him. He Created us for that very
Purpose… to Love us and Bless us as His very Children. It is not a difficult
concept to understand, especially if you have children of your own.
GOD’s Son Has already Suffered and “Paid the price” that was necessary
to restore our everlasting Communion with Hiself. Let’s not allow the
attributes, talents and endowments which GOD Has Given us to become a
hindrance to our Relationship with Him (by being high-minded or
conceited). Let’s be thankful for all the indescribable Gifts which GOD Has
Provided. He Loves us with A Love that cannot be measured. All we need to
do is to Believe that He Is our Creator, and that He Loves us Dearly. By
Believing in His Love (which was Evidenced by His Giving His Life for us
Through His Son JESUS), we allow Him (by His HOLY SPIRIT) to Help us
become holy and perfect, as He Is. After this “Process”, whereby we are
made holy, we will be ready to see our Heavenly FATHER face to Face.
In the altercation (the battle between JESUS and the devil) for your eternal
destiny, you are the referee. You decide which Spiritual Proponent
(Fighter) is allowed pre-eminence in your life; (that is, who you allow to
influence your actions), and by doing so, you determine which One Has the
victory over your Eternal Future. You can see now, that by the decisions that
you make in life, it is you who chooses where you will spend eternity. I
have already declared that our spirit has been Created to live forever, so your
spirit is eternal. GOD Has Clearly Revealed His Will for our future in
these scriptures… 11 “For this commandment which I command you today is
not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that you
should say, ‘Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may
hear it and do it?’ 13 Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go
over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ 14 But the
word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.
15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I
command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to
keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live
and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go
to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are
drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I announce to you
today that you shall surely perish; 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses
today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing
and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your
descendants may live; 20 that you may love the Lord your God, that you may
obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the
length of your days; (Deuteronomy 30) (bolding ours) ☺
Surely, readers, this Bible prophecy will shortly come to pass…
“The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord
and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (Rev 11:15d, e)
Who will win The Prize of your eternal life?  The choice is yours…

GOD Talk Discussion 6
by Reverend Robert Bart
The Prize – Part 2
In this discussion, I will introduce The Defending and Everlasting
Champion, YESHUA HaMashiach (JESUS, The Messiah/The Christ).
Besides The Names that I have used in the previous discussions, He Is also
called Wonderful… Counselor… Mighty GOD… Everlasting Father… The
Prince of Peace. (Isa 9:6) There are many others. If you want to know them,
just type “The Names of GOD” in a Google search.
While He Was in His Ministry years, JESUS Taught His Disciples to
“Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons.” (Mt
10:8a-d) When He Rose from death, He Opened up the doorway to Eternal
Life in Paradise to all who will Believe on His Name. He Has Been Given
Power over all things (Mt 28:18c), and He Will Give an Eternal spirit body
to everyone who has ever lived. Incidentally, the spirit of every person
who was ever conceived will live forever. Yes, the spirit of everyone who
ever lived Has Been Given to them by GOD, and in therefore Eternal.
Satan’s attempts to kill GOD, and his efforts to prevent The Messiah from
being born have inevitably failed. As a result, The Sovereign GOD (The
First Person of The Echad, or HOLY Trinity… i.e., our Heavenly FATHER)
Has Passed Judgment on the devil and on all of the other “fallen
angels”. They Will Be Cast into a place, called The Lake of Fire, where The
Wrath of GOD Burns continually. (Rev 20:10, 13-15) Satan knows that he
has only a short time left before GOD’s Judgment Is Executed, so the
combined hatred of GOD with the terror of his ominous fate has resulted in
what The Bible calls the spirit of fear. Because his spirit has degenerated to
this level, Satan has focused this insidious corruption upon The Apple of
GOD’s Eye , that is, His (Adopted) Children, who are comprised of all who
have Believed that He Sent His Son (JESUS) to Provide Atonement for sin.
(Deut 32:9, 10) Conversely, GOD Has Given us of His SPIRIT… which is
one of Love; which is an Extension Of GOD’s SPIRIT. That is how we can
become One With The SPIRIT Of GOD, or more simply, One With GOD.
(1 John 4:13c) Holy Scripture declares, “For as many as are Led By The
Spirit of GOD, they are the sons of GOD.” (Rom 8:14) (caps ours)
As YESHUA (JESUS) Is The FATHER’s only Manifested (Begotten)
Son, the evil angels have determined to “steal, kill and destroy” the lives and
The Blessings of His Disciples (Followers, or Believers). (John 10:10a)
Whether we like it or not, we’re in a war. (A Spiritual war over the Eternal
Destiny of Humanity.) Satan and his parasitic demons continuously
endeavor to turn us away from Faith In GOD, and subsequently, from His
Kingdom (Heaven), and from His Blessings. How utterly disgraceful the
enemy is… Until next time, Shalom (Peace) Brakot (Many Blessings) and
Ahava (Love), In JESUS’ Name, Amen. Please try to remember this
scripture: “ The Kingdom Of GOD is… Righteousness, and Peace, and Joy
in The HOLY SPIRIT.” (Rom 14:17) (caps ours) ☺

The Prize – Part 1
Life is a battle, but contrary to what we might believe, we do not win it by
using carnal (fleshly) weapons. The core conflict in our lives is taking place
in an unseen dimension. The Bible calls it “the spirit world”. Our flesh is
frequently subjected to temptations, and our minds are sometimes infused
with detrimental thoughts, but the forces which cause these oppressions are
naturally imperceptible. That is, we cannot detect them using our five natural
senses. We need to employ a sixth sense… one which can differentiate
spirits. (2Cor10:3-5)
Let’s observe the battle of life in the spirit world. Imagine a prize fight,
where your spirit is the prize to the Victor. In this battle, the Principals are
YESHUA HaMashiach (JESUS The Messiah, The Christ), and the fallen
arch-angel Lucifer (the devil). Although we may not be able to see them
with our natural eyes, they are both fighting heartily to claim the victory for
our eternal destiny. Since we were Created in The Image and Likeness of
GOD, the “spirit” part of our “being” is Eternal. That is, it lives forever… as
GOD Is An Eternal Being. (John10:28) The battle is, consequently, not over
whether we will live forever, but rather, where we will live. Please ponder
that concept for a moment, if you will, as our sense of reality is determined
by how or what we perceive.
Getting back to the “Prize Fight”, I will introduce the challenger first. He
is Lucifer (or Satan, the devil), and he is one of the three most powerful
angels that GOD Created. The other two arch-angels, Gabriel and Michael
have chosen to remain faithful to GOD. Unfortunately, though, Lucifer
neglected to remain appreciative of the Glorious Attributes which GOD Had
Bestowed upon him, and in his malignant, self-focused arrogance, he
considered himself worthy to be praised and obeyed. [The psychologists
label that, (and quite appropriately) a Messianic Complex.] He then
proceeded to postulate the single most inane pathological delusion that
could ever be misconceived. In this stroke of infinite, incongruous
absurdity, he determined that he would kill GOD!!!
What preposterousness! It was as if an amoeba decided to build a
bridge to the furthermost planet in the Universe. There is a b s o l u t e l y,
positively, undeniably… no way. In my opinion, I don’t believe that
there is a more ludicrous thought imaginable. I contend that if we purposed
to think of something more irrational than that, we would fail. Thus,
Lucifer’s plan was doomed to failure… and fail it will. ☺ Satan (the devil)
is a finite being… limited in intelligence (obviously), as well as in power
and in wisdom. He can only be in one place at a time.
Conversely, GOD Is Omniscient (All-Knowing), Omnipotent (AllPowerful),
and Omnipresent (Everywhere, and in all the dimensions of time,
simultaneously). Ergo, GOD Is everywhere, continually. (Past, present,
and future… always, and in All Ways HOLY.) He Is The Supreme Entity!
Lucifer made the ultimate impropriety (blooper, boner, boo-boo,
bungle, dumb move, dumb thing to do, error, fault, faux pas, flub, flubup,
fluff, gaffe, goof, howler, inaccuracy, indiscretion, lapse, muff,
oversight, slip, slip-up, solecism, etc.), to the demise of himself and to all
those who would consequently follow him. In his ludicrous and delirious
defiance of sanity and reason, his attempts to kill GOD (Who Is Love,
Justice, and Light) have removed all goodness and mercy from his eternal
destiny. Also, besides destroying his own eternal well-being, he shamelessly
coaxed one third of the other angels into rebelling against our Perfect
Creator, and together, they have purposely deceived billions of human
beings, coaxing them to worship useless idols. (An idol can be anything that
is not GOD) The results are evidenced by the current world condition.
Attempting to kill Love is asinine. A s i n i n e (i.e., foolish,
unintelligent, or silly; stupid; of or like a jackass.) Would you obey and trust
your Eternal Destiny to a herd of donkeys? I don’t think so, either. ☺

Throughout history, the devil and the fallen angels have tried to prevent
the Birth of The Savior into the world, but The Mercy of GOD Is Greater
than the combined power of all those who would oppose Him. HaMashiach,
(The Messiah, The Christ) Has Been Given to the world to Redeem us…
those who will Believe. Glory and Honor Belong to our Merciful FATHER!
Alleluiah to The King of Kings, and The Lord Of Lords!!
His Kindnesses and Mercy Endure Forever!!!
Amen. (which means “so be it”, or “I Believe it”, or “I Agree.”)

The Holy Bible
The Holy Bible is The Inspired Word of GOD, and “is valuable for
teaching the truth, convicting of sin, correcting faults and training us in right
living,” (2 Tim. 3:16a,b,c). It was written as “people moved by The
HOLY SPIRIT spoke a message from GOD” (2 Pet. 1:21c) Who Is The
HOLY SPIRIT? He Is the third Person of the Tri-Unity which comprise The
GODhead (or The Divine Entity). That is, as both The Sovereign GOD (The
FATHER), and The Begotten Son of GOD (YESHUA, aka JESUS, The
Messiah), are Seated on Thrones in The Third Heaven (a Spiritual Domain).
The Ruach-HaKodesh (HOLY SPIRIT) Is The Person Who Is Representing
The HOLY TRINITY (GODhead, or Echad in Hebrew) here on Earth.
When JESUS was Physically here on Earth, He Revealed this Truth with
regard to The Holy Scriptures. As Sha’ul (aka, the Apostle Paul) realized
this truth, he said “for it is when I am weak that I am strong.” (2 Cor 12:10f)
Paul was describing the Effect that The HOLY SPIRIT was Producing
within him when he realized that he was not able to deal with the challenges
that life was presenting, but Was Enabled By GOD to overcome the
obstacles By GOD’s Power.
Since our Relationship With GOD Is A Spiritual One (GOD Is SPIRIT
John 4:24), the only tangible Evidence that we have of His Presence is His
Written Word, The Holy Bible. It is the way that people who do not “hear”
The Voice Of GOD can know what He Wants us to know. He Had It
Inspired for that very Reason. It is how we can know His Will for us (along
with by Hearing His Voice), and How He Imparts His Wisdom And Truth
into us. It records the history of GOD’s Chosen People (Israel), and teaches
us His Commandments and His Names, among other things. Appropriately,
one of His Names Is “Teacher”.
There are many other Names By Which GOD is Referred To in The Word
Of GOD. Another Of His Names Is “a consuming fire”. (Deut 4:24)
Accordingly, as we are all His Created beings (Created in His Image and
Likeness), His Intention Is To Help us to Become Holy and Perfect, just as
He Is. To that end, if we allow The HOLY SPIRIT to Work in us, He Will
“Burn up” the imperfections in our character by Allowing us to be
subjected to various trials, and by Empowering us to overcome the
temptations that would otherwise cause us to sin. Only by our invitation, will
GOD Interact With us. GOD Is Merciful and Compassionate toward us, but
He Will not Work within us unless He is invited to. (Acts 1:3a, Ps 78:38b)
As it is written in The Holy Bible, “His Strength Is Made Perfect in our
weakness.” (2 Cor 12:9c) This is a staggering Truth. GOD Has Created us to
Become One Spirit With Him, And Is Continually Longing To Conform Us
Into The Image Of His Son. (Rom 8:29) The Holy Bible also reveals that
This Was His Intention From The Beginning. (Rom 8:30-31)
I am overwhelmed by The Depth Of GOD’s Love… ☺

Truth
This is a subject of ultimate importance, as it is our perceptions which
determine our ‘reality’. (I discuss this concept of reality further in Parts #11
& #12) Truth and reality are mutually exclusive, that is, neither one is
dependant upon the other for it’s existence. Reality is subjective, while Truth
is Perpetual. Truth Is Ageless and Universal, while reality is ephemeral and
transitory. Ones concept of reality does not define Truth, but Truth Defines
one’s concept of reality. The significance of these axioms is monumental…
Consequently, a treatise on this subject can be, at best, problematic, as any
attempt to define Truth would require an encompassing knowledge of The
Subject. Therefore, only A Being Knowing the totality of existence Is
Qualified To Expound upon this subject. Furthermore, the human (mortal)
mind is finite, and therefore must resort to The Authority Of A Higher Mind
in order to peruse it’s scope. Ergo, I have resorted to the only difinitive
volume in the knowledge of this dissertation, Namely, The Written Word Of
GOD, The Holy Bible.
There is an Authoritative Definition of Truth Given during The Trial that
took place when JESUS Of Nazareth Was Being accused of blasphemy,
after He Attested To The Fact That He Was GOD In The Flesh. Here is the
historical account, as was recorded by His Disciple John…
“What is truth?”, the Roman governor Pontius Pilate asked JESUS.
(John 18:38b)
JESUS Answered: “I Am The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one
comes to The FATHER except through Me.” (John 14:6b-e) “I
Rebuke and Discipline everyone I Love; so exert yourselves and turn
from your sins!
Here, I’m Standing at the door, Knocking. If someone hears My Voice
and opens the door, I Will Come In to him and Eat with him, and he
will eat with Me. I will let him who wins the victory sit with Me on My
Throne, just as I Myself won The Victory and Sat Down with My
FATHER on His Throne.” (Rev 3:19b-21)
In this Account, JESUS Declares That He Is The Truth, signifying
that, Since He Was Commissioned To Create everything that was
Created, He Is Authorized To Define the parameters thereof. That is,
since He Is The One Who Made everything that Was Made, He Is
The Truth. Because Of Him, Truth Exists.
The “Victory” which JESUS Was Referring to in this incident is The
Imparted Ability to overcome “sin”, and which is Enabled By The
Power Of GOD when we are Re-Born. Sin is unholy behavior which
separates us from having Communion with GOD. As GOD Is HOLY
at all times, He therefore Can Not Have a total Communion (or
Oneness) with us if we are not holy. This “Total Oneness” (Which He
Desires To Have with us) is the Very Reason that He Created us.
GOD’s Desire Is For us to Become One With Him! (Jn 17:1-26)
I declare… that is totally Awesome ! ☺
“Thanks be to GOD for His Indescribable Gift!” (2 Cor 9:15)

The GOD Talk treatises are a series of commentaries on the subjects of
GOD and The Holy Bible. Since GOD Is an Infinite Being, it will literally
take forever to learn of Him, but that’s exactly how long His Believers will
Live, so consequently, we have just enough time. ☺ In fact, GOD Has
Created us so that He Could Give us Eternal Life, Love and Blessings, as we
share our lives with Him as His Children. (Luke 12:32)
The Bible declares that “GOD Is SPIRIT” (John 4:24a); and unless He
Chooses to Reveal His Presence to us, we cannot see Him. However, we can
sense His Presence using the part of our being that is Spirit. (i.e., the part
of our being that GOD Has Given to us.) Since GOD Is a Tri-une Being,
(that is, Three Persons in One), so we also have three aspects to our being.
(GOD Has Created us in His Image and Likeness. Gen 1:26) The GODHead
Is Comprised of The FATHER (The Soveriegn GOD), The Son (YESHUA,
is His Hebrew Name; JESUS is The Name transliterated from the Greek
language), and thirdly The Person that The Bible refers to as The HOLY
SPIRIT. Similarly, we are composed three parts; a physical body, a soul
(which is the combination of our mind and our emotions), and a spirit…
which is the part of us that GOD Has Added… and thereby allowing us to
Live.
GOD Is an Eternal Being. He Has always Been, and He Will always Be.
He Is The (Only)Living GOD of the universe. He Has Created all things,
except for those things which He Has Allowed His Created beings to create.
He Is All-Knowing, All-Powerful, and Omnipresent (ie., He Is in all places
at all times). By all times, I mean that He Knows everything that has already
happened, everything that is happening now, and everything that ever will
happen, because He Was/Is/Was there/here/there. That’s right! GOD Was
already in all of the future, as well as in all of the past. He Regards things
that have not yet happened as if they already have, for to Him, they have!! If
that does not “blow your mind”, read it again until it does. Only then can
you appreciate the Magnitude Of GOD’s Being.
By All-Powerful, I mean that nothing ever happens that He Doesn’t Allow
to happen. He Is Never out of control nor taken by surprise. The MerriamWebster
dictionary defines Him as “The Supreme Reality”. (caps
corrections mine) What an excellent observation, indeed! ☺ The words
Ultimate Being, and Incomparable Presence also come into my mind.
Isn’t He Wonderful!? Isn’t it equally marvelous that He Is Love? (1John
4:8b) Also, He Is Light (Illumination), and The GOD Of Justice… our
Creator and Redeemer. It is my sincere desire to share The Heart and Mind
of GOD on these pages, to the best of my ability. I will never be able to give
Him all The Glory and The Honor that He Deserves, as I am only a mortal
man. (at least as of this writing) But GOD Has Plans for His Children to
Live Eternally With Him, as Spirit Beings like He Is, in a perfect Heaven
that The Bible calls Paradise. He Has Provided a Way for us to Achieve that
Blessing, Through The Atoning Life and Blood Of His Only Begotten Son,
JESUS (YESHUA), The Messiah.
I know without a doubt that it is GOD’s Will to Bless, Protect and Love all
of His Creation. The more I come to Know Him, the more I want to Know
and to Love Him. It is a Super-Natural Fact of Life that His Ways Are
Higher than our ways. (Isaiah 55:8-9) Alleluiah! (which means ‘Glory To
GOD!’) Surely, GOD Is Worthy Of Glory, as you may already know; and
the more that we learn about Him, the more we will want to honor and serve
Him. ☺
I envite you to email me with questions or subjects that you would
like these treatises to address. As I promised in the previous article, your
emails will be kept strictly confidential, unless you request that your name
be mentioned. Please, feel free to contact me, and May GOD Keep you and
Abundantly Bless you, In The Glorious and Most Wonderful Name Of His
Son YESHUA HaMashiach, (JESUS, The Messiah), Amen.

GOD’s Blessing To You All
Greetings, Ahava, Shalom, and Brakot to all. Hello again to all my
previous readers and friends. ☺ It is an honor for me to be able to share my
heart and mind with you again, as we continue to share The Heart and Mind
of The True And Living GOD. I am aware that most of you don’t know me,
or that Ahava means Love, that Shalom means Peace; and that Brakot means
Many Blessings, but if you continue to read these writings, you will learn
some Hebrew words, and, hopefully discover a deeper revelation of the
words of The Prophets and The Disciples. It is my personal desire that we
will become more acquainted with each other, as we grow in the knowledge
of The HOLY One Of Israel, YESHUA HaMashiach. (JESUS, The Messiah)
In the past, I have written my column as an exposition, as I wanted to build
a foundation first, and then expound and continue to build upon that
foundation. In retrospect, though, I have realize, that by writing a “one-way”
discourse, I was not able to establish a meaningful relationship with my
readers. I believe that some may have became frustrated in their
understanding of the subject matter, electing then to discontinue reading it.
This time, I would like to have more of an “open forum” type of platform,
whereby we, as a group, will determine the direction of the discussions.
Therefore, I am inviting you all to correspond with me via e-mail, at
robertb@lovesongchristianchurch.com Kindly (please) use “GOD Talk #_”
in the “Subject” line of the e-mails, so that we can be “on the same page”.
Thank you. ☺
So let’s get started! If anyone would like to suggest a topic for a new
discussion, get to your keyboard, and let me know! Also, if I receive many
e-mails asking the same question, I will write a new GOD Talk treatise on
that subject. Please be assured that I will not include any of your personal
information in the columns, only the content pertaining to the discussions.
Your user name or e-mail address will not be included unless you indicate
to me that you want it to be. So, as Captain Picard and his first officer
Commander Riker say in the Star Trek series… Engage!
May GOD Help me to give Him the Honor and the Glory that He Deserves
in my attempts to reveal His Heart and Mind to you through His Word, By
His HOLY SPIRIT, and In The Name Of His Son JESUS… Amen. ☺

Meaning and Lessons From The Disciple’s Prayer (The Lord’s Prayer) Part 2 of 2

May 13, 2014 by Jack Wellman

We have the great privilege to pray directly to God the Father because of our Great High Priest and Intercessor, in Jesus Christ’s name in whose name we should always pray because God listens to the prayers of the saints because of Jesus’ access to the throne room of heaven.
We are to ask for our daily bread in the sense of the Word of God being our daily bread for Jesus told Satan that “Man should not live by bread alone but by every word that precedes out of the mouth of God” (Matt 4:4). This means that we should be in His Word daily, feeding on the Bread of Life. Christian’s who only open their Bible in church are spiritually starving the rest of the week.
This could also be seen as asking God for our daily sustenance or our daily allotment of food, shelter and clothing. There is nothing wrong with praying for our daily needs but Jesus did not say to pray for tomorrow’s bread but only for today’s because He said “Give us each day our daily bread.” Nothing is said about tomorrow’s bread. Just like the manna that came down from heaven each day, any manna kept for the next day became maggot infested so God will give us just enough for each and every day and we are commanded to not worry about tomorrow (Matt 6:34).
Luke 11:4a and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.”
God is not going to answer our prayers if we have unconfessed sin or if we have something against someone. We owed a debt we could not pay but He paid a debt He did not owe so that we might have access to God. If you haven’t forgiven someone, then go to that person and first ask to be forgiven and then come back to God to pray for your own needs or the needs of others.
Luke 11:4b “And lead us not into temptation.”
Jesus is not telling us to ask God to not lead us into temptation because God tempts no one (James 1:13). The Greek word for temptation is actually “peirasmos” which literally means “a trial, proving, or testing.” So Luke 11:4b is saying “And lead us not into tests or trials” so that we might not fall or fail the test. God does test us or allow us to be tested but “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it” (1 Cor 10:13) so God is not tempting us at any time.
Matthew 6:13 “For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
Some manuscripts have this ending to the Lord’s Prayer but not all of them do. Even so, I believe it is biblical because we acknowledge that it is God’s kingdom and it is His power and it is for His glory which is forever and ever that we should pray for. Certainly we always ought to pray for God to be glorified because God is worthy to be glorified and honored and praised. We are to fulfill part of God’s purpose in our lives and part of that is to seek to glorify God’s name in all we do, say, and think. When we take credit for things that God has done we rob God of His due glory and God is not happy when we do not give Him the glory and we take if for ourselves. If we do this, He will surely humble us because He is opposed to those that are prideful but He will give you grace if you humble yourself before Him (James 4:6). God speaks through Isaiah the prophet when He says “I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other” (Isaiah 42:8).

Conclusion
You can glorify God by becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ, submitting to Him, repenting of your sins, confessing them to God, and then trusting in Jesus Christ. If you do, then you also can pray to your Father Who is in heaven but if He is not your Father, as I wrote earlier, you are of your father the Devil and you will do the things of the Devil (John 8:44-45) and your end will be like his is someday (Rev 20:11-15). Seek His face today, fall down and bend the knee before Him, confess Him as Lord and you too will be a child of God (Rom 10:9-13).
