 Liberty

Brothers and Sisters,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

What do these scriptures say to you?

Jeremiah 29:4-7
Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; [5] Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; [6] Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished. [7] And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

Philip. 4:6-7
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. [7] And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philip. 4:11-13
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. [12] I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. [13] I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

1 Tim. 6:1-8
Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed. [2] And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.
[3] If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; [4] He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, [5] Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. [6] But godliness with contentment is great gain. [7] For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [8] And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

John 18:36
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Matthew 5:44
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

1 Samuel 15:22
And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

Matthew 23:11
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.


Do you see what the Lord is telling those who are His?

In His Love

Liberty

Brothers and Sisters,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

John 8:31-32
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; [32] And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Do you see what the Lord is telling those who are His?

John 8:36
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Has He? Are you? Will You?

Col. 3:1-4
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. [2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. [3] For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. [4] When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

What are you seeking?

Luke 12:34
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

In His Love

 Re: Liberty Indeed!

Greetings to you also.

Have appreciated and enjoyed the gist of this thread. It appears He has given us all that pertains to Life - both Spiritually and physically. The older and feebler I get - I wish I had been so old and feeble back when I was younger - :-D - for I've found His Strength increasingly perfected in my weakness. I cannot depend on myself or my sharp mind to come up with some ingenious solution to things or my body to provide for myself. As we age, some of us somehow revert back to that state of dependence where we were as children. At the first it frightens some, but later they find that it is a more spiritually absorbent state. Childlike helplessness is a blessing in disguise - from the world that is. The disguise is - the world would view the degree of one's helplessness as disability or liability and one's quality of life, as not thriving. That is too bad. Too bad for those who do not know that in our weakness, He is made strong.
Your verses cause me to see a future - where the children of the Most High - will need to depend on Him more than ever in the history of man.
If you wouldn't mind - in that vane - I'd like to add to a reference you have included in your list.

Mat 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Mat 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Mat 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
Mat 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Mat 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Mat 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Mat 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
Mat 6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
Mat 6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Mat 6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Mat 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mat 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Mat 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.



Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying -

[b][u]Alleluia: for The Lord God Omnipotent Reigneth.[/u][/b]

Yes, as Paul said:
2 Cor. 12:10
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

This is a hard lesson to learn, and what a shame we spend most if our lives fighting against the very blessing that we desire; to be totally dependent upon our Lord Jesus Christ. Knowing that whatever the world has to throw at us, He is in control. Oh what a joy to know that ‘nothing’ can separate us from the Love of Christ, as we place all our hope In Him.

Quote:

What a joy to know all will be secure in Him, as we place our trust in His strength and not our own.

Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Thank you for filling in the verses around:
Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Only through the entrance into His kingdom do we find the righteousness of God and the peace that all our needs shall be met through Him.



Quote:
Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying -
Quote:
Alleluia: for The Lord God Omnipotent Reigneth.



This is where our hope rest, that we will hear these words and be among this great multitude.


It is a joy to meet you, HE_Reigns,

“Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.”

In His Love

Amen.
Having gotten around to some of your other posts yesterday, I would like to say, it is my joy to have met you. Our eyes are single or hope in Only One. Soon we shall see Him as He is - until then - Phil 3:7-15.[11]
Stay well in Him.
Yes, HE Does Reign and can be fully Trusted.
