Rejoice and Praise
Rejoice and praise the Lord. There are times in life we all face where the last thing we feel is rejoicing and praise. But even at those times as we can remember who God is and what He has done for us at the Cross of Calvary, it can only bring rejoicing and praise to God. In Psalm 33:3 the psalmist says sing a new song, not we could say just the old ones, they were all new at one time, play instruments but do it with skill, do it well practice in private to get good before you do it in public. Today we see much evil in our world but stop and look around until you see the goodness of God, look at creation, nature see all that He did its’ wonder and beauty. And also those people who show forth the love of God to others. Today even in church there needs to be the fear, utmost respect and awe , amazement of God. The counsel of the Lord stands forever the counsel of unbelievers will fail vs. 10-11. Today we see our president turning the country against Israel that’s is a disaster for America, God has blessed America and until now America has blessed Israel. God has said He will bless those that bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. Pray that our nation will always stand with Israel. The hope for our nation too remain free until the Rapture, is not in a political party or leader it is too turn back to God and trust in Him. That will only start when Christians turn back to God and His Word as He gave it in the Bible it means just what is says and it will last forever. Read it, Believe it and Follow it and allow God to bless you, remember God’s greatest blessings are for eternity and will never be lost as all on this earth is destroyed by fire. Be sure of your relationship with Him believe, repent and be saved, forgiven and become a child of God. Examine your life today. Psalm 33 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. 2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. 3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. 4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. 5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of theLORD. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. 10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. 11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. 13 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. 14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. 15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. 16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. 18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. 20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. 21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. 22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

BLESSED
Four things concerning the blessed person: 1. Transgressions are forgiven 2. Sin is covered, 3. His iniquity not added to his account, 4. Honest in his dealings. There is nothing in this life better than knowing our account is clean before God in His eyes. He has promised that He will not remember our sins when we confess them. We remember our past sins, we can say that we know something that God doesn’t , my past confessed sins, He chooses and promises not to remember them again. Our confessed sin are covered by the blood of Jesus so when God sees me his view is filtered through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ and He sees me pure without sin. Unconfessed sin takes its toll spiritually, mentally and physically over time as the psalmist said even my bones feel old. He encourages us to seek God while we can, then confess, receive forgiveness and be restored. He is our protector to shield us from Satan’s attacks and our teacher to show us the way we should walk daily. Trust in Him and be surrounded in His mercy. The be glad, rejoice and shout for joy. Remember God has cleansed our sins and forgotten them and promises to remember them no more. Hebrews 8:12”For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.:” Don’t let the past harm your future since God has set it aside so should we. Forgiven, cleaned and restored let us press toward the future staying close to Christ through His Word and prayer committed to live for Him the way He leads each of us. Psalm 32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. 4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. 5 I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. 7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. 10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. 11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Ownership
All belongs to God, all creations in the heavens and earth and we ourselves are not our own. We were created specially in every detail(Psalm 139). How will we take care of and use what God has created and loaned to us. The bond and relationship was broken by the first man and woman. God has made restoration possible through the Cross of Calvary. Restoration is our choice to accept His offer or reject it. We can stand with Him in fellowship with clean hands and a pure heart, it’s our job to keep them clean and pure with confession of sins and then staying far away from sin as possible in our daily walk. Be careful of Satan’s deceptions. And when we fail and we will we go to Him, repent, confess and receive forgiveness and back into that fellowship with nothing between us and our Lord. As kids we were told not to step in the mud puddles, yes we had mud puddles in the country. God tells to not step in Satan’s mud puddles. But as kids stepping right at the edge was always fun. And as with Satan’s puddles they look good at the edge and it seems enjoyable, but be assured just as kids we will one day step fully into the puddle. Then what seemed enjoyable at the time will end in destruction of our fellowship with Christ ,our families and our testimony. Stay away from the puddles the cost is too high,, not worth the temporary enjoyment. Remember Satan is a deceiver and uses deception to capture and destroy his prey. Enjoy the blessings of clean hands and a pure heart. Psalm 24 The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. 7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah. As the Hymn writer C.A. Tindley put it. Nothing between my soul and my Savior, Naught of this world’s delusive dream;
I have renounced all sinful pleasure; Jesus is mine, there’s nothing between.
Nothing between, like worldly pleasure; Habits of life, though harmless they seem,
Must not my heart from Him ever sever; He is my all, there’s nothing between.
Nothing between, like pride or station; Self or friends shall not intervene;
Though it may cost me much tribulation, I am resolved, there’s nothing between.
Nothing between, e’en many hard trials, Though the whole world against me convene;
Watching with prayer and much self-denial, I’ll triumph at last, there’s nothing between.
Refrain: Nothing between my soul and my Savior, So that His blessed face may be seen;
Nothing preventing the least of His favor; Keep the way clear! Let nothing between.

What is Christianity?
In the Presidents’ speech at the prayer breakfast and in the news they said that Christians in the past were killing and enslaving others. In the 1500s it was the catholic churches leaders that were putting people to death if they disagreed with the churches wrong teaching. See Foxes book of martyrs for the accounts. In regard to slavery that was wrong and not according to the Bible. So I just wanted to give out the evidences of the true Christianity. It starts with the Gospel, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ for our sin. All are sinners Romans 3:23 The wages of sin is death, separation from God in Hell forever. Revelation 20:11-15 God loves you Romans 5:8 Believe that Christ is the Son of God Christ paid the price of sin Romans 10:9-13 Accept Him as who He is Saviour and Lord. It’s Christ alone for salvation nothing added by us. We just accept the gift He offered to all. The Bible gives evidence in the lives of those who are truly Christians. But we will not always follow them we fail many times when we do we repent and confess it to Christ and get forgiveness 1 John 1:9
Evidence of Salvation
A changed life, desires and motives 2nd Corinthians 5:17-18 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Cannot sin and get away with it, does it brother you, if you can get away with sin, you are not saved Hebrews 12:6-8 6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth
Loves not the World, desires and actions. 1st John 2:15-16 15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Wants to do the will of God for his life. 1st John 2:3-6 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Loves the Bible and gets something out of it 1st John 2:27 27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. (Your relationship to the Bible is the same as it is to Christ, sin is a barrier to it.)
Does not practice sin 1st John 3:9 (NLT) Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.
Loves other Believers 1St John 3:14 14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Love in action deed and truth 1st John 3:18 concern for others. 18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
Gets prayers answered 1st John 3:22 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
Spirit bears witness with our heart. 1 John 3:24 24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
Romans 8:16 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

JOY
Joy in Gods’ strength, a blessing to know and be able to rest in Gods’ strength. The one who spoke all the universe, planets, animals into existence and the one who watches over me. He has the ability and desire to meet all my needs as He knows best for me. Joh in His salvation that He provided for us at Calvary when we stop and remember what He did, the cost He paid because of His love for all people, that brings joy then we remember the time when we accepted His offer of forgiveness and restoration that should bring intense joy. Read Matthew 27 often and when we get to verse 46 Jesus cries out “My God My God why hast thou forsaken me?” We can answer for me and my sin. Sing with joy , worship Him with joy, love and admiration and tell others of His love for you Sharing your testimony with others both believers and non believers brings joy. Let’s share. Psalm 21: The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! 2 Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah. 3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head. 4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever. 5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him. 6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance. 7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. 8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORDshall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. 10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. 11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform. 12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them. 13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thin own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

Keep Me
The psalmist prayer is for God to keep him safe, secure and from spoilage. Because I put my trust in you he like us knows we would fail if we were kept in the relationship by our own power. I Peter 1:5 tells us we are kept not by our own efforts but by the awesome power of God. I picture a strong arm reaching down and grabbing hold of me, nothing is powerful enough to cause Him to release His grip I am held fast, by His power and love not my efforts. ”I Peter 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” Psalm 16:8 I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand I shall not be moved.”Our commitment keep our eyes on the Lord in our daily walk, we must spend time alone with our savior through His Word, reading, study and prayer. He gives counsel and instruction we have joy and rest because of His promises. Psalm 16 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. 2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; 3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. 4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink fferings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. 5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. 6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. 7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. 8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

FORGOTTEN
Ever felt forgotten by God, the times when problems, events rose up in your life. You prayed and it seemed that God did not hear or just refused to listen and answer many have been in that place at times. The Bible tells of a man that for 38 yrs had an infirmity in John 5, a woman for 18 yrs doctors could not help in Luke 13, a man born blind in John 9, Mary and Martha close friends of Jesus and their brother died in John11. Do we dare think that thy never questioned God, when He would not hear or help. The Psalmist looked within his own heart to find wrongs he had done. What have I done wrong and why won’t God help me? We must look within for sin but then confess it and accept God’s forgiveness, don’t just continue to dwell on past sins that God has promised to forgive and also forget. And don’t go their again to repeat the same sin and if you do repent , confess and accept God’s forgiveness. The Psalmist speaks of his enemies, we may not think we have personal enemies. But we as Believers the greatest enemy of all Satan, whose goal it is to destroy our testimony and or our usefulness in our service to God. Sometimes just through discouragement. Then the Psalmist as we should remembered who God is, His character, His love and our relationship with Him. Then he declares his trust in God and rejoices over his salvation. Even in times of heartache and trouble we can still sing unto the Lord because of His mercy, love and forgiveness toward us, The blood that Jesus shed on the cross of Calvary makes it all possible if we accept Him gift offered to all. Psalm 13” 1 How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; 4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. 5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. 6 I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.”
