Ho! Ho! Ho! Everyone

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy?

It’s because your leaders want you to do so, but "My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts," Isaiah 55:8-9.

With God, salvation is free! The price was on Jesus, and 2000 years ago God accepted the offering of his blood - it was enough. God said nations "shall run to you, Because of the LORD your God," not because for any other reason, your money, your wages nor tithing, but because of the sure mercies of David shown them.

He said, "as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be..." Isaiah 55:10 - 11. Freely you received, and freely give.

He rebuked the leaders who exploit the gospel, and said don’t become like thorns in flesh, briers but become the right planting of the Lord, the cypress trees and myrtle trees together, i .e., be there for his name, "For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off,” Isaiah 55:13.

He said, "Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon," Isaiah 55:7.

Sometimes such a simple gospel upsets someone but in Genesis 4:6-7 The Lord said to Cain, "Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it."

Ho! Everyone, Come to the waters; Come, buy and eat. Yes, Without money and without price.

What happens if you buy something from the shop and it doesn't work?

If you didn't get your item as described, get a refund. ... You will be a fool to continue placing orders from the same seller, worse who does not fulfil orders. No point continuing to spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy. Do not keep on getting scammed by these prophets of deceit.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Isaiah 55:2

You can't just brush off some questions - they deserve answers.

Why do you spend your wages on what is not bread, on what does not satisfy?

You will never come to the knowledge of truth if you brusquely dismiss or ignore these questions.

The Lord says, listen carefully to me, incline your ear and come to me, and eat what is good.

If you are to spend your money, then spend it on what is good, that true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and on that satisfying. However, the invitation to abundance life is to everyone thirsty and with no money. He says, "Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price," Isaiah 55:1.

Peter said to Ananias, "why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself?" Acts 5:3. He said Simon, "Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money,” Acts 8:20. The price of salvation is of blood, not gold or silver. If you think salvation is bought even by works then you’re deceiving yourself. Jesus said look to me and you shall be saved. Isaiah 45:13 says, "I have raised him up in righteousness, And I will direct all his ways; He shall build My city And let My exiles go free, Not for price nor reward," Says the LORD of hosts.

The price of redemption is the precious blood of the lamb. He said, "You shall not bring the wages of a harlot or the price of a dog to the house of the LORD your God for any vowed offering, for both of these are an abomination to the LORD your God," Deuteronomy 23:18

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.

Happy Easter!

God bless you,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

What do you want to see in a 21st century church?

 I wanna see the glory of the Lord come in the temple! Once again, that when I come in the temple, behold, the whole place "is most holy," Ezekiel 43:12, and the glory of the Lord is full in the Temple. I like this verse; “Seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it. When these days are over it shall be, on the eighth day and thereafter, that the priests shall offer your burnt offerings and your peace offerings on the altar; and I will accept you,' says the Lord GOD,” Ezekiel 43:26-27. Now, "…make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it…and I will accept you," says the Lord. There is a river, healing waters; "flowing from under the threshold of the temple," Ezekiel 47:1. "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, wi

The people of Israel

The journey of the people of Israel is a fascinating story, and understanding it could possibly make your own life story too. It began when God called Abraham, and said to him, " Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee " Acts 7:3. He obeyed, and he left and lived in Haran, in a country they now call Israel. But God, gave him no " inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child " Acts 7:5. So, God promised that eventually the whole country would belong to him and his descendants, but these descendants of his would leave the land and live in a foreign country and there become slaves for 400 years. He said  I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and afterwards they will return to this land of Israel and worship me here. Later, Isaac was born, and Isaac had Jacob, and Jaco
