Praise God for another year!
Heavenly Father may Your name be holy and Your will be done and Your kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven. Thank you Father for your love and for Jesus and for Your patience with me this last year. I pray that this year I'll trust in You and abide in You, and please forgive me my sins. Please use me to change this world for the better in any way that I can and strengthen my faith to fulfill Your plan for my life. Please help me to be a positive person and full of encouragement for those around me. I know how weak I am, but I also know that You use the weak things of the world, so I have high hopes. Please be with those I love and help Your church (and me as I'm part of it) to put You first and to love each other as you've commanded us. May our hearts be full of Your praises and our lives abiding with Your Spirit. Please keep us from temptation and the lies of the enemy. May Your praises, Your light, and power fill this Year with hope and blessings for those You love and those who love You. In Jesus name I pray. Thank You Lord! Amen!

The New Covenant in Christ Jesus

“The LORD wrote on these tablets what He had written before, the Ten Commandments He had proclaimed to you on the mountain, out of the fire, on the day of the assembly. And the LORD gave them to me. Then I came back down the mountain and put the tablets in the ark I had made, as the LORD commanded me, and they are there now. Deut. 10:4-5”

Reading through 1 kings 8:9 and 2 Chronicles and found something I hadn’t noticed before ch 5 vs 10

“There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets which Moses put there at Horeb, where the Lord made a covenant with the sons of Israel , when they came out of Egypt. 2Chron 5:10”

Yet we know from Hebrews 9:4 that “Behind the second curtain was a room called the Most Holy Place, which had the golden altar of incense and the gold-covered ark of the covenant. This ark contained the gold jar of manna, Aaron's staff that had budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant.”
So we can see that this staff of miracles and bread of life that fed the Israelites from heaven was not a lasting part of His covenant under the law with Israel. In so much as that they could not keep the law, we see this clearly that by the time of 2 Chronicles these articles were no longer in the ark of testimony. But we in Christ most certainly have a better promise because Christ has entered the most holy place and is there on our behalf. And in Him the miracles(Indwelling by His Spirit, Freedom from sin, resurrection, even Knowledge, Wisdom, healing, supernatural miracles, prophesy, tongues, etc.) and manna(bread of life: God’s daily provision and faith and hope and love and the fruits of the Spirit that come from Jesus) are found abundantly once more and even the law is now written on our hearts(Heb8:10). This is all said much better in Hebrews but I like it when God shows me these interesting facts when I’m reading old testament too.

“Hebrews 8:5-7 They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: "See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain." But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises. For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another.”

Isn’t Jesus amazing!!!!

Jesus is the Truth!

"1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ(Christ meaning the messiah) has come in the flesh is from God; 3and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. 4You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world." 1 John 4:1-4

Is it wrong to test whether God is the one speaking to you or not? of course not infact He tells us to in His word. Many false prophets have gone out into the world. They believe in a lie and you can know them by this great section of 1 John.
But also there are those who would try to pervert the knowledge of Christ Jesus about them we have instruction found in Galatians 1:6-8 "6 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!" A strong warning to those religions who use the name of Christ Jesus falsely. One more way to know those who are from Him is spoken by Jesus in Matthew 7:15-2015"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them."

Well hope this helps in decerning some of the lies out there from the enemy.

Matthew 5:11-12

"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." Matthew 5:11-12

These words found in the gospel of Matthew chapter 5 bring us a truth straight from the mouth of Jesus the anointed one; the only son of God the creator, Who came to bring peace between God and man and destroy the works of Satan. This He accomplished on the cross by taking our sin upon Himself and dieing in our place. No longer can the accuser accuse us, for in Jesus we have been made righteous(made to be in communion once more with God the Father). He is our peace and the peace/sin/guilt offering between Man and God. A one time offering to God the Father (and more than sufficient for all eternity) Who was most pleased to accept it. These words found in Matthew pronounce a promise and a blessing. Note that He did not say "if people insult you and persecute you" but "when", we must not expect a life free from the hate of those who reject and hate Jesus, but we can take courage and know that we are blessed by God for believing and remaining in Him.

Believe in Jesus

In Christ is found hope, and faith that refines,
So that we may cope, defeating sins crimes,
Our Saviour is He, Who rose from the grave,
He let our hearts see, the love that He gave,
For He took the sentence, of death we deserved,
Removing the fence, between sheep and shepherd,
We now have a guide, to lead us each day,
No longer we hide, from our Lord in dismay,
So now let us walk, in the way that He’s shown,
In true love not just talk, and by Love we’ll be known.
His love and kindness, forever will rain,
On the one who believes in His glorious name,
