The wise men go to Herod looking for the King that was to be born. They had seen His star and was now seeking the town where He will be. The scribes in Herod’s court told them it was Bethlehem (Matt. 2: 1-12). This they knew from Micah 5:2-5. Bethlehem means House of Bread and at the House of Bread the Bread of Life was born. The wise men went to worship the King. But no one from Herod’s court went. This proves you can know the scriptures and still not know Jesus. Thankfully, we do not have to figure out where to find Jesus. We can seek Him in our own home. Partake of the Bread of Life today.

Emotions were given to us by God. The mind, will and emotions make up our soul or we could say our self. Who we are inside. But emotions are not to control us, we are to control them. Some people cannot seem to get a grip on their feelings. Unfortunately, they often can’t shut their mouths either. “A fool vents all his feelings but a wise man holds them back “ (29:11). When people say you should hold your peace, they really mean your anger. Want to control your emotions? Then take control of your mouth first. Vent to God when you are in prayer not to everyone around you. Even a fool, when he holds his peace, is counted wise.

Ever had a time when you couldn’t seem to stop sinning? I mean you wanted to quit but whatever you were into had a grip on you and wouldn’t let go. Then your deliverance comes, and you feel free. Will the feeling of freedom keep you free? To make sure you stay free get in God’s Word and stay there. Ps. 119:11 “Your Word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against You “. It is better to hide God’s Word in your heart than to have to hide your face in shame. Stay in the Word and stay free.

Psalms 119

King Jehoshaphat hears that Syria is coming against him. He immediately seeks the Lord and proclaims a national fast (20:3). His father Asa was king before him, but he didn’t seek God. He sought Syria’s help against Israel. For this he was rebuked (16:7-10). In that rebuke Asa was told that the eyes of the Lord run to and fro through the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those that have loyal hearts towards Him. Jehoshaphat was delivered because he sought God, but Asa had wars all his life. Don’t look for help from any place other than God. His eyes are looking for those who are looking for Him.

The Book of Numbers closes in 36:13 saying everything we just read was the commandments and judgments the Lord had commanded Israel. Our God is a God of Judgment (Isaiah 30:18). Judgement means decision, judgment, correction, etc. God always has right judgment but man only sometimes. When we follow the decisions and corrections that God teaches us, we have right judgment. God’s judgment is based on truth and holiness. It corrects things that are off balance and rectifies wrongs. May we listen to Him in all our decisions and seek to serve Him in all our ways.

The Mosaic law required animal sacrifices that had to be repeated. But our High Priest, Jesus, took His own blood into the Most Holy Place once and for all. Through it He obtained eternal redemption (9:11-12). No more need to sacrifice animals because the blood of Jesus did it all, for all, for all time. Now the only sacrifice we should offer is the sacrifice of praise as we give thanks to His name(13:15). There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood!

Hebrews 8-10

The Name of Jesus is powerful. When Peter and John see the lame man at the gate of the temple, Peter says “silver and gold I do not have but what I do have I give you. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk” (3:6). Do you realize as a believer you HAVE the Name of Jesus ? Using His name in faith is what raised that man up (3:16). In their defense before the Sanhedrin Peter told them it was because of the Name the man was made whole (4:10). And Peter closes with “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other Name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (4:12). The Name of Jesus is the Name above all names. And we should use it above all names to see people healed and saved.

The Book of Acts 3-4

After Jonah delivers God’s message to Nineveh the people there believed God and went into fasting (3:5-10). Everyone from the least to the greatest repented. The king even proclaimed a fast for not only the people but even their animals. God heard these people and He relented from the disaster He was going to bring upon them. This is one of the greatest revivals in the Bible. What if God was about to destroy the USA? Would the people hear a prophet? Would they repent, fast and pray? Would our leaders proclaim a national fast? We should be praying now. It only takes a no to any of those questions to see our demise at hand.
