Our Daily Bread, Content… Paul Beverly

Posted in Our Daily Bread with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2018 by paulthepoke

It’s okay to want more out of life, but don’t want out of envy. There’s happiness in being content. Faith in God & doing what he puts in your heart will bring you what you need & more. Those that live life striving for more out of envy will find nothing but gloom in the end. Find happiness where you are to get more from life.

Proverbs 14:30 A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.

Philippians 4:11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

Have a content week my friends!!!

Our Daily Bread, Be Yourself… Paul Beverly

Posted in Our Daily Bread with tags , , , on September 30, 2018 by paulthepoke

Why is it hard to just be ourselves sometimes? Why do we compare ourselves with others? If you’re busy comparing yourself to others, you’re missing out on the happiness of being you. God made you just as you are & that is how & where he wants you at the time. He didn’t want you to be like somebody else or he would have made you like them. If you’re trying to be like somebody else, you’re missing out on the best you, the you that is loved by God & loved ones.

2 Corinthians 10:12 Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.

Posted in Creation, Prophecy, Sanhedrin with tags , , , , , , on August 23, 2018 by paulthepoke

The Holy Sanhedrin, a group of 71 of Israel’s leading rabbinical sages, presents the World Creation Concert.

The concert will be held on Elul 24, 5778 on the Hebrew calendar. This would be September 3, 2018 on a Gregorian western calendar. The concert is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Israel time.

The event is set to take place one day before the anniversary of the creation of the world per Jewish tradition.

“Creation began at the even shtiya, the foundation stone under the Holy of Holies. It is only fitting that all the nations should join together to pray at the Temple Mount.” Mordechai Persoff, Head of the Mikdash Educational Center

God-fearing participants from all backgrounds and all nations on earth are invited to participate and join together. Under the leadership of The Holy Sanhedrin, the concert is a public declaration of thanksgiving and allegiance to the Mighty G-d of Israel, the One Creator who formed us all.

Sanhedrin Spokesman Hillel Weiss had the following statements about the purpose of the upcoming concert.

“This concert is a call to prayer for all nations, to come together to praise God in Jerusalem as nations and not as religions. This was the intention of King Solomon when he established his Temple.”

“This concert is a way to bring all of the nations together to praise God. This is an event organized by Orthodox Jews but it does not belong to any religion. We are acting in our prophesied role as a Kingdom of Priests, serving the nations in order to enable them to serve Hashem.” Rabbi Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman.

For more details and further quotes. See the link below from Breaking Israel News.

Hashem is a Hebrew term for God. Hashem literally means “the name”. It is frequently substituted for Adonai.

Isaiah 2:3-4 And many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; that He may teach us concerning His ways and that we may walk in His paths.” For the law will go forth from Zion and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And He will judge between the nations, and will render decisions for many peoples; and they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they learn war.

Is There Evil??? -Phil Kulis

Posted in Gospel, Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2018 by paulthepoke

A question often posed, or a variant thereof goes like this… “If there’s a God, then why does He allow evil?”

My response is, “Is evil real? Or is it just a figment of your imagination?”

If it’s not real, then what is your concern?

But if it is real, should it be punished?

Have you yourself committed evil? Do you think any evil you’ve done is not as bad as someone else’s evil and therefore you’re good by comparison?

Because evil is real and evil should be punished, that means there is a good that is contrast to evil. Therefore, we have free will to choose good or evil.

And since there is a good to contrast evil proving that it should be punished, then it’s because of a violation of the Moral Law.

The Moral Law comes from the objective Moral Law Giver. Man has proven his morality is subjective relative to his situation or perception of someone else’s evil, and probability of getting caught. This is more proof of evil.

So evil is real.
Evil should be punished.
All have committed evil.
Evil is in contrast to good.
Good is defined by the Moral Law.
The Moral Law is given by an Objective Giver.

The last realization is our accountability to the Objective Moral Law Giver.

As determined earlier evil must be punished.
The penalty is Death.

Plato said, “The Deity may be able to forgive sin. But I do not see how.”

Plato understood that an Objective Moral Law Giver must be Justice. And Justice must be impersonal. So, the Moral Law Giver is obligated to punish sin.

 

water glass

Imagine for a moment sitting before you is a glass filled half way with water. While you’re watching, I place one drop of lethal poison in the glass. There is no antidote. Would you drink it? No, if you’re in your right mind you wouldn’t. What if I filled the glass with more water all the way to full? Now would you drink it? No, you wouldn’t, because the lethal dose of poison is still in the glass.

Your life is the glass of water. And the lethal poison is the evil you’ve done in your life. The additional water is the remainder of your life. Even without more evil, you can’t change the evil of the past. You are doomed.

But the Objective Moral Law Giver provided a way for you. He sent His Son who drank your glass of water and left His glass of water without the poison for you to drink. There’s nothing you can do about it. It’s done.

All that remains is for you to drink it and contemplate what that means to you.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, what whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 

And the proof of that eternal life, the power over death, is the Resurrection of His Son.

Drink up.

Our Daily Bread, Stress Management… Paul Beverly

Posted in Our Daily Bread, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2018 by paulthepoke

Are you tired & mentally drained? Are you exhausted from worry & stress? Give it to God & have faith in His plans for you. Step back & wait for His clear answer & know He has your back, if you let Him.

When doubt & worry start eating away at you, go to God. Give it all to Him & never doubt His love for you. Have faith that He will bring you through it. Nothing is too big or too small for Him!

Stress

Matthew 11:28. Come to me, all who are weary & burdened, and I will give you rest.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.

Have a restful and doubt free week my friends!!!

Love Your Enemy, Featuring Paul Beverly

We have sadly become a selfish society. We only care about ourselves & certain others. We have those that bash our President because he wants to get along with Russia & North Korea. God didn’t say to hate your enemies, he said to love them. He also said to love your neighbors as yourself. Well, your neighbors are not just like you. They are black, white, brown, red, gay, straight, tall, short, big, small, or whatever. Jesus didn’t turn anyone away because they were different. He always taught & healed in love. God didn’t say we had to agree with or do what others do, only to love them. I’ve seen enough hate to last a lifetime, let’s love instead. Don’t bash what you dislike, but do praise what you love.

Mark 12:31 The second is this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself, there is no other commandment greater than these.”

Luke 6:27 “But I say to you that hear, love your enemies. Do good to those that hate you.”

Have a loving week my friends!!!
