Pre-Passover Meditation ~ ~ ~ It is No Secret What GOD Will Do !

Photo by The Order of the GOOD SHEPHERD+
ever liveth to make intercession
for us; 
O Come, Let us Adore HIM+. 

Psalm 68 

Let GOD arise, 
Let His enemies be scattered; 

Let those also who hate HIM
flee before HIM. 

Old Testament Lesson: Deuteronomy 4:23, 24 

Take heed unto yourselves, 
lest ye forget 
the covenant of the LORD thy GOD, 
which HE made with you, 
and make you a graven image, 
or the likeness of any thing, 
which the LORD thy GOD 
hath forbidden thee.

For the LORD thy GOD 
is a consuming fire, 
even a jealous GOD.

Epistle Lesson: Ephesians 2:1- 3

And you hath HE+ enlivened, 
who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Wherein in time past ye walked 
according to the course of this world, 
according to 
the prince of the power of the air, 
the spirit that now worketh 
in the children of disobedience:

Among whom also we all had 
our behavior in times past

in the lusts of our flesh,

 fulfilling the desires of the flesh and 
of the mind;

and were by nature 
the children of wrath, 
even as others.

The GOSPEL LESSON: Luke 6: 33-36

And if ye do good to them which do good to you, 
what thank have ye? 

for sinners also do even the same.

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, 
what thank have ye? 

for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

But love ye your enemies, 
and do good, 
and lend, 
hoping for nothing again;

and your reward shall be great, 

and ye shall be the children of the Highest: 

for HE is kind unto the unthankful 
and to the evil. 

Be ye therefore merciful, 
as your FATHER also is merciful.

Meditation ~

 We see Our LORD being so merciful to us sinners, that HE+ loved us and died for us while we were yet dead in our sins!   

And through HIS+ death, we gained life. 

Furthermore, that was and is the ONLY WAY sinners could ever gain both life here and now and life Eternal.  

Our FATHER'S wrath waxes heavily against those who set themselves against HIM morally or spiritually.  

HE is a consuming fire to those who align themselves with 
  • the course of this world, 
  • the prince of the power of the air, or
  • the spirit of disobedience. 

Our LORD'S words clearly show us how to be on GOD'S side.  The LORD JESUS clearly spoke to us about how to be a friend to GOD His FATHER.  

HE has not changed His Mind about what HE considers RIGHT... and what is WRONG .... for mankind to do .

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament contain words of truth which should bring conviction to us if we disobey the Written Word. 

It is no secret what GOD can do ! What HE'S done to others, HE will do to you ! 

Let Us Pray ~ ~ ~ 

O LORD of the Consuming Fire, we come before THEE now to ask of THEE mercy. 

We have done those things we ought NOT to have done. 

We have neglected doing those things which we know please THEE. 

Even worse, we have avoided Thy Face. 

We have avoided coming before THEE for correction. We have chosen to hide our hearts from conviction... because we do not want to change. 

Forgive us these sins. Help us to turn away from the course of this world.  Help us not to follow the lurings of the prince of the power of the air. Help us to forsake our own disobediences, once and for all times. 

Grant this we pray, through the merits of Thy Only-Begotten SON+, our LORD JESUS CHRIST, our ONLY MEDIATOR+ and ADVOCATE+, both now and forever. Amen.
