My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus, thank You for everything. I'm despondent over news of one that does not know You, but think that they're their own, and nobody can rule over them. I pray that before You call the Death Angel to them, that in Your un-bounding love and mercy they hear of Your Word and Come for their soul salvation. I pray that you whom is reading this prayer pray also for this lost soul. You don't need to know the name  of the perso, just pray asking the Lord that the person be touched with His Word and Come in a true genuine repentance for their soul salvation. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. - Min. Lynwood F. Mundy

(I used the 3rd person pronoun, but it is a singular person. However I used the 3rd person pronoun.)

It is a blessed thing, that when we are most cast down, then it is that we are most lifted up by the consolations of the Spirit. One reason is, because trials make more room for consolation. Great hearts can only be made by great troubles. The spade of trouble digs …

Liar or Lord?

February 12: Liar or Lord?
John 5:16–30

When Jesus made a defense of His healing on the Sabbath, He was upping the ante instead of defusing the situation: “My Father is working until now, and I am working” (John 5:17). For the Jews, such a claim was blasphemous. Not only was Jesus breaking the Sabbath, He was equating Himself with the Father and thus claiming to be God. He was presenting the people with a choice.
Jesus provides compelling insight into His relationship with God. Jesus’ authority stems from His relationship with the Father, which is one of complete submission. In fact, He can do nothing on His own. Whatever the Father does, He does likewise. There is complete trust and openness—the Father loves the Son and shows Him all that He is doing. Both the Father and the Son give life. But with authority, the Father has also given the Son judgment.
Jesus presents His audience with an ultimatum as He carries out God’s will on earth: “The one who does not honor the Son does not hono…
