BBC report of Bangladeshi men who have been kidnapped in their own village to Thailand for slavery…but miraculously escaped…

We hope anywhere you can…pray, help the fight against slavery…

These are human beings with families…and yet some see it fit to abuse them as such…

Luke 4:18    “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,”

Has Jesus’s commission to: poor,heartbroken,captives,blind and the bruised..this too should be our lifestyle…

God bless you

Luke 12:15 “Speaking to the people, he went on. ‘Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even if you have a lot.”

We thank God for abundance, that we can have a lot,as this scripture connotes.

However the encouragement from Jesus’s words today is simply: the higher we go, the more rooted we must become in JESUS Christ.

So as you go on your day today; remember these few words.

When that old bully named “Difficulty” pops up, God wants us to see and hear something more – something beyond the difficulty.

Camped on the edge of the Promised Land, Moses sent twelve scouts to scope out the land. Ten of the scouts brought back a negative report, but Joshua and Caleb kept their eyes on God, who was higher and bigger. Rather than being distracted by all that looked impossible, they saw all that was possible. And instead of fixating on the problems, they remembered God’s promise – a land of plenty for their people. They could see it, feel it, taste it.

They knew that the same miracles God had performed to get the children of Israel out of Egypt would suffice to take them into the Promised Land. This task was no harder, and the miracles required were no bigger. The God who did that was the same God who could do this. It never was about what they could not do; it was always about what God could and would do if His people would only believe in Him to do it!

Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” (Numbers 13:30)

Anonymous said: Your last post is strange. With the wedding pic behind the revelations verse. That's not talking about actual weddings there. I just don't want someone to be confused by that.

The marriage of God and his people (in this case symbolised by the Union of Christ and the Church) is a real marriage. In fact it was the first marriage, and every other marriage is scripturally modelled on that premise.

A classic example of this is in this scripture:

Ephesians 5:24    ” Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
5:25    Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
5:26    That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,”

As for the background picture of the happy couple: that is just imagery to emphasise, perhaps in more human terms the joy that Christ will have at the coming of his bride.

Jesus also uses the same kind of example:

Mathew 22:2    “The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,”

In this case the “Son” being JESUS Christ, and the “Father” being God the Father who sent JESUS Christ to pay his bride price at the cross so that he may obtain HIS lover at the end of time.
