Open The Gates

Psalm 118:14-21 "The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation. The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. The right hand of the Lord is exalted;The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. I will not die, but live, and tell of the works of the Lord. The Lord has disciplined me severely, but He has not given me over to death. Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; The righteous will enter through it. I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, and You have become my salvation. 

Isaiah 12:1-6 "And in that day you will say: “O Lord, I will praise You; Though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’” Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. And in that day you will say: “Praise the Lord, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples, Make mention that His name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, For He has done excellent things; This is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion, For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!”

"The order of resurrection"

     When speaking about heaven, I noticed the church misunderstands the verse in Hebrews 9:27 thinking we'll die and stay in heaven forever but they need to read further. Hebrews 9:28 says "so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him."
Yeshua is coming back to rule in the millennium reign. People mix verses about the rapture and Yeshua's second coming together not understanding what Paul is speaking about. When he said "vs27 appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, vs28 appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him." He is talking about Yeshua reigning as king over us and at the end, put death under His feet. Throwing satan and those who followed his ways into the lake of fire forever.
     In 1 Corinthians 15:20-26 speaks of "the order of resurrection" and what will happen; "But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death."
     Right now Heaven is just one big giant Noah's Ark. It is the New Jerusalem that will come down from heaven and be on the new earth only after millennium reign & judgment seat. When Yeshua puts death under His feet and gives the kingdom back into Abba's hands.

1 Corinthians 15:28 "When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all."

Cast our crowns

Whew, I almost lost this one. I tried to find this song on the web for a long time. This one is not that old but like the others, I came up empty. Then when I moved to the new apt house, I went through an old container full of cassettes tapes my mom gave me and found the album it was on. Enjoy :0)

"Cast our crowns" Morgan Cryar 

Reading revelation by the light of the moon
Trying to figure out if we are leaving soon
Times are hard but there's work to do
This things bigger than me and you
Its one for all and all for one
We better get doing, if we're gonna get done

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

Trouble on the left and trouble on the right, yea
But there is a vision giving me hope tonight 
There's a great white throne and a glassy seat
A humble bend in every knee,
The saints all gathered one by one
A voice like thunder says were done

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

Lighting flashes from His eyes holy, holy
No more time for compromise holy, holy
Every knee will bow, every tongue confess 
Jesus is the Lord, the king of righteousness

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

Through it all

2013 has been a very hard year. A lot of up's & downs, trials and loss. My life did a 180 during that year. It began with not being a firefighter anymore, the station closed. The doctor's billing office used the wrong code and BCBS is charging me when it was suppose to be a preventive code and no charge. They still do not have that resolved since last January's visit. Seed's has changed a lot and move out of the area. I had to put my cat Chance down, the tumor across his neck became so large it was making him choke while he ate. The doctor wouldn't remove it because of the jugular. I also had to move to a different apartment. The landlord needed to renovate the old apartment. I had to be out by end of November and I now pay 300.00 more for the new place. Yips! Hopefully soon I'll own my own house. Can't play football anymore as well. So last year, there was a lot of pain but I know Abba is with me through it all and whatever reason it is this way, it is His alone. I must be moved by Him only and be ready to do His will in whatever circumstance i'm in. His will not mine; His Spirit guiding me through it all.
