Lord have mercy on our world today and especially America, the land, called the United States, which is so divided and it is in desperate need of  God in a true and living way.
The god of this world is running rampant and going about like the demoniac man in the book of Luke whom Jesus met along his journey doing good in the neighborhood. His name was the same to all who came, a healer, a helper, the son of Mary and Joseph, a carpenter with class who became an enemy of the Pharisees. Why?

Because his name is a name above every name, Jesus, the Son of God, from his Father he never departed. He walked and talked about the god of this world, the devil, and his children. He said, Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father. b ” 39“Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would c do what Abraham did. 40As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” 42Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 

Christ Jesus came to set the captives free. Yes, free to live in peace, freedom, and in perfect harmony. Harmony and unity have always been Christ messages, the Word of God in Christ letting his Light shine for the whole world to see. 

But some would have you to believe that the god of this world is the real deal. He is a liar and his description fits Jesus’s red letters depiction. I have been taught that anything in the Bible written in red is what Jesus Christ said, so if Jesus gives a depiction which is a description of the god of this world, the devil, I believe it’s what God said.

Remember in the book of John, where he talked about mansions, he said in red, in the King James Version, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.”

You see even Jesus know that God is God all by himself and he doesn’t need anybody else. We all move and have our being in Him. Jesus spoke truth to power so much so that he drew a crowd that upset the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Chief Priests, and the Scribes and they plotted and they schemed on how to drive Jesus outside but it didn’t work.

Because God is God all by himself and he doesn’t need anybody else.

In John’s gospel where Jesus encountered the man with legions and after he calmed the sea and after he rejected the plea of his disciples to come and see his mother and his brothers, he told his disciples about the importance of God’s message when he said to them about his mother and his brothers, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.” Practice is what is so clear here. Those who are practicing that which is contrary to God’s Word, his Logos, that became flesh and dwelt among them in John’s gospel chapter one. His words, as in this parable, are so prevalent in our world today. The riches of this world is choking out so many of God’s people because of the influence of the ruler of its domain. Satan has become the ruler over too many lives today and it is not right in a very real and righteous way. Remember the message in red is what, according to the Bible, what Jesus said. Read and hear what he said in the book of John look at chapter 8:23,  “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24  He continued, “Just what I have been telling you from the beginning.”  26“I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is trustworthy, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.

God is God all by himself and he doesn’t need anybody else.

Even Jesus incarnate knew this and he acted accordingly all the way to the cross ascending  to his rightful role with his righteous soul. God is True and Living; therefore, like Christ said, If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 

The Christ in us is the hope of glory and this is what gives us the peace that passes all understanding and the power to know the real story.

God is God all by himself and he doesn’t need anybody else.

Happy New Year
