    Day 16: Pillars

    Proclamation #11 “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God…” (Revelation 3:12a)             In the book of Job, which some believe to be the oldest book in the Bible. We find Job talking about pillars. Let us read, “The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.” (Job 26:11) This can be taken that the pillars are the sky, the mountain, heavenly host, or some other spiritual inference. No one really knows. In the book of 1st Samuel, we find “… For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.” (1Sa 2:8) This is…

    Day 17: Thrones

    Proclamation #12 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” (Revelation 3:20-22)             During the time of Jesus, it was the custom if you had a guest you wished to honor; you would kiss and anoint them upon their arrival. Oil…

Proclamation #13 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above…

    Day 19: Love Like The Fathers

    Affirmation #1 “As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you; continue ye in My love.” (John 15:9)             To be completely honest and transparent, I need to confess something. I find it hard to express the love of the eternal, being the finite and mortal being that I am. I have known God’s love all my life. It is sure and true. Yet, how do I share with you accurately the love by which the Father has loved the Son. Then explain the love of the Father and Son for humanity? Out of everything in this book, I fear this is the one that might fall short.…

    Day 20: Chosen By Him

    Affirmation #2 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” (John 15:16)             I remember when I was younger playing at recess. Football was usually the game of choice for our brief excursions outside. After the selection of two captains, they would take turns choosing who would be on their team. Nobody wanted to be picked last. Naturally, they would pick the best players first. Being picked last usually meant you were the least valued…
