Greetings in the name of Our LORD and Sovereign (Our [God] Father who is in heaven, for hallowed is HIS name.) through HIS Son (my Lord), Jesus - the Christ, and on HIS Account I bid Each One, and All of You, that "Blessings attend Each One, and All of You, that the King of Kings; being the High Priest of Melchizedek forever and the Prince of Peace, give Each One, and All of You, that peace which passes all mortal understanding (and wisdom) and when Each One of All of You has finished Your course (being of memorable, full, and rich days) before the LORD on earth may the KING OF GLORY welcome You to HIS Glorious Kingdom in the name of HIS Son - Jesus; the High Priest of Melchizedek, Amen. "The LORD gives and takes away". It seems that in conversation(s) at some time concerning a separation from something (or, death of someone) cherished or loved/honored, including with Christians, believe God takes away the good thing(s) or gift(s) HE gives us. They always seem to state from [JOB 1:21 (NASB)]And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, And naked I shall return there. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD."[ ] I've heard this countless times at funerals from clergy and from people that have been separated from. [Lit. Trans. from Greek: ROMANS 11:29]without repentance For the free gifts and the calling - of God.[ ] [ROMANS 11:29 (NASB)]for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.[ ] This is to say, that the gift(s) God blesses One with HE does not take back - they are irrevocably the One HE gives them to. But this is not to say that HE will not try us, that is to say; HE will trial us into an occasional slippery position to check our footing in faith(fulness) on occasion. The story of Abraham and Isaac concludes pretty much: [Lit. Trans. from Hebrew: GENESIS 22:11-12]And called to him the Angel of Jehovah from the heavens and said, Abraham! Abraham! And he said, I am here. And He said not Do lay your hand on the boy, and not do to him anything. For now I know that a fearer-God you (are), and not you have withheld your son, your only one, from Me.[ ] [GENESIS 22:11-12 (NASB)]But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven, and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am." And he said, Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."[ ]. And JOB displays an aspect of this "trying" as well (as described later below). Let us consider this; It's Satan's position to do away with good things that God gives. Satan devises through deceit, cheating, stealing, killing/murdering, destroying, and anything thing else not good or does not honorably provision edifying goodness. Jesus said: [Lit. Trans. from Greek: JOHN 10:10]The thief not comes except that he may steal and slay and destroy; I came that life they may have, and abundantly may have.[ ] [JOHN 10:10 (NASB)]"The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they may have life, and might have it abundantly.[ ] Who is the thief? The demons or Satan himself; deceiver(s), destroyer(s), takers of life ... The Captain of sin is the mastermind behind every bad thing here on and about the earth, it has been that way since the "apple" - for the reasoning behind this is aspect of "every good thing comes from above, from God". [Lit. Trans. from Greek: JAMES 1:17]Every giving good and every gift perfect from above is, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom not there is variation or of turning shadow.[ ] [JAMES 1:17 (NASB)]Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.[ ] Honestly, from what I can filter about reading through JOB is that I don't believe JOB really knew what was the truth concerning Satan (but then again the time of JOB was after the Great Deluge with Noah and prior to the time Abraham and it is the earliest "Book" of the Bible that was recorded and God ...wasn't pleased... with man too much after the "apple" - the Book of GENESIS was written many years later in history). JOB appears that he couldn't get God right to begin with, remember even though JOB was considered just and right by the people - JOB was self-righteous and God allowed Satan to afflict JOB so Satan could tempt the man into cursively blaming God for the troubles and griefs JOB was being tormented with. Let us walk towards the LORD God through HIS Son, Jesus - the Christ, in our blessed daily walk (constitution) and not away into death and separation from HIS Love for us - HIS greatest creation(s). Here's some good news about Life in Jesus: Satan has absolutely no power over you unless you forsake the Lamb of God (Grace) because then you have to deal with the Lion of Judah (Judgement). Satan's entire premise and goal is to undo, usurp, overthrow [and such on, so forth] everything God has done, is doing, and will do. Have you ever heard the Edmund Burke statement, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing."? (It may have originated from a Reverend by the name of Charles F. Aked who stated "It has been said that for evil men to accomplish their purpose it is only necessary that good men should do nothing." around 1920.) [JAMES 1:15 (NASB)]Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.[ ] [Lit. Trans. from Greek: HEBREWS 10:29-31]by how much think you of worse will be thought worthy (to receive) punishment he the Son of God having trampled, and the blood of the covenant common having deemed by which he was sanctified, and the Spirit of grace having insulted; we know for the (One) having said, To Me (is) vengeance, I will repay says (the) Lord; and again, (The) Lord will judge the people of Him. A fearful thing (it is) to fall into (the) hands God of (the) living.[ ] [HEBREWS 10:29-31 (NASB)]How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY." And again, "THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE." It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.[ ] In referring to the above JAMES 1:17: [Lit. Trans. from Hebrew: JEREMIAH 29:11-13]For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find (Me) when you seek Me with all your heart. And I will be found by you, says Jehovah.[ ] [JEREMIAH 29:11-13 (NASB)]'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not calamity to give you a future and a hope. 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 'And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.[ ] We're all overcomers through the blood of Christ Jesus. [Lit. Trans. from Greek: LUKE 10:19]Behold, I have given you the authority - to tread on snakes and scorpions, and on all the power of the enemy, and nothing you in no way shall hurt.[ ] [LUKE 10:19 (NASB)]"Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure you.[ ] God wants us to prosper in everything. I am knowledgeable as towards, and understand, that creation waits for the revealing of the sons of God. The Power of Sanctification: The Question of Living, ROMANS 8:1-39: [Expectant living, ROMANS 8:18-30 (NASB)]For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body. For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one also hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren; and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.[ ] [Exultant living, ROMANS 8:31-39]What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who shall separate us from from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, "FOR THY SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED." But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.[ ] My daily prayers include the rejoicing thanks and joy for what daily life is, as well as was witnessed being as to me the moment(s) was (were). My daily prayers come from all that I can/could [feebly] muster. All I have to do is faithfully stand-fast and faithfully gear to listen patiently in attentive faithfulness during my affliction of spirit while faithfully waiting for HIS perfect and faithful promise of HIS Son's faithful and merciful love. I, through the Scriptures, believe that a fleshed man is here once and only once. But I believe all things are possible to him who truly believes that God can, and does occasionally, remake in kind-copy (for HIS Will to be done on earth as it is in the Heavens. ... for who knows where the love of God goes ...), the creation that is as it was written, [Lit. Trans. from Hebrew: GENESIS 1:28]"And blessed them God, and said to them God, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and it subdue; and rule over the fish of the sea, and over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth."[ ] We are stewards and even more so since the "apple". Just have to truly believe and put the world and its sinfulness away from us. There is only one thing I desire and want and that is to be separated from Satan. Satan is the cause of bad health, bad decision, failed relationships/marriages, death before old age, bad things happening, etc., etc., ... to us. Life isn't always as we see it through our physically limited eyesight. As we grow older, Life sometimes becomes so complex (because One absently fails to remember the knowledge that "where one decision made now affects another decision [or, other decision(s)] later on in life (that is to say that: is our conviction(s) (that which we believe and live by) that convict us)). The Family of Judah [1 CHRONICLES 4:9-10 (New KJV)]Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, "Because I bore him in pain.". And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested.[ ] (1 CHRONICLES verses 9-10: [... a shepherd?, Jabez. Through the prayer of faith, he overcame the sorrow indicated by the meaning of his name which literally means "He will cause pain", or otherwise in context as "Sorrowful".] {[1 CHRONICLES 4:9-10 (KJV)]And Ja'-bez was more honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Ja'-bez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Ja'-bez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.[ ] The use of the wording "more honorable than his brothers" can be referenced to the termed "deferred not to do the thing (or, did not delay to do the thing) because he had delight in the LORD" of GENESIS 34:19. The use of the phrase "enlarge my coast" can be translated into/as: increase my wealth, prosperity, abilities, territory, boundary, etc.. The use of the phrase "grieve me" can be translated into/as: cause me distress.} [Lit. Trans. from Hebrew: 1 CHRONICLES 4:9-10]And was Jabez more honorable than his brothers. And his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bore (him) with sorrow. And called Jabez to the God of Israel, saying, Oh that indeed, You would bless me and make larger 'my border, and would be Your hand with me, and You would keep from evil, that not it may grieve me! And gave God what he asked.[ ]) This [faithful: aside from the Mosaic "Law of Works (which provisioned no salvation under the law of Moses)" in which he (Jabez) was under] prayer of Jabez has been reputed to be life-changing for the simple christian [lifestyle] into an exulted christian [lifestyle] within an exercised 30-day period of use (in earnest) and then continued in use as daily prayer. - in other words: be careful [extremely prudent for goodness sake] of what you ask for, you just might get it all - if truly asked for in Jesus Christ's Name. [PROVERBS 9:9-12]Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man, and he will increase his learning. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you. If you are wise, you are wise for yourself, And if you scoff, you alone will bear it.[ ] - for there is a time for everything under the sun in its appropriate time (ECCLESIASTES 3:1-11). [PROVERBS 22:3-6]The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, But the naive go on, and are punished for it. The reward of humility and the fear of the LORD are the riches, honor and life. Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards himself will be far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.[ ] (see PSALM 119:1-176) I pray YOU LORD God through YOUR Beloved Son, Jesus - the Christ, that YOU would indeed bless each and all of these children of YOUR Son's creation with the necessities needed to thrive in this world without forsaking YOU and all that YOU were, are, and are to be and increase each and all of these children of YOUR Son's creation boundaries, and with YOUR Hand(s) be with each and all of these children of YOUR Son's creation always for/in/by/through YOUR Son's namesake, and that YOU; God Almighty - The Most High and the Creator of the Heavens and the earth - and all their host, would keep each and all of these children of YOUR Son's creation from evil all the child's/children's days, that not it may grieve any one and/or all of these children of YOUR Son's creation for any reason in his walk before YOU here on earth. In the name of Jesus - the Christ, Amen. Before parting, one last thing related to prayer: (an old-time, ancient story) "Way back when before Jesus, the Nazarene, walked about here on earth. Rabbi Eliezer once instituted thirteen communal fasts and rain did not come. When the people began to leave (at the end of the thirteenth one) he said to them: Have you arranged graves for yourselves? The people broke into sobbing, then the rain fell. Another time, Rabbi Eliezer went before the ark and recited twenty-four blessings and was not answered, Rabbi Akiva (who was less senior) went after him and said: Our Father, Our King, You are our only Sovereign! Our Father, Our King, on your account take mercy upon us! Then the rain fell. The Rabbis began to murmur against Rabbi Eliezer, A heavenly voice went out and said, "It is not because this one (speaking of Rabbi Akiva) is greater than that one (speaking of Rabbi Eliezer) [that his prayers were answered] rather it is because this one (speaking again of Rabbi Akiva) called forth God's attributes, and this one (speaking again of Rabbi Eliezer) did not call forth God's attributes." Everything now in Christ Jesus (even invoking God's attributes) is through the name of Jesus; the only intercessor between God and me and me and God. For myself I pray: LORD, I am weak and I, admittedly being of sinful flesh, am not acknowledgeable for worthiness of or in YOUR Presence except by and through the personally accepted salvation offered through YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, my Savior and my Lord - Forgive me Father as I have forgiven those who have sinned against me. By YOUR Merciful Grace LORD Almighty I give thanks, and know this is for YOUR Glory, Honor, Blessing, Strength, Power, and Dominion for all things in the name of my Lord - YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, to YOU, even the Father; and I am subject in fellowship by the body of Christ to one another as I fear YOU. In the name of YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, the High Priest of Melchizedek forever, Amen. God Bless Us All, Each and Everyone, in YOUR Will with Merciful and with Everlasting, Hallelujah - He is risen and sits on the Heavens Mercy Seat!, Lovingkindness Through YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, the King of Glory. Amen.
