CHRONICLE'S PEN

We Are The Light Of The World 

The Bible says, 

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14,16 KJV  We are here after we are saved to win others to Christ Jesus, also of course to give Glory, Honor and Praise to Our Lord and Savior. 

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23 KJV

What does Compel mean:? bring about (something) by the use of force or pressure.... So that means to try very very hard... We need to be about The Father's business.. We can see by the signs of the time, that we are running out of time.. Bring someone JESUS, for truly the fields are white and it is Harvest Time..

Think On Him This Morning 

As you get out of bed in the morning, be aware of My Presence with you. You may not be thinking clearly yet, but I am. Your early morning thoughts tend to be anxious ones until you get connected with Me. Invite Me into your thoughts by whispering My Name. Suddenly your day brightens and feels more user-friendly. You cannot dread a day that is vibrant with My Presence. You gain confidence through knowing that I am with you—that you face nothing alone. Anxiety stems from asking the wrong question: “If such and such happens, can I handle it.” The true question is not whether you can cope with whatever happens, but whether you and I can handle anything that occurs. It is you-and-I-together factor that gives you confidence to face the day cheerfully. Psalm 5:3. Psalm 63:1. Philippians 4:13

Love 

1 Corinthians 13:1-8 (KJV) 

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

Matthew 22:36-39 says,

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Jeremiah 31:3 says,

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

Matthew 5:43-45 says,

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

John 3:16 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Submit Yourself to God 

James 4:7 

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 

8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 

17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. 

Revelation 2:4 

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 

James 1:13,14,21,22 

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 

14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 

2 Samuel 22:31 

As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. 

Psalm 9:10 

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. 

Psalm 18:30 

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

Lead Me Lord I trust YOU 

Do we really trust God to lead us and guide us in all we do according to HIS will? Proverbs 3:5-6 says:

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Sometimes it may be hard to trust with all your heart, but try him and try to believe that he has your BEST interest in mind and knows what is best for YOU. Pray to HIM for daily strength in your trial.. and as you commune with Him you will start to feel that peace that only HE can give.

2 Samuel 22:31 ...As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

2 Kings 18:5 ...He trusted in the Lord God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him

Psalm 9:10 ...And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

*** Take a few minuted this morning, and pray and just whisper, "Lord Jesus I TRUST YOU with everything that concerns me and my family!

Am I This Kind of Man? 

While studying Second Timothy, I ran across this quote from Chuck Swindoll. I had to stop and take stock. Am I this kind of Man??? 

“Second Timothy brings us to the brink of death, forcing us to consider its reality and how we might react when faced with it. Paul’s response instructs us still today. His mind was not on himself, dwelling on the injustice that had befallen him. Instead, trusting that God had him right where He wanted him, the aging apostle turned his attention to others, specifically to the church and to his young protégé, Timothy. 

Where do you hope your thoughts linger as you come to the end of your days?”

Treat Everyone Equal 

Just something to think about, how do we treat people? Do we treat all equal? Dear Lord help us to treat everyone the same, like your word says for us to do. Lets read a little from the bible about this matter..

James 2:1-9 KJV 

 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.  For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;  And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:  Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?  Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?  But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?  Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?  If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:  But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

Romans 2:11 says "There is NO RESPECT OF PERSONS with God"  He loves us all equal and what he does for me He will do for you. What He does for you He will do for me.. He don't love the one that has the good works more..

Lord help us to treat everyone equal, from the homeless person to the president. You never know you could be entertaining angels unaware. Hebrews 13:2 says "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."

Jesus Christ The Servant, an Example to each of us 

"The Servant Jesus Christ, all the way to His Death on the Cross He Served, and should be an example of how we treat people today" 

-Jesus came and lived the ultimate example to us and how to treat others. 

- He says to "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the... evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:44,45 KJV 

- When they had punished and beat Him, He Said "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. Luke 23:24 KJV 

-He went on to say in Matthew "But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 

- He said to "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matthew 7:12 KJV 

- He said "Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: James 1:19 KJV 

-A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. Proverbs 15:18 KJV 

- He was a mighty KING but put down any selfish will of his own, living a servant example to us and painfully laying His life down willfully for us. He was the perfect example and road map for us. 

- Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. Luke 22:42 KJV 

THE WILL OF HUMAN MAN IS SELFISH, and is READY TO SAY WHATEVER TO GET HIS WORD IN, But IF WE WOULD just STOP and think WWJD. We are ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR WORDS, CHOOSE THEM CAREFULLY. 

-Some thinks it is being RUN OVER, to let the other have the last word... but look what the KING of KINGS went through... Our example is HE.

Press on and do what God has called you to do, He will lead you! 

Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha . . . saw him no more -2 Kings 2:11-12 
It is not wrong for you to depend on your "Elijah" for as long as God gives him to you. But remember that the time will come when he must leave and will no longer be your guide and your leader, because God does not intend for him to stay. Even the thought of that causes you to say, "I cannot continue without my 'Elijah.' " Yet God says you must continue. 
Alone at Your "Jordan" (2 Kings 2:14). The Jordan River represents the type of separation where you have no fellowship with anyone else, and where no one else can take your responsibility from you. You now have to put to the test what you learned when you were with your "Elijah." You have been to the Jordan over and over again with Elijah, but now you are facing it alone. There is no use in saying that you cannot go- the experience is here, and you must go. If you truly want to know whether or not God is the God your faith believes Him to be, then go through your "Jordan" alone. 
Alone at Your "Jericho" (2 Kings 2:15). Jericho represents the place where you have seen your "Elijah" do great things. Yet when you come alone to your "Jericho," you have a strong reluctance to take the initiative and trust in God, wanting, instead, for someone else to take it for you. But if you remain true to what you learned while with your "Elijah," you will receive a sign, as Elisha did, that God is with you. 
Alone at Your "Bethel" (2 Kings 2:23). At your "Bethel" you will find yourself at your wits' end but at the beginning of God's wisdom. When you come to your wits' end and feel inclined to panic- don't! Stand true to God and He will bring out His truth in a way that will make your life an expression of worship. Put into practice what you learned while with your "Elijah"- use his mantle and pray (see 2 Kings 2:13-14). Make a determination to trust in God, and do not even look for Elijah anymore. (COPIED FROM SOMEONE ELSE.. BUT GOD IS SAYING, PUT YOUR CONFIDENCE IN ME, NOT IN MAN TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU DO, AS HUMANS WE GET DEPENDENT ON OTHERS TO HELP US TO DO WHAT WE FEEL THAT WE ARE CALLED TO DO, THEN WHEN THEY ARE GONE, WE ARE LOST. BUT GOD SAYS GO ON, THE FIELDS ARE WHITE IT IS HARVEST TIME.)
