The Fervor of the 120 Disciples of Jesus

Have a very Happy Easter!

Judges 2

10After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. 11Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lordand served the Baals. 12They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord’s anger 13because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths. 14In his anger against Israel the Lord gave them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist. 15Whenever Israel went out to fight, the hand of the Lord was against them to defeat them, just as he had sworn to them. They were in great distress.

Richard:  The next generation easily forgets the sacrifices and lessons that their parents learned.  I many ways this has happened in the United States (and elsewhere) and in the Unification movement.  How many second generation youth appreciate and value the Blessing and preparing for the Blessing of marriage, for example?

Ezekiel 44

23They are to teach my people the difference between the holy and the common and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean. Continue reading “The Fervor of the 120 Disciples of Jesus”

Testify to the Will of God as Jesus Did

Rev. Moon shares: “We are entering the era of God’s all-immanence, all-transcendence, supreme authority, and omnipotence.  There can be no obstacles in blessing couples centering on true love.  Why?  It is because the biggest problems in the world at present are juvenile promiscuity and the breakdown of families.”  CSG p. 1393

Judges 9

37But Gaal spoke up again: “Look, people are coming down from the central hill,c and a company is coming from the direction of the diviners’ tree.”

38Then Zebul said to him, “Where is your big talk now, you who said, ‘Who is Abimelek that we should be subject to him?’ Aren’t these the men you ridiculed? Go out and fight them!”

39So Gaal led outd the citizens of Shechem and fought Abimelek. 40Abimelek chased him all the way to the entrance of the gate, and many were killed as they fled. 41Then Abimelek stayed in Arumah, and Zebul drove Gaal and his clan out of Shechem.

42The next day the people of Shechem went out to the fields, and this was reported to Abimelek. 43So he took his men, divided them into three companies and set an ambush in the fields. When he saw the people coming out of the city, he rose to attack them. 44Abimelek and the companies with him rushed forward to a position at the entrance of the city gate. Then two companies attacked those in the fields and struck them down. 45All that day Abimelek pressed his attack against the city until he had captured it and killed its people. Then he destroyed the city and scattered salt over it.

 I Kings 18

7As Obadiah was walking along, Elijah met him. Obadiah recognized him, bowed down to the ground, and said, “Is it really you, my lord Elijah?”

8“Yes,” he replied. “Go tell your master, ‘Elijah is here.’ ”

9“What have I done wrong,” asked Obadiah, “that you are handing your servant over to Ahab to be put to death? 10As surely as the Lord your God lives, there is not a nation or kingdom where my master has not sent someone to look for you. And whenever a nation or kingdom claimed you were not there, he made them swear they could not find you. 11But now you tell me to go to my master and say, ‘Elijah is here.’ 12I don’t know where the Spirit of the Lord may carry you when I leave you. If I go and tell Ahab and he doesn’t find you, he will kill me. Yet I your servant have worshiped the Lord since my youth. 13Haven’t you heard, my lord, what I did while Jezebel was killing the prophets of the Lord? I hid a hundred of the Lord’s prophets in two caves, fifty in each, and supplied them with food and water. 14And now you tell me to go to my master and say, ‘Elijah is here.’ He will kill me!”

15Elijah said, “As the Lord Almighty lives, whom I serve, I will surely present myself to Ahab today.” Continue reading “Testify to the Will of God as Jesus Did”

Matthew 5:6

God blesses those people
who want to obey him
more than to eat or drink.
They will be given
what they want!

Judges 3:19

But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him. 20And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat. 21And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly: 22And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out. 23Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them.

Watch Out for Enemies

Judges 11

3So Jephthah fled from his brothers and settled in the land of Tob, where a gang of scoundrels gathered around him and followed him.

Richard:  Rev. Moon told his followers not to follow or support Hyun Jin Moon (the second son).  Many have ignored Rev. Moon’s guidance on this matter.

Psalms 118

1Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

his love endures forever.

2Let Israel say:

“His love endures forever.”
