John 7

Jesus replied:

I am not teaching something that I thought up. What I teach comes from the one who sent me. 17 If you really want to obey God, you will know if what I teach comes from God or from me.Richard:  Jesus speaks about the very important issue of obedience to God’s Will.  Are we leading our lives in a way that pleases God with obeisance to His Will?

 

Isaiah 37

About this same time, the king of Assyria learned that King Tirhakah of Ethiopia[a] was on his way to attack him. Then the king of Assyria sent some messengers with this note for Hezekiah:

10 Don’t trust your God or be fooled by his promise to defend Jerusalem against me. 11 You have heard how we Assyrian kings have completely wiped out other nations. What makes you feel so safe?

Richard:  Satan tries to cast fear into our hearts.  It is up to us to reject this assault and have faith in God, God’s word and Jesus.

31 Just then, the Lord let Balaam see the angel standing in the road, holding a sword, and Balaam bowed down.

Acts 16

Luke 13

12 When Jesus saw the woman, he called her over and said, “You are now well.” 13 He placed his hands on her, and right away she stood up straight and praised God.

Richard:  I believe I can help people heal by prayer and the laying of hands.

Isaiah 59

You don’t know how
to live in peace
    or to be fair with others.
The roads you make are crooked;
your followers cannot find peace.

Find the One that Brings the Words Lost in the Garden of Eden

Mark 12

13 The Pharisees got together with Herod’s followers.[a] Then they sent some men to trick Jesus into saying something wrong. 14 They went to him and said, “Teacher, we know that you are honest. You treat everyone with the same respect, no matter who they are. And you teach the truth about what God wants people to do. Tell us, should we pay taxes to the Emperor or not?”

15 Jesus knew what they were up to, and he said, “Why are you trying to test me? Show me a coin!”

16 They brought him a silver coin, and he asked, “Whose picture and name are on it?”

“The Emperor’s,” they answered.

17 Then Jesus told them, “Give the Emperor what belongs to him and give God what belongs to God.” The men were amazed at Jesus.

Isaiah 63

But his people remembered
what had happened
    during the time of Moses.[d]
Didn’t the Lord[e] bring them
and their leaders
    safely through the sea?
Didn’t he[f] give them
    his Holy Spirit?
12 The glorious power of the Lord
    marched beside Moses.
The Lord will be praised forever
    for dividing the sea.
