Isa 54:4 “Do not fear, For you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, For you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth, & will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.” -God

1Peter 4:16 (NKJV) “Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.”

I know.. you, who are suffering want to smack the person who is giving you problems. That’s our old nature rearing its ugly head.  Instead give a moment to catch your breath & recognise what the Word says here.  Give praise & glory to God thru your suffering and that you are giving that glory by going thru it without violence or harsh words.  If we do react in violence and/or cursing.. that only serves the enemy & gives glory to Satan. He deserves no glory or victory by our actions.. Amen? Amen!  So let’s pray for our prosecuties and love them.  All glory be to Him who is alone worthy of glory. Thank you Jesus for that wonderful opportunity to let our light shine bright for you.~Pastor Pete

Look at this as a text from God next time you’re trippin’ or dwelling on your troubles.  God’s got your back.  So keep grinding & smile.. knowing that God is bigger & able to ether that noise! ~Pastor Pete

Pick your “R’s” well.

Posted: August 10, 2012 in Uncategorized

In forming new or Christ like patterns into our lives it is vital to address the “R’s” .. meaning Rumor vs. Restoration:

Gal. 6:1 NKJV

“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are  spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.”

When we see our friends, brothers and/or sisters in a situation such as sin or they may have been victim of an embarrassing moment our natural reaction, oftentimes is to goof on them or talk to people other then them about what befell that victim.  The Bible instructions are to avoid the temptation to give into this behavior. Instead, we who have a relationship with Jesus & are equipped with a biblical understanding are to gently restore that person lest we give into our natural temptations & sometimes unintentionally do harm. Nothing hurts like having a rumor against you or hearing put downs or getting critical looks your direction.

We have an opportunity to rise to the occasion & be a help instead.  How great is the feeling when a person is not only in your corner but also there to lean on in a bad situation.  Therefore, next time a rumor comes your way stop that mouth and point them in the direction of the person & say without shame that you don’t play the rumor game.  Oral tradition would dictate ‘If they gossip to you about others, as soon as you leave they talkin’ smack on you!”  God is love so let’s be about it fam!   ~ Pastor Pete

Variations – Jehovah Tzidkaynu or Jehovah Tsidqenuw (yeh-ho-vaw’ tsid-kay’-noo)

Because of cults, superstitions and other off shoot religions I have encountered people that absolutely will not use the name Jehovah.  Not in conversation nor a sermon.  They say it’s just bad ju-ju or taboo.  Even heard the word blasphemy when referring to THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS aka Jehovah.  Since Christ has broken every curse, let us also consider insulating ourselves with some biblical wisdom so we can use His name once more and share that it is OK to drop the name of the Almighty with others that have stopped..

“In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this [is] His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”  ~Jer 23:6

(in Septuagint) kuriou tou theou hêmôn elalêsen pros hêmas…the Lord our God spoke to usZeph. 1:14

Jehovah is translated as “The Existing One” or “Lord.” The chief meaning of Jehovah is derived from the Hebrew word Havah meaning “to be” or “to exist.” It also suggests “to become” or specifically “to become known” – this denotes a God who reveals Himself unceasingly. Tsedek (tseh’-dek), from which Tsidkenu derived, means “to be stiff,” “to be straight,” or “righteous” in Hebrew. When the two words are combined…Jehovah Tsidkenu…it can be translated as “The Lord Who is our Righteousness” or “THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”

Further references of the name Jehovah Tsidkenu in the Old Testament: Jer 23:6; Jer 33:16   Now that was not so bad..huh? ~ Pastor Pete aka DJ one3
