We are living in an area that has the State Patrol, County Sheriff’s Department, and Yakama Reservation Police, to make sure we as citizens are safe and secure at all times in our homes and highways. Should they not all be governed by equal rights for all, so we have lawfulness and not lawlessness as we are seeing too often in our valley. Should we not expect all law enforcement to be working together even the State Patrol on our Reservation.
We have two nations in one area that should be united in what is good for all, for one race is no better than the other and we are causing injustice to divide and prevent all lives matter. Lord helps those who call upon Him and we need to become united or we all fall!
I am so thankful that God has given us all the ability to be civil as we accept abiding in the vine: Jesus for without Jesus in our lives we will never have the peace of God or love that conquers the lusts of the flesh. We are not only seeing lawlessness in our Yakama Valley we are seeing it around the world for we have forgotten who created us, and for what reason, as we have not accepted His way, truth and life that produces fruits that are good for all.
The Bible says in Ephesians 2: 10 We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. God does not create junk we become junkies as we do our thing with no regard for others. Pride is normally wanting out way for it is in the middle of prIde. This happens when we forget who we are Gods child, that needs to be proud of who they are, for they are those who are thinking of others. Being prOud is the way God created us so we could get along with one another as we show concern for the well fair of one another.
Everyone had no choice where they were going to be born, yet everyone born has to live and grow up to become an instrument that is enabled by either God or remain in the flesh that is certainly not Godly. We are all born sinners in need of help, Dads and Moms are needed to give us security that is loving and kind for no one was born doing right, but have to be taught right from wrong in eating, drinking, sleeping, playing and working so they can be good civil citizens loving one another. I find that unless the Lords will be done, we are going to enjoying doing wrong and evil, rather that good and wholesome benefiting one another.
God saw the law was not good enough so gave His Son Jesus, to come and live among us, so we could accept Him and abide in Him, so we could be empowered to live the life of an Ambassador in the Kingdom of God.
Ephesians 6 gives us the assurance we need as Children of God that we can grow up to become representatives of the family of God'
Children and Parents
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,”which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” This goes for all even when our parents are not serving the Lord. God gives us a love for everyone regardless of how they may treat us.
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.  It is so easy to provoke our children for anger rules most adults today and even in our Schools where discipline is lacking for we do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings. So we are seeing the students really punishing the parents and those in authority, which is seen by some many families dysfunctional today with mental problems.
Bondservants and Masters
Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free. What a comforting thought for we need to obey God and follow His principles to achieve our potential as individual. This happen when I submit to His way, truth and life. We are all working for either God or the enemy and it is seen by how we treat one another.
And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also[b] is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him. Everyone God created is in control of who they want to be like. This is not a threat but a fact and facts are proven by performance. I know whom I have believed how about you!
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. What a picture here of a warrior, someone engaged in defending the truth by doing all that requires one to be a winner. Everyone is competing against evil and today evil seems to be surrounding us all around the world, causing the very elect to be concerned, so they too are not defeated. We need to be full of the Holy Spirit of God to be empowered by God as an ambassador.


14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, Our waist holds our pants up and it seems we enjoy baggy pants and exposing what should be private. Look at the sexual involvement by those in authority not only in the USA but around the world. We feel you only live once; YOLO which is not true for you die and after the judgement going to either hell or heaven based on who you put your trust.  having put on the breastplate of righteousness, This breastplate is who you are worshiping, reverencing, have faith and hope into answer your prayers. This breastplate is given by God when you accept abiding in Him so you can produce fruit that is good for all, as it is truth we need to become righteous. . 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Shodding your feet is necessary, for the path is steep and rocky, so without our feet being protected where we go we will get blisters which will prevent you from climbing the ladder of success, so you can’t  achieve your potential. Just as a horse needs a bridle, so it needs shoes to prevent sores. It seems today we have so many sores we can’t become what God has in store for us. 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Above all we need to have faith in God who created us and that is learning how to abide in God and letting Him empower us to be like Him, for that is who we are created to be like, God and certainly not like Satan who is a liar. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, Do you have your helmet on so your protected from hitting others, so you do not get a concussion. Helmets are to protect us not cause us to hit one another in the head with our head knowledge. Be care it fits and can take all the hits from the world of Satan’s so you are able to resist evil. Helmet do not do the thinking but it is your head that needs to be engaged and protected from evils bait.   and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; It is as we hide the word of God in our hearts we are able to cut out all the evil that wants to destroy our lives.18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, Praying is the only way we can communicate and have a personal relationship with God who loves and cares for us, wanting us to become more and more like Him as He empowers us for service.  being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. That is. The reason we need to wait, watch so we can see reality that is the truth for many times to day we are hearing non truth and that is what cause lawlessness that seems to be abounding around the world. We need to be canned in the pressure cooker of the Lord so we do not get spoiled but are preserved tasting good all the time, not just when in Church but at the job and in the home we are living for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords as one of many of His ambassadors. This is not an impossibility but a right the Lord has given to us, as a privilege to be a light in a world that. is getting blacker and blacker.
A Gracious Greeting
21 But that you also may know my affairs and how I am doing, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, will make all things known to you; 22 whom I have sent to you for this very purpose, that you may know our affairs, and that he may comfort your hearts. We all need friends for they either make us or destroy our character, this is the reason the song was written What a friend we have in Jesus for He knows all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer! Oh; what peace we often forfeit. Oh: what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry, everything to God in Prayer. Have we trials and temptation? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged, take it to the Lord in Prayer; Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrow share? Jesus knows our every weakness, take it to the Lord in prayer. Are you weak and heavy laden; cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge; take it to the Lord in Prayer. Do they friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer; in His arms He’ll take and shield thee, thou will find a solace there. This was written in 1886 by Joseph Scriven who was to get married and the night before he lost his wife, as she drowned and he sat down and wanted to comfort his mother with a pome, it later became a song that made him realize he had to take it to the Lord in Prayer. This is repeated 8 times for we all have sins of sorrow, sighs of despair and discouragement and discomfort of distress, but take it to the Lord in prayer for What a friend we have in Jesus. God is a friend that will never forsake you but always with outstretched hands saying come unto me and I will give you rest.
23 Peace to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen. What a fitting way Paul had as a prisoner to say, peace and love to you as your faith is in God who gives grace to all who love Him and adore Him by resting in the vine; Jesus.
Who are you abiding in is the biggest question one can ask for it is either going to lead to everlasting punishment in hell or everlasting joy, peace and love beyond anything we can imagine.
Blessing to you as you look at reality that gives you the ability to achieve your potential!
