John 1 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Eternal Word
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John here is speaking about God, the word of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are involved in the word of God, it is a two-fold word conceived and uttered, intelligence and utterance. Intelligence is thought that is understood. Everyone here had to learn to speak, it does not just happen. We are taught our particular language, for we all were given the ability to hear and think. God created us with a body, soul and spirit that comes alive according to our parent’s behavior and attitude, until we see for ourselves the difference between good and evil. Lord help us to think about godliness, which is against our nature that is bent on sinning at birth. The Lord wants us to hear Him, so we can become like Him. Matthew 17:5 show Peter, James and John with Jesus at the transfiguration of Moses and Elias as their faces shone like the sun as they talk to them. Peter wanted to build a tabernacle one for Jesus, Moses and Elias but a voice out of heaven said. This is my beloved Son, of whom I am well pleased hear Him. Everyone does not come into this world hearing the voice of the Lord. We hear the voice of our parents and sometimes it is not a godly voice. That is the reason when parents know the Lord, the first voice a Child hears is a Godly voice that is full of love and it is seen and expressed over and over again. That is conceiving knowledge, knowing the Lord came to give us salvation, redeeming us from sin that destroys us from becoming like God. God is always speaking to us and during this Easter Season Church are fuller and the Gospel Jesus saves is being broadcast around the world. He is the truth that is so needed today. He is the life that needs to be in our words as we proclaim Jesus save, heals and satisfies every longing of the body, soul and spirit. He is the faithful witness, for He is alive and His spirit is wanting us to hear, God his Son; Jesus, and the Holy Spirit loves us. He came to set us free of all addictions, He came to give us life abundant with the Joy of the Lords approval. He has a home prepared for us now and forever in Heaven. He existed in the beginning before time, He bought the world into existence. The word had a being before the world had a beginning. The word was ever present, it had no beginning it was always alive. It is the word that sustains all we see within nature and the body of humankind and his soul and spirit.
He was in the beginning with God. He existed in the beginning, the world was in the beginning, but the word always was. This is hard to phantom the word had a being before the world had a beginning. The word is not bound by time, it has and will always be alive. The word co-existed with the Father in the beginning, that is what we see in essence and substance of how God created all thing for goodwill and peace. The word and God are in total agreement in counsel and design, for God’s word the Bible is the best counsel known to man. It is a mystery how God redeems by His word, as it is hide in God before all the world. It is Gods words that bring us to God that we are celebrating to day. How marvelous and wonderful this word of God is to us yet look at the suffering Jesus went through on the cross as he prayed, Father let this cup pass from me. Yet not my will thy will be done. Jesus did it all and said in Matthew 11:26 to 27 Even so Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father; and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father, neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal. Then Jesus says Come unto me, all that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest unto your souls, for My yoke is easy, and my burden is light. God gave His word so we can be bought up in His family, as we are abiding in the Vine; Jesus. We speak the language of our heavenly Father. What a truth Gods word has the story of His birth, His works as a Child of the Lords, His rejection, denial and conviction as a criminal that did nothing but save, heal, feed, deliver and bring people peace in a world out of order and yet He did it all that we might go through this same world with victory in knowing God lives in our lives, He is not dead He is alive, just as He has always been alive to create within us His image to be like Him.  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. He, God, His Word and the Holy Spirit are what makes believers in the Kingdom of God become more and more like the Lord, as we are becoming a part of His family. Are you seeing reality, God created all things by His Words? Without Him was not anything made that was made, from the highest angel to the meanest of creation. He is God for He built all things. He approved of the excellency of the Christian religion, for He was the author and founder of the way, truth and life that is found as we trust and obey. Look around and you see many who are believers and are following the Lord in such a way the Lord is lifted up and the Church is not looking for glory it is there. Seeing the life of Billy Graham was such a blessing as he stayed connected to the Gospel telling all, Jesus saves, and all we had to do is repent of our sins and God will forgive us of our sins and empower us to turn from our evil ways. The Church around the world cares for the sins that plague our world and has an answer to solve our problems and that is Jesus, who died on a cross and was buried in a grave, but after three day He arose and lives and empowers us with His Holy Spirit, so He can live in us, giving us the ability to stay connected to the life giver Jesus Christ our Lord. It is God giving us His word to redeem us and give us salvation, a way out of sins dark hold upon our world.

Reaching and Revitalizing Rural America

 We are all living in a world of information that is instant which should give us goodwill and peace, yet we are seeing the opposite. We are in an age of foolishness, like never before and we do not know how foolish the next day is going to be. We are seeing evils dark side and no one is able to stop what is evil, for Satan is out to kill everyone. The rural America is affected as much, or maybe more for we are smaller than the populated area of our world, and we as a whole feel it effects on our sanctity.

We have a story of struggling in the decaying of morality in our cultures and traditions, in the home and our Churches, for people want to gather where there are numbers. The Rural areas do not have the luxury of large arenas and great musical talent that are entertaining in themselves. We are in an old environment where our Church are older and smaller and our youth have the ability to drive great distances to get what they want. For we have been geared to think bigger is better, and do not put the emphasis on relationship that should be an area of primary importance. The relationship with parents and the Church is what gave the Rural areas a feeling of belonging to God and to one another. That feeling is become now more of an interest in who has the most friends on the internet. 

Our Area is dependent upon Farming and Farming has become a large enterprise, involving several families to maintain and run the business which leaves those who are on governmental assistance demanding even more with less work being done by locals and the farmer having to go outside to get their employees. This attracts a lot of evil doing and when it is on a reservation your dealing with superstition and traditions that are based on the animal world, or worship of the Zodiac stars in the heaven and not fulling trusting in God, for God created everything good and evil and it is up to us to know the difference.  We lack pride of ownership of what we owe, for we’re surrounded by hate for what happen to us in the past. This is seen in how many alcoholics we have and how freely drugs are used. Then the way we treat our boys and girls without intact families, but broken families where the children may not know who Dad is, or maybe who mom is, so they live with grandma or aunties and uncles. This cause one to think about who am I?  Who really cares, and they feel they have a reason to hang out with their friends who are bent on trouble, with taking advantage of one another sexually, leading to more confusion of evil actions and behavior. The word dysfunctional becomes compounded for they have no sense of moral responsibility which needs to be taught in the home.

Our School on the reservation are plagued with absenteeism for why go to school for they have no encouragement in the home. You see when in the homes in our rural areas, we are faced with so many problems where no one is wanting to solve them, we have crime at an all-time high, which we are dealing with in our Valley as we have two laws and when you step into the Reservation your Governed by Indian treaty laws and the County Sheriff’s Department has to work with Indian jurisdiction. This then allows some to have favor and are not prosecuted according to the law, but turn back into the community to repeat the criminal activity. We have had several community meetings this year already with people in authority and it seems people are good at blaming someone else. Those in Patty Murray’s; our Senator in WDC office said, “we did not realize you had such a problem on the Reservation”. Our Tribal leader are wanting justice, but seem to be good at placing blame on our political officers, prosecutors and Judges.

Romans 4

Romans 4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Romans 4 here is talking about the doctrine of Justification by faith that is different than what is taught by Moses and the law he was given to obey. Abraham was the seed from which we all came from and just as Abraham had to have faith in what God said, so we in the New Testament have to obey the same rule the just shall live by faith. It is not by works that we have done or do, but by what Christ did for us on the cross. The whole chapter is given over to the fact rather Jew or Gentile we are all justified by our faith in God’s work done on the cross. He proves it, he observed it, he describes and he applies it to all of us.
Abraham Justified by Faith
What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? What was Abraham a Hebrew who found as he was seeking some godly pearl and a great price the benefit of Salvation by faith he was pardoned or justified. Not what he did in himself but what God did in and through him.  For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. When we think it is what we have done that gives us glory we are being deceived for we are born sinners in need of a savior. As people we matter but to know the Lord we are glorified for the simple reason we are His children and not our own. We are His and God give us the ability to glory in who God is in us.  For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” What does the Scriptures say is the number one answer to all our questions? Abraham believed had faith and accepted Gods graciousness for he did not know where the Lord was taking him or what was going to happen to him. It is unbelief that we see yet today that prevents people from receiving the promises of God fulfilled in our world. We are seeing some tremendous things done, all because of man’s ability to develop and engineer new things like the internet that is controlled by the ability the mind has to comprehend. We can’t see, but by faith we believe what it is able to do? Totally amazing and it is changing our world as a tool created by man. Yet it is not God and you can get alone without it. Yet we can not get along without Gods love mercy and grace which is ours when we believe in God and become justified as we please the Lord, not please ourselves, but honoring Gods word and obeying Him. Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. Yes we are all working to stay alive but that does not save our souls and spirits for they need faith in God to act upon God grace. The Souls five senses of Imagination, conscience, memory, reason and affection needs to be guided by the Spirit of God’s love. Our Spirits five senses of worship, reverence, hope, faith and prayer needs to be upon the guidance of the Holy Spirit who draws us closer to Him.
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: Abraham and David could not expect to earn wages for their hire, we are guilty of sin and the wages of sin is death. But the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. God gives us free grace for graces sake not ours. It is in Christ we stand actively, obedient in faith so we are pardoned and saved from sins that hang on like barnacles. David repent of his sin to Bathsheba and killing of her husband and wept bitterly. Peter weep when he denied the Lord at the crucifixion.  God intervened forgave as the cried out for mercy, grace and accepted God’s gift of pardon and justification. It is not what we have done but what Christ did that we are saved and justified as never sinning. The nature of forgiveness is the remission of debit we can’t pay for our crime, God cast this sin behind His back and hides His face from it. Our blessedness is not our innocence or our not having sinned, it is in Christ alone not imputing sin. Romans 4:8 Salvation is totally an act of God’s grace, love and mercy, not based on our works but His work at Calvary. We see pardon people are blessed people for they have a clear state out of debt to others and under then sentence of God redeeming grace. That is the reason our consciences to be alive and working to make us sensitive to wrong we commit so we can ask the Lord for help and He is always wanting us to grow in His love, mercy and grace, not overlooking sin but admitting sins.
