Acts 26 Message for today

We are now seeing Paul before Festus, Agrippa, and Bernice and the great men of Caesarea defending himself.
Acts 26 New King James Version (NKJV)
Paul’s Early Life
26 Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You are permitted to speak for yourself.” Here Paul is not able to speak about what is really happening, as the Jews did not let this happen earlier. So, Paul stretched out his hand and answered for himself: Paul is very emotional and uses his hands to show how interested he is in telling his story. Paul knew Agrippa was not new at this so wants to make sure he showed respect for what he was about to do “I think myself happy, King Agrippa, because today I shall answer for myself before you concerning all the things of which I am accused by the Jews, especially because you are expert in all customs and questions which have to do with the Jews. Therefore I beg you to hear me patiently. Paul was aware of the power the Government had and what Agrippa could do at any time, so he tried to be as personal as possible as he was defending his own life that was being questioned. He did not show disrespect but respect so knew the power of controlling his anger.
“My manner of life from my youth, which was spent from the beginning among my own nation at Jerusalem, all the Jews know. He let them know he was a very studious young man wanting to help his fellow man. They knew me from the first, if they were willing to testify, that according to the strictest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee. He was very much a Pharisee better than a Sadducee. He was very proud of being taught by the best of teachers.  And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers. Not only am I being tried by you, but by God, so was putting his life on the line as He was not his own but belonged to the Lord. It seems like today the courts do not want. To know the truth for the true sets one free to obey what is right. Are we not seeing every area of life being contested and wonder where is or what is the truth. To this promise our twelve tribes, I’m earnestly serving God night and day, hope to attain. For this hope’s sake, King Agrippa, I am accused by the Jews. Paul had such a conversion that he never forgot what happen to him as one that was opposed to God and now in favor of God’s presence. So he spoke with the assurance all was going to go will. Why should it be thought incredible by you that God raises the dead? Here he is letting Agrippa know he needed to know that God allowed Jesus to rise from the dead, yet he was bent on not accepting Gods will and wanted to represent the government of Rome. “Indeed, I myself thought I must do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. 10 This I also did in Jerusalem, and many of the saints I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I cast my vote against them. 11 And I punished them often in every synagogue and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly enraged against them, I persecuted them even to foreign cities. He was being as truthful as he could for now his life was on the line, and needed to show the new life and how God got his attention. Lord help us to never forget what happen to us before we were saved so we appreciate Your love and mercy.
Paul Recounts His Conversion
12 “While thus occupied, as I journeyed to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, 13 at midday, O king, along the road I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining around me and those who journeyed with me. 14 And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ 15 So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 16 But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. 17 I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now[a] send you, 18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’

WHO IS YOUR FRIEND?
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Thursday, 16 November 2017

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.

What do you have need of?
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Thursday, 09 November 2017

Thank the Lord, God in the beginning created all and knows the needs we all have been created with, as He wants to meet our needs according to what we think of Jesus, for He created us all with a desire to achieve our potential. That is the reason we have to surrender our ways to His way, truth and life in order to have a good self-image of who we are.
God created us from the dirt that surrounds us all. This dirt gives life to where we grow the food from which we eat and from which we build our houses. Dirt is life and that life is what we are created from. Genesis 1:26 to 2:7 tells the Story of how we were created for good will and peace. Women was made from the rib of a man, showing how important marriage was to multiply man upon the earth. We need to have partnership between one man and one women that is permanent to produce spiritual unity among themselves, so they can have children in a positive spiritual, sexual way. This is the reason we all have needs for relationship starting in the home, between mom and dad, so children that can be taught values based on morality, not sexuality. This need for relationship is very holy and pure and needs to be honored by our responsibility to one another in love of God, then we can have relationships that honor one another.
