prairwarur: ~~~ Revelation 5 ~~~

9 And they *sang a new song, saying,

“Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

10 “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”

~~ Angels Exalt the Lamb ~~

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands,

12 saying with a loud voice,

“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”

13 And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying,

“To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.”

14 And the four living creatures kept saying, “Amen.” And the elders fell down and worshiped.

prairwarur: Love Values People
by Kenneth Copeland

“Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”
Romans 13:10, New King James Version

Who is your neighbor? Your neighbor is the person who is near to you at the moment. When you’re standing in line at the ballgame, your neighbor is the man standing in front of you whom you elbowed out of the way to get a better seat. When you’re waiting for a parking place at the grocery store, your neighbor is the person in the car who swerved around you and took the place you’d been waiting for.

The Bible says love does no harm to those people. Love is considerate of them. Love is sensitive to them.

That sounds simple enough. But the fact is, before we can be considerate of someone and sensitive to them, we have to be aware that they exist. We have to be spiritually alert enough to notice them. To do that, we have to get our minds renewed because our culture has trained us to be so self-centered, we don’t even see each other.

It’s amazing. People will notice things before they’ll notice other people. They’ll admire an expensive car and never even see the person driving it. They’ll appreciate buildings, clothes and jewelry, and ignore the people in them as if they’re totally insignificant. But when we fall into that, we’re being deceived. People are far more important than things. Never use people to get things. Use things to BLESS and show God’s love to people.

The only way we can be sure not to do any harm to our neighbor is to value people enough to notice them. We must esteem others as much as we do ourselves. We must see them as being more important than things.

We should never treat someone poorly over a seat at the ballgame or a parking place. But we’ll do it inadvertently if we don’t renew our minds and exercise our awareness of them.

That’s why walking in love requires us to cultivate our consciousness of the impact our words and actions have on the people around us. If we hurt someone’s feelings because we spoke harshly to them (or didn’t speak to them at all), we can’t excuse ourselves by saying, “Hey, I didn’t even realize I offended them,” or “I was thinking about something else and didn’t notice they were standing there.”

That won’t fly because if we’re walking in love, we won’t be that self-absorbed. We’ll see the pain flash across that person’s face when we’re abrupt with them. We’ll consider them more important than our own thoughts and acknowledge them when we walk by.

Love gives us a heightened awareness of others that keeps us from carelessly neglecting them. It ensures we do our neighbor no harm.

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
As you go through the day, pay attention to the people themselves, before you address any issue with them. Take a few minutes to allow the Love in you to be aware of them. It could make all the difference in their day…and yours!

prairwarur: Love: A Debt You Owe
by Kenneth Copeland

“Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
Romans 13:8, New King James Version

Because God loves us, we owe love to every person we meet. We owe them kindness and gentleness. We owe it to them to treat them with dignity and respect, as valuable to God and to His plan in the earth.

Sadly enough, we don’t always do that. At times, people act like the Christians mentioned in James 2, and give better treatment to people who wear fine clothes and expensive jewelry, than they give to those who don’t have much wealth or social status. They violate the law of love and fail to give others what they are owed. As a result, they are often robbed of THE BLESSING and favor of God.

One might pray diligently for God to help in a situation, standing on The WORD and confessing we walk in the favor of God. But selfish actions and unloving ways will thwart the answer to our own prayers. We’ll reverse that favor before we receive it.

I have a friend who told me about a time he and his wife were stranded in an airport with a multitude of other people. While they were waiting in line to be booked for another flight, they prayed and agreed for God’s help and favor. From the looks of the man behind the ticket counter, they knew they’d need it. His eyes were bloodshot. His hair was sticking out in every direction. He was irritable and tired.

When the lady standing in front of them was rude to him, he just shrugged his shoulders and said all the flights were booked. He didn’t do anything to help.

When my friend and his wife got to the counter however, they were kind. They didn’t put any pressure on the man. On the contrary, they tried to minister peace to him, treating him with consideration and respect. “We realize you’re very busy,” they said. “We can see this is a madhouse and you have a lot of problems on your hands…but this is our situation. Can you do anything for us?”

Amazingly enough, the ticket agent stepped around the counter and said, “Follow me.” He took my friends to another area, booked them first-class seats and shook their hands. He even acknowledged that he could have helped the lady ahead of them. But because of how she acted, he didn’t do it.

That’s a good example of what can happen when you pay the debt of love you owe. It can open the way for God to get you where you’re going. When others find themselves stranded by strife, your faith working by love will not only keep you flying…it will secure you a first-class seat!

prairwarur: Love and Pride Cannot Coexist
by Gloria Copeland

“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
James 4:6, New King James Version

The devil is so determined to undermine your love walk that if he can’t trip you up one way, he’ll sneak around the back door and trip you up another way. You always have to be watching for him. You can never drop your guard!

If he can’t draw you out of love with envy or strife, for instance, he’ll get you to think about how well you’ve been doing. Since Satan is a liar, he can go to either extreme—whatever he thinks will work on you. He’ll remind you of all the offenses you’ve overlooked lately. Before you know it, you’ll be silently extolling your own virtues. I’ve done so wonderfully this week. I’ve held my temper. I’ve refused to be touchy. I’m so proud of myself for walking in love!

Do you know what will happen next?

You’ll fall flat on your face. You’ll do or say something so unloving it will shock you. Why? Because what the Bible says is true. “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18, New International Version).

Pride is defined as “an over-high opinion of one’s self; exaggerated self-esteem or conceit, haughtiness or arrogance; self-esteem arising from one’s accomplishments or possessions; an exaggerated idea of one’s own dignity or importance.” That’s just the dictionary definition and it’s bad enough. But the Bible goes even further in its description of pride by identifying it as one of the seven things that God hates. Proverbs 6:16-17 calls it an abomination to Him.

Don’t let yourself fall into it. When you’re tempted to think about how wonderful you are and how much progress you’re making in your walk of love, think instead about the One who gave you the strength to do it. Stop considering yourself and consider Jesus, the One who loved you so much He shed His blood and paid the price for your sin. Remember how selfish you were before He redeemed you, and how selfish you would still be except for His grace.

Pride will quickly give way to humility. Haughtiness will melt into gratitude. And you’ll take a step upward instead of taking a fall, as you give all the glory to Him.

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
Take a moment and write down all the blessings God has poured out into your life…family, home, work, church. Remember how far God has brought you, and give Him thanks for each blessing, considering Jesus who made it all possible! Thank Him for His gift of Love!

prairwarur:
Two Reasons to Forgive
by Gloria Copeland
“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.”
Matthew 5:44-45, New Living Translation

One of the most common obstacles the devil uses to block the pathway of love is the hurt that comes when other people mistreat us. He’ll tempt us to keep an account of those suffered wrongs. He’ll pressure us to become bitter, resentful and unforgiving. But when he does, we must tell him no. We must choose to drop our offenses, forgive everyone who has harmed us and let bitterness go.

If you’ve suffered serious abuse, you may think that’s impossible to do. But it’s not. The power to forgive is an awesome power. God has it and He has given it to you! His power within you will enable you to do it.

When you do, no matter how terrible the pain of those experiences may have been, you’ll find the love of God is more powerful. And as you begin to walk in love and forgiveness, giving up the resentment you’ve harbored against those who have hurt you, the love of God will overcome the damage that abuse caused in your life.

You may say, “The people who mistreated me did something very wrong. I’ve been miserable for years because of them. Why should I just drop my resentment and let them go free?”

You should do it, first of all, because Jesus did that for you. Even before you repented and asked Him to be your Savior, Jesus went to the cross and shed His own blood, so you wouldn’t have to pay the penalty for your own sin. Even though you were guilty, He dropped the charges against you so you could go free. That alone is reason enough for you to forgive others.

But there’s another reason. You should forgive those who have done you wrong because if you don’t, you’re the one who is going to suffer for it—not the people who hurt you. Unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die. It really doesn’t affect the other person at all.

On the other hand, if you forgive and let the love of God flow into that area of your life, it will restore you—spirit, soul and body.

What’s more, as you continue to yield to love, you’ll continually live in victory. So when the devil comes back and tries to bring hurt to you again, that hurt will not be able to gain a place in you. The love of God will completely protect you and keep you free, free, free!

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
Identify a person or people you have not forgiven. Make a conscious choice before God to forgive them, and then ask God to help you see them and love them like He does. Pray right now, thanking God for His love for you and for them. Ask God to open your heart to be a conduit of His love toward them. Invest something of yourself into them, just as He did when He forgave you and invested Jesus into your life. Experience the freedom love-powered forgiveness provides!

prairwarur: Love Is Not Jealous
by Gloria Copeland

“Love is not jealous or boastful or proud.”
1 Corinthians 13:4, New Living Translation

If you want to find out more about what love really is, one way to do it is by finding out what love is not. And one thing the Scriptures clearly say is that love isn’t envious of others (1 Corinthians 13:4).

If you think envy isn’t a problem for you, I invite you to examine yourself a little closer. The Bible reveals that envy is a common, human condition. It was a problem for Cain in the book of Genesis, it was a problem for King Saul during the days of young David, it was a problem for the Jews in the book of Acts, and unless we guard against it, it will be a problem for us, too!

Envy can be defined simply as “a feeling of discontent and ill will because of another’s advantages, possessions or success.” Such feelings often sneak up on us without us noticing them.

We go to church rejoicing, for example, just thanking God for THE BLESSING. When we drive into the parking lot, however, we see Susie getting out of her new car. Suddenly, we’re not rejoicing quite as much. Why on earth did she get a new car? we think. Her old car was better than the one I have now! What’s more, I’ve been standing in faith for a new car and she hasn’t….

Watch out for thoughts like that. They’re warning signs of envy. If you keep thinking them, you’ll end up unhappy about another’s advantage or success. You’ll find yourself on the road of envy, and every step on that road is a step away from love.

Of course, just because you had an envious thought doesn’t mean you have envy in your heart. Those thoughts are just invitations from the devil and the flesh. They’re signals that let you know you’re being tempted to go in that direction.

So be quick to recognize those envious thoughts and resist them. Give them no place in your heart or your life. Speak words of love instead. Say, “Lord, I praise You for giving Susie that new car. I rejoice that THE BLESSING is working in her life!” Then congratulate Susie. Share in her excitement the way you’d want her to share in yours.

Stay in faith and keep walking in love. Refuse to let envy block the path of THE BLESSING, and get ready to receive every desire of your heart!

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
When was the last time you were envious of someone’s belongings or blessings or talents? As they come to mind, see the person and begin to thank God for THE BLESSING He has poured into their lives. And thank Him for all He has poured into your life, too!

prairwarur: Love Believes the Best
by Gloria Copeland
“So don’t make judgments about anyone ahead of time—before the Lord returns. For he will bring our darkest secrets to light and will reveal our private motives. Then God will give to each one whatever praise is due.”
1 Corinthians 4:5, New Living Translation

One of the most wonderful characteristics of love is that it always believes the best. Love doesn’t criticize or judge others. Even when a great wrong has been done, love says, “I know that person’s action was wrong, but I cannot judge his heart. I choose to believe he did the best he could do at the time, and I will treat him with the mercy I would desire to receive if I were in his shoes.”

Sometimes that seems extremely difficult to do. But here’s something that will help you. When you’re tempted to step out of love and into strife by judging a fellow believer, remember what Romans 14:4 says and ask yourself, “Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants? Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall. And with the Lord’s help, they will stand and receive his approval” (New Living Translation).

The devil will try to push you into making a decision about that person. He’ll pressure you to say whether he’s guilty or not guilty. But don’t give in to that pressure. It’s not your job to judge others. (Isn’t that a relief?) In fact, according to the Bible, it’s to your benefit to withhold judgment because it will save you from the judgment that’s due you.

Jesus said, “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged” (Matthew 7:1-2, New Living Translation).

For example, if you’re in a church where the pastor has done wrong and lived a wrong lifestyle, and you feel you don’t want to follow him, that’s fine. I don’t blame you. Leave that church and go to one where there’s a pastor you can trust and respect. But do it quietly. Don’t sow discord in the church before you go.

You may be tempted to take it on yourself to make that pastor pay for the harm he’s done to you and to others—but resist that temptation. Just love him as you leave, pray for him, and let God deal with him as He sees fit. There are strong words for believers and ministers alike who sow discord among the brethren. God hates it and it is an abomination to Him (Proverbs 6:16, 19).

Our business is to pray for mercy rather than engage in judgment. We leave judgment to The LORD.

Most important of all, make your exit honorably and without bitterness. Let your leaving be marked by peace and love. If you do, you’ll be a BLESSING wherever you go.

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
Stop right now and evaluate who in your life you are judging or have judged. Repent for judging them and for any discord your judgment may have sown. Thank The LORD for always knowing the whole story about every situation and for always judging rightly. Other people are His business!

prairwarur: Love Shuts the Door on Strife
by Gloria Copeland
“If you are wise and understand God's ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don't cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For jealousy and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.”
James 3:13-16, New Living Translation

Scriptures reveal the enemies of love, and one is more insidious and more common than any other. It is the enemy called strife, which means: “vigorous or bitter conflict, discord and antagonism; to quarrel, struggle or clash; competitions; rivalry.”

According to James 3:16, where strife gets in, every other evil work will follow. Strife opens the door to the devil and licenses him to bring confusion and evil into our lives. That’s why he’s always pushing for us to argue with one another and get offended or critical of one another. It gives him access to us!

Satan doesn’t want you to enjoy THE BLESSING that is yours in Christ Jesus. He doesn’t want you to be healed, happy and prosperous because, if you are, other people will notice and want the same quality of life you have. They’ll give their hearts to God because of the goodness of God they see in your life.

To keep that from happening, the devil tries to steal THE BLESSING from you. He tries to trick you into opening the door of your life to him by bringing you an opportunity to have conflict with someone. He knows that the moment you step into strife, he can begin to gain mastery over you. The devil wants control of your life, but he can’t have it when you walk in love.

Don’t let him have control. Make a quality decision today to shut the door on strife. Refuse to argue with people. Refuse to fight back when people criticize or wrong you. Determine instead to respond in love—take no account of the evil done to you. When you do mess up and say harsh words, be quick to repent so the devil can’t get a foothold in your life.

It will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. It will take effort, but by God’s grace you will be able to do it. It’s a small price to pay for the freedom in THE BLESSING…and you’ll be forever glad you did.

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
Keep your eyes and ears open to see where the enemy would have you respond to situations with strife. Turn the tables on him, and take the time to consider for a moment how you can respond in love—and do it!

prairwarur: Love Begins at Home
by Gloria Copeland
“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”
Matthew 18:19-20, New Living Translation

There’s nothing on earth more powerful than the prayers of believers who are walking together in love. Love puts them in harmony with one another. It aligns them with the will of The LORD and brings them into agreement.

The devil hates agreement between believers. Agreement opens the windows of heaven to us and closes the door on every destructive thing he can do. So he continually tries to disrupt that agreement by causing strife and division in the places where believers come together in the most powerful way: the family and the church.

Until now, you may not have realized the spiritual value of your family. But the fact is, if you have family members who are believers, your family can be a powerful force for God. So make it your goal to stay out of strife and walk in harmony with those closest to you. Keep in mind the old saying, “Charity (or love) begins at home.”

Oddly enough, home is often the most difficult place to be loving. Could it be because we don’t have our guard up there? We’re not worried about our reputation or trying to impress anyone. At home, nothing will stop us from being selfish—except our commitment to walk in the love of God.

So, first and foremost, practice the lifestyle of love with your brothers and sisters, your spouse and your children. See to it that your prayers prevail by being in harmony with the members of your own family. The moment you slip up and get into strife, make it right. Repent, ask their forgiveness and jump right back into your love walk.

You may have to repent quite a bit at first because you’ve probably developed habits that will take a while to change. But don’t get discouraged with yourself when you miss it. Just keep trusting The LORD to help you. Keep acting on The WORD. Keep going and growing in love!

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
Take a little personal survey of your love walk in your family. Do some members of your family irritate you more than others? Sit down and talk with that person. Discuss the challenges you have. And let them know you would like to walk in love with them from here on out.

prairwarur: Faith Works by Love
by Gloria Copeland
“For when we place our faith in Christ Jesus, there is no benefit in being circumcised or being uncircumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love.”
Galatians 5:6, New Living Translation

As people of faith, we believe deeply in the importance and the power of faith. Yet, we must realize that faith, by itself, is not enough to make us more than conquerors. We must also have love because the Bible clearly tells us that faith works by love.

Love actually inspires faith. It gives faith a foundation to build on. You might even say love gives us reason to believe. Think about the love of God, for example. His love for us is the foundation of our faith in Him. John 3:16 says He “so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,” so that by believing in Him we wouldn’t perish but have everlasting life.

Imagine it! God sacrificed His very own Son for us, and what prompted Him to do it was love. Actually, it’s His great love that prompts Him to do everything He does for us. It’s His love that provides exceeding great and precious promises that bless us both in this life and in the life to come. It’s His mighty love that causes His mercy to be new toward us every morning.

Often people who don’t grasp God’s love aren’t able to have much faith in His WORD. They struggle and try to believe, but when push comes to shove, their faith falters and fails. Why? Because they don’t have a revelation of love to back it up!

On the other hand, when we truly begin to understand and experience how full of compassion God is toward us, we can easily believe He’ll keep His promises to us. When we know how much God cares, we can trust Him to do what He says. We can have faith that He’ll take care of us in every situation.

When you find yourself struggling to trust The LORD, simply spend some time in fellowship with Him, feeding on His words of love for you. Receive and act on them in your relationship with others. You’ll soon see for yourself that faith truly does work by love.

LOVE ASSIGNMENT:
Think about any area of your life where you are challenged to trust God to bring resolution. Take a bit of time to sit with Him and allow Him to show you how the answer lies in His love—for you and for everyone involved in the situation. You’ll see!

November 2nd, 1917

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.

"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely,

Arthur James Balfour

Thanksgiving for Faith and Perseverance
1 Paul and Silvanus and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: 2 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater; 4 therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure.

5 This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. 6 For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, 7 and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, 8 dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

9 These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.

11 To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen

prairwarur: Children of God Love One Another
1 John 3:1 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. 5 You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.

7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8 the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

chanceoller23: We need to keep Paul Dunlap in your prayers. He has pneumonia and he is very miserable. I just found this out on Facebook earlier and his wife was talking all about this
