SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [Monday]

Know also this, that in the last days shall come dangerous times. 2 Timothy 3:1 (Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible: DRCB)

It is good to note that Paul introduced the prophecy about the last days with the expression, ‘know…this.’ Those words guarantee that what follows is certain to occur. There is no doubt that ungodly society will continue to advance from bad to worse until Almighty God (YHWH) steps in to end it. Historians have documented that here or there some society or nation experienced a steep moral decline and then collapsed. Never before in history, though, has the overall morality of the entire world deteriorated to the extent that is has now. Many people may ignore the implications, but this unique development since 1914 should clearly demonstrate to us that we can trust that Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) Kingdom will soon take decisive action.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [Tuesday]

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40 [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Jesus (Yeshua) has been speaking to Peter, Andrew, James, and John, his close companions. They have just heard him relate illustrations about the faithful and discreet slave, the ten virgins, and the talents. Jesus concludes his discussion with one more parable. He describes a time when “the Son of man” will judge “all the nations.” How this illustration must have fascinated his disciples! In it, Jesus focuses on two groups, one classed as sheep and the other as goats. And he highlights an important third group that he identifies as “brothers” of “the King.” at Matthew 25:31-46, “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Almighty God’s [YHWH’s] people have long been intrigued by this illustration and rightly so, for in it Jesus (Yeshua) speaks about the fate of people. He reveals why some will receive everlasting life while others will be cut off in death forever. Our lives depend on our understanding the truths Jesus conveyed and acting on them. With so much at stake, we should ask: How has Jehovah progressively clarified our understanding of this illustration? Why can we say that the illustration emphasizes the importance of the preaching work? Who is it that receives the commission to preach? And why is now the time to be loyal to “the King” and to those he calls “my brothers”?

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [Wednesday]

But in the latter days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of Jehovah’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow unto it. 2 And many nations shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Jehovah from Jerusalem; Micah 4:1 – 2, [American Standard Version; ASV]

Micah died long ago and this prophecy is still in the future with respect fulfillment. Even so, lhe was determined to remain loyal to Almighty God (YHWH) even to death, no matter what others around him did. In this regard, Micah wrote, “For all the peoples walk every one in the name of his god; and we will walk in the name of Jehovah our God for ever and ever.” (Micah 4:5). Micah could wait patiently during distressing times because he had absolute confidence that Almighty God (YHWH) would fulfill all of His promises. The faithful prophet trusted in Almighty God (YHWH).

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [THURSDAY]

And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. Isaiah 13:19 [American Standard Version; ASV]

Babylon was a great and powerful city in its time, but Almighty God (YHWH) foretold its destruction and non-inhabitance after defeat by Cyrus over 200 years before he was even born. Isaiah recorded His prophecy of judgment against Babylon. (Isaiah 13:29 to 23, and Isaiah 14:22 to 24). This prophecy was very clear and details were given to show just how this would occur; to wit, Invading armies of Cyrus would dry up Babylon’s river and march into the city without a battle. But this is not all. Isaiah’s prophecy even named the king who would conquer Babylon. (Isaiah 44:27 to Isaiah 45:2).

This prophecy of doom against Babylon was realized some 200 years later – on the night of October 5/6, 539 B.C.E. an army encamped near Babylon and its commander was a Persian king named Cyrus. The stage was set for the fulfillment of this amazing prophecy, and the invasion took place exactly as prophesized.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Friday]

You know that foreign rulers like to order their people around. And their greal leaders have full power over everyone they ruld. But don’t act like them. If you want to be great, you must be the servant of all the others. Matthew 20:25-26 [Contemporary English Version: CEV]

Jesus’ (Yeshua) view of a spiritual shepherds’ role was different from that once manifested by James And John. The two apostles once sought to secure a prominent position in the Kingdom. However He corrected their attitude a Matthew 20:25-26 as shown above. Thus, the Apostles needed to resist a tendency toward wanting to ‘lord it over’ their companions, or to ‘order people around.’

And, the Apostle Paul said at Acts 20:18-19, “And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye yourselves know, from the first day that I set foot in Asia, after what manner I was with you all the time, serving the Lord with all lowliness of mind, and with tears, and with trials which befell me by the plots of the Jews;” [American Standard Version; ASV] In fact, the Apostle Paul was telling the Corinthians that he would not be master over their faith. Instead, he was a humble fellow worker for their joy. (2 Corinthians 1:24) Thus, the Apostle Paul set a fine example of humility and hard work for those taking the lead among the genuine followers of Christ today.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Saturday]

and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name; 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Phillipians 2:8 – 11 [American Standard Version; ASV]

Because of Jesus’ (Yeshua’s) wholehearted devotion, Almighty God (YHWH) blessed him during his ministry on earth and rewarded him after his sacrificial death. The apostle Paul wrote: “being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross [[torture stake]].” For this very reason, Almighty God (YHWH) exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every other name, so that in the name of Jesus (Yeshua0 every knee should bend – of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground – and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus (Yeshua) Christ is Lord to the glory of Almighty God (YHWH), the Father. Almighty God (YHWH) blessed Jesus (Yeshua) ‘forever’ by resurrecting him to immortal life. (Romans 6:9).

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Sunday]

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1 [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Scientists estimate that the earth is about 4 billion years old and that the universe was born some 13 to 14 billion years ago. The Bible sets no date for the creation of the universe. In no place does it affirm that the earth is only a few thousand years old. But some in error try to liken creative days to literal days, a gross error.

However, the Bible contains accurate information written down many centuries ago. How did those writers come up with such accurate information when even the most learned people of their time were ignorant of such things? The Bible’s Author answers: “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9. [AV]

For example the Bible reveals the earth is hung on nothing at Job 26:7, “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” [AV] . Also, it gives sanitation instructions in keeping with science; to wit, regarding sanitation, the law ordered the Israelites to care for their waste in a private place outside their encampment whose purpose was unknown to the people in the day, it was written at Deuteronomy 23:12 – 13, “Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad: 13 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:” [AV].

In fact Genesis chapter 1 uses the term “day” to set out the stages in the preparation of the earth for life in all its diverse forms, not as an exact period of time.. The culminating event in this simple description was the appearance of humans. The Bible fixes no duration for the six creative “days.” Instead, it opens the door for modern scientists to study them and assign accurate time spans to them. We know that the creative “days” were much longer than 24-hour days.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Monday]

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! Romans 11:33 [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Neuroscientist David Eagleman wrote: “Some readers walk away . . . with the impression that scientists think they have the big picture solved.” Then he added: “But good science is always open-minded, and the history of science is one of surprises.”

Down through the ages, talented scientists have indeed made surprising breakthroughs in their search for answers to puzzling questions about nature. Some, however, have also made serious errors in the process. Isaac Newton was one of the greatest scientists of all time. He showed how the force of gravitation binds the planets, stars, and galaxies into one universe. He invented calculus, a branch of mathematics used in computer design, space travel, and nuclear physics. However, Newton also pursued alchemy, a pseudoscience that used astrology and magical formulas in attempts to turn lead and other metals into gold.

Over 1,500 years before Newton, the Greek astronomer Ptolemy explored the heavens with his eyes alone. He tracked the planets across the night sky and was skilled as a mapmaker. But he believed that the earth was the center of everything. Astrophysicist Carl Sagan wrote of Ptolemy: “His Earth-centered universe held sway for 1,500 years, a reminder that intellectual capacity is no guarantee against being dead wrong.”

Today scientists face similar challenges in their pursuits. Will they ever find a complete explanation of the universe? While it is proper to acknowledge the progress science has made and the benefits it has brought us, it is also essential to bear in mind its limitations. Physicist Paul Davies observed: “The search for a closed logical scheme that provides a complete and self-consistent explanation for everything is doomed to failure.” Those words state an undeniable truth: Humans cannot completely understand the natural world. So when assertions are made about the potential of science to provide an explanation of everything that exists, it is only reasonable to take such assertions with reservations.

The Bible speaks of the wonders of nature in these words: “Look! These are just the fringes of [God’s] ways; only a faint whisper has been heard of him!” (Job 26:14) There remains a vast store of knowledge that is beyond human perception and understanding.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Wednesday]

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:36 – 40 [authorized King James Bible; AV]

These scriptures clearly show the importance of love over all the other attributes of Almighty God (YHWH), and his son’s acknowledgement of this truth. At 1 John 4:8, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” [AV]

Now if we have true love for others in our hearts, we will,

(1) NOT murder, but live in accordance with Exodus 20:13, “Thou shalt not kill.” [AV]

And will conform to what is written at 1 John 3:15, “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” [AV]

(2) We will live our lives in accordance with making and keeping the peace in compliance with Psalm 34:14, “Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.” And, James 3:18, “And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” [AV]

(3) We will shun violence instead of promoting it as the false religion of Islam does in compliance with Psalm 11:5, “The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.”, and Proverbs 3:31 – 32, “Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. 32 For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous.” [AV]

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:31 (Authorized King James Bible; AV)

So Almighty God (YHWH) created a very good earth, and man was put on it to take care of it per Genesis 2:15, And Jehovah God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” [AV] However, mankind today is ruining the earth contrary to Almighty God’s (YHWH) purpose for it.

He is polluting it, and with respect to polluters, the Bible says at Isaiah 24:5 – 6, “The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.” [AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) will hold wanton destroyers of the environment accountable. He will, “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.” Revelation 11:18 [AV]. They will NOT get away with their actions.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [FRIDAY]

and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name; 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Phillipians 2:8 – 11 [American Standard Version; ASV]

Because of Jesus’ (Yeshua’s) wholehearted devotion, Almighty God (YHWH) blessed him during his ministry on earth and rewarded him after his sacrificial death. The apostle Paul wrote: “being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross [[torture stake]].” For this very reason, Almighty God (YHWH) exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every other name, so that in the name of Jesus (Yeshua0 every knee should bend – of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground – and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus (Yeshua) Christ is Lord to the glory of Almighty God (YHWH), the Father. Almighty God (YHWH) blessed Jesus (Yeshua) ‘forever’ by resurrecting him to immortal life. (Romans 6:9).

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Saturday]

Jer 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: Jeremiah 3:14 [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Children need to obey their parents as highlighted by Ephesians 6:1 – 3, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.” [AV]

Parents should teach their children properly per Ephesians 6:4, “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”, and Colossians’ 3:21, “Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.” [AV]

A family must be founded on love and marriage mates and their children must love each other as shown at Ephesians 5:33, “Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” [AV]

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Sunday]

Thine arrows are sharp; The peoples fall under thee; They are in the heart of the king’s enemies. Psalm 45:5 [American Standard Version; ASV]

The King is mounted on a white horse, representing warfare that is clean and righteous in Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) eyes. (Rev. 6:2; 19:11) In addition to a sword, he is equipped with a bow. We read: “I saw, and look! a white horse, and the one seated on it had a bow; and a crown was given him, and he went out conquering and to complete his conquest.” (Psalm 45:3 -4) Both the sword and the bow represent the means that Christ will use to execute judgment on his enemies.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Monday]

Serve Jehovah with fear, And rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, For his wrath will soon be kindled. Blessed are all they that take refuge in him. Psalm 2:11 – 12 [American Standard Version; ASV]

As he rides forth, the King has a sword strapped on his side. (Ps. 45:3, (New World Translation Revised; [NWTr]) But the time comes for him to take the sword and wield it with his right hand. The psalmist prophesies: “Your right hand will accomplish awe-inspiring things.” (Ps. 45:4, [NWTr]) When Jesus Christ rides forth to execute Jehovah’s judgments at Armageddon, he will accomplish “awe-inspiring things” against his enemies. Just what means he will use to destroy Satan’s system, we do not know. But that action will strike terror in the heart of the inhabitants of the earth who have not heeded the divine warning to submit to the King’s rule. In his prophecy regarding the time of the end, Jesus said that people would become “faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” He added: “And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”—Luke 21:26, 27 [NWTr]

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Tuesday]

The Rock, his work is perfect; For all his ways are justice: A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, Just and right is he. Deuteronomy 32:4 [American Standard Version; ASV]

Almighty God (YHWH) is not driven by blind emotion as humans often are. Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) condemns unbridled rage, cruelty, and violence as testified to at Genesis 49:6 - 7, “O my soul, come not thou into their council; Unto their assembly, my glory, be not thou united; For in their anger they slew a man, And in their self–will they hocked an ox. 7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; And their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, And scatter them in Israel.” [AV], and Psalm 11:5, “Jehovah trieth the righteous; But the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.” [AV] . So Almighty God (YHWH) never acts without reason. He uses his destructive power sparingly and as a last resort. It is as he stated through his prophet Ezekiel, “‘Do I take any pleasure at all in the death of a wicked person?’ declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘Do I not prefer that he turn away from his ways and keep living?’” Ezekiel 18:23 [New World Translation Revised: NWTr].

Why, then, does Almighty God (YHWH) use destructive power? Before answering, we might call to mind the righteous man Job. Satan challenged whether Job – really, any human – would keep his integrity under trial. Almighty God (YHWH) answered that challenge by allowing Satan to test Job’s integrity. As a result, Job suffered illness, loss of wealth, and loss of his children. (Job 1:1 – 28). Unaware of the issues involved, Job mistakenly concluded that his suffering was unjust punishment from Almighty God (YHWH). He asked God why He had made him a ‘target,’ ‘an enemy.’ (Job 7:20, 13:24).

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Wednesday]

And in thy majesty ride on prosperously, Because of truth and meekness and righteousness: And thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Psalm 45:4 [American Standard Version; ASV]

The Warrior-King does not wage a war of conquest in order to occupy territories and subjugate peoples as do human armies. He wages a righteous war with noble objectives. He rides “in the cause of truth and humility and righteousness.” The greatest truth that must be defended is that of Jehovah’s universal sovereignty. Satan challenged the legitimacy of Jehovah’s ruler ship when he rebelled against Him. Since then, that fundamental truth has been disputed by both demons and humans. Now the time has come for Jehovah’s anointed King to ride forth to establish the truth of Jehovah’s sovereignty once and for all. And in thy majesty ride on prosperously, Because of truth and meekness and righteousness: And thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Psalm 45:4 [American Standard Version; ASV]

In what way does the King ride ‘in the cause of humility’? The King also rides ‘in the cause of humility.’ As Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) only-begotten Son, he himself has provided a sterling example of humility and loyal subjection to his Father’s sovereignty. (Isa. 50:4, 5; John 5:19) All loyal subjects of the King must follow his example and humbly submit to Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) sovereignty in all things. Only those who do so will be allowed to live in God’s promised new world.—(Zech. 14:16, 17)

How does Christ sally forth ‘in the cause of righteousness’? Christ also sallies forth ‘in the cause of righteousness.’ The righteousness that the King defends is “Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) righteousness”—Jehovah’s standards of what is right and what is wrong. (Rom. 3:21;Deut. 32:4) About the King Jesus Christ, Isaiah prophesied: “A king will reign for righteousness.” (Isa. 32:1) Jesus’ reign will usher in the promised “new heavens” and “new earth,” wherein “righteousness is to dwell.” (2 Pet. 3:13) Every inhabitant of that new world will be required to conform to Jehovah’s standards.—(Isa. 11:1-5)

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Thursday]

Thou art fairer than the children of men; Grace is poured into thy lips: Therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. Psalm 45:2 [American Standard Version; ASV]

While the Bible says very little about Jesus”(Yeshua’s) physical appearance. Undoubtedly, as a perfect man, he was good looking. However, his outstanding qualities came from his faithfulness to Almighty God (YHWH), and his unbending integrity. In addition, Jesus (Yeshua) used ‘gracious speech’ when he preached the message of the Kingdom. (Luke 4:22, John 7:46) Do we personally endeavor to follow His example in our speaking to others with respect biblical things? Do we try to use words that will reach people’s heart? (Colossians 4:6).

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Friday]

So when he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and sat down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? John 13:12 [American Standard Version; ASV]

This Jesus (Yeshua) Christ did to show his disciples the need to show humility when they were being preoccupied with the question of who among them would become the greatest in the Kingdom. (John 13:13-15) He instead of losing patience with them, continued to teach his disciples and to give them loving counsel about manifesting humility. (Luke 9:46-48, 22, 24-27) By washing their feet, Jesus (Yeshua) Christ provided an object lesson in humility, a quality that all genuine followers of His need to develop and display. As per 1 Peter 2:21, “For hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye should follow his steps:”

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Saturday]

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: Deuteronomy 6:4 [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Interestingly, Colossians 1:14 – 15 says, “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:” [AV], and this raises an interesting point. To wit, in what way is Jesus (Yeshua) the first born of all creation? Before Colossians 1:15, the expression “firstborn” occurs approximately 30 times in the Bible, and in each occurrence that it is applied to a living creature the same meaning applies. For example, the firstborn of Pharaohs family is his firstborn child. Therefore, when Colossians 1:17 – 19, “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;” [AV]

Revelation 1:1 and 3:14 clarify how he is the firstborn of creation as follows, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:” and “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;” [AV]. And Mark 13:32 clearly clarifies how he is firstborn when it says, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” [AV] clearly showing that Jesus (Yeshua) and his Father, Almighty God (YHWH) are two separate beings. And Matthew 20:20 – 23 further clarifies this reality when it states, “Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. 21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. 22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.” [AV] which clearly shows Jesus (Yeshua) and his Father, Almighty God (YHWH), are two separate entities.

She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. 22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.” [AV] which clearly shows Jesus (Yeshua) and his Father, Almighty God (YHWH), are two separate entities.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Sunday]

who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; Colossians 1:15 [American Standard Version; ASV]

In his Word (Jesus), Almighty God (YHWH) provides the most intimate revelation of himself through his beloved Son, Jesus (Yeshua) Christ. No one could reflect His thinking and feelings more closely or explain Him more vividly that His Son, Jesus (Yeshua) Christ did. After all that first born Son existed along side his Father before the other spirit creatures were created and he used him as His master worker in creating all else as shown by Proverbs 8:22-31, “Jehovah possessed me in the beginning of his way, Before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, Before the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth, When there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills was I brought forth; While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, Nor the beginning of the dust of the world. When he established the heavens, I was there: When he set a circle upon the face of the deep, When he made firm the skies above, When the fountains of the deep became strong, When he gave to the sea its bound, That the waters should not transgress his commandment, When he marked out the foundations of the earth; then I was by him, as a master workman; And I was daily his delight, Rejoicing always before him, Rejoicing in his habitable earth; And my delight was with the sons of men.” [ASV]. This is also affirmed at Colossians 1:16, “for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him;” [ASV]

Jesus (Yeshua) was intimately acquainted with his Father, Almighty God (YHWH). That is why he could say: “All things have been delivered unto me of my Father: and no one knoweth who the Son is, save the Father; and who the Father is, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him.” (Luke 10:22) [ASV] .

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Monday]

But you remain forever, O Jehovah, And your fame will endure for all generations. Psalms 102:12 [New World Translation Revised: NWTr]

Psalm 102 also shows how you might gain a more positive viewpoint. The psalmist did so by shifting attention to his relationship with Jehovah. (Ps. 102:12, 27) He found comfort in knowing that Jehovah would always be there to sustain His people through trials. So if negative feelings temporarily keep you from doing as much as you want to in God’s service, pray about it. Ask Almighty God (YHWH) to hear your prayer not only so that you may experience some relief from your distress but also “So that the name of Jehovah will be declared in Zion And his praise in Jerusalem,.”—Ps. 102:21. For more information, go to Exodus 6:3, Psalms 83:18.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Tuesday]

He went a day’s journey into the wilderness and came and sat down under a broom tree, and he asked that he might die. He said: “It is enough! Now, O Jehovah, take my life away, for I am no better than my forefathers.” 1 Kings 19:4 [New World Translation Revised: NWTr]

For those who have not experienced such despair might be tempted to dismiss Elijah’s prayer as mere “wild talk.” (Job 6:3) However, his feelings were real. Note, though, that rather than chastise Elijah for wanting to die, Almighty God (YHWH) helped him.

How had Elijah come to feel as he did? Shortly before this, he had presided over a decisive test in Israel that proved that Jehovah is the true God, and this led to the execution of 450 prophets of Baal. (1 Ki. 18:37-40) Elijah likely hoped that God’s people would now return to pure worship, but that did not happen. Wicked Queen Jezebel sent a message to Elijah that she was arranging for him to be killed. Fearing for his life, Elijah fled south across neighboring Judah into the wilderness, a barren and wild place.—1 Ki. 19:2-4.

Alone with his thoughts, Elijah reflected on the seeming futility of his work as a prophet. He told Jehovah: “…for I am no better than my forefathers.” (1 Kings 19:4) [NWTr] His point was that he felt as useless as the dust and bones of his dead ancestors. He had, in effect, tested himself by his own standards and had decided that he was a failure, of no value to Jehovah or anyone else.

But the Almighty God (YHWH) saw Elijah differently. Elijah remained valuable in God’s eyes, and Jehovah took steps to assure him of that reality. God sent an angel to strengthen Elijah. Jehovah also provided food and drink that would sustain Elijah during his 40-day trip south to Mount Horeb. Moreover, God kindly corrected Elijah’s mistaken idea that no other Israelites had remained faithful to Jehovah. Significantly, God gave Elijah new assignments, which he accepted. Elijah benefited from Jehovah’s help, and he returned to his work as a prophet with renewed energy.—1 Ki. 19:5-8, 15-19.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Wednesday]

Turn away from what is bad, and do what is good; Seek to find peace, and pursue it. Psalms 34:14.

All should seek after peace and pursue it, and not strive with others if they can avoid it. In fact, doing so may win others over with respect to being peaceful with you. Isaac put this into practice in dealing with herdsmen of Gerar, “And the servants of Isaac went on digging in the torrent valley and so they found there a well of fresh water. 20 And the shepherds of Ge?rar fell to quarreling with the shepherds of Isaac, saying: “The water is ours!” Hence he called the name of the well Esek, because they had contended with him. 21 And they went digging another well, and they fell to quarreling over it also. Hence he called its name Sitnah.” (Genesis 26:19 to 21), but Isaac did not fight with these bullies. He moved further away and dug another well that the bullies did not quarrel with him over with and this event was recorded at Genesis 26:22, “Later he moved away from there and dug another well, but they did not quarrel over it. Hence he called its name Re•hoboth and said: “It is because now Jehovah has given us ample room and has made us fruitful in the earth.”

His handling the matter is a peaceful way later proved good for Isaac as he later concluded a covenant with the bullies after Almighty God (YHWH) appeared to him and blessed him as recorded at Genesis 26:24 to 29, “And Jehovah proceeded to appear to him during that night and to say: “I am the God of Abraham your father. Do not be afraid, because I am with you, and I will bless you and multiply your seed on account of Abraham my servant.” 25 Accordingly he built an altar there and called on the name of Jehovah and pitched his tent there, and the servants of Isaac went excavating a well there. 26 Later on A•bim?e•lech came to him from Gerar with A•huzzath his confidential friend and Phi?col the chief of his army. 27 At this Isaac said to them: “Why have YOU come to me, seeing that YOU yourselves hated me and so sent me away from YOUR neighborhood?” 28 To this they said: “We have unmistakably seen that Jehovah has proved to be with you. Hence we said, ‘Let, please, an oath of obligation occur between us, between us and you, and let us conclude a covenant with you, 29 that you will do nothing bad toward us just as we have not touched you and just as we have done only good toward you in that we sent you away in peace. You now are the blessed of Jehovah”’. So Isaac’s striving for peace proved fruitful for him, and in accordance with striving for peace won Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) approval.
