All scriptures are taken from the ESV (English Standard Version) bible, and is available free of charge. It will always be free at TBQ. No part of it is to be sold. November 2011 – 2016

Encourage One Another To Love

Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25

We are to look out for each other so that love among us may be displayed in everything we do. God ask us to love one another, so demonstrate it so this world will see God’s character in us. Too much hatred around us, so let us stir each other to love and see the power of God work wonders. Next time you see someone in church or work, stir them up in love and see if you don’t feel better for it. God bless you as you go through your day-to-day task.

Where are You growing

Sowing-SeedsAgain he began to teach beside the sea. And a very large crowd gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat in it on the sea, and the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land. And he was teaching them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them: “Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil. And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.” And he said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Mark 4:1-9

Encouragement: I hope that you will be one of God’s children who’s seed fell on good soil, and that you may grow strong to honour His name.

Bible Quotes With God’s Authority

Jesus was tempted just as we are

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Then the devil took him to the holy city and set Him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written “‘He will command His angels concerning you,’ and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.’” Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to Him. Matthew 4:1-12

Bible Quoting is very powerful when you quote it as intended, because it is the word of God, and works wonders with His authority. When Satan quoted the bible to Jesus, it had no power over Him, because of satan’s doubts (If you are), temptation, and self-glorification. Jesus uses His authority to reject Satan’s quotes, because God cannot be tempted with evil. Jesus had no problem rebuking Satan  and his tricks, because when Jesus quoted the bible to the devil, He did so with God’s authority and for God’s glory, not His own. When you use the word of God, submit first to His authority and be certain that if you doubt God’s ability to perform it, you will be disappointed.

God gave us the authority to live by every word that comes out of His mouth. To do so, you need to be demonstrating faith in His power and believe that there is nothing impossible for Him, because God’s word does not return to Him void. If it is not His will to do what you ask, it will be left undone (Matthew 26:39). It could be that you asked for self gain or praise, instead of His glory. Jesus submitted to God’s will, even when He had authority from God, but His Father’s will was far too important to Him than His “drinking the cup”(Matthew 26:39). He also understood that The Father knew best. We need to learn from Jesus’ example, and do the same.

Next time you quote a bible passage, make sure you believe that God is not going to bow down to anyone’s temptation, or their will, if it doesn’t line up with His will. No matter what authority you have, God has the final authority and that put everyone in submission to Him and His will. We are the ones that need to bow to His authority so He can show us His power every time He needs to show it. That is why we need to be still and know that He is God, and He will be exalted, not commanded. When Satan commanded Jesus to change the stones into bread etc.., he did not and will not submit to the one with God’s authority.  Because of this selfish act, His quotes was of no effect. May God teach us to submit to Him and everything He stands for, so we may receive what we ask Him through His Begotten Son Jesus Christ, according to His will. God bless you.

Say To That Mountain MOVE

mountain2And when they came to the crowd, a man came up to him and, kneeling before him, said, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly. For often he falls into the fire, and often into the water. And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not heal him.” And Jesus answered, “O faithless and twisted generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was healed instantly. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:10-20

Encouragement: No matter what your mountain is, God can move it! Without FAITH, it is impossible to please God, so if you know God is your Father, You need to believe that He, (not you) is capable of moving the mountain, because it is His power that moves it. I learnt that I cannot keep denying God’s power by being afraid of what is around me. Evil has no power over you unless it was given authority from above! Look up, because it is there that your redemption comes. It is God who decides who is right and wrong, and as He judges justly, no evil can overcome His children, and no devil bound for hell can snatch them from His hands. Take courage child of God, He knows what He is doing. Do not be like Thomas and doubt, but believe in the power of God. All things are possible with God. All you need to do is believe Him, and wait patiently for what you need, and in His own timing, He will deliver it. God grant that you do exactly what He tells you every time, because His word does not return to Him void. Keep faithful to the end. God bless you.
