The cross did not save Jesus and it will not save you.But the blood of Jesus will save you if you repent.JOHN 14-6       Jesus saith unto him,I am the way,the truth,and the life:No man cometh unto the father,but by me.


THE SINNERS PRAYER

Dear Lord Jesus.Thank you for dying on the cross for me.
I confess that I am a sinner before God.
I acknowledge that by your death and sacrifice that you have paid the penalty of my sins for me.
Please come into my heart and become the Lord of my life.
As you gave your life,I give my life to you.
I will take up my cross and follow you,not as I will,but to follow your perfect will for my life

Bible Verse Of The Day

Luke 12:35-40
Let your loins be girded about, and [your] lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed [are] those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find [them] so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. Luke 12:35-40




Tis Carol's Place

  The Argument

Jesus and Satan have an argument as to who is the better computer programmer. This goes on for a few hours until they come to an agreement to hold a contest, with God to be the judge. They set themselves before their computers and begin. They type furiously, lines of code streaming up the screen for several hours straight. Seconds before the end of the competition, a bolt of lightning strikes, taking out the electricity. Moments later, the power is restored, and God announces that the contest is over. He asks Satan to show what he has come up with. Satan is visibly upset and cries, "I have nothing. I lost it all when the power went out." "Very well, then," says God, "let us see if Jesus fared any better..." Jesus enters a command and the screen comes to life with a vivid display, and voices of an angelic choir pour forth from the speakers... Satan is astonished. He stutters, "B-b-but how? I lost everything, yet Jesus' program is intact! How did he do it?" God chuckles, "Everybody knows...Jesus saves!"

  
A Frail Old Angels Cry

Last night I had a dream It had a tale to tell. I dreamed I saw an Angel; Poor thing, he wasn't feeling well. His body bruised and battered His wings were ripped and torn This Angel could hardly walk, He looked so tired and worn. I walked right up to him to ask; Angel? How can this be? He turned around and paused a (bit), Then he spoke these words to me: "I'm Your Guardian Angel, A great task as you can see. You've run amok most all your life: Look what it's done to me. These bruises are from shielding Ýou In times both dire and íll. Those alcoholic bouts and drugs you've used I've often paid the bill You see my wings are ripped and torn; How often they have flown you From evils unaware. Each mark is it's own story of deadly wounds destroyed. You made me wish~~more than once- That I was unemployed. If only you could make ít Standing on your own; Oh, don't you fret  or worry but please try to remember I'm getting old and frail. I could not believe all I had heard, Let alone how much he cared. I wept upon his shoulder, Then left him ín despair. The next day I sat and pondered: Should I really try? Ånd ín the distance I thought I heard; A frail Old Angel Cry.

message of the SHOFAR

SHOFAR Is Hebrew for a trumpet made from a Ram's Horn

What's it all about? Anywhere in the Old Testament where it is translated trumpet, the Hebrew word used is SHOFAR.   The LORD led us to the story of Gideon (Judges 7) - how HE sent Gideon's 300 to do battle with a heavily armed enemy that numbered many thousands.  However, HE instructed Gideon to go out with a pitcher and torch in one hand, and a Shofar in the other hand.  At the appointed time, the 300 blew their Shofars in unity, which firstly caused a restlessness in the enemies camp, resulting in their total confusion to the point of them turning on each other and killing each other with their swords.  We also see in the story of Joshua that he too, won the war by blowing the Shofar.

I believe that the LORD is in the process of restoring to His People, all of the truths that have been stolen by the devil over the last 2000 years.  If the devil made a point of taking it, then we can be sure there is power in it - he doesn't bother with trivialities!  We have in the Shofar, a powerful tool for our Worship and a powerful weapon for our Spiritual Warfare. In the Bible, the blowing of the Shofar was first heard when God called Moses to the summit of Mt. Sinai to receive the tablets of the Law.  And, it will be sounded at the end of days to announce the return of the Messiah and the rapture of His Bride (1 Thess. 4:16). Scriptural Significance for Blowing the Shofar GOD Himself blows it! - Zech. 9:14  "Then the LORD will appear over them and His arrow will go forth like lightening; and the LORD GOD will blow the SHOFAR, and will march in the storm winds of the south." Gives commands to angelic hosts - Matt. 24:31 "And HE will send forth His angels with a great SHOFAR and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other." Priestly instrument of praise and worship - Chr. 29:26 "And the Levites stood with the musical instruments of David, and the priests with the SHOFAR's."   2 Chr. 29:28 "While the whole assembly worshipped, the singers also sang and the SHOFARs. sounded; all this continued until the burnt offering was finished."   Ps. 150:3 "Praise Him with the SHOFAR sound; praise Him with harp and lyre."  PS. 98:6 "With SHOFARs and the sound of the horn shout joyfully before the King, the LORD."  2 Sam. 6:15 "So David and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouting and the sound of the SHOFAR."  IS. 27:13 "It will come about also in that day that a great SHOFAR will be blown; and those who were perishing and scattered will come and worship the LORD in the holy mountain..." A powerful catalyst to bring the glory of God - 2 Chr. 5:13 "in unison when the SHOFARER's and the singers were to make themselves heard with one voice to praise and to glorify the LORD, and when they lifted up their voice accompanied by the SHOFARs and cymbals and instruments of music, and when they praised the LORD saying, 'He indeed is good for His lovingkindness is everlasting,' then the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud...' " Instrument used during great celebration - 1 Chr. 133:8 "And David and all Israel were celebrating before GOD with all their might, even with songs and with lyres, harps, tambourines, cymbals, and with SHOFARS." Essential in going to War - Num. 10:9 "And when you go to war in your land against the adversary who attacks you, then you shall sound an alarm with the SHOFARs, that you may be remembered before the LORD your God, and be saved from your enemies." To be blown constantly in battle -  Josh. 6:8-9 "And it was so, that when Joshua had spoken to the people, the seven priests carrying the seven SHOFARS of rams' horns before the LORD went forward and blew the SHOFARS; and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them.  And the armed men went before the priests who blew the SHOFARS, and the rear  guard came after the ark, while they continued to blow the SHOFARS." Corporate blowing is powerful - Judges 7:8 "So the 300 men took the people's provisions and their SHOFARS into their hands.  And Gideon sent all other men of Israel, each to his tent, but retained the 300 men; and the camp of Midian was below him in the valley."  Judges 7:20 "When the three companies blew the SHOFARS and broke the pitchers, they held the torches in their left hands and the SHOFARS in their right hands for blowing, and cried, 'A sword for the LORD and for Gideon' "  Judges 7:22 "And when they blew 300 SHOFARS, the LORD set the sword of one against another even throughout the whole army and the army fled." Heralds the Day of the LORD - Joel 2:1 "Blow a SHOFAR in Zion, and sound an alarm on My Holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; surely it is near." A SHOFAR will announce the 2nd Coming of Messiah - 1 Thess. 4:16 "For the LORD Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, with the SHOFAR of God and the dead in Christ shall rise." A SHOFAR will be blown before the dead rise - 1 Cor. 15:52 "in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last SHOFAR; for the SHOFAR will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed." Further Biblical References to the Blowing of the SHOFAR A call to gather for Worship2 Chron 29:26-28;  Ps. 98:6;  Ps.150:3;  2 Sam. 6:15Ushers in the presence of the LORD2 Sam. 6:15;  1 Chron. 15:14Make Proclamation1 Sam. 13:3Symbolising freedom and libertyLev. 25:9-10At the giving of the 10 CommandmentsEx. 19:16 & 19;  Ex. 20:18Sounds the alarm for warJosh. 6:4-20;  Joel 2:1;  Jer. 4:19 & 21;  Jer. 6:1 & 17At the coronation of a king1 Kings 1:34As a call to battle and warNumbers 10:9To induce fear and confusion in the enemyJudges 7:22For announcing and ushering in the weekly Sabbath and yearly festivals

Sounding the Shofar
The Shofar is one of the earliest musical instruments known to humanity. It was developed by the early Hebrews and is made from the horn of an animal, usually a ram but sometimes of a sheep, goat, mountain goat, antelope, or gazelle. The shofar is blown on many different occasions: on the Jubilee Year, on Rosh Hashana (New Years), also called Yom Teru'ah (the day of blowing,), in religious rites, or as a call to war. Today the shofar is synonymous with the High Holy Days. The shofar calls The Tekiah: the "blast," one long blast with a clear tone. TekiahThe Shevarim: a "broken," sighing sound of three short calls. ShevarimThe Teruah: the "alarm," a rapid series of nine or more very short notes. TeruahThe Tekiah Gedolah: "the great Tekiah," a single unbroken blast, held as long as possible. A combination of Tekiah, Shevarim, Teruah, ending with a Tekiah Gedolah. In fact there is no certainty on what a teruah sound really is. It could be a shevarim, a teruah or a combination of both. On Rosh Hashana, several combinations are used to accommodate the various opinions.

" Awake, sleepers from your sleep! Arise, slumberers, from your slumber! Scrutinise your deeds and return to repentance and remember your creator! Those forgetters of the truth in the vanities of time and those who stray all their year in vanity and emptiness which can neither help nor save. Look to your souls, better your ways and deeds. Let each one of you abandon your evil way and your thoughts which are not good." Hilkhot Teshuvah, chapter 3 Echoing from one people group to the next the Shofar blast encircle the globe.   Notes blown by man conveying a message, a message relayed from our God in heaven to man on earth.  Those who have ears let them listen. "Awake you who slumber unaware, I herald a new dawn of warfare, as ancient instruments of Jew and Gentile unite, ancient deceptions will crumble.  Summon the repentant and obedient troops.  Tremble with holy fear and heed the call, join the mighty army, sound the alarm.  Our God is coming so be  warned, prepare for the last trumpet call." The shofar symbolises the major theme of the Days of Repentance, during which we commemorate the beginning of the world. We try to make a new start within ourselves, and to return to the beginning of the cycle. The shofar, with its powerful and profound calls, removes the obstacles before us and helps us reach this new start.





May God bless you and keep you.
 May HE cause HIS face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May HE turn HIS face toward you and grant you peace.

Shalom AND GOD BLESS TILL THE WORK IS DONE
