Ethics Y1 Harvest and Thanksgiving

Ethics Y1 Harvest and Thanksgiving

For Giving thanks to God for the Harvest we are working in now and WITHOUT successful reprisals from Evil. There will be reprisals but God will overcome and we want to be a part of him when he is overcoming.

“Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

We’re talking about putting on the whole armor of God.

Ephesians 6:11-13 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

How are we going to stand? By putting on the whole armor of God. We’ve got to make sure and put on the whole armor, not just a part.

Ephesians 6:14-19 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

How many of you guys are glad to know the truth? Isn’t it the most wonderful thing in the world? Our job is to go out and share that with people.

John 14:19-21 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

In order for us to be strong, God wants us to know his word.

Job 23:12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.” {Jay Ugali. Be a Man. www.pillars.net}

The Author and composer above make a necessary point. There are no gaps. However there is a chance to broaden a road already well made and widen it enough here to fit 4 cars on it at the same time. We are dealing with somewhat of a mountain pass here. Lets get some Road Construction in here and make it possible to create a town at the end of the road, where we can safely work while we wait to take our turn at the gates of heaven.

The Generation of Baby Boomers are counting on their Children to carry quite a load. Thats a good reason to accept immigration. And lets not get hasty it has to be quality Immigration. Not just put’em up for a few years and ship’em back either. When they go back into the other nations we must make them prepared mentally to stay in a world that is suffocating from the Sin. Without becoming part of it. Thats a task.

The Armor under discussion is available to all and is described in the other articles. Lets show some more ways to put it on so we are ready before during and after you Harvest then Give Thanks. As instructed by Christ, and his personally trained personnel as well as the prophets.

Jhn 1:12   But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:

I am a Child of God” {Pastor Thomas. I am list. Message: Steps to Spiritual Freedom. Part 2: Gaining Control of Your Spiritual Life by Understanding the Problem. www.pillars.net}

This means any Saint (anyone striving towards the mark of the high calling of Christ) is “a child of God! No matter how successful anyone may feel.”

However we must not get high minded:

1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

“But by the grace of God, I am what I am.” {Pastor Thomas. I am list. Message: Steps to Spiritual Freedom. Part 2: Gaining Control of Your Spiritual Life by Understanding the Problem. www.pillars.net}

The next step: What goes where. When you study the following precepts and attend to applying each in the following order the Armor is on. Subtle yet strong.

A) 2Pe 1:5 ¶ And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

B) 2Pe 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

C) 2Pe 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

2Pe 1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make [you that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2Pe 1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

2Pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

2Pe 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The end result of applying this will be a thankful heart to the God of heaven.

Isa 9:6   For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Eph 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

So the Armor comes on every day, maybe a little different way every time. So Boredom doesn’t set in. But so long as you pay attention to the specific strapping, it will protect you and those who you are seeking for; those your praying for. And trying to help.

Hbr 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Jam 2:22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

Thoughts manifest in action are called “faith.” Thoughts not manifest in action are called “wishful thinking.” Reality is based on faith, not wishful thinking. Bob Vincent. http://www.pillars.net/quotes/bob-vincent/faith-based-reality

1Ti 2:5 For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

So when Giving Thanks to God for another year, and working hard in the harvest year, keep Jesus’s life as your go between. Throughout the the whole year.

“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and

Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me ” to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:…to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. - Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A. D. 1789. G.ø WASHINGTON. ” {George Washington. President of the USA.
