Fresh Oil!!!

This is what many of you need right now. Oil being one of the symbols representing the Holy Spirit. Fresh oil means you need a refilling. You've losted that loving feeling.

Ask God to annoint you even now. Be filled up with the Holy Spirit my friends, be filled to overflowing. Hallelujah!!!

Declaration Day!!!

Declaration Day is here! Remember those who have gone on before us.

When I was a kid, this was a big day. We visited every grave yard where a loved one was buried. I would always walk around and look at the markers that had pictures incased in the stone, many were of young service men killed during WWII. I thank God I live in America, and I thank Him for those who have and still are fighting to keep her free.

Are We Enabling The Poor To Stay That Way?

For the last 24 to 36 hours, I have been burdened about feeding the homeless, or whoever they are that eat free everyday at one of two places here. I feel that we who are doing the feeding and work, are enabling these (the same people everyday over & over & over) to stay where they are. I've noticed the workers wait on them hand and foot. This may make the servers feel humble and Christ like, but I think the ones receiving the free food, should do something as well.

Let them clean up, sweep, mop, wash dishes, bring a can good from time to time. Let them serve the food. Or even help prepare it. God's Word says that He feeds the birds of the air, (like when grain falls from a passing truck as they make a turn), but those birds still have to come down off of that telephone wire, to pick it up.

I know this is crazy, but I'm really burdened about this. I see the same older christian people, working their finger's to the bones to feed these, whom I feel are taking advantage of it.

I am going to pass out a questionaire next week asking those who eat free, if they work? Will they work? Can you pass a drug test? And to show up at a specific time to work for a fair wage, and see how many do. Though I don't have a job for them, I will give them a free meal coupon from a local restaurant to those who do. I just have to see if they are causing these good Christian servers to become co-dependent.

My Bible says the poor will always be with you, and when you help a "truly" poor person (many of these get a check every month from the government), then you are doing it to Christ as well, but It also says that if a man doesn't work, he doesn't eat.

I do know that some of these we are feeding do work when they can find a job and get to it, and I realize some have mental problems (from mild to way out there), yet I see some wearing nice jewelry, riding expensive bicycles, and yesterday one man was driving a Cadillac Escalade. Perhaps this is how they can afford such nice stuff, because "Christians" are making it to easy for them.

That small black church works their butts off for these people, two men in their 60's, and two women in their 80's, serving 8 meals a month, and I have seen only one "eater" ever donate some food to them, and only one that helped clean up, in the 2 months I have been helping and observing.

I'm just burdened that we in the church are following suite with the government, and keeping these where they are, through hand outs. That isn't what Jeus wants us to do. Am I crazy?

P.S. There is a difference between the "working" poor, as many of us are in this boat that may need a little help from time to time, and the "not wanting to work" poor. Big Love!!!

When was the last time you were in Church? When was the last time you truly felt the Holy Spirit move? Or seen a moving of the Spirit? Didn't want the service to end? Someone saved? Someone broken before God? A simple rededication? Don't you get tired of "nothing" happening? Good grief Charlie Brown. do something exciting for a change! "RADICAL"!!!!!!!!!!

God never called us to sit quietly and calmly in the pew of a dead organization! He said as you go, make disciples and baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!!! Have you been doing this or seen anyone else practicing this command from Jesus? Get RADICAL!!!

Jesus is coming back for His Bride, the True Church, not some dead dormant people, but those who are ALIVE IN CHRIST!!!! RADICAL!!!!

Hook up with a ministry that's doing something that can't be explained away by man!!!

The Biblical Way.

I have been praying for you.

The first thing you must look at is, have you truly confessed your sins to God, and shared with Him the need for Jesus His son, as your Savior. When you did this, was God drawing you to this decision, if so, that was the Holy Spirit drawing you.

Second, did you truly repent of your sins and accept the teaching and invitation of Jesus? And pray and ask Him into your heart and ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit so He could lead you daily?

Third, do you read the Bible? Start in the Book of John, then go to Acts and Romans........stay out of the Old Testament for awhile. Read Galations, Ephesians, Colossians and Phillipians. When I back slid on God, was when I wasn't reading my Bible. Hearing what God has has to say, in the Bible is more important than what we have to say, in prayer, but don't stop praying.

Lastly, every morning get up and ask the Holy Spirit to quide your day. Many rise up and decide if they want the Spirit in their life or not, we try to ditch Him when we don't feel spiritual, and ask Him to join us when we do or get in a bind. He leads us, not us leading Him.

Dear God in Heaven, please give ___________ a clear understanding of all that they ask in Jesus name I pray. God Bless!!!

Soul Winning!!!

One on One Soul Winning still works best for me. Just them, me and the power of the Holy Spirit, drawing them and speaking through me. It just works!!!!

Members say that the pastor is to get out there and bring people into the church so it can grow, but remember "sheep produce sheep"...........of course the pastor is a sheep as well. A good pastor is concerned more about enlarging the Kingdom of Heaven, rather just growing a church.

Homey Don't Play That Game.

Just got in from helping feed some homeless folks in the area. Got jumped on by a retired cop (security, why do you need security when the Holy Spirit is on the scene?), but lined him up.........people just don't get it. You can't talk down to these who are homeless and hungry, they are hurtin.

He thought I was one of them and that's cool, but he wasn't expecting my response, when I told him, do not talk down to me!!!!

If this man sees these folks that eat there as a problem, he needs to go, actually I will pray right now for that to happen. God remove the attitude from this man's heart towards these that we feed, or remove him from this position, in Jesus name I pray. Cochise

The church in the New Testament impacted the world. It changed culture from Jerusalem to Judea to Samaria and to the ends of the earth. The early disciples turned the world upside down with their message, their lives, their commitment, and their passion.

But what about you? Are you praying for boldness? Or have you become satisfied with the status quo—afraid to offend, almost apologetic of presenting Jesus as the only way to Heaven? If so, then it’s time to join the radical mission of Jesus in your church, community, and world!

The book of Acts is a foundation to share powerful examples of how the church is fulfilling the revolutionary mission of Jesus and why the church today should be known for:

• Its passion to dream (Acts 17:6)
• Its diversity and unlimited reach (Acts 1:8; 10:1-48)
• Its mind-blowing growth (Acts 2:41-47; 4:4)
• Its confrontation of culture (Acts 4:13-22)
• Its supernatural power (Acts 4:23-31)
• Its extravagant giving (Acts 4:32-37)
• Its willingness to risk (Acts 5:17-42)
• Its constant motion (Acts 13:41-52)
• Its unswerving persistence to go and turn the world upside down (Acts 20:22-24)

Where I preached last Sunday.

The Cursed Fig Tree.


And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.

And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Why Did Jesus Curse That Fig Tree? Because it lied, it was suppose to have had small young figs on it, but it didn't. The Lord takes this opportunity to stress to His disciples the necessity of FRUITFULNESS!

The curse of the fig tree is for hypocrisy & unfruitfulness. How about you? Are you a witness of Christ? Do you bear fruit? Have you ever shared your salvation experience with another person?

Unless The Father Draw Him

John 6:44

Jesus said "No one can come to Me, unless the Father who sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up on the last day.'' (John 6:44). Many refer to this verse in an effort to support a man-made doctrine which says that only those whom the Lord "calls'' in some mystical way can be saved. They will say that this calling is some sort of direct operation of the Spirit. Calvinism teaches that man is totally passive and cannot do anything until God zaps him with some special anointing, thereby enabling him to believe. Such an idea is foreign to the scriptures.

Our Lord does draw people to Him, and no one can come to the Lord apart from God's drawing power. But this is not a matter of God electing to save some of us and condemn others of us arbitrarily. Consider: God wants all to be saved, and the reason some are lost is not because God has unconditionally chosen them to be.

For Whom Does God Desire Salvation?
The good news is that God does not desire anyone to be lost. No one! God is "...patient, not wishing for any to perish." (II Peter 3:9). God is "compassionate" (Matthew 9:36; Psalm 86:15) God is "...just" (Romans 3:24-26). God is "Sorrowful" that many are lost (Ezekiel 18:23; 31,32; cf. Matthew 23:37). To suggest that man cannot respond to God's gospel apart from a special anointing or calling that God gives to them that He does not give to all others makes God responsible for the lost being lost. But that does not fit with the Biblical description of God's character and nature.

God made salvation available to all. Salvation is available for all men, not just a select few. Jesus died for everyone (Hebrews 2:9; John 3:16). God wants all to come to know the truth (I Timothy 2:4). The invitation is open to all, 24 hours a day. There's no such thing as waiting on God's "special call.'' (Matthew 11:28-30; Revelation 22:17). He has already issued His call, and it has gone out unto the whole world. Any of us can choose to answer it, or not.

How God Draws People Unto Himself
The context of Jesus' statement explains how God draws men and women to Himself. There is nothing mystical about it. The following verse in the context (John 6:45) reveals how God draws men unto Himself. "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught of God.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me." Note the words "taught" and "every man" (all drawn the same way; by being taught) and "hear" and "learn" and "come". These are not mystical words. They are common, everyday words which are used to describe how it is that people are drawn to Christ.

What is it that is taught and heard and learned? The means or method by which God "calls'' or "draws'' all men is the Gospel. "And it was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ." (II Thessalonians 2:14). There is no special, mystical anointing of the Holy Spirit, but rather, the Holy Spirit calls men through the gospel; and it is the gospel that is the power (Romans 1:16).

God draws people unto Himself through the teaching of the gospel. The preaching of the gospel is God's power, his drawing power, to save (I Corinthians 1:18-21). Therefore, all people, when they hear the gospel, at any moment, have the ability to respond to God's gospel call. They also have the ability to reject it (Acts 13:45-48).

Sinners are saved by God's grace when they respond in faithful obedience to the gospel that draws them to God (Matthew 7:21). God is always ready for men to repent and obey (Acts 17:30). It is those who will do so that God has predestined for salvation (1 Thessalonians 5:9). This is an important concept to recognize. God has not predestined individuals to be saved or lost, but rather, has predestined the method by which we are saved. If we obey the gospel, we are baptized "into Christ" (Romans 6:3,4). God has predestined all those "in Christ" to be "blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places" (Ephesians 1:3). But it is up to us as to whether we will obey or not.

How To Be Drawn To God's Son And Be Saved
There are not many ways to be drawn to God. In fact, there is only one way to come to the Father (John 14:6). One cannot get to heaven through Jesus apart from obeying Him (Hebrews 5:9). Those who attempt to enter another way are counted as thieves and robbers and will be unsuccessful (John 10:1).

How does one answer God's call? This is important for you to know because God is calling you. Have you answered? If not, will you? Will you call upon Him? For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved." (Acts 2:21). The people who heard this wanted to know how to do so (Acts 2:37) They were told "Repent and be baptized, everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2:38). Men must believe and obey (Mark 16:16). Saving faith is alive, not dead, and proves itself by obedience to the gospel. The gospel is God's call to us by which we are drawn to Him. Our obedient faith needs to be the answer we give His call.

What Stimulates You?

I have been praying without ceasing on why people don't want to come to a Christian worship services these days. Could it be because God isn't there?

Hosea 5:15 Then I will return to my place until they have borne their guilt and seek my face, in their misery they will earnestly seek me.”

I would not be afraid to say that millions of people have attended or are attending worship services through out our nation, state and cities that have never experienced the Awesome Power of God, the Presence of Christ and the Movement of the Holy Spirit, why? Again, perhaps it's like what was written in Hosea, God has gone back to His place, intending to stay there until the people truly want Him.

I understand that the church is competing with television, movies, concerts and the nightly entertainment, which is all exciting and stimulates our souls and emotions as we attend, watch and listen, but my friends, IF you ever experience God one time, in a way that He wants us to, you will put Him at the top of your list on who to seek for that sensation that stimulates every fiber in our body, every emotion in our soul and every space in our quickened spirit. I have been there, but not lately, (other than in my prayer closet).

It's very hard to find a place in America, and I'm not saying there isn't any, where you can experience the awesomeness of God. He just doesn't show up anymore, because He is not asked to. Yes we pray to Him, and we thank Him and even ask Him to heal the sick, BUT is HE with us, is His Power with us? Do we loose the Holy Spirit in our church services when we come into worship, or do we keep Him held back and dormant?

Rev 3:20, says that Jesus stands at the door and knocks, wanting to come in. This is not referring to a persons heart, rather read the text, He is outside the church knocking, and wanting to come in, and as many believe, as do I, that the door handle that opens the door is on the inside, but very seldom, do we let any part of God into our services.

I know that church can compete with the theater, the television and the tavern, if we will just let Him in and let Him loose once we come together for praise and worship. Even the reading of His Word will stimulate the spirit, if we want it.

Give me a church, that isn't afraid of God, and I will promise you that all other forms of stimulation of the emotions will soon fade away in your life, as we connect to the One who will give us the power to get through everyday, with great joy. I promise!!!

Seek God while He may be found,

John 3:16-21 People Love The Dark!!!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict:

Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.

But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Lukewarm Christians???

Lukewarm people feel secure because they attend church, made a profession of faith at age twelve, were baptized (sometimes as a baby), came from a Christian family, vote Republican, or live in America.

Just as the prophets in the Old Testament warned Israel that they were not safe because they lived in the land of Israel, so we are not safe just because we wear the label Christian or because some people persist in calling us a "Christian Nation".

Lukewarm people probably drink and swear less than average, but besides that, they really aren't very different from your typical unbeliever. They equate their partially sanitized lives with holiness, but they couldn't be more wrong.

The truth is, their lives wouldn't look much different if they suddenly stopped believing in God.

Words In Italics Are Mine.

Lay Aside Your Background Of Beliefs And Open Your Mind.

"I don't practice religion.", I have heard this quiet often in the last 28 years.

If people would just open their minds and hearts, to understand the simpliest things. Though Christainity is religion, it is so different from other beliefs. I know that Christians have not always been right in their actions, such as burning what they assumed were witches, and other heidous crimes to humanity in the far past, yet this belief has done more for this old sick world than any others.

My prayer is this, regardless of your background are you willing to SET IT ASIDE, an just respond to Biblical Truths?

Would you honestly ask yourself if just maybe your beliefs and way of thinking possible could be wrong? Can you be open minded? This is when I have most learned the true things of God, and I am still learning to be even more open to the Spirit's revelations to me daily.

We need to base our understanding of who God really is and not who we think He is or want Him to be, and what Jesus did (as far as coming to earth in the flesh and the importance of that) and the experience of the Holy Spirit on Biblical truths, and not out of fear or cultural upbringing.

Christianity is far more than a religion, it is a way of life that produces better people, and thus creating a better world. I believe that is what the founding fathers of our nation had in mind as they penned the laws and rules of our Nation when they begin to seriously develope what America was to be. Little did they know that this country, called a christian nation, would become that in name only, as we have drifted far from the Word.

Maybe you don't practice religion, but I know for a fact that many who say this, have asked God to help them in their time of need, in times of uncertainity and when they or a loved one is sick. These also blame God for any bad things that might transpire in their lives, thus recognizing a Supreme Being, but not wanting to practice this thing called religion.

I love these people no matter what, for when they tell me that they don't practice any religion it isn't directed to me personally and I pray that their hearts would be open to Biblical truths. God bless them.

I John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

The Great White Throne Judgement.

Revelations 20:11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

I feel that many of you think I am crazy, and I am Crazy In Love With God!!! I also feel many of you don't want to hear or read what I write, though some of you want it, and even more.

The above Scripture's is what is referred to as the Great White Throne Judgement, where those who die in sin, or those who have never received Jesus Christ into their lives as Savior will be judged and cast into a lake of fire.

I believe we who are saved will be there to witness this (I Corinthians 6:2 Do you not know that the Lord’s people will judge the world?).

My heart will be broke and tears will flow on this day. For on this sad occasion, the lost will look up and see people like me that warned them of this day, and who offered them a new life in Christ and as eyes meet, people like me will be remembered. You will remember me writing this BLOG, and that you refused to accept God's offer of salvation, if you do.

There will be tears, and I too will be ashamed as well. For you see many of us who were saved from this lake of fire through our faith in Christ DID NOT witness as we should have. I personally will be saddened by those who have died right here in New Smyrna Beach that I could have witnessed to, but didn't. I will feel their blood on my hands as they are cast into outer darkness.

This is going to be a day of terrible, terrible happenings. Those whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life (that didn't receive Christ into their hearts, that's how you get your name written there, in His blood by the way) will be crying for another chance, "I always meant to make things right God". they will cry.

And those of us who failed to tell them about how to get saved, will be weeping just as loud, as we see friends and family being eternally seperated from us. My heart cries right now, knowing that some have already died without Jesus.

And it's broken even more knowing that many that I love will not be there with me.

Now is the day to get right with God. You are reading this for a reason, why not bow your head right now and admit you are a sinner and ask God for forgiveness of you sins, and ask Jesus into your life. Admit him into your daily walk and become a disciple today.

Please Lord use this BLOG to win my friends and family to Christ and to get their names written into the Lambs Book of Life. Amen

A New Heaven and a New Earth

Revelation 21:1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

If you do pray and accept Christ as your personal saviour, please let me know as I can rejoice with you. If you have any questions, please contact me.

His, Therefore Yours,



My heart is so full of the Holy Spirit that I cannot even think of nothing but doing the will of God. Serving Him and loving Him, by doing the same to the people of this world. Jesus says that when we do these things, love, feed, clothe, house, the less of these your brethren, then you are doing to Him as well.

I am praying hard for the eyes of the true belivers to be opened to the truth of His word, and that we would take our eyes off of self and the things of this world, and focus on what is right and good in His eyes.

Why do we give God our left overs, our crumbs while we set back in the lap of luxury and proudly proclaim, "Look what I have done. See what I have accomplished." While 3.2 children are dying every minute in this world that we live in, dying from starvation and preventable disease.

Some of you believe in re-incarnation, but do you know what will determine what you come back as? Or where you will be placed? According to that belief, you will be rewarded in another life, by what "good' you did in this life. Many people, if there is such a thing as re-incarnation, will come back as one of those whom they have forgot, and likely in a third world country, poor, very poor.

Do something today to lay up treasures in Heaven. Give until it hurts, and watch God bless you. It is the only time in Scripture where God says test me (Malachi). See if you can out give God, I dare you.

The American dream is a farce, if you are a Christian. No where does it say to have the biggest house, the most expensive car or millions in the bank. Rather the Word says to be a disciple, sell all you have and give it to the poor and come follow Him. The Bible says to humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and in due time He will exhalt you. His word promises each of us that He will supply all our needs. Our food, our clothing and shelter. Jesus says go and make disciples, and take nothing with you...........that certainly isn't the American way, eh?

I see a hurting world everyday, and I talk to the One who is in control of this universe, and He is saying........."Let go of your worldly possesions and GO ye into the world."

To me the rich man isn't the billionaire, but the person who is sharing God's love with his fellow man. Walking by faith, rather than by what they have in the bank.

We quote Scripture, but do we really believe them, Phil 4:13, "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength" really believe that? Jesus says, "Greater things than I do, you can do." You ever raised the dead, gave sight to the blind, won someone to Christ. Do we believe Him. Have we no faith. For without faith it is impossible to please God!!!

I implore you, read the Word. Start with John! Go to Acts and Romans next. Read the 4 Pauline Epistles, Galations,Ephesians,Colossians, and Phillipians. Then hunker down in the Book of James for about a week, and see what Our job, as born again believers really is.

God help us to see the Truth!!! To take to heart what our mission is as saved people. Burn Matthew 28: 19-20 into our hearts. Give us fresh Oil from Heaven my Father, and set our souls on fire to reach out to the dead in sin, the hurting both saved and lost in Jesus name, give us power over the devil and authority and strength to be your chosen disciples from this day forward.

Spend Yourself For Others! Be Third!

Jesus First, Others Second, Then You!!! God has so much for us if we would just apply this thinking into our daily lives.Isaiah 58
True Fasting
1 “Shout it aloud, do not hold back.
Raise your voice like a trumpet.
Declare to my people their rebellion
and to the descendants of Jacob their sins.
2 For day after day they seek me out;
they seem eager to know my ways,
as if they were a nation that does what is right
and has not forsaken the commands of its God.
They ask me for just decisions
and seem eager for God to come near them.
3 ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say,
‘and you have not seen it?
Why have we humbled ourselves,
and you have not noticed?’
“Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please
and exploit all your workers.
4 Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife,
and in striking each other with wicked fists.
You cannot fast as you do today
and expect your voice to be heard on high.
5 Is this the kind of fast I have chosen,
only a day for people to humble themselves?
Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed
and for lying in sackcloth and ashes?
Is that what you call a fast,
a day acceptable to the LORD?

6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
11 The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.

13 “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath
and from doing as you please on my holy day,
if you call the Sabbath a delight
and the LORD’s holy day honorable,
and if you honor it by not going your own way
and not doing as you please or speaking idle words,
14 then you will find your joy in the LORD,
and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land
and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.”
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
