Leviticus 22:17-23:44

Twice in today’s reading God opens up His ordinances and the blessings that come along with following His commands, to those who are not his people, "Give Aaron and his sons and all the Israelites these instructions, which apply to those who are Israelites by birth as well as to the foreigners living among you.” (22:18) In the 22nd verse of chapter 23 foreigners are included with the poor as benefactors of the grain deliberately left in the field. God has always allowed for those who were not His people to benefit from the “crumbs” from those who were and are His people as we read Saturday in the Gospel reading (Mark 7:28) What a mighty God we serve!!

What I really like about today’s reading is that it shows how our God is a God who loves parties. He want’s His people to not only reverence and obey Him He wants them to have a good time in doing it. There are lots of “feasts” and sacred assemblies, food and more food. God wants us to celebrate Him and who we are in Him. So Christian, please don’t walk around with a long face, shout Hallelujah from time to time because we serve a God that enjoys our enjoyment of all the things He has done for us.

Grace and peace,
Ramona

22Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ye shall not offer these unto the LORD, nor make an offering by fire of them upon the altar unto the LORD. 23Either a bullock or a lamb that hath any thing superfluous or lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer for a freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted. 24Ye shall not offer unto the LORD that which is bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut; neither shall ye make any offering thereof in your land.
44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
ALL that we ACCOMPLISH is due to GOD being there for us EVERY day of our life.

Before I get get started Amen, Amen! Ramona. God does love a party and He loves to show out in His love and admiration and adornment for His children. I love to have get togethers in His name. Just last night, I had a womens bible study review based on a book by Elizabeth George, A Woman's High Calling. Ten Essentials to Godly Living. I get so excited about these get togethers. The food is nice and fellowship. However the annointing in the place is unbelievable. We had 5 precious ladies come to this and I just tell you that it is a party and a rejoicing time in heaven I believe when you are being diligent to God's work, you are serving others so to speak with the Word and opening your home to new and old believers. Wow!! I laughed at todays Proverbs 10:19: Too much talk leads to sin, Be sensible and keep your mouth shut. In our study book in Chapter 3 from last nights get together, it talks about slander and malicious talk and that speech of that nature comes straight from Satan. It gave 4 steps to avoid too much talk that I thought I would share with you guys. It is the 4 T's to live by: Time: don't waste or have too much idle time, keep too busy so that way you won't run to the phone or neighbors and tattle or be a busy body. Telephone: keep off the phone as much as possible, in fact Elizabeth George says to keep a daily time to return calls, she chooses 11:30-12 and 5:00-5:30, that way most people are doing lunch, and getting home or preparing dinner so they are short for talk anyway. Talk: when you do talk to people, keep it short and sweet, that way you won't invite in "other" topics of gossip or slander into the conversation. and last one is: Tarry: which means, don't be so sudden to answer or respond back to someone, it's ok to say, "Let me think or pray on it awhile and I will get back to you". 4 T's, Time, Telephone, Talk and Tarry. Keep those and it will help all of us to be not slanderous and foolish people! Amen!! God Bless you guys, take care~~DeeDee

I look back at all of the good things that have happened to me, and I definitely see God doing them. For a long time I didn't recognize that it was God, but lately I've begun to see him working as he works, which is really cool, and helps me when I get impatient or don't get the answer I want.
