A Rich Man

I am a rich, rich man. Do I have millions of dollars in the bank? No. Do I run big corporations? No. Do I have a vast and flourishing stock portfolio? No.

I have all I need.

I have a Loving, Heavenly Father that watches over me. As long as I seek His Torah and love Him back with my whole heart, soul and might I will be a rich man.  As long as I acknowledge that I, as a person, will fail to do this perfectly but He sent His Son to die so that I might live, I will be a rich man.

I have a loving wife, who takes care of me and completes me. I am a rich, rich man.

I have good health. I can function pretty much like I did when I was a  young man.  I know I am using a cane at the present time but I feel that soon it will be gone. I still have good eyesight and only have to use glasses to read, my hearing is excellent.

I am a rich man.

I have a loving family.  I have five daughters that love me that have given Brenda and I grandchildren to love. I am sure one day the daughter that has left will come back.  I have  a Mom, brother and a sister and aunts and uncles and nephews,  nieces (wait a minute, I have only one niece, Sunshine you are VERY special!)  that love me.

I am a rich man.

I live in a free country.  I own enough to meet my needs. I have access to entertainment but more importantly, more than enough access to teachers of the Word of God and more material about said Word than I have time to utilize.

I am a rich man.

I thank the God of  Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for it too.

One of the Reasons Words Are So Powerful

One of the hardest things for my finite mind to grasp is the fact that the Creator, The Great I AM, Adonai, YHVH, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or whatever you want to call Him created our world with His words!

Let me put that another way. He SPOKE the universe into existence.  This is awesome!  What are words?

Sound vibrations put together to form syllables.

Brad Scott  www.wildbranch.org has an excellent teaching on this.

Can you grasp what this means?

Ok. As if that wasn’t enough, all matter is basically 99% nothing!!!! Look at an atom. You’ve got a nucleus and protons and electrons. Scientists have calculated that the space between them is like 1 to the 13th power. I cannot remember the exact figure right now but it’s amazing.

The Word of the Lord is Life. How much this is true we will not know till after the Millennium.

KWIT COMPLAINING

Be Content With What You Have

Adonai woke me up this morning with these words. It’s a message we would do well to hear. God gave us the innate ability to want things. To strive for more. To be all we can be. This is something that we must, of all things, have in balance.
The children of Israel walked in the wilderness 40 years on a journey that was supposed to take weeks. The main theory being because of the sin of the “Golden Calf”.
But in Hebrew thought more that one answer can be right. Has anyone noticed the amount of griping and complaining the Israelite s did? Our Heavenly Father makes it plain that you cannot be worshiping Him and complaining at the same time.

Deuteronomy 11:13 (NJB)
13 Depend on it: if you faithfully obey the commandments I enjoin on you today, loving Yahweh your God and serving him with all your heart and all your soul,

Parents know that complaining is not loving. Complaining is showing discontentment at the present circumstances. And blaming someone else for it.
The Israelite s complained about there circumstances. No water, no food, etc.,
After God had showed them mighty deeds, like splitting the Red Sea, and the 10 curses on Egypt. You would think they would have realized that all they really needed was God. I think that’s what he wanted them to realize.

Instead of bellyaching about everything.

Why Dennis the Menace flopped

The reason Dennis the Menace flopped on TV and the movies was because the kid that played him was too tall.
I guarantee if they would have found a short, plumpy blonde boy he would have been a sensation!!
