God Encounter.

LUKE 1:5-17

“There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain

priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was

of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the

commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and

they both were now well stricken in years.

8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office

before God in the order of his course,

9 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn

 incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at

the time of incense.

11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on

the right side of the altar of incense.

12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell

upon him.

13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer

is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou

shalt call his name John.

14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice

at his birth.

15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink

neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy

Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their

God.

17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to

turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient

to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for

the Lord.”

 

God’s Message.

LUKE 3:1-18

“Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius

Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee,

and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of

Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,

2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came

unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the

baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

4 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet,

saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the

way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be

brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough

ways shall be made smooth;

6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of

him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the

wrath to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not

to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say

unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children

unto Abraham.

9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every

tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down,

and cast into the fire.

10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?

11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats,

let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let

him do likewise.

12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him,

Master, what shall we do?

13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is

appointed you.

14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what

shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man,

neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in

their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;

16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with

water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes

I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy

Ghost and with fire:

17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor,

and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will

burn with fire unquenchable.

18 And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the

people.”

 

God Confirms John The Baptist; As A Prophet.

LUKE 7:24-28

“And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to

speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into

the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

25 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment?

Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately,

are in kings' courts.

26 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto

you, and much more than a prophet.

27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger

 before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women

there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that

is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”

God’s Message..

REVELATION 1:10 – 3:22

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great

voice, as of a trumpet,

11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What

thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches

which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto

Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto

Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being

turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son

of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about

the paps with a golden girdle.

14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow;

and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace;

and his voice as the sound of many waters.

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth

went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the

sun shineth in his strength.

17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his

right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and

the last:

18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive

forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which

are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right

hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the

angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which

thou sawest are the seven churches.

2 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things

saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh

in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou

canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which

say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast

laboured, and hast not fainted.

4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast

left thy first love.

5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and

do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will

remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the

Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of

life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things

saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich)

and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and

are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the

devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and

ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and

I will give thee a crown of life.

11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second

death.

12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things

saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's

seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my

faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr,

who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there

them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a

stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed

unto idols, and to commit fornication.

15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the

Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight

against them with the sword of my mouth.

17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden

manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new

name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These

things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame

of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy

patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because

thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a

prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit

fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she

repented not.

22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit

adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their

deeds.

23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall

know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I

will give unto every one of you according to your works.

24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as

have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of

Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end,

to him will I give power over the nations:

27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a

potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my

Father.

28 And I will give him the morning star.

29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto

the churches.

3 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things

saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars;

I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art

dead.

2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are

ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold

fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on

thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come

upon thee.

4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled

their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are

worthy.

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment;

and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will

confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches.

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things

saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David,

he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man

openeth;

8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door,

and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast

kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say

they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to

come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved

thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep

 thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the

world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no

man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God,

and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of

my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new

Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I

will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches.

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These

things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning

of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would

thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I

will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and

have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched,

and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou

mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed,

and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint

thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore,

and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my

voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with

him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne,

even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his

throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto

the churches.”

and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing

a voice, but seeing no man.

8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened,

he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into

Damascus.

9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias;

and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold,

I am here, Lord.

11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which

is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called

Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,

12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and

putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.

13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man,

how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:

14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that

call on thy name.

15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel

unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the

children of Israel:

16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my

name's sake.

17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and

putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus,

that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me,

that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy

Ghost.

18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales:

and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was

Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.

20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he

is the Son of God.”
