Advantages of allowing the Light to illuminate the very existence to your soul.
Then the high priest rose up and all his companions, that is, the party of the Sadducees, and, filled with jealousy, laid hands upon the apostles and put them in the public jail. But during the night, the angel of the Lord opened the doors of the prison, led them out, and said, “Go and take your place in the temple area, and tell the people everything about this life.” Acts 5:17-20
And this is the verdict, that the Light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to Light, because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the Light and does not come toward the Light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the Truth comes to the Light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God. John 3:19-21
Acts 5:1-26, Psalm 34 & John 3:16-21
Take the time today and read Chapter Five of Acts and listen to the story of Ananias and Sapphira who experience God’s Will in the midst of the questioning by Peter who knew Ananias had kept a portion of his profits from the sale of his land before laying it at the feet of the Apostles as others had been doing. He asked, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart so that you lied to the Holy Spirit and retained part of the price of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain yours? And when it was sold, was it not still under your control? Why did you contrive this deed? You have lied not to human beings, but to God.” Acts 5:5-4
Here, we find the Spirit of God removing its last breath for the deed unfinished plaguing the soul making Ananias literally “scared to death.” Peter described the lie that comes upon us when we know what we are doing will make us “scared to death” because we lie to ourselves stealing away the life God has intended for you in Truth. You can feel it just as Ananias did when you go to fast to soon speaking falsely too fast too late or holding the gas pedal down too far too long. The reality of death will come upon you in an instant afflicting your body with torment as muscles twitch, faces become red or the stomach rumbles seething the lie we place upon our existence.
Jesus is asking us today to come to the Light and allow His Truth to be seen as the faith, hope and love of charity fills your heart with action, acceptance and advantages of allowing the Light to illuminate the very existence to your soul. You can feel it in the breath the Holy Spirit lifts you to as the water of your own body washes you clean from the eyes that people see the Christ in you. Allow them to be drawn to you in the action you accept to find God’s advantage living the Word of God for peace. Don’t become scared to death living in the dark but grow in the Light of Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to always live in the Light of Jesus. Thank You LORD for prayers answered. Praying for David’s skin graft surgery today. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day four of a Novena for Russ Thoms and his daughter Serenity. LORD from Psalm 83:19 I chant: ”Let them know that your name is LORD, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,

Forgiving Balance Due– In Honor of Al Martinez
Response not reaction
Forgiveness to relate
Hate harbors dissention
Love overcomes hate
I didn’t let go
Wronged to relate
Most act in confidence
Heart you can’t debate
Forgive others to find
God’s forgiveness in kind
Serenity times seven time
Imperfection being blind
God makes a new creature
By forgiving the balance due
Created by the Spirit Teacher
Christ dies for me and you
Forgiveness in the Blood of Truth
