Wig’s Word of God Today 1-17-2012
Blessed the people who know the war cry, who walk in the radiance of Your face, LORD. Psalm 89:16
1 Samuel 16:1-13, Psalm 89 & Mark 2:23-28
There are people who you pass every day on the streets who seem lost and confused but still know the LORD’s War Cry. These people don’t have the prettiest faces or the cleanest clothes but they do have the eyes of Christ and search for answers to their problems in prayer. Many times these people look as if they haven’t taken a bath in ages but walk in the righteousness of the LORD by their Baptism donning a clean heart and a lonely soul who shiver a night in the cold because their Free Will has taken them to the streets of survival.
For the last few years, I have taken the time to reach out to the people who’ve I’ve come to know as “Children of Christ’s Lost Soul.” Many times they are college educated gripped by Satan’s evil substance of abuse in some chemical or drink seeking not to hurt anyone but to survive the elements of life needing warm clothes from the cold, prayer and conversation and a warm meal to soothe their broken heart. Yesterday my wife and I took our Homeless Ministry “Trunk of Comfort” and went specifically to a group of people who I’ve noticed close to our home. We met several people who live together in a makeshift camp craving conversation, acceptance and love.
As we arrived, they naturally thought we were there to give them money but I called out to them to come over and pick out some fresh clean clothes and shoes I carry around to help these beautiful Christ-like people. My wife gave some clean clothes and costume jewelry to a woman named Edith or “Edi” for short as I sized up Willy, J.B. and Billy with some new pants, shirts and shoes.
Billy and J.B. wore a smile of appreciation I’ll never forget and when I handed Billy a close friend’s jacket he donated, I thought he was going to cry. We ended our visit by holding hands with “Edi” as we asked her to pray in any way she new how. Her prayer was “beautiful” my wife commented as we honked and drove away. We decided to go get them two pizzas arriving a short time later with “Edi” adorned in her new costume jewelry wearing a smile of Christ no one could deny. Her “War Cry” to the LORD was genuine with a radiance of Christ’s love ion her face. Amen.
We pray by God, His Son and His Spirit to live the War Cry of Truth by the radiance of our faces. We pray for the Team and Candidates of the Emmaus Retreat at St. Louis as they begin their journey to live for His Truth. May my words give them comfort and direction for Your glory LORD. We pray for Pam Bishop. We pray for LIFE FM. I pray for my wife, children, family, and friends. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
Over the Sabbath as written in His Tablet- Mark 2:23-28
The Sabbath led them to a field of grain
Disciples wanted to ease their hunger pain
Picking the heads to eat as comfort to gain
The Pharisees questioned why in disdain
It is unlawful to eat on the Sabbath
Jesus said did not David enjoy this habit
Of giving the bread only for the priests
Sharing the bread as lawful treats
The Sabbath was made for man
Not man for the Sabbath
The Son of Man is LORD
Over the Sabbath as written in His Tablet
