Wig’s Word of God Today 11-18-2011
It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.’ Luke 19:46
As Jesus entered Jerusalem, He fulfilled the prophesy of Malachi in cleaning up the Temple area before teaching the children of Israel the Truth of God the Father sharing the covenant of love. Malachi 3:1-3 states: “Now I am sending my messenger—He will prepare the way before me; And the LORD whom you seek will come suddenly to His Temple; The messenger of the Covenant whom you desire— see, He is coming! says the LORD of hosts. But who can endure the day of His coming? Who can stand firm when He appears? For He will be like a refiner’s fire, like fullers’ lye. He will sit refining and purifying silver, and He will purify the Levites, Refining them like gold or silver, that they may bring offerings to the LORD in righteousness.”
The LORD is telling us to come before Him clean to worship Him with a pure heart able to open your soul to find His Truth there to live by. I think many of us are in need of a good spiritual cleaning to give ourselves every opportunity to serve God instead of the everyday things of life we are consumed with living. The LORD is asking us to live in the surrender of faith, charity and love to be the eyes and hands of His Son’s Gospel. What’s amazing about our Redeemer is He came to Jerusalem knowing He would face death as He sat amongst them teaching the Way of the LORD. The same people whom He taught and prayed with would soon line the streets and spit in His face and lash out at Him as He carried the Cross of Redemption to die and rise again. What’s consuming you today that prohibits an absolute surrender to God’s Son of Truth? Is your love of loving Him complete in faith, charity and love? Are you spitting in His Christ’s face?
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today to keep a clean heart as we worship You to find peace in our lives. We pray we are seeking Your Truth in very aspect of our lives to live in faith, charity and love. We pray for the children of the world and the people who teach them Your love. We pray for my Kairos Prison Ministry Team as they enter the prison today to share God’s Truth. We pray LORD for the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can, and wisdom to know the difference. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
My House is a House of Prayer to Know God’s Truth to Make-
He entered the town knowing He would die
He drove out the demons who dirtied His eye
No more selling and trading in Satan’s ugly lies
My House is a House of Prayer to find peace as you cry
He taught and He prayed with people of hate
Knowing one day soon they’d kill Him His fate
The chief priests and scribes looked to set that date
Hanging on His Words the people tried to relate
My House is a House of Prayer to Know God’s Truth to Make
