Revelation 12:11 – “11They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”
SAINTS I would like to take pause for a second and call attention to the fact that God is moving in this day and age and utilizing many SAINTS and means (Daniel 12:3-4) by which the Gospel is going forth. WE read in his word that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).
Thanking God for the 7409 people that the GIVEYOURWITNESS ministry has reached with the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ over the last week alone. WE read within God’s word (John 21:17) that if WE love the Lord that WE must feed his sheep… Thank you to the writers past, present and future (Kristine & Harold Murphy, Billy Ray Parrish, Jonelle Maxwell, Joshua Wilson & Rizen Swain) who have poured out and will continue to pour out their hearts and demonstrate obedience to the calling that the Lord has placed within them.
Thank you to my wife Katja Bush for designing the logo and all that she has done to assist over the years concerning bringing this vision to fruition, (Just waking up to her pretty face lol), to the Glory of God the Father in Jesus Christ OUR Lord and Savior and last but most certainly not least, thank you Lord for being Faithful to your Servants even though at times WE are not faithful to you…👆🙏💪
Little becomes much when placed in the Master’s hands” (Luke 9:10-17) 👆🙏💪
God’s blessings to each and every one of US in the mighty name of Jesus Christ OUR Lord and Savior; the Lord is NOT done with His SAINTS, Amen!!!! PREACH!!!👆🙏💪
Daniel 12:3-4 3Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”
Romans 10:17 – “So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message that is heard is what Christ spoke. So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. So then faith comes by hearing, and the ear to hear by the word of God. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
John 21:17 – “The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”
Luke 9:10-17 “10When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida, 11but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. 12Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, “Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here.” 13He replied, “You give them something to eat.” They answered, “We have only five loaves of bread and two fish-unless we go and buy food for all this crowd.” 14(About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” 15The disciples did so, and everyone sat down. 16Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people. 17They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.”
Noticed a reoccurring theme concerning God’s word and the number 17 here SAINTS (Romans 10:17, John 21:17 & Luke 9:10-17); God Speaks… PREACH!!! 👆🙏💪
“In the Bible the number 17 symbolizes “overcoming the enemy” and “complete victory.”. God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when he began to flood the earth through rain on the 17th of the second Hebrew month.”
Numbers 17 also provides a very interesting word from the Lord….
Numbers 17 – “The Budding of Aaron’s Staff
1[The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the Israelites and get twelve staffs from them, one from the leader of each of their ancestral tribes. Write the name of each man on his staff. 3 On the staff of Levi write Aaron’s name, for there must be one staff for the head of each ancestral tribe. 4 Place them in the tent of meeting in front of the ark of the covenant law, where I meet with you. 5 The staff belonging to the man I choose will sprout, and I will rid myself of this constant grumbling against you by the Israelites.”
6 So Moses spoke to the Israelites, and their leaders gave him twelve staffs, one for the leader of each of their ancestral tribes, and Aaron’s staff was among them. 7 Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the tent of the covenant law.
8 The next day Moses entered the tent and saw that Aaron’s staff, which represented the tribe of Levi, had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds. 9 Then Moses brought out all the staffs from the Lord’s presence to all the Israelites. They looked at them, and each of the leaders took his own staff.
10 The Lord said to Moses, “Put back Aaron’s staff in front of the ark of the covenant law, to be kept as a sign to the rebellious. This will put an end to their grumbling against me, so that they will not die.” 11 Moses did just as the Lord commanded him.
12 The Israelites said to Moses, “We will die! We are lost, we are all lost! 13 Anyone who even comes near the tabernacle of the Lord will die. Are we all going to die?””
Some additional information from God’s word concerning the significance of the number 17:
The Number 17
The number 17 is associated with victory, the restoration of all things, spiritual perfection, and perfect order. The first time the number occurs in the bible is significant.
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat.
Every bible student should be aware that God is very into numbers. And God chose to destroy the earth on the 17th day of the 2nd month. Then God chose to rest the ark on the 17th day of the 7th month.
On the 17th
God prevailed over the sinners of the earth
The earth was restored
God returned the earth to perfection
Jesus resurrected on the 17th”
Jesus rose from the grave on the 17th day of the month. We know this because Passover is on the 14th day of the 1st month on the Hebrew calendar.
On the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover of the LORD.
BLESSINGS IN HIM
