Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Veils that Cover
Veils that Cover
Our morning Bible Study at Open Door
Church, was led by Sister Helen, as she opened with Exodus 34:29-30regarding Moses coming down from the Mountain
with the two tables of stone.Moses had
been in God’s presence and his face shone so brightly that the people could not
look at him.He was obliged to put a
veil upon his face so he could speak to the people.
The lesson continued reading
from 2 Corinthians 3: 15-18 telling us that so often as we read the Bible,
there is a veil on our heart.However
when we turn to the Lord the veil is taken away and there is liberty.
2 Corinthians 4: 1-18 reveals
that the Gospel is hidden to those who are lost because the enemy has blinded
their minds to prevent them from following Jesus.
As Christians there are often
things hidden in our hearts, when we fail to handle the word of God
rightly.The light of the gospel will
illuminate hidden sins so they can be dealt with.Once enlightened, we are to renounce those
things that don’t please God.
The Word brings conviction
that leads to repentance.We are then to
follow the instructions give by God and begin to do those things that please
How is that
working out for you?
Saul whose name was later changed to Paul, was blinded by a great
light and a power that brought him to his knees.He
had been persecuting the Christians, but a voice spoke and asked him, “Why do
you persecute Me?”Saul could only say,
“Who are you Lord?”He was given
instructions and was gloriously converted and filled with the Holy Spirit.
As time went by he was the
one being persecuted and many times beaten and left for dead.All in all he rejoiced that he was found
worthy to suffer for Christ Jesus.
He knew that in time he would
be presented before our Father God and receive his crown.
In life we all have problems
and troubles, yet it is only a light affliction for the moment.
We are reminded to look not
at the things that are seen, but at things that are not seen, for the things
which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
One of these days, it will be our turn to be presented before our Father God.
