1Jo 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Repentance prayer.

Father God, forgive my sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down
to die on the cross and for shedding his blood for me. Three days
later you resurrected him. I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Isaiah 45:14-25.

Isaiah 45.14-25
The Lord Alone Can Save

My people, I, the Lord, promise that the riches of Egypt and the
treasures of Ethiopia will belong to you. You will force into slavery
those tall people of Seba. They will bow down and say, "The only true
God is with you; there are no other gods." People of Israel, your God
is a mystery, though he alone can save. Anyone who makes idols will be
confused and terribly disgraced. But Israel, I, the Lord, will always
keep you safe and free from shame.

Everyone Is Invited

The Lord alone is God! He created the heavens and made a world where
people can live, instead of creating an empty desert. The Lord alone
is God; there are no others. The Lord did not speak in a dark secret
place or command Jacob's descendants to search for him in vain. The
Lord speaks the truth, and this is what he says to every survivor from
every nation: "Gather around me! Learn how senseless it is to worship
wooden idols or pray to helpless gods. "Why don't you get together and
meet me in court? Didn't I tell you long ago what would happen? I am
the only God! There are no others. I bring about justice, and have the
power to save. "I invite the whole world to turn to me and be saved. I
alone am God! No others are real. I have made a solemn promise, one
that won't be broken: Everyone will bow down and worship me. They will
admit that I alone can bring about justice. Everyone who is angry with
me will be terribly ashamed and will turn to me. I, the Lord, will
give victory and great honor to the people of Israel."

God bless you.

Matthew 22:1-14.

Matthew 22.1-14
The Great Banquet

Once again Jesus used stories to teach the people: The kingdom of
heaven is like what happened when a king gave a wedding banquet for
his son. The king sent some servants to tell the invited guests to
come to the banquet, but the guests refused. He sent other servants
to say to the guests, "The banquet is ready! My cattle and prize
calves have all been prepared. Everything is ready. Come to the
banquet!" But the guests did not pay any attention. Some of them left
for their farms, and some went to their places of business. Others
grabbed the servants, then beat them up and killed them. This made the
king so furious that he sent an army to kill those murderers and burn
down their city. Then he said to the servants, "It is time for the
wedding banquet, and the invited guests don't deserve to come. Go out
to the street corners and tell everyone you meet to come to the
banquet." They went out on the streets and brought in everyone they
could find, good and bad alike. And the banquet room was filled with
guests. When the king went in to meet the guests, he found that one of
them wasn't wearing the right kind of clothes for the wedding. The
king asked, "Friend, why didn't you wear proper clothes for the
wedding?" But the guest had no excuse. So the king gave orders for
that person to be tied hand and foot and to be thrown outside into the
dark. That's where people will cry and grit their teeth in pain. Many
are invited, but only a few are chosen."

God bless you.

Revelation 14:14-16.


2 Corinthians 9:1-15.

2 Corinthians 9.1-15
The Money for God's People

I don't need to write you about the money you plan to give for God's
people. I know how eager you are to give. And I have proudly told the
Lord's followers in Macedonia that you people in Achaia have been
ready for a whole year. Now your desire to give has made them want to
give. That's why I am sending Titus and the two others to you. I want
you to be ready, just as I promised. This will prove that we were not
wrong to brag about you. Some followers from Macedonia may come with
me, and I want them to find that you have the money ready. If you
don't, I would be embarrassed for trusting you to do this. But you
would be embarrassed even more. So I have decided to ask Titus and
the others to spend some time with you before I arrive. This way they
can arrange to collect the money you have promised. Then you will have
the chance to give because you want to, and not because you feel
forced to. Remember this saying, "A few seeds make a small harvest,
but a lot of seeds make a big harvest." Each of you must make up your
own mind about how much to give. But don't feel sorry that you must
give and don't feel that you are forced to give. God loves people who
love to give. God can bless you with everything you need, and you
will always have more than enough to do all kinds of good things for
others. The Scriptures say, "God freely gives his gifts to the poor,
and always does right." God gives seed to farmers and provides
everyone with food. He will increase what you have, so that you can
give even more to those in need. You will be blessed in every way,
and you will be able to keep on being generous. Then many people will
thank God when we deliver your gift. What you are doing is much more
than a service that supplies God's people with what they need. It is
something that will make many others thank God. The way in which you
have proved yourselves by this service will bring honor and praise to
God. You believed the message about Christ, and you obeyed it by
sharing generously with God's people and with everyone else. Now they
are praying for you and want to see you, because God used you to bless
them so very much. Thank God for his gift that is too wonderful for
words!"

Father God, forgive mu sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down
to die on the cross and for shedding his blood for me. Three days
later you resurrected him. I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ into
my heart as my Lord and savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God bless you.
