My Brothers and Sisters, may the peace of the lord our God the Father, the grace of His only Son Christ Jesus and the blessings of the Holy Ghost be with you all now and remain with you forever, Amen.

It is difficult for me right now, as I write this missive, to know exactly where to begin and how to explain what God has written on my heart.

Let me start by returning to a time about three years ago, in March 2015, a time when I was just beginning to wrestle with my demons, as I answered the call of the Lord our Father God Yaweh, to stand under His banner and become a Priest and servant to the word of God, to hand over my life to the Son and Saviour Christ Jesus and become His instrument of sharing the word and purpose of God the Father through the Son Jesus Christ and the spirit of truth also known as the helper, even the Holy Spirit.

The First Christians.

The reason this is difficult for me, is not that I do not possess the vocabulary to have you understand where I am in my faith today, it is more that I have only recently received by God’s communication, the last instalment of God’s revelation to me and frankly, it has not yet completely sunk in, yet somehow, it is like I have known everything from the first moment when God spoke my name, really, from the very beginning. The first part came, as I have said, almost three years ago and as always seems to be the case with God, at a time when I least expected it and had my mind centred on other issues and business.

It is made even more difficult, since as many of you will know, I have counted myself a Christian since my very early Childhood and cannot remember far enough back in time, when I did not honour our Lord Jesus and acknowledge Him as my Saviour God on a daily basis. The difference between then and now is, then, and later in my early youth and into my twenties and thirties, I paid my faith and devotion little but lip service and thought it was good enough, now, I bend my knee every day to honour the lord my God and know it will never be good enough. It will not be good enough, not until that final day, when we all who have been His good and faithful servants, shall be transformed by the beautiful grace of the lord our God, through His Son Jesus Christ, even the only begotten Son of God the Almighty.

On that Spring morning three years ago, as I walked around a deserted public park in Southern Spain, I heard a voice call me by my own name and instinctively knew whom it was that had called me.  For a moment I said nothing and continued to walk, then the voice calling my name sounded a second time. It was then that I recalled the time I had read of many times in Scripture, a time when God had called out to Abraham the lord’s servant and  had answered in a most memorable way. “Here I am lord,” I said aloud and I turned around. I did not expect to see anything or anyone, I simply turned in the direction from which the voice had come. “Here I am lord,” I said, a second time. The voice of the Lord washed over me like spring water, warm, pure and refreshing, it was almost like God wasn’t really speaking, more like placing the words one by one in my ears, my heart and my mind all at the same time. God’s spoken message was over in just a few seconds and yet he had told me so much, the voice was gone as quickly as it had come and yet, I could still hear it like an echo bouncing around a silent canyon at Sun down. God had spoken to me and told me what he now expected me to do.

I have obeyed the Lord in all these things, I have become a Priest, focusing my whole life and my very being, on the worship and service to God. As God commanded, I have established The Church of Jerusalem and the Christian Nation as an online non denominational Church, which welcomes all people, especially sinners like me. I have travelled to Israel several times to gather support from Christian congregations there, because it is in Israel, as God has commanded, we shall lay the foundations of this Church. Those congregations will help us to establish the Church headquarters and Bible Seminary of the CJCN. Now, it is time to start the gathering of the faithful brethren, the last part of God’s plan, which I feel I have always known about and have even spoken of with some of my dearest brothers and sisters. It is time now to bring all peoples together under the CJCN banner of God and establish true Christianity, without denominations and without man made doctrine and tradition. There is to be no Catholic, no Lutheran, no Baptist, no Jehova’s witnes, no Muslim, no Hindu no Presbytarian, no Calvinist, no Mormon, no Sikh, no Mothodist, there is to be only Christians, just as it was after our saviour ascended into heaven and the Disciple Peter, along with the other followers and Apostles of Christ, founded the first Christian Church. There is to be no division, there is to be only unity in Christ Jesus, as together and as one Church, we serve the one true living God and preach His word to all creatures across the broad earth.

Most people of the CJCN will remain in their own countries, their own towns and cities and their own homes, but there are those who must now answer the call of God, to come together in Israel where our Church and Seminary are to be planted. It is time to begin the pilgrimage home and there to serve the living God as he has commanded.

It is now, with all of this in mind, that I must call forward those of you whom God has called and has written this Biblical mission on your hearts as it is inscribed upon mine own. It is now that all who will come to Israel to build and plant this Church, must come forward and stand with the lord to fulfill his command to renew and rebuild the Christian Nation from the ruins of centuries of denominational man made doctrine, tradition and false Biblical Preaching, which has sorely devided God’s Children and separated them from the love of God as they have loved the world more than the great creator.

Are YOU called to God’s service in Israel and to the cause of the Christ led mission to restore true Christianity in its homeland??? You will know it if you are and those of you who have been chosen by God to come to the aid of this mission, will now have to make some very difficult decisions. Jesus did not bring peace to Mankind, but a sword and division, we who are chosen to serve God on this mission already know, our sacrifice must be the same as the sacrifice of our lord Jesus, we now must take up our own individual cross and bear it to the final destination. That destination is the truth in Christ Jesus and the home of genuine christ led Daily devotion to the greater purpose of God.

Do you feel the pull of the Holy Spirit, do you feel God pulling you to the Holy Land and the Israel mission???

If you do, contact me by adding your name and what skills you can provide, at the bottom of this post with  means of contact such as messenger, hangouts or e mail.

Thank you, God bless you and lead you and may your heart be filled with joy in the helper, even the Holy Ghost, the very spirit of God. Amen.

A prayer for the mission.

Evening Hymn.

The Evening Psalm.

Psalm 92. King James Version (KJV)

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:

To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,

Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.

For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

But thou, Lord, art most high for evermore.

507ee83bb092971fcd63254cea272533--jewish-menorah-jewish-quotes.jpg

For, lo, thine enemies, O Lord, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.

12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13 Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

15 To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Dear God, we thank you tonight for the good day and for the special way you take care of us all the time. Thank you for the fun times outside and the quiet times inside, and for helping us learn new things every day.

Thank you for creating us special, exactly the way you wanted. Thank you for protecting us throughout the day. Forgive us for the wrong things we do. Thank you for loving us even when we disobey or try to do things our way. Help us to always choose your way, God, because it’s always best. We pray for all the people who don’t know you, and that they will come to understand your love for them, too.

Bless our family and thank you for good times together and apart. Bless our friends and those we love, including our grandparents, our aunts and uncles and cousins. Thank you for our home and a place to sleep and good food to eat. Help us rest well, give us peaceful dreams, and send your angels around our home to protect us throughout the night.

Good Sabbath brothers and sisters, Shabbat Shalom.

Exodus 20 King James Version (KJV)

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

A Psalm to Welcome Shabbat.

Psalm 76. King James Version (KJV)

In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.

In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.

Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.

The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.

At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?

Image result for shabbat shalom pictures

Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,

When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.

10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

11 Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.

12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

Morning Hymn.

Bible Reading.

Genesis 2. King James Version (KJV)

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

image1824709368.jpg

13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Verse of the Day.

Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. Isaiah 65:24, NIV.

Daily Prayer.

Our great God, still hidden and yet so evident and near, we thank you that you are at work in us before we think of asking. We thank you that you hold us by the hand and lead us before we are aware of it. Stay with us in this way and awaken our hearts at the right moment, that we are not surprised by the painful things we experience but can be prepared at all times to watch and pray, trusting that we are not forsaken in the constant strife on this earth. Grant us hope, O God, that the time is coming when all people will hear the proclamation, “See, a new heaven and a new earth, because you have learned to see God’s honor in everything.” In Jesus we pray. Amen.

The CJCN Daily Lesson.

Genesis 2:3.

(3) Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

  Exodus 20:8.

(8) “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

“Sanctified” in Genesis 2:3 and “holy” in Exodus 20:8 are the same word in Hebrew though in different tenses. In Genesis 2, God makes the seventh day holy; in Exodus 20, He commands us to keep holy what He has already made holy. A holy God is required to make holy time, and He made no time holy other than His Sabbaths. God can make man holy, but man cannot confer holiness to the degree God does. Any other day of worship has a mere manmade holiness and is not holy as God’s Sabbaths are holy. The Sabbath, then, is worthy of respect, deference, even devotion not given to other periods of time. It is set apart for sacred use because it derives from God.

The underlying implication of the usage of “holy” is difference. The verbal root literally means “to cut,” “to cut out,” “to separate from,” or it can imply “to make a cut above,” thus “to make special.” A holy thing is an object that is different from that to which it is compared. In this case, the other six days are common and are given to the use and pursuit of the common, ordinary activities of life. Practically, it means that when the Sabbath arrives, we should stop doing and avoid the mundane things that make or promote turning the Sabbath into an ordinary day.

Exodus 3:1-5 provides a clear illustration of what the word “holy” implies:

Now Moses . . . came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”

The principle shown here is what makes the Sabbath holy, different. Because God was present, Moses had to treat the ground differently, with a respect or a deference that he would not give to ordinary ground. For the called of God, this difference, this holiness, is a spiritual thing; it is not physically discerned.

Notice that, even though Moses was aware that there was something unusual about what He was observing, God had to tell him that he stood on holy ground. It is a spiritual state that cannot be physically discerned. As for the Sabbath, God puts His presence into the day for the sake of His people and His spiritual creation.

Consider the scenario Amos 3:3 presents: “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” If we want to be in God’s presence in this special way and in agreement with Him, no other day will do. God has an appointment with us to meet with Him on a specific day, on Sabbath time. It is time, different from other time, just as an appointment time with a dentist is different from other time in one’s life, as well as from another person’s scheduled time.

Blessing.

Have a great day Brothers and Sisters of the CJCN, The Lord bless you and keep you;

The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. Amen.
