ometimes things need to be defined in order to bring them into sharper
focus. This month I am focusing on remission. Remission is similar to
mercy and forgiveness, but remission is used "after the fact." That is
to say, that a breach or sin, was indeed committed, there was no
repentance and therefore no mercy nor forgiveness given, and the
"sinner" was judged, found guilty and sentenced for his or her breach
Sometime after this, the "sinner" hears of the offer of remission,
repents and enters into a new good faith agreement by accepting the
offer. As a result, the "sinner" goes back before the judge who remits
the guilt and the sentence, expunges every record of the breach and,
most importantly, restores the person's reputation to a "clean slate"
so to speak.
If the breach was between the person and God, then remission has the
added benefits of the person being adopted into the family of God and
thereby allowing the person, as a child of God, to operate from this
time forward under the flawless reputation, good credit or
righteousness of the God family name. This has the effect of making the
person's reputation or righteousness the reputation or righteousness of

California we see and feel the cooler weather coming in. Fall or Autumn

Thanksgiving and maybe a small reason is November is my favourite
month, because it is my birth month!
Change is a fact of life. How dull life would be if it were the same everyday - 365 days a year.
Some changes come naturally and are expected. But others may appear
gradually and a few come so speedily and unexpectedly that it may throw
us for a loop. That's the intended purpose - to hit us so hard that we
back off or do nothing or react in a wrong way.
The Bible says that in this world we may have many troubles - BUT God WILL get us out of them.
Yes, but Marcia, you don't know what I'm going through. Sometimes it seems like one thing after another!
Well, maybe it's time to examine how you and I are handling these troubles or changes in our life.
The first thing to examine is our thoughts. Bombarding our mind is
"This ALWAYS happens to me." "Oh no, Aunt so and so is coming and we
NEVER get along." "Flu season is upon us." "I just can't seem to get
out of this worrying." (HINT: Worrying turns into fear!)
We must get a grip on our thought life! We MUST take control of our
thoughts - or else they will take control of us. This is a true
statement and the devil knows it too.
One of his names is Diablios and it means that he keeps bombarding you
and I with the same thoughts over and over, and if we ALLOW ourselves
to dwell on them AND take them in - even a little bit_ then he pushes
even harder, until the thoughts drop into our hearts and we speak them
out of our mouth - To MAKE THEM SO! We need to learn NOT to take the
bait, NOT to walk into the snare.
Jesus said that He came to give us an abundant life, not a so-so life! (John 10:10)
Change - one day we're feeling well and then - BAM! - were hit with
something BIG or small. Well, we have a good faith promise of healing,
of prosperity, of well being, of favor and you can go on and on. Search
the Bible for the good faith promises of God for yourself.
Jesus paid - in full - for our healing. It does NOT matter what NAME
the medical field places on that intruder that hits our body - the
situation MUST CHANGE! For by the stripes of Jesus we WERE healed. (I
Peter 2:24) No weapon formed against us shall prosper.
Change - we see it all the time in the world. The economy hasn't been
the greatest in the last few years - stop blaming one politician or the
government or anything else - we may live in the world - but we don't
have to be part of it.
God's plan - given to us in good faith - is to receive and live life by the Kingdom of God laws.
Give and it SHALL be given unto you, good measure, pressed down and
shaken together shall men give unto your bosom. (Into your possession).
Give at least 10% back to God from what we bring in to spread the good
news of Jesus Christ around the world. In Malachi 3, Jesus gives us
PERMISSION to PROVE Him in this! So when we sign our name, in good
faith, to this good faith promise of God then we will prosper, even in
a failing economy.
There are many different changes that may be thrown at us during the
course of our lives: family matters, fear (which begins with worry),
depression, sickness and the list goes on and on. Shake it off, don't
take it in. Attract the enemy with our faith or good faith. This works
by our action.
Take hold of God's Word - His good faith promise to you and I - for He
will never back off His Word - the good news is, He WON'T lie to us! He
won't even tease us.
Joshua 1:8 tells us to read the Word, so we may observe to do it, for therein lies the blessing and brings success.
So, when some change, in the
form of anything: spiritual, mental, physical or material tries to take
hold of us and our family, then you and I must fight back - with all we
have: the armor of God, the Word of God, our words, our praises, our
thanksgiving, and then stand on the good faith Word of God. Then change
will come - it MUST - for Jesus says we have the victory, each and
every time, in Him! TGM
