Ladies and Gentlemen, hear the Word of The LORD for TODAY!

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God (Yahweh), believe also in Me (Yeshua).

In My Father’s house are many mansions (dwelling places); if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I AM, there you may be also.

And where I go you know, and the way you know.

Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?  Jesus said to him,

I AM The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Abide in Me!

John 14:1-7


Jesus is the Lord of Heaven, the Lord of the Universe and the Lord of the Church; but most of all, He should be your personal Lord. Just as a human can be the lord of a manor because he owns the house and directs its activities, so Jesus should be the Lord of your body—His Temple—because He provides for your needs and directs your activities. Jesus wants to be more than a guest in your home; He wants the title deed so that you belong to Him.

If Jesus is your Lord, He should rest in the living room of your life. Jesus should feel comfortable in the recreation room, where you play and entertain yourself. Jesus should be invited into your dining room, where you eat and satisfy your appetite. He won’t be happy if you eat the garbage of this world. Would Jesus rest comfortably in the bedroom of your life? Do you have a besetting sin hidden in the basement? When you invite Jesus into your home, He doesn’t enter as a decoration or as a celebrity to give your home status. He doesn’t come as a vacation guest or as a friend who pops in on the weekends. Jesus comes to be the Lord of your house, your dwelling place.

Jesus, enter my life as You might enter a home. Make my heart Your Home. Live in my body, that You have created for me.

Jesus, I give every room in my house to You. Enter each room, cleanse it, and make it Your own. I make You Lord of my Life.

Amen and Amen!
