The Makings of The King Part 3

Good day I’m Vedric :0) I hope you all are great! Alright guys this is a three part series called The Makings of The King, please take the opportunity to read through them! Ws busy before God so if it seems I am so sorry but I promised thank you all so much for your patience! :0)

Self-Acceptance is realizing we are fearfully and wonderfully made by Christ Jesus!Psalm 139:1414 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;  your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Selflessness is the altruistic giving of ourselves to others, as Christ gave Himself to us. (Titus 2:14) Titus 2:14New International Version (NIV)14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

Sensitivity is exercising kindness and compassion so we can go beyond just reason and logic to perceive and respond to others. (Romans 12:15) 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

Servant Leadership is exercising real godly leadership as Christ did, by His taking a towel, influencing, equipping, and empowering people to accomplish God’s purpose and plan. (Luke 22:24-26) 24 A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

Sincerity is earnest honesty that is readily doing what is right, with pure and loving intention. (Joshua 24:14; 1 14 “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.

Success is not what the world says is achievement; it is to know and faithfully follow God’s Will and His Word. It is our obedience, not our numbers or measurements! (Matthew 25:21)21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Supportive is to come along side others, sharing our strength and courage in their afflictions and troubles. (Galatians 6:2)Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

Tactful is being considerate, delicate, and diplomatic with other’s feelings and ideas, doing, and saying the right thing. (Colossians 4:6)Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Teach is to share our insights and what we have learned with others, to disciple them. (Matt. 7:28; Matt. 28:19–20; John 7:16 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

Temperate is to have self-control so we do not lose control and give in to lust and extremes of society’s ills. (Titus 2:12)12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Tolerant is being forbearing and patient with others, even when they are different or weaker. (1 Thes. 5:14)14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

 

Understanding is the ability to reason and comprehend situations. (Psalms 119:34)34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

Virtue is holding onto the principles of moral excellence that calls us to a higher level where few people desire to go, but as a Christian, we must go! (Col. 3:12–17) 12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do,whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Zealous is maintaining our enthusiasm for our faith and call, not allowing our church or us to fall into a rut of meaningless rhetoric. (Luke 2:49; John 2:17; And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”
John 8:29) His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.”

Good Afternoon, Proverbs 8 Teaching! :0)

Good afternoon everyone I’m Vedric :0) I hope you all are great. This afternoon we deviate a little bit we briefly discussed wisdom yesterday and I promised you all i would incorporate it into the teaching for today, but when I looked at it I noticed it is very long and it deserves a section of it own! :0) Do you all know the bible say’s that wisdom is more precious than rubies!! because know her and having her “Wisdom” is the literal key to everything Good, holy and of The Lord

Proverbs 8 Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Commendation of Wisdom

Does not wisdom call,
And understanding lift up her voice?

On the top of the heights beside the way,
Where the paths meet, wisdom takes her stand;

Beside the gates, at the entrance to the city,
At the entrance of the doors, she cries out:

“To you, O men, I call,
And my voice is directed to the sons of men.

“O you naive or inexperienced [who are easily misled], understand prudence and seek astute common sense;
And, O you [closed-minded, self-confident] fools, understand wisdom [seek the insight and self-discipline that leads to godly living].

“Listen, for I will speak excellent and noble things;
And the opening of my lips will reveal right things.

“For my mouth will utter truth,
And wickedness is repulsive and loathsome to my lips.

“All the words of my mouth are in righteousness (upright, in right standing with God);
There is nothing contrary to truth or perverted (crooked) in them.

“They are all straightforward to him who understands [with an open and willing mind],
And right to those who find knowledge and live by it.
10 
“Take my instruction rather than [seeking] silver,
And take knowledge rather than choicest gold,
11 
“For wisdom is better than rubies;
And all desirable things cannot compare with her.

12 
“I, [godly] wisdom, reside with prudence [good judgment, moral courage and astute common sense],
And I find knowledge and discretion.
13 
“The [reverent] fear and worshipful awe of the Lord includes the hatred of evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way,
And the perverted mouth, I hate.
14 
“Counsel is mine and sound wisdom;
I am understanding, power and strength are mine.
15 
“By me kings reign
And rulers decide and decree justice.
16 
“By me princes rule, and nobles,
All who judge and govern rightly.
17 
“I love those who love me;
And those who seek me early and diligently will find me.
18 
“Riches and honor are with me,
Enduring wealth and righteousness (right standing with God).
19 
“My fruit is better than gold, even pure gold,
And my yield is better than choicest silver.
20 
“I, [Wisdom, continuously] walk in the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice,
21 
That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth and true riches,
And that I may fill their treasuries.

22 
“The Lord created and possessed me at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old [were accomplished].
23 
“From everlasting I was established and ordained,
From the beginning, before the earth existed, [I, godly wisdom, existed].
24 
“When there were no ocean depths I was born,
When there were no fountains and springs overflowing with water.
25 
“Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills, I was born;
26 
While He had not yet made the earth and the fields,
Or the first of the dust of the earth.
27 
“When He established the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there;
When He drew a circle upon the face of the deep,
28 
When He made firm the skies above,
When the fountains and springs of the deep became fixed andstrong,
29 
When He set for the sea its boundary
So that the waters would not transgress [the boundaries set by] His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth—
30 
Then I was beside Him, as a master craftsman;
And I was daily His delight;
Rejoicing before Him always,
31 
Rejoicing in the world, His inhabited earth,
And having my delight in the sons of men.

32 
“Now therefore, O sons, listen to me,
For blessed [happy, prosperous, to be admired] are they who keep my ways.
33 
“Heed (pay attention to) instruction and be wise,
And do not ignore or neglect it.
34 
“Blessed [happy, prosperous, to be admired] is the man who listens to me,
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at my doorposts.
35 
“For whoever finds me (Wisdom) finds life
And obtains favor and grace from the Lord.
36 
“But he who fails to find me or sins against me injures himself;
All those who hate me love and court death.”

The Makings of The King Part 2, Good Afternoon!! :0)

Good afternoon everyone I’m Vedric :0) I hope you all are great! I hope you all have been having a great day! :0) Alright guys we are on the the second part of the series the making of the King You all are doing great so proud of you!

Contentment is the attitude of accepting whatever God provides for us, and being happy with it. It does not seek what we do not need for gratification, and does not find happiness in the shallow things of life. (Rom. 9:19–21; 19 You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” 20 But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?”21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lumpone vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?

 

Purity & Holiness is being set apart for God’s use, which is holiness in action. It does not allow us to be contaminated nor interfere with others in our growth and relationship in Christ.  Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Confidence helps us rely on the Lord for all things in our life. It will enable us to push forward in the direction that we are called because He is governing. It makes us realize we are not responsible for the results–only the obedience. (Philippians 4:13) 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Encouragement will lift, support, and help others up through difficult circumstances, all from God’s perspective.  Thes. 5:11 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Availability is being willing to adjust our own schedule, agenda, and plans to fit the right desires of God and others. It makes personal priorities secondary to the needs of God and others. It is to reflect God’s priorities so we are always available to Him and others when we are serving.  Acts 16:10 10 And when Paul[a] had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

Attentiveness will recognize the value of other people by giving them listening ears, respect, courtesy, and total concentration. This means paying attention to others, not just listening to our own needs and desires, and also giving genuine contemplation to God’s Word. (Hebrews 2:1) Warning Against Neglecting Salvation Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.

Wisdom truly desires the knowledge of God’s Word and the proper application to our life. This will enable us to make good judgments and decisions. Psalm 119:97–98  97 Oh how I love your law!It is my meditation all the day.98 Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me.

Compassion will feel the pain and plight of others. It will enable us to convey a deep feeling of love and concern that moves us to meet their distresses, struggles, and needs. Isa. 40:11 11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms;he will carry them in his bosom,and gently lead those that are with young.

Enthusiasm will enable us to overcome disappointments and setbacks, so we can be positive, optimistic, and keep up our interest, attitude, and zeal, even when things are harsh. Matt. 5:16 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[a] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Initiative will take the front position to recognize and do what needs to be done before being asked to do it. Philippians 4:13–15 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.14 Yet it was kind of you to share[a] my trouble. 15 And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only.

Diligence allows us to operate with our best for His highest with excitement and passion in order to complete our work and call from the Lord. Colossians 3:23) 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,

Thoughtfulness considers and gives attention and care to others and their feelings first. (Philippians 2:4) Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Optimism will think the best of and be positive with people and all situations, even if later proven wrong. ; John 16:33 33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Obedience is submitting to do what God requires of us. It is also recognizing the authority and direction from others, such as the pastor and church, so we can create winning situations.  Prov. 19:16  16 Whoever keeps the commandment keeps his life; he who despises his ways will die.

Reverence is recognizing and respecting people, not just because of their position and authority, but as brothers and sisters in the Lord, regardless of their personality, knowing He loves them too! (1 Peter 2:13–14)13 Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution,[a] whether it be to the emperor[b] as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.

Good Moring! :0) I Love my penpals

Very nice to meet you Juan you are soooo sweet thank you I think you are beautiful too before Jesus I am not just saying that I mean that!💜 and YES I saw your Instagram very beautiful I love your dark brown hair lol but no all of you looks good! 😊💯 You were asking did I notice what happened in the same year my first business stopped I started being really, really noticed! You said it may have seemed like everything was falling a part but it was God setting your feet on right direction for your life it was always meant to be!  How else can you explain that?  Don’t look at what you went through as a bad thing look at it as God taking you off the wrong road into the right direction! If you had stayed in that business there is no way you would have gotten everything God meant for you, not even close!  Look at  God doing that just to get all your many haters to give them a front row seat to the table he has prepared for you, I really believe that. People are quick to criticize a redirection because they don’t see the full picture just a couple of pieces but if they saw the entire result they would pass out! I truly believe you are heading in the right direction for your life now. If I were you I would pinch myself thinking this is a dream because all of this is no accident, how can anyone explain this away? No one can! I know you are single and don’t want to date but If you ever need a date for one of those award shows remember me, I asked you first! Us together Wow, Now that would be a show! To God I asked you first!…… Thank you Juan are very sweet, you know what to be perfectly honest with you it took me a while to notice that just when one area seemed to have went dark my baby my first business I ran for over 8 years no loans got a house and all from that one business all those great things with it abruptly in late July close to August 2014 it suddenly all stopped on the other side I was getting before Jesus national exposure which started getting really, really heavy in 2014 in June to be honest in Feburary of that year it started catching fire all these things in 2014 all at one BEFOE JESUS I DID NOT NOTICE THAT!  My mind was not on the attention When all that was happening the attention,  the strangers took notice as well I don’t even know their names to this day! Before Jesus and the hatred through all of that my heart was on my business! Honestly! I can see that now yes and that light is intensifying by God before God not because of me, I’m not better than anyone else that’s Gid’s favor and purpose My mind was on the business I started at 24 I am serious business that worked well for almost 9 years then it suddenly it stopped before God on the other side of that the attention went off the charts for someone who was never known and not trying to be seen you are right that is no confidence no way! before Jesus no I did not notice at the time I do now though lol as of this morning!💜💙💚💛💖Before Jesus I never ever noticed that but it’s undeniable when I look at it I did not before I would be lying if I said I did you are right Juan thank you!

Owe no man anything, but to love one another, for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

 

Love will enable us to appreciate our brothers and sisters in the Lord, and, of course, our family, and others around us. Love is taking the initiative to build up and meet the needs of others without expecting anything in return. (John 13:1; John 15:13; 1 Corinthians 13:3)

Joy will allow us to enjoy His creation, others, and our circumstances with an expression of delight and real, authentic happiness from and with harmony with God and others. (Proverbs 15:13; John 15:11; John 17:13)

Peace is surrendering and yielding to the Lord’s control, for He is our ultimate peace! It is allowing tranquility to be our tone and to control This will be fueled by our harmonious relationship with God so we can hand over control of our heart, will, and mind to Him. Once we make real peace with God, we will be able to make and maintain peace with others. (Matthew 5:9; Colossians 3:15; Philippians 4:7)

Patience is showing tolerance and fortitude to others, and even accepting difficult situations from them and God without making demands and conditions. (Matthew 27:14; Romans 12:12;James 1:3,12)

Kindness is practicing benevolence and a loving attitude towards others. (Ephesians 4:32)

Goodness displays integrity, honesty, and compassion to others, and allows us to do the right thing. (Matthew 19:16)

Faithfulness is the “gluing” fruit that will preserve our faith and the other characters of the Spirit as well as identify God’s Will so we can be dependable and trusting to God and others. (Matthew 17:19; Matthew 25:21; 1 Cor. 12:9; Hebrews 11:1; 1 Thes 5:24)

Gentleness is the character that will show calmness, personal care, and tenderness in meeting the needs of others. (Isa. 40:11; Philippians 4:5; 2 Timothy 2:24; 1 Thes 2:7)

Self-Control will allow us to have discipline, and restraint with obedience to God and others. (1 Thes 5: 22)

Forgiving is the realization of how much we have been forgiven by Christ. This enables us to forgive the insignificant things that are done to us. It involves not being resentful to others, and ignoring the wrongs that we have received so we can heal relationships by expressing Christ’s love. (Luke 23:34; Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13)

Humility minimizes arrogance and removes pride. It is understanding our fallen nature and tendency to think we are better than we are, and our striving to lift up ourselves above others and God. It is admitting that others, and more importantly God is responsible for our achievements. Humbleness will enable us to be a teachable person who is willing to have the attitude of submission and servant-hood, one who confesses sin and remembers how Christ served us! (Luke 22:27; Philippians 2:8; 1 Peter 5:3–5)

Fairness sees a situation from the viewpoint of each person involved and not just ours. It seeks the best, just, equable solution, even if it hurts us. (Matthew 7:12)

Courage realizes that God has given us the strength to face any situation, trial, or peril. It is the ability to react, knowing that God is in control, that He who is in me is greater than he who is against me. (Deuteronomy 31:6; 1 John 4:4)

Friendship is the companionship and closeness we are to have with one another. It is the commitment to help form the character in others. This is not to be feared but embraced, even when it hurts! (Proverbs 27:17)

Honesty & Truthfulness mean being straight and honest with others and doing what is right. This trait will allow us to earn trust by being accurate with facts and situations. (2 Cor. 8:21;Ephesians 4:25)

Dependable is being constantly reliable and trustworthy. It will allow us to continue in our commitments even if it means personal sacrifice. (1 Corinthians 4:2; Colossians 1:10)

Gratitude is an attitude of being thankful, even when we do not see what we have. This is an aspect of worship, expressing to God and others how they have benefited our lives by showing their support and benevolence. (1 Corinthians 4:7; 1 Thes. 5: 18)

Responsibility is to know and do what God and others expect. (Romans 14:12)
