GOD Says, "I Will Pour Out My Spirit On ALL FLESH"

Joel 2:28, GOD says, "I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh." You can refer back to my blog on November 26, 2017 paragraph 7 that shares about "all flesh" and the different kinds of flesh, post: "Animals Do Have Souls an Spirits."

Jeremiah 32:27 above again shares He is the creator of "all flesh" that being of mankind and of the animal kingdom.

Almighty Father GOD has given Christ Jesus the power over all creation, all flesh, even unto eternal life.

Not only Old Testament Scripture shares of mankind accepting His salvation, but also in the New Testament in Acts 2:17, shares again of His Spirit being poured out on all flesh. Only mankind is required to repent of his sins. The animal kingdom was subjected to this fallen world because of the fall of man choosing to sin.
We see in Romans 8:21, "The creatures (animal kingdom) themselves will BE LIBERATED FROM DEATH AND DECAY and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of GOD!" They (animal kingdom) are not subject to eternal damnation as is mankind who reject so great a salvation in Jesus Christ.

All flesh, mankind and the animal kingdom will see the glory of our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD! Saved mankind will see it at the Judgment Seat of Christ (for believers) and the Lost at the Great White Throne Judgment. The Animal Kingdom will be brought unto saved mankind as it was mentioned in the previous Romans 8:21. What glory will be seen in the New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem! We saved of Christ Jesus will be involved with it for eternity. Those Lost will perceive it from the Lake of Fire in their punishment for all eternity. (Revelation 20:11-14) Know Christ Jesus today and the Salvation He has for you. Repent of your sins and ask Him to come into your heart and His Holy Spirit will confirm your salvation in Him! Know the truth of eternal life in Christ Jesus!

The Great Blessing of Redemption in Christ Jesus

Ephesians 1:6-10, "To the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He Loves. In Him we have Redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins...

"...on accordance with the riches of GOD's grace that He has lavished on us in all wisdom and understanding.

"He has made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ...

" be put in to effect when the times shall reach their fulfillment - to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ Jesus."

What are these end times? Matthew 24:5-14, Jesus teaches, "For many will come in My Name, claiming, 'I am the Christ' and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. You will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death. You will be hated by all nations because of Me. At that time many will turn away from the faith (in Jesus Christ) and will betray and hate one another. Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. This gospel of the Kingdom will be preached to all the world and then the end will come!" Many of these prophesies of Jesus have come to pass! Not many are left! Are you ready to meet Jesus GOD of Creation to be rewarded for all eternity with Him; or will you be meeting Him to be judged for eternal punishment being judged and cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity? His salvation is a free gift for your taking. Repent of your sin, ask Him to come into you heart and be your Savior. He will and He will confirm through His Holy Spirit entering into you. He will lead, guide, and direct you in His Holy Word, the Bible. Make your choice now, for the Rapture will occur when man least expects it! There is coming a great tribulation upon this earth. Don't be left behind!

Angels Proclaim Jesus' Birth

Myriads of angels, heavenly hosts, proclaimed the birth of Jesus, GOD in the flesh, Who "...would be for all people." Luke 2:10.

Christ Jesus came to be the sacrifice for all mankind's sin. Those who accept His free gift of salvation will become His own. Those who refuse to accept His free gift of salvation will be forever apart from Him and all His glory! Eternal life is for every single person He has created. However, where you spend it is another truth from His Living WORD. Reap the joy of His salvation and begin to comprehend what He has prepared for us! Or reap the sorrow of not having His salvation and suffer eternal separation that goes beyond man's comprehension! The Joy of Christmas in Christ Jesus goes beyond anything man could conjure up in his finite imagination. Though, man throughout history has tried. Those in Christ have a Merry Christmas and begin to know a joy that will last into eternity with our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD!

Angel Announces Jesus' Birth to Shepherds

Luke 2:3-12, "There were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks by night. An angel of the LORD appeared to them and the glory of the LORD shown all around them and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the LORD. This is a sign to you: you will find the baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'

So they travel to Bethlehem and found the Babe just as the angel had said.

Baby Jesus, Shepherd of His Flock

John 10:14, "I Am the Good Shepherd. I know My sheep and they know Me." The believers in Christ Jesus are known to be called His sheep.

John 10:27, "My sheep listen to My voice; I know them and they follow Me."

Jesus is GOD in the flesh. He came to redeem mankind unto Himself. All you need do is ask Jesus to forgive you of all your sins. He is our Great Shepherd.  Psalm 23 speaks of this. "The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters, He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Namesake. Yea though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me. Your rod and staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER."

Wise men from the East Follow His Star

Matthew 2:9-12, "After the Wise Men had heard from the King (Herod), they went on their way , and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the Child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. Entering in, they saw the Child with His mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped Him.

"They opened their treasures and presented  Him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

"Having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route."

The greatest Gift GOD gave to mankind was Himself. Jesus is GOD in the flesh Who came to save mankind from their fallen state of sin. He Loves us that much that He would take upon His body on the Cross, all sins of mankind. All you need do to receive this greatest gift you could ever have, is humble yourself confessing your sin which separates you from Almighty GOD and you accept His sacrifice for your sins. Ask Him to forgive you and He will. You then will know Him! For John 14:17 says, "You know Him (His Holy Spirit) for He dwells with you and in you!" Know your Creator GOD and His salvation for you and have a Merry Christmas!

Born Among GOD's Creatures

Luke 2:7, "Mary gave birth and placed her first born, a Son, in cloths and put Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn."

Jesus Christ, GOD in the flesh, was born among the animals He created. The lowing of cattle, the baaing of sheep and goats, the braying of donkeys, the quacking of ducks and honking of geese, the cackling of chickens, the naying of horses, the grunting of camels. What a welcome Baby Jesus had from His animal creation! The Inns were all filled and the animals those guests came to Bethlehem on were stabled where Jesus was born.  He was laid in a manger the animals normally feed from. Besides Mary and Joseph, the animals were privileged to witness the most important event to occur for all mankind, the birth of mankind's Savior!

Joseph and Mary Travel to Bethlehem

Luke 2:1-5, "Caesar Augustus issued a decree for a census to be taken of the entire Roman world. Everyone went to his own town to register. So Joseph went from Nazareth to Bethlehem to register with Mary who was great with child." 

Some months before, an angel appeared to Mary:

Luke 1:30-35, "An angel said to Mary, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with GOD. You will be with child and give birth to a Child, a Son. Name Him Jesus. He will be Great and called the Son of the Most High. The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. The Holy One to be born will be the Son of GOD.'"

Matthew 1:18-23, "Mary was pledged to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. The angel of the LORD appeared to Joseph in a dream telling him to take Mary as his wife for Who is conceived  in her is from the Holy Spirit. He is to be called Jesus because He will save His people from there sins."

This is the fulfilled prophesy of Isaiah 7:14, "Therefore the LORD Himself will give you a sign. The virgin will be with Child and will give birth to a Son and will call Him Immanuel  (which means GOD with us.)" Jesus Is GOD in the flesh, come to redeem mankind who will accept Him as LORD and Savior. Almighty GOD has made it possible for you to know Him! All you need do is ask Him for the forgiveness of you sins. His Holy Spirit will then confirm in you His salvation! Then His glorious promises will begin to fill your life with His Love, grace, and mercy! Hallelujah! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Animals Worship GOD In Spirit

Revelation 4:6-11, "Around the Throne of GOD were four living creatures...The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had the face of man, the fourth was like a flying and night they never stopped saying, 'Holy holy, holy is the LORD GOD Almighty, Who was, and Is, and Is to come.' Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor, and praise to Him Who sits on the throne Who lives for ever and ever, the twenty- four elders fall down before Him worshiping Him. They lay their crowns before the throne saying, 'You are worthy, our LORD and GOD, to receive glory, honor, and power for you created all things and by Your will they were created and have their being." (Have, not had.)

Psalm 148:10-13, "Beasts and all cattle; creeping things, and fowl...Let them praise the Name of the LORD: for His Name alone is excellent; His glory is above earth and heaven."

Fowl of every kind will praise the LORD!

Psalm 145:10, "All Thy works shall praise Thee, O LORD and Thy saints shall bless Thee."

Psalm 103:22, "Bless the LORD, all His works in all places of His dominion. Bless the LORD O my soul!"

These last two verses speak of GOD's works praising Him, which the animal kingdom is apart of His works. By these verses we read that the animals possess the ability to praise the LORD GOD Almighty.

GOD's New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem not only offered to the saints of Jesus' salvation (in their new immortal bodies) the glory of being eternally in His glory; the animals will also be in His presence giving Him glory, honor, and praise in their immortal bodies. For GOD's WORD says, "No thing that defiles will ever enter it (Heaven), nor will anyone who does shame or deceit." (Revelation 21:27) So the animals will receive new perfect bodies too!

Revelation 21:4-5, "I heard a voice from the throne saying, 'Now the dwelling of GOD is with men and He will live with them. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning, crying or pain for the order of former things has passed away.' He Who is seated on the throne said, 'I Am making everything new!' "  If you have not done so, accept Jesus today as your Savior and be overjoyed by His Holy Spirit to know in your heart without a doubt, His promises are true both for saved man and His animal kingdom.

Spiritual Blessings In Christ Jesus

Ephesians 1:3-5, "Praise be to the GOD and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ Who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In Love He predestined us to be adopted as his sons (and daughters), in accordance with His pleasure and will." 

GOD is All-Knowing. He has always been, He is, and He always will be! Therefore He has always known who will accept His salvation in Jesus Christ and who will reject His salvation in Jesus Christ. There are many Scriptures in the Bible where He proclaims this:

Mark 13:20, "...for the sake of the elect who He has chosen..."

John 13:18, "Jesus says, 'I know those I have chosen"

John 15:16, Jesus again says, "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you."

John 15:19, Jesus declares, "I have chosen you out of the world."

II Thessalonians 2:13, "From the beginning GOD chose you."

Colossians 1:12, "The Father qualified you."

I Peter 1:2, "(Those) who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of GOD the Father."

Romans 8:30, "Those He (GOD) predestined, He also called; those He called He also justified; those He justified, He also sanctified."

Do you want to know if you are predestined of GOD? If you have already accepted Jesus' death on the Cross for your sins, you already know this. If you haven't accepted the only sacrifice for your sins, you can accept Him now and you will then realize your predestination to be forevermore with our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD! GOD already knows, do you?

Isaiah 53:5 foretells Jesus, "He (Jesus) was pierced for our transgressions, He (Jesus) was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought our peace (of salvation) was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed (saved)." Romans 4:25 and I Peter 2:24-25 verifies Isaiah

Animals Do Have Souls and Spirits

"The Hebrew word for 'creature' and 'life' is 'nephesh' and means 'soul.' Man is referred to as a 'soul' (nephesh) more than 130 times!" (From: There is Eternal Life for Animals) The Word, therefore, shares not only man has a soul, but all his animal creation does too. I've often thought of soul as being the individual attitude, personality, and disposition. Animals also have these same characteristics.

Genesis 9:9-10 GOD says, "Behold, I (GOD) establish My covenant with you and your seed after you; and with EVERY LIVING CREATURE (soul-nephesh) that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, of every beast of the earth with you."

Revelation 4:11, is scripture above in picture.
"You are worthy, our LORD and GOD, to receive glory and honor, and power, for You created all things and by Your will they were created and have their being."

Animals are also spoken of as having spirits. In Ecclesiastes 3:21 it refers to animals as having a spirit, "Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?"

The Hebrew word for spirit is "ruwach." The same word for spirit (ruwach) is used for man and animal in this Scripture above. 

"In death, the body of man returns to the dust, but his spirit returns to GOD." (Ecclesiastes 12:7) Again, this word for spirit (ruwach) is the same word used for man as it is for animal.

Animals and people have flesh. However, "All flesh is not the same: one kind of flesh for men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, another of birds."   (I Corinthians 15:39). In the book of Numbers states all flesh has spirits. "Let the LORD, the GOD of the spirits of all flesh, set man over the congregation." (Numbers 27:16)

Psalm 145:21, "Let all creatures praise His Holy Name forever and ever!"

Psalm 36:6, "He (GOD) preserves both man and beast!"

Romans 8:21, " The creatures will be liberated from bondage and decay (death) and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of GOD!"

Colossians 1:23, "This is the gospel you have heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven!"

Man answers to GOD for the sin man has committed. Romans 3:23 shares "All (men) have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD." Romans 10:13 shares, "All who call upon the Name of the LORD will be saved." Come to the LORD today and forever be in His glory and all of His creatures of creation!

With A Thankful Heart

Psalm 69:30, "I will praise GOD's Name in song and glorify Him with Thanksgiving."

Matthew 26:26, Mark 14:22, Luke 22:19, I Corinthians 11:24, "Jesus took bread and giving thanks He broke it and said, 

'This is My Body, which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.'

I Thessalonians 5:18, "Give thanks in ALL circumstances, for this is GOD's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Psalm 100:4, "Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His Holy Name."

My prayer to you is that your Thanksgiving is to our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD. His promises are true! 

Philippians 4:19, "My GOD will supply all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus." This is why we truly offer to our merciful and gracious GOD, Thanksgiving!

Animals Know GOD is Their Creator and Provider

"The animals know that GOD is their Creator and Provider! They know Who to ask for help!" (From book, "There is Eternal Life for Animals")

Job 1:20 says, "Even the wild animals call out to You because they have no water to drink. The streams have dried up...

"...and the fire has consumed the pastures."

I believe GOD has given to animals an awareness of Him that is different from mankind's.  This can be seen in a previous post made (such as Balaam's Donkey). You can also see this in your pets who are leery of strangers. They also sense impending danger and alert their owners that were totally unaware. 

In a personal testimony of this, I had a Boxer breed dog named Reggie that alerted my parents to a seizure I was having.  He was in the living room and went running past the kitchen (where my parents were) and into my room. They quickly followed him and found him in a protective mode on the bed next to me while I was in a seizure (which I had not had before nor since.) 

(My Sweet Reggie)
What a wonderful thing that our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD has for all of His Creation. Even the animals outcry to Him has Him answering their needs.

Not only does our GOD supply their needs, His WORD says to us in Philippians 4:19, "My GOD will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Those who believe in Jesus as their Savior know this. If you don't know His salvation, you can. Simply humble yourself confessing you are a sinner ("All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD." Romans 3:23) Ask for Christ's forgiveness and He will forgive you. ("Everyone who calls upon the Name of the LORD will be saved." Acts 2:21) Join all of GOD's people for an eternity that will include His created animal kingdom as well! Psalm 145:21 says, "Let all His creatures praise His Holy Name forever and ever!" Psalm 36:6 says, "He (GOD) preserves both man and beast." Romans 8:21 says, "For the creatures themselves will be liberated from bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of GOD." Colossians 1:23 says, "This gospel that you heard has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven!" Hallelujah to what Almighty GOD has in store for those who come to His salvation in Jesus!

The Vast Information About Jesus Christ

John 21:20-25, "Peter turned and saw the beloved disciple of Jesus following them. Peter asked, 'LORD, who is going to betray You?' When Peter saw him (John), he asked, 'LORD, what about him?' Jesus answered, 'If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? YOU must follow Me.' Because of this the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die, He only said If I want him to remain alive... This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know his testimony is true. Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written!" 

This is a picture of just ONE vast library of books! Can you image the whole world being filled with books that would contain only the beginning of the things Christ Jesus did! How important the words of Jesus are! His Word, the Bible, contains His significant Words of Salvation for all who come to Him in repentance of their sins. For it was Jesus Who took  upon Him the sins of the world. Jesus is, "The Lamb of GOD, Who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29) "All who call upon the Name of the LORD will be saved." (Acts 2:21)

Hungry Lions Follow GOD's Command

Daniel 6:22-24, "The king gave the order to throw Daniel into the lion's den (for worshiping the GOD of Israel) and said to him, 'May your GOD, whom you continually serve, rescue you!' At the first light of dawn, the king got up and hurried to the lion's den and called out, 'Daniel, has the GOD, you continually serve, been able to rescue you from the lions?' Daniel answered, 'My GOD sent His angels and shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in His sight.' The king was overjoyed. Daniel was lifted out of the lions den with not a scratch or wound found on him because he had trusted his GOD. The men falsely accusing Daniel, along with their wives and children, were thrown into the lion's den. The lions overpowered them and crushed their bones." The LORD's command to the hungry lions was not to touch Daniel. He did close their mouths, but nothing was mentioned of them not
crushing his bones or clawing him to death as they did Daniel's false accusers (and family members.)

I Kings 13:21-28, "The LORD says, 'You have defiled the Word of GOD and did not keep the command GOD gave you.' When the man finished eating and drinking the prophet brought him a saddled donkey and the man on the donkey left. As he went on his way a lion met him on the road and killed him. The prophet said, 'This man who defiled the Word of GOD, GOD has given over to the lion which mauled and killed him.' His body was on the road with the donkey and the lion standing beside it. The lion had neither eaten the body nor mauled the donkey." Another case of animals doing the will of GOD and not harming one another. Only the man who defiled the Word of GOD met his punishment. 

No matter how man may try to understand animal psychology, they will not now know the communication Almighty GOD has with His animal kingdom. Psalm 145:21, "Let all His creatures praise His Holy Name forever and ever!" Romans 8:21, "The creatures themselves will be liberated from death and decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of GOD." This speaks of the New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem from which all things of this present universe will have passed away. Colossians 1:23, "This gospel (Jesus being the image of GOD and creating everything) has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven."

GOD's animal kingdom is going to be in eternity with mankind who have come to Jesus for salvation. You can know you are His chosen by simply humbling yourself and admitting to Him you are a sinner and asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins. He will, and His Holy Spirit will confirm this in you. Don't delay! Know Him today! Praise His Holy Name forever and ever along with His animal kingdom!
