“Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, And declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’ 

' Jeremiah 31.10 '


It is the obligation of every citizen of any country to inform himself about its laws, or he will fail to provide any of the information requested. Those who don't want to know about them can be fined, or, depending on the case, go to jail. Similarly, many Christians despise the Lord and, because God is love, they put off until later, and this later never comes. Those who do not seek to know their obligations become rebellious.


God's summons is for all nations, regardless of whether His laws are strict or lenient. Since He is the Creator, all are summoned to obey His voice, even if they refuse to accept what He says. One country or another may even say that it doesn't believe in the Most High, but on the Great Day, when all will stand before His throne to receive judgment for their attitudes, many will be in despair before the Judge par excellence (read Matthew, chapter 25).


Here is Jesus' command: the Church must go into the world preaching the Gospel to every creature. The authors of the law of a nation, who prevent their people from knowing the message of the saving work of Calvary, will be condemned for preventing them from hearing the Truth and being converted. If the authorities want to control the faith, they will be held responsible for such evil. The condemnation will be eternal and irreversible!


There have always been dictators who have seized power and come to control the population, thinking that this is what is best for them. Now, the intentions in the hearts of those who consider themselves great will be shown. The message of the cross has to be preached to the world, so that everyone can decide for Christ. The devil uses the authorities in some places to prohibit the transformation of people through conversion to Jesus!


The message should be given to the nations, and also to the crowds of people unreached by the preaching of the Gospel residing on distant islands. God committed His Word to bring back the Hebrews who went into exile in search of a place to live in peace, free from persecution and the mistreatment received where they lived. The fact that Israel resisted the preaching of the Gospel caused them to be banished to the farthest corners of the world at that time.


According to Jeremiah, God Himself scattered Israel throughout the world, but now the descendants of Jacob would be gathered together by Him. Many people need to accept Christ before it is too late; otherwise, they will be eternally lost. Therefore, God raises us up to go and meet these people. Many are not of Jacob's physical blood, but of the spiritual. The Lord Himself will take care of our work of evangelization.


The Most High still promises to protect those who will come seeking salvation; after all, one of His Names is the Good Shepherd, who lays down His life for the sheep (John 10.11). We cannot leave the lost out of the plan of salvation. We must care for them with joy and courage. God will give us strength!



In Christ, with love,

God, our good Shepherd! How can we not heed Your call, if You are all perfect? Your voice is unmistakable. It touches us deeply and gives us tremendous peace when we hear it. May we give the nations the Good News that transforms lives, and brings full salvation!


It is exciting to know that You will bring the lost children of Jacob to the planet. When they hear You, they will rise up and shake off the yoke that binds them, and they will come to You with joy. Thank You for giving us such beautiful news!


You have spread them, taking them safely to every place in the world. They have learned new languages, how to do business, and have not forgotten to love You. Now they will come to join us in true faith in Jesus. Father, praise be to You!

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; For I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn.

' Jeremiah 31.9 '

The way of the Lord is always the best. Knowing our spiritual structure - which, by the way, is weak (Psalm 103.14) - God shows us the best and safest way to hit the target, without deviating. Therefore, never rebel against those who bother you, but pray and be a submissive servant to God in everything. You are not able to understand everything that is shown you, but since the Father knows all things and has promised to keep you, He will help you.


The Most High says that we will come to Him with weeping. So, when you stand in His presence, pour out your soul completely. Weep what you must weep, lest you do it in the face of an attack from the enemy. Be strong to face the devil and overcome him. Whoever desires heavenly help must open himself completely to God with tears and cries. Before the Almighty, empty your being, that He may fill you with good things!


Supplications are short prayers made when in need, such as "Help me"; "Have mercy on this person"; "Lord, don't let this happen" etc. God guarantees that our prayers, resolutions and declarations of faith will be answered (John 14.13). Therefore, in any need, believe in what you will speak in the Name of Jesus and go all the way, believing that your decision will be confirmed by the One who promised. Believe!


As the Most High carries you into battle, open up your heart to Him and make your supplications. He says that He will lead you to streams of water that will water you, feed your faith, and strengthen you, for the power is in the Word sent (Deuteronomy 8.7). The Lord promises streams -revelations- capable of equipping you for the decisive battles (Psalm 1.3). He knows how to enable His servants to emerge victorious from struggles. God is perfect in everything!


The Most High will guide you to those streams on straight paths. From beginning to end, He will never use dark means. The saying that God works in crooked lines is false. The Lord’s involvement is done in holiness; otherwise, it is not His work. God's way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; It is a shield to all who trust in Him (Psalm 18:30). Refuse that which has any error or vice!


There is no stumbling block for those who follow the Word. It is the way God uses to bless us. The Father is holy, pure; his enemies will stumble: But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One. Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail. They will be greatly ashamed, for they will not prosper. Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten (Jeremiah 20.11).


The reason God blesses us is simple: He is our Father. Why walk outside the guidelines of Scriptures, if outside the Scriptures the enemy will never leave us in peace and with that, we will have afflictions all the time? Well, cast your afflictions on the Lord and live well!


In Christ, with love,

Lord, our Guide! We must come to You with weeping, and with supplications You will lead us. We open our hearts, that You may cleanse us from sins we committed. We want to be cleansed by Your work!


Your promise is to lead us to the stream of waters through sure paths. Then we will not stumble over the obstacles placed before us by the enemy. We need Your gaze so that we don't wander off the path, but rather bear witness to Your deeds!


You promise to be the Father to Your Israel, the people who love and serve You with unconditional love. You always know what You are doing, and You proved it when You blessed Ephraim as the firstborn, even though he was born later. This also happened with Esau and Jacob. Use us, Father!

Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and the one who labors with child, together; a great throng shall return there.

' Jeremiah 31.8 '

Isaiah foresaw the Diaspora that the Israelites would suffer, when they would be scattered throughout the world for having rejected the Messiah, who came to solve their problems. Because the Jews rejected Jesus, we Gentiles were saved (Romans 11.11-15). Sometime later, Jeremiah declared that the day will come when the movement will be reversed - the people of Israel will be brought from the land of the North.


Today, many are on their way home, returning from all nations to their biblical origins. It’s the revival! They return to Israel with the most diverse experiences, yet they have not denied their origin or their God. The fig tree is already bearing its buds (Mark 13.28,29), and the day is coming. The fruits of the promise will fill the world with the knowledge of Jesus, the promised Messiah. We already see among the remnant of the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob the beginning of the acceptance of Jesus - rejected by the Jerusalem elite more than two thousand years ago - as the true Vine (John 15.1).


Those who come from different cultures from the land of the North bring the desire to know the Truth and thus come to love God from their heart. It is beautiful to see many receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the seal of promise (Ephesians 1.13). With this, the God of wonders has turned the solitary fugitive Jacob into a flock that will fill the Earth as many as the sand of the sea. Whoever receives the fullness of the Spirit becomes king and priest to the Lord of the harvest (Revelation 5.10).


Those who experience the new birth receive the power to turn the lost into sons and servants of the heavenly Father. Jehovah, the Lord of lords and holiness, overpowers all "gods", proving there is only one God, one Way, and one people called by His Name. The Bible prophecies are beginning to be fulfilled, and the time to prepare for what is to come is today. They are being gathered from the ends of the Earth. The glory belongs to Jesus'!


Those who were completely blind to the Truth are being set free by it, as their eyes light up. One day in Amman, the capital of Jordan, I cried as I saw Arabs singing that Jesus was the Savior. Those who could not see the Truth are now also part of the redeemed. It is Ishmael coming to worship together with Jacob, just like at the burial of Abraham in the cave of Machpelah (Genesis 25.9). Jesus' death has united them!


Disabled people are no longer forbidden to enter the temple of the Lord to worship God in spirit and in truth. Pregnant women with revelation will be present along with those in childbirth. The Word will be confirmed in the smallest and greatest details. Our generation will see the Truth being known by all. Even those who were repulsive to what God does will become true worshipers and serve Him.


    In Christ, there is an opposite movement to that of the tower of Babel, when people spoke another language; now they speak the same language: the Truth. There is no difference, nor discriminated against or rejected. The Lord's work is to turn the two peoples into one (Ephesians 2:14-16).


In Christ, with love,

R. R. Soares

God of our salvation! The solution to our problems lies in the faith in You. From the two peoples, holy and wicked, You have made one: the saved. Now we are Your peace to settle the differences between people. Salvation in Jesus unites us!


Your promise is to bring from the land of the North those who have been scattered, as well as to gather from the ends of the Earth others who have gone astray. Lord! The time has come for You to open the eyes and ears of those who were created by You for a purpose greater than we think!

Bring the sick to see You and walk in Your way; pregnant women and those in childbirth to conceive true citizens in the new Earth. Thank You for promising that they will be in Your great assembly!

For thus says the Lord: “Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, ‘O Lord, save Your people, the remnant of Israel!’ 

' Jeremiah 31.7 '

Beginning to understand God's plan for the redemption of mankind is good. The more our understanding is enlarged with the beauty of the redemptive work of the Most High, the greater the glory we will know. Surely, we will be amazed at every revelation of His will. Only the Lord could create a way to redeem us from the fall, to be free forever from the devil's kingdom. Now we are free!


Jeremiah begins his message by saying: For thus says the LORD. This shows the seriousness of his speech. Later, Jesus himself said: Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away (Mark 13.31). Everything that comes from the mouth of the Almighty is true and will be fulfilled at the right time. God knows everything that will happen, even in the distant future. It is good to heed God's warning about things to come!


The message received by Jeremiah to announce to the children of Israel was that they should sing about Jacob, their father. No doubt, this Jacob would be one of the descendants of the patriarch, the Messiah about whom Daniel spoke, who would come to free the people from the oppressions of the dark empire (Daniel 9.25,26). Now, the song praising Him should be done with joy. In fact, there is nothing more beautiful to hear than the songs that speak of the love of the Savior born in Bethlehem (Luke 2.8-20)!


How many people have been moved by praising Jesus, His love and peace? It is impossible to calculate the number of sick people healed by hearing a song extolling the power of this mighty Name. Many demons are manifested when people are singing about Christ. In 1975, in Nova Iguaçu, blind Jorge was freed of a corneal ulcer when we sang about the triumphant Name of Jesus.


God's message called the Messiah the Head of the nations. In the Bible, there are numerous names given to the Son of God. He is the Head of the nations, because everything is from Him and came into existence by the power of His Name, which is over every name: Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name (Philippians 2.9). At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth (Philippians 2:10).


Our mission is to proclaim that Name not only in words - often empty of anointing - but in authority. People marvel when we give praise to Jesus, and the hellish force twists itself and releases its captives, because it cannot stand the fire and power that comes from the Name of the Lord. With Him, you defend yourself against the attacks of the evil one's kingdom. We must proclaim this Name that sets people free and sing praises to God.


It is not necessary to ask, but to confess the Word, which tells us: ‘O Lord, save Your people! Now, there is a little remnant of Jacob's descendants who will not be saved, if the hearts of our brothers do not agree that the Almighty will do this. Use your authority now!


In Christ, with love,

R. R. Soares

Lord of the Mighty Name! We desire to follow Your lead - leading people to You - and see how much You can do for those who seek You and take pleasure in Your commandments. The saved will never be disappointed or confused. We sing about Your Name with joy!


Praising You gives us excellence, fills us with pleasure and exultation, for You are the Head of the nations. We don't want to be silent, but to keep on knowing You more and more, glorifying You accordingly. It does us good, nourishes us, and draws us closer to You!


We will proclaim Your grace to all the people! You raise the poor from the dunghill and make them sit among princes. You bring us out of oppression and into Your halls where we pray, asking You to save Your people, the remnant of Israel. Father, the glory will be all Yours!

For there shall be a day when the watchmen will cry on Mount Ephraim, ‘Arise, and let us go up to Zion, To the Lord our God.’

' Jeremiah 31.6 '

  The Church longs for the day when its members will be used by the Lord as He used Jesus. But we have yet to be transformed by His power. If we are not one Body with Christ, we will hinder the plans of Heaven. The man without discipline and the servant without vision will do his own will, and not God's. That would be chaos! We are not praying yet: Even so, come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22.20b).


The Most High has set watchmen over His work, and they will not cry out before the time (Ezekiel 3.17). The members of the Body of Christ must belong to Him indeed, and not the "enlightened ones" who promote themselves, as if they owned the revelation. As long as these teachers, doctors and wise men do not understand John the Baptist's statement, the watchmen will not open their mouths. Upon hearing about the deeds of Jesus, John said: He must increase, but I must decrease (John 3.30).


The watchmen on the mountains of Ephraim live desolate lives, because the message for all to fulfill the Lord's purpose could not yet be delivered. The men of God do not understand that the work is not theirs. To do it with pompous displays and personal promotion is of no use. The work that was prepared before the foundation of the world must be accomplished in this generation (Ephesians 1.4), as Jesus demonstrated in His days here on Earth (1 Peter 1.20).


The order will be given, and everyone will arise as a well-organized army, each one conscious of the mission to be accomplished. Then the world will be surprised. We must put a stop to the aspirations and desires of the heart and seek true conversion. See Peter's answer to the paralytic at the Beautiful Gate: Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk (Acts 3.6). We lack power!


May God help us to let Him lift us up to go up to Zion, David's fortress! The beloved king was strengthening himself there, seeking the Lord and going out to win his wars. You see, we talk much and do little. We must surrender to the Man of War, who will lead us beside still waters (Psalm 23.1,2). But the people despised them, cheering Rezin and the son of Remaliah, who got together to attack Judah (Isaiah 8.6). This is a time for conversion!


The Church needs to go up to Zion and strengthen itself for the battles to come. Hell is already preparing for when the Antichrist appears (1 John 2:18,22; 4:3; 2 John 1:7). This spirit is in the world and contaminates many servants of the Lord. The Scriptures say: Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition (2 Thessalonians 2.3).


Those who have the wisdom of God cannot stand idly by. The facts that Jeremiah saw occurred just as told. We need to go up to Zion, to the Lord our God, and not to promote ourselves and do our best. The Most High knows why he has called us and what the plan is for us. We will go up to Zion, if we diminish ourselves for Him to be magnified!



In Christ, with love,

Prepare us for when the watchmen cry out, commanding us to arise and go up to Zion. Your warning signal cannot be ignored, and we must understand that we are part of Your plan. Let us be like Abraham, Your friend and servant!

You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria; the planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food.

' Jeremiah 31.5 '


When the Bible talks about the weeping lasting all night (Psalm 30.5), this is not a hypothesis, but a truth, for God is love (1 John 4.8). However ungrateful we may be towards Him, He will love us again. A simple touch of the Lord in our heart is enough to remind us how happy we were when we walked by His side. This is a sign that forgiveness awaits us, and therefore, we must pray and confess our mistakes in order to obtain God's forgiveness.


Because they have not been taught about it, many think that the deviant are lost. Yes, deviation takes a person away from the Creator, but He declares: “Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you (Isaiah 49.15). Why let the devil undermine your heart with vain thoughts when God says that He will not forget you? Come back to the Lord!


The Israelites of the Northern Kingdom gave themselves so much to the enemy that the Lord allowed the evil one to oppress them under the hands of Shalmaneser - the evil king of Assyria who destroyed the kingdom of Samaria and scattered the children of Jacob throughout the Land. These, because they did not seek the Most High, never returned home (2 Kings 18.9-12). Similarly, those who turn away from the Lord continue on the downward trajectory which will end in the abyss!


However, when God's people pray and ask for mercy, soon the divine plan is put into action, bringing all who believe back home (2 Chronicles 7.14). According to today's verse, vineyards will still be planted on the hills of Samaria. Jesus is the true Vine (John15.1), and those who love Him will plant in people's hearts faith in God. Then they will begin their way back. Jeremiah prophesied to Judah, but in this context he was used to speak to Israel.


The mountains of Samaria are waiting for those who know how to plant faith in those who are lost, for the Father has already given the yes (2 Corinthians 1.20). Moreover, the Son said: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16.15,16). Many have already returned to the fold of the Good Shepherd, but there are still those who have not been reached. It is our obligation to present to them the Way of salvation.


Although we do not understand our responsibility to the lost, the prophecy cannot fail to be fulfilled. Jesus commands us to go into the world and preach the message, planting the Good Seed in empty hearts, especially in the straying sheep of the House of Israel. In response to the disciples' pleas about attending the Syro-Phoenician woman, the Master declared: I was not sent but to the lost sheep of the House of Israel (Matthew 15.24).


Many times, people's requests are not answered, because they have not taken their place in the mission fields. Now, the mountains of Samaria are unclean because of the works of darkness carried out there, but this will all change when the vineyards of the Lord are cultivated there. Then its fruits will be eaten!



In Christ, with love,

God of the commandments! No Christian can shirk from the responsibility of presenting the Bread of Life to the lost, as well as to the wayward. We need to take the Good News to the ends of the world and reclaim lives!


We must obey and walk through the planet speaking of Your love. Now, without Your grace, it is impossible for us to go forward. We must not be like the religious people, who have no way to prove that You sent them. Give us power!


Our example is Your Son, who made the people know Your will. So, we ask for the same grace, that the sick may be healed and the world may see that You are in us, using us to fulfill Your command with power and love!

Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.

' Jeremiah 31.4 '


God prepared three blessings for the Old Testament church, the virgin of Israel. The brethren of that time had no way to walk in perfection before the Most High, for Christ had not yet died for the lost. Today, anyone, regardless of being an Israelite or not, can be saved. All that is needed is to hear the Good News of what Jesus did for humanity and believe it (John 1.12). In His sacrifice, Christ took upon Himself our sins, as well as our transgressions, sicknesses and diseases (Isaiah 53:4,5).


At the coming of the Messiah, most of God's people turned their backs on the Father by not accepting His Son, who would change everyone's life. Now, the Church is built on an act of righteousness carried out by Jesus when He died in our place. Philosophical preaching will not lead the lost to salvation, nor will offerings of material goods lead people to serve God. What will convince the world about Christ is the demonstration of the Spirit and of divine power.


The apostle Paul knew the responsibility of preaching the Word as Jesus did and spoke about it: And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God (1 Corinthians 2.4,5). A person will only be born again if we bear good witness by following the Master's example!


The text under study says that the Lord would build His vineyard, and this began to be fulfilled when the Son took the Good News from town to town, manifesting divine power in the lives of the suffering. According to the Word, multitudes followed Him because they saw God at work: Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His signs which He performed on those who were diseased (John 6.2). This is how the Church of Christ will be edified.


No one will succeed in edifying the Church unless he acts as Jesus did. It is not enough to gather a group of lost people and indoctrinate them according to the will of man. It’s necessary that people's faith arise because they have heard the Word (Romans 10.17), with the testimony of the Holy Spirit. Thus, they will feel the divine call and surrender to Jesus, tasting the Lord's will and loving Him with all their heart. The Church of Christ needs to be adorned with its tambourines!


The instruments of power sent from Heaven for the Father's work to be done, adorn all who love Him, and transform them into good planters of faith in hearts hardened and overcome by sin. God uses the tambourines as an example of the good sound produced by us to those who are still unaware of the joyous sound of the divine anointing in us. The adornment made with gifts and skills from God will make the world understand His plan. Let there be light!


When the members of the Body of Christ go out to fulfill their mission, they resemble the chorus of the Hebrews, who danced after crossing the Red Sea, where the Egyptians who were right behind to kill them, ended up at the bottom of those waters. Get ready to go out with those who have been prepared for this age, because the virgin of Israel is to be edified. God is faithful!




In Christ, with love,

The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.  

' Jeremiah 31.3 '

The message left by the Lord for Jeremiah is the same message He would say if He also paid us a visit. After all, God loves all His servants equally (Romans 2.11). So be thankful for all that God speaks to your heart through the Scriptures (2 Timothy 3.16). Many desire to see the Most High personally or to hear His voice with their own ears, but He has not promised this to anyone. So, prefer the usual way, by which those who put their trust in Him are guided. It’s good to live by faith!


The words that come from our God fill us with joy and give us the strength to face the battles of everyday life. When we are reading the Bible and at a certain moment, we feel that a passage jumps out at us, as if it was written just for us, we know that the Lord has given us that message (Luke 24.32).


Our heart can distinguish the divine voice from the voice of the devil, which is heavy and only brings us sorrow. When God speaks to us, we are sure that He has addressed us in order to convey something good. The voice of the Lord fills us with happiness and pleasure; with it, we need not fear. So, surrender to your heavenly Father and understand the answer that comes from Him.


The eternal love that attracted Jeremiah later made God send His Only Begotten to save us: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3.16). Only when Jesus returns will we fully understand this great love and the reason why He has restored us to a position of dignity before the Father never seen before.


You see, even if you were the only person in the world and served the enemy, being outside the Kingdom of God, He would still send Christ to die in your place. The gifts of the Most High are made in love and are everlasting (Romans 11.29). Whoever receives Jesus as Savior and perseveres in the faith is never lost. Divine love will not allow the kingdom of darkness to take that soul back to its lair (John 10.27-30).


The everlasting love with which we have been loved will never end. That is the Lord's promise. So, we must strive to please Him in everything. God also declares that He has drawn us with His loving kindness (or hopeful kindness, or kind hope). Before we were saved, Jesus drew us with these two blessings: everlasting love and lovingkindness. Imagine what the Father will offer us when we come before Him in Heaven!


Don't frustrate the Most High’s plan for your life. The world may not recognize you as good company, but the Almighty accepts you as His child and wants you by His side for ever and ever. Therefore, avoid the temptations that arise to take you off the path to happiness. With God, you will reign forever. Start now!

Thus says the Lord: “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness— Israel, when I went to give him rest.” 

' Jeremiah 31.2 '

The Israelites escaped from Pharaoh's sword, but in the desert where they spent a long and painful time, they found God's grace. It’s amazing how it supported Israel even in that very hostile environment to man. Although in that group there were people of all ages, including children, no plague occurred among them, except when they sinned (Deuteronomy 29.5). No matter where God puts you, live with joy and faith!


When Nazism took over Germany, Adolf Hitler, its leader, ordered the genocide of the Jews. An estimated six million lives were taken because of the madness of this man without any pity for the children of Jacob. However, God's grace prevented the annihilation of the patriarch's descendants, even though they refused to listen to the Lord, who wept over Jerusalem, saying that their house would be empty of divine power (Matthew 23.37,38)!


Only in Heaven will we know the reason for all that suffering, but the fact is that God did not allow the extermination of the Jews. Now, Germany, a great power, was determined to dominate the world, making sure that there were no Jews left on the face of the earth. The Lord, however, in His wonderful grace, acted wisely and showed His people how much He values them. So, while we don't know for sure why the Jews faced such terror, it is certain to say that rejecting Jesus was the worst decision they could have made (John 1.11)


God's grace is everywhere, ready to work in the lives of those who love Him with all their hearts. All we have to do is listen to the Most High and follow His commands, for since He rules over everything and everyone, He is wise. We cannot let the enemy divert our attention from the divine precepts. He who is wise does not think twice about acting as the Father has commanded. The Lord is the Commander!


The statement is Israel - it evidences that God's commands are intended first and foremost for those called by His Name. The term “Christian” means Christ-like, like a miniature of the Master. Being like Him, why don't we consecrate ourselves as the Son of the Almighty did? Jesus learned obedience through His afflictions (Hebrews 5.8), and yet we ignore His guidance as we enter seemingly endless battles.


The Word guarantees: “For I am the Lord, I do not change; therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. (Malachi 3.6). We can expect from the Lord the same treatment given to Israel, for that is how He teaches His people to fear Him. If we get away from the Scriptures, we will end up lost in the labyrinths of life: To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them (Isaiah 8.20).


We live in a different time than Israel did before Calvary. Now the end of the word that came to God's people is fulfilled: When I give to him rest (Jeremiah 31.2c). There is no reason for us to struggle in order to obtain some divine promise, because Jesus consummated everything in His death and resurrection. Our struggle today is in believing, for Christ has already overcome the devil!


In Christ, with love,

God of our rest! The Word instructs Your Church to rest in You. So, let us never fight to get promises, but let us ordain, claiming that which is ours. Your Son has already made us more than conquerors!


No matter how great the trial, in the end, with faith we will triumph, and You will receive all the praise. I pray that my brothers and sisters will grow in faith, because the Word declares that if we believe, we will see Your glory and not be ashamed!


We have escaped the sword ever since Jesus defeated Satan, taking him out of combat forever. Now all we have to do is resist the devil, and he will flee from us. We have already found grace instead of our punishment, the wilderness. It makes us understand that we only have to rest and believe!

“At the same time,” says the Lord, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people.” 

' Jeremiah 31.1 '

No matter how much a Christian wants to do God's will, he must remember that God's Word states: To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:(Ecclesiastes 3.1). No one can change what is recorded in Scriptures, for they are God Himself in the form of words. Those who respect the Lord live according to the information found in His Holy Book (2 Timothy 3.14-17).


On the cross, Jesus cried out: It is finished (John 19.30), to echo through eternity that all things would change. From then on, everything would submit to the work accomplished by Him. Therefore, Jeremiah's prophecy began to be fulfilled when man's transgressions, as well as his pains, sicknesses and diseases, were laid upon the Son (Isaiah 53.4,5). Through the blood of Christ, we are saved and, by His wounds, healed (1 Peter 2.24).


This is the time for us to convey the Good News to mankind and to perform the same works as Jesus did more than two thousand years ago. He wants to continue them using His servants, whom He called, saved, sanctified and anointed. These make up the Church of Christ, with the power to bind and unbind what is needed: And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven (Matthew 16.19).


We must understand this monumental work, to which we have been called, as an obligation that weighs on us, but without considering ourselves superior to anyone. Whoever thinks otherwise is wrong. We have to act like John the Baptist and declare: He must increase but I must decrease (John 3.30). It is necessary to remain humble until the end. Woe to him who is proud of the work the Most High does through him and does not give God the praise He deserves (Psalm 65:1; John 4:24). Meditate on this!


It’s time to gather mankind into one Body - the Church built by the Lord - and remain obedient to the Most High, instead of opening up your congregation, which will then become a family farm - something for your own benefit. Jesus, who took upon Himself the pain of our transgressions and illnesses, will not be satisfied with a mere apology: A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; he rages against all wise judgment (Proverbs 18.1). Be vigilant!


Notice the two errors. The first is to seek your own interest, when Jesus instructs us: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6.33). The second is to hinder the eternal plan of the Lord's wisdom, which warns us not to give place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27). These irresponsible acts lead many people to take their hand off the plow, abandoning the Way, and they are examples that the good-hearted should not follow (Luke 9.62). Behold the Day of Judgment!


Converts need to be respected, for they are God's people and not servants who follow the evil purposes of the world. They need to be taught in the revelations of the Word and the testimonies of faithful Christians. The Lord declares that we must be holy, for He is holy, and two will only walk together if they are in agreement (Leviticus 11.44; Amos 3.3). Pray!



In Christ, with love,

God of the generations of Israel! Your plan is grand, and only because You are merciful can we be a part of it. However, there are Ananias and Sapphiras making deals and allowing Satan to fill their hearts to cause scandal in the work. Mercy!


We do not know how to act outside Your Word. Without Your assistance, men make decisions contrary to Your purposes and they sin. We beseech You, oh Father, that the deceitfulness of riches, the cares of this world, and the ambitions of other things don’t overtake us!


Sanctify those who desire to be pure, but cast away from them the unclean, whose friendship is corrupting and deplorable. We desire to remain servants, and never a reason for some to go astray. Help us to serve You in spirit, truth and holiness!

If you obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.



' Deuteronomy 30.10 '

Its up to us to listen to the Lord’s voice, which few saved people do, even though they claim to do God's will in everything. However, whenever they can, they judge others and don't measure their offensive words. Many would never have the courage to commit physical adultery, but when they see someone who pleases their eyes, they imagine things and sin in their heart. Therefore, nothing of the Lord is fulfilled in them.


The verse says: If you obey the voice of the Lord This is the condition for the promises to be real in the life of the Christian. However, instead of making an effort to obey the Word, we prefer to sacrifice ourselves in things that we call prayer, like the Pharisee, who looks like a saint, but his cry does not reach Heaven. Now, without doing what God commands, we will receive nothing: And why do you call me Lord, Lord, and not to do the things which I say? (Luke 6.46). Put yourself in the position of a servant, and the Father will help you. Believe in order to live well!


The commandments must be kept, both the ones common to all and the specific ones, directed to someone by the Word or by the testimony of the Holy Spirit. There are positive ones, which command "Do this and that", and negative ones, which forbid certain practices. The statutes, on the other hand, are part of the set of rules established in the Word, such as divine healing, holiness, and the others revealed in daily life, during biblical meditation.


Conversion to the Gospel is the beginning of everything. Without it, you will never be able to walk in faith as you should. As long as there is something hidden in your life, you will continue to be caught in the snares set up by the evil one. When you accept Christ as Savior, you become free to serve the Most High, and often, as soon as you read something in the Bible, you understand the message.


Your surrender to Jesus must be complete. It begins with your repentance for past and present wrongdoings, and continues when you wish to live in communion with the Father when you become aware of some command or prohibition He has imposed. Seek the Lord without reserve. Then the Holy Spirit will teach you the promises of the Kingdom concerning praise and blessings, for you are loved by Him!


In order not to have a lair, however small, in your life, for the enemy can nest there, conversion must be wholeheartedly. Walk with the Lord to prosper more and more in His presence. Those who have not yet made the decision to side with Christ will never experience the law of freedom in its entirety. God wants your whole being in His hands. This way, you will experience the gifts that He has in store for the faithful.


Leave everything bad, flee from moral filth, and abandon the messes of life and every evil involvement, so that the Most High can receive you: Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. “Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you” (2 Corinthians 6.17).



In Christ, with love,

Beloved God! When we listen to You, soon You begin to take the true place in our hearts, and we begin to walk with You. The evil man will never know good, for he has an aversion to the good things You have created!


Our decision to leave the things of the world and live for Christ is definite. We will not turn back or give the devil a place in our life. Father, examine us and see if there are any evil ways in us. Help us to leave all that is no good!


We desire to convert with all our heart and all our soul. Our desires are Yours. We want to be fully delivered from the contaminations of the enemy. Those who love You take pleasure in keeping Your commandments. We love You, Lord!

The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers

' Deuteronomy 30.9 '

The Most High affirms that if one accepts Jesus as Savior and keeps His commandments, His joy will be the same as when Abraham and the other patriarchs decided to be doers of the Word. God is prepared to give those who surrender to Him a prosperous life such as never seen before. We can say that the Lord wants to bless us just as He did Solomon, to whom He gave special wisdom.


In the verse under study, the Lord is clear in saying that to the faithful He will repay with abundance in every work of His hands (see also Matthew 16.27; Romans 2.6). The unfaithful, on the other hand, will taste scarcity, because they prefer to walk in the group of traitors. Jesus promised us abundant life; therefore, we cannot live in poverty: The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly (John 10.10). The underlined part is mine to call your attention to the promise.


The servant of God must believe that he will have abundance in his abilities - in the works of his hands. If he lacks a gift, he can ask the Lord, who will give it to him liberally, without reproach (James 1:5). But you must ask in faith, without doubting (verse 6). There can be no limits for those who are faithful to God, as there were for Abraham's 318 servants (Genesis 14.14). They were not soldiers well trained for war, but the Most High used them during an emergency!


If the Father is ahead of you, never run away from the battles that come, whether in court, if you are a lawyer; whether in the ICU, if you are a doctor, or in other areas of life. God's promise is to bless every work of His hands. God delights to see His children fighting with heavenly weapons. Having the Man of War fighting on your behalf, your success is guaranteed. Believe!


The Almighty will give you plenty, not scarcity. Then, check if you have been walking the right path; if there is no sin in your life. Then, glorify the Lord for the victory you have achieved. Thus said Jesus: "And whatever you ask [command, claim or take possession of] in my name, I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14.13). This is the password for putting divine power into action!


Abundance will also be seen in your children, in your animals, and in the harvest of your land. Observe: God will do this for your good, never for you to suffer any loss. Whoever is helped by the Lord is never in trouble, because he can ask for His favor. However, the one who despises Him practices the things condemned by the Scriptures. Such a person will certainly experience the afflictions caused by the devil's hatred.


What a beautiful ending the verse we are studying has! In it, we read that the Most High will again rejoice in you for good. He has already rejoiced over your conversion to the Gospel - the same fulfillment He had with the patriarchs - and He made a feast in Heaven over it (Luke 15.7,10)!


In Christ, with love,

R. R. Soares

God, who rejoices with us! You are good, and You reveal to us the delight You have when we accept Jesus as Savior! It is beautiful to read this statement in Your Word! We never thought it possible, and Moses knew it 3,500 years ago.


Father, make our hearts wise to rejoice Yours again! Heal us, that You may be pleased with it, and grant us prosperity - both abundance of goods and answers to prayer.


Such is our joy to be able to say these words to You, Lord! Our faces are bathed in tears! There is no one like You, holy and powerful God! You love us unconditionally. We want to do Your will!

And you will again obey the voice of the Lord and do all His commandments which I command you today.

' Deuteronomy 30.8 '

Whoever wishes to walk with the Lord must turn from their evil ways, for this is an express command from the Creator (2 Chronicles 7.14). Here is the first lesson. Conversion begins when we hear the preaching of the Gospel, where we are confronted by it about the wrong things we practice, and are grieved by it. Then, determined to stop acting against the Truth, we confess our iniquities to the Lord and begin the journey toward what has been revealed to us.


Trust in God increases as we take our place in Jesus, leaving the works of the flesh and practicing the teachings of the Word. This is the second lesson: as we hear the voice of the Lord we discover, in wonder, that He hears us. When we learn about any promise of the Most High, we must take hold of it. Now, He would not have us learn something of no use to us. Belief in the revelation from on Hgh is the great secret of a full life with the Lord!


When we act according to the Scriptures, it is as if God were physically in our midst, for in fact, His Word assumes this absence. The same power that reached the participants of Jesus' meetings in Israel more than two thousand years ago also operates in our lives. If we believe the Bible, we will see faith arising in our hearts, and then the same power will manifest itself and perform the same works. Believe it!


The third lesson is: obey the Lord's commandments. This attitude will make us successful amongst the people, but let us not forget what God has shown us. We must never waste the visitation of the Lord. After learning something from the Holy Book, we must issue an order immediately. By bearing witness to our faith in the Lord, leaving no doubt in the minds of those watching us, we will obtain what we have been shown in the Scriptures.


We cannot be like the Pharisees of the past, who said one thing, but did another. Let us receive what has been revealed to us by God. That will be the beginning of a life full of success and battles won. Nothing that you have been told should be received with suspicion, or simply left behind. After we have decided to turn to the Lord, let us be alert to read or preach the Word, for He will speak.


Those who have not yet heard Christ's message, or refuse to believe it, need to know it in order to obey His teachings. After all, they have the power to make anyone wise. After converting to Christ, the individual receives God's best and becomes a true blessing to himself and others. The Holy Spirit is all around every saved person to give them victories!


Listen to the voice of the Lord and keep the commandments. Each time you heed the Almighty, you become stronger and complete. Never fail to heed the Father's commands; otherwise, He cannot be your God. Now it is your turn to love the Lord and be loved by Him. Do this now!



In Christ, with love,

R. R. Soares

Father, our Teacher! We bow down in Your presence, for we need You. We confess our mistakes and cry for Your forgiveness. Thus, we will purify our souls. Have mercy on us, give us Your salvation and deliver us from evil, O God!


As we turn to You, we leave the dirty world and turn to seek Your face and Your love. We want to listen to You, for we have learned that Your Word is the Lord Jesus Himself in His eternal form. You are so wonderful, Lord!


Help us to follow Your commandments. If we don't have You by our side, with Your power, we can never praise You for Your works on our behalf. Without Your Spirit, we can do nothing good and perfect!

Also the Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.

' Deuteronomy 30.7 '

In the Old Testament period, curses existed and could be placed on enemies. Today, however, we live in a time of grace, and we must proclaim salvation in Christ to all people, leading them to understand that Jesus died for mankind. Therefore, they do not need to remain in rebellion. The great loss of the lost is not to understand that the saved have at their disposal the healing of diseases, the forgiveness of sins, and the power to overcome all struggles. God is love!


    Nothing is more rewarding than to recognize the benefits of the Lord to those who strive to keep His commandments. As Jesus said, such a person will also be loved by Him and the Father (John 14.21). That is the secret! Besides knowing and following God's precepts, anyone can be free from evil in the twinkling of an eye. Thus, it’s easy to unite with God and use His power to cast out temptations.

Choose to live as the Lord's beloved. He will help you in a wonderful way! If, however, you choose to live in rebellion, you will continue to be dominated by the law of sin and death. Right now, God's power is ready to work in every part of your being - spirit, soul and body. Therefore, repent of your errors and give God the right to rescue you. Then rebuke evil, in the Name of Jesus, and believe!


  What is the reason for someone to persecute someone who does good to everyone? When a person acts this way, the forces of evil charge him for the evil done to the other. Now, that which is not good for you should be no good for anyone else. Let go of hatred, hurt, and resentment, forgive those who have offended you, and ask the Lord to forgive you also. Then demand the departure of the devil and his evils. After ordaining this way, live according to the Word!

Doing good and living as Jesus lived in this lost world is the least the saved person can do on behalf of those who need help from Heaven. Once you are aware that you are enlisted to be a good person, your spirit will feel strong enough to use the help or instruction given by God. Then you will free yourself from the clutches of the evil one. This may work right now, so get rid of your misfortunes now!


   The person who bothers a child of God certainly has not thought about who he is to the heavenly Father, the Creator of all things. God is Almighty, but He will not give "change" to anyone. Be careful! When fighting against the life of a lost one, the devil himself knows what and when he can harm such a life, and recognizes who helps him in his evil nature. Turn to the Lord now, and He will turn to deliver you from your troubles.


One thing is certain: God only forgives the wrong done to someone when the offender turns to Jesus and is born again. According to biblical teaching, when we become new creatures in Christ, the old things pass away and everything becomes new (2 Corinthians 5.17). So, seek to receive Jesus as your Savior. He will teach you the way to follow, guiding you with His eyes. Live without fear!


In Christ, with love,

R. R. Soares

God of justice and power! Your Word tells us to love those who hate us and give them the Good News that by turning to Christ they can get rid of their problems. By accepting Jesus, the sinner is saved and empowered to overcome evil!


We don't want You to put the curses on those who have wished them on us. Being servants of the evil one, such a person could do nothing else but hate us and help the devil. The one who receives Jesus as Savior becomes Your child like any one of us!


Our enemies need to open their eyes and convert! Those who hate us must become our friends and brothers in Christ! In response to what they have done to us or to any innocent person, we must forgive these people, ministering to them Your blessings and Your love!

And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

' Deuteronomy 30.6 '


The man who does not have his heart circumcised - which occurs in water baptism - lives dangerously. Baptism - considered a demonstration of conversion to Christ - is more than that. In it, we receive at least six blessings necessary for those who desire to be right with God and do His work. Without the mark of Christ - one of the meanings of this baptism - we will not make a difference amongst the people.


Circumcision was mandatory in the Old Testament, even before the Lord gave the Law through Moses. Not only the fathers were to be circumcised, but their children too. The example of this command was when God almost killed Moses, because he did not do this on his son: Then Zipporah took a sharp stone and cut off the foreskin of her son and cast it at Moses’ feet, and said, Surely you are a husband of blood to me! (Exodus 4.25). It was necessary!


    In those days circumcision was done physically, but today it happens in the spirit. It is the mark that every saved person must have, because in spiritual battles, angels and demons look and know if the person is of God or not. The uncircumcised person cannot give the heavenly Father the love He deserves: to have the commandments and to obey them. By not doing this, the person ceases to be loved by the Lord, and this we can never allow. Be vigilant!


We and our seed must love God with all our heart. In other words, we must keep the commandments with all the necessary strength, without abandoning the fight. Those who claim any reason not to be in spiritual fights give the devil the certificate of victor. Mercy! This must never happen to the saved. Saul was wrong not to wait for Samuel. Wait for Samuel to come!


One day Saul surrounded David to kill him, but David was sure that God would not abandon him, so he stood firm: Then Saul went on one side of the mountain, and David and his men on the other side of the mountain. So David made haste to get away from Saul, for Saul and his men were encircling David and his men to take them (1 Samuel 23.26). Then the king received news that the Philistines had invaded Israel, so he stopped following David.


A little bit more and Jesse’s song would have been killed. But God brought forth that messenger, and the king left this matter for later, for he had to defend his land. Whenever you and yours are in trouble, remember: the Lord can deliver you. God is with those who trust in Him. Look: the divine hand guarded David, sending the messenger to Saul. The Father acts on behalf of His children.


With a circumcised heart, you will succeed. In any crisis, when you ask the Most High for help, you will see that He will protect you. Later, Saul went into a cave to attend his needs, and David was there, but David spared the king's life (1 Samuel 24.3-22). 



In Christ, with love,

Lord of true love! Your mark is welcome to those who love You, for it assures them dignity and worthiness. Being Your children, nothing more logical than to have the sign of circumcision within us, proving that we are loved by You!


Our love is not only shown in words and deeds, but also by fearing You. Nothing is better than having and keeping Your precepts. Because You have marked our hearts through circumcision, we experience Your love!


Father, we love You with all our being and all our soul, doing Your will, without letting the enemy interfere in the mission given by You. We thank You for what You have commanded and will still command us to do. We can live Your Truth!
