June 10, 2023.
Hello friends, and sponsors, and happy, happy, June 2023.
Praise The Lord, summer is in full bloom. Here at the Shoes Saves Foundation Ministries; our roses have begun to bloom, and what a beautiful sight. I personally, spent many hours this spring/summer season, pruning them, and working on the lawn; and various other gardening projects, including the church summer annex construction, and placement. We like to call it, The Winner's Circle, praise Jesus! Please see the home page, under Fact Of The Month, for our gardening commentary. Changing gears a little bit, I want to chat with you concerning our, Shoes Saves Foundation calendar of events, in particularly, Octoberfest, (October 1-31, 2023, please see the current events tab). Octoberfest is "NOT", a drinking holiday, here at The Shoes Saves Foundation Ministries, like celebrated by, Germany every year. For us, here at The Shoes Saves Foundation, Octoberfest, is a time for us, to celebrate the community, and then; end the month with a harvest celebration, as fall has begun. The Lord of Host, or
(The LOH), who does call, for all his people, to bring him forth, the first fruits of the harvest/crops; every harvest, and every year. That has never changed, although; a good portion of that biblical knowledge, is in Old Testament, however, The Christ, our Lord and Savior, as well as, The son of The Lord of Host, is the same yesterday, today, and forever, (Hebrews: Chapter 13, verse 8). This, just simply means, what was then, is also now; unless, The LOH said, a particular thing was done, and has been done away with. In fact, here at The Shoes Saves Foundation Ministries, or
(The SSFM), we do not believe in any drinking, or; to that point, anything else, that is not acceptable, from a biblical standpoint. In addition to that, the bible points out, only a few reasons to drink alcohol, and for your own edification, here are the reasons:
1) Communion: Your reference is, Luke: Chapter 22, verses 11-23.
2) Celebration: Your reference is, John: Chapter 2, verses 1-25.
3) Medication, For The Sick: Your reference is, Proverbs: Chapter 31 verse 6.
4) For Kingdom Come Regarding New Paradise On Earth, When Jesus Returns: Your reference is, Luke: Chapter 22, verse 18.
As we know, Jesus, walked the Earth sin free, and did not allow, or encourage, any else to be involved in any sin, so thereby, indulging in alcoholic beverages, or wine is not a sin, otherwise, Jesus, would have turned his own nose, up to it; making it known, to be sinful, as he always did, on all things, that were forbidden. We know that, the act of being a drunkard, especially a public drunkard, is a sin. Praise The Lord.
Don't forget; to keep us in prayer, at The Shoes Saves Foundation, as prayer does truly change things. Also, don't forget to send in your much needed donations, as so many depend on them; because our goal is to help as many as we can, while also continuing our building renovation project. In addition, if you'd like to send any donation, including your own tithes, an offering, you may do so, by following the instructions on the donations page. Finally, if you would like to join our ministry, please go to the contact page, and follow the instructions. Praise The Lord, our scripture reading for the month of June, comes from the book of Proverbs, chapter 3, verses 9-10, which says: "Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine."
Praise The Lord. Don't forget the harvest/crops, of your own first fruits. Hallelujah!!!!!
Reverend Joi Karla Hubert,
With the love of Christ, remember God is Good.
Recite Joi's Prayer below, for those who love to pray their own way, through any situation:
Lord Elohim, help us through this time, and bring us to our correct and rightful place. Remove all demonic forces from around us, and those who heed their call. You are righteous, and just; and a guiding force through all darkness. We also ask you to cleanse, and purify all that we eat, and drink, on a daily basis. Lord God of all the heavens, and earth, I believe in my heart, that Jesus is the son of God, and confess with my own mouth: Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. Jehovah God, you answer the prayers of those who ask, and call on you in the name of the Messiah. Bless us with right standing Lord, bless us with health, and strength Lord, and help us meet all requirements of our own daily existence. Shine us up Lord, and remember us Lord, then take us on wings of glory where we should go, stay, and remain; in the name of Jesus, Ben Elohim Al Akbar. Amen and Amen
