WHEN IS THE LORD JESUS RETURNING
 
Monday, July 27, 2020
 
There are so many who are wondering when The LORD Jesus
Christ is coming back.  They say it has been 2000 years.  What they do not understand is that The LORD’s time is NOT the same as our time.

To understand it even more is to know that one day in our time is a THOUSAND YEARS in The LORD’s time.  Therefore, it has only been two days in The LORD’S time since He left the Earth.

Besides, we are so much out of order and have so much to learn that it is wonderful that He has NOT returned.  It would be magnificent for us to practice being MORE like Our LORD Jesus before He returns.

WE MEET ONLY OURSELVES
 
Rev. Ike said, "You meet no one but you."  In other words, as long as we remain in our own state of consciousness and never seek to expand our thoughts, we remain ignorant of what Jesus is saying to us.
 
We cannot perceive what we do not know and we cannot know what we do not accept.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY "DEVOTIONAL"?
 
 You may have wondered just what do we mean by this word.  I know that even though I am an ordained Minister, I have wondered and did NOT write anything here, because I was never taught exactly what it means!  I know that sounds crazy and wrong, but it is true.
 
We only do what we know and if we do not know, we will never put it into practice.  My husband and I studied THE SCIENCE OF MIND for 20 years, then enrolled in the School of Ministry in THE SCIENCE OF MIND and became ordained Ministers.  We taught classes in this study, opened a church "UNIVERSAL WISDOM FELLOWSHIP" for 20 years before we closed it.  Yet, we were never taught anything about a DEVOTIONAL or did we teach it.  Oh, we taught how to pray and everything about prayer, but never did we say a word about DEVOTIONALS.
 
So, what is it?  A devotional is a prayer that we give worship to or reverence.  In other words, what we devote ourselves to in prayer and worship in our life.
 
Now that we know, let us begin with the greatest prayer that we can that will make a mighty affect upon us.  We will give a new Devotional each week.

My LORD, what a morning.  In fact, what a wonderful week this is going to be.  You are always with me and I am so very grateful.  I love You with my whole heart, my mind and my soul.  Thank You for accompanying me every moment of my life.  You are so very dear to me.  This is a wonderful day you have brought into my life.  In fact, I know that this is going to be a magnificent week.  I thank You for my family, my husband, The Rev. Dr. Fred Ogletree, our loving daughter Tamie O. Pabellon and our Church Family, our Minister, The Rev. Ed Rawls and our Associate Minister, The Rev. Meg Williams.  We are so very blessed to have them in our life.  May God and The LORD Jesus Christ bless our Church Family with love, peace, joy and Divine delight.
