WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

“Waste not, want not” is an old proverb first recorded in 1772, and a statement similar to that was recorded earlier in the 1500’s, which is as useful today as it was back then. When we make good use of what we already have available, it keeps us from having lack in that area.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

This is the season when people ask one another, What do you want for Christmas? But what about the REST of the year? What do you want? I can think of several things I’d like to have; peace on earth, kindness from each of us, nobody hungry or homeless, to name a few. But let’s be realistic: as a default condition, mankind’s heart is evil, and that’s why the world is in the mess it’s in. Can we do anything about it? Yes, and no. On our own, very little, but with Christ Jesus, we can be thoroughly changed from the inside out. EVERY SINGLE DAY!

A BIRD IN HAND

There’s an old saying, ‘A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”, which I’ve heard from childhood. And yes, I was young once, believe it or not. Anyway, that saying popped up in my mind a while ago, so that’s what I’ll write about today.

BE THANKFUL

As you know, I normally publish my newsletter on Friday, but being this is Thanksgiving, it seemed appropriate to do it today, seeing the title is “BE THANKFUL”. Continue Reading »

GOD IS WAITING

Many people tell me they are “waiting on God”. So they won’t do a thing until they get a nudge from God. Therefore, they never do anything for God because that nudge never comes. And that’s because God is waiting on them to get about doing the work of the Kingdom of God. With all the talk about the “rapture”, many Christians have their mind on getting raptured out of here so they don’t have to go through the tribulation. But how does that line up with the Word of God?

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY AROUND JESUS?

Our words define our world, whether we think so or not. I was preaching some about that last week at church. An example I gave of that was, suppose your wife cooked your favorite meal, and you gave her a glowing compliment about how good it was. You can bet she will appreciate that, and will be very pleased with you. But suppose you told her, “That was the worst thing I’ve ever tasted, are you trying to poison me?” I’d imagine you’d be sleeping on the couch tonight, maybe tomorrow too.

AND THAT’S THE TRUTH

As I listen to those around me, many speak of problem areas in their lives, and I tell them God has a solution, but most say, “Maybe so, but that’s the truth.” Well, that may be “their reality”, but does that line up with “God’s reality”?

WAITING FOR HEALING

Today I received a lengthy text message from one of my friends questioning why people have to wait for healing, and why isn’t there someone out there with the power to heal like the disciples did? Sooooooo, let’s look into that one today.

SATAN FALLING AS LIGHTNING

We as believers upon Christ Jesus have WAY more authority than we are using, and that’s a sad thing. Here we go around doing our “victory dances” when for the most part, most don’t even exercise authority over even the most normal circumstances in our lives. We moan and groan over the junk the devil throws at us, and never consider the fact in 1 John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD.”

So, knowing the Greater One is in us, WHY do we let the devil push us around? Well I’ll tell you this, I don’t let him push ME around, and neither should you!

Look at what the Lord Jesus told His followers in Luke 10. This was after He sent the seventy out to preach the Kingdom, and they returned to Him with joy because even the devils were subject to them. Check it out:

16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Did you catch what Jesus said in verse 18? Satan got booted out of heaven onto the earth, then to add insult to injury, Jesus gave His followers authority over ALL the power of Satan and his angels. So why do believers fear Satan and his crew? Beats me! It sure isn’t Biblical, I’ll tell you THAT!
I know believers that have been constantly harassed by the devil for years on end, asking God for the grace to endure. They’re praying wrong! We should all be asking for the WISDOM to use our authority to OVERCOME! If you want to allow yourself to be constantly bombarded by the enemy while you duck behind your shield of faith, then that’s YOUR business, but I’m not a ducker, I’m an OVERCOMER! And God has given me enough wisdom to recognize the fact that we have ALREADY been given everything we need to put the devil and his crew under our feet.

I’ll make this short and sweet today: ask the LORD to give YOU wisdom about the authority you already have, and the COURAGE to use it. Today can be the beginning of a much better life for you, if you put this to work. A lot of people talk about warfare. Let me tell you, the war has already been won by Christ Jesus. The dust settled over 2000 years ago, and the Lord Jesus returned to heaven and handed us the victory and He told us to “Occupy till I come”. That means He gave you the same authority on earth that He wields, and to USE that authority to keep His earthly Kingdom in order, just as if He was doing it Himself. That means for all believers to MAINTAIN the victory that Christ Jesus won for us, not to let the devil rise up and take power again.

I hope this jacks you up a notch or two, and puts a gleam in your eye from today forward. Remember, Satan IS a defeated foe, so he is no threat to you if you are in Christ Jesus! And if you AREN’T? Today is your day! Make Christ Jesus the LORD and SAVIOR of your life and start your life as an OVERCOMER! And never let the devil beat you again!

ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL

Most of us probably remember the saying the “Three Musketeers” had, which was “ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL”. It’s a slogan that would serve Christians very well, being Christ Jesus led by example and gave His life as a sacrifice for all mankind. He would have gone through all that horrible agony and torture and died for YOU even if you were the only person on this whole earth. I think maybe people take His sacrifice way too lightly, because it happened so long ago, and plus the fact that none of us alive today were there to witness it firsthand, so they have not a clue what torture He endured for us.
