THE WORD OF THE LORD

Last week I was warning people about saying “The LORD said….”, and justly so, for there are many false prophets out there proclaiming stuff the LORD never told them to say.  But today I’m telling you something the LORD definitely DID say.  And though many tell me that doesn’t apply to us today, let me ask you something: What part of “for ever” does not apply to us “for ever”?  In this particular instance, I’m talking about God’s Holy Days.  Many would see this as “I’m not going back under the law, as we are in the age of grace”.  But if your very favorite person whom you’ve always wanted to meet, say a famous movie star, said, “On these days, I will meet with those who really love me.”, wouldn’t you make every effort to meet with them?  Wouldn’t you take time out of your schedule to be with them?  Well, I guess it depends on how important to you it is, right?

HEARING AND LISTENING

If there is anything I’ve learned in all my life, it is that hearing and listening are not the same.  Many people say, “The LORD said….”, and yet the LORD DIDN’T say that to them.  How can I so brazenly say that?  Simple; what they said the LORD said, didn’t line up with His written word.  God never violates His Word, for any reason, for anyone.  So when I hear someone say the LORD said it, I get busy with my Bible and find out if He did or not.

ALWAYS RIGHT

Here’s a question for you today:  Have you ever been around someone who is always right?  What do you think of them?  Be honest now, and examine your heart. Maybe you’re ok with it, maybe you’re a bit resentful, maybe you’re a LOT resentful.  Think about it for a moment. Continue Reading »

CLOSER THAN YOU THINK

Every day that passes brings us closer to the day of the return of Christ Jesus.  It’s safe to say we’re closer today than we were yesterday.  The Bible says in Matthew 24:36-42,
32  Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33  So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Continue Reading »

BECOME WISE

Ever since man was created, God has been making His wisdom available to them.  In the Garden of Eden, God gave Adam dominion over all the earth, with only ONE “Thou shalt not”, concerning the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  God was setting Adam up for a wonderful life, and warning him to leave that tree alone.  Then God created Eve and brought her to Adam, and she was also given the warning to leave that tree alone.  So what happened?  We all know the story, they disobeyed God and ate of the tree they were told to leave alone. They threw wisdom out the window.  It is written in Proverbs 1:2-7, Continue Reading »

CONSIDER HIM

Today I’d like to start with an encouraging scripture, found in Hebrews 12:1-3,
1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Continue Reading »

MORE ABOUT THE POWER OF OUR WORDS

The Bible has a lot of teaching about words.  Are we REALLY aware how very much power our words have?  They not only affect how we get along with other people, they also affect our relationship with God, and they most certainly affect every area of our lives and even our health.  And yet most people speak things out without having the slightest sense of the consequences of those words.  Words can incite riots, words can heal, words can build up, words can destroy.  We need to be very careful with our words, they are like bullets in a gun, once fired off, they cannot be called back.

POWER OF OUR WORDS

With our words we can make friends, or make enemies, cause people to listen, or cause them to turn away.  For example, You can walk up to someone standing by their motorcycle and say, That is sure a nice bike, tell me about it, and most likely they will thank you and tell you all about it.  OR, if they’re not too big and you’re brave enough, you can tell them that it’s an ugly piece of junk, but not quite as ugly as they are.  That of course will not likely end well.

READING THE WILL

Whenever there is a death, there is usually a will left behind to ascertain the property left behind will be distributed as the one who died desires.  And of course, everyone who thinks they stand to inherit something will show up for the reading of the will.  Most sit there with high hopes they will leave inheriting something of great worth.  Now suppose the one who died was rich; and I don’t mean just “rich”, but wealthy beyond even their wildest imagination.  Now you’re getting the idea.  The will is about to be read, and all the family members gathered are sitting on the edge of their chairs.

TELL ME THE WHOLE GOSPEL, NOT JUST PART

Let’s say you are a jigsaw puzzle fan, would you want to buy a puzzle with some of the pieces gone?  No?  why not?  Well, you’d want the whole picture, right?  And if some of the pieces of the puzzle are gone, you don’t have the whole picture when you’re done putting it together. But yet, we seem to be satisfied to go to church and hear part of the Gospel week after week.  Sure, I know you can’t preach the whole Gospel in one sermon.  But in the space of weeks, you can.  So then why are so many Christians missing so many pieces of the puzzle?
