GOD LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT
By Jerry Baysinger
How many of you remember as a child wondering if you were loved by your girlfriend or boyfriend?  Maybe you would pick a flower, and pull off the pedals one by one, saying, He loves me, he loves me not…  And you would rely on what the last pedal told you.  Did the flower always tell the truth?  Well, about fifty percent of the time it was right.  But what about the times it wasn’t?  You might throw away a wonderful relationship that could have lasted a lifetime, or you could have pursued one that was never meant to be in the first place.  All because of a pedal on a flower that has absolutely no wisdom whatsoever.  Either way, there’s a fifty percent chance you will go wrong.  I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like very good odds to me.

ONCE UPON A TIME

Once upon a time you could tell a Christian from someone who was not.   A Christian was positive, usually had a smile on their face, and a kind word no matter what their circumstances were.  They were absolutely upright in everything they did.  But these days, Christians seem to be going “undercover”, blending in so well with non-Christians that it is becoming hard to know the difference.  Driving down the road yesterday, at the posted speed limit, I saw a car fly by me so fast I could barely read the “Follow me to church” bumper sticker as they disappeared in the distance.  Wow! I guess they couldn’t wait to get to church….. Continue Reading »

CLEARLY HEARING GOD’S VOICE

Have you ever wondered what God has planned for you in time to come?  I have.  I used to think we would be floating around on some cloud forever playing some stupid harp.  And truthfully, while that might be ok for a while, it’s not something I’d want to do forever and ever, ages without end.  But the Bible reveals the future to us, and so we don’t have to wonder.  It is written in Ephesians 2:1-8: Continue Reading »

MAKE SATAN PAY UP

The Lord Jesus told those He was talking to that day, in John 10:10,The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Well, we’ve all experienced the thief, haven’t we?  And it doesn’t matter who you are, if you’re here, the thief tries to steal from you.  Whether you’re a nobody, or a rich and famous person, when it comes to the devil, we are all on equal ground, for he is an equal-opportunity thief.

IN ALL THINGS GIVE THANKS

Ever have one of those days that just doesn’t go the way you planned?  Today I was on my way to Oklahoma to a ministry conference, and my vehicle started vibrating badly like the driveshaft was out of balance.  It seemed like at any moment it might come out of there and pass me.  So my trip was interrupted to spend the night at a hotel out of town.  Hopefully it will be a simple and inexpensive repair, and I’ll be back on my way tomorrow.  Funny thing, most of the day a song has been going through my mind, “And in all things give Him thanks…..” Yeah, I guess that means even when your vehicle breaks.  Don’t get me wrong: I’m not thankful FOR the trouble, but I’m thankful IN the trouble.  Maybe it’s just a test.  Maybe it’s the devil trying to aggravate me, but I’m going to aggravate him back by praising God.  And if it isn’t the devil behind it, that’s ok, I’m going to praise God anyway, because it’s the right thing to do.

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD

Today I’d like to talk about healing.  I was recently at a Bible Study at a nursing home, and the Spirit of the LORD was present to heal, and I shared that with the people present.  And there was a man there, supposedly a believer, who said, “People should be content in whatever state they’re in, because it’s not always the LORD’S will to heal, and that’s why these people are the way they are, because it isn’t God’s will for them to be healed.”  That REALLY grieved my spirit, and I believe it grieved the Holy Spirit as well.  I can’t seem to get this out of my craw, and that’s why I’m back on it again today.

ALL HIS PROMISES ARE YEA AND AMEN

None of have life without problems of one kind or another.  The devil delights in driving down our road of life in his dump truck while his helpers are busy in back shoveling out potholes, dead ends and detours.  So are the days of our lives, with our paths strewn with problems.  Many people find themselves in trouble as they hit a rough spot in life, and the natural thing for them to do is to try to solve their problems on their own.  But when they find themselves overwhelmed by the problem, sooner or later, they cry out to the LORD for help.  Well, you know the LORD has every solution for every problem, no matter how severe it is. So the obvious solution is to turn our problems over to the LORD for Him to solve.  Why don’t we just do that and make our lives simple? Continue Reading »

CHRIST JESUS LIVES!

This Sunday the “Christian” world celebrates “Easter”.  Do you know what “easter” really celebrates?  It celebrates the abomination of pagan gods, the goddess of fertility, symbolized by a bunny, and eggs, thus we have Easter egg hunts and colored eggs and chocolate rabbits, and all that goes with the tradition handed down to us from generations ago.  And it has NOTHING to do with the resurrection of Christ Jesus.  But like most of you, as a child I looked forward to the treats and candies and pretty eggs given to me on Easter Sunday.  I continued to celebrate Easter in that manner out of ignorance into my adulthood, ignorant to the fact that it was an outright abomination to God.  And some of you do, too.  Some of you don’t even care that it is an abomination to God to celebrate Easter, because you’ve been doing it a long time, and that’s just the way it is.  But some of you, like me, want to please God, and so I’m writing this so you may know the truth.

BE AS YOUR MASTER

The Lord Jesus spoke the following in Luke 6:39-40, “And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind?  shall they not both fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. Today’s teaching is twofold, and again, the subject will be on HEALING. Continue Reading »

GOD’S GIFTS WILL PROFIT YOU

Now as soon as most people see the word “profit”, they think of money.  Well, that’s natural if your mind is on money.  But God’s mind isn’t on money.  In fact, God doesn’t have a penny in heaven.  And if you’re asking God to give you money, He can’t, because He doesn’t have any.  He can cause money to come to you, but that’s another teaching for another time.  Today I’d like to focus on PROFIT.
