A SOFT ANSWER

 

Proverbs is a book I often teach from, and today Proverbs 15:1 comes to mind, and it should be an easy one to memorize, for it will come in handy many times in your life.  It says, A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.  Continue Reading »

LOVINGKINDNESS

 

A word kept repeating in my spirit last night and today; LOVINGKINDNESS. That’s certainly what is needed in each of our lives, more and more as the days continue to grow more evil day by day.  In today’s dog-eat-dog world, there isn’t a lot of lovingkindness.  That’s not to say it doesn’t exist, but it’s in pretty short supply, and I’m talking about even in GOD’S PEOPLE!

WHAT IS YOUR FOCUS?

 

There seems to be a lot of people who either don’t believe the LORD is returning soon, or just don’t care, by the way they live and speak.  I for one believe He IS coming soon, perhaps during my lifetime, and it moves me with fear, not of being lost, but of not accomplishing what He has called me to do.  And that is what?  Preaching the Kingdom of God and asking people to repent and become disciples of Christ Jesus.

BE MERCIFUL

 

God is merciful, and if we want to please Him, then we must be too.  And I guarantee you that there are enough “jerks” sprinkled among us, that being merciful isn’t always easy to do.  Yet I think of how we treat the LORD many times, and I’m amazed He hasn’t made crispy critters out of most of us.  God nearly destroyed all of mankind back in the flood, and only Noah and his family were spared.  Here we are thousands of years later, and I’m wondering how God can put up with us even another day.  It isn’t going to be pretty when He decides to deal with mankind’s evil.

REVEALING SECRETS

Here’s something that came up in my spirit this morning that I’d like to share with you. It is written in Proverbs 11:13, A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
We all probably know someone who, for one reason or another, likes to tell others about things told them in confidence. But according to the above verse, God doesn’t seem to like that. There was a TV show on many years ago where a lady sang, “We’re not ones to go around spreading rumors. Why really, we’re just not the gossipy kind! Oh, you’ll never hear one of us repeating gossip, so you’d better be sure to listen close the first time.” Now I know this has nothing to do with what I usually preach, but there must be a reason the LORD put this in my spirit today, and someone out there needs to hear this.

EVERY WORD OF GOD

Let’s start right off with the Word of God today, in Proverbs 30:5-6, it is written,
5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Let’s face it, the Word of God as it is written is by and large not preached in most churches today. Either it is being “interpreted” to say what it doesn’t say, or else much that it DOES say is being skipped over and ignored. Whichever the scenario is, the hearers lose out.

GRACE VERSUS LAWLESSNESS

It is written in Matthew 5:14-19, and these are the very words of Christ Jesus,
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Continue Reading »

JUDGMENT IS COMING

Each day I study Proverbs because there is one for each day of the month. There is a particular verse I like in today’s Proverb, 29:16, When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.

LOVE COVERS ALL SINS

What would it be like if everyone covered everyone else’s sins with love? Instead of finding and revealing everyone’s faults, we would instead ask ourselves, “Would we want others broadcasting OUR faults?” Well of course we wouldn’t, but that doesn’t stop it from happening, does it? What we all need in this “downtime” that much of the world is going through right now is more love and understanding. No matter who you are, you need your sins forgiven. There is NO ONE who can say they have no sin, we are ALL sinners, and as such, we are in need of mercy!

MY FRIEND THE OYSTER

Sometimes the LORD gives me a doozy of a name for an article, and today is one of them. When I woke up this morning I asked the LORD what I would be writing about, and He told me, “My friend the oyster”. Say WHAT? I don’t know any oysters. But here we go…..
