Strong In The Lord

Grow Strong in the Lord! Ephesians 6:10  says;  “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.  Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers, of this world’s darkness;  And against the spiritual forces of evil, in…

Ezekiel 7:1-13

    Ezekiel 7:1 thru 13   “Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying;  And you, son of man, thus says the Lord GOD, to the land of Israel;  An end!   The end is coming on the four corners of the land.”   God said that to Israel, in about 570, maybe 580 BC.  But when we read it today, is that what God is saying to us?…

Food For The Soul

    God’s Word is Food for the Soul     (closing hymn # 31)   Did you bring your appetite with you this morning?  And did you bring your food? Jesus said in  Mathew 5, verse 6;  “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”   Too often when we think of food, all we think of is food for our belly.   But Jesus says; …

Life’s Daily Pages

    Swiftly We’re Turning Life’s Daily Pages   That’s what the song says;  “Swiftly we’re turning, life’s daily pages.  Swiftly the hours, are changing to years.”  Amazing isn’t it?  How “swiftly” time goes by!   The hours, turn into years.  One hour, you’re a child, playing hide-and-seek, and the next hour, you’re wondering where your childhood went! But each day, is just a page in your life, isn’t it?  And…

The Sweet Words Of The Lord

      How Sweet are the Lord’s Words !   The bible says in  Hebrews 11, verse 6;  “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”   But just “believing” in God, isn’t good enough. The bible says in  John 8:24;  “I said therefore unto you, that you shall die…

The Almighty Logos

      The Logos is God !   I’ve been told that in some places, some people within the body of Christ, are questioning the Deity of Christ..  Questioning, the Deity of Christ! Of course the word “Deity” refers to someone who possess a divine nature;  In other words, a God.  So then the question is..  Is Christ God?  What does the bible say?  Don’t even be concerned with…

A Burning For God

      Burning in our Hearts for God   I’d like to ask you to think about something this morning.  Have you ever had a “burning in your heart” for anything?   It’s like all you have to do is just think about something, and this feeling comes over you.  Have you ever had that burning in your heart for another person?  Maybe it’s for a husband or a wife. …

Beyond The Sacred Page

  Beyond the Sacred Page, I seek Thee Lord   Where do you think is the first place, and maybe the best place, that you should go, if you want to seek the Lord?  Would it be the very word of God, the bible?   If someone doesn’t know much at all about God, where would they go to learn about God?  The bible!  Right? Jesus was speaking to a crowd…

The Son Of God

      God Personified   In the bible, God often times has personified Himself, as if He had a physical body, like we do.  For example,  Psalm 34:15  tells us;  “The EYES of the Lord are upon the righteous, And His EARS are open to their cry.”    And in  Isaiah 59, verse 1  we read;  “Behold, the Lord’s HAND is not shortened, that it cannot save;  Neither his…

I Am Crucified With Christ

I am Crucified With Christ   Let’s begin with reading  Galatians 5, verses 22 thru 25.. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Against such there is no law.”   Listen to that last part again..  “Against that, there is no law.”  The word “against” really means..  “compared to that, or set along side that.”   Actually, it literally means..  “down from that”,…

Searching The Scriptures Daily   I’d like to read to you  Acts 17, verses 10 & 11..   “The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night, to Berea.  And when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.  Now these were more noble, than those in Thessalonica;  For they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily, to see whether these things were so.”   Paul…

  There Is A Sin Unto Death Let me read to you  1 John 5, verses 16 & 17.  We were talking about these two verses last Sunday morning in bible class.  Those verses tell us;  “If anyone sees his brother committing a sin NOT leading to death, (the phrase “sees his brother”, in this verse, means.. if you become aware of, or if you perceive this happening)  And so…
