JANUARY 7, 2015—STAND IN THE GAP—Ezek. 22:30

There is an account in Ezekiel of God’s people falling away, once again, from obeying His commandments and worshiping other gods. In His infinite patience, mercy and love God sought a way that would allow Him to not punish this people.

“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found none.
Therefore have I poured out mine […]

JANUARY 6, 2014—AT EASE IN ZION—Amos 6;1

The truth, correct opinions and right interpretations are everywhere around us and there is no lack of Bible teachers or those that are willing to expound on the Word…and rightfully so! But in nominal Christianity and even among true believers, where are those who hunger and thirst to be in the presence of God? Where are they who recognize the fellowship of His suffering and the blessings of sorrow or waiting, waiting, waiting on the Lord in order, finally, […]

JANUARY 5, 2015—IMPORTUNE PRAYER—I Thes. 5:17

There is a law of physics that says “For every action there is an equal and opposite  reaction”.   That is if you push on an object with 10 pounds of force is will resist back with exactly that same 10 pounds.  Although it seems like a simple law, all of science from the development of simple farm equipment to jet and rocket engines is based on the understanding of that law.

There is likewise a spiritual law that says “You […]

JANUARY 1, 2015—NEW BEGINNINGS—Gen. 1:1

From the first verse in the Bible, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” to the last verse of Revelation “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, amen.” God offers and promises new life and a new beginnings to all who will follow Him. Man, in his self-proclaimed wisdom, however, grovels in the useless theory of evolution and tries to prove that we came from a rock, all the while claiming that […]

DECEMBER 31, 2014—RIVER OF LIFE—Psalms 32:8

Pondering the past year and considering the next one is like standing beside and viewing a river in front of us. As we look up the river to our left and view what has happened in the past we can see “thus far hath the Lord helped us” (1 Samuel 7;12). As we turn our gaze to the right and look down the river into the future, most Christians can, to one degree or another, muster enough faith and […]

DECEMBER 30, 2014—DELIVERED—Ps. 37:5

Several years ago my daughter and son in law bought a mobile home and moved it onto a piece of land they owned. After moving in, their 2 year old daughter began to cry and point to something, no one knew what, and she continued to cry, off and on, for several days. At the same time her mother began to sense an evil presence which she told her husband about. He was at work much of the time […]

DECEMBER 29, 2014—CHANGING THE MIND OF GOD—Heb. 11:33-34

There are millions of professing Christians around the world and and a large majority of them do not believe in the power of prayer. It totally escapes them! Of the smaller number that do, there remains serious question; they say they do with their mouth because the Bible says so but doubt in their heart and question whether He will. Finally there are those (a small remnant) who believe, expect and count it as having been done. They know […]

DECEMBER 27, 2014—LAW AND GRACE—2 Cor. 3:6

Many Christians struggle with the age old question of the law verses the Spirit; that is… how we should live. And, as is typical of man, he can only see that there are two choices, law or grace. So we have those who become bound by law to the point of dictating certain garments of clothing, certain colors and even what style of collars to be worn at the expense of not ever hearing the voice of God, […]

DECEMBER 26, 2014—BE STILL, BE STILL, BE STILL—Psalms 48; 10

Scripture promises that prayer brings answers to the degree that even the desires of our hearts are granted for those who have deep, abiding faith. (Mark 11; 24) But it seems to only be possible, to those who have experienced this extraordinary power of God, if we become quiet and still enough to hear his voice and be led by His Holy Spirit. And that is not an easy task as written by A. B. Simpson.

“I […]

DECEMBER 25, 2014—IF I HAD NOT COME—John 15:22

Christians all over the world are celebrating the birth of Christ. It is an event that is most precious to believers for His coming changed the course of history like no other event since the beginning of creation. The story of the birth of Jesus will be read in many homes this day to the delight of children and adults alike. But have you ever thought what it would be like if He had not come?

There would be no […]
