FEBRUARY 19, 21015—QUENCH NOT THE SPIRIT—1 Thessalonians 5; 19

The fifth chapter of 1 Thessalonians is a warning that the time is short and the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. But “Ye are all the children of light …Therefore let us not sleep as do others but let us watch and be sober” (vs. 6). Then what follows is a long list of important imperatives like “rejoice evermore” and “Pray without ceasing” and some things to be careful to avoid […]

FEBRUARY 18, 2015—WALKING ON WATER—Matthew 14; 28-30

When Peter asked the Lord to receive him by walking on the water, he did not consider the wind and high seas. He stepped out in faith for his focus was on the Lord. But when he began to allow the reality of the situation to creep in, he immediately began to sink. In desperation Peter cried out and the Lord reached out for Peter’s hand and saved him.

This is a common occurrence for us today. […]

FEBRUARY 17, 2015—STAND FAST IN LIBERTY—Galatians 5; 1

There is a very great misunderstanding among Christian leaders today. Because they have been placed, for one reason or another, in a position of spiritual authority, they have allowed a certain pride to creep in, (pride being the original sin). It comes from continually being looked up to for answers and advice on what a person should believe or which way he should go. It is a quite natural trap to fall into but it is the very […]

FEBRUARY 16, 2015—INTERCESSION—Job 42; 10

The story of Job is very familiar to most. Job had seven sons and three daughters, seven thousand sheep and three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred she asses. In other words Job was very rich and considered “the greatest of all the men in the east”. He was perfect in his relationship with the Lord but, at Satan’s request, was allowed to be tempted to prove his commitment to God. […]

FEBRUARY 13, 2015—SPIRITUAL LUST—1 Kings 19; 12(nlt)

There are times of enormous frustration while we travel the Christian path, but it is certain that the source of the trouble is our own and does not originate from the Lord. In chapter 19 of 1 Kings Elijah is demanding immediate answers from the Lord for he says, “I have zealously served the Lord God Almighty but the people of Israel have … killed every one of your prophets. I alone am left and now they […]

FEBRUARY 12, 2015—SONS OF LIGHT—1 Thessalonians 5: 4,5

Mark Twain once said, “The two most important days of a persons life are the day he was born and the day he figures out why!” Well, Christians, at least true Christians, are not confused about that and are optimistic. They have purpose and joy and are just waiting to see what the Lord will do next.

John Knox knew the power of God and the purpose for which he was born. He prayed and the results caused Queen Mary […]

FEBRUARY 11, 2015—HIGH PLACES REMAIN—11Chronicles 15; 17

Asa was king of Israel 900 years before Christ and by the account of Scripture he was a very good and godly King. He “did what was right in the eyes of the Lord his God” (11 Cron. 14; 2). Further in chapter 15 we find that “the heart of Asa was perfect in all his days”; nevertheless “the high places were not taken away out of Israel”. High places (the top of hills) were used […]

FEBRUARY 10, 2015—HAST THOU NOT KNOWN ME—John 14; 9

In John chapter 14 Jesus is explaining to His disciples about His father and why He must go away; to prepare a place for them. But Thomas responds, “Lord, we know not whither thou goest and how can we know the way?” The question gave our Lord the opportunity to take them to a higher spiritual level for He said, “I AM the Way”. The disciples had known and followed Jesus for some time. They […]

FEBRUARY 9, 2015—BEHOLDING IN A GLASS—11Corinthians 3; 18

The key verse demands our full attention. It, in general terms, defines our purpose and direction in this life. “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord”. The imperative found in this verse is to behold the Lord as in a mirror and then as our lives are changed, and they […]

FEBRUARY 8, 2015—I AM WHO I AM—Exodus 3; 14

When Moses was being sent to Egypt to deliver his people he asked God who he should say sent him and God said to tell them “I am hath sent me unto you”. This seems to be a very strange answer to the question… but considering the message that Jesus brought when He came to earth it becomes more clear. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life”. God did not send His son […]
