Nov.-Dec 2014

DECEMBER 16, 2014—GOD IS LOVE

Man with his limited, finite mind, if he has any interest or awareness of God at all, thinks of Him as someone who lives far up in the heavens and bestows compassion on those who acknowledge Him from time to time as the need arises.  But the Love of God is far, far more than that!

The all powerful, infinite love of G0d is what inspired creation and, further, maintains the order of the universe.  Without that unconditional and universal […]

DECEMBER 15, 2014—END TIME DECEPTION—Revelation 12:9

Most Christians would agree that we are in the end times, that is, nearing the time when Christ will return. The referenced verse makes a very profound statement about what will take place. Satan “deceiveth the whole world”. How would that be possible and and in what areas has man been deceived? First, Christians, by and large, have been duped into believing that the antichrist is an evil man that will appear sometime in the future, during the tribulation, […]

DECEMBER 12, 2014—THE TRIALS OF OUR FAITH

Have you ever thought what it would be like without any problems or trials in this life? At first it would seem to be absolute bliss. But There would be no need for God; no relationship with Him would take place; no fellowship or love between God and man; no life after death. In short man would be lost forever! Perhaps, the greatest blessings man has in this life are trials and difficulties, for he is thereby […]

DECEMBER 11, 2014—DAVID BRAINERD

David Brainerd was a missionary to the American Indians in New York, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania. He was born in Connecticut in 1718 and died in 1747 at the age of 29 years. By almost every standard known to modern missionary boards, David Brainerd would have been rejected as a missionary candidate. He was tubercular-died of that disease-and from his youth was frail and sickly. He was expelled from college and was prone to be melancholy and despondent. […]

DECEMBER 10, 2014—BROKEN CISTERNS—Jeremiah 2:13

“My people have…forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns,that can hold no water.”

What a terrible mistake to reject the living waters that God offers to his children and by our own effort build cisterns that cannot even hold water. What a shame to go through life accumulating earthly STUFF at the expense of spiritual knowledge. What a tragedy to have to admit, in the end, that we spent our lives for […]

DECEMBER 9, 2014—THE WISDOM OF GOD—Eccl. 9:14,15

“There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it; now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man”

Throughout history, Biblical and modern, there have been few men who have contributed great spiritual truths who came from prominent positions or who had extended human education. […]

DECEMBER 8—COMMITTMENT—Colossians 1; 10

Several years ago a young man from the east came out west to his uncle’s ranch because he wanted to become a cowboy. When he got there, his first question was “How can I learn to ride a horse?” Well, the old rancher gave him the short version and said, “Time in the saddle.” And then he began to give him the long version. “First, I want you to sit in the saddle while it’s on a sawhorse and […]

DECEMBER 5, 2014—COMMAND YE ME—ISAIAH 45:11

It’s hard for many Christians to truly comprehend and believe all that Jesus said. Can we really wrap ourselves around and totally be confident in what He said in Mark 11; 24? “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Imagine that! If we believe, He will give us the desires of our heart. In other Scriptures He promises to heal our bodies, renew our minds, give […]

DECEMBER 4, 2014—HUMAN EFFORT OR GOD’S POWER—1 Corinthians 2:4-5

If the preaching of the Word is given by means of human wisdom or experience, the faith of the hearers will only be in the wisdom of man. And even if there is a spark of enthusiasm, it will fade and come to nothing as time goes on. Contrariwise, if the message or witness has come by the power of the Holy Spirit, attitudes, practices and lives will change forever. Paul states in the key verse that […]

DECEMBER 2, 2014—A HIGHER CALLING—Matthew 5

For those who have had an experience with the Lord, (and only those who have had that experience) it is possible to glimpse the vision that Spiritual truth is the real and the physical is the unreal. Or to put it another way, in an overall sense, the Spiritual is the substance while the physical is the shadow. As man travels the Christian highway he will begin to see that the world operates completely opposite from the spiritual realm. […]
