Sept.-Oct 2014

OCTOBER 14, 2014—I BELIEVE GOD—Acts 27; 25

Acts chapter 27 records that Paul, as a prisoner, was being taken to Rome to stand trial before Caesar. But he warned the crew that if they set sail at that time of year he perceived that there would be ‘hurt and much damage’ because of the possibility of storms. However, they decided to go anyway. Not long after they set sail a violent storm came upon them to the point that the crew feared for their lives. […]

OCTOBER 13, 2014—HARDENED HEART—Exodus 7; 3

In the account of the Exodus God told Moses that He would harden the heart of Pharaoh and Pharaoh would not let the people go. We know from Scripture that one of the reasons was that God wanted to demonstrate to both his people and the Egyptians that He was a powerful God. Beyond that, however, it has always seemed strange that God would purposely harden the heart of one when it would be just as easy for […]

OCTOBER 9, 2014—STAND FAST IN LIBERTY—Galatians 5; 1

The freedom that we have in Christ is found in the New Testament “Law of Liberty” and Paul declares that we should ‘stand fast in it’. The problem is it will not be truly felt, embraced or understood by those who are nominal in the faith…that is in those who do not know His voice. The liberty that we are talking about here is the freedom that comes from “not being entangled with the yoke of […]

OCTOBER 7, 2014—LET NOT GOD SPEAK WITH US—Exodus 20; 19

When Moses brought down the ten commandments to the people of Israel they said, “Speak Thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.” Nothing has really changed 3500 hundred years later. We broadcast our lack of commitment, love and affection toward God by preferring to listen to His servants only, not to Him personally. It simply takes too much time in prayer and meditation to establish that relationship […]

OCTOBER 6, 2014—MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE—John 10; 27

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”. That is a clear and powerful statement, not easily watered down and yet, most Christians go through life unsure as to whether God has spoken to them or not. How can that be? Isn’t that the entire substance of the Christian life; to hear His voice and obey? Perhaps the reason that we do not hear from Him is that (1) […]

OCTOBER 2, 2014—THE ULTIMATE TEST—Romans 8; 28

God promises in the key verse that, “All things work together for good to them that love God”. But most of us don’t really believe that God engineers or allows all circumstances… although we say we do. We remember seemingly bad things that have happened to us in the past only to realize long after the fact that it was for good. The problem is that while it was happening we complained and were in unbelief and […]

OCTOBER 1; 2014—LORD, TEACH US TO PRAY—Luke 11; 1

The most common understanding of this verse is that the disciples asked the Lord to teach them HOW to pray, but that’s not what it says. It says ‘teach us TO pray. There is a big difference! It is not part of the natural man or even the half-hearted Cristian to pray’. It requires a certain humility toward God and a depth of believing that is foreign to most. And, for sure, it isn’t just […]

SEPTEMBER 30, 2014—EXCEPT YE BE CONVERTED—Matthew 18; 3

These words by our Lord are true, we must be converted and become as little children. And virtually all would agree that this initial experience is just the beginning… however, in contrast to what they say with their mouth, most Christians live as though they now have the answers and in a sense have arrived. They, very soon, after this wonderful experience fall back into their old ways. After all, they have found a good church and […]

SEPTEMBER 29, 2014—MANY WALKED NO MORE WITH HIM—John 6; 66

John chapter six records that Jesus had more disciples than just the twelve…but many did not really believe (vs. 64), departed and “walked no more with Him”. (vs. 66) Other than unbelief, no details are given as the reason for leaving, however, it presents a very real danger we all face in serving the Lord that can cause us to walk away in deception and not even realize it.

The true Christian believer has a close personal relationship with his […]

SEPTEMBER 24, 2014—THE TWO WITNESSES—Revelation 11; 3-7

John did not intend that the Book of Revelation simply add to the mystery of end times, he intended it to present a solution to the mystery. There has been much speculation about who the two witnesses of Revelation are, many believing that Enoch and Elijah would return and witness for a time before the end. But let’s look at it from a different point of view. Scripture says that they will witness for 1260 days […]
