Novmeber 22, 2019 – Violent Storms Ahead

Violent Storms Ahead

 November 22
 Daily Reading – Ezekiel 28-31 / James 5

GOD SAID:

Ezekiel 30:1-3 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe worth the day! For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      Years ago, I was with a group of children, teens, and adults at a Bible Camp secluded in a wooded area not far from our church. Suddenly something happened and children were crying and screaming. Adults ran for cover. Some began to panic and their cries caused unsettled feelings in others around them. What happened? Did a wild animal scare them? No, it was not an animal. Did a cabin collapse or tree fall to cause this fear? No not that either. It was a dark cloud descending rapidly on the camp and strong winds blowing things around. It came from nowhere, with little warning. Some feared it was a tornado sweeping through the area that we were unaware of. Had we been near a radio or TV, we might have heard of its approach and been able to plan accordingly. In a short while, it blew over and things were fine. However for a while, there was a bit of tension in the air.

      Fear often strikes the heart of people during dark and stormy times. Especially if they come up unannounced. Repeatedly in in Ezekiel we read; “The word of the Lord came unto me.” Following each one there’s a prophecy of what was to come. Many of these prophesies, have been fulfilled, some have been partially fulfilled. Yet, not one detail has ever been left out. The prophecies of the Lord always come true as they are given. This leaves us to know, the rest are still to come. God says cloudy days and violent storms are ahead for the lost.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    With no plan for the future, many stroll along as if nothing will ever happen. To them, it will seem as if there was no warning for these violent storms. Yet, a storm is coming, you can plan on it. Live life today, but plan for eternity. To do so you must live your life in Christ


Are you ready?

Novmeber 21, 2019 – Value Your Days

Value Your Days

 November 21
 Daily Reading – Ezekiel 24-27 / James 4

GOD SAID:

Ezekiel 24:16 & 18 Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down… So I spake unto the people in the morning: and at even my wife died; and I did in the morning as I was commanded.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      How many years do you have with the ones you love? How many weeks, days, hours, minutes or seconds? The answers are we don’t know. We were created by God for His use as He sees fit. None of us know how, or when God is going to call us home in order for His plan for eternity to be fulfilled. Ezekiel served God. Doing exactly as God asked him to do. Yet, in Ezekiel 24, God tells him He’s going to take his wife’s life so He can make a point to the children of Israel. None of us know if in doing so, God may have been kind to her. Some of you are probably thinking, how could this be God’s grace toward Ezekiel’s wife? It may have been, had she lived, she may have been taken and tortured. Some men from the region may have done terrible things to her had she still been around. Ezekiel may have had to watch as someone he loved was mistreated, and maybe suffer a horrible, lengthy death. Or worse, a long dreadful struggling life.

      None of us know how, when, or why God may take us. What we do know is in Heb. 9:27 says “It is appointed unto men once to die…” That’s an appointment set by God we all will keep, should Jesus not return first. So what are we doing with today? This might be our last day together. Are we wasting it fighting and arguing? We all need to keep on living our life as if there was a tomorrow. Yet, if you knew this was your last day together, what might you do differently?


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    God never promises tomorrow. What you have is today. Use it to glorify God and let those around you know you love them. If today was the last day that you had to leave an impression on those around you, what impression are you leaving?


What will the impression of Christ in you be?

Novmeber 20, 2019 – Vacancy Of Leadership

Vacancy Of Leadership

 November 20
 Daily Reading – Ezekiel 21-23 / James 3

GOD SAID:

Ezekiel 22:30 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.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      God was looking for someone who would become a hedge of protection, causing Him to reconsider the destruction of the land of Israel. He was seeking such a one, but found none. Hezekiah and Josiah both tried unsuccessfully to bring the people back to God. And even though they were not able to draw people back to the Lord, they were able, by their actions and prayers to keep God from destroying them. But there was a vacancy of leadership. Not one prophet, religious leader, or royalty who cares about God.

      As I read this, I see something we all should be made aware of. Do you realize, you have a royal priesthood in your own home? Men, we are responsible to stand in the gap for our family, as Moses did for the children of Israel. We’re to build a hedge of protection round about our family. Wives and single mothers, you’re not off the hook. You too should be in daily protective prayer for your children and grand children. Wives, you should be bombarding the throne of grace for your husband. That he will be the man that stands where God can see Him. Not ashamed to be humble before God. A man who gives credit to the Lord, for all that he is and does. That’s what God was looking for then, and we serve a never changing God. We all have responsibilities in this world. One of the most important for our families are children of God, becoming the hedge in our home. Stand up for Jesus, and watch Him stand up for you.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    How do you build a hedge and stand in the gap for your family? Study of God’s Word. Stay in contact with God daily. Guard your life that nothing interferes with your communication with God. If you see sin arise, confess it and turn from it.


Will you be a hedge for your family?

Novmeber 19, 2019 – Verdict Is In

Verdict Is In

 November 19
 Daily Reading – Ezekiel 17-20 / James 2

GOD SAID:

Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      Society has found it easy to blame someone else for their situations. Courtrooms are filled with people wanting someone else to be at fault for their errors in life. For example: A lady spilled hot coffee on herself and received a rather bad burn. She sued the restaurant for not telling her the coffee was hot. How about the bank robber who was shot after pointing a gun at a deputy, and then sued the city for $6.3 million dollars for his medical bills. In Florida it’s reported, a woman sued FedEx, because they left a package on her doorstep, and she tripped over the package and fell. It’s clear that people want someone else to be responsible for their own errors of judgment.

      Well, according to scripture, there is one courtroom where the verdict is already in on who is responsible for where a person will spend eternity. When we stand before the Lord someday, we will not be able to blame our mom for our sins. We will not have our fathers to blame for our choices in life. We can’t blame society for treating us wrong, or the neighborhood we grew up in for the decisions we have made. It will not be about our gender, our race, our economic standard, our political affiliation, or the church we go to. Every person will stand alone before God and have to give an answer to why they chose to accept, or reject the blood of Jesus Christ for their own sins. Rejecting His loving substitution is the greatest of all sin. The verdict is in.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    Rom. 1:20 says; “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”


What will be the verdict on your life?

Novmeber 18, 2019 – Visual Problem

Visual Problem

 November 18
 Daily Reading – Ezekiel 13-16 / James 1

GOD SAID:

Ezekiel 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      You can hardly turn on TV anymore without seeing some TV Evangelist giving real preachers a bad name. Why would I make such a claim? Well, because they often claim they’ve received extra revelations that are not in scripture. It’s by claiming to have a word from God on someone’s healing. I never saw people in the Bible with telepathic revelations on others healing miles away. Jesus was the only one who knew the beginning from the end and could do so.

      I turned TV on one day and there was a man begging for money, (like this surprises you huh…) with a table full of pieces of paper. There were hundreds of them where people had called in with a deep need and a pledge of “x” amount of dollars expecting a miracle from their so-called seed pledge. This TV charlatan said, “In a moment I’ll be laying my hands on this pile and I hear in my spirit, (small s on purpose,) when I pray millions are going to be healed all over the world.” Right behind the man making this claim was a window. Behind the window were operators taking prayer pledges. In the front row of these operators was a young woman with a huge neck brace. If this man can heal people all over the world, why didn’t he heal the woman working for him? The reason is simple, he can’t. Nor can I, or anyone else. God can and still does heal. Yet, He never charged one dime to do so. Faith is not in your pocketbook. “Woe unto the foolish prophets…”


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    People want to believe in something so badly they’ll often believe a lie. Don’t fall for the fakes, fall in front of the Father. If you need healing don’t go to a coliseum, go to Christ. He still does heal people. Put your faith in Him. Get the Real Heal Deal.


Where have you placed your faith?

Ultimate Gift

November 16 & 17
November 16 – Ezekiel 9-12 / Hebrews 13
November 17 – NO Daily Reading

GOD SAID:

Ezekiel 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

   In hospitals all over the world, doctors and hospital administrators make very hard decisions about peoples lives every single day. One of the hardest decisions for them must be when they have to decide who will, and also, who will not receive a heart that’s become available for a heart transplant. They will consider the candidates age, proximity to the available heart, the overall health of the possible recipient, along with many other variables. Sometimes the denial is based on the prior lifestyle choices of the patient. Although given prior opportunities to change personal lifestyle choices, they had refused, and now find themselves in this situation. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to tell someone they’ve been denied a possible transplant because they are not the best candidate for that heart.

   In Ezekiel 11 it says that there are some who will be brought back to the land of Israel. It was based on their choices in life. Ezekiel 11:21 says; “But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.” Those who previously followed their own ways and wouldn’t seek after God, were denied the promise of Ezekiel 11:19. However, for those who turned to God and not away from Him, who sought God’s forgiveness, God granted them a NEW HEART.

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

   The ultimate gift for a heart patient is a New Heart. Those unsaved are heart patients, whether they realize it or not. God has promised us a New Heart, if we will turn to Him, repent of our sin, and believe His Son Jesus paid the price for that sin.


Have you receive that Ultimate Gift?

Unforgettable Words

 November 15
 Daily Reading – Ezekiel 5-8 / Hebrews 12

GOD SAID:

Ezekiel 7:26 Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      Listen. In the back of your mind you’ll hear the voice of your parents as you read this next line. Ready? “If you would’ve listened to me in the first place, this would have never happened.” You heard it didn’t you? The reason you recall those words is because at some point in your life, you didn’t listen to their advice. People think somehow, life has changed over the past few thousand years. Yes, we have more gadgets, more things to take up our time, and faster transportation. Yet, when we get right down to it, living is still getting up in the morning, doing our daily routines, and going to bed. The problem then become, what are our daily routines.

      The children of Israel had gone so far from God that their daily routines now included going to God’s House and worshipping other gods. Crying for false goddesses and burning incense to idols. Their daily routine didn’t include God, because in their eyes God didn’t care about them, nor was he watching. God told Ezekiel, I am watching and what I see makes me sick. He said, I’ll destroy this way of life, and when I do, they’ll want to know what the priests envision for their future, but the priests won’t know. If they had followed God’s way of life to begin with, their future was already mapped out for them. There is no new way to live better. The way to live better is to live by the book. To envision your life without God, is to envision a life full of misery and trials.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    Making a life plan must begin with God. He must be a part of your everyday routine. Read His word, pray, seek His will. Listen carefully. You will almost hear the voice of God saying “If you would only have listened to me in the first place this would have never happened.”


Are you listening?
