Behold, The True King

December 2
Daily Reading – Zechariah 11-14 / Revelation 21

GOD SAID:

Zechariah 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

  The people of this world that we live in, have always sought after a god. Some will say there is no God. In doing so, they make themselves out to be their own god. Others look to the stars and science, believing that in some way, the study of our solar system, and all that’s out there, will give us the understanding we need about our existence. They have made education their god. While many create a god of their own liking. One that might look like them, or that may resemble an animal, or plant that they can see and touch. They create a god in their own image. Then there are the multiple religions created around ancient faulty teachings, or new age cults. Everyone, whether they realize it or not, desires to worship something or someone. Arguments, family divisions, national disputes, and even bloody wars have been the result of these multiple ideas of a god. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone would realize that there is really only one God?

    That day is coming. Through the prophesies of Zechariah we read; “And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.”  The world will speak one pure language according to Zeph. 3:9. God casts out all false idols and beliefs according to Zech. 13:1-2. Finally, His name will be the only name recognized as the eternal King of Kings. The truth of Deut. 6:4 says; “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:”

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

       No one has to wait for the Millennial reign of our Lord Jesus Christ to crown Him King of their life. When we remove the other idols of this world from our life, including self, science, and social idolatry, we can then worship Him as the only Lord in our life.

Is He the King of Kings in your life?

Best Money Advice Ever

December 28 & 29
December 28 – Malachi / Revelation 22
December 29 – NO Daily Reading

GOD SAID:

Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

   Money. There’s seminars, books and financial counselors galore on this one subject. Yet, the simplest financial advice causes some Christians to cringe. Tithing. A simple word that means a tenth part of something. This means ten percent of your gross earnings should go to God. I know already some of you are mad. But think on this. God lets you keep ninety percent. He could rightfully ask for it all and demand you live totally by faith in Him. Some say that’s Old Testament law. So is thou shalt not kill, but you seem to like that one. Thou shalt not steal, doesn’t bother you because that helps you keep your stuff. Getting never seems to upset anyone. It’s the giving back that drives them crazy. Do this for me. Take ten bananas, ten oranges, apples, eggs, and carrots and lay nine of each in one pile and one by itself. Now look at these piles. The pile with forty-five items is what God gave you. The little dinky pile with only five items is what he asks you to use to help Him get His message of salvation out to others. Yet, for some reason we want our pile, plus at least God’s banana.

   The next problem is where we give it. Some want to divide the tithe among several charities or different ministries. However, that is not what God says to do. It’s to be given to the storehouse, general offerings of your local church. Verse ten doesn’t say that about the offerings, just the tithe. Offering can be placed anywhere God leads you.

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

   Money! It’s not evil, but it can be the root of all evil if we don’t do things God’s way. God says here; “prove me,” or test me. What does He promise in return? He will pour out blessing from heaven on you. So, go ahead, try it. You’ll like it, I promise.


Have you tried God’s finance plan?

THE WEEK IN REVIEW:

    You can read a lot of self-help books. However, none will provide you with a Bright New Life, like God’s Word does. We saw that again this week in:

● Busy, Often Too Busy
● Before, Or After
● Built Strong To Last
● Blessings And Pleasing
● Behold, The True King
● Best Money Advice Ever

    The Bible is God’s Book Of Life. If studied, and obeyed, its not a self-help book, It’s a God’s Help book. It promises, and delivers a Bright New Life.


SUNDAY:

        Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs.

for the kingdom of God’s sake,
Who shall not receive manifold more
in this present time,
and in the world to come life everlasting.
