No One Is Stronger Than God 

SEPTEMBER 10, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

John 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    If you watch enough so-called Christian TV today you are bound to hear some Faith Healing Evangelists suggest if you are sick, it is because there is some sort of demon in you which needs to be cast out. Then again, if it is not a demon, you have some terrible mortal sin you need to confess. Some go on to tell you where their next meeting is going to be so you can come and be healed. (Hope you do not die in the meantime, because they also believe that if you sin, you lose your salvation.)

     However, this verse in the Bible tells us clearly sometimes trials and personal afflictions are not a result of our sin, or the result of the sins of others. The illness is also not a demon possessing us or even tormenting us. Occasionally, we are made to go through these things because God knows our character and that we will give honor and glory to Him even during these struggles. He knows many others may come to see Jesus by seeing Him in the life that you live in the midst of your trouble. They may have never seen Him in any other way.

     Do not fall into the money pit of lies which tells you just because you are in a bad situation you have lost your faith or have been possessed by some demon. If you are possessed by the Holy Spirit, a demon cannot get in there. Jesus says you are kept by the power of God in 1 Peter 1:5. Friend, no one is stronger than God. NO ONE.

   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

  Romans 8:38 & 39 really says it all. “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

The Only Way To Look Is Up

SEPT 09, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Psalm 65:3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Have you ever heard the phase “there is trouble on every side” or “trouble is everywhere?” In today’s world, it seems to be so. We turn on the radio and hear someone using vulgar language. On TV, sinful lifestyles are not only portrayed but also applauded. In advertising today, sex is used to sell everything from shampoo to underwear. Wickedness seems to prevail on the street, in our workplace, in our towns, and even now in some churches, which have seemingly turned a blind eye to the truths that are written in scripture. Sadly, with sin so prevalent in today’s world we find ourselves tempted, and yes even falling into some of this worldly life from time to time. However, for the true Christian this is quickly followed by a time of sorrow for our sin and shame in front of God and others

    The psalmist had the right feelings when he cried to the Lord “iniquities prevail against me.” His sin became an overwhelming burden to carry. Nevertheless, the last part of the verse can make the first part null and void by the blood of Jesus Christ.

    There are not a lot of places we can look any longer and not see sin, except up. Look up to Jesus. If you have trusted in Him as Lord and Saviour, the Bible says He is the Author and the Finisher of your faith. Ask Him for forgiveness, walk away from the sin in your life, and He shall truly, “purge them away.” Jesus paid it all.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    James Nicholson penned the words in a song by the same name that fits so well here. “Whiter than snow, yes whiter than snow; now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.” Even so Lord Jesus. Amen.

SEPTEMBER 08, 2021 – It Is A Really Long Verse

It Is A Really Long Verse 

SEPTEMBER 08, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Isaiah 61:1-2 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Would you like to know about a real long verse in the Bible? It may not be long in the number of words used, but it sure is in the time to which it refers. Isaiah 61:2 talks about “the acceptable year of the LORD” and “the day of vengeance of our God.” Jesus read aloud these very words in the Synagogue in Luke 4:16-21. He read up to the point of where He said, “To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD” and then He stopped and closed the book. Why? Well in Luke 4:21 He answered that question when He said, “This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” “The acceptable year of the LORD,” or the first coming of the Lord had come. These people were faced with a choice. Believe Jesus was God in the flesh, or believe He was liar. They made the wrong choice and tried to kill Him.

We today are still faced with the same choice. The first part of the verse became fact in the person of Jesus Christ. However, there is a part to this verse yet to deal with. “The day of vengeance,” has not yet come. This will happen at the second coming of our Lord to the earth. A lot has happened between His first coming and the awaiting of His second coming. Nevertheless, just like part one is a fact of the past, part two is just as much a future fact. So, what will you do with this truth today? Will you accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour, or try to kill the idea of Him in your heart and believe He was a liar?

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus. His grace was sufficient then, but many rejected it. His grace is sufficient today. However, He will not always extend that grace. Now is the time. Today is the day of salvation.

SEPTEMBER 07, 2021 – Human Sexuality Or Human Sinfulness

2021-keywords-modified-header-cropped

Human Sexuality Or Human Sinfulness! 

SEPTEMBER 07, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Proverbs 7:27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

   “Human Sexuality” is a term used today to make sexual sin sound more sophisticated. It sounds more scientific than calling it what it is. Adultery is still adultery. Living together outside the bond of marriage is still sin in God’s eyes. Homosexual acts are called an abomination to God in the Bible. A child engaging in sex with adults is pedophilia. Any youth engaging in what God reserved for adults in marriage should outrage us. However, it does not. Instead, we are told they’re expressing their “Human Sexuality.” This is just another way for society to hide the truth. The truth is they are expressing their “Human Sinfulness.”

     God so much wanted to warn us about sexual sin that He listed it as part of the Ten Commandments. All of chapter seven in Proverbs warns of the snares of immoral behavior. Sexual sin is addictive, progressive, and destructive. It can destroy a person through destructive relationships, diseases, and addictions that will develop and control you. It causes mental anguish and shame. The ways of illicit sexual relations and addictions are as destructive as any other addictive device. “Her house is the way of hell.” First, there is the feeling of hell here on earth, as people feel bound by these sins strong hold. Then, there is a real eternal hell if they never give their life over to Christ.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

  If you are involved in sexual sin or find yourself struggling with sexual addiction, turn it over to God immediately. If you are saved remember, greater is He who resides in you than all the sin in all the world. Only God can free you from this sin. Find someone you trust and ask them to be a prayer or accountability partner to help in this matter. If you are not saved, ask Jesus into your heart today. He can set you free from all past sin and give you strength for tomorrow. Jesus is the Answer.

SEPTEMBER 06, 2021 – Isn’t He A Jewish God?

Isn’t He A Jewish God?  

SEPTEMBER 06, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

  Have you ever tried to tell someone about Jesus, and they ask you a question like, “Do you believe in the God of the Old Testament or the God of the New Testament?” Maybe they did not say it in such a way. Maybe they asked, “Isn’t God and the Old Testament a Jewish God and Jewish book?” I have had people say before, “I never hear of Jesus in the Old Testament!” Another said, “I will only believe the words in red in my Bible, they are what Jesus said.”

    Friend, what a blessing it is for us to know that the God of the Old Testament and the New Testament are the exact same God. The God of the Jews is also the God of the Gentiles. Furthermore, in the red-letter words, Jesus claims the Old Testament was true. So, if we are only going to believe what Jesus says, we must believe the Old Testament is true and that all the Old Testament pointed to and spoke of the coming Messiah. Jesus was referred to in the promises to the Old Testament leaders and prophesies made by all the Old Testament Prophets. Jesus is the focal point of the entire Bible. It has been said that well over 300 prophecies of the Old Testament were fulfilled in one person. JESUS.

   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

  God said I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. What a complete sense of security we can have in a never-changing God. He will not treat us one-way one day, and then because he feels bad treat us another way tomorrow. He is just, fair, and true throughout all of scripture. He is the same God from Genesis to Revelations. We can have a wonderful assurance He will always be the same.

 The Truth Is Exposed 

SEPTEMBER 4 & 5, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Isaiah 52:14As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    The Bible records for us the days and hours before the crucifixion of Jesus. It tells of how He was beaten with a whip that had large pieces of metal or stone tied into it. With every strip laid across Jesus it tore large pieces of flesh from His back. During the time of which He was being held, he was beaten by hand and with a rod. He was spit on and had large amounts of hair pulled from His face and scalp, leaving bare flesh bleeding in its place. A crown was made of spike like thorns and was pressed upon His head which, caused blood to flow down His face. He was blindfolded, slapped, and asked to say who had done this. He was led up a stony path carrying the weight of the cross that was to hold Him up to His death. Falling under the weight of this cross, He landed on the stony path that dug into His flesh. Nailed through His hands and feet, and a spear thrust in His side.

    Is it any wonder that Isaiah’s prophesy says that people were astonied, or in our words today, horrified, to see Him in such a condition? To look at Him you would barely recognize Him as a man, much less King of Kings. Yet hundreds of years before Jesus was crucified, in a manner unthinkable to the Jews of the day, God gave a revelation to Isaiah of what would happen to the true Messiah. Moreover, it happened, just as He said.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Oh, what a terrible picture we get in our mind of our beloved Saviour on that day. However, what a great truth is here. God did not hold back the gruesome truth in His revelation to Isaiah of the horror that would come to His Son. Neither did He mistake the truth when He shares of Jesus’ glorious resurrection. God did not hold back on the truth when it was bad or good. God did the same with the truth of our home in Heaven and His coming one-day. With God and His Word, the truth is exposed. Praise God for the Hope to come. Keep looking up.

SEPTEMBER 03, 2021 – Toss In A Tip

2021-keywords-modified-header-cropped

Toss In A Tip 

SEPTEMBER 03, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Proverbs 3:9-10 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine..

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    My wife and I like to go out to eat occasionally. No fancy places mind you, nor dumps either; just a clean place to sit and be served a good meal. At lunch one day the lady who waited on us was very courteous. The food was delivered promptly and was good. It came time to pay the bill and I added the tip to the bill as I paid it. As we left my wife asked, “How much did you leave her?” I said, “I left fifteen percent of the bill.” She looked at me with the, I cannot believe you look. (Guys you know what look I mean.) Then she said, “That is not enough, you should be leaving about twenty percent with today’s prices the way they are.” Hey, I am sorry, but no one had told me of the etiquette change, and besides, did not the price of the meal go up too? Anyway, to make a long story short, I now try to leave twenty percent or more.

    I said all that to say this. When was the last time you sat in church, the offering plate comes by, and you tossed in your offering, then someone says, “You know we ought to be putting in more today with the way prices are.” I am sure that never happened. How about at least giving a tithe? Some people have such a hard time giving ten percent to God who gave them everything they have but have no problem giving a waiter or waitress a fifteen to twenty percent tip even though all they did was to bring them a burger. Maybe we ought to forget tithing and start tipping God. It seems we respect our servers more that the King of Kings.
   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

  Really, we should not be guided by a tithe. From a loving heart for God, we should be willing to give to the Lord through the local church to help tell others what He can do for them. The Bible says honor God with our firstfruits, and He in turn will have no problem blessing us. It is not the money He wants; it is the heart of gladness toward Him for His own.

Read The Owner’s Manual

SEPTEMBER 02, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    At one point in my life, I bought a minivan and a 100,000-mile warranty. During the time I had the warranty, if anything went wrong with my minivan, I would take it to the manufacturer’s representative to have it repaired. Once the warranty was up, (and as I am sure you are aware, more things began breaking after the 100,000 miles than before), I took it to another mechanic I knew. He referred continually to the manual for the minivan. When I brought it in and told him of a funny noise it was making, he got out a book, looked to see what parts were going to cost and what parts needed to be removed to replace that part. Why did he have those books? They were printed because the manufacture of the minivan knew what mechanics would need to know to repair it.

    Today our world is in a mess. People no longer count God as the one true God. Everyone thinks they have a better way of fixing things. This may sound new and unique to our time; however, it is not. Even when Jesus was living here on earth, people were rejecting him. They saw the miracles and still wondered if He was for real. We have the owner’s manual to life in the Word of the Scripture. He tells us how to fix the situations of life. However, people do not want to look in the book. Through the church and the Holy Spirit, God is still in the world He made. He is still among the people who He created. Yet they still are rejecting His advice. It is like tossing out the owner’s manual.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Even God’s people seem to be too lazy to read the book for advice. They want to have the preacher or television tell them what God has said. You must be careful. There are still wolves in sheep’s clothing. If you do not know the Book, how will you know if they are right? READ THE OWNERS MANUAL! GOD’S WORD.

Thinking Of Heaven

SEPT 01, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Psalm 57:11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

      What comes to mind when someone says heaven? Do you think of Golden streets, Mansions, Angels, No sickness, No sin, and No work? How about rain? How about sunshine or storm clouds? What about birds and blue skies? Do any of those things come to mind? Usually not. Why, because we forget about the first heaven, we can see right above us every day. Cloudy skies filled with birds, planes, and the wind that blows fill this wide-open heaven above.

     How about the Moon? Do you think of the moon when you think of heaven? Are your thoughts of heaven ever filed with Mars, Venus, The Milky Way, Stars, Planets, Solar systems, and Galaxies? This is the second heaven. It is the outer limits of space we cannot really see completely with the naked eye. The second heaven is a vast region beyond our wildest imagination.

     No, these are not what people usually think of when they think of heaven. They think of the third Heaven where we all want to go and be with Jesus someday. However, our Psalmist today did not forget any of Gods created heavens. He said let God be exalted above the heavens and above all the earth. We do not need to wait to get to the third heaven that we have never seen to praise God. Let us praise Him, that He might be exalted today above the heavens which we have seen and can see every day.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

  When we need to think of the magnitude of our God, just look up in the heavens and see all that He created and controls. All of which He is above and beyond. What a magnificent God we serve. What an Awesome God.

There Is Only ONE!

AUGUST 31, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Not only has God named Himself as Lord, which He is, He also says He is “THE LORD.” Not a Lord. Not one among many other Lords. He makes it impossible for you to choose another Lord because He says He is “THE LORD.” Reason then says if you follow anything or anyone else, they are an imposter Lord, and someday you will know this to be true.

    He also says there is “NO OTHER SAVIOUR.” Back when this verse was written they had many wooden and stone-carved gods, which people were trying to lift up. God says I am your only Saviour. I am your only Salvation. I am the only one who can save you and I have proven this in the history of your fathers. .

    Today we have several religions, beliefs, cults, and sects out there. Some churches today want us to all join hands and sing Kumbaya. However, the Lord says, “I am the only way of salvation.” We cannot link up with those who do not believe in this God as the one true God. We cannot endorse a faith that does not believe Jesus, God’s Son, is the one way of salvation. By supporting, or linking up with false teachers, in a way we are supporting them, and saying we think everything will work out in the end. IT WILL NOT. There is one God, One Salvation, One way to heaven. Let’s not give people a false hope.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    The rich man lifted up his eyes in hell and asked for water from Lazarus. Oh, how terrible it would be to have people in Hell saying, “Why did you let me believe there was another way and just walk off into eternity without the one true God when you knew the truth.” Be a witness. Be an Ambassador. Be a good soldier for the one and only LORD.
