Daniel 3

Daniel 3 Needed Afflictions “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” (v. 25) In Daniel three, we have one of the more interesting Bible stories in the entire Bible. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace, they had a unique experience; they had the privilege of walking with Jesus! Had they not went through the fire, they never wo

Traded Living Waters For Broken Cisterns

Jeremiah 2:13 God had shown His blessings to Israel unlike any other nation at that time. He had called them out of bondage from Egypt. God had parted the Red Sea, led them across dry land, and destroyed the Egyptian army behind them. God then led them through the wilderness for forty years providing their every need as they went. At the end of the forty years God once again parted the waters, this time of the Jordan River, and led them into Canaan land. God gave them the land and d

The Ark Of Salvation As Related By Spurgeon

The Ark Of Salvation As Related By Spurgeon The following is Charles Spurgeon's telling of what his search for salvation was like, using a very neat and encouraging illustration to get his point across. Have you found your rest in the Ark of Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ? "I could not believe that it was possible that my sins could be forgiven. I do not know why, but I seemed to be the odd person in the world. When the catalogue was made out, it appeared to me that, for some reason, I mus

Psa. 23

Psalm 23 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. (v. 1) The twenty-third Psalm is actually a psalm of praise. One cannot help but rejoice in the Lord’s blessings as he reads this psalm. It begins with praise for the Lord and His provision, and reflects this theme all the way through the psalm. It is prOBably the most popular and oft-quoted psalm in the entire Book of Psalms. The implication of verse one is that “because the Lord is my shepherd…” because He is, and because He loves,

Sons Of God

Sons of God Introduction In a depressed economy some people look for ways to turn their life around and become successful. The internet is filled with motivational stories of a path to success. In one internet search I found over 65 Million 3-step-processes for success. Most present a process for gaining a strength or ability and achieving a goal. The steps are similar (1) Believe in yourself (2) Gain ability through a process (3) Benefit from the change. Many plans are sincere but some are f

Is There Not A Cause?

Is There Not a Cause? “And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?” (1 Sam. 17:29) We all know quite well the story of David and Goliath. Many children’s books have been written to dramatize this passage, and yet, many suppose it to be a mere childhood story, a fantasy or fictional tale of adventure. The real beauty of the account is often missed, and often lost in the dreamy world of myths and legends. The real beauty of it is that the Lord will deliver us from the gi

Spreading The Seed

Spreading the Seed Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. (Hag. 2:9) Though the immediate text speaks of the blessing of God, and the lack of it, one cannot ignore the question he asks “Is the seed yet in the barn?” I wonder if the Gospel seed is lying dormant in your barn? Friends, we need to get the seed out of the barn; we need to spread the Word and a

The Blood of Christ

How tragic that we hear little preaching about the precious blood of Christ nowadays. This doctrine seems to have been shoved aside by the church for...who knows what? The Blood “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” (Col. 1:14) As we can easily see, our redemption is OBtained through the blood of Christ. We make much of the death of Christ, and the resurrection, but it seems little is said these days about the blood. So, let us look at some s

Forgiveness

Today I wish to talk about forgiveness. I think this is important as we approach Easter the time of which Jesus Christ died for our Sins. The subject of forgiveness is often not an easy one, there is often a cloud floating over us and it can be a very emotional time. There can be times of great sadness and anger towards others that have done wrong by you and this can often lead to a harsh judgement of them. With that in mind, I would like to start with a verse from Romans 2:1 which says “So you

Sin through religion?

Today I wish to talk about a real world issue that the media seems to cover on a daily basis because it now exists on a massive scale. We are all familiar with the war going on between America and Afghanistan that started with a deadly act over ten years ago. The sad thing is that people are using the word of God to justify their actions, yet this is not at all what God asked them to do. I would first like to Pray in for the teacher and children in France who were recently killed through an ac

Psalm 91

The 91st psalm He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (v.1) Many verses are addressed to a certain person or group, here we see that the ninety-first psalm is for all that are in Christ, God’s people. We all assume that we dwell under the shadow of the Almighty, and in the secret place of God (salvation). Thus, this Psalm, as most other Old Testament passages, cannot be cast aside under a new dispensation. If our Lord choos

The Necessity of Repentance

In the last half century, an increasing number of professing Christians have been teaching and embracing a doctrine that is not supported by the Word of God. That doctrine is the teaching that one does not have to repent of one’s sins in order to receive Salvation. The fact is, the Word of God does teach repentance of sin. In the book of Ezekiel, we read: Ezekiel 18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful a

Law and Gospel

Now we know the law [is] holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. It can lead us in grateful OBedience showing us a picture of righteousness. Which righteousness we have been given freely by Christ's work. But the law cannot make us right with God. Because we fail even when we do our best to serve God. The Law condemns us: the law tells us (Rom 13:9)... Thou shalt not commit adultery,

Wonderful Condescension

“It is wonderful condescension in God to hear prayer; it is bowing his ear.” Matthew Henry The excerpt above is from Matthew Henry’s commentary on Psalm 116. Many of you may have had this thought before. I thought it might be worth sharing for reflection or comments if so inclined. It brings to mind Psalms 8:4 and Christ’s condescension.

The Start of a New Year

II Chronicles 29:1-6 We recently ended a year and began a new one. No doubt, many people spent the last week or two of 2011 reflecting on what had transpired over the past year. Many people may have experienced things in their life in 2011 which brought about great change in their life. It may have been the loss of a jOB or the start of a new one. Some families lost loved ones while other families welcomed new additions to their household. As we looked back on 2011 we also had the o

THE TREE OF LIFE

A Tree of Life “In the midst of the garden” (Gen 2:9). It is the center of paradise. The central tree of beauty in a garden of peace. The fruit of the tree (Gen 3:22) They had to eat of it. (implies that they had to eat of it daily, not merely one time to have eternal life. They would live forever as long as they ate of it.) NOTE: Man was free to eat of this tree before he disOBeyed; it seems that he may have eaten of it already, yet the eternal life was not eternal, it

This was a short devotional I spoke about the day I was Ordained as Deacon

Take the Word of God and turn with me to Philippians 4:10-13 Pray Years ago I heard a message on sin, hell, and salvation. That Easter Sunday I realized I was a sinner bound for hell, unless I repented and started a personal relationship with God’s only begotten son Jesus Christ. When I did, I received forgiveness for my past, present, and future sins, but most importantly I would enter heaven when I died. My life has never been the same.

Why The Bible should be read and studied (my very first sermon)

This is my first attempt at writing a Wednesday night devotional, I was told it was pretty good. Let me know what you think. The Bible Should Be Read and Studied As time permits I would like to share 3 things about the bible that God has laid on my heart. 1st that we should study the bible, 2nd that the bible is the infallible word of God, and 3rd that God gives a stern warning to those that mess with his word.

Peter's Fall

And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of His disciples? He denied it and said, I am not.(John 18:25) For our own sakes we should mark the steps which led to Peter’s fall. One was l. His self-confidence When forewarned, he resented the Mater’s foretelling, and declared that though others might deny Christ he never would. When we grow boastful we are in great peril.

My Thoughts - Abandoned by God

If we will admit it, sometime during life, we will feel abandoned by a loved one. What I am saying to you that most people feel abandonment during their lifetime, and there are certain normal feelings that go with feeling abandoned or deserted. Those feelings are often sadness, disappointment, anger, and even rage. These feelings are all normal and human. These feelings are not necessarily rational or intelligent. Such feelings are often directed at the person who abandoned you. Sometime during
