    Ronda got a reaction from Alan in The Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus   
    Brother Alan, A wonderful devotional message!  There was only one sentence with which I grappled (I tried to use the "quote this" option, but for some reason it was unavailable, so I copied/pasted your words instead): " Every man has a will and God wants our sacrifice to come from the voluntary will of the individual. "
    I'm not sure exactly what you are saying here. I don't think of the things we do for the Lord as a sacrifice, but as a willing desire to do so (led by the Holy Spirit).  For instance I "gave up" secular television, it didn't feel like a sacrifice to me, but I believe I was being led by the Holy Spirit to "flee from that evil" .I don't miss it...matter of fact I'm ashamed I ever watched worldly television and wasted any time doing so. So it doesn't seem to me to be a sacrifice.  That's just a small example. I am certainly not trying to pick apart your above study. I was just wondering what you meant by the word "sacrifice" and could you please give me some examples so I can understand what sacrifices you speak of. I agree with the rest of the devotional, and especially the concluding thoughts on accepting Jesus' atoning sacrifice and having a heart of thankfulness.  No disrespect intended, I truly just need clarification. Thank you! And God bless you and your family as you serve the Lord.

    One of my favorites as well.  Truly praising the Lord in song, as hymns should be. Imagine.... when one day we shall also be in the presence of the Holy One and I believe we will be in awe beyond description... at His holiness, His righteousness, His pureness and goodness. I believe we will fall down stunned by the true holiness of Him and worship Him with an understanding we never could fully grasp in these human bodies. He truly does deserve our reverence. Sadly I believe that very reverence is lacking in today's "modern professing christian", where the focus has been taken off of God and mistakenly placed on mankind's "feelings" and worldly desires.  I am eagerly awaiting the blessed hope and the desire to be away from all the evil sinfulness of this world. Imagine being in the very presence of He who never sinned! As we ourselves and those around us in glorified bodies will also have shed the sin nature forever. What wonderful promises we have to look forward to! Maranatha!

    Ronda,
    Thank you very much for your comments. It is a blessing to my heart to know that the devotion was a blessing to you.
    I also appreciate your dedication in trying to bring others to Christ and His righteousness. As you stated, so many in the Charismatic Movement (the leaders and the followers),  as so caught up in emotions, seeking wealth, health, and the things of the world, they miss the eternal blessings of salvation and the righteousness of Christ.
    Keep up the good work in witnessing; in person and online.
    As always, I do enjoy your comments and testimony on how the Lord is using you in these last days.
    May the Lord bless and keep you.

    Thank you for the Chinese lesson as well as the teaching, brother Alan.

    And brother Jim, What a wonderful joy to have been used of the Lord to help lead Wu Cheng to salvation in Jesus! It's been a while since I have felt that thrill of exhilaration and pure joy that we get when someone isn't just interested, but actually believes and accepts Christ, even more when they (as had did) has the desire to evangelize his Chinese friends and family. (And as you said, his thirst for God's word being insatiable, you knew he truly had come to Christ). While there have been several people take an interest in God's word lately as I witness to the unsaved world, sadly, they are soon "turned off" (so to speak) when they find out that God isn't going to guarantee to grant their every wish nor fix all their worldly problems. 

    I spent a good deal of time answering (with scripture) questions from a secular  friend. She had (sadly) been watching a TV evangelist and was under the belief she would be healed and receive riches and prosperity in this life if she found a "prayer partner" to "pray in agreement" with her. It angers me greatly the harm that these false teachers and wolves have done. It was rather a long ordeal trying to deprogram her. And so I first started with the gospel. Sadly, she wanted to SKIP that.... and as you know we can't do that. Over the course of a few weeks, I then also explained to her that God doesn't work like waving a wand over us and fixing all our problems here on earth... but rather I took her to the scripture pertaining to eternal rewards instead. There is much more to this account, but in a short summation she really wasn't interested in eternal salvation, she (sadly) still was of the belief she is a "good person", even though I'd used much scripture to explain to her that we are all sinners in need of a savior, and all our good works of what we call righteousness are like filthy rags to God. I explained Rom.3:10 to her, and many others. I also explained that Jesus was the one and only acceptable propitiation (payment) for our sins, etc.  She just wanted interested... she wanted immediate gratification, and all her worldly problems fixed "right now". She'd been brainwashed by the TV evangelist into believing if she just had someone to "pray in agreement" with her, all her worldly woes would be over :(   She wanted immediate health and wealth... she didn't want to admit she was a sinner in need of  savior, and there are no short-cuts to that! She wasn't willing to believe that Jesus died for her sins, was buried and rose the third day (1 Cor.15:1-4), in fact as long as she still thinks she is a "good person", it's not likely she will see her need for salvation at all, no matter the scriptural warnings. 
    And that is one of the "better" experience I've had of late... most often I am cussed out, threatened, given "facebook jail" (24-72 hour bans) for posting Bible verses that offends anyone, and mocking... always the mocking from those who believe their "god" is false science (1 Tim.6:20). I truly hope it is not this way for everyone, and that there are still some coming to Christ in the world. These are truly the perilous last days forewarned of in 2 Tim.3:1-7,13. Not just that, but a marked increase in those whom God Himself has turned over to a reprobate mind (Rom.1:18-32).  Receptivity of the unsaved is at an all time low that I've ever seen in my lifetime. And hostility towards the gospel, or even any of God's word, is also increasing greatly. Nonetheless I will keep posting the gospel and scripture to the unsaved world in the places they most need to hear it, it may be that I plant or water, and it's up to God whether there be an increase. 

    Maranatha!

    Jim,
    Thank you for your testimony concerning your relationship with Wu Cheng. We are very thankful that you were able to led him to a salvation experience with the Lord Jesus. Sometimes, as with Wu Cheng, due to their background, culture, religion, ancestor worship, and other situations, their salvation experience is often dramatic and life changing.
    It was also a blessing to hear that your personal relationship with Wu Cheng was a blessing in your heart and life. I am sure that you were a blessing to Wu Cheng as he was to you. A Christian Chinese as a friend is a wonderful blessing.
    Chinese is a very hard language to learn: both spoken and written. Deep within the history of the Chinese race is the work of God among them to bring them to Christ. Although written Chinese is a complex language; as you said, it is a wonderful language, and God has His hand in it in order to show His love to the Chinese race. In eternity we will understand the work of God in all of the races of the world and spend eternity renewing friendships as you had with Wu Cheng.
    I am sure that all of us enjoyed hearing your testimony.
    Alan

    If all of that is contained in the characters of what we would call one "word", what a wonderful language it must be. The lesson, as you have laid it out is the heart and core of the Gospel message to all mankind, regardless of race or language. Thank  you for using this wonderful example to teach of the perfect sacrifice of God in the person of Jesus Christ. Your post reminded me of what I write below, which I consider a high point in my life.
    Twenty years ago I had the privilege of working with a brilliant Chinese scientist who had been a professor of Plasma Physics at the University of Beijing. His name was Wu Cheng and we became very close during the time he and I worked together at a remote research site in Alaska. His English was poor and he felt a need to learn the language better so that he could communicate better with our staff and researchers. This resulted in my offering to teach him English and he, in return would teach me Chinese. lol...the result was a 50% success rate, he learned English and I failed in Chinese miserably.
    But through our friendship we became close friends, with him visiting my house for dinners and casual conversation about each others lives. He was able to teach me many things in regard to Chinese culture and I was able to do the same for him. I have had very few friends in this life that were as close as he and I became. This friendship and mutual sharing of cultural differences and similarities led him to become extremely interested in my life as a Christian and Christianity in general. He attended church with me on Sundays as well as mid-week services.
    In our time together we had many many opportunities to not only talk about my faith, but to actually hold Bible studies, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Before long his interest in my religion and walk with our Lord bore fruit. Our friendship, his keen interest in Christianity, as well as his professional thirst for truth as a scientist, was the mechanism that God used to bring him to Christ. His conversion was very obvious to me; he developed an insatiable thirst for God's Word as well as a burning desire to be able to take God's word to the Chinese people once he returned to China. He spent a lot of time devising ways to be able to bring Bibles back with him when he finally had to return to China.
    I thank God for the opportunity to use a working environment to develop a friendship resulting in the salvation of a soul that had never heard the Gospel message. Wu Cheng went to be with our Lord shortly after his return to China. I will miss him here, but rejoice that our parting is but for a short time. We will renew our friendship and fellowship once again in the land that is fairer than day, for death has given way to victory.

    Ronda got a reaction from BabeinChrist in Peace in the Midst of the Storm   
    The peace of God is something which cannot be explained fully to an unsaved person. What wonderful comfort we have with the Holy Spirit indwelling us and comforting us (John 14:16). When physical, financial, familial, and all concerns seem to be overwhelming, the peace of God gives us such comfort knowing that Jesus has overcome the world, and that we, through Him, have overcome as well. We need to always bear in mind that this life (in corruptible bodies) is merely temporal (2 Cor. 4:18). Truly a speck of dust in comparison to eternity.  I would like to contribute to brother Alan's devotion by quoting 2 very comforting and powerfully assuring verses which have been a blessing to me throughout the years:
    John 16:33 "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
    Philippians 4:7 "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

    I can relate to your devotional message very well. Is there a "like a whole lot" button? What may appear to be the worst experience or circumstance you ever endure can be the biggest blessing ever given. Relying fully on the Lord brings us into a deeper relationship with Him than we ever might have had if circumstances were as they were previously. Most of my life I THOUGHT I was relying on the Lord. But after certain events transpired, I realize now how fully now I do rely on the Lord for all things. His grace IS sufficient!

    Well done Brother Mike. Trying to change or reason with supposed Christians that believe they must keep the law, or one part of it, is like banging your head against the wall. It does no good, even though it must be refuted.
    I have a friend who is most likely not saved, but he will keep the Sabbath. He has to claim to be a spiritual Israelite in order for his arguments to be valid for him, they don't hold water for me.

    Scripture showing we as Gentiles today are not under any part of the Mosaic Law...

    Psalm 147:20 (KJV) 20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and [as for his] judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.
    Acts 15:5 (KJV) 5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command [them] to keep the law of Moses.
    Acts 15:10 (KJV) 10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
    Acts 15:19 (KJV) 19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:
    Acts 15:20 (KJV) 20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and [from] fornication, and [from] things strangled, and [from] blood.
    Galatians 3:24 (KJV) 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster [to bring us] unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

    Yes! This is a wonderful and muchly needed message!  Yet again tears of gladness water my eyes because of the truth presented here.  A couple of years ago I memorized John 3:16-21....(I noticed you included John 3:19 in the message)...and I've referred to that passage countless times since then.  What a blessing and encouragement the other scriptures are in this message also!  In and of myself is no good thing, but with my Saviour's indwelling presence...I'm a child of the King!  The more I'm aware of my depravity without Him (including the times that I fail to include Him and attempt to venture at anytime without His leading), the more I can comprehend and know the vastness of His love for me!  O what a Saviour!!

    Many times the storms of life are the catalyst that causes people to look to the only hope of salvation that can carry them through the storm. Peter is a fine example of Christian life experiences; though the storms of life may at times cause us to falter, our faith in our Savior God will always carry us through.  Ps 119:116  Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
    Thank you for this fine devotion Alan; we all need to be reminded that He who created and upholds all things is more than able to hold us up amid the storms of life.

    I have no idea how I missed this devotion back in November (no, I no longer go anywhere for Thanksgiving so I wouldn't have been "busy" as most are during that time).  I apologize! This is an excellent devotion, brother Alan. One of my all time favorite verses is in regard to peace. 
    Philippians 4:7 " And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."   This verse I pray often in thankfulness to the Lord. This most wonderful peace He instills in our hearts through Jesus to keep our hearts and minds... this most precious peace which truly is beyond all understanding and human comprehension, has  sustained me through many many difficult trials in life. I often wonder how a non-believer can possibly cope with so many of life's struggles without this peace in our hearts and minds! It could be why the suicide rate is so high among the worldly... the cares of this world can easily creep in unless we have the Lord's perfect peace in our hearts and minds through Jesus. It's not even something I can explain to an unbeliever... but I do try to tell them about it when witnessing to them. Such thankfulness for the peace of God. Also I am at a loss for words to describe how deeply this verse touches me.  I also love John 16:33, and it also is a huge comfort to know that Jesus has overcome this world, and we (in Him) can overcome as well.  Through tribulation, suffering, trials, and hard times... the indescribable peace of God keeps our hearts and minds when we place our full trust in Him.  2nd only to salvation in Christ, the peace of God comforting my heart and mind is what I am next most thankful for. 
    Again, a wonderful devotion. Amen and amen again!

This one by Alan was done in November and just showed up in my unread content today. I also noticed this on some of my sermons too, they show as unread content much later than I post them.

    Brother Jim, I also commend you on this excellent message!!! I like how very well it was tied together as well! "When you're freezing to death you actually feel warm all over, and don't wake up because it feels too good."  That's so true.  I have a relative (no names mentioned) who has to be "connected" to the worldly things of the world. Radios, TV's, cell phones, internet, games, ,etc. are not bad in themselves, but it's how they are used (and what they REPLACE) that's the issue. You brought it out so well! Anyways, this relative has in his or her home all of these devices (as do I) but it's how those devices are used which is concerning. He or she has to have some "background noise" going at all times day/night asleep/awake 24/7. At their house the radio is playing secular music, the TV is playing worldly programming, the cell phone is used as a means to also distract/divert from family conversation (rather rudely in my opinion), the games played are nothing short of evil blood lust. And this was many years ago when I could still walk/drive/visit them. It's bad enough that these things are coming between family discussions, taking the place of Bible study, and When did/does God have a chance to speak to their hearts and minds if the worldly diversions are taking the place of even quiet time to reflect??? How could they focus or even know what God wants for them if they are continuously bombarding their senses with worldly things? Could it be that if they had a moment of quiet/reflective time they may be pricked in their hearts by their conscience or better yet by the Holy Spirit leading? Could it be they would rather resist the Holy Spirit's guiding to abide in Christ instead of abide in worldly things? Could it be they would prefer to distract themselves with entertaining worldly things so they do not have to think about the fact that there are countless millions of people who have yet to hear the gospel? And that maybe just maybe THEY should be at least attempting to give the gospel to a lost and dying world which is going to hell?  Yes it's easy to judge people from the outside looking in, but just because a person attends church once a week does not mean they have devoted their life to Christ by any means. (Please do not think I am against going to church by any means, that is truly not my point at all). Yet this seems to be the common misconception of many professing Christians these days. Do they make time to pray (and not just when they want or need something for themselves?) Do they make time to fellowship (and not just at church)? Do they ever attempt to share the gospel?  And if you ask them if or why they don't read or study the Bible more, their answer is likely to be "I don't have time".!?!?!?  Ummm... well I understand working people have less time, I understand family life means lots of responsibilities that must be attended to, I understand people need "down time" and there's nothing wrong with (clean... if you can even find clean) entertainment in and of itself. But what IS wrong is when that "down time" is ALL used for worldly entertainment of one form or another.  Do we treasure salvation and desire to share it with others? Do we treasure fellowship amongst believers? Do we treasure sharing the gospel? Do we treasure Bible study? Do we treasure prayer time? Do we treasure Jesus Himself? Or do we treasure worldly things and entertainment more? I think that's a question each person can only answer for themselves. Matthew 6:21 "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." 
    Again, excellent message, brother Jim,  and very timely for today's circumstances.

    Thank you for your thoughts on this message and also for your excellent points made about "time". This is a sticky issue. If people like you mentioned could just prioritize time, they would quickly see that what is most important is being left out of their schedule.

    Ronda got a reaction from Believer (ish?) in The Foolishness Of Preaching   
    What a blessing this site is already!  I agree with your posting... let me add... "2nd TImothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine."                             Now-days it seems to be "out of season" and more and more people not only see the gospel as foolishness but are downright offended.  But even though they may not seem "open" to the word of God, only God knows each heart and mind.  We plant the seed, and if there is to be any increase... that is up to God.  Only he knows what type of ground it is planted in...Every time I share the gospel I pray and ask for God's will in in how the message is received.  I also ask for His strength to hold me up to continue to spread His word... even if it makes me feel as though no-one is listening, I must trust the Lord, for only He knows who will or will not be receptive.  He didn't say... preach only to those who you think might like to hear... He makes it clear, whether or not it's the "in thing" or the "out of season" thing... do it always!  So glad to have found this site as it seems the world is really crumbling, and I lack true Christian friends to converse with.  Hoping to meet some here.
