WHEN A PERSON SPEAKS; WHEN GOD SPEAKS

The other evening I was stretched out on my bed reading The Book of Numbers.   One begins reading, and immediately encounters that statement:  “Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first of the second month, in the second year after they had come outContinue reading “WHEN A PERSON SPEAKS; WHEN GOD SPEAKS”

FORGIVENESS

It is not without the providence of God that this subject follows upon the “two or three” message from Christ.  In fact, it all turns into one unfolding message! Jesus had spoken in the 15th and verses that follow concerning forgiveness.  Failure to deal with a matter means very simply that it will be dealtContinue reading “FORGIVENESS”

THE DEMONIAC OF GADARA

We are not always able to determine demonic oppression in an individual.  In our modern society we would probably desire an individual be sent to a Psychologist, or Psychiatrist, prior to acknowledging that the possibility exists that they may very well be experiencing demonic oppression, or even possession.  We have come a long way, butContinue reading “THE DEMONIAC OF GADARA”

GOD GIVES ASSIGNMENTS

The Book of Exodus is just as the name suggests with the story of the Israelites being sent a man, Moses, to lead them from slavery to freedom.  From the very outset you gather the “incidents” that culminate in his leadership.  He has a couple of assistants in the likes of Aaron the Levite, andContinue reading “GOD GIVES ASSIGNMENTS”

You could almost set your clock or watch by his programmed absorption with his attitude about time. I was speaking with anContinue reading “TIME IS MONEY”

WORTHWHILE PONDERING

A dear friend from my past had multiple sayings that he utilized conveniently. Among the many was: “My minds made up! Don’t confuse me with the facts.” I loved it because in working together it became his method of re-evaluating a situation, seeking input that would justify pursuing another direction, and then resting in theContinue reading “WORTHWHILE PONDERING”

GOD PAVED A HIGHWAY

No matter where I have lived, it seems that there is constant complaining about the condition of our high-ways. They have too many holes; they do not pave these often enough, when they bring them up to date, the electric, telephone, sewage or water company decides to put something new underground. If live in Arizona,Continue reading “GOD PAVED A HIGHWAY”

WISDOM

Years ago I heard Dr. Roger Andrus say: “Wisdom is getting to know things from God’s point of view.” An excellent statement! In the Book of Wisdom, Proverbs, the “Wise man” places statement after statement indicative of the wisdom that originates from the heart of God. 2:1 “My son, if you will receive my wordsContinue reading “WISDOM”
