IN DUST AND ASHES

Just try to imagine how distraught Job must have felt after this confrontation. The Book of Job is believed to probably be the oldest Book of recorded Scripture!  Not being one of those intellectual giants of academy, I must find it within myself to be satisfied with their conclusions. Recall the story of Job!  HeContinue reading “IN DUST AND ASHES”

THINGS AT THEIR WORST

What we discover is that David has the assurance that what is about to take place is God’s intercession. We all are faced with situations that seem to be the worst ever.  In all probability David found himself immersed in situation of this nature.  Absalom, his son, was attempting to remove David as king, andContinue reading “THINGS AT THEIR WORST”

HE IS SEEKING YOU

Is it possible that you have been unaware that God is seeking you?  Some may have an idea about God, whereas there is not a comprehension of that personal and intimate relationship that can be established.  It is to that end that we address some thoughts from the Gospel of Luke, chapter 15. Doctor LukeContinue reading “HE IS SEEKING YOU”

SUFFICIENT GRACE

Life seems so complicated at times.  We present our requests to God, and the next thing we encounter is a complicity of negative experiences!  Sometimes it may only be one, but nevertheless, it is there staring me straight in the face; an accident, a death, a financial downfall, sickness, a family break-up—the list is impossibleContinue reading “SUFFICIENT GRACE”

WHEN GOD SEEMS SILENT

On occasion I have thought to myself, “Why have I been praying? “  God does not seem to be listening to my prayers!  It appears that He has forgotten that I exist; in fact, I am discouraged to the extent that I do not “feel” like approaching Him, because I have asked again and againContinue reading “WHEN GOD SEEMS SILENT”

WHETHER WE ADMIT IT OR NOT

It is probable that we have heard of Daniel and his ability to interpret dreams; if for no other reason our understanding of his experience in the lion’s den.  It is so extraordinary that it seems to have been repeated for more than 2600 years. Few of us, if any, would have equaled something of thisContinue reading “WHETHER WE ADMIT IT OR NOT”

A WORLD IN MOTION – PART 3

A star in motion … Wise men in motion … Herod in motion … Joseph-Mary in motion … More wise men in motion … Angels in motion … Shepherds in motion … A Child in motion… And all because God was in motion! A prophetic promise had been made to men by God (Genesis 3:15)Continue reading “A WORLD IN MOTION – PART 3”

GOD HAS SPOKEN

The Book of Hebrews is particularly written to Hebrews, yet it unfolds truths that are equally important for every Christian.  There are always those who like to argue concerning authorship, or some portion of its contents.  However, as we read its contents and interpret them in light of the other books of the Bible, weContinue reading “GOD HAS SPOKEN”

GOD USES UNUSUAL PEOPLE

Every so often you meet a person that you think to yourself, “My, what God could do with that person!  He has such a personality, and his ability to communicate is beyond the normal; wow!”  You meet another who you are convinced: “What a “nice” individual!  However, I doubt that he or she will getContinue reading “GOD USES UNUSUAL PEOPLE”

I WILL SEND MY BELOVED

There are those who will always challenge the conclusion to which we adhere:  God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who exists in the form of a trinity.  He is a unified personality who cannot be divided into different parts. (Deut. 6:4; Isa. 44:6; Jer. 10:19; Mark 12:29; 1 Thess. 1:9; 1 Tim. 2:5) TheContinue reading “I WILL SEND MY BELOVED”
