Calling of the Lord

When the Lord calls your heart to follow Him He always prepares the path.

 

Road Ahead

We can't keep our eyes on the Narrow Road if we are always looking in the rear view mirror.

Going forward

When you put your hand to the plough there is only one direction to go. You can't plough backwards.

Job 19:25-27

As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.

“Even after my skin is destroyed, Yet from my flesh I shall see God;

 Whom I myself shall behold, And whom my eyes will see and not another. My heart faints within me!

Proverbs 13:1

A wise son heeds his father's instruction, and a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

Give thanks

Give thanks to the Lord.

His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of gods

His love endures forever.

Psalm 136:1-2

The coming King will be Eternal

The King when He comes will bring a Kingdom that will last forever, therefore He must be Divine and for this we can be very grateful. God Will Be King over All. And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one. Zechariah 14:8-9 Yes the King will be the Most Divine and Holy and His Kingdom will last forever. I look forward to this day. He may have been rejected by the people once, but never again. 

A King to come Jewish and will remain Jewish for all time. From the beginning to the end. Isaiah 41:4 and 46:10 and 48:12. The very King the people rejected 1 Samuel 8:7 will one day reign supreme over all the earth.

Our identity

Why do people long after leaving their youth still have to have the bottle in their hands to find their identity? 

God is alive

God will never be dead as some people claim as long as we exist in His image, not He in ours.

His love endures forever.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him, worship the Lord in holy array. Tremble before Him, all the earth; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; and let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.” Let the sea roar, and all it contains; Let the field exult, and all that is in it. Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord; For He is coming to judge the earth. O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 1 Chronicles 16:29-34

Proverbs 18:13

To answer before listening that is folly and shame.

Matthew 24:31

And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet call and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

1 John 1:5-9

This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  

John 14:23-27

Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word. Then my Father will love him, and we will go to him and make our home within him. The one who doesn’t love me doesn’t keep my words. The words that you’re hearing me say are not mine, but come from the Father who sent me.

“I have told you this while I am still with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything that I have told you. I’m leaving you at peace. I’m giving you my own peace. I’m not giving it to you as the world gives. So don’t let your hearts be troubled, and don’t be afraid.

Churches and Abortion

A friend told me of the abortion stand of the SDA church so I decided to check it out for myself. What I found was a total use of scripture to say abortion was not wrong and confirmed by the teachings of Ellen White. They accused the anti abortion church groups of making man made rules to abortion is wrong and then use the teachings of Ellen White to justify their stand. They ignore the fact and even twist; you shall not kill to say it is not conclusive on the subject, as Moses didn't mention it. They also ignore God hates the death of the innocent, how innocent is an unborn child. Then the writer went on to say the baby, or whatever he called it, there was no evidence in the Bible it was a life. How can churches who say they confess Jesus as Lord then turn around and say any abortion is alright and try to back their stand by using Gods word. The word does not say anything on wife beating, but we know it is morally wrong. The Bible says nothing about the locking up of a spouse so they can’t leave the home but we no it is wrong. Are they saying these are OK? So why do churches say abortion is OK, when it is clear the unborn child is a living being. Just look at a ultra-sound and watch the beating heart. SDA church and any other church who condones abortions for any reason is clearly wrong according to the word of God. As someone once said; how can you justify killing thousands because of the case of a few? 

Abortion is done without a thought.

Imagine you are driving on a foggy night and you see a dark figure ahead. It could be a fallen branch. It might even be a little deer, or, God forbid, a little child. Do you keep on driving full speed and crash through it, or put on the brakes? If you think it might be a human person, either dead or alive, what should you do?

Most of us would say that even if we are uncertain, we should stop and check. We should give the benefit of the doubt to something that might be human, and, if it is, treat it with care.

God's Love

God's love is greater than our sin.

Knowledge

People seek knowledge in an attempt to know Jesus. But if we get to know Him then the knowledge will come.

All those for the Lord?

Are we going to stand with the Lord or stand against Him. To botcott Israel is to boycott the Word of God.
