Listening to a friend.

Why do we have two ears but only one mouth?

Walking with the Lord

Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a rich man whose ways are perverse. Proverbs 28:6

Standing with God.

If the God was to stand before us now, where would we stand with God?

Made in the Image

God had to become like us, to save us and therefore make us like Him, as we were in the beginning made in His image.

Question

The Lord is asking; If you only had one more year, what would you do?

Religion or the Lord

have you ever given thought to the difference between Religion and be coming a Follower of the Way of the Lord?

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

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.

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.
