Justice 

Luke 18:1-8
And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:  And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.  And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;  Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.  And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.  And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

COMMENTARY 

Today we have a story of a judge who is “unjust”. The end of this parable finds the corrupt judge granting justice to a widow who simply would not stop bothering him. She does not find justice in her situation because the judge’s heart turns around, but because of her persistence. The question on the table is: Do you believe that God will give you justice? This passage promises that God gives justice to “his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night”, and that he will do it quickly. Are you willing to believe that today and live in a way that reflects that you trust God completely with justice? When we are hurt or wronged, and wish to seek retribution – we either take matters into our own hands, or we release matters into God’s. Let Him take the lead on justice, and allow Him to work forgiveness in your heart.

Prepare to be blessed! 

Guest Speaker Amir Tsarfati: Are You Ready?

Chooses Differently than We Would?

I probably would have said, “if they they drink like dogs then send them home and take the rest into battle. ” Maybe another reason we should pray about things before doing anything because God’s decisions often differ greatly from what makes sense to us.

Judges 7:3-7
Now announce to the army, ‘Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.’” So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained.  But the Lord said to Gideon, “There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will thin them out for you there. If I say, ‘This one shall go with you,’ he shall go; but if I say, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ he shall not go.”  So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the Lord told him, “Separate those who lap the water with their tongues as a dog laps from those who kneel down to drink.”  Three hundred of them drank from cupped hands, lapping like dogs. All the rest got down on their knees to drink.  The Lord said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the others go home.”

Commentary
The Lord can and will do much with little. Here we see God, systematically and deliberately, thin out the ranks that are with Gideon. Out of 32,000 men, the Lord sends 31,700 home. Keep in mind that these are battle preparations, and God is thinning Israel’s ranks. Reducing the number is about placing the glory of the Lord on display. This is about bringing Gideon through a fiery trial of faith that will produce fruit always in his life. Israel is about to see, again, that their God is faithful and awesome…something they had forgotten as a nation.

The Picture that Comes to Mind

May God have mercy on us all.

We all see and hear of the terrorism spreading across the world at a rapid rate.  I  think it is natural to get angry and to spout off our opinions of what we must do to protect our nation’s and our family and friends and even ourselves against this sad ideology.  We read the plans behind the ideology.  Plans to dominate our entire world and to force their religion on any who think differently than they do. Plans are already in action even here in America.  Our colleges, our high schools,  our government and even our workplaces. Men, women and even their once innocent children are trained to hate and to kill and to take down anyone who believes differently.  Most want Sharia Law.  If they came to America and really wanted to live in freedom then Sharia Law wouldn’t be what they want to see.  They would go to a country in which that lifestyle is dominant and they could live very happily.  They have a large choice of places to do that.  So we must ask why do they insist on living in a nation with a completely different set of laws?  Why is our government trying to change our way of life ?  Why is our government not call it what it is?  Why do we see people speaking at our National Day of Prayer, against Christians?   Putting the Christian faith down?   It is a matter of time brothers and sisters.  So, we must make up our minds.  Be ready.  This isn’t going to change.  This isn’t going to get better.  I  believe this will continue at a rapid pace.  As the scripture in Leviticus states, we need to prepare to love them,  yes, even when they want to kill us.   Be ready to share the gospel with each one.  I cannot help but to think of the book of Acts  when Stephen was sharing the gospel and they all began to stone him.  As he was being stoned he cried out for our Father in Heaven to forgive them.  He then died.  You may ask, why not fight them back?  My thoughts first of all are we will only continue to fight and kill but we will not win this war here on earth.  When it truly hits in America we will be far out numbered.  Especially when you can clearly see our government is already infiltrated by plan and will therefore not be here to help the Christians.   We all know we only live here a short time.  The Lord wishes none to perish but to have eternal life.   When we are faced with this terrible time, I would say to each one (myself included), to share as many words of the gospel and ask the Lord to forgive them and have mercy on them just as He has given each of us.  You may die regardless, but one heart just might be penetrated and sofened and might then cry out to the one true God.  The one who has the power to give life and take it and power to raise one from the dead.  Has the power to change the heart of the corrupt.  That might begin with love that we can show to one who only wants death to us.  We are only able to love because God first loved us.

Leviticus 19:33-34
“‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them.  The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.

Commentary
I can’t help but think of “love your neighbor as yourself” when I read this verse. Here nestled in the Old Testament law is a verse that commands love for all who “reside in our land”. Because Israel was once slaves and strangers in the land of Egypt, the command is to treat foreigners in their land better – much better than they were treated by the Egyptians. God can and will do amazing things through loving relationship and community. The command to Israel, and to us today, is of love – because God Himself is love.

Arise from Your Slumber!

Are you paying attention or are you just waiting for the super bowl?

One thing to keep in mind – the football game will be over Sunday.  Keep your eyes open,  watch the game but watch everything else going on.

A Christian Response to the Supreme Court’s Decision – The Heritage – Part 1 of 4

Amen! 
If you are a Christian then you have hope.  Our hope is in Jesus Christ and in Him alone!  Does America have any hope?  Maybe,  but it will take some major backbone.  This may be the last chance to change things but it will take the church!  Great sermon and just what I needed!  WAKE UP AMERICA!

Prepare for War

I am hoping if you are a christian that you are already prepared and that you not just say, indeed I am prepared but that you continue daily to always keep in shape for running the race and prepared for spiritual warfare.   You cannot be in shape 6 months ago and assume that without continued working out that you will still be ready for the race that is going to start tomorrow.   Daily we are in war, and this I am speaking of is spiritual warfare.

Ephesians 6:11-12
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:14-16
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;

Ephesians 6:17-18
and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

Love you all and God bless you and may God Almighty,  who was and is and who is to come – have mercy upon each of us and not because we deserve it by our own actions but because of the grace given to us because of the blood of Jesus Christ who knew no sin and yet He gave His life and suffered for the sins of all the world.  Romans tells us that the wages of sin is death. But, for those who believe AND accept the free gift that has already been paid for by Jesus Christ at Calvary, for them there is hope.  We have redemption in Jesus Christ.   God loves each of us and no one has done too much that they cannot be saved by Jesus Christ who was born and lived and died and rose again so that we might be saved.   There will come a day when that open door is shut.   Please don’t wait.  Seek the Lord God while He is near.

Please look at the world around and read the Holy Bible.   The judgements spoken of over and over in the scriptures tells us of God’s love for you and me and when nations begin to grow more evil because they have pushed God out He seems to try to get the attention of those who cannot see, so that they might see and so that they might turn from there evil ways and come to the arms of our Savior. The storm clouds are growing darker.   You and I could be gone today with a heart attack,  a car accident or something much worse. There is no time left.

Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ today and begin to ask Him to reveal Himself to you through the reading of His word.  Grow close to Him. When we read the Holy Bible God will give those who truly seek Him wisdom and understanding.
