When the Lord Says Go - Numbers 10
Numbers 10 May 17, 2018 The cloud of the Lord was taken up and as the Lord had commanded the tribes of Israel broke camp and journeyed.  Each one in the order prescribed by God with their banners before them.

Dedicated unto the Lord - Numbers 6

Dedicated unto the Lord - Numbers 6
Numbers 6 May 13, 2018 The Nazarite vow is explained in this chapter and it was an individual that "separated" themselves unto the Lord. They abstained from wine (or similar drinks), a razor touching their head and touching a dead body. This vow continued for a period of time or possibly the individual's entire life.  What is awe-inspiring, is...

Chief Physician - Numbers 5

Chief Physician - Numbers 5
Number 5 May 12, 2018 It could possibly be misconstrued that the Lord has no compassion for the leper or those that are defiled by touching the dead.  But the Lord knows how to save His people, not just from spiritual death, or of matters of the soul, heart, and mind.  But the Lord knows to conduct the nature of our physical life.  H...

Counted Worthy - Numbers 4

Counted Worthy - Numbers 4
Number 4 May 11, 2018 Each of the Levites were numbered according to the service (job) they were assigned.  They had a burden to carry.  Our first thought might be when we hear the word " burden " is to think of something difficult or hard to bare.  Really it simply means they had something to CARRY .  This tabernacle was MOBILE...

Redeemed by the Blood - Numbers 3

Redeemed by the Blood - Numbers 3
Numbers 3 May 10, 2018 The Lord truly sees the end from the beginning and all things have a purpose and a plan. It is so cliche to say that but it is the absolute truth.  We read here in Number 3 that the Levites (the tribe chosen to care and minister in the tabernacle) were set apart according to the number of 1st born that were spared in Egy...

Onward Christian Soldiers
Number 2 May 9, 2018 When I served in the U.S. Air Force during the 60's there were occasions when the squadrons, flights and companies would be required to gather on the parade grounds. Thousands of airmen would be grouped into their respective units neatly uniformed. Out in front of each section was an airman holding a long lance with a banner at...

Just Hold On

Just Hold On
Jude May 6, 2018 Sometimes it is plain "needful" to be reminded that this walk, this belief is a fight. But really, it's not a question of whether we will win or lose.  Will we be the victor?  Will my opponent be subdued?  Will I be strong enough to overcome?   These are not the questions, because ALL of God'...

Just Before The Dawn

Just Before The Dawn

How often have you had the experience that just when you have stretched out your faith to believe God for something out of nowhere comes a circumstance that kicks your feet right out from under you?   

 

How often have you had the experience that just when you have stretched out your faith to believe God for something out of nowhere comes a circumstance that kicks your feet right out from under you?    

Faith has risen in your heart to a high pitch when you hear the clanging of the enemy telling you it won’t happen.  We have all heard the saying that “it is darkest before the dawn”.  Think about the when you needed something so bad but you were running out of time.

The Tale of Two Men

The Tale of Two Men
III John May 5, 2018 So much is said about serving God in this brief chapter.  John compliments Gaius because he has demonstrated out of a pure heart how to serve the Lord.  His soul has "prospered" in that the love Gaius has shown is spoken about by many of his peers.  The prayer of John is that Gaius would also prosper materially a...

Love = Obedience

Love = Obedience
II John May 4, 2018 Love is heavily talked about in all of John's letters and in this chapter, John does not let up. I especially like verse 6, "..this is love, that we walk after His commandments..."  At different times during the course of our life, and even during the course of a day, we look at ourselves and examine our "status" with God.&...

When You Love What You Do

When You Love What You Do
I John 5 May 3, 2018 Choose a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life!  Isn't that how the expression goes?  And true it is.  There is such a huge difference when there is love and passion for a thing versus obligation.   John points out in verse 3 that when there is true love for God, following His commandmen...

In the Mind of a Child

In the Mind of a Child
I John 4 May 2, 2018 In reading these chapters in 1st John, I was reminded of the mind of a child.  A child makes a decision without the cumbersome list of facts, caveats and contingencies we as adults consider.  The warm embrace of a parent or the snuggle of a teddy is all they need to feel secure.  John seems to cut through the fog...

Like the Layers of an Onion

Like the Layers of an Onion
I John 3 May 1, 2018 We have all heard the analogy of something being like the "layers of an onion".  With each layer that is peeled back another layer appears. It is manifestly event that our own human nature is very much like that.  Why do we get our feelings hurt?  Why do we get so upset about some things?  What caused us to ...

Our Actions Are Doing The Talking

Our Actions Are Doing the Talking
I John 2 April 30, 2018 ​Eventually, the truth always comes out in people.  It's so easy to be dazzled by eloquent words, beautiful metaphors, great words of wisdom that seem as if one is the wisest person in the world and the intellect and understanding of God knows no bounds.  However, with all of the glimmer and shine a person can do t...

Full JOY

Full JOY
I John 1 April 29, 2018 These things we write unto that your JOY may be full!  The never ending search for JOY is right here in God's Word.  The Apostle John opens up his letter with a clear layout of his purpose (and really it's God purpose) in writing this letter.  And one of those reasons is that your joy may be full. Full joy?&nb...

It’s All About The Math (II Peter 1)

It’s All About The Math (II Peter 1)

Janette and I have visited Kennedy Space Center (NASA) a couple of times while in Florida.  Each time I was awestruck at the amazing feat these engineers accomplished.  Those early launches in the 60’s were not done by a bunch of guys with Ph.D’s (doctorates).  They were really just “math geeks” with crew cuts and a pocket protector full of mechanical pencils.  When they put the pencil to the paper they came up with solutions to how to get a man to the moon and back.  They just focused on the math and did absolutely magnificent things. 

 

In this chapter of 2nd Peter we find the math problem that gives us true success in our life. It does not use algebra or geometry.  It is a simple addition problem.  Add virtue to faith, then add knowledge to that sum.  Take that answer and add temperance.  Don’t stop yet because the answer you really need takes patience.  So add that in.  Keep on adding godliness, brotherly kindness and the answer appears!  There it is.....LOVE.  The Word of God says we must love the Lord with all our being and we must do the same for those around us.  Most of the time it seems harder than getting to the moon.

God’s Faithful Promise

God’s Faithful Promise
II Peter 3 April 28, 2018 Such beautiful and encouraging words Peter has for the Church here in his epistles.  Yet the crowning jewel, the final epitaph, he wishes to leave with his readers in chapter 3 is so simple yet so powerful. How could someone such as this great Apostle sum up the theme of his entire life and ministry?  How ca...
