Jesus is called wonderful, counselor, mighty God, everlasting Father, the prince of peace. His peace has no end. He is our judge and judges us with justice.
The prophesy of the Lord’s birth, in Isaiah 7 and 8, was fulfilled in Matthew 1. The wait was finally over. The birth of the Messiah had finally come to pass.
The blood of the saints will cry out against the evil men and women of the world. At the same time, God’s people will never stop praising the Lord.
Many things we are attached to in life are idols and must be forsaken to be in His will. Look at the second commandment, for instance.
When David started thinking about years past and how God was so good to him, his feelings started to change.
Being led by God is much different than being led by your own self and hoping or thinking you are saved.
John, the apostle, also knew of the glory of God, through Jesus. His eyes were opened and he saw “the Lion of the tribe of Judah.”
David declared, “Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.”
When the name of God is being dishonored, even our words, most times, won’t make a difference.
I have met so many people that call themselves Christians, however, their life is not for the Lord. They live apart from His will.
There was a time, in days past, that each of us lived apart from God. We did what the lusts of the flesh desired.
My destination was also hell. My old life was so far gone. I had no control over my flesh. When it was weak, I gave into the pleasures it desired.
It is true that each of us have a choice to believe in and follow Jesus. However, one way or another, all will, one day, “bow down before him”.
Shortly after talking with these two gentlemen, my walk led me to another awesome discussion with a wonderful young man.
It is a very sad day when a family member or friend passes away, that didn’t believe in God for salvation.
Come humbly before God in prayer. Confess your sins and lay your addictions at the feet of Jesus. Admit that you are a sinner and need a Savior.
Then Lord, You led me to speak to this homeless man. He was so angry because of his current situation and even thought you caused it.
I continued to talk with these gentlemen and saw, in their faces, how moved they were through my story.
The times that I am far from God are the times that I am in sin or not reading God’s Word. It is always one or the other.
Don’t be a phony but a warrior for Christ. When all your friends are going out drinking and invite you to tag along, just say no.
My precious Jesus. You are the reason why I live. Your mercy has set me free. The cross has given me hope for a new day. Thank You Lord.
You may have once had faith in God but since backslidden and gone after your own ways. In all this, your life is not over yet.
Commune with the Lord, anytime of the day, in prayer. It isn’t about numbers. God is always waiting for us to find rest in His presence.
When you give your life to Jesus, it is the most amazing thing ever. Your mind becomes invigorated in the Spirit.
My soul rejoiceth, for I am no longer dead but alive in Christ the Lord. I give Him all my praise and worship for I am saved.
One day soon, the wicked will tremble before the Lord in judgement. They may not be so keen to is judgements now but after death they will have no choice but to surrender to Him.
The Lord is my light and my high tower. I have been rescued from darkness into light. I was once blind but I can now see.
Come and be fed by the King of Glory. In any time or place in your life, give your heart to God in prayer. Just open your mouth and speak from your heart.
After preaching, I met this young man, who was with his friends. I asked him if he believed in Jesus Christ and he said no.
Some people would rather keep believing something contrary to the Bible in order to not break up families and relationships.
Most visitors left in their cars but some walked home. One young man came out of the temple and started walking on the sidewalk, near me.
