April Fool’s Day

April 1, 2017

Today is April 1, and many people love to play pranks on others. All in fun. The Bible talks a lot about fools.  62 times the word fool is mentioned. Plus many more words like foolish, foolishly and more. It is a good Bible word study. The most recognized verse follows:

Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Salt and Light

February 12, 2017

Matthew 5 is about being distinct in character. How a Christian is to be clearly different from this world, noticeably different in a good way. This particular teaching was coming from the mouth of Jesus Himself. He not only said how we are to be distinct, but when we are, we are blessed with a true happiness & peace that only God gives. Plus He tells what we would obtain for being distinct. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Christ urges us to be a good example. I challenge you to read Matthew chapter 5 and be determined to be distinct in this world and watch for your blessings.

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

My Sheep Hear My Voice

February 9, 2017

“My sheep hear my voice” is what the scripture says, not “my sheep can hear My voice” or “My sheep should hear My voice” but that they do hear His voice. Note also that God directs His voice to His sheep. He doesn’t say “My intelligent follower”, or “the popular or kind”. No, He says, “My sheep”. The sheep knows the sound, the inflection, of its shepherd’s voice. So we are to know the voice of God in our life as a Christian. How does God speak to us, His sheep? Clearly He speaks through His Word. Read it, study it, and listen to it.

John 10:3b (KJV) “…the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them… “

John 10:14 (KJV) “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”

Transformation

February 6, 2017

Being willing to let the Lord change us is an important part of our growth. In Romans 12:1-2, God tells us three things on how we can partner with Him for internal and external change. 1) Present your life, your work and your ministry to Him, 2) Don’t follow the pattern of the world, as you might miss out on the radical changes He wants for you and 3) Renew your mind. This can be done by staying in the Scriptures and praying.

Romans 12:1-2 (KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.

Bible Studies for You

January 25, 2017

The Christian Life Study Outlines and Notes are the amplification of a ministry of over 35 years, both in the pastorate and in the field of teaching and evangelism. These lessons by Porter Barrington on the Great Doctrines of the Bible are simple without being ordinary, short without being shallow, brief without being dwarfed, positive without being over-formal and comprehensive without being complicated.
They were produced to fill a need in the life of the average Christian, to provide an incentive to know more of God’s Holy Word. If diligently studied, they will help to establish you in the faith and give you spiritual confidence.
It is suggested that you study the Master Outlines in the order given; one each day for fifteen days, and at the end of fifteen days, you will know more about the New Testament than you ever thought possible. This study is equal to an advanced course in Systematic Theology. If you review these lessons often, you will continue to grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..

They are reproduced for you to the right of the blog. Start you study today. You will be blessed.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Word Study

February 17, 2016

Have you ever done a word study in the Bible? Maybe it is something you are thinking about or have an interest in. Love is a great one to start with. Go to a concordance or download a Bible on your computer and just type in a word in the search option. 

Sleep is my word study today, probably because it is difficult to stay asleep because of a cough. Just a few verses to help you realize what a neat way to study God’s Word.

Genesis 2:21-22 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Proverbs 3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

1 Thessalonians 4:14  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

John, the Beloved

February 13, 2016

John was called to be one of the 12 disciples the same time as his brother, James. He was a fisherman also. He was called “the disciple who Jesus loved” in John 21:20-24.

He was the only one of the 12 who was not martyred.

Peter, James and John  had a special relationship with the Lord because  many times the Bible talks about those three to the exclusion of the other disciples. They were with Christ on the mount of transfiguration. They (along with Andrew) were with Him for the healing of Jairus’ daughter, and were also the inner circle of prayer warriors in the Garden of Gethsemane.

John wrote 5 books of the New Testament, John, First, Second and Third John and also penned the book of the Revelation. All written by the power of the Holy Spirit as is true of all the scriptures. He never named himself in the books that he wrote but referee to himself as the disciple.

John was exiled to the isle of Patmos and wrote some of the Books from there. He lived a long life and it is unknown where or when he died although there is much speculation about his death.

The study of the lives of the disciples gives us many examples of how we should live as Chistians. The Bible tells of their weaknesses as well as their strengths and shows they were men just as we are, with a love and service for the Lord Jesus Christ. It should inspire us to do all we can for the Lord while we have the time and energy.

John 21:22 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
