Durability We all have hardships; we all have challenges, our own demons, so to speak. It is not for us to question God about these; it should prompt us to endure. II Thessalonians 1:1-12 (verses 3-4 shown here) We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that...
The Distorted View A blind man was brought to Jesus. At first the man was not completely healed. His view was distorted. If the only view you have of Jesus is distorted, you need help. If all you want is half-way salvation or a half-way Savior, don't come to Jesus. He went all the way for us; we must do the...
A Very Present Help Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. God IS refuge. God IS strength. God IS help. David, well-loved king of Israel, had everything one could want; by some definitions he had it all. However, we see in this verse his expression of his own need....
Which Is Easier? Matthew 9:1-8 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city. And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. And,...
Government by God Romans 13:1-7 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror...
The Goodness and The Pleasantness Psalm 133: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the...
Two Followers Off Track Rev. Jack Sprinkle visited with us; this is his message. Jesus sought out two men first, probably the weakest, after his resurrection. Do you think God doesn't know our weaknesses? Luke 24:13-27 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was...
Searching and Seeking Although we associate shepherds with sheep, that term can be applied to anyone who cares for animals. A shepherd looks out for livestock, counts them and cares for them. It is his living. In todays message the Lord likens himself to a shepherd. Ezekiel 34: 11-16 For thus saith the Lord GOD;...
One Little Nail One little nail–what good is it? Think about it. What would we live in if not for the nails that hold the house together? Ezra 9:8-9 And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that...
Stolen Property The Amalekites came into Israel and took property from them that needed to be reclaimed. Have you been robbed of what you had with the Lord? It is not lost. You can get it back. I Samuel 30:1-8: And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites...
