The Wedding Song Psalm 45:1 “…my heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.” This is one of the prophetic psalms pointing...
Our Bones Are Dry;Our Hope Is Gone Ezekiel 37:11 then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause...

The Work and The Effect Isaiah 32:17-18 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

Resting In His Love Can God?  Will God? As I said in this morning’s message, these are some of the greatest questions asked about God.  Another question is would God love me enough to do it? God does not exaggerate. This passage is from his heart to yours. How can it be?  What does it mean for God to be “resting...
He Will? I Will! Zephaniah has scared me in the past. The first two chapters are about the judgment on the sinfulness of Israel, of all mankind. It’s called the Day of the Lord. Israel had done what they wanted to do; they were beginning to feel the effects of it. The time of pleasure in their sins was beginning...
But Ye Are Peter is in prison soon to die. That is why we see the urgency in writings. The church was young and vulnerable, already having problems. The world tried to push the church, and the church pushed back with the gospel, love and grace. God made an apostle out of Paul, the worst enemy of the church. Each...
Swords Into Plowshares Isaiah 2:4 and he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. Swords into plowshares-I believe it’s written...
