No Funeral For Jesus Luke 23:52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. 53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. 54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. 55 And the women also, which came with...
When He Comes, Will He Find Your Faith? When the Lord comes will he find your faith? Our believing will make it so. We already have been given the gift of faith. Luke 18:6 “And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell...
Pitched By The Family Standard Usually we look at the book of Numbers and say it’s hard to understand. It deals with exactly that—numbers.  It was for the Jews, but it has a spiritual lesson for us.  God’s methods and purposes are still the same and have been fulfilled through Jesus Christ. This is God’s rule for Israel...
When I Am Old And Gray Headed Years ago I thought I’d never get here. Now I’m here. It’s the real truth of the matter—when I am old and gray. Psalm 71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.  17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous...
My Father: Here Am I, My Son God told Abraham to take his only son Isaac, the son of promise, and sacrifice him on Mount Moriah. This was a serious thing. Sara probably sensed something. Here we find a lesson that we all need to be reminded of. “My Father.”  We hear a child calling out to his father.  “Here am I, my...
Two Sparrows Here is a meaningful scripture that helps us understand how God deals with man and the rest of his creation. It’s a simple illustration that takes a fact of life that coexists with us to teach us an important lesson. Sometimes we think there are so many people and so many prayers for God to take care...
His Sun; His Rain The Sermon on the Mount is a well-rounded message that never ends. It has just about everything we need to know to live right. The truth and facts are there about life and about God. Here we’re reminded of something we really know but forget.  It is His sun and His rain. Matthew 5:45 “That ye may...
I Have Not Sinned….BUT…. I have not sinned, but I have.  I have obeyed, but I have not. We want to be so critical of Saul, but he’s typical of our nature. One of our most difficult tasks is admitting our own sin.  We look at society in general and say “they’re lost and why in the world can’t they see their sin?” ...
Where the Lord is Appearing Now We have the full scope of the Lord, past and future. He appeared at his birth. He’ll appear again, and we’ll be with him in glory. What about now? Where is the Lord appearing now?  I want to read this entire passage, but I want to focus on verse 24. Hebrews 9:22 “And almost all things are by the...
He Knoweth The Way I Should Take Job 23:8 “Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: 9 On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: 10 But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth...
