Driving the Vultures Away Part 1 Genesis 15: 6 And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness. 7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it. 8 And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it? 9 And he said unto...
Faith Passed On This was Paul’s last epistle and was Paul’s advice to Timothy.  Paul knew his time was about up.  He would be martyred by beheading.  He speaks about faith passed on. II Timothy 1: 5 When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and...
Think It Not Strange This is good advice from a man soon to be executed.  He knew his execution was coming because he was a Christian.  Those were strange, trying times and we see it again today.  It is frightening all over the world.  The familiar things and freedoms we used to count on are diminishing.  It’s always...
Taking Care of the Household Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. The strength of any nation is its families.  The strongest institution on earth is the home.  God instituted the family and marriage in the Garden when he made Adam...
The Man Who Wasn’t There People are most remembered by their presence.  Here is a man known for being absent.  The book of Hebrews uses the word translated.  This is what’s coming and should be the goal of all—to be translated.  To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.  I’d rather be absent and know...
Hanging By A Thread How are you doing?  I’m hanging by a thread.  Have you ever heard that or said it.  Most of us have.  This statement is a Biblical reality.  This woman’s family was targeted for judgment but she was saved and her household—all by a scarlet thread.  It still dangles from heaven and if we’re...
Casting a Shadow Acts 5: 12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch. 13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. 14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes...
The Man Who Volunteered Those who followed Jesus did so voluntarily.  God never intimidated anyone to follow him.  He wants us to do it voluntarily.  It must be what we want.  Years ago I saw people pulled to the altar.  They never came back.  The Spirit of the Lord convicts and draws; no one is beaten to the altar. ...
The Importance of the Word The most important book in the world is the Bible.  Others are important but none as much as the Bible.  The Bill of Rights and Constitution are important to our country and are being redefined all the time.  Man cannot hamper with the Word of God.  What we do with the Word determines the safety...
Our MVP We were blessed to have Brother George Salvador, missionary to Philippines in the service.  He showed a video presentation on his work.  He and his family sang.  He brought the message. Mark 8: 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what...
