A King had to die

Written by | March 27, 2018 | 0
Filthy and poor me! What could I have become if not for the support of others? My burden has been made light because of the friends I have. Many of these friends have stood solidly behind me in times of need. Some of them, irrespective of their faith are nonpareil. Good friends are difficult to find. Some come to our lives as small devils to spur us on. Their bickering, bigotry, criticism, deceit, and disappointments help mature us in the University of Life. Others offer us consolidating, unfailing and priceless support at times we would have despaired without them. I call them, ‘Mortal Angels’. Permit me to share the exceptional love I received from a king. In a time when kings and leaders of the world draw strength from tormenting and sucking dry the blood of their subjects, I had a friend

HOW TO WATCH AND PRAY IN THE END TIMES

Written by | January 30, 2018 | 0
On the night he was betrayed, Jesus instructed his disciples to “watch.” This passage teaches us how to watch and pray in the end times. On the Night He Was Betrayed In our last article (READ HERE), we went into great detail on what the command “watch” means in Jesus’s great end time teaching, the Olivet Discourse. In this article, we will examine the parallels between Jesus’s instructions to his disciples on the night he was betrayed and watching in the end times. It is a great demonstration of how to watch. In Matthew’s Gospel we read: Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to His disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” (Matt. 26:36) Gethsemane is a word that means “Olive Press.” And certainly, both Jesus and the disciples were

The Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Written by | January 17, 2018 | 0
In the near future, an unprecedented event of worldwide significance will take place. Jesus Christ will return. In fact, he will return twice. The first time secretly. The second time so that all eyes can see him. The first instance is known as “the rapture,” and it is the blessed hope of all true Christians. The second instance is known as “the glorious appearing,” and it is the fear of all worldly people who deny His divinity. Almost everyone has heard of the Second Coming of Christ, but few realize that the Second Coming is divided into two parts. The rapture will occur first, followed by the glorious appearing approximately seven years later. At the glorious appearing, every eye on the earth will see the Lord coming, and He will be coming to judge the people of

The Rapture

Written by | January 16, 2018 | 0
In the near future, an unprecedented event of worldwide significance will take place. Jesus Christ will return. In fact, he will return twice. The first time secretly; the second time so that all eyes can see him. The first instance is known as “the rapture,” and it is the blessed hope of all true Christians. Immediately preceding the seven year period of the Tribulation, Jesus will return for all those who have placed their faith in Him. They will be transformed in an instant, and appear before the throne of God in heaven. Several New Testament passages reference this event. The Apostle Paul mentions it in his first letter to the Corinthians: “But let me tell you a wonderful secret God has revealed to us. Not all of us will die, but we will all be transformed. It will happen

The Christ Of Christmas Is Coming Again

BIBLE MEDITATION: “But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto He called you by our Gospel to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  2 Thessalonians 2:13-14 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: You need not be disturbed and you will not be disappointed. Paul tells us in Second Thessalonians that when He comes, our Lord shall reign. The first Christmas, there was no room for Him in the inn. When He comes for the final time, He’s coming as King of kings and Lord and lords. Jesus came the first Christmas to die in the sinner’s place. When He comes again, Jesus is coming to receive the sinner to Himself. There are two

Three Symbolic Gifts

Written by | December 21, 2017 | 0
BIBLE MEDITATION: “When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary, His mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.” Matthew 2:10-11 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Many people think these three gifts were just incidental. No, they’re fundamental. These were not trinkets; these were treasures that didn’t occur by happenstance. This was something the wise men had planned. These gifts are highly symbolic. They carry deep significance. In the gifts the wise men brought to the young boy Jesus, gold speaks of His sovereign dominion—He was born a King. Frankincense speaks of His sinless deity—He is God

His Sovereign Nobility

BIBLE MEDITATION: “…And the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6b DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Jesus was born a king. Scripture says “…the government shall be upon His shoulder.” In verse 7 of this chapter, this is fleshed out. “Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever.”  How is this going to happen? “The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” This little baby was born a king and He is a King. We didn’t elect Him and, friend, we’ll not impeach Him. He is King. He is Lord. ACTION

His Unquestioned Lordship

BIBLE MEDITATION: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11 “Therefore, let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified both Lord and Christ.” Acts 2:36 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Can you imagine what it meant to Mary to hear the angel say to her, “Thou shalt call His name Jesus”? Or for those Jewish shepherds the night of his birth to hear the angels say, “…born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord”? What does that word “Lord” mean? What did it mean to these shepherds? It meant “Jehovah” to them. Jehovah, God Almighty. When the angel said, “a Savior which is Christ the Lord,” the angel was saying He is co-equal, co-eternal with the

Jesus’ Supernatural Nature

BIBLE MEDITATION: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: The apostle John, who wrote these words, had lived and walked with Jesus for three years. He had seen Jesus in all manner of situations. Years have passed. Now Jesus has gone back to Heaven, and John is an aged man. As a Jew, John would have an ingrained resistance to any kind of idolatry. Yet he said of the Lord Jesus Christ that He is fully God and calls Him “the Word.” What is a word? A word is an expression of an invisible thought. You can’t hear my thoughts, but you hear my words; therefore you know my thoughts. You can’t see my thoughts. My thoughts are invisible. But my words make the invisible known to you. Everything that God is, Jesus is.

Word of the Father, Now in Flesh Appearing

BIBLE MEDITATION: “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: The educated man is ignorant, the strong man is weak, and the wealthy man is poor who doesn’t understand the true meaning of Christmas. What good does it do us to put a man on the moon if we can’t get God in our hearts? What good is it to know astronomy, how the heavens go, and not know Jesus, the Bright and Morning Star, and how to go to Heaven? What good is it to know botany and the study of flowers and not know Jesus, Heaven’s sweetest rose, the Rose of Sharon, who can perfume any life? What good is it to know the events of history, yet not know that history is His story? What good is it
