December 10, 2013 | By | No Comments

As we explore the true meaning of Christmas through the eyes of Matthew, we learn that His birth concerns: He will save His people from their sins-Jesus; He is God with us- Immanuel; and now we see He is King of the Jews- The Christ (Matthew 2:1-4ff). Read More

The Supernatural Season

December 9, 2013 | By | No Comments

I am always fascinated when I read and meditate on the story of Jesus’ birth. It is an humble tale full of the supernatural. When you read the Gospel of Matthew’s account you are told of numerous prophesies fulfilled, angels, the work of the Holy Spirit, dreams and visions, God giving us victory over our sins, the spiritual kingdom of God breaking forth into our world, and what I love best, Immanuel, God with us.

The Beginning of a New Christmas Season

December 6, 2013 | By | No Comments

Last night Beverly and I went to the Christmas Procession at EPCOT. Tears moistened my eyes as I lived the birth of Jesus. Listening to the music, singing and narration of Jesus coming into the world, I was deeply moved because everything was about Jesus. I was reminded of God’s unsurpassed love for the human race and me. I found myself asking the age old question, “Why did Jesus come?” Read More

God’s Call to Holy Living

December 5, 2013 | By | No Comments

The call of God in covenant with us is for us to be holy as our Father in heaven is holy. This is OT and NT truth. A major part of holiness is walking in loving obedience to God’s commandments. In other words, it is not okay to sin. Read More

God’s Call Not to Sin

December 3, 2013 | By | No Comments

Scriptures teach us that one’s failure to repent of sin will destroy one’s life as in King Saul and King Solomon. The Word also teaches the power of repentance, that through repentance God redeems a person’s life, as in King David. When one humbles himself in response to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, confesses one’s sins, and has a heart and mind change in regard to sin that is the key to freedom through the blood of Jesus Christ. Repentance brings liberty and sets the captive free when combined with faith in Jesus Christ. Read More

Lessons from Solomon

December 2, 2013 | By | No Comments

We can learn many lessons from the story of King Solomon, the son of David, IKings 1-11. Certainly, it teaches that God has a plan and His will for the redemption of the human race that will not be denied. There will always be opposition to His plan of salvation. Satan seeks to thwart it and will use anyone who opens the door to his deception to try to stop God’s mission. It is futile, but it will destroy many lives. Read More

The Power of Repentance

November 27, 2013 | By | No Comments

One of the most dramatic stories in the Bible is that of David’s sin with Bathsheba. David is at the height of his power as king over Israel. He should be at peace and content with the blessings of God as the study of his prayer in IISamuel expressed to us yesterday. He has with God and man everything a person could want. Yet, he falls into terrible sin. Read More

Fresh Revelation for Us

November 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

I always get excited when I discover new insight in Scripture, when I believe the Holy Spirit has given me fresh revelation. As I studied this morning I was looking at IISamuel when David becomes king of Israel. In chapter 7:18-29, David prays a prayer that has to be connected to the prayer we have been studying in John 17, Jesus’ prayer of new beginnings. The connection between David and Jesus are well known. Jesus’ prayer is a fulfillment of David’s prayer in the continuation and establishment of covenant with God.
