Civil Disobedience?

It is interesting to hear about people who feel that they can quote Bible verses out of context as a way of getting a political point across.  Perhaps they should consider these verses:

1FIRST OF all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,
    2For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.
    3For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,
    4Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth.

1st Timothy 2:1-4 [AMP]

God is our Daddy

Fourteen minutes of wisdom based upon the following scriptures:

For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to understand and sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities and liability to the assaults of temptation, but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning.  Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].  (Hebrews 4:15-16 [AMP])

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.  For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!  The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.  (Romans 8:14-16 [AMP])

Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.  For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.  Or what man is there of you, if his son asks him for a loaf of bread, will hand him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will hand him a serpent?  If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him! (Matthew 7:7-11 [AMP])

To purchase the freedom of (to ransom, to redeem, to atone for) those who were subject to the Law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us [and be recognized as God's sons].  And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba (Father)! Father!  Therefore, you are no longer a slave (bond servant) but a son; and if a son, then [it follows that you are] an heir by the aid of God, through Christ.  (Galatians 4:5-7 [AMP])

Classic Podcast: Goodwill and Favor

http://www.link2power.org/podcasts/2009_16.mp3

Show me a sign of [Your evident] goodwill and favor, that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because You, Lord, [will show Your approval of me when You] help and comfort me. [Psalm 86:17 AMP]


Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice. [Isaiah 41:10 AMP]

Don’t Do Things That God Hates

This podcast (http://www.link2power.org/podcasts/2009_11.MP3) provides seven minutes of wisdom on Proverbs 6:16-19:


 
16These six things the Lord hates, indeed, seven are an abomination to Him:
17A proud look [the spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18A heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil,
19A false witness who breathes out lies [even under oath], and he who sows discord among his brethren.

Proverbs 6:16-19 (Amplified Bible)

Classic Podcast: God is Real!

I saw atheist Christopher Hitchens on television revelling about the finding of bones that theoretically proves that man evolved and was not created in God’s image.  To that I reply, “Harrumph!”

God is real!

Schisms

1st Corinthians 12:25 says, “So that there should be no division or discord or lack of adaptation [of the parts of the body to each other], but the members all alike should have a mutual interest in and care for one another.”

But how often do we see just the opposite within the church, the body of Christ?

Jesus will return to this earth in power and in majesty and in all of His glory. Does that excite you? Does that worry you? If His timing isn’t what you would like it to be, would it be an inconvenience?

Classic Podcast: Elimelech

Elimelech literally means “My God is King” or “God is my King.” Unfortunately, this man’s actions did not match up with what he was called. Hey, we are called Christians -- but do our actions match up with what we are called?

Jesus is the Way Out!

Suicide is not the way out of your problems... it is a way into big trouble if you don't know the Lord. No, JESUS is the way out. Follow Him as your pathway to success and enlightenment.

Cement Shoes?

In Matthew 18:5-7, Jesus uses what some might call Mafia language, in suggesting that anyone who would lead a young child into temptation should receive the equivalent of Cement Shoes. Today, there are so many pressures put upon the youth... just don’t be a person who is responsible for tempting a young person into sin... or else!

Casting Your Cares Upon the Lord

Why worry and lose sleep?

Why worry and lose peace?

Why worry and lose your mind?

Cast your cares and worries on the Lord and He will take care of everything.

Psalm 55:22-23 (AMP) says:

“Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail). But You, O God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of destruction; men of blood and treachery shall not live out half their days. But I will trust in, lean on, and confidently rely on You.”

1st Peter 5:7 (AMP) says:

“Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.”

How do you do this?  How do you cast your cares on the Lord?

Abortion

The murder of an abortion provider has exploded the topic across America. But does murdering doctors fulfill God's will? Does picketing abortion clinics really advance the Lord's agenda, or is there perhaps a more proactive stance that the church might take?

More Love... More Power!

The church doesn't have the power today that it had in the olden days... even though we have greater accessibility to scriptural resources today than ever before. To have power, we must walk in love. When we walk in love, we can experience the joy of the Lord, which is our strength.

Work out your salvation with fear and trembling.

Philippians 2:12 (Amplified Bible) says:

Therefore, my dear ones, as you have always obeyed [my suggestions], so now, not only [with the enthusiasm you would show] in my presence but much more because I am absent, work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling (self-distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ).

Teen Suicide, Part 3

The holiday season is one of depression and suicide for many. The final part of this series of Seven-Minutes-of-Wisdom includes scriptures to help those tempted by thoughts of suicide.

Food for Thought

  1. Exposure to the Son may prevent burning...

  2. The King of Pop is gone, the King of Comedy is gone, the King of Soul is gone, the King of Rock is gone, but the King of Kings lives on!

  3. When Jesus said “Fret Not,” He wasn’t saying that you shouldn’t play the guitar...
