• 4 DECEMBER (UNDATED SERMON)

    A lesson from the life of king Asa

    ‘Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.’ 2 Chronicles 16:9
    SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Proverbs 3:1–8

    I may be speaking as God’s mouth to some of you who are now entering upon a testing time, a trouble in the family, a trial in business, or a difficulty in reference to a contemplated marriage, and you are asking, ‘What course shall I take?’ You know what a man of the world would do, and it has been suggested to you that such a course is the right one for you to follow.

    My dear brother, remember that you are not of the world, even as Christ is not of the world; mind you act accordingly. If you are a worldly man and do as worldly men do, then I must leave you, for ‘them that are without God judgeth’. But if you are a man of God and an heir of heaven, I beseech you, do not follow custom, or do a wrong thing because others would do it, or do a little evil for the sake of a great good, but in your confidence possess your soul, and abide faithful to conscience and to the eternal law of rectitude. Let others do as they please, but as for you, set the Lord always before you, and let integrity and uprightness preserve you. Ask the Lord to help you. Is it not written that he ‘will with the temptation also make a way to escape’? ‘Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.’

    Do not put forth your hand to iniquity. You may, in order to help yourself, do in five minutes what you cannot undo in fifty years, and you may bring upon yourself a lifelong series of trials by one single unbelieving action. Beware of relying on Egypt and sending for help to Assyria, for these will distress you, but not help you. Cry, ‘Lord, Increase our faith.’ That is what you greatly need in the trying hour.

    FOR MEDITATION: (Our Own Hymn Book no.668 v.1—Mary Bowly, 1847)
    ‘Lord, through the desert drear and wide
    Our erring footsteps need a guide;
    Keep us, oh keep us near Thy side.
    Let us not fall. Let us not fall.’


    C. H. Spurgeon and Terence Peter Crosby, 365 Days with Spurgeon (Volume 4), (Leominster, UK: Day One Publications, 2007), 349.

  • A topic I plan to do a show in 2022:
    In the King James Bible #kjv #kjvbible the Word " #Christian " is only appeared 2 times and " #Christians " once - all in the #NewTestament

    Please no discussions yet, I just want to lay the foundation for next year's show, something that needs some serious study & thought! As a called Preacher/Teacher, I am fully responsible before the #Godhead to declare the whole counsel of #God & rightly divide the #WordofTruth!

    And when he (#Barnabas) had found him (#Saul, later named Paul), he brought him unto #Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

    #Acts 26:28 Then #Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.

    Please note & keep this in mind until I do that show, #Acts is a #History Book, from #Law to #Grace, from #Peter to #Paul.

    #1Peter 4:16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

    Peter wrote his Epistles to Jewish/Hebrew Messianic Believers before 70 AD when General Titus Destroyed Jerusalem & the Temple.

    Peter was at the Jewish/Messianic Church in Babylon while this was written (Remember 606 BC #Nebuchadnezzar of #Babylon sacked #Judah/#Benjamin and the remaining 10 Tribes that escaped #Assyria's sacking of the Northern Tribes in 721 BC as there were a lot of Jews in Babylon; remember Daniel was 1 of them taken (Daniel 1:6) and John Mark was with Peter at the time of Peter's 1st Epistle 5:13)

  • #America's Word for Today!
    #Proverbs 29:18 #kjv Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
    Amos 8:11-12
    11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
    12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

    As #Israel went apostate then was taken (the 10 tribes) by #Assyria in 721 BC then #Babylon took #Jerusalem & the rest of #Judah in 606 BC,

    America has willfully over the last 100 plus years turned her back on #God, #JesusChrist, the #Bible & even the #Constitution! In Fact most Americans REFUSE to study the Constitution and even the Bible.
    America has capitulated and cowardly gave in to the Fascist Communist Nazi Globalist Collectivist Lockdowns, Mask Mandates, Turning Firearms in giving up their #2a #SecondAmendment Rights, Nor forming #Militias under the Constitution, etc.

    The horrific weather, the Wildfires, Wicked Hurricanes, Flooding and the Tyrants, show God's #Judgment on America has long begun! - #AmericaUnderJudgment #AmericaInApostasy

  • GOD'S WORD FOR TODAY
    DAILY DEVOTIONAL
    REJECT THE ENEMY’S WORDS
    READ 2 KINGS 19:1 THROUGH 21:26
    There is a lot of negativity in the world: wars, rumors of wars, horrible tragedies, and people of position doing and saying despicable things. If a person were to really absorb all of the negative words floating around the world, he or she would probably crawl into a corner and weep in despair.



    Hezekiah’s people heard some horrible, threatening words from the marauding king of Assyria. The enemy poured lies and threats into their listening ears. The people remained silent, but surely some wondered if King Hezekiah was going to save them.



    Isaiah said to them, “Tell your master, ‘this is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid of what you have heard—those words with which the underlings of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me’” (2 Kings 19:6).



    No matter what new onslaught came against them, God’s people were reminded that God was their Lord. His Word is stronger and more trustworthy than any other word in the universe.



    Thought for Today: Listen only to God, and you will have courage and rest in the darkest day.

    Quicklook: 2 Kings 19:1–8

    RISKING IT ALL
    READ 2 KINGS 17:1 THROUGH 18:37
    J. W. Tucker, an Assemblies of God missionary, knew trouble was brewing when he and his family headed to the Congo in 1964. He had spent twenty-five years working among a people embittered by civil war and hostile toward outsiders. He didn’t know that a week later the missionaries would be cut off from the outside world, and shortly thereafter he would be beaten to death. Had he known, Tucker still might have risked it all to spread the Word of God.



    [King Hezekiah] held fast to the Lord and did not stop following him; he kept the commands the Lord had given Moses. And the Lord was with him (2 Kings 18:6–7).



    King Hezekiah was full of courage and confidence in God. He didn’t know if his destruction of idols would cause a civil war in his country or if his rebellion toward the king of Assyria would invite a military attack. But Hezekiah was so confident in God that he was willing to risk everything to serve Him. Christians today need that same confidence in God.



    Prayer for Today: Father, help me trust You so deeply that I will risk everything for You.

  • A Prayer for the United States of America, right out of the book of Nehemiah.
    *************************************************************************************************

    Nehemiah 9: 32, 33,35,36,37

    32 "Now therefore, our God, The great, the mighty, and awesome God, Who keeps covenant and mercy: Do not let all the trouble seem small before You That has come upon us, Our fathers and on all Your people, From the days of the kings of Assyria until this day.

    33 However You are just in all that has befallen us; For You have dealt faithfully, But we have done wickedly.

    35 For they have not served You in their kingdom, Or in the many good things that You gave them, Or in the large and rich land which You set before them; Nor did they turn from their wicked works. 36 "Here we are, servants today! And the land that You gave to our fathers, To eat its fruit and its bounty, Here we are, servants in it! 37 And it yields much increase to the kings You have set over us, Because of our sins; Also they have dominion over our bodies and our cattle At their pleasure; And we are in great distress.

  • The Pythagorean Theorem ~1000 Years before Pythagoras

    We live in an age where much of what we have all been taught or believe finds its roots in much older traditions, history, and mythology. What better example of this then with a famous mathematical theorem.

    The #Sumerians developed one of the first if not the first writing system and counting systems leading to education, record keeping, engineering, astronomy as few examples. Each following civilization/empire like the #Akkadians , #Bablyonians , #Assyrians , #Hittites , and #Persians improved, expanded, and refined on much from that first civilization.

    We are just beginning to understand how much of our current civilization finds it source from these ancient peoples.

  • This scripture fits well with 2nd Kings 17, as well it should considering who inspired it.
    Hosea 10 (ESV)

    10 Israel is a luxuriant vine
    that yields its fruit.
    The more his fruit increased,
    the more altars he built;
    as his country improved,
    he improved his pillars.
    2 Their heart is false;
    now they must bear their guilt.
    The LORD will break down their altars
    and destroy their pillars.

    3 For now they will say:
    “We have no king,
    for we do not fear the LORD;
    and a king—what could he do for us?”
    4 They utter mere words;
    with empty oaths they make covenants;
    so judgment springs up like poisonous weeds
    in the furrows of the field.
    5 The inhabitants of Samaria tremble
    for the calf of Beth-aven.
    Its people mourn for it, and so do its idolatrous priests—
    those who rejoiced over it and over its glory—
    for it has departed from them.
    6 The thing itself shall be carried to Assyria
    as tribute to the great king.
    Ephraim shall be put to shame,
    and Israel shall be ashamed of his idol.

    7 Samaria’s king shall perish
    like a twig on the face of the waters.
    8 The high places of Aven, the sin of Israel,
    shall be destroyed.
    Thorn and thistle shall grow up
    on their altars,
    and they shall say to the mountains, “Cover us,”
    and to the hills, “Fall on us.”

    9 From the days of Gibeah, you have sinned, O Israel;
    there they have continued.
    Shall not the war against the unjust overtake them in Gibeah?
    10 When I please, I will discipline them,
    and nations shall be gathered against them
    when they are bound up for their double iniquity.

    11 Ephraim was a trained calf
    that loved to thresh,
    and I spared her fair neck;
    but I will put Ephraim to the yoke;
    Judah must plow;
    Jacob must harrow for himself.
    12 Sow for yourselves righteousness;
    reap steadfast love;
    break up your fallow ground,
    for it is the time to seek the LORD,
    that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.

    13 You have plowed iniquity;
    you have reaped injustice;
    you have eaten the fruit of lies.
    Because you have trusted in your own way
    and in the multitude of your warriors,
    14 therefore the tumult of war shall arise among your people,
    and all your fortresses shall be destroyed,
    as Shalman destroyed Beth-arbel on the day of battle;
    mothers were dashed in pieces with their children.
    15 Thus it shall be done to you, O Bethel,
    because of your great evil.
    At dawn the king of Israel
    shall be utterly cut off.
