  • Good morning brothers and sisters and it is during some very interesting times that I write this to you. It seems like some people are not being judged rightly. We have politicians and leaders who are seemingly getting away with murder in our world. We also have some needlessly losing their lives for sharing the truth such as the Former Prime Minister of Japan. He was outspoken about the need for Taiwan to remain its own sovereign nation. It cost him his life. It makes me wonder what the Smart Book has to say for us today;
    Unjust Judgments Rebuked.
    A Psalm of Asaph.
    82 God stands in the divine assembly;
    He judges among the gods (divine beings).
    2
    How long will you judge unjustly
    And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.
    3
    Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
    Do justice and maintain the rights of the afflicted and destitute.
    4
    Rescue the weak and needy;
    Rescue them from the hand of the wicked.
    5
    The rulers do not know nor do they understand;
    They walk on in the darkness [of complacent satisfaction];
    All the foundations of the earth [the fundamental principles of the administration of justice] are shaken.
    6
    I said, “You are [a]gods;
    Indeed, all of you are sons of the Most High.
    7
    “Nevertheless you will die like men
    And fall like any one of the princes.”
    8
    Arise, O God, judge the earth!
    For to You belong all the nations.
    Footnotes
    a. Psalm 82:6 Most of the ancient rabbis understood the idea of “gods” referring to judges, but some applied vv 6, 7 to the Israelites at Sinai and maintained that they would have become immortal as a result of accepting the Law, if only they had not committed the sin of the golden calf.
    Now we have this guy named Asaph which means Collector, Gatherer that was the head Musician under David and Solomon.
    Boy he gathered up some interesting thoughts for us in this Psalm. He seems to think that God has been an unjust Judge, allowing the wicked to get away with their wickedness. He then calls upon God to rescue the weak, fatherless, afflicted, destitute, and needy from the wicked. Boy we could sure use some of that today. I think it could be said that our rulers do not know or understand us. They just keep on walking on in darkness [of complacent satisfaction]. Nothing is wrong in their lives as all the foundations of the earth are shaken. They have no idea about justice for the common man. They act like gods, but they will all die like men; men of dust. God, please come and judge the earth, because all the nations belong to you! Come quickly Lord!
    May the Lord bless you and keep you,

  • A Closer Look at “Checkmate”
    Charles Morris • February 22, 2021

    THE CHESS GRANDMASTER’S DISCOVERY
    According to legend, and probably fact, the story goes like this. A chess grand master came upon this intriguing painting in the Louvre museum alongside other famous art such as the Mona Lisa.

    The grand mastered stared a long time at the chess board in the painting and finally noticed something surprising. The typical interpretation of the painting (that the devil had the man in “checkmate”) was incorrect.

    Though the devil seemed to be the obvious victor, he was in fact not winning. The man, who thought he was losing, was actually winning.

    According to the arrangement of the pieces left on the chess board, his king had one more move. This fateful move would make him the winner of the game.

    The grand master called the curator and determined that the title “Checkmate” did not fit the scene because the forlorn-looking player actually had the ability to defeat his opponent, though he didn’t realize it yet. His king had one more move.

    THE SPIRITUAL IMPLICATIONS
    Now think about the spiritual implications of this painting with me about what the grand master discovered.

    Repeatedly in Scripture, God assures his people that there is always a way of escaping situations that seem hopeless at the time.

    When the people of Judah were deported to Babylon because of their sinfulness, God revealed that a future day of release would come.
    Just as God provided water for the Israelites in the desert, he would also provide for them on their long trek homeward.

    A little boy in John 6 only had two fish and a few loaves of bread to feed thousands of people. It looked like checkmate, but our King had another move left! They collected 12 baskets of leftover food after the meal was served.

    In the Old Testament, Daniel was thrown into a den of hungry lions. It looked like checkmate, but our King had another move left and Daniel remained safe.

    In John 8, it looked like checkmate for a woman about to be killed by angry men with stones. But Jesus told the woman to go and not sin anymore.

    On Good Friday, the criminal next to Jesus on the cross thought it was the end, yet he still repented.

    So often in life, we consider the world to be a mess. With war, violence, a deadly pandemic, unemployment, struggling marriages, depression, isolation, and more … we can easily become disillusioned. People begin to feel lost. We look for direction but often end up on the wrong path. It looks like checkmate, but we need not fear—the game is not over.

    Our Creator God still has one move left! Our lives and future are in His hands. The Lord is the only King who can never be defeated.

  • WHO IS THE “I AM” SPOKEN OF IN THE BIBLE?
    Bible Study | Daily Devotional
    Daily Devotions
    Average reading time is about 5 and a half minutes
    Amazing Facts Audio Daily Devotional
    The Scriptures teach clearly that the great “I AM” is Jesus. Remember when Moses didn’t know how to identify to the Israelites which god had sent him? “God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’ And He said, ‘Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, “I AM has sent me to you” ’ ” (Exodus 3:14).

    The phrase “I AM” means that God is the eternal, self-existent One. In conversations with others, we often like to know how old a person is and where they are from. With the Lord, He has always been and is everywhere. He has no beginning and no end. In the book of Revelation, He is spoken of as the “Alpha and the Omega” (Revelation 1:8, 11; 21:6). As the Creator, He is “from everlasting to everlasting” (Psalm 90:2).

    We can see the connection of this sacred “I AM” name in the Gospels when Christ spoke of Himself saying, “I am the bread” (John 6:35), “I am the good shepherd” (John 10:11), and “I am the vine” (John 15:5).

    The title of “I AM” was so clearly understood by Christ’s enemies that when He used it for Himself, “They took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by” (John 8:59).

    One other interesting reference to the name “I AM” is found at the beginning of the Ten Commandments. Notice, “God spoke all these words, saying: ‘I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me’ ” (Exodus 20:1–3). Even in God’s law we find Christ exemplified!

    Remember how Jesus said, “If you love Me, keep My commandments” (John 14:15). Actually, the phrase “keep My commandments” comes right out of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:6, Deuteronomy 5:10). There is an obvious connection between Christ, the law, and the name “I AM.”

  • In case you haven't noticed today is #NASA day!
    My cousin, who likely got drunk last night and smoked a few bowls to boot claims that "I'M CRAZY" and that it's ME with the delusion!!!

    Let me explain something to you, there was a time in my life that I'd have partied you under the table every night! But with age comes wisdom!

    And with #Jesus comes #TRUTH!
    I've NEVER been as sober as I am right now! And never have I seen more clearly!

    Jesus said to ask a thing in His name and he would do it. I actually ASKED FOR THIS! I ALMOST regret it! Because once you learn the TRUTH you cannot go back to the LIES! I'll testify that The Lord can cure blindness! He cured mine!

    If you believe in the Bible then you must believe in 2 Corinthians 3:12-18

    12 Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 15 Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 16 But when one[a] turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord[b] is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,[c] are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.[d] For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

    The Lord Himself removed my veil! Will you allow Him to remove YOURS?
    Satan's biggest deception was convincing the world he didn't exist!

    Along with convincing you that you are a useless speck in an infinite universe!
    When in fact, if you read your Bible it tells you that you are the apple of God's Eye! And that the Earth is His footstool!

    Do you believe that The Lord God Almighty "Lied to you" or spoke to you unclearly? I don't!

    HIS NAME
    READ AMOS 1:1 THROUGH 4:13
    “What’s in a name?” Shakespeare posed that question in his tragedy Romeo and Juliet. As it turns out, names can be important. In business and social circles, it often matters who you are—and who you know.



    He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, and who reveals his thoughts to mankind, who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth—the Lord God Almighty is his name (Amos 4:13).



    Amos wasn’t a ruler or a member of the priestly order. He was a shepherd and fig farmer (Amos 7:14). The Israelites may have wondered: Who is this guy to preach to us? But the prophet wasn’t just speaking for himself. Amos represented the Creator of the universe. He spoke in the name of “the Lord God Almighty.”



    Christians are called to carry the gospel to all nations. But they don’t need big names or influential positions to accomplish this task.



    They have access to the name that holds the power of eternal life. Proclaiming the truth in Jesus’ name can change the world.



    Thought for Today: Remind yourself throughout the day that you represent the powerful name of Jesus.

  • 23 SEPTEMBER (1877)

    ‘Now then do it’

    ‘Ye sought for David in times past to be king over you: now then do it: for the LORD hath spoken of David, saying, By the hand of my servant David I will save my people Israel out of the hand of the Philistines, and out of the hand of all their enemies.’ 2 Samuel 3:17–18
    SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Genesis 19:12–28

    You were more impressionable years ago than you are now, and, speaking after the manner of men, you are now far less likely to be saved. You know it is so, and yet you did at that time, after a fashion, pray, and, after a sort, you were in earnest: but what of all that? Nothing has come of it. Will anything ever come of it? The Israelites might talk about making David king, but that would not crown him. They might meet together and say they wished it were so, but that would not do it. It might be generally admitted that he ought to be monarch and it might even be earnestly hoped that one day he would be so, but that would not do it: something more decided must be done.

    And am I not hitting the very centre of the target, when I say of some of you that you have scores of times given up the whole question as a matter of argument? Yes, and your heart has submitted that it was wrong of you to continue as you are, and you have been moved with strong resolutions towards repentance and faith, and yet you are the same as ever and not one inch more forward. Still you are in darkness, still under the dominion of Satan, still the slave of sin, and so you will be in ten years’ more time, I fear; and so you will be to the end of life, and so forever and forever! May God grant that my words may not be prophetic concerning any one of you, but that you may this very day be moved by the Eternal Spirit to take decided action through his grace; ‘now then do it’.

    FOR MEDITATION: (Our Own Hymn Book no.658 v.2—Philip Doddridge, 1755)
    ‘’Tis done! the great transaction’s done:
    I am my Lord’s, and He is mine:
    He drew me, and I followed on,
    Charmed to confess the voice divine.’

    GOD IS FAITHFUL
    READ HOSEA 1:1 THROUGH 7:16
    An old joke tells of a young newlywed who called her minister, crying. “Pastor, Joe and I had our first fight! It was awful. What am I going to do?”



    The pastor said, “It is okay. Every marriage has its first fight.”

    “I know; I know,” She said impatiently. “But what am I going to do with the body?”



    While most marriages aren’t as difficult as this joke suggests, Hosea’s marriage was especially challenging. Hosea’s relationship with an unfaithful spouse was an illustrated message of the relationship between God and His people. Israel had been unfaithful to God. The Israelites had worshiped idols and engaged in immoral behavior. Though God had reason to destroy Israel, He desired to restore it.

    “I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord” (Hosea 2:20).



    God still draws people out of their sin and into relationship with Him. Though Christians may fail, Jesus remains a faithful, loving Savior.



    Prayer Suggestion: Thank You, God, for Your faithfulness. Help me be faithful to You.

    Quicklook: Hosea 2:14–23
    GOD'S WORD FOR TODAY DAILY DEVOTIONAL GOD IS FAITHFUL READ HOSEA 1:1 THROUGH 7:16 An old joke tells of a young newlywed who called her minister, crying. “Pastor, Joe and I had our first fight! It was awful. What am I going to do?” The pastor said, “It is okay. Every marriage has its first fight.” “I know; I know,” She said impatiently. “But what am I going to do with the body?” While most marriages aren’t as difficult as this joke suggests, Hosea’s marriage was especially challenging. Hosea’s relationship with an unfaithful spouse was an illustrated message of the relationship between God and His people. Israel had been unfaithful to God. The Israelites had worshiped idols and engaged in immoral behavior. Though God had reason to destroy Israel, He desired to restore it. “I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord” (Hosea 2:20). God still draws people out of their sin and into relationship with Him. Though Christians may fail, Jesus remains a faithful, loving Savior. Prayer Suggestion: Thank You, God, for Your faithfulness. Help me be faithful to You. Quicklook: Hosea 2:14–23
