Rev 1.10-11a

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

Saying, ‘I am Alpha and Omega’…”

 

You don’t get your work done in 6 days? (God did – Gen 1.) Is it poor management to not get chores finished by Saturday PM? When you do *your work* on *His Day* you’re stealing time from God.

“So long as sin in the world

love must make war against it.”

– Daniel Steele, /Love Enthroned/

 

What are some differences between Earth & World?

Psa 77.18 The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the WORLD: the EARTH trembled and shook. Earth&World – think. #8

 

 

PRAYING PLACE

No one to hear, no one to see,

No one here but God and me;

The greatest Being of all time and space

Ordains to meet me in this place.

a great fall

The broadway was calling, was beckoning,

And with short-sighted, selfish reckoning

You answered its alluring call.

Now you have “freedom,” “liberty.”

“I’m headed also to heaven. See!”

No, Friend, you’ve had a great fall.

DO NOT FAINT

There lives no sinner who can not be a saint

If he’ll turn to Christ, pursue, and not faint.

“Whosoever” is meaningful, ah, for even you.

Stop being a mere “animal” in satan’s zoo.

Christ cleans from every tarnishing taint.

Rev 1.18

“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore,

Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

 

Periodical? You want mature readers? Give them Content. You want thinking readers? Give them Content. You want serious readers? Give them Content. But if you just want /more/ readers give them color. Shallow readers may be attracted to color – thinkers are attracted to Content.

“God’s name, God’s kingdom, God’s will must be the primary object of Christian prayer.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer

 

Most of us appreciate a “thank you.” It can be a formal note, verbal words, or a simple wave of the hand when you let somebody into traffic. Question: Do You Say Thank You? Just as you like to be thanked, others do also. Learn how to say “thank you.” If need be force yourself to write, say, wave that gratitude. Once I gave a man $100 (it was, perhaps, harder to come-by then than now) & he never said a word of thanks. Why? I don’t know. If you’re thankful, say so. If you’re not thankful, you may get a hard lesson.

Rev 1.10-11a

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

“Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last…”

 

Do you love the Lord? Does that mean you love His Word? Does that mean you spend time with His Bible e-v-e-r-y day? Does that mean He & you have “conversations”? He speaks to you & you speak to Him? When we love someone we read their letter/text & talk with them in person. And when we love SOMEONE we read His text & we talk to Him in person.

“We have a responsibility to discern;

We do not have a responsibility to judge.”

– Leonard Sankey, IHC Shelbyville, IN, 9/17/96

 

We humans prefer multiple choices. We like to think we have the spectrum, A to Z. We do not like to be restricted to 3 but, “as limited as 3 is, it’s better than 2.” God allows us choices in several areas of life: color’s, dimensions, locations, etc. In the most important areas He makes the choice starkly simple: Him or His arch enemy, Up or down, Heaven or hell – there’s no neutral ground. “He that is not with me is against me…he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad” (Mat 12.30).

YOUR LAST DAY

Today is a day to serve God by choice.

To sing and shout and greatly rejoice,

Because today could be your last day

To serve God on earth.

Today is a day to give God your will.

To seek and to know; His mind to fulfill,

Because today could be your last day

Of this world’s birth.

– eab, April 1984

 

Gal 6.6

“Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.”

 

Are you conscious of symbols? You probably recognize emblems of Toyota, Nike, & Apple. Some symbols are being used without text – very convenient as we head toward one-worldliness. We’re not just headed toward oneness in government & business, we’re headed toward a one-world religion. Religions, cults also have symbols. Warning: all you see that’s supposedly christian is not. I want to understand icons better & I strongly encourage you to open your eyes & ask God to help you see truth behind symbols.

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.”

– D L Moody

 

Do you honor God’s special Day? (It’s properly called “The Lord’s Day” Rev 1.10). Do you leave off unnecessary work? Do you omit buying. (Thank God for Hobby Lobby & Chick-fil-a.) Yes, He IS Lord of the sabbath & we’re definitely not bound by Jewish “sabbath laws.” Honoring the Lord’s Day by making it different/sacred is a clear way of honoring Christ – it is the day He chose to come back to life again!
