Truth Comes From God

Truth comes from God.

Lies come from the enemy.

If you tell lies you are following the father of lies.

If you speak the truth you are following the Lord.

santa and satan have a lot in common – one is a lie and the other is a liar – satan comes to steal kill and destroy – satan is the father of lies – satan sends forth lying spirits among the people to try to continue to steal the glory of God in any way satan can do that – ONE DAY EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.

 

 

 

Consult The Lord & Stay Away From Evil

People who follow after God are never supposed to consult mediums/psychics or horoscopes.

 

“So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;  And enquired not of the Lord:  therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.” , Words from 1 Chronicles 10:13-14 (KJV) 

 

Live In Peace, When Possible

 

Beth and I had done a Bible study a few years ago.

I recall how Beth pointed out that the SONS OF THUNDER (disciples of Jesus named James & John) asked if they should call down fire from heaven to fall upon a village of people that refused to welcome them into their village. 

Jesus rebuked the Sons of thunder and let them know that Jesus came to save people.

Jesus chose to go to another place.

If you are not accepted where you are it may be time to peacefully move away.

God’s Word tells us to live in peace when it is at all possible.

Move Forward

 

My friend, Gayle Martini,  Shared these words in a women’s prayer meeting:

“When the devil reminds me of my past I remind him of his future.”

Revelation says, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

Gayle is gone now but the words she shared are still true.

Are You Following God?

Are you following the Holy Spirit of God and doing things that you know are right? Are you following your own sinful nature by getting involved in quarrels, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, sexual immorality or anything listed in the passages found in Galatians 5?

Did you know that Christians are not supposed to associate with other people who have declared they love God if those people are openly or should I say blatantly walking in sin?

Are you praying and asking the Lord to help you live the life he wants you to live?

Some people only obey the Lord when it fits in with their personal ideas and when it fits in with looking good in the eyes of mankind.

You can choose to please people or you can choose to do things that are pleasing to God.

1 Corinthians 5King James Version (KJV)
5 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.
2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

Galatians 5:19-21 (NLT)
19 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

We Will Be Held Accountable

“We are not guaranteed we will be on this earth tomorrow but we are guaranteed we will be held accountable for every idle word spoken and every deed done.”  ~ thoughts shared by Elizabeth Wolfe 

The Wicked Will Perish

This evening’s Bible study has a focus on a truth about how the wicked will perish.

The day will come when God’s people will not have to be surrounded by wicked people ever again.

While we live on this earth we will hear and see wicked things done by evil minded people.  Wickedness will still be seen until the Lord returns for his people and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ are able to enter into the Holy City mentioned in the book of Revelation.

There are times when the good Lord does take some wicked people from this earth and those wicked people will no longer be seen.

WHEW!  There is a sense of relief when a wicked person leaves this earth.

I know of a young person that was seriously abused years ago.  There came a time when she found out that the man who harmed her had died.  He could not threaten to harm her any more.  She also knew that he would not have an opportunity to hurt anyone else now that he is gone.  

Here are some passages that remind us that the wicked will perish:

 

Proverbs 28:1,

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.”

Psalm 1:6, 

“For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

Psalm 104:35, 

“Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Lord, O my soul. Praise ye the Lord.”

 

 

 

Psalm 37:10,

“For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.”

Psalm 37:20,

“But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

I believe that most of us feel a lot like the young woman felt when the one who had been wicked towards her died.  It is natural that she was relieved that the man could not harm anyone again.

Tonight I am meditating on the truth found in the Word of God that tells us that the wicked shall perish.

 

THE WICKED WILL FLEE.

THE WICKED WILL PERISH. 

MAY SINNERS VANISH FROM THE EARTH.

THE WICKED WILL BE NO MORE.

THOUGH YOU LOOK FOR THEM THEY WILL NOT BE FOUND. 

Tell The Truth

 

I reviewed something  I had written about 2 years ago about some churches that are not using good common sense.  

It does not make sense for a church to allow lies/fables to be taught as if those stories are true. It is not new, you know?

The enemy has been getting people’s minds off of the truth for centuries.

I am ashamed of the people that call themselves servants of the Lord yet they encourage fables to be taught to their children as if the fables are truth.

Tell your children the difference between truth and lies.

Tell your grandchildren the truth instead of lying to them.

We are instructed to teach children the truth.

It is disgusting to see the way some church people glorify their own way of doing things instead of doing what they know is right.

Parents, Instruct Your Children

 

What are you talking about when you are sitting at home?

What do you talk about when you walk along the road?

What about when you lie down and when you get up? What are you talking about during those times?

God’s Word instructs the people of God to teach their children about God. It’s not something you simply expect Sunday school teachers to do on Sunday morning or Wednesday evening. It is not something the public school teachers are going to be teaching your children.

God fearing parents are instructed to teach their children about the Lord every day and several times a day.

You’ve got to be studying God’s Word if you want to share it with your children. A good teacher will make learning fun for them, too.

Talking about the Lord should be so natural for you as a parent that your children will daily learn about the things of God.

The words from Deuteronomy 11 I read today that caused me to share what I have shared here today:

“Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

Words shared by Elizabeth Wolfe after reviewing words found in Deuteronomy 11.
