Have You Taken Advantage of The Promise?

Promise – then Patience until it is – Performed   If I asked my children to wash the dishes, they would Promise to get it done. Then I had to be Patient and wait before the task was Performed. The Promise From the 8th or 9th century B.C. the following is stated in the book of Joel 2:28-32. And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. Your old men shall dream dreams. Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. . . Wow, sounds like a promise! These are famous verses. But did The Promise ever come to pass? It had to because God never lies – NEVER! Below are abbreviated verses tracing, The Promise. I encourage you to read the full account in your Bible. (Don’t have one? Then buy a New Living or New American Standard Version Bible! The King James is hard to read.) The Patience Skipping 8-9 centuries, Luke 24 picks up just after Jesus’ crucifixion: Now on the first day of the week (Sunday) very early in the morning . . . women came to His tomb, saw 2 angels, and went back to the Disciples. Peter and John ran to the tomb. Verse 13...

Sex Practiced Outside of Biblical Marriage

Quotations from the Bible about Sex Practiced Outside of Biblical Marriage Why doesn’t God want sex practiced outside of biblical marriage between man and woman? Because it can kill you and/or ruin relationships! God wants you to prosper in all ways! The thief (Satan) comes to steal kill and destroy, but I (Jesus) have come that you may have life and that more abundantly. John 10:10  You can’t have abundant life if you have Aids! An older lady who attended a “Christian-type” church asked me: “Where does the Bible discuss homosexuality?” She didn’t believe the Bible had anything on the...

Give Me Product Information So I Can Buy!

Keys to Good Customer Service (1) This weekend I needed to purchase a new “weed wacker.” I went to my preferred lawn care specialist hoping to buy. Unsatisfied, I went to see product displays at two big hardware box stores. Each product was packed in an expensive white box with lots of graphics. How much product information was available on the packaging or from the sales staff? Very little! There was no information except PRICE ($70-$279); power (corded electric/battery/2-cycle/4 cycle); curved or non-curved; and horsepower. I had no reason to buy any product!  I couldn’t get the information I...

God’s Amazing Precision – I

Shares Examples of God’s Amazing Precision Belittling the Egyptian Gods A friend had to move a huge machine from St. Louis to Alabama. It had to be set-up with a tolerance of only 1/10,000 of an inch. Wow! However, this is nothing compared to God’s Amazing Precision. Whole books have been written to explain only partial sentences in the Bible. Here’s one I missed. For 200+ years the Israelites made Egyptian Pharaohs rich. But the Egyptians still worshiped false (pretend) gods including himself, the Pharaoh. One became afraid as God’s people prospered, so began persecuted them, killing their babies and enslaving them. It is documented; God heard His people’s cries for help, so sent Moses. Using 10 plagues to extricate His people from their misery, the Israelites escaped. The Red Sea parted allowing the millions to cross in 1 night. (Some doubters say the water was only inches deep. If so, the pursuing Egyptian army was completely drown in those same only inches of water, making it an even greater miracle!) In the telling of these Mega Miracles it is easy to miss a simple statement seemingly lost in Exodus 12:12. . . and against all the gods of Egypt I WILL execute judgment: I am the Lord. (Most of us don’t exactly remember these plagues, much less the “gods.”) This means God was going to openly mock all the...

Seldom Seen Zechariah’s Golden Nuggets

“Raiders of the Lost Ark,” is in Zechariah’s Golden Nuggets! Near the end of the Old Testament is a group of short books known as the Minor Prophets.  Each was written by a prophet around the 6th century B.C. but difficult to find in the Bible’s massive 1,500 pages. It exposes God’s plan directly to the reader – YOU!  While every word in the Bible is important, here are some significant Zechariah’s Golden Nuggets you may have missed. Return to Me, says the Lord of hosts, and I will return to you. Question: Do  you need to return so He will...
