God's Powers That Be

(Rom. 13:1)  “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” In the above verse the words “powers that be” refer to the “gift of government” to mankind. God’s intention for government was to rule for Him and not just oneself, and that is precisely why we as American’s should be thankful for our form of government that is patterned after God’s ideology and not this world’s. Our Constitution, Amendments, and Declaration of Independence, were all written by our founding fathers with the will of God in mind, as well as the personal dream of having a free country where every man has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As Americans we have a tremendous heritage to remember and protect. A heritage that has been handed down to us by faithful men who expected us to defend it, because there are those in our world that are determined to undermine and eradicate its great foundation. Communism, Socialism, Marxism, Liberalism, Humanism, and the like, are all ideologies that are anti-American and anti-Christ, but thank God for this great Republic on which we stand. Where we the people have the right to elect representatives that rule for God and us. This country has never been at such a dangerous place since its conception. So beware, the Bible says in (Ps. 11:3) “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Remember that, this 4th of July

The Strengthening Purpose of Time

( Gen 41:41-43) “And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt... A nd he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.” When Joseph was introduced to us in chp.37, he was a young inexperienced 17 year old boy, and yet 13 years later God raised him up  to rule the nation of Egypt. So, what made him different ? The Answer : “ Time,” and his faith in God ! You see time is a wonderful teacher; 1) Time strengthens endurance . Endurance and faith can only be strengthened over time. Like exercise, we start out not able to do much but over time we find that we can do more. You see, God allows us to go through the ups and downs of life, to help us gain not only spiritual maturity, but also spiritual abilities. Spiritual endurance therefore enables us to handle life’s trials better. 2) Time strengthens patience . Although Joseph, consistently did right, God allowe

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

(Matt 6:11) “Give us this day our daily bread.” God desires that we communicate with Him about everything on a regular basis. Why, because He wants us to know that He is listening and that He has the power to answer our prayers at any time. In the Lord’s teachings on prayer in (Matt. 7), Jesus instructed his disciples to simply ask, and then to keep asking. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” In other words, ask God, and if you see nothing keep knocking on heaven’s door until He responds or shows you differently. Therefore, prayer is simply thanking God for the needs that he has promised to provide, but also asking Him for things that we cannot change. The above part of the Lord’s prayer is an expectation of thanksgiving for doing so. Jesus told us in (Matt. 6:33) not to worry about all our basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and the like, for if we will just simply seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness,

Glory To Jesus In The Highest

(Luke 2:13-14) “ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest , and on earth peace, good will toward men.”  Again, we read above about the great proclamation of Heaven’s Angels the night of Jesus’ birth, and how they began to sing “Glory to God in the highest.” So, what did the angels mean by this statement . 48 times in the Bible God uses the phrase, “The Most High,” to describe not just the dwelling place of God, but also the Glory that should be ascribed to Him and His Son Jesus 1) Jesus was the Glory that came down from the Highest Heaven . Jesus’s existence did not begin at birth, for the Bible tells us that he was, and is, and always will be the eternal Son of God , “the only begotten of the Father.”   For He is, (Rev. 1:8) “the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and ending,” (18) “he that liveth, and was dead”; and the one who is “alive for evermore,” 2) His Glory filled the whole earth at his birth .
