He is Coming Back

He is Coming Back

Keep a sharp lookout! For you do not know when I will come… Watch for my return!

  • Mark 13:35,36 (TLB)

The great Dwight L. Moody used to say, “I never preached a sermon without thinking that possibly the Lord may come before I preach another.” Dr. G. Campbell Morgan, the distinguished British clergy-man, said, “I never begin my work in the morning without thinking that perhaps he may interrupt my work and begin His own. I am not looking for death. I am looking for Him.” That is the way a Christian should live his life – in the constant anticipation of the return of Jesus Christ! If we could live every day as though it may be the very last one before the final judgment, what a difference it would make here on earth! But we don’t like to think that way. We don’t like to think that our carefully made plans, our long range schemes may be interrupted by the trumpet of God. Too many people would rather say, “Oh, well, the end of the world hasn’t come yet, so why think about it – it’s probably a thousand years away.”

Prayer:
Today might be the last day when Jesus returns. Cleanse me, Father and make good enough to welcome you when ever you come.

Share on Facebook

Here are three great ways to rejoice while you’re suffering.

The Past

When you are suffering from pain, a broken relationship, or financial difficulties, it’s hard to rejoice, isn’t it? In fact, these are the times when it’s the most difficult, however, in God’s view, rejoicing before God while you’re going through great suffering is precious in the sight of God. Job, who in the past had lost everything, including his ten children, said in his suffering, “Though he slay me, I will hope in him” (Job 13:15a). We can rejoice in these times of suffering because our hope is in Him and not in this present, evil world.

The Present

Strive to do what Habakkuk the Prophet did when he saw all that Israel was going through. He said, “Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation” (Hab 3:17-18). If we realize that Israel depended on agriculture and livestock for their sustenance, and that Habakkuk still took joy in his salvation, then even when things start to fall apart around us, we can ask the rhetorical question, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword” (Rom 8:35)? Obviously, the answer is no one or nothing can separate us from God.

The Future

For the child of God, no amount of suffering in this life can rob us of our joy if we don’t let it. The Apostle Paul often looked ahead to the glory that’s coming as he did in writing to the church at Rome, saying “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Rom 8:18). He didn’t stop to look back but looked forward, writing “I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead” (Phil 3:13), and so he says, “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil 3:14).

Conclusion

It’s not easy to rejoice in suffering, but it’s not impossible. Just think about what God has done for us in the past (John 3:16), what He is doing for us now, and what the future holds for us. That’s why “we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose” (Rom 8:28).

May God richly bless you.

4 Ways To Avoid Being Too Judgmental

4 Ways To Avoid Being Too Judgmental

4 Ways To Avoid Being Too Judgmental

Here are four ways to avoid becoming a judgmental person. What ways would you suggest?

Don’t Judge by Sight

It is far too easy to look at someone and make a quick judgment, and very rarely is that quick assessment or judgment true. We must remember what God told Samuel: “For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart” (1 Sam. 16:7). Looks can be deceiving. You cannot judge a book until you read it, and not by the front cover. I know I’ve been guilty of this. I repented of that and now reserve judgment when I look at people and trust in God.

Accept the Differences

I witnessed to a co-worker many years ago, but I hesitated to do so because he was a biker and had tattoos all over his body. I managed to work up the courage and did it anyway because I assumed he wasn’t saved by the way he looked. I couldn’t have been more wrong. When I went up to him and shared the Gospel, he said that he was saved years ago. I confessed my judging him by sight, and he told me, “Well, at least you had the courage to tell me about Christ.” I never forgot that, and today I don’t care what a person looks like because I can’t see their heart. But God can, and that’s all that truly matters. I accept people no matter what they look like: tattoos, body piercings, and whatever else you can think of.

See Them as God Sees Them

If we want to be more like God, we must learn to look at people the way He looks at them. The difference is that God knows the heart and we don’t, so we can’t make assumptions about someone. We must learn to see them as God sees them. Think about this: Before we came to place our trust in Christ, we were wicked sinners and natural enemies of God (Rom. 5:8, 10) and separated from his holiness by our sins (Isaiah 59:1-2). But “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). “For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly” (Rom. 5:6), of which I include myself first and foremost.

Look at Yourself

If we are to judge anyone, let it start with the person in the mirror. We know that our own hearts are wicked, and my own “heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it” (Jer. 17:9). I must first take the plank that’s in my own eye before I ever try to look at the speck in my brother’s or sister’s eye (Matt. 7:5). Let judgment start with me!

Conclusion

I pray these ways of being too judgmental will help you not repeat the same mistakes that I have. I judged–really misjudged–by sight. I didn’t accept the differences in people. I didn’t see them as God sees them. Finally, I needed to look at my own life first before I could ever be qualified to look at the lives of others.

May God richly bless you,

Pastor Jack Wellman


Every Day is a Gift

Every Day is a Gift

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. (Psalm 90:12, NIV)

Sometimes, our days can be so full and busy that we forget how fragile life really is. It can be easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesn’t go your way, or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to lose focus if we let it. We have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what’s wrong, we’ll miss the beauty that each day has to offer.

I encourage you today to not let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted, hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every moment that we’ve been given.” As you daily keep a proper perspective, you’ll gain a heart of wisdom and experience the full blessing that He has for you each and every day!

Father, thank You for the gift of today. I choose to focus on the blessing of each moment instead of allowing the little things to steal my joy. Keep me close to You always as I submit every area of my heart and mind to You in Jesus name. Amen.

The Perfect Reign Is Coming

The Perfect Reign Is Coming

But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel. 2 Chronicles 6:6

Bible scholars agree that the golden age of ancient Israel was during the reign of Solomon, son of King David. They hold the view that the period witnessed unprecedented peace, power, prosperity, prestige and an ambitious expansion of the kingdom. Another indisputable consensus is that the era began with Solomon inviting God to step into the project of ruling the people from day one.

Solomon pleaded while dedicating the temple in Jerusalem: “Now, my God, let, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open, and let thine ears be attent unto the prayer that is made in this place”. God’s answer to the request is found in the tranquility and blessedness enjoyed in Israel in the days of Solomon. The young monarch swam in splendour and greatness not witnessed by his father whose reign was full of rebellion and family troubles. Solomon was endowed with wisdom, knowledge and understanding that attracted great men and woman from far and near to his palace. His proverbs and sayings were not ordinary. His utterances soothed and comforted the sorrowful.

Although rich, Solomon still saw kings and queens bringing more wealth to him. You enjoy prosperity when you ask God to step into your affairs.

We may marvel at the abundance supply in the time of Solomon. But it is only symbolic of a far better reign which is to come under the Perfect King Jesus Christ. It foreshadows the eternal reign of the King of kings in Whose time we shall have a “kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed” (Daniel 7:14).

Eternal bliss awaits those who endure till the end.

Assurance of His Love

Assurance of His Love

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
Psalm 27:1

Today many people are living in the bondage of fear. In a recent study a psychiatrist said that the greatest problem facing his patients was fear. Fear of going insane, committing suicide, being alone, or fear of heart disease, cancer, disaster, or death. We are becoming a nation of fearful people. Down through the centuries in times of trouble, temptation, trial, bereavement, and crisis, God has brought courage to the hearts of those who love Him. The Bible is crowded with assurances of God’s help and comfort in every kind of trouble which might cause fears to arise in the human heart. Today the Christian can come to the Scriptures with full assurance that God is going to deliver the person who puts his trust and confidence in God. Christians can look into the future with promise, hope, and joy, and without fear, discouragement, or despondency.

Your assurances of love still the fears of my heart, Lord.

Today’s devotional lesson.

DAY THREE MIRACLE

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:10

Many children of God do not know the depth of the common saying, “Order is the first thing in heaven”. They quote this statement awkwardly without giving it the necessary importance it requires. In the real sense of it, orderliness is the nature of divine administration. My prayer for someone using this devotional is that if your life is disorganized, it shall be divinely fixed in Jesus’ name.

Our God is the God of order; He ordered the course of the universe by His Word. This is the reason why we must give the Word of God pre-eminence in our lives. The Lord said to Jeremiah;”…. I will hasten my word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1:12). The Almighty God does not take His own Word with levity like some of us do. Bible teachings come in form of doctrines and living by them is inevitable if we are to live orderly. Jesus Christ said in John 7:17.

Disobedience to God’s order brings chaos and unimaginable calamities as the story of Adam and Eve’s fall reveals (Genesis 2:16-17, Genesis 3:9-19). I encourage the user of this devotional to begin to place a high premium on the Word of God, even as God Himself does. In the second pastoral epistle of Paul to Timothy we read: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2nd Timothy 3:16-17

On the third day, God set in order the course of the universe by His Word and things began to work, even till this day; the seas in their places, the dry land, a variety of vegetation and fruit bearing plants.

Our God is the God of both creation and provision: He creates to provide. This means lack was not originally planned to characterize the life of man. I pray that everything that you need shall be orderly provided for your pleasure this season in Jesus’ name. However, pay close attention to the Words of the Great Provider. 

Father, please set my life in order, and dont allow me to do things against Your will.

Fulfilling God’s Purpose

Fulfilling God’s Purpose

We all have a purpose and a destiny upon our lives whether we know it or not. Truly our purpose is to fulfill the will of God upon our lives, but in order to do that we have to know what the will of God is and then begin to walk in it. Generally we all have a purpose to fulfill here on the earth. That is to know Him and His Son Jesus Christ. That is step number one, there is no use going on to the next steps if we haven’t first made Jesus Lord in our lives. If we try to fulfill the will of God without first knowing God we will be walking in our own vanity, and we will not fulfill God’s purpose nor will we ever be fulfilled ourselves.

After this there is fulfilling of God’s general Word. In other words walking in the general purpose God has given to all believers, learning to walk in power of the Word and follow after the Holy Spirit of God. We are not going to go very far if we don’t know the Word of God and follow after His Holy Spirit. Every believer also has a specific will God has called him or her to fulfill.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

The Word of God is saying through the Apostle Paul the before the world was created God ordained certain good works for us to walk in. He knows the beginning from the end and He knows what we are supposed to do in our time here.

1 Peter 1:17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your sojourning here in fear;

You might say I don’t know what I am supposed to be doing. I am not called into the ministry. It is true that all are not called to the 5 fold ministry, Apostle Prophet, Pastor, Evangelist, and Teacher. But we all are called to good works. Even as Paul said to the Ephesians, we were created in Christ Jesus for good works before the world was created. I don’t know if you have ever considered this quite this way, but God expects us to fulfill our calling here on the Earth, and we will be held accountable for our time here. As a matter of fact our reward in eternity will be based on what we do with what we have been given here and now. That is not to confused with our salvation, for salvation can not be earned by works.

Titus 3:5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,

As the Apostle Peter said we will be judged according to our own works so we must conduct our time of sojourning here in fear. Sojourning simply means we are passing through. We have to do something while we are on our way to something else. We are not just occupying time and space. Jesus talked about this in the parable of the talents.

Matthew 25:14-31 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. 15. “And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, `Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’

His lord said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ He also who had received two talents came and said, `Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ Then he who had received the one talent came and said, `Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’ But his lord answered and said to him, `You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. Therefore you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

INTRODUCTION

For Whoso ever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, How they call on Him whom they have not believe? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they are sent? As its written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of Peace and bring tiding of good things! Romans 10:13-15(quoted)

AN EVANGELICAL MINISTRY THAT INTENDS TO EXTEND THE WORD JESUS SPOKE IN THE BOOK OF JOHN 14:16 (‘ I AM THE WAY AND TRUTH AND THE LIFE NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME “) AS THE BASIC SCRIPTURE.NOTE: for us we know the way and how to get there (john 14:2-4) but others must know through us (act 1:8)
