We shall not always live in this poor, dying, trying, suffering, sinful state!

We shall not always live in this poor, dying, trying, suffering, sinful state! 

(Letters of John Newton)

Now I know in part–then I shall know fully.” Soon we shall see cause to number our sharpest trials, among our choicest mercies! Then we shall say, “He has done all things well.”

Our trials are but for a season…

Who is regulating affairs on this earth today–God, or the Devil?

(Arthur Pink, “The Sovereignty of God”)

Who is regulating affairs on this earth today–God, or the Devil?

That God reigns supreme in Heaven, is generally conceded; but that He reigns supreme over this earth, is almost universally denied–if not directly, then indirectly. More and more men are relegating God to the background in their philosophizing and theorizing…

Have You Ever Felt So Broken?

Have you ever felt so broken,
like a bunch of scattered old bones…
Feeling like you are in a million pieces,
with no human form shown?
Unable to catch your breath
with no lungs to even hold your air…
with indescribable wails of brokenness,
yelling for God in your despair.
Have you ever felt so broken,
like you would never again be whole.
Feeling totally shattered…
body, spirit, and soul.
Unable to mentally function,
like your brain is scrambled eggs…
but unable to move forward
like having detached arms and legs.
Have you ever felt so broken,
by abuses from another’s hand…
or loss of the life you knew,
to a level you can’t understand.
For these scattered bones of brokenness,
are difficult to explain…
Unless you have felt this brokenness,
and all it’s devastating pain.
Have you ever felt so broken,
crying to God in devastation…
then finally submitting to His plan,
for your healing and restoration.
Remember, He feels all your pain,
and hears all your groans.
And nothing is impossible with God,
Who can give life to even dry bones.

“Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 37: 2-6

 

7 Traits of False Teachers

Original Posting: Colin Smith:

“There were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.” (2 Peter 2:1)

There are no “ifs, ands, or buts” in Peter’s words. It’s a clear and definite statement. There were false prophets among the people (of Israel in the Old Testament). That’s a matter of history. False prophets were a constant problem in the Old Testament, and those who falsely claimed to be prophets of God were to be stoned. The people rarely had the will to deal with them, so they multiplied, causing disaster to the spiritual life of God’s people.

In the same way Peter says, “There will be false teachers among you.” Notice the words “among you.” Peter is writing to the church and says, “There will be false prophets among you.” So he is not talking about New Age people on television. He is talking…

The Restoration Of All Things

It was God’s plan from the beginning, Isaiah 46:10, knowing that mankind would fail and fall, as it was His plan from the beginning that restoration (of Mankind to Himself) would be had through His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus, Acts 2:23. – Mike

The restoration of all things…
is God’s ultimate plan…
to bring it back into alignment…
which too many don’t understand.
For God created all things…
and He said it was all good..
but the enemy came to destroy it…
but that plan wasn’t either understood.
Then many fell into Satan’s trap…
and accepted his wrong ways…
so Jesus came to save us…
and teach us to do more than in His days.
But we need to realize this truth…
and allow His Spirit to lead the way…
for it’s only with His Power…
that we can overcome all things today.

Acts 3:21
“Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything,
as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.”
