Feasting On The Word

SCRIPTURE

Ezra stood on the platform in full view of all the people. When they saw him open the book, they all rose to their feet.

Nehemiah 8:5, NLT

QUOTE

Freedom decays as materialism expands.

~John W. Hoover

my thoughts red

Imagine the police or some government agency coming into your house and confiscating all your bibles and any book that had any reference to Jesus Christ. Are you thinking in your mind, “It will never happen, not in America, the land of the brave and home of the free.” When Joe David first told me about Obama being a threat as a serious candidate for president, I thought, “It will never happen.” When he ran against a good business man who may have been able to get us out of this mess and Joe David said, “Daddy, he is going to win again,” I thought, “American’s can’t be that stupid”. When Obama came out for gay marriage, I thought there is no way he can win re-election. Now we are in a battle for the sanctity of marriage and Christians are no where to be seen. We are all acting like Calvinist who are “do nothings” when it comes to moral evils like abortion and same-sex marriage. Do you know how Obama got elected, 40 million evangelical Christians did not vote in the last two elections plus the Calvinist who are growing in number daily.  I have a word for Evangelicals and Calvinist: when God’s judgment comes, it’s coming down your street and mine, no one will be spared: not you, not your children or your grandchildren. Is that what you are praying for? Not me, I am praying for REVIVAL.

If we don’t repent and change our way of thinking they will be taking our bibles in 20 years. Some folks wouldn’t know the difference. We are biblically illiterate and we don’t know how to pray. Ezra opened the scripture and all the people stood for three hours as he taught from the word of God. Then they spent three more hours confessing sin. They  wept when they heard the word of God. I’m just wondering, would we do anything if they took our bibles? Has your love for this world already taken your zeal for the word of God? “God, You are gracious and merciful: have mercy on us and send us a spiritual awakening.”

TODAY WE PRAY FOR THE WORLD

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and you might want to say a prayer for the moron’s in Washington who are about to betray Israel. If we betray Israel, our goose is cooked.

  • There is a great article in last months IMPRIMIS about the cultural war.
  • Everyone needs to subscribe to DECISION MAGAZINE. Get on line and find out how you can get it sent to your home.
  • A young man, who must remain anonymous due to his sensitive nature, told me last night that the two most boring things in the world are graduations and weddings. I told him, “I’ve been to both tonight.” I sat a new record, a 3 minute wedding, no one had time to get bored. Actually, there were only four present. No rehearsal, no mother-in-laws, no director, no moving furniture, no music and no problems. I am not making light of marriage: it was a moving ceremony. If you don’t believe me, ask them.
  • Graduation went great, the speeches were good: I wish to goodness they would do awards at another time but I carried my lawn chair and made it fine. Mr. Chambers did speed up the presentation of diploma’s. I think this was an outstanding class.
  • I am really worried about Big Mama: she has not been to Kroger’s in three days: there is something bad wrong.
  • Patriotic Service this Sunday morning at 10:15. LIFE CHANGING BIBLE STUDY at 9:15. Wendy Greenhaw will be our special guest.
  • Send me pictures of your family members who served in the armed forces, I will use them next Sunday morning in the service. If you know how to put them on our Facebook page, that will work or email them to me, jack@danvillebaptist.org
  • May 29 Senior Adult Cook Out. BBQ chicken and ribs.
  • June 6…Rally for Biblical Marriage in Montgomery. I think the time is 3:00 PM
  • June 8-12…VBS and VBX
