Nuggets – Praise from the Creation

Praise from the Creation
“Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.” (Psalm 69:34)

We may not yet understand the full purpose of God in creation, but at least one aspect of that purpose is that all things created should somehow praise their Creator. This theme occurs often in Scripture, especially in the psalms. For example, in addition to the exhortation in our text:

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalm 19:1).

“Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the LORD: for he cometh” (Psalm 96:11-13).

“All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee” (Psalm 145:10).

“Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. . . . Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word: Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars: Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl” (Psalm 148:3-4, 7-10).

The Lord Jesus said that if men should refuse to praise Him and “should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out” (Luke 19:40). Yet even though the whole creation—in its beauty, complexity, and providential orderliness—gives continual praise to its Creator, men perversely have “worshipped and served the creature [or more aptly stated, the creation] more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever” (Romans 1:25).

How poignant, therefore, is the final verse of the book of Psalms: “Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 150:6). HMM

Messianic Poetry – TO ESCAPE DEATH

 

TO ESCAPE DEATH

By Gary Bertnick

A most vital choice hidden
The hopeful discovery that somehow lingers
Treasure waits in the fields of our will,
Inner desire to live
Mysterious tug of eternity within,
What should be, is not
What could be, lost forever;
Far beyond human reach
An impossible snare itself stares back in every mirror,
Our Self deceitfully, forcefully exulted.
Across the evening sky at every sunset
A golden banner trumpets loudly-
“Turn to Me. Choose new life!”
But death devours the coming new day
Darkness masquerades as lasting reality
Lies and fear blend together powerfully
A strong brew for tyrants and dictators
Political, religious and economic frauds who control as leaders,
Emptiness, nothingness on constant display
Ceaselessly marketing this shallow life as somehow meaningful,
A satisfying thing.
The only Living God has often spoken
Even His “Word Made Flesh” walked His Earth,
Living Words echo masterfully throughout the Universe
Vibrant throughout all known and seen creation;
And who among us all will listen
Who will seek to hear God’s Voice-
“Now is the time. Today is the day!”
The door of salvation stands open
As large as Messiah’s heart
Yet, soon to close…
Who is left among the cities and nations to choose life?
To receive salvation to escape the SECOND DEATH?

Please pray for the Nepali people – Earthquake 2015 !

I have not heard from my Nepalese contacts in and around Pokhara where we held our Vacation Bible School in November 2014. However there are estimated  970 dead at Katmandu ( the capital) and surrounding areas ( including landslides in the mountains of Nepal)  as newspapers report.

There is a contingent of Gurkhas (GC)  in the Singapore police

Members of the GC are trained to be highly skilled and are selected for their display of strong discipline and dedication in their tasks. The principal role of the contingent is to be a special guard neutral force ( in early days of inter racial riots between Chinese and Malays) , and it is currently used as a counter-terrorist force.

The Singapore police force is sending a contingent of rescuers and the Red Cross fund has been initiated with the government contribution of $ 100,000 as more funds are expected from Singaporeans. .

Please pray that the Nepalese will get all the help they need at this time of disaster and that the minority group of Christians will be bolstered by prayers and supplies from international brothers and sisters in Christ, to be shared with the victims.

POSTCRIPT:

All SEED ministry  workers and  believers at Pokhara are  safe. Praise The Lord.

Many houses destroyed. One village had all houses flattened except the Pastor’s house.

SEED is responding with cash to help Akash’s team to buy shelter, food, medicine. Rev Allan scheduled to be in Katmandhu on May 4. Please pray for all involved to have wisdom and to be channels of blessings of God’s love.

Messianic Poetry – A NIGHT VISION

A NIGHT VISION

By Gary Bertnick

http://www.silvercordspirit.com/pages/pdfs/From%20Above/Part%201.pdf

A night vision-

Shackles hold a man upright

Chains from the ceiling

Stripped bare, much skin tom open

Joints strained, muscles stretched

Dirty concrete floor, splattered,

Yet, words mumbled, over and over and over.

BIBLE DAILY DEVOTIONAL – 2 Kings 17 – The end of Israel

The end of Israel: 2 Kings 17

golden-calf

Today’s reading 2 Kings 15-17.

The northern kingdom of Israel fell to the Assyrians two hundred years after they separated from the united kingdom at the time of Solomon’s death. Twenty years before that the tribes to the east of the Jordan River had been captured and deported. The Israelites who did not flee were deported throughout the Assyrian empire (modern-day Syria and Iraq). From the first days of Jeroboam to the last days of Hoshea no godly king led Israel.

Christ’s Doctrine Is Astonishing

Originally posted on The Milk of the Word:

The most distinguishing characteristic of Christ’s doctrine is that it is astonishing. “And they were astonished at His doctrine, for His word was with power” (Luke 4: 32).

The word “astonished” in the Greek means “to be struck with amazement as by lightening.” The Latin roots of our English word is “to be thunderstruck.” In both, there is an attack on our complacency. We are shocked and shaken, as when a lightening bolt and its deafening blast of thunder hits so close that it frightens us and shakes us to our core. That is what the doctrine of Christ does to the hearer.

He owned the words He was saying, and they had a force that shook up the hearers. His word was with power because He did not speak words about  the word of God, but He spoke God’s words. Big difference. Christ’s mouth was God’s mouth, and…
