Today’s reading: Deuteronomy 6.

If you don’t do it, it won’t get done. I’m talking about teaching your children God’s word. It’s up to you. It’s your job. And I’m not talking about just taking your children to church or saying a goodnight prayer. You’ve got to teach them the stories of God’s miraculous encounters with men. You need to tell them, and show them, how God changed your life. You must get God’s word into their hearts.

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up … In the future, when your son asks you, “What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws the LORD our God has commanded you?” tell him: “We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7, 20-21

The False Vision and the True Vision

Two visions are given in the scriptures concerning this earth today. One is true and is from the Hebrew God Yahweh. And one is false. And both of these visions concerning God and His plan are out there on the airwaves, in cyberspace, and in the pulpits.

Since “there is nothing new under the sun,” and since “that which has been is now,” we look back to the prophet Jeremiah’s day. Then there were prophets speaking lies in God’s name to the people of Jerusalem. The Babylonian army was sweeping across the Middle East, and yet, they said that God was saying, “You will not see the sword, neither shall you have famine. But I will give you assured peace in this place” (Jer. 14: 13).

These “men of God” told the people what they wanted to hear–how God was going to spare them from Nebuchadnezzar’s army and how their “faithful worship” would be rewarded by God’s protection during the coming tribulation.

Teens Blog SF33 – He Sees You Beyond the Mirror

Stuart Miles

It is Eating Disorder Awareness month here in the United States. For many teenagers, and even Christian teens, it is a very serious problem. Although it affects mostly teen girls, there is a percentage that also affects teen boys and small children.

The biggest question that many ask to those who have an eating disorder is, “Why? Why would you subject yourself and your body to starvation?” However, it is not that easy of a question to answer. In fact, it is often very difficult to answer because for most teens, they each have their own reasons for believing what they are doing is okay.

Maybe you know a friend who has an eating disorder. Maybe you have a relative with an eating disorder. Or, maybe you are the one with an eating disorder. No matter what the case, God cares. Continue reading

How to Pray for Syrian Christians

 

Please intercede for our brothers and sisters in the Middle East.

J Lee Grady, the former editor of Charisma Magazine, wrote on the 6 biblical ways we can pray when terrorists are beheading Christians:-

“1. Pray for a bold witness of the gospel in the midst of persecution. Persecution was a reality in the New Testament church, but it did not stop the early disciples from spreading the gospel. After Peter and John were arrested and told to stop preaching, they announced: “We cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20). Pray that persecuted Christians will not be intimidated or silenced by acts of terror.

2. Pray for supernatural miracles to confirm the gospel. When the early church faced opposition, they prayed not only for boldness but also for a display of God’s power. They prayed in unity in Acts 4:29-30: “And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that your bond-servants may speak your word with all confidence, while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” Pray that God will bare His arm and show the world that He is real, especially to militant Muslims who don’t know the Savior.

3. Pray that the seed of the martyrs will produce a harvest of converts. When an angry crowd stoned Stephen, the first martyr of the early church, he cried out on his knees: “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” (Acts 7:60). His death was tragic, but it was not in vain. A great outpouring of the Holy Spirit followed his martyrdom. When a born-again Christian gives his or her life for Jesus, God takes note and responds. This could be the greatest hour of spiritual awakening in the Middle East.

4. Pray for heavy conviction to fall on those who persecute the church. Saul was bent on arresting and killing the early disciples, and he watched as Stephen was martyred. Yet shortly after Saul launched his terror campaign, he fell on his face on the Damascus road and was dramatically converted (see Acts 9:3-4). This same miracle can happen today to leaders of ISIS. Don’t limit God’s power—and don’t pray vindictive prayers of judgment on these people. Pray that the most militant persecutors of the church will have a head-on collision with the Son of God.

5. Pray for angelic protection and intervention. During one wave of persecution against the New Testament church, an angel appeared in Peter’s prison cell, woke him up and caused his chains to fall off (see Acts 12:7). Later, after King Herod refused to stop his rule of terror, an angel struck him dead (see 12:23). The Bible does not say the church prayed for Herod’s death; we should never pray with a vengeful spirit, but we should leave room for the wrath of God when mercy runs out.

6. Pray that the global Christian community will work for peace and justice in the Middle East. We cannot just sit back and watch our brothers and sisters being beheaded for their faith while we enjoy our First World comforts. We must be in solidarity with them, not only in prayer but also in action. We should actively support government and church leaders who are working behind the scenes for reconciliation, humanitarian aid and protection for the victims of injustice.

Our response to this wave of terror cannot be fear – or hatred. Don’t just curse the darkness. Be proactive by praying fervently. Ask God to unleash in the Middle East a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit that will not only bring peace-loving Muslims to Christ, but also bloodthirsty Islamic militants who are sharpening their knives for the next attack.”

BIBLE DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Deut 5 – Give it a rest

Give it a rest: Deuteronomy 5

by Dr  Bob Dellinger

https://oneyeardevotional.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/sabbath-commandment-deuteronomy-5/

Today’s reading: Deuteronomy 5.

Deuteronomy retells the law to a new generation. As part of that lesson, Moses restates the ten commandments. Today, much of the law has been replaced by the new covenant of grace. Even Jesus summed up the law and the prophets by saying that the greatest commandment was to love the LORD with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself. But to me, the ten commandments are more than law. They are bedrock principles which provide the moral foundation for living. The first four commands help us relate properly to God: no other gods, no idols, no using God’s name carelessly, and keeping the Sabbath. The next six teach us how to live with others: honor your parents, no murder, no adultery, no stealing, no lying, no desiring what belongs to others. Let’s look at one of those commandments today – the order to observe the Sabbath each week. We seem to downplay its importance even as we maintain the truth of the other commandments.

Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor the alien within your gates, so that your manservant and maidservant may rest, as you do. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.  Deuteronomy 5:13-15

Commissioning – SoS Saturday

Many Waters - SoS header

Let now your breasts be like clusters of the vine,
The fragrance of your breath like apples,
And the roof of your mouth like the best wine.
The wine goes down smoothly for my beloved,
Moving gently the lips of sleepers.

Song of Songs 7:8-9 NKJV

Today we look at the fact that when Christ sees His bride standing in her maturity He gives her a commission.

Notice now that we have a commissioning, or a declaration over her. He is now speaking into her ministry.  “Let now…” Here He speaks a 3 part commissioning over her life.

Breasts like clusters of the Vine – Not only is she called to supply fruit, but be a source of the New Wine. Remember in John 7 where Jesus said:

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'” But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. – John 7:38-39 NASB

HE LIFTS US UP: Secret Angel Ministry’s Aaron’s Rod with “Love”

Years ago my mom said, Love is the key that unlocks all the doors.

Recently, a pastor stated, Love liKe you’ve never been hurt.

A special person in my life said, a life without love means nothing.

30 years ago, my life changed for better because God taught me to live, to give, and love others. At this time, I was broke, sad, lonely, felt unloved and unlovable, and empty when I felt to adapt this way of being, living for my life. Today, I’m prosperous, financially stable, have many friends, fulfilled, more than I need and plenty to give to others.

Today, the challenge is love and give without fear.

God is LOVE... And Love never fails!

Scripture reading: I cor 13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Love never fails…”

How About THESE Rules?

A visitor to Steve McVey’s church handed him a brochure from her church andmcvey invited him to visit. They titled their brochure: “Biblical Standards For Christians”. The brochure claimed scripture support for all their “standards”. Here are a few:

  • No dancing or mixed bathing
  • Do not wear jewelry
  • Do not wear makeup
  • Men must wear their hair short
  • Do not go to ball games, rodeos, circuses, rodeos, bowling alleys, skating rinks or theaters
  • Do not dye your hair
  • Women are to wear “modest clothes with moderate colors and moderate prices with decent dress lengths, sleeve lengths and necklines.” ¹

Many Christians might say such rules are absurd. They aren’t to the folks who embrace them. These rules beg the question: what set of rules do you follow? Some may say, “Oh, I try to live by what the Bible says.”

Living by any set of rules will never achieve God’s best for us. Our lives are not built on a set of rules. We live our lives in Jesus Christ and our relationship with Him. Everything else about us flows out of that relationship.
