EXPLORING GOD’S WORD 70 [ lesson 5 ]

*Those who die in the Lord —- Rev.14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. (KJV)

JUST THINKING!

I am sitting looking out my window at a beautiful July Summer day;

The weather has been nice and warm, a little humid,

but we should not complain because cold weather comes soon here.

When I was a lad I would lay and look at the clouds quickly pass over in the beautiful

Summer sky. This picture above brought back so many good memories, you might call them precious memories. I wish you all a beautiful Summer!

MY WORD FOR TODAY!

TRUTH: Here is a good quote about truth. God offers to every mind it’s choice between and repose. Take what you please – you can never have both. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

BIBLE TEACHING: John 4:44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.  Jesus went into his own village to teach truth and they did not want to hear the truth and He left before they could harm HIm.  As His followers we today are rejected in many places because they do not want the truth.

TRUTH QUOTE: The trouble about man is two fold. He cannot learn truths which are too complicated; He forgets truths which are too simple.  ~ Rebecca West

BIBLE TEACHING: Psa.25: 5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

TRUTH QUOTE: Truth never hides; yet how hard to find! ~James Lendall Basford (1845–1915), Seven Seventy Seven Sensations, 1897

BIBLE TEACHING: Psa 33: 4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

Psalms 117: 2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

EXPLORING GOD’S WORD 69 CONTINUED

TOPIC: Steadfastness

Lesson three : Steadfastness is a character of the Saints.    Job 17:9 The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.  John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

STEADFASTNESS SHOULD BE MANIFESTED:

a/ IN CLEAVING TO GOD   —- Deut.10:20 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.  Acts 11:23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

b/ IN THE WORK OF THE LORD —- 1 Cor. 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

c/ IN CONTINUING IN THE APOSTLES DOCTRINE —- Acts 2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

d/ IN HOLDING FAST OUR PROFESSION —- Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.  10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

Soaring!

Soon, I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

flying without wings,

caught up in the air,

to meet the Lord of Lords

and the King of Kings.

Soon, I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

I know why,

but I don’t know when,

when I return,

I will be in New Jerusalem.

Soon I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

flying without wings,

to meet in the air,

my Lord of Lords,

and King of Kings!
