    I Want to Break through!

    I hear that if my post counts get to ten, I can attach files. Is it true?

    Are you a self-made man?

    Someone asked "Do you think you're a self-made man?" To which someone replied, "No, I don't think I made myself. I'd have done a better job." I heard this joke once and thought it was hilarious. Hope you did too.
  6. If I could see and talk to my younger self, I'd probably tell him some advice that I would hear from a friend years later: "Hear God and obey Him."

    Where most all Baptist Churches are unbiblical.

    I believe Jesus set only five ministerial positions in the church: Apostles, Prophets, and three teaching ministries: Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers. These ministries in particular are set in place for the edifying, or building up, of the Body of Christ, till our change comes (Eph.4.13). Eph.4.11-13 1Co.12.27-28

    I Want to Break through!

    "You opened the gate to a brand new life when I came to the altar/ You opened the door and Your Spirit filled me through and through/ But now my heart still longs for something deeper/ And I can see light through a veil that You have torn in two/ I want to break through/ I want to break through/ To know as I'm known. To know you alone. I want to break through./ To where no sin can stand in the way. Let me enter in, with boldness I pray/ Oh show me Thy glory. Show me Thy Way/ I want to break through!/" --Dan R.

    How do you study the Bible?

    Sometimes studying the Bible can feel like a chore, but we shouldn't think of it that way, for all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. But one thing that I've noticed when reading the Bible is I can't understand it. That is, not in the light of my natural understanding. (1Co2.14). Only when I get my mind anointed, in the Spirit, am I ever able to understand what God is saying in the scriptures. (1Jo2.27). Therefore, the reading is our job, but the interpretation of what we read must be done by the Holy Ghost. If we are going to walk this narrow path all the way, we must be taught the way to go, for "we have not passed this way before," and the scriptures make it very clear that no woman or man can teach us. This is why Jesus said in Mat11.29: "Take my yoke upon you, and LEARN OF ME; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls." A buddy of mine once made this point very pronounced when he said "Don't study the scriptures. READ the scriptures, and let God unveil them to you. He will make sure you don't miss one ounce of truth." Amen.

    Oh What a Beautiful Morning

    There is a famous song that goes: "Oh what a beautiful morning / Oh what a Beautiful day / Oh what a beautiful feeling / everything's going My Way." We can see in scripture that when Adam and Eve were in the garden, they had a few choices laid in front of them. We all know what they chose. (Rom1.21-23). When Adam failed to believe (hearken to God's voice) and went his own way by his own wisdom (trusted in himself), in that moment, he sinned and died. As a result of Adam's, transgression, we, who were in the loins of Adam, all died in him. 42 generations after God made a covenant with Abraham, He sent the redeemer, the promised seed, Jesus, to purchase us back. To redeem means to purchase. (Rev5.9) If God purchased us, who had sold us out? Adam. It was by one man, Adam that sin entered into the world, and death by sin. Consequently, all those which are the decendents of Adam are, by nature, in the same state that Adam was in when he left the garden: dead in tresspasses and sin. That was our state until Jesus quickened us. Now, we who where once dead in sin, are now alive in Christ. (1Co15.22). Is that the end of the story? No. Just as Adam and Eve, way back there, had a choice, now we do too. Adam got you into sin. Jesus got you out. So now you have gotten a taste and see of each. And it's up to you to decide which you love more. Ladies and gentlemen, the decision is in your hands. "Choose you this day whom ye will serve." There are two options laid in front of you: Your way or His. Amen.
