“Really Getting to Know Your God”

I want to invite you to a spiritual feast. You will experience this feast as you take time to study the names of God.

Names are very important. They reveal character traits and ways in which we can experience our God in our lives.

In 2014, Dr. Elmer Towns published a book titled, “The Ultimate Guide to the Names of God.”
I would encourage you to get a copy and work your way through it. As you study the different names for God and what those names mean, I believe you will experience growth in your soul that will enrich your life and relationship with the Father in amazing ways.

“El Shaddai: Almighty God”

Sometimes I wonder if we know that our God, who is personal, is Almighty. He is all powerful, all-knowing, always present and unchanging.

El Shaddai is the One who is strong enough to help us with all of our problems and sensitive enough to care.

When Abraham was seventy-five years old, God appeared to him and called him to follow Him. In Genesis 12:1-3, we read, “The Lord said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.

“Discerning God’s Will”

Call me old-fashioned, but I believe that God has a plan and purpose for every life. I believe this because I see it in so many of the lives in Scripture and I have experienced this in my own life.

I was nine years old when I realized that God loved me and wanted a personal relationship with me. I was at a summer camp; and one evening in a church service, I understood I was a sinner and that Christ died for me on the cross. He wanted to forgive my sin and come into my life as Savior and Lord.

That plan is clearly seen in one of the most familiar verses of Scripture in the Bible – John 3:16.

“My Calling and My Passion”

In June, fifty-eight years ago, I began to fulfill God’s call on my life as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I was quite young, the Holy Spirit etched the following words into my heart —

“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before Me, no god was formed, nor will there be one after Me.

I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from Me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed -– I, and not some foreign god among you. You are My witnesses,” declares the LORD, “that I am God. Yes, from ancient days I am He. No one can deliver out of My hand. When I act, who can reverse it?” (Isaiah 43:10-13)

“We Can Be One Nation Under God — Again”

Our nation had a great beginning.

The reason we have done so well for so long is because the nation was established on Judeo-Christian values. God’s word was our moral and spiritual compass. It has been that way for most of our years of existence — but times have changed and laws have been passed that are taking us further and further away from our foundation.

(In recent times, historians have been omitting our Biblical heritage … text books.)

Note: There is a lesson we should learn from God’s dealings with the children of Israel. As long as they honored and served Him, He blessed them. But when they forgot Him and forsook Him, He disciplined them – even allowing pagan nations to conquer them.

The United States will not escape the judgment of God.

“The Role of the Promised Comforter”

The night before His crucifixion, we find our Lord Jesus sharing with His disciples about the promised Comforter/Holy Spirit.

In John 15:26-27, we read:
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which procedeth from the Father, He shall bear witness of me; and you also bear witness because you have been with me from the beginning”

“A Study About Ananias”

There are two men in the New Testament by the same name.

The first we read about in Acts 5:1-5. He lied about how much he had received for a piece of property he sold. The Holy Spirit revealed to Peter how much Ananias had received. When Peter questioned him, he gave the Apostle a different figure. Peter confronted him about the discrepancy and told him, “you have not lied to man, but to God.” At that very moment, Ananias dropped dead. WOW! That would be an attention getter.

“Being Sifted”

1 Peter 1:3-9

Introduction

On the farm, we had a very important piece of equipment known as a “Fanning Mill”. It was used to sort out the good grain from unwanted contaminants such as bits of straw, chaff, stones and soil particles.

The machine had a series of sieves. The hopper on top was filled with the grain that was to be separated from the weed seeds and other undesirable issues. As you turned the crank, the grain began to make its way through the mill, and the unwanted issues were separated from the good grain.
