The LIVING GOD #CANDLE

#Strife, #Violence, #Destruction are constantly before us today.  No wonder we get #weary.. As I read God’s Bible, I find these words of #wisdom.  Prov.17:11 “An evil man seeks only rebellion”  Prov.17:15 “He that justifies the wicked, and he that condemns the just are both an #abomination to the Lord.”  Romans 13:9-14 “Let us walk honestly in the day; not rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envy.  You shall love your neighbor as yourself – love works no evil to his neighbor..Now is high time to awake out of sleep…..the night is far spent the day is at hand: let us cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armor of LIGHT ..put on the LORD JESUS CHRIST.”  11Sam.22:29 “For THOU ART MY CANDLE, O LORD; and the LORD will lighten my darkness” 

Tongue Talk – Sense in Nonsense

 

      19850915 Tongue Talk - Sense In Nonsense - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Before you think our guest speaker is #DarthVader, just know these old tapes drag sometimes.  #Wit, or #humor, is a wonderful #tool we possess to make our speech more interesting and memorable.  Does the Bible encourage us to use jokes?  I can just imagine God laughing on his throne as the proponents of evolution struggle to figure out the platypus.  What can be warded off using laughter?  But , wasn’t Jesus always serious?  In contrast, what kind of humor is prevalent today?  How can we keep a good thing like humor from getting twisted into something wrong?

The LIVING GOD #TESTS

Georgia has stopped the #test for seniors to receive their high school diploma and even made it retro active for all those who completed the required attendance and courses.  No one likes tests, yet life is filled with testing.  Tests are difficult, yet we want certified professionals in every field.  What does the Bible say about testing?  Jer. 11:20 “the LORD OF HOSTS TESTS THE MIND AND HEART”…17:10″I the LORD TEST the MIND even to give each man according to his ways according to the results of his deeds”  Are you the exception?  Jer.20:12 “LORD TESTS THE RIGHTEOUS”  Prov.17:3 “Refining pot is for silver, and furnace for gold; but the LORD TRIES (TESTS) THE HEARTS”  1Peter1:6-9 “…you have been distressed by various trials that TEST YOUR FAITH, being more precious than gold that is perishable, even though TESTED by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen HIM, you love HIM and though you do not see HIM now, but believe in HIM, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of  glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your soul.”  Now that’s a graduation diploma with the LORD’S SEAL.

Tongue Talk – A Life Without Lies

      19850908 Tongue Talk - A Life Without Lies - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

How often do you tell a #lie?  What do surveys tell us about the frequency of #lying?  What does the Bible say about our tendency to be dishonest?  How does God feel about lies?  How are Christians called to be unusual in regards to lying?  Is there more than one kind of lie?  What does flattery have to do with lying?  What is the worst lie we can tell and why is it the most futile?  How refreshing is it to deal with an honest person?

The LIVING GOD #SEES

Whose #looking at #YOU NOW?  Ever play #hide and #seek?  Jeremiah 23:24 “Can a man hide himself in hiding places, so I DO NOT SEE HIM: declares the Lord.”  Which satellite, computer, tv, or phone is watching you?  Yet, before all this technology existed Jeremiah 16:15,17 tells us “As the LORD LIVES…..MY EYES are on all their ways.  They are not hidden from my face nor is their iniquity concealed from MY EYES”  I am shocked with so many people  wanting to expose their debased behavior before God and the world without shame.  Jeremiah 32:19 “Lord, God great in counsel and mighty deeds, whose EYES ARE OPEN TO ALL THE WAYS of the sons of men, giving to everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds.”   Jer.20:12 “LORD SEES THE MIND AND THE HEART”  1Sam.16:7″…. GOD SEES NOT AS MAN SEES, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD LOOKS AT THE HEART.”

Tongue Talk – The Kickative Mood

      19850901 Tongue Talk - The Kickative Mood - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

It’s been a while since I gave you a Brother Tommy #series.  How about a series on the most #powerful #muscle in the human body, the #tongue.  This week, we will start off with what is wrong with using the tongue to tear others down.  When if ever, is judgment necessary?  Is there such a thing as talking too much?  Are we ever to judge others?  What makes us think that bringing others down, lifts us up?  What did Jesus have to say about it?  How can we avoid it?
