It’s All About Jesus

THE LIVING GOD – IS

THE LIVING GOD – IS
from Barbara's Bible

“Depends on what is – is!”  Have you ever heard that phrase used in a conversation?  Today, I hear words coming from people’s mouths that depict truth according to their view point;  however, I believe that absolute truth comes from the Word of the Lord.  May I share….”The LORD IS GOOD….The LORD IS GOOD TO ALL” Ps.34:8, 145:9    “The LORD IS UPRIGHT:  HE IS MY ROCK, there IS NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN HIM“Ps.92:15    “GOD IS MY REFUGE AND FORTRESS” Ps.91:2    “GOD IS MY ROCK and MY SALVATION and MY DEFENCE(PROTECTION)” Ps.61:2     “See that you do not refuse Jesus words.  For they escaped not who refused Him that spoke on earth, much more we shall not escape if we turn away from Him that speaks from heaven:  His voice then shook the earth: but promised,saying, ‘Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven…wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:  For OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE.” Heb.12:27-29   “Fear not…..your MAKER IS YOUR HUSBAND; LORD OF HOSTS IS HIS NAME; and REDEEMER and HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL; GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH SHALL HE BE CALLED.” Isaiah 54:4,5   “Seek the LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while HE IS NEAR” Is.55:6

What is a #conscience and can it change over time?  What does the #Bible say about the existence of our conscience?  How does it differ from the way we were raised or taught?  Can the enemy use our conscience against us?  Can a dulled conscience be trained and sharpened again?  Should we follow the Word of God or our own conscience when they differ?  Do non-Christians have a conscience?

Next week we will look at what the Bible says about developing conclusions.

THE LIVING GOD – HOUSE

THE LIVING GOD – HOUSE
from Barbara's Bible

How’s you’re house?  After two major hurricanes slammed the U.S. with devastating wind and rain many structures are destroyed.  Here in the heart of the south, the song was resounding “The night the lights went out in Georgia!”  Schools are closed all week after downed power lines from falling trees have to be removed and lines restored.  So many homes, businesses, and streets are covered with debri from the storms’ destruction which have people working around the clock to restore liveability!  I was without power for thirty hours using flash lights while trying to connect the the small generator to the refrigerator (thankful my son-in-law did it and saved the frozen food)  My ordeal included downed tree limbs, loss of power, security, and the internet; however, many others have total devastation which cannot be patched only replaced.  Does the Bible tell us anything about the house of GOD?  Ps.27:4,5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock.  One thing have I desired of the LORD, that I will seek after; that I MAY DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE”,... I know when the wind and rain were howling around my dwelling, I was in prayer before my Savior Jesus Christ asking for His covering.  Yes, I had a builder that constructed a strong home, but I know the master builder.  Heb. 3:4 “For every house is built by some man; but He that built all things is GOD.”  Through darkness and disaster Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me.  IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS: if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you….I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John4:1-3,6 “JESUS SAID, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE:  NO MAN COMES UNO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.”  My prayer for all those suffering from the storms is that you may have the peace that passes understanding through trusting our LIVING LORD.

What does the #Bible say about how our #ethics ought to shape #society? How should we treat the disadvantaged and downtrodden? How should we interact with government? What could be wrong with a super patriotic point of view? Is it better to work toward a New World Order? How separate should church and state be? Brother Tommy touches on some recent headlines form healthcare to automation. He also gets into the topic of war, capital punishment, and imprisonment.

Sorry for the delay and sudden reappearance of these blogs.  Next week we will look at what the Bible says about developing a conscience.

From the #job you choose to pursue to the way you do the job, what role does #ethics play?  Are your ethics determined by your #industry, your #boss, your #customers, your #peers, or by #God?  Do you give a full amount for a fair price?  How do you feel about serving others?  How much profit is reasonable?  What are some of the pressures involved in your work environment?  Is competition a good or bad thing?  What does the Bible say about conforming to your environment?  What are some changes you can make to correct a bad situation?

Next week we will look at what the Bible says about tangible ethics of a societal nature.
