"And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud …

Day Eighty One – Dealing With Sin In The Church

There is probably nothing more sure and clear than the title of this post, "Dealing With Sin in the Church”.  To ask, “Is there sin in our churches?” is a very unnecessary question.  Where there is a church without sin; it is of their own confession; and not the truth.  Besides where there is people …

Day Seventy Eight – Loved Not Their Lives Unto Death

We have heard it said, “I will love the Lord, even unto death”; Peter said something similar to that; even as the Lord told him “You will deny Me three times”. The Scripture reading this morning was in Acts 1 through chapter 13.  There will be some concluding study in chapter 14. These events give …

Day Seventy Two – Discourse to Death

The Scripture reading for today is Matthew 11 through chapter 23. Every Sunday Christians gather in remembrance; not of His death, but His resurrection. We often fail to remember that Jesus was more than a martyr though.  He was more than a man dying for a cause.  He was the Man sent to fulfill all …

Day Thirty Three – Look Again

Our reading today is Nehemiah 11 - Esther 10.  The commentary this morning will deal solely with Esther. Esther is a book of the Bible that never names the name of God.  God is not even mentioned in person; however the work, power and presence of God is clearly seen by those who have the …

Day Thirty – The Peril and Power of Pride; Without Prejudice

It is written in Proverbs, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18).  Pride even gets into the hearts and minds of the best among us; and that is never more clear to me than when I was reading in 2 Chronicles 18 – 31 this morning. I read of …

Day Twenty Nine – Revival

The Scripture reading for today is 2 Chronicles 5 - 17. One of the things you will notice about the Chronicles is that they maintain a fairly positive approach to the lineage of David, yet do mention their failures, and their turning from the LORD. This morning I took note of king Asa, and the …

Day Twenty Seven – Priest and King

David, as a shepherd boy, had a heart for God.  While he was doing the task of taking care of the family flock and herds he meditated upon God and His Word; writing and singing songs [Psalms].  He would become angry when ever he heard an enemy or anyone defy the name of Jehovah [YHWH].  …
