Have you ever had a discussion with someone who wronged you? During the conversation they wept, and seemed to feel sorry, only to repeat the same thing again?
Let’s look at this account:
David became Saul’s enemy because the women said that Saul hath slain his thousands and David his ten thousands (1 Samuel 18;7), after the fight with the Philistine i.e. Goliath (1 Samuel 18;6). From that time on Saul tried to kill David.
Many of us are familiar with the account of Noah in the bible. God told him to prepare an ark before the world was destroyed with water.
Let’s look at the brief account in the book of Hebrews:
Hebrews 11; 7
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
Our God has not changed and He is still jealous over us. Why? This is because He loves us so much He wants us to Himself alone, (Exodus 34;14, 1 Corinthians 10;22). It’s actually a beautiful place to be, fully and totally committed to the Lord.
The old testament has several warnings about idols; ( Leviticus 19;4, 26;1), and while some parts of the world still have golden images and symbols that physically represent idols , the reality is that idols still exit everywhere.
When you are faced with a decision to make, what criteria do you base your choices on?
Many of us have heard about the young ruler in scripture, let’s have a closer look:
Matthew 19: 16 – 23
16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Many of us have read the book of Judges (Judges 16; 1 – 26) with the account of Samson, and thought “how can someone do that”? Well in reality it did happen. Reading this recently, l saw something different.
Judges 16;4 says it all “And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah”. This verse clearly states that “he loved a woman”, however it is very clear from the account that Delilah did not love him.
We have all heard about faith, however without another very important factor we will struggle. So what is it?
James 1; 2-4
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
A good fight means that we have already won.
So why does the bible admonish us to “fight the good fight of faith” (1 Timothy 6; 12), if there was no fight? The honest truth is that as a Christian we are in a fight.
Do you realise that the clouds speak tremendous truth?
Here is some beauty you can behold from the clouds!
Jesus is coming back with clouds!
Revelation 1: 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Matthew 26; 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
A sign is a symbol that points to something of more significance. Any object action, event, pattern etc. that conveys a meaning is a sign.
Looking at the account when God told Moses to get the children of Israel out of Egypt, Pharaoh did not set his heart on those signs leading to hardness of heart. If Pharaoh had allowed the children of Israel to go after the first sign, he and his host would not have ended up the way they did. Exodus 4: 8 reads “And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign”. In other words, a sign has a voice. Its speaking something.
In the book of Exodus we have the account where Moses went up to mount Sinai twice to receive instructions and the ten commandments from God. He was in the mount for 40 days and 40 nights (Exodus 24; 18) on both occasions (Exodus 34; 28).
The first account can be found from (Exodus 24; 18 to 31; 18) and (Exodus 32 ).
Heavens agenda in any situation is several steps up higher than what we are thinking. Kevin Zadai.
