NO EXCUSES
“I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes and you will keep My judgments and do them” [Ezekiel 36:27]
You have surely heard the saying, “It is the ‘buts’ that separate the sheep from the goats’.  Two points of interest - it is the goats that butt heads all the time; a sure sign of rebellion and then of course there is the phrase of the unrepentant.  But… you just don’t know my...

FULFILLING PROPHECY

FULFILLING PROPHECY
“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage”  [Psalm 84:5]
In the first two months of 2014, French Jewish aliyah [returning home] increased precipitously by 312% with 854 French Jews making aliyah over the first two months.  Immigration from France throughout 2014 has been attributed to several factors, of which includes increasing anti-Semitism, in which many Jews have been harassed and attacked by a fusillade of local thugs and gangs, a stagnant European...

Sustainable environment of JOY!

Sustainable environment of JOY!
“You will show me the path of life, in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” [Psalm 16:11]
I once heard a pastor say - “Joy was the imperturbable assurance that God is in control!”  And so it is!  But, how can this state of existence happen and once reached how then is it sustained?
First, knowing that God is exemplified in Christ; Christ, who is the reality of God among us...

ARE YOU BEING SIFTED?

Posted Feb 24th 2015, 12:00 by MORNING LIGHT on Evangelism/Missions


ARE YOU BEING SIFTED?
“Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say” [Isaiah 28:23]
I remember when I was a young girl and helped my dad prepare a seed box to plant seeds.  First I filled the sifter with soil and then began to sift or shake the soil through the sifter.  Only the fine good soil landed in the seed box; unwanted stones or larger clods of soil were left in the sifter to be thrown aside.  ...

WHY ARE YOU DIGGING?

WHY ARE YOU DIGGING?
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field.  When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.”  [Matthew 13:44]
I received an e-mail the other day from a very dear sister in the Lord.  Her confession was…I’m weary and I’m tired of digging. 
As human beings we create habits so easily that we may forget the motive or the ‘why’ we...

THE POWER OF GOD

THE POWER OF GOD
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Yesterday we wrote about touching Jesus and being healed.  The whole idea is that He will touch you and, when He does, there is power for you to touch and heal the nations.  God has said, “Ask of me and I will make the...

INEXPRESSIBLE and GLORIOUS JOY!

INEXPRESSIBLE and GLORIOUS JOY!
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now,  you believe in him and are fillled with an inexpressible and glorious JOY! “ (1 Peter 1:8)
If your religion makes you miserable, then try a relationship with Jesus Christ!  It is joy inexpressible and glorious!   To look at some Christians would make any unsaved person run in the opposite direction, always full of negative talk and dire circumstances.  Yuk! 
In spite...

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!
“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself?” (1 Corinthians 6:15)
You are not alone.  You are never alone.  You are a part of a spiritual body known as “the Body of Christ.”
You are either joined at the “hip” of another human being or joined at the heart of Jesus Christ.  What is it that reveals the truth?   Ask yourself this question:  who do you rely upon for decision making, relinquish your body to, (which is the...

WINNERS ARE WISE

Posted Feb 17th 2015, 12:00 by MORNING LIGHT on Evangelism/Missions


WINNERS ARE WISE
“In repentance and rest is your salvation; in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it”  (Isaiah 30:15)
Take another look at this familiar scripture.  “In” repentance is different than needing, knowing and hearing the word repent.  To be “in” something is to be at rest in a certain position that has already been provided for you.   Isaiah goes on to say, “you wouldn’t stop long enough to recognize that in the position you’ve already...

RING OF VICTORY!

RING OF VICTORY!
“…we have no might to stand against this great company that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”    (2 Chronicles 20:12)
Everyone has those times when it seems like the whole world is coming against you!  Your feelings run away with you and you do your best to run away from your feelings.  That’s exactly what the Israelites felt like and did when facing the giants.  They thought themselves...

LOVE

LOVE
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us…” (1 John 3:1)
In 2014 during surgery, four stents were placed in the arteries of my heart. During this process the Spirit of God spoke the following words of encouragement: “My love is able to bring life into that which was dead, restore the broken places and remove every blockage.” 
What an immense difference in life and energy was given to me as blood flowed more freely bringing greater life and...

PASSION

PASSION
“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death” (Philippians 3:10)
“I have a significant ‘other,’” the young women said, a statement which generally means a “live-in” mate, not by Holy Matrimony but a “for now” commitment. 
The world’s way of doing things is and always has been temporary and like the flesh will see the end of its days.   But what if we took the “significant other” concept...

EVERY GOOD THING!

Posted Feb 11th 2015, 12:00 by MORNING LIGHT on Evangelism/Missions


EVERY GOOD THING!
“…no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” (Psalm 84:11c)
First, we have been promised that God is a son and shield, then God says He treats us with “favor and honor.”  This morning there is the promise of every good thing.  That is a parental relationship that staggers the mind.  Reasoning will never discover the meaning, but by faith we accept what God says is what God does!
By faith Paul said the same thing:”And...

Full Supply

Full Supply
“…the Lord bestows favor and honor…” (Psalm 84:11b)
Painfully we are learning that when the vows or constitution that was written by those who founded a nation are ignored, the people and nation suffer.  Like the principles of nature or life itself, when neglect takes over, destruction ensues. 
One of the kingdom secrets is that your life attracts “like kind.”  Some call it the “law of attraction.”  Scripturally it is heard in Job’s words, “As I have observed, those who plow evil...

Time to Receive

Time to Receive  
“For the Lord God is a sun and shield, ….” [Psalm 84:11]
What is your need and what are you receiving from God this morning?  This verse was one of the first that the Spirit slipped into my heart as a rhema word [living word].  Prioritize this morning.  Let the practical needs take second place and you’ll find a storehouse of treasure you never dreamed possible.  This week we’ll look at this entire verse and the awesome promises it...
