And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See [thou do it] not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.   (Revelation 19:10)

In The Pharisee’s House

Originally posted on Deb's Blog:

“And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus was at the table in the Parisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil,
and stood at His feet behind Him weeping . . .”  Luke 7:37-38 NKJV

It must’ve taken quite a bit for her to walk into that house.

Thank You, Lord, for never being ashamed of us as we come to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Come to Me
and do not fear

for My eye is on you
to draw you near

walk past the critics
and those who sneer

seek only Me –
your Salvation’s here.

God bless you as you focus on just Him today!

The Christians Labor Day

Originally posted on SettledInHeaven.org Blog:

SIH STSTA ICONThe US holiday we commonly call “Labor Day” was “dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”   (The History of Labor Day”, US Gvt DOL website – http://www.dol.gov/opa/aboutdol/laborday.htm)  In times past, Labor Day was commonly referred to as the “working man’s holiday”.  Specifically set aside in appreciation for the hard work of the American citizen (especially members of the Labor Unions).

Speaking for myself, I always look forward to Labor Day, enjoying an additional paid day off work and much needed time with my family.  But as much as I enjoy the US Labor Day celebration, there is a much greater Labor Day in the future for those of us that are servants of the Lord.  Let’s take a few minutes and learn more about the eternal…

Colossians 1:15-20

Who is this Jesus? It’s a question that has been asked by countless individuals for more than two millennia. And, to be sure, it is the most important question that can ever be asked—or answered. How would you reply?

You may say, “He’s my Savior.” But is He more? “Well, He’s the Lord.” But is He more?

Yes, He is far more indeed. Jesus did something for us that had never been done before: He enabled us to see the Father in a new way. In Colossians 1:15, Paul explains that Jesus is the “image of the invisible God.”

No one has ever looked upon the face of the Almighty. In the Old Testament, some people found themselves in His presence, but they were never able to look fully upon His glory. For example, even Moses, who is described as God’s friend (Ex. 33:11), could not look directly…

John MacArthur – Holy Hatred

John MacArthur – Holy Hatred

Originally posted on Daily Devotions, News and Information:

“Hate evil, you who love the Lord” (Ps. 97:10).

God’s hatred for evil is an extension of His love.

After spending this month exploring fifteen characteristics of godly love, it might seem odd to shift suddenly to the topic of hatred. Additionally, “holy hatred” will sound like a contradiction in terms to those who view all hatred as evil. But love and hate are inseparable. You can’t truly love something and be complacent about the things that oppose or threaten it.

If you love your spouse, you hate anything that would defile or injure him or her. If you love your children, you hate anything that would harm them. If you love good, you hate evil. If you love unity, you hate discord. If you love God, you hate Satan. That’s why Scripture says, “Hate evil, you who love the Lord” (Ps. 97:10) and, “The fear of the Lord is…

ISRAELITES OR JACOBITES??

HEBREW HONEYCOMB

William Andrew Dillard

Much is heard of Israel in their present conflict with a radical segment of Arabic people. Most of the Christian world, and this writer, too, are pro-Israel. The children of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob were the recipients of the Law Covenant from God, and though left desolate in their official rejection of the Messiah, the nation has a future in the work of God. However this should not blind the Bible student to obvious truth regarding the subject, and how that applies to the present people of New Testament Covenant relationship with Him. Please put on your thinking cap!


To be anti-Israel is to be anti-Semitic. But wait, to be anti-Arab would also be anti-Semitic since both descended from Abraham and are by virtue of that Semites. However, Bible students know that God rejected Ishmael, the father of Arabic people as the heir of…

August 24: Strong in His Strength

Originally posted on Truth2Freedom's Blog:

I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.… For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:9–10

paul’s thorn-in-the-flesh experience brought him to the position where he could fully allow the strength of Christ to be his strength.…

Some people today will claim, “Troubles make you strong.” They are wrong. Troubles destroy some people. Troubles weaken others. There is nothing inherent about troubles that results in making us strong emotionally and spiritually. The truth, as Paul stated it so well, is that when we rely upon Christ Jesus in our times of trouble, He makes us strong. He imparts His strength to us and as we receive His strength, we are made strong.[1]

The Robe of Beauty

Originally posted on Still They Speak:

“We are saved by faith, not by works. (Eph. 2:9). Nay, men are said to be justified without works; to be in themselves ungodly when justified: and it is not until they are justified that they perform any real good works. It is only when united to Christ that we bring forth fruit unto God. Hence, we are said to be ‘his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works.’ (Eph. 2:10). All the inward excellence of the Christian and fruits of the Spirit are the consequences, and not the causes of his reconciliation and acceptance with God. They are the robe of beauty, the white garment, with which Christ arrays those who come to him poor, and blind, and naked. It is, then, the plain doctrine of the word of God that our justification is not founded upon our own obedience to the law. Nothing done by us or…
