BIGGEST COMMA IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, PART 2

There is a whole lot more to that great COMMA from Isaiah 61:2a ( To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lordand the day of vengeance of our God;and what follows it, as I discuss in sequence from the Scriptures. These events, which follow the Comma therein, lead up to the upcoming scene on Judgment Day when all mankind will stand before God in shock and awe. We know that no-one will be speaking back to God, especially those who are before the Great White Throne – the very worse position one can ever be in.

As we saw in the Part 1, God has a series of indictments which will be presented in His Courtroom on Judgment Day. We, who have been saved and have had our sins washed clean by the Blood of the Lamb, know exactly what this means and the thought of That Day brings much fear and trembling.  Here again are the Charges God has against ALL mankind for which they will answer (Romans 3:10-18)

FEAR OR FAITH – YOU MAKE THE CALL

Fear is the absence of Faith. Fear does not mean you are not a believer. But let’s face it, it does mean you don’t believe God in this particular circumstance. You may even think He has left you on your own at this particular time! Again, this is the tendency of the natural man/woman.

How many times, from the front of the Bible to the back of the Book, has God said “Fear not….!” FEAR NOT or some variation thereof. There is no more all encompassing promise from Father than what God said in Joshua 1:9 - ”Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Even Christians would say something like “well sure, Joshua is God’s General and leader of the Israelites!” That is true. But time and again, we are told and know instinctively (if you’re a child of God”) that the Bible was given for our instruction. We either believe it is “God-breathed” or it is a book of fairy tales!  The choice is yours. But remember that if you and I make the wrong choice, the blessings are short-circuited!

If a nominal Christian would not accept the Old Testament word to Joshua above, how about the Word of Jesus in the New Testament? The most literal English Translations of the Bible are the New American Standard (NAS) and the English Standard Version (ESV).

WHY AMERICA LOVES DUCK DYNASTY!

This week, the A & E Reality Series “DUCK DYNASTY” became the most watched television show in America – on both network AND cable TV! It blew out anything else on NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and all the other well-known cable nets like USA, TBS etc. The viewership of the Bearded Dudes from Da Bayou of Monroe, Louisiana has been rising steadily since February. This past week, it more than doubled the viewership of the perennial ratings giant – American Idol!

So why is a show about a family of self-confessed “rednecks”, who don’t shave and live faithfully and happily with their God-given wives; shoot guns and thank Jesus for their food so popular? I will tell you why – this is how the average traditional-minded American lives (or wished that he/she lived)! The Duck Dynasty concept is based on the true lives of the Robertson family, who worked hard, prayed hard and played by the rules. As a result, they did build it! They built a million dollar business based on selling one hand-made custom-made duck call, at a time!

FAITH IS……

Faith means many things, to many people.

We can have full faith and confidence in United States currency!

We can have faith in our fellow man to do the right thing!
We can have faith our governments are really looking out for the people!
We can have faith our children will grow up have a better life than we do!

Can we really say with the confidence that all these things will be so….

DAY 16 – CAN PRAYER SAVE AMERICA?

With all pistons firing – i.e. Mental Clarity, Wisdom, Discernment et al – we look at the fuel which powers our prayers – FAITH! EM Bounds says, among other things, that “Prayer is Faith claiming and taking hold of its natural, immeasurable inheritance. Moreover, when Faith ceases to pray, it ceases to live”.

 This sort of powerful definition of prayer, has been misunderstood in the American century of Faith as a business, by fly-by-night prosperity gospel hucksters, who have turned the “claiming and taking hold of the inheritance part”
