SEVEN THINGS GOD HATES: #7 – DISUNITY IN THE REMNANT

There are more divisions in the western world over the Gospel of Jesus Christ than there are plays in the Seattle Seahawks offensive playbook. In fact, the only thing most real Christians ever agree on is that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Who was born as a baby, nailed to a Cross and everyone (except some liberal dying mainline denominations) believes He rose from the dead, on Resurrection Sunday.
So why is discord sown among the brethren – something which the Lord hates, by the way? The answer can be found in human nature. The seeds of discord were being sowed, believe it or not, while Jesus was still alive!Here were the greatest men who ever lived, after the LORD Himself of course, yet some of them were debating who would be the greatest (see Luke 9:46-47 “46An argument started among them as to which of them might be the greatest. 47But Jesus, knowing what they were thinking in their heart, took a child and stood him by His side)

THE TIMELESS CLASSIC: BEN-HUR

CURRENT REMAKE IN THE WORKS AT MGM!

Before anyone think it is strange that I would be reviewing a movie that has been around for almost 54 years, check this! MGM, the makers of this version of BEN HUR is in the process of raising the capital for a massive remake of the Lew Wallace book, which spurred this classic epic into existence! This monthly movie review feature aims for cutting edge commentary which never conforms to current cultural configurations. Therefore, for this wonderful month, we look at an action packed thriller set around the time of Jesus Christ: BEN-HUR!

FORGIVE US…AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS

It is easy (I hope) to forgive the rotten boss who favors another person over you, in spite of the quality of your good work.
It is easy to forgive the rude sales clerk, who shortchanged you at the cashier register, and then you go back and she is apologetic.
It is easy to forgive your own kids when they mess up, because we love them.
It is easy to forgive or be forgiven, by a spouse for an entire list of offenses…and on and on!
What about the drunk driver who killed your only son? It happened to my close friend and fellow minister, Nate (not his real name). A drunk driver killed his 25 year old son in Pittsburg in 2008. Nate, a powerful servant of Christ, went through all kinds of emotions, anxiety, trauma, tears and more.
During the trial for the drunk driver, less than two years, ago, when Nate forgave the woman who killed his son in court, it made the news in Pittsburg. More importantly, it lifted a burden of pain off him, which only Christ can do.
The hurt and pain are still there, but the forgiveness Nate showed accomplished two things – he allowed the Power of God to free him AND he gave that young scared woman, a chance at redemption!
What Nate did here, was what Jesus Christ would have done! Remember what He said from the Cross “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do!”

As we look at the next two phrases in our in depth study of the LORD’s Prayer, think about what I just said above.

THE CLEANSING POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD!

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness“… 2 Timothy 3:16 (ESV)
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”…Hebrews 4:14 (ESV)
“He (Jesus) is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God.”…Revelation 19:13( ESV)

Now, here is what happened when King Josiah heard the “Book of the Law” (The Torah or First Five books of the Scripture. These were the actual words given to Moses from God which he recorded from Genesis to Deuteronomy, They are full of the Promises of God, His covenants and His setting the captives free from Slavery in Egypt. These Words really so full of Holy Spirit power, they lasted throughout the many years to such a time as this!

Read 2 Kings 22:11 (ESV) “When the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his clothes” .
