DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them]." Mk 11:22-24

MORNING

Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace have
kissed each other.

A JUST God and a Saviour.

The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.

God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them.--Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.--He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.--Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.--To him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

2 Co. 5. 19.--Ro. 3. 25, 26.--Is. 53. 5.--
Ro. 8. 33.--Ro. 4. 5.


EVENING

How are the dead raised up? and with
what body do they come?

B ELOVED, now are we the sons of God, . . . it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.--As we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

The Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: . . . shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.--He was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: after that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once.

If the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

GOD'S BIBLE NAMES - (365 Bible Names & Titles for God)

GOD'S BIBLE NAMES 5/6
"SON OF ABRAHAM"

Matt 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Three titles in one verse, "Jesus Christ --- Son of David --- Son of Abraham." Abraham was the head of the covenant nation. God had given to him the promise that in his seed all nations of the earth be blessed. Jesus submitted to the Hebrew law in righteousness. He lived as a Hebrew, He preached to the Hebrews. He died for the Hebrews as well as for all the people. "So then, they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham" (Gal 3:9). How wonderful! God manifested in the flesh as Abraham's seed and yet the One who made the promise to Abraham!

Oh, Thou promised seed of Abraham and Son of God, our Savior, hold us fast in Thy Word. Amen.

SIMPLICITY!

Life is really quite simple. Every living creature knows how to die. There are no schools that teach this - nor any of the other hundreds of other instincts which are native to mortality. If a creature breathes, it knows how to die - just like that!

It could be noted that, of all God's creatures, only man complicates the life God Breathes in him. Which is odd, actually - since all life is God-Breathed in just this way. How is it then that man takes that from God which is pure, innocent, simple and good - and turns it into such abominations?

Complexity is never of-God. I mean - really! - take a look! Try mapping the stars and the galaxies and constellations - for multitude, they remain un-numbered. And then throw in their orbits, trajectories and assorted relationships - and there is no complication here. Some mammals have gone so far as to coin their own opinion in the term "chaos theory" - HA! - they do not know the God Who Created it all - quite simply! He SPOKE, and it WAS - and IS - just as He SAID.

Jesus was never obtuse, unclear nor complicated. His Simplicity was utterly astounding - and still is! In fact, one of the most arresting things about Jesus Christ (to any cluttered mortal) is His Absolute, Sincere, Moral, Ruthless, Childlike Simplicity! And He spoke of field lilies, sparrows and 'little ones'. His Directness was stunning - and His Discerning Discipline to That Life God Created - Breath-taking! He was a Quickening Spirit - Life Giving - Simple!

God Thinks, Acts, Speaks, Desires, Moves in Ways Mysterious to man. And PART of that is because of the myopia of material-mortality. Sin deceives by distortion - and then destroys by division. We were Made by God to RECIPROCATE with Him in Simplicity. Faith DOES this. So do the flowers! And WE can in Christ, if we will!

Simplicity - for us mortals, it takes our LETTING God Sort us out. But then, when was the last time you saw a flower cower at the prospect of it's own demise?

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)



THE OLD BOOK AND THE OLD FAITH

’Mid the storms of doubt and unbelief, we fear,
Stands a Book eternal that the saints hold dear;
Thro’ the restless ages it remains the same—
’Tis the Book of God, and the Bible is its name!

Refrain

The old Book and the old faith
Are the Rock on which I stand!
The old Book and the old faith
Are the bulwark of the land!
Thro’ storm and stress they stand the test
In every clime and nation blessed;
The old Book and the old faith
Are the hope of every land!

’Tis the Book that tells us of the Father’s love,
When He sent His Son to us from Heav’n above,
Who by richest promise creates hope within,
For ’tis through His blood we are saved from every sin!

Refrain

’Tis the Book that tells us of the will of God
And the Savior’s teachings while the earth He trod—
How He soothed earth’s sorrows and relieved its woe,
Through Whom strength is given to conquer every foe!

Refrain

’Tis the Book that tells us of eternal life,
After faithful service in a world of strife,
And this glorious triumph over death’s dark fears
Is the world’s best gift in an age of countless tears.

Oh, the grand old Book and the dear old faith
Are the Rock on which I stand!
Oh, the grand old Book and the dear old faith
Are the hope of every land!

They who do not Repent - are not God's!
2Tim 2:19 "Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, (1) The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, (2) Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from (stop) iniquity (rebelling)."
(REPENT!)

'SOUL FOOD' - an audio-book by G.D. Watson - Ch. 19 of 32

Chapter 19 - "CONCERNING ANNIHILATION"
-- G.D. Watson lived in England, in the early part of the 1900's --




One of the most whimsical and foolish delusions which Satan in recent years has palmed off on some shallow-thinking Christians is the heresy that the souls of the wicked are to be annihilated. This error was never known among the ancient heathens, who believed, even before they had a revealed religion, that the souls of the good and the bad both exist forever.

There is no darkness like that which comes from rejected light. The rejection of the plain teachings of God's word has brought greater infidels than the heathen ever knew, and more heresies than the ancients ever dreamed of.

This notion of the annihilation of the wicked is propagated by putting a false meaning upon the Bible words "destruction" and "punishment." The word "destroy" does not mean to annihilate, but to wreck, ruin, render utterly useless for the purpose for which it was made. The words "everlasting destruction, "everlasting punishment," are perverted into meaning annihilation. If the wicked are to be annihilated and their punishment will not be everlasting, then their destruction will not be "everlasting." The everlastingness of punishment is put opposite the everlastingness of reward; and if it does not mean everlasting in the one case, neither does it mean that in the other.

Again, the word "death" is perverted into meaning annihilation. But the term "death" is the opposite of "life," and not the opposite of existence. Life and death are opposites; and it is false reason to take the opposite of life and make it mean the opposite of something else. We know in the realm of nature and of mind, that death is not annihilation. A piece of plank is dead; it was once a living tree, full of life, and the life has now left it; but it still exists. A dead human body still exists, with all its members and organs, though the life has left it; yet not one particle is annihilated. And in the realm of mind, Satan and evil spirits are dead in sin-they are separated from the true life of God, which is love; and yet they exist. And just as truly and as rationally as demons have an existence, who are separated from the life of God, so the souls of the wicked will exist forever, though dead in sin. This is implied in the words of Jesus, when He shall say: "depart from me, ye cursed, into hell, prepared for the devil and his angels." These very words imply that the wicked exist co-extensively with Satan and bad angels.

Again, there is not a single hint in the whole realm of matter of all kinds that anything will ever be annihilated. The Holy Spirit says, in Ecc. 3: 14: "I know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever; nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it, and God doeth it that men should fear before Him.

This statement covers the whole extent of creation. There is no sign that any atom of matter has ever been annihilated. Created substances can undergo a thousand changes-solids become liquids, liquids solids, gases turn into rocks, and rocks into vapor-and there is no trace in the history of the world of anything like annihilation. And so in the human mind; we may forget millions of things, but under certain mental conditions, every event in our past lives can be recalled to the recollection.

This delusion of annihilation bears upon its very face the handiwork of the devil; it is just the doctrine that will suit the wicked-give them license to live as they please in this life, with the hope of plunging into non-existence when they leave this world.

No Christian can entertain an error like this without weakening the spiritual life, for all error is poison to the soul. Yet there are many people who fancy they can walk in communion with the Holy Ghost, and yet drink down this heresy that is afloat in the world. Some professed Christians fancy that they are more merciful than the Lord, and they think it will help out the doctrine of divine mercy to accept of the doctrine of mercy from the devil, for it is his aim to turn every truth of the word of God into a lie.
