DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this [is] our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this [is] the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation." Isa 25:9

MORNING


When he shall appear, we shall be like
him; for we shall see him as he is.

A S many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.--Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.--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.--As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.


1 JOHN 3. 2. John 1. 12.--2 Pe. 1. 4.
Is. 64. 4. 1 Co. 13. 12.--Phi. 3. 20, 21.--
Ps. 17. 15.


EVENING

The man that is my fellow, saith the
LORD of hosts.

I N him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.--I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.--I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me.

Great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh.--Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

The brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high. . . . Unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever.

Let all the angels of God worship him.

KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

"A PROPHET MIGHTY IN DEED AND WORD"

Luke 24:19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

Some hated Him. Some worshipped Him. Mighty in life, mighty in death and mighty in Resurrection! The rulers thought they had eliminated Him. Some seek to do so today. They crucify Him in fulfillment of Scripture, but He is Alive today! He lives in the hearts of millions who would be willing to be crucified for Him. He will live throughout the eternal ages and every Word He every uttered will be fulfilled to the Letter!

O, Thou mighty Prophet, help us to lay hold of the Word with intensified faith and hold fast until Thou shalt come. Amen.

Let's get HIGH!!

Cheap thrills are grist for the entertainment mill of man's amusement attractions. We like to be titilated, donchaknow?! If it's scary, or hair-raising, or daring - we like it. It's fun.

But when fun or any other form of exhilaration becomes a form of escape-ism, we have a problem. There are chemical 'highs', too. And these pack a real wallop when it comes to running away from our 'reality' (circumstances).

Playing with fire usually ends in our getting burned. And that's just what happens when we prefer to ignore what is obvious, or evade the truth we are loath to accept. Denial is deception. And fear breeds best in dark places - especially those places of ignorance, in the mind. What we don't see CAN affect us - and often in irreversible ways. Once a soul is smitten by deceit (becomes a liar), that soul is tainted and crippled forever by it. This is not to say that God cannot Heal that soul - but there are some things even God Cannot (Will not) change!

A Repentant murderer has still committed murder, after all. And once we have committed suicide - that's it! O my! Dodging what we prefer to avoid is dangerous.

But there are ways in which we can "get high" (become exhilarated) in Christ. One way is to Share HIM with others. And THIS "high" is Healthy! We are Exhorted by the Apostle to be "Filled with The Spirit!". And there is great delight in the Joy of The Lord! But God would never have us dabble with deceit or pretend against Truth. He Calls us to Accountability - in Christ. Even so, there is that Joy of The Lord Which is our Strength. Thanks, Lord!

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)



VAIN ARE ALL TERRESTRIAL PLEASURES

Vain are all terrestrial pleasures,
Mixed with dross the purest gold:
Seek we, then, for heavenly treasures,
Treasures never waxing old.
Let our best affections center
On the things around the throne:
There no thief can ever enter;
Moth and rust are there unknown.

Earthly joys no longer please us;
Here would we renounce them all;
Seek our only rest in Jesus,
Him our Lord and Master call.
Faith, our languid spirits cheering,
Points to brighter worlds above;
Bids us look for His appearing;
Bids us triumph in His love.

May our light be always burning,
And our loins be girded round,
Waiting for our Lord’s returning,
Longing for the welcome sound.
Thus the Christian life adorning,
Never need we be afraid,
Should He come at night or morning
Early dawn, or evening shade.

CHRISTIAN STUDY RESOURCES

The Scriptures point to Me! (to Jesus)

(Octavius Winslow, "Morning Thoughts")

"But the Scriptures point to Me!" John 5:39

Search the Scriptures, my reader, with a
view of seeing and knowing more of your
Redeemer, compared with whom nothing
else is worth knowing or making known.

Love your Bible, because it testifies of Jesus;
because it unfolds a great Savior, an almighty
Redeemer; because it reveals the glory of a
sin pardoning God, in the person of Jesus Christ.

Aim to unravel Jesus in the types, to grasp
Him amid the shadows, to trace Him through
the predictions of the prophet, the records of
the evangelist, and the letters of the apostles.

All speak of, and all lead to, Jesus!

"The vexation of a fool is known at once,
but the prudent man ignores an insult."

DAILY POEM

"I must tell Jesus all of my trials; I cannot bear these burdens alone;
In my distress He kindly will help me; He ever loves and cares for His own.

I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

I must tell Jesus all of my troubles; He is a kind, compassionate friend;
If I but ask Him, He will deliver, Make of my troubles quickly an end.

Tempted and tried, I need a great Savior; One Who can help my burdens to bear;
I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus; He all my cares and sorrows will share.

O how the world to evil allures me! O how my heart is tempted to sin!
I must tell Jesus, and He will help me Over the world the victory to win."

-- Elisha Albright Hoffman, 1894
