Gem 1

Go simply to Jesus!

(Octavius Winslow, "Evening Thoughts")

What is your sorrow?

Has health failed you?

Has property forsaken you?

Have friends turned against you?

Are you tried in your circumstances?

Are you perplexed in your path?

Are providences thickening and darkening around you?

Are you anticipating seasons of approaching trial?

Are you walking in darkness, having no light?

Go simply to Jesus!

He is a tender, loving, faithful Friend, ever near.

He is a Brother born for your adversity.

His grace and sympathy are sufficient for you.

The great secret of a life of faith is . . .
to hang upon Jesus daily;
to go to Him in every trial;
to cast upon Him every burden;
to take the infirmity, the corruption, the cross,
as it rises, simply and immediately to Jesus.

You are to set Christ before you . . .
as your Example to imitate;
as your Fountain to wash in;
as your Foundation to build upon;
as your Fullness to draw from;
as your tender, loving, and confiding Brother and
Friend, to go to at all times and under all circumstances.

Gem 2

Spurgeon, "A Summary of Experience and a Body of Divinity"

If you love anything better than God you are idolaters.

If there is anything you would not give up for God it is your idol.

If there is anything that you seek with greater fervor-
that is your idol.

Conversion means a turning from every idol.

Gem 3

Full Surrender

Make a full surrender of every inclination of your heart.

Work to have but one purpose, and one aim.

And for this purpose give God complete control of your heart.

Cry out for more of the divine control of the Holy Spirit, so that
as your soul is preserved and protected by Him, that it may be
directed into one river, and one only, that your life may run deep
and pure, and clear and peaceful; its only banks being God's will,
its only river the love of Christ and a desire to please Him.

Gem 1

An idol is an idol

(J. C. Philpot, "Prevailing Pleas" 1865)

"Son of man, these leaders have set up idols
in their hearts!
They have embraced things
that lead them into sin." Ezekiel 14:3

An idol is an idol, whether worshiped inwardly
in heart, or adorned outwardly by the knee.

Therefore, give the people of Israel this message
from the Sovereign Lord: "Repent and turn away from
your idols, and stop all your loathsome practices. I,
the Lord, will punish all those, both Israelites and
foreigners, who reject Me and set up idols in their
, so that they fall into sin." Ezekiel 14:6-7

Gem 2

Isaiah 41:10

Spurgeon, "The Sweet Harp of Consolation" No. 760.

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you.
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you. I will help you.
I will uphold you with my victorious right hand."
Isaiah 41:10.

It is not possible for the Christian to be in any
condition in which these words shall not be to him,
universal medicine for all disease,
universal armor against every weapon,
universal supply of every necessity.

God is with us as a mighty worker-- a real
active, potent, faithful, truthful worker, who,
having promised to help us, will help us, and
never leave us nor forsake us until he has
accomplished all his eternal purpose, and
brought us to himself in heaven!

Gem 3

(by A.W. Pink)

It is greatly to be feared that there are
multitudes in Christendom who verily
imagine and sincerely believe that they
are among the saved, yet who are total
strangers to a work of divine grace in
their hearts.

It is one thing to have clear intellectual
conceptions of God's truth, it is quite
another matter to have a personal, real
heart acquaintance with it.

It is one thing to believe that sin is the
awful thing that the Bible says it is, but
it is quite another matter to have a holy
horror and hatred of it in the soul.

It is one thing to know that God requires
repentance, it is quite another matter to
experimentally mourn and groan over our

It is one thing to believe that Christ is the
only Savior for sinners, it is quite another
matter to really trust Him from the heart.
It is one thing to believe that Christ is the
'sum of all excellency', it is quite another
matter to LOVE HIM above all others.

It is one thing to believe that God is the
great and holy One, it is quite another
matter to truly reverence and fear Him.

It is one thing to believe that salvation
is of the Lord, it is quite another matter
to become an actual partaker of it through
His gracious workings.

Gem 1

The Spirit
(David Harsha, "The Savior's Ascension")

The Spirit is given to supply the Savior's absence,
and to apply to our souls the redemption finished
on Calvary. It is His blessed work to glorify Jesus;
to testify of Him.

Through His power we are renewed; sanctified;
filled 'with all joy and peace in believing,' and
'abound in hope' of a blissful immortality.

The Spirit reveals the Savior to our souls in a
manner that renders Him exceedingly precious
in our estimation. He shows us....
His excellence;
the perfections of His divine nature, as the
brightness of the Father's glory;
His power, as the Creator of all things;
His wisdom;
His immutability;
His eternity.

The Spirit exhibits to us....
the amazing love of Jesus to sinners;
the wonders of His incarnation;
the amiableness of His life on earth;
the spotless purity of His character;
the unparalleled sufferings of His life;
the fruits of His death, resurrection;
ascension, and intercession.

The Spirit shows us His suitableness to our needs
as sinners; points us to Calvary, and whispers in
our ears the cheering truth, that we have redemption
through the blood of Jesus, even the forgiveness of sins.

The Spirit comforts us amid all the tribulations of
earth, by assuring us that our trials are but light and
momentary, by perfecting His strength in our weakness,
by bringing to our remembrance the many precious
words of the Lord Jesus, by communicating to us
the things of God, by lifting our hearts above the
world, and by pointing us to a home of rest and
glory beyond the skies; where tribulation, and
anguish, and death, never come.

Yes, by His divine power thus operating on our minds,
He enables us to look far beyond the present; to direct
faith's far reaching eye to our Father's house, and the
fountains of immortal life, flowing through those 'sweet
fields beyond the swelling flood,' the sight of which
makes us long to be there, that we may see Jesus as
He is, and taste His goodness on the shores of the
promised land.

Gem 2

Is the Bible the Word of God?

(J. C. Ryle, "
Inspiration" 1877)

Is the Bible the Word of God? Then mind that
you do not neglect it. Read it! Begin to read it this
very day. What greater insult to God can a man
be guilty of than to refuse to read the letter God
sends him from heaven? Oh, be sure, if you will
not read your Bible, you are in fearful danger
of losing your soul!

Is the Bible the Word of God? Then be sure
you always read it with deep reverence. Say to
your soul, whenever you open the Bible, "O my
soul, you are going to read a message from God!"

Is the Bible the Word of God? Then be sure
you never read it without fervent prayer for the
help and teaching of the Holy Spirit. Humble
prayer will throw more light on your Bible than
any commentary that ever was written. You will
not understand it unless your heart is right. You
will find it a sealed book without the teaching of
the Holy Spirit. Its contents are often "hidden
from the wise and learned, and revealed to babes."

Is the Bible the Word of God? Then let us all
resolve from this day forward to prize the Bible
more. God has given us the Bible to be a light to
guide us to everlasting life. Let us not neglect this
precious gift. Let us read it diligently, and walk in
its light.

Gem 3

The highest honor?


To be pampered, flattered, and applauded by men,
is a poor, base thing, that is not worth having.

To be despised, to be spit upon, to be caricatured, and to
be jeered, is the highest honor that a Christian can have.

Gem 1

Hell's greatest enrichers!

(Brooks "Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices")

"The prophets who lead my people astray." Micah 3:5

Satan labors by false teachers, who are his emissaries
to deceive, delude, and forever undo the precious souls
of men! They seduce them, and carry them out of the
right way into by-paths and blind thickets of error and
wickedness--where they are lost forever!

As strumpets paint their faces, and deck and perfume
their beds, the better to allure and deceive simple souls;
so false teachers will put a great deal of paint and garnish
upon their most dangerous principles and blasphemies, that
they may the better deceive and delude poor ignorant souls.
They know sugared-poison goes down sweetly. They wrap
up their pernicious, soul-killing pills in gold! "Peace, peace!
they say, when there is no peace." Jeremiah 6:14

"Beware of false prophets, for they come to you in sheep's
clothing--but inwardly they are ravening wolves!" These
lick and suck the blood of souls! These kiss and kill! They
cry, 'Peace, peace!' until souls fall into everlasting flames!

False teachers handle holy things with wit and trifling, rather
than with fear and reverence. They are soul-murderers! They
are like evil surgeons, who skin over the wound--but never
heal it. False teachers are hell's greatest enrichers! Such
smooth teachers are sweet soul-poisoners! This age is full of
such teachers--such monsters!

They eye your goods more than your good; and mind
more the serving of themselves--than the saving of your
souls. So they may have your substance--they care not
though Satan has your souls! That they may the better
pick your purse--they will hold forth such principles as
are very indulgent to the flesh.

These are Satan's great benefactors, and such as divine
justice will hang up in hell as the greatest malefactors!

Gem 2

The white devil?

Luther used to say, "You need to fear a
white devil twice as much as a black one."

The white devil of self-righteousness is more
dangerous to the Christian than even the black
devil of open sin! -Spurgeon

Gem 3

The happy secret of retaining our mercies!

Winslow, "The Glory of the Redeemer in His Resurrection"

The happy secret of retaining our mercies
to receive and enjoy Christ in them; to turn every
blessing bestowed into an occasion of knowing, and
loving, and enjoying more of Jesus; apart from
whom, poor indeed were the most costly blessing.

Blessed indeed would our blessings then be!

Leading our affections up to God; giving us a deeper
insight into a Father's love; laying us lower in the
dust at His feet; filling the spirit with secret contrition
and tender brokenness, the heart with adoring love,
the mouth with grateful praise; endearing the channel
through which it descends, and the mercy seat at
which it was sought and given; encouraged and
stimulated by the gift, to devote person, time,
influence, and property, more simply and unreservedly,
to the glory of God; then should we keep a longer
possession of our sanctified blessing, nor fear the
thought, nor shrink from the prospect of its removal;
or, if removed, we should be quite satisfied to have
God alone as our portion and our all.

<>< <>< <><

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21.

Let’s suppose Jesus walked up to you and said:

“I want to see your books. Let me see your investments, your paychecks, and your checkbook. I want to see how you’re spending your money.”

If Jesus looked at all of that would He then say-
“Salvation has truly come to this house? I can tell where your heart is by how you manage your money?”

Or would He look you in the eye and say-
“I know your profess to be a Christian, but there’s nothing in the books indicating that you are. You know, you may profess to be a follower of mine, but in reality, you’re in bondage to your money, to your possessions.”

I can also imagine Jesus adding, “But I have good news. If you will trust Me for salvation, I will give you the Holy Spirit to empower you with an “inner want-to” to become a good manager of what I entrust to you. If you will trust Me fully, I will put you on the road to financial freedom, where you will no longer be living in financial slavery so evident in your books! Won’t you trust Me?”
my manna
That’s the question-
Jesus is asking you today.

Do you trust Him-
- especially when it comes to all the money and possessions He’s entrusted to you?
Or are you afraid to let it go?

Gem 1

His tender mercies

Thomas Brooks, "A Cabinet of Choice Jewels" 1669)

"His tender mercies." Psalm 145:9

"The multitude of His mercies." Psalm 106:45

It is God's free mercy which every day
keeps hell and my soul asunder.

It is God's free mercy which daily pardons my sins.

It is God's free mercy which supplies all my inward
and outward needs.

It is God's free mercy which preserves, and feeds,
and clothes my outward man.

It is God's free mercy which renews, strengthens,
and prospers my inward man.

It is God's free mercy which has kept me many
times from committing such and such sins.

It is God's free mercy which has kept me many a
time from falling before such and such temptations.

It is God's free mercy which has many a time
preserved me from being swallowed up by
such and such inward and outward afflictions.

"Great are Your tender mercies, O Lord." Psalm 119:156

"I will sing of the tender mercies of the Lord forever!"
Psalm 89:1

Gem 2

Praise God!

"All your works praise you, O God"

The stars still sing their Maker's praise; no sin has stopped
their voice, no discord has made a jarring note among the
harmonies of the spheres.

The earth itself still praises its Maker, the exhalations,
as they arise with morn, are still a pure offering,
acceptable to their Maker.

The lowing of the cattle, the singing of the birds, the leaping of
the fishes, and the delights of animal creation, are still acceptable
as votive offerings to the Most High.

The mountains still bring righteousness; on their hoary summits
God's holy feet might tread, for they are yet pure and spotless.

Still do the green valleys, laughing with their verdure
send up their shouts to the Most High.

The praise of God is sung by every wind it is howled forth in
dread majesty by the voice of the tempest, the winds resound it,
and the waves, with their thousand hands, clap, keeping chorus
in the great march of God.

The whole earth is still a great orchestra for God's praise,
and his creatures still take up various parts in the eternal song,
which, ever swelling and ever increasing, shall by-and-by mount
to its climax in the consummation of all things.

Gem 3

A cleaner way to hell

(Thomas Brooks, "A Cabinet of Choice Jewels" 1669)

It was the saying of a precious saint—that he was more
afraid of his duties than of his sins; for his duties often
made him proud—but his sins always made him humble.

It was good counsel Luther gave, "We must take heed
not only of our sins—but of our good works."

Duties can never have too much diligence used about
them—nor too little confidence placed in them. They are
good helps—but bad saviors. It is necessary we do them
—but it is dangerous to rely upon them. If the devil cannot
dissuade us from performing pious duties—then his next
work will be to persuade us to rely upon them, to make
saviors of them; because this will as certainly ruin our
souls, as if we had wholly neglected them.

Resting in your own righteousness, will as certainly and
eternally undo you—as the greatest and foulest atrocities!

Open wickedness slays her thousands—but a secret
resting upon duties, slays her ten thousands!

Open profaneness is the broad dirty way which leads
to hell; but trusting in pious duties is as sure a way,
though a cleaner way to hell. Ungodly people and
formal professors shall meet at last in the same hell.

Now, let all these things work you to renounce your own
righteousness—and to take sanctuary alone in the pure,
perfect, and most glorious righteousness of Jesus Christ,
and in the free grace of God.

"How am I to worship God?"

(by Horatius Bonar)

Man asks, "How am I to worship God?" and
he has answered it also in his own way. In the
gorgeous temple, in the pillared cathedral, with
incense, and vestments, and forms, and ceremonies,
and processions, and postures, he says.

But these performances are the 'will worship' of
self righteousness, not the obedient service of
men worshiping God in ways of His own choosing.

Man cannot teach man how to worship God. When
he tries it he utterly fails. He distorts worship; he
misrepresents God, and he indulges his own sensuous
or self righteous tastes. His "dim religious light" is
but a reflection of his own gloomy spirit, and an
ignorant misrepresentation of Him "who is light."

God's answer to man's question is given in the
Lord's words, "those who worship Him must worship
Him in spirit and in truth."

The vestments may or may not be lovely; that matters not.

The music may or may not be beautiful.

The knees may or may not be bent.

The hands may or may not be clasped.

The place of worship may or may not be
a cathedral, or a consecrated building.

These are immaterial things; mere
adjuncts of religion, not its essence.

The true worship is that of the inner man; and all
these other exterior things are of little importance.

As it is with love, so it is with worship.

The heart is everything!

God can do without the bended knee,
but not without the broken heart!

Present Day Evangelism
by A. W. Pink

The nature of Christ's salvation is woefully
misrepresented by the present-day "evangelist".

He announces a Savior from hell rather than a Savior from sin.

And that is why so many are fatally deceived, for there are
multitudes who wish to escape the Lake of fire, who have no
desire to be delivered from their carnality and worldliness!

The very first thing said of Christ in the New Testament is--
"You shall call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people
from their sins." (not from the wrath to come)

Christ is a Savior for those realizing something of the
exceeding sinfulness of sin, who feel the awful burden of
it on their conscience, who loathe themselves for it,
who long to be freed from its terrible dominion.
And He is a Savior for no others.

Were He to "save from hell" those still in love with sin,
He would be a minister of sin, condoning their wickedness
and siding with them against God.

What an unspeakably horrible and blasphemous thing
with which to charge the Holy One!

Serving with ulterior motives...

by F. B. Meyer

How many of us, who are engaged in the Lord's holy service,
are secretly cherishing some proud aspiration of excelling other
men, of making a name for ourselves, of securing money or

We will use the pulpit as a pedestal for the adulation of the
world, and the cross for a post on which to hang garlands to
our own glory.

How often do we preach sermons, or make addresses,
and attend meetings, with no other thought than to secure
the recognition and praise of those to whom we 'minister'.

All of this must be laid aside. We must have no selfish,
prideful ulterior motives to serve Christ.

What Repentance Is

A solemn sham and an impudent mockery!

(Charles Spurgeon)

"Rend your heart梐nd not your garments." Joel 2:13

Garment-rending and other external signs of religious emotion, are easily manifested, and are frequently hypocritical. True repentance is far more difficult, and consequently far less common. Unsaved men will attend to the most multiplied and minute religious ceremonies and regulations梖or such things are pleasing to their flesh. But true godliness is too humbling, too heart-searching, too spiritual for the tastes of carnal men! They prefer something more ostentatious, flimsy, and worldly. External religious rituals are temporarily comfortable; eye and ear are pleased; self-conceit is fed, and self-righteousness is puffed up. But they are ultimately delusive, for at the day of judgment, the soul needs something more substantial than religious ceremonies and rituals to lean upon.

Apart from vital godliness�all religion is utterly vain! When offered without a sincere heart, every form of religious worship is a solemn sham and an impudent mockery of the majesty of God!

Heart-rending is divinely wrought梐nd solemnly felt. It is a secret grief which is personally experienced, not in mere form梑ut as a deep, soul-moving work of the Holy Spirit upon the inmost heart of each believer. It is not a matter to be merely talked of梑ut keenly and sensitively felt in every living child of the living God. It is powerfully humiliating and sin-purging! But also, it is sweetly preparative for those gracious consolations which proud unhumbled souls are unable to receive! This heart-rending distinctly belongs to the elect of God梐nd to them alone.

The text commands us to rend our hearts梑ut they are naturally as hard as marble! How then, can this be done? We must take them to Calvary! A dying Savior's voice rent the rocks once梐nd it is just as powerful now. O blessed Spirit, let us effectually hear the death-cries of Jesus梐nd our heartsshall be rent!

First of all.. Greetings from all of us here. We are very happy.

I had an excellent flight from Manchester.. arriving in Abu dhabi at expected time.. had 3 hour wait there in very plush airport. Then as I checked in, I received special blessing from God. I was upgraded to business class, which meant personal service, a seat that went into a bed and so many other benefits. It was God's special gift to me and his blessing to me. Another blessing awaited me in Shanghai as my beloved met me and we were so happy to see each other.

We went to the raliway station on the bus and then back to Nanjing by train, we had a lovely call from Adam and mate if you read this and for all of you, our wedding will be on the 28th October at 4pm .

If any one of you wish to come then you are most welcome. Adam I would be happy if you act as my best man.

On Saturday, we had the privilege of attending Samuel's birthday celebration and I had the honour of sharing about my trip and also sharing how much Jesus means to both of us. Samuel invited us to come for Lunch on both days and we have bought wedding rings and booked the venue for the wedding. If you wish to send us a card then you can send it to the address below.. just print out the address and stick it on an envelope, with the names Keith Hobkirk/Guo heng

To stir your faith

Bow to the Word

by Don Fortner

I bow to the Word of God.

There are many good creeds, confessions, and catechisms
written by men, clearly setting forth the gospel of the grace
of God; but I do not pin my faith to the writings of any man,
or any group of men, no matter how much I may admire them.

The Word of God alone is my rule of faith and practice.

I bow my will and my reason, my experience and my feelings,
to the Word of God. I do not understand all that is written
in the Scriptures; but I believe it all.

I bow to the authority of Holy Scripture.
I do so unreservedly.

Let men call it bigotry, ignorance, or whatever they may,
I am not even open to the consideration of any thought,
idea, or evidence which contradicts the Book of God.

To bless your hearts


From Spurgeon's sermon, "CONSTRAINING LOVE"

"Oh love the Lord all his saints." -- Psalm 31:23.

If you want beauty, look into the face of Jesus--
that marred visage has more loveliness in it than in all the
smiles of Cleopatra or of the fabled maidens of days of yore.

There is no beauty anywhere but in Christ!
O sun, you are not fair, when once compared with him.
You stars, you are not bright, if you are set side-by-side
with his eyes, that burn like lamps of fire.
O fair world, and grand creation of a glorious God, you are but
a dim and dusky blot compared with the splendors of his face.

When you shall see Christ in glory, you will be compelled
to say that you never knew what loveliness was before.
When the clouds are swept away, when the curtains that hide
him from your view are drawn aside, you will find that not
anything you have seen will stand a moment's comparison with him.

You will be ready to break out, "O, black sun, black moon,
dark stars, as compared with my lovely Lord Jesus."

Oh, think of the matchless character of Christ Jesus!
Were there ever such perfections as meet in him?
He has not the excellency of one man,
but of all men, without the faults of any.

We must coin new words before we can describe the excellencies
of Christ! In fact, we must be done with tongues, and go into
that land where spirits utter their thoughts without the motion
of lip or the expiration of breath, before we shall be able to
express the surpassing beauty, the unuttered excellency of the
glorious character of Christ!

Love Jesus, for there never was such
beauty in the world as there is in him.

It is your privilege to love him with all the force
and vehemence of your ransomed renovated nature,
giving up all your spirit to be devoured by that
consecrated fire of love to the Lord Jesus Christ.

"Oh love the Lord all his saints." -- Psalm 31:23.

1 Peter 2 (Amplified Bible)

9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own [a]purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

It is the greatest privilege in the world to be saved by the precious Blood of Jesus and to call yourself a child of God and to be a member of the Family of God.. Amen?

Why though does God do it? Why does he call us out of darkness into His marvellous light?

We are truly a royal priesthood, a holy nation.. we are God's own precious people.

He does it so we will set forth His wonderful deeds... in our lives.

We tell of how God has changed us, how He saved us, how He has taken us from the Darkness and placed us in the light.

Also we are to display the virtues of God to a world that is in despair. We are to show the world.. God's Love, God's grace, God's goodness and God's mercy.. am I/you?

We are living and breathing examples of our Father. People can not see God, but they can see His reflection in you.

What are they seeing believer in your life?

Are they seeing the Love and Mercy of God in your life?

Some people may never read the Bible.. but they will read your life.. what is on your profile page?

Jesus has called you out of the darkness into the marvellous light of His kingdom.. it is time to live in that light and not to live in darkness and sin any more. It is time my friends to shine for Jesus like never before.. Amen!

Can they see Jesus? if so why not?

God bless you


1 Samuel 15

22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Saul was sent to totally destroy Agag and his armies. But he partially obeyed God and in God's eyes.. partial obedience is disobedience.

Saul was removed as king of Israel, because of this disobedience. For any Christian who thinks partial obedience is enough, be warned, the Lord sees it differently.

Look at what Saul says in verse 15, his excuse was that he spared the good things to sacrifice to the Lord. Putting this in context the Lord is saying, I don't want your sacrifices, I want your total obedience.. period!.

The Children of Israel had so many sacrifices for so many different things. Saul probably thought that God would be satisfied with a ritual sacrifice.. but HE wasn't, and likewise with us.. God hates our ritual. God looks on our hearts and if obedience to His word and His commands are not paramount in your heart and mind, then you are in sin believer.
Disobedience is rebellion, surely a soldier in the army who disobeyed orders would have to be disciplined for this.

Disobeying God is SIN.. plain and simple.

Church.. God wants your obedience

God bless you

Proverbs 17

14 The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.

Have you ever emptied water out of your bath or sink and then tried to stop it with your hands?

Impossible isn't it?.

Well the writer of Proverbs likens strife to having the plug taken out of a bath. .

So it is with strife inside a church and between believers .. once it starts it is almost impossible to stop.

James has some things to say about this in Chapter 3 of his great Epistle:

14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

Tough words my brothers and sisters.. but true. Where strife is inside a believing church, you will find every evil work.

Maybe it is time to put the plug of forgiveness in and stop letting the water out.

Please study the following verses :-

2 Timothy 2:23
Philippians 2:3
1 Timothy 6:4
Galatians 5:20
1 Corinthians 3:3
Romans 13:13

God Bless you

Welcome to Simply Scripture

It is a joy to share with you. Please share this study with all your friends.

Please take time to view the links at the bottom of this message, you will be greatly blessed
God bless you all




Proverbs is just a wonderful book, full of precious nuggets of wisdom, that are timeless. That is not because Solomon wrote them, but Solomon was shown them by God and he is sharing them with us. Let us stop and walk through this chapter and see how it applies to us in this modern day. It has a lot to say to us and I will be illustrating just a few verses here, but I encourage you to read and study it for yourself.

It has a lot to say about the tongue and also about our heart. So grab yourself a cup of coffee/tea and a cake and let's walk through this chapter.

Verses 1 and 18b

Many arguments are caused not by what we speak, but by how we say things and here Solomon states that a soft answer turns away wrath. Paul says in the New Testament in Philippians 4:5...let your gentleness be known to all men. Are we known by our gentle answers?. When faced with a tough situation, is our response to fan the flames or to put them out by our words?

Verses 2 and 7

We can have knowledge in abundance, but it is how we use it that matters.. amen. We can know all scripture.. be highly educated and have lots of learning, but we can be lacking in love. Then all the knowledge is useless. that is why in 2 Peter 1, we are told to:

5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Knowledge is great, but it must be built upon, other things will need to be built onto it. How are you using your knowledge?. Are you using it to build godliness?

We can have knowledge of many things, but the best knowledge is the knowledge of God.. amen Proverbs chapter 1
Verse 4

The tongue can be used to bring succour to people. It can be used to help people, to encourage them. Or it can be used as a battering ram to destroy people and their whole view of themselves. In Revelation 22:2, it says that in heaven, there is a tree of life for the healing of the nations. Is your/my tongue bringing healing or is it bringing pain and sickness upon it's hearers?

Verses 13 and 15b

We need to have Godly laughter in our lives. I truly believe that God has the best sense of humour in the world, well He did choose us.. didn't He?. I can imagine the times during the three years Jesus had with His disciples that there were times of great hilarity, and I expect Jesus joined in that fun and Godly hilarity. It must of course be balanced, we must never be laughing at someone, but with them.

If anyone thinks God doesn't have a good sense of humour, please take a long hard look in the mirror!!!!!!.
Verse 23

What a wonderful verse this is. Can I ask you this. Does what you say bring you joy? It not only brings Him joy, but will bring joy unto all those it is spoken to. Note that the words He speaks are spoken in season, they are the right words for the right time. The Man/Woman of God speaks the appropriate words at the correct time.

Verse 28

We must take time to answer people, we must be studied in our response to people. We must be careful to bridle our tongue. James chapter 3 says strong words on this subject, which I will leave you to read and study at your leisure
Verse 29

God answers the prayer of the righteous, what a wonderful promise for the believer. We can be heard by the Lord, but there is one pre-requisite and that is that we are righteous. Yes I know we have the righteousness of Christ, but are our hearts, lives and tongues, righteous before our Lord. Psalm 24 says that those who approach God, must have:

4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

As you study and seek God may you have all the above.

God bless you my friends

Noonday Devotion by Keith

Proverbs 16


32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

We look at the 9 fruits of the Spirit and seem to miss the last one.. self control.

It is not really self control.. it is really self letting go and letting the Holy Spirit take over.. it is SPIRIT CONTROL.

Our reaction to our circumstances will say everything about us. We either react in the flesh or in the Spirit.

In Ephesians 4 we read this

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

How can we not sin when we get angry? We have to let God take care of that situation. Purposefully we need to look through spiritual eyes and that is only done, by letting the Holy Spirit have control over our mouths, emotions and minds.

My beloved Pastor Mark (who is absolutely wonderful), put it like this, about being filled with the Spirit.

The Spirit dominates our emotions and dictates our behaviour

When we are living and walking under the control of the Holy Spirit, we are a living testimony to the power of God. People are watching constantly, they want to see whether you as a Christian match up to what you say on Sunday.

Your christian life is truly effective when you live a life under the control of the Holy Spirit 24/7 and not just on Sunday.

Why do you think God has saved you believer? This verse in 1 Peter 2 says why:

9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own [d]purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

Do you show forth the virtues of God believer?. His grace, His love, His goodness?

God bless you


Guest Teaching by Cheryl

Who Are You When No One Else is Around?

"Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." Philippians 2:12

"While I'm gone, I want you to be on your best behavior." Has someone ever said that to you? This is what Paul means when he gives us the directive to work out our salvation even when he is not around.

A pastor is successful when he trains his flock to love the Lord, share their faith, and minister to others when no one else is looking. It is the true test of a person's walk with God. What happens when you are alone on a business trip and there are free movies in your motel room? How fast do you drive when the speed limit says 35 and you are late for a meeting? How much money do you leave for a tip when there is no one to impress?


When was the last time you did something nice for someone who could never pay you back, from whom you had nothing to gain, and no one would ever know about it? Do you talk the talk or do you walk the walk?

A mighty fortress is our God,
a bulwark never failing;
our helper he amid the flood
of mortal ills prevailing.
For still our ancient foe
doth seek to work us woe;
his craft and power are great,
and armed with cruel hate,
on earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide,
our striving would be losing,
were not the right man on our side,
the man of God's own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is he;
Lord Sabaoth, his name,
from age to age the same,
and he must win the battle.

And though this world, with devils filled,
should threaten to undo us,
we will not fear, for God hath willed
his truth to triumph through us.
The Prince of Darkness grim,
we tremble not for him;
his rage we can endure,
for lo, his doom is sure;
one little word shall fell him.

That word above all earthly powers,
no thanks to them, abideth;
the Spirit and the gifts are ours,
thru him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go,
this mortal life also;
the body they may kill;
God's truth abideth still;
his kingdom is forever

Isaiah 49

15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

16 Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.

What an awesome promise this is.

Whatever you are feeling believer, God is thinking about you 24/7. He is your biggest and best fan. God never forgets you believer.

He has graven you on the palms of his hands. The amplified puts it like this...(tattooed a picture of)

Your name cannot be washed off, it will never be forgotten. God never forgets his children, maybe we forget HIM , but HE never ever forgets us. Indeed His eyes are continually on you and His ears are open to your voice. We all speak in different languages, but God is multi- lingual.

He has set forth a good plan for your life Jeremiah 29:11 and he has prepared a place in Heaven for you John 14:1-3. All because you have been bought with a price 1 Peter 1:18-21.

Do you think God would buy you back, redeem you with the precious blood of His son and then forget you.. NEVER.

God loves you more than you can imagine or we even deserve AMEN.

God bless you


Guest Teaching 1 by Newman Hall

Steep, craggy, and beset with foes!

(Newman Hall, "Follow Jesus")

There are many variations in the Christian's path. Sometimes it is smooth and flowery, with sunny slopes, and sylvan shades, and prospects which entrance the soul with loveliness. There are seasons when no doubts perplex the spirit, and when our circumstances in life are in harmony with duty, so that the right path is an easy path.

But this is the exception.

Often the road is steep, craggy, and beset with foes! Sometimes it is a "Hill Difficulty" throughout, and Apollyon stretches himself across the way aiming his fiery darts at the pilgrim. Then some bypathattracts us by its pleasantness, while Satan whispers that a thorny and painful road, cannot be thetrue one.

But Jesus never promised to lead us only in smooth places. It is not necessary that we should always rejoice--but it is necessary that we always follow. Wherever He goes, rough or smooth--there we also must go.

"My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish--ever! No one will snatch them out of My hand!" John 10:27-28

Guest Teaching 2 by Jim Pearson

Faith takes action

"What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Don’t you remember that our ancestor Abraham was shown to be right with God by his actions when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete."
James 2:14; 21-22, NLT

One Sunday at church, as the speaker shared the word of God, I realised that Christians may not be understanding faith as they should. Some people are taking faith to mean believing in God to do something for them, instead of believing God will help them do something.

Peter called out to Jesus to enable him, and then he stepped out of the boat and walked on the surface of the sea. The rest of the disciples cowered in the boat.

Abraham believed that God could raise Isaac from the dead, so he took his son up a mountain to sacrifice him. When Isaac questioned Abraham about where the sacrifice was, Abraham responded ‘the Lord will provide’.

The Israelites left Egypt and were escaping from the Egyptian army when they came to a barrier. They cried out to God, and God parted the Red Sea. They then picked up their property and ‘walked across’ the dry bottom of the sea, believing God was capable to hold back the sea until they crossed to their salvation.

Then there was the woman with the issue of blood, who said to herself ‘if I could just touch the hem of His garment I will be healed’. Then with that fixed in her mind she pressed through the difficulties set before her and managed to touch a bit of Jesus’ robe, and was healed. Jesus then told her that her faith had made her well, that is her belief in Jesus’ abilities and her actions to see that belief fulfilled in her life.

Each one mentioned above took action when placing their trust in God. This is faith. Jesus said, ‘Follow me’ when he called His disciples; not just believe in me, but leave your old life and follow my life. Is He not saying the same to us today?

When I was younger I was told I could never be a public speaker because of the physical speech difficulty I had as a child. So every time I stand up to speak I’m taking a step of faith. I’m trusting God will enable me to do what He has for me to do. When God first called my family and me to the mission field it meant leaving our home and going to another land. This is what activated the faith I now walk in.

God has a plan for your life! But you need to be active in that plan to see it fulfilled in your life! This new year stretches out before you, waiting for you to step out of your boat, walk up your mountain, walk through your sea on dry ground, and reach out more to Jesus! Will you activate your faith by taking action in response to the call of God on your life? Be tenacious and step out in faith today!

Prayer: Lord I need Your help to enable me to step out in faith, trusting in Your unwavering ability to sustain me. Help me, Lord, take action in this new year to see my faith grow! I want to do Your will, Lord! Would You take me by the hand today, right now, and lead me into Your will for my life, enabling me to do it? Thank You Lord! Amen.

Proverbs 10

23It is as sport to a [self-confident] fool to do wickedness, but to have skillful and godly wisdom is pleasure and relaxation to a man of understanding.

Have you noticed that I love Proverbs?

What Solomon and others say under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, totally turn the so called wisdom of the world upside down.. Amen.

To have the wisdom of God is to be at complete peace and rest..

Are you at complete rest and peace because you have the wisdom of God evident in your life?

Look at the comparison of this verse.

People who are confident in their own wisdom, make a joke of sin.

Matthew Henry says this

He makes a laughing matter of sin. When he is warned not to sin, from the consideration of the law of God and the revelation of his wrath against sin, he makes a jest of the admonition, and laughs at the shaking of the spear; when he has sinned, instead of sorrowing for it, he boasts of it, ridicules, reproofs and laughs away the convictions of his own conscience.

Believer, the wisdom of God brings relaxation and pleasure.

Are you experiencing it in your life?

God bless you


Guest Teaching by Richard Baxter

12 Time-wasting thieves!

(Richard Baxter)

"Redeeming the time." Colossians 4:5

"That you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way." Colossians 1:10

Thief 1. One of the greatest time-wasting sins, consists of idleness or sloth.

Thief 2. The next thief or time-waster, is excess of sleep.

Thief 3. Another time-waster, is an inordinate adorning of the body.

Thief 4. Another time-wasting thief, is unnecessary pomp and extravagance in household furniture and domestic entertainments.

Thief 5. Another time-wasting sin, is needless feastings, gluttony, and drinking.

Thief 6. Another time-waster, is idle talk.

Thief 7. Another thief which would steal your time, is vain and sinful company.

Thief 8. Another notorious time-wasting thief, is needless, inordinate sports and games--which are masked with the deceitful title of recreations.

Thief 9. Another time-wasting thief, is excess of worldly cares and business.

Thief 10. Another time-waster, is vain, ungoverned and sinful thoughts.

Thief 11. Another dangerous time-wasting sin, is the reading of worthless books, plays, romances, and novels. And also unprofitable studies, undertaken but for pride and vain-glory, or the pleasing of a carnal or curious mind.

Thief 12. But the master-thief that robs men of their time, is an unsanctified, ungodly heart; for this loses time, whatever men are doing--because they never intend to do anything for the glory of God.

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do--do it all for the glory of God!" 1 Corinthians 10:31

Noonday Devotion by Keith


Proverbs 14

9 Fools make a mock of sin and sin mocks the fools [who are its victims; a sin offering made by them only mocks them, bringing them disappointment and disfavor], but among the upright there is the favor of God.

Dear Friends

Sin is sin my friends, whether it is black or grey.. whether it is large or small.

We need never to tolerate sin in our lives, we must see it as an affront to God's pureness and holiness.. Amen.

In 1 John 1, we are told to call sin what it is. The world mocks the church and says, that you can't have absolutes, you must be tolerant.

6[So] if we say we are partakers together and enjoy fellowship with Him when we live and move and are walking about in darkness, we are [both] speaking falsely and do not live and practice the Truth [which the Gospel presents].

7But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].

8If we say we have no sin [refusing to admit that we are sinners], we delude and lead ourselves astray, and the Truth [which the Gospel presents] is not in us [does not dwell in our hearts].

This is not a popularity contest, indeed when the church becomes popular in the world, then there is something wrong, with the church.

Let me say this in regard to subjects such as Halloween and indeed homosexuality. It is time church to stand up and say what the word of God says about these subjects and to seek the favour of God and not man's favour.

It is time to be upright in heart and word and deed and to stand upright for God's truth as set out in the Bible.

Let us never stop speaking out God's truth.. remember that we are watchmen set upon the walls of the city Isaiah 62:6.

In Ezekiel 33 God sets out the standards of watchmen, we are to speak often and loudly, reminding this world of the standards of God's word and his requirements to repent and return to Him.

Words such as repent are to be our watchwords, we have to tell our communities, and countries that it is time to repent and return to the Lord and for them to stop making a mockery of sin.. Amen.

Years ago as a young Christian, I remember a few of us standing outside a cinema in Lancaster, giving out leaflets against the Film the Life of Brian. There are many more films and TV programmes mocking our Saviour.. it is time to stand up and speak out.

God bless you as you do these things.


Guest Teaching by Ron Walters


by Ron Walters

“During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears.” Hebrews 5.7
Physiologists love to dissect that verse, explaining that a human’s cries and tears are “a complex secretomotor
phenomenon characterized by the shedding of protein laden fluids from the lacriminal apparatus that both cleans and lubricates the eyes.”

Thanks. That’s really helpful…if you’re writing a medical journal!

But to those of us in the people business, sequestered behind a door labeled Pastor’s Office, tears are more than a lubricant.
They’re the visual sign of heartbroken people dealing with uncontrollable reality. And, more times than not, the tears are ours.

It’s amazing how much fluid can come from those two small tear glands—each about the size of an almond and
sitting behind the upper eyelids. But once those babies let go—watch out!

Whereas we may be bashful about our tears, scripture isn’t. Page after page offers vivid pictures of our heroes who’d
conquered their enemies, but not their tears. Biblical writers routinely used the words “pray” and “cry” interchangeably
because one usually led to the other. And the words are typically saddled with emotionally charged modifiers like distress,
joy, doubt, confidence, agony, triumph, and sorrow. At times, scripture even uses “cry” as a silent, unuttered emotion.

Truth be told, tears are a stock and trade in our work. We come from a long line of criers.

* The stress in David’s life brought so many tears that he asked God to fill a bottle with them as a memorial of his suffering.
On another occasion he confessed to causing his couch to dissolve because of his constant weeping.

* God twice declared Job to be “blameless and upright.” Yet that didn’t stop the tears when the poor guy lost everything.

* It was Hezekiah’s tears that moved the heart of God to add fifteen years to the king’s life. And as an added bonus,
God rid Jerusalem of the dreaded Assyrians.

* Jeremiah—the weeping prophet—used his tears as sermon material: “My soul will sob and my eyes will bitterly weep
if Judah does not repent of her sin.” And sure enough, they didn’t, and he did.

* Timothy, Paul’s young protege and heir apparent to his ministry, wept as he watched his mentor leave town, possibly
seeing him for the last time.

And let’s not forget the Apostle Paul—another of the Bible’s chief sobers. But it wasn’t the 39 lashes that brought the
tears, nor was it the many beatings, or when he was left for dead having been stoned, or the three shipwrecks he endured.
No, these were only, as Paul called them, “momentary, light afflictions.”

The thing that drove Paul to tears was people’s indifference to the things of God. He could never get over that.
And therefore it shouldn’t surprise us that the Bible details Paul’s tears more than anyone else’s—telling the why of each occasion.

Paul was driven to tears:

* Because false teachers were leading unsuspecting sheep to tumble hopelessly down a cliff.

* Because immature churches had aligned with the ways of the world instead of conforming to the plumb line of Scripture.

* And, because lost souls didn’t know the love of God and forgiveness in Christ.

Paul knew what was important and what wasn’t. His tears told it all. The ministry wasn’t about him. It was about
the Savior and those for whom Christ died. Anything less wasn’t tear-worthy.

At age 19, Charles Spurgeon was called to pastor the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. His powerful preaching developed
the world’s largest congregation. But Spurgeon’s real power may have come from the many times he barricaded himself in his
office weeping over his inadequacy for the task. Yet during his 36 years of preaching nearly 15,000 people came to know Christ.

Now that’s something to cry about.

Noonday Devotion by Keith


Genesis 39

9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

The Lord has put this particular verse on my heart.

Joseph had been blessed by God, and was now in charge of all the affairs of Potiphar, a high up official in the Court of Egypt.

But temptation, was to come his way, through the wife of Potiphar, who we can assume, was pretty bored with her marriage.

The Lord wants us to see the heart attitude of Joseph.

He saw sin, not as an affront against his master, nor as an affront against the wife, but an affront to God.

He truly had a clear idea of what sin, was and is.. it is an affront to a Holy God. He saw sin as great wickedness, sure he could have got away with it, but Joseph knew that even though no human person was watching.. God was.

We must have the same heart attitude to sin my friends. We must see it as an affront to God. We must have a proper perspective of God's holiness and pureness, only then, can we see sin as God sees it.. amen

Do you think believer that God misses anything?

Do you think that you can sin privately within your own home and think that no one sees you?


I speak to myself on this most of all, because this is an area of failure for me.

Can I say this to my fellow believers.

If you are involving yourself in sin, within your own home and are hoping to hide it, then you are very much mistaken. God doesn't miss what you are doing and HE is not happy and HE will expose it.

Whatever it is, it is time to repent to come to the foot of the cross and to live out a true Christian walk

Let us all, have the same attitude of Joseph to sin

God bless you


Guest Teaching 1 by Mary Padgett


Scripture: Genesis 39:9 "How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God."

Joseph had been sold into slavery by his brothers, and as he served Potiphar, he gained great favor. His master, Potiphar, noticed that the Lord was with Joseph and that the Lord caused everything that Joseph did to prosper so Potiphar put Joseph in charge of his entire house and everything that he had. Potiphar held nothing back from Joseph except his own wife. Joseph was a handsome young man and Potiphar's wife began to entice him to sleep with her, but Joseph blatantly refused. There was no discussion about the matter, for his heart was predetermined not to sin against God.

How often do we slip into a place of sin because we have not made a predetermined decision not to take that path? It is amazing, but when you draw a line of demarcation in your spirit concerning certain matters, the devil doesn't even tempt you in those areas. He knows that you have set certain boundaries and limits and that you are clearly separated from engaging in those activities. He knows that you have decided that you are not going to steal, kill, commit adultery, lie, cheat, or give into addictions so he doesn't place these temptations in front of you, but tries to find another area where you may be weak and vulnerable.

We always have canned drinks in the refrigerator, but seldom have bottled drinks. The other day my oldest son left a bottle of Coke in the refrigerator so that he could drink it later. I pointed it out to my younger son and told him that it belonged to his older brother and instructed him not to drink it. Upon hearing these instructions, he promptly declared, "Well don't blame me if I accidentally drink it." I was amused because I wondered how could he drink it accidentally when he was plainly told that it belonged to someone else and was asked not to drink it. By the way, he is no child. He is over thirty years old.

Yet, this is how it is when we allow ourselves to sin. Even though we are mature in the Lord, we think that because the temptation is there, it is not our fault if we give in. Adam and Eve may have felt like saying, "Well don't blame us if we accidentally eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." Yet the availability to sin does not dispel the responsibility that we have for our own actions. In times of temptation, we must remember Joseph and understand that the only way to win the battle of temptation is to make a predetermined decision in our heart not to sin. We must bring ourselves to our senses by asking the question that Joseph asked, "How can I do this great wickedness and sin against God?"

Guest Teaching 2 by Grace Gems

Robert Murray McCheyne quotes:

1. For every look at self--take ten looks at Christ!

2. The greatest need of my people--is my personal holiness. Take heed to yourself. Your own soul is your first and greatest care. Keep up close communion with God. Study likeness to Him in all things.

3. Unfathomable oceans of grace are in Christ for you. Dive and dive again--you will never come to the bottom of these depths!

4. Get your texts from God--your thoughts, your words, from God. In great measure, according to the purity and perfections of the instrument, will be success. It is not great talents God blesses--so much as great likeness to Jesus. A holy minister is a powerful weapon in the hand of God.

5. A man is what he is on his knees before God--and nothing more.

6. Live near to God--and all things will appear little to you in comparison with eternal realities.

7. Lord make me as holy as a pardoned sinner can be!

Romans 7

19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Ever wonder what is going on in your life sometimes? Me too.

You know my friends, the battle is daily and ongoing. We are fighting against things, that are far above our human power and therefore it is necessary to use spiritual weapons to defeat them.

As a young Christian, I sought to fight the devil in my own strength.. he just laughed at me and I was a defeated Christian.. now although I fail at times and struggle daily, I fight him, with God's weapons and not my own.. Amen.

Still I seek to do the right thing and end up doing the wrong thing. I try to say the right thing and end up, putting my foot in my mouth.

Why does this happen? Although we have a new nature and a new heart and Spirit, placed inside of us, when we are saved. Our minds remain the same. I expect that the Lord, did not want to make it too easy for us, that is why He said we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Romans 12:1-2.

The mind truly is the battleground in our lives, I know it is in mine. My mind controls my thought life and that is where most sin starts, because what we put into our minds comes out of our mouths more often that not.

What is going on in our lives is a battle, it says in Galatians 5:

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

So how do we win this battle. One of the ways is to take control, we see in 2 Corinthians 10, these verses.

4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

We have weapons that are spiritual, these include the Precious Word of God Hebrews 4:12, The Armour of God Ephesians 6:10-18, The Name of Jesus Philippians 2:9-11 and the Blood of Jesus Revelation 12:11.

The Spirit of God will have victory in your life, if you feed on the word of God and starve the old nature. But if you feed your mind with the things of the world, the Holy Spirit, will be frozen out. Which one are you feeding today believer ?


Guest teaching by Alex Smith

Can you love the Lord for No Other Reason?
Or is your love predicated that because He did, or will do such-and-such for us, that He is worthy of your love?
Why, O why does there have to be a Reason to love Him?
He is worthy of our love because of Who He Is, and for No Other Reason.
Not because He created the universe and everything in it.
Not because He saves us (although it is a very good reason).
Not because He has made great and mighty promises (although He has made them).
Not because He answers prayer (although He does answer prayer).
Not even because of His grace and mercy extended unto us, freely, richly, far beyond and in contrasts to our just desserts...
His name, the great "I Am" intrinsically means: the Self-Existent One.
The pure worship and adoration due to Him, we should give for No Other Reason.
He is Who He is, and that is enough.
Oh, we tag on this and that, to fill in the gaps in our appreciation.
But to give pure love to the One who is pure Love,
there are no qualifications of a great enough magnitude to match the Glory of the Matchless One.
One can love Him, nothing more. One must love Him, with nothing attached....for No Other Reason.
What if we stripped away all reasons to love Him from our church worship services? Does that thought alarm you? Does it fill you with a certain dread that, if we were to actually do that, there would be little to nothing there to sing about or "praise" about?
If we were to love Him, in church, for No Other Reason, what would our worship service look like? Most or all of our songs would be gone....even our prayers, for the most part, revolve around what we want Him to do for us, or what He has done for us... not just loving Him for Who He is.
Is it possible to get to that place where we love Him only for Who He is, and for No Other Reason? Or does our very existence as beings separate in individuality from Him demand that there be reasons?
I am calling you to this High Plane of Pure Love, pure adoration. I am calling myself there, as well. Set everything else aside.
Do not allow your attention, your focus, to drift from gazing upon Him to your wants, needs, desires, promises, ministries, or even to past things that have come from Him--- keep the gaze of the eyes of your heart fixed, yea,riveted upon Him alone, to where you are only involved in total and complete GIVING the love to Him that is the echo back, or the mirror-image response, of the Love that He is continually pouring out. "We love Him, because He first loved us." (I John 4:19) That's not bad! But, can we move higher than that, and just love Him, not because He first loved us, but for No Other Reason, than that He is worthy of it? True love is Giving. Agape means "self-sacrificial love". Some have tried to place a connotation of "unconditional" onto it. True love then, in sacrficing its own needs and desires, "seeks not its own" (I Corinthians 13: 5); and in true worship, that is, in the pure adoration of the Highest, we need to come to that place of Giving with no conditions attached.
This will be the "image and likeness" (Genesis 1:26) fulfilled in us, that He created us to be. For as He created us to love each other, so also He created us to love Him, as He loves: in total giving, in total sacrifice out of a free will, without coercion. Let us rise to that glorious standard.
Love from L. Alex Smith

Psalm 34

15 The eyes of the Lord are toward the [uncompromisingly] righteous and His ears are open to their cry.

16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

What a glorious promise these words are to the believer.. amen

God is aware of what is happening believer in your life. He misses nothing, he sees and hears everything that is done and said against his people.

I love that the psalmist uses the Phrase.. the uncompromisingly righteous.

We must never compromise our faith, whatever suffering and persecution we are going through.. why?

Because God sees it all and hears it all and is listening for your cry and He promises not only to hear your cry, but to deal with your enemies.

Has God heard your cry believer? If not isn't it about time he did?

God Bless you


Guest Teaching by Rifkah.. a born again Rabbi

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

WHAT THE LORD TOLERATES"I wiped out nations:Their corner towers are desolate; I turn their thoroughfares into ruins, with none passing by. Their towns lie waste without people, without inhabitants. And I thought that you would fear ME, receive instruction, and that the punishment I brought would not be lost on you and cut off your vision. Instead, all the more eagerly you have practiced corruption in all your deeds. But wait for MEsays the LORDfor the day when I arise as an ACCUSER; when I decide to gather nations, to bring kingdoms together, to pour out MY indignation on them, all MY blazing anger. Indeed, by the fire of MY passion all the earth shall be consumed." [Zephaniah (Tsefanyah) 3. 6 - 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im]

ALMIGHTY GOD revealed HIMSELF in the HOLY SCRIPTURES as the UNIQUE MEASURE and the EMBODIMENT OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH. HE holds the extraordinary position of being CREATOR and SUSTAINER of the heavens and the earth, and all that HE created. Our GOD is Omnipotent (all powerful),Omniscient (all knowledge) and Omnipresent (everywhere all at once) and HE is altogether righteous. There is no inconsistency, HE is perfect, holy and just.

When we insist on our doing what is right in our own eyes, apart from GOD'S holy standards; tolerate what HE does not tolerate, or fail to tolerate what HE does tolerate, we are sinning. Sin and iniquity are things the MASTER DESIGNER does not or will not tolerate. "Your iniquities have been a barrier between you and your GOD, your sins have made HIM turn HIS face away and refuse to hear you. For your hands are defiled with crime and blood and your fingers with iniquity. Your lips speak falsehood, your tongue utters treachery. No one sues justly, nor pleas for truth or pleads honestly. They rely on emptiness and speak falsehood, conceiving wrong and begetting evil." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 59. 2 - 4 Tanakh, Nevi'im]

Although the LORD OF HOSTS, the GREAT GOD OF ISRAEL does not tolerate sin, HE is more than tolerant of mankind; HE is compassionate and merciful. Prophets of old are replete with examples of GOD'Sintolerance as well as HIS tolerance. They carefully spell out the consequences of sin. . . captivity,dispersion,hardship,sufferinganddeath. They also tell the positive side of serving the LIVINGGOD...redemption,renewal,eternal lifeandheavenly rewards.

The ALMIGHTY ONE not only has the unique right to be intolerant of our sin, but HE provides the "UNIQUEMEANS" to make us righteous. "THE WAY" has been provided for us to be reconciled to HIM, "For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have assigned it to you for making expiation for your lives upon the altar; IT IS THE BLOOD, as life, that effects expiation." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 17. 11 Tanakh,Torah] YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is the ABSOLUTE TRUTH. The LORD JESUS said of HIMSELF, "I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No one comes to the FATHER except through ME." [John 14. 6]

Therefore beloved,we should consider what manner of persons we ought to be in holy conduct and godliness, "looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of GOD, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat." [2 Peter 3. 12]

"For GODdid not send HIS SONinto the world to condemn the world, but that the world through HIM might be saved. He who believes in HIM is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON OFGOD." [John 3. 17 - 18] Onlyby acknowledging and agreeing with GOD'S intolerance of our sin can we discover that HE is also incredibly merciful and loving in providing MESSIAH YESHUA, THE WAY, to have a relationship with us. In the PERSON of the LORD JESUS, we can see how far ALMIGHTY GOD was willing to go in order for us to be made right. Thank you LORD JESUS for YOUR cleansing blood.

(Pray) for the Shalom(Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!May your life be a witness and beneficiary of GOD MOST HIGH'S care, love and presence. HIS grace is greater then all our needs!
O GOD, do not keep silent; do not hold aloof; do not be quiet, O EL! For YOUR enemies rage, Your foes assert themselves, they plot craftily against YOUR people, take counsel against YOUR treasured ones. They say, “Let us wipe them out as a nation; Israel’s name will be mentioned no more.” Deal with them, O my GOD, make them like thistledown, like chaff driven by the wind, as a fire burns a forest, as flames scorch the hills, pursue them with YOUR tempest, terrify them with YOUR storm. Cover their faces with shame so that they seek YOURNAME, O YEHOWAH. May they be frustrated and terrified, disgraced and doomed forever. May they know that YOUR NAME, YOURS alone is YEHOWAH, the MOST HIGH over all the earth. [see Psalms/Tehillym 83]

Jeremiah 29

11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.

12 Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you.

13 Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

I just love these verses

Don't they give you real assurance, they sure do me.

God thinks about you all the time, you are always on his mind. I just love that fact. That the one who never slumbers or sleeps has us always on his mind.

And these thoughts are good, these thoughts are of giving us good things.. they are to give us peace and hope. The only one true God thinks about me/you every single second of every day, it says that his thoughts towards us are more than the grains of sand in the whole world. Have you ever picked up a handful of sand and tried to count the grains? ... there will be many billions and this is the number of thoughts, God has towards you. Psalm 139:17-18

When this fact becomes a reality in our lives, we do certain things:

We call on God and come to Him vs 12. Because we are confident he will take care of us.

We have boldness to pray knowing that GOD will hear and answer us. Hebrews 10:19-22

Not only that but we will want deeper and more fuller communion with God vs13.

God cares for us completely, we can completely and utterly trust him my friends 1 Peter 5:7. Let us go forward with the knowledge that God loves us totally.

These words are words of comfort from God to his people, I hope you find these words as comforting.

Although they were written over 2,5000 years ago, they haven't lost their power.. amen

If you are downcast this morning...focus on the words in the verses Jeremiah 29:11-13

God bless you

Guest Teaching 2 by John Macduff

I flee anew to the pavilion of Your love!

(John MacDuff, "Evening Incense" 1856)

Blessed Lord, bend Your pitying eye of love and mercy upon me today. Draw near to me, as I venture once more on praying and on pleading ground.

Alas! O God, how little have I improved the time that is past! I am a wonder to myself, that with all my deep ingratitude and utter vileness--I am yet permitted to approach Your footstool! I have sinned against light and love--warning and mercy--grace and privilege. The retrospect of life--is a retrospect ofguilt. I mourn over my manifold shortcomings--the alienation of my heart from You--the fitfulness of my spiritual frames--the ebbings and flowings in the tide of my love. When tried by the lofty and unerring standard of Your Word--how are my best actions and duties marred with defilement! How much self-seeking and self-glorying--and how little animated by the predominating motive of love to You, and singleness of eye to Your service!

Blessed Jesus! I flee anew to the pavilion of Your love! I have no other hope, no other refuge--but in Your finished work--Your matchless atonement--Your spotless righteousness! There is in You, an all-sufficiency for every need. Finite necessities cannot exhaust Infinite fullness. Let me hear Your voice saying, "Your sins, which are many--are all forgiven!"

Transform me more and more into Your own image. May I know more and more, the happiness of true holiness--that I am really blessed in seeking to walk so as to please You. May the power of gracewax stronger and stronger--and the power of sin wax weaker and weaker. May trials and crosses become light and easy to me--when borne in a spirit of meek, unrepining submission to Your Divine will. May this quiet every doubt and misgiving: "Your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things!"

Noonday Devotion by Keith


1 John 1:3-5

3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

Have you got a testimony?

John had.

Your testimony like John's, is what happened to you at the cross of Calvary. John was an eye witness to the Death and Resurrection of Jesus and so he shared because he was actually there.

Your testimony is sharing what happened personally to you at the cross. You are telling that your burden of sin was lifted, that you were delivered and made whole.

You have a unique testimony, like no one Else's. So tell out the glories of the Lord today.

However you came to know Jesus as Saviour, it was in a unique way and you have a unique testimony to share with others. It can and will be of relevance to other people.

Just like John.. what we have seen and heard, we have to declare, we have to share with others.

Have you got joy and peace in your heart through Jesus? Let people know you have.. your faith is a gift from God and it is meant to be shared.. like sweets/candy

The sermon today at the bottom, tells of one of the greatest testimonies in the bible, given by the Apostle Paul in Acts 26. I pray that I and you would have the same boldness and Paul had.

Paul stood before kings and he just shared the gospel.. it didn't matter to Him, who he was sharing with. We like Paul need to be no respecter of persons.. whether they are rich or poor.. they have on thing in common.. they are all sinners and all Need Christ.

It is our privilege and our responsibility to share the gospel.. AMEN?

So what's my/your excuse for not sharing the gospel?


Teaching 1 by Lorraine

Coffee Break

"What Are We Teaching?"

"Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord." Psalm 34:11

What are we "teaching" in Christendom? What are we teaching to our children concerning our faith? What are we teaching to those who sit in our churches, read our books or watch us on television? What are we teaching them about the "person" of God? About who Jesus is? About our relationship with Him? About our responsibility toward that relationship?

Are we teaching the whole truth, compromise or a watered down gospel? Are we teaching them that He is a "Santa Claus" who lives to fulfill our every desire? Are we teaching that it is about worshipping Him and not about the fulfillment of self-centered desires? Do we teach that we are here to do His bidding and will, not Him to do ours? Do we preach grace and mercy without accountability? Do we teach about the blessings only and neglect to talk about the consequences of disobedience? Are we teaching about holiness, purity or the fear of the Lord? Does our teaching revolve around material blessings or eternal life? Are we preaching a gospel of comfort and ease which allows people to neglect keeping their lamps full and wicks trimmed? Does what we teach provoke anyone to have the desire to be hot and on fire for the Lord instead of cold or lukewarm?

It looks like I have spent the whole time just asking questions this morning. But it is so important that we examine "what" we are teaching. The right teaching tends to life, the wrong tends to death. This is not a light thing. There is more to it than this temporary life here on earth. There is an eternity that awaits us all, and if the instructions on how to have life in eternity aren't clear then those receiving the "instructions" are going to become lost and not reach that destination. So, again, let us examine whether what we are teaching... eternity is at stake.

Have a great day. What are you teaching? Is it the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Teaching 2 by William Burns

The following letter was written by Pastor William Burns to the youth Sunday School class in Edinburgh, on March 10, 1840.)
Dear fellow-sinners, if you take refuge by faith in this sacrifice of Emmanuel, you are saved, and cannot come into condemnation. But if you despise and reject it, then sooner may heaven and earth pass away--than that you should escape being in hell to all eternity for your sins!
I rejoice to hear that some of you seem to have gotten a glimpse of the love of Jesus, and of the preciousness of His atoning blood. To such I would say--remain at Calvary, be there sleeping and waking, at work or at play, living and dying. Gaze upon that great sight--until your conscience enjoys perfect peace with God, until your heart is filled with Emmanuel's love, and your whole soul is transformed into His image, and becomes as a mirror, finely polished to reflect the rays of His grace and glory--to all eternity!
"Look unto Jesus!" is the whole of the gospel. Look and wonder, look and live, look and love, look and adore, look and admire, look and be blessed, look and be glorified, look eternally--and your hearts will be filled with everlasting love, and your mouth with an unending hallelujah!
But what can I say to those among you, who have heard of Jesus, and whose hearts are given to another--to the world, to themselves, to a lust, to a passion, to an idol, to sin, to Satan! Ah! to hell-fire you will go--if the Lord, in infinite mercy, does not interpose for you! Children, young people, who have not yet come to Jesus--realize that you are under the wrath of God--and that every moment it is coming nearer and nearer to your poor souls! Awake, arise, flee without a moment's delay to Jesus, and take refuge below His atoning cross--and enjoy now and to all eternity--His free, infinite, and unchangeable love to perishing sinners!
Shall I meet you in heaven--or see you going away in your impenitence and unbelief to hell?
Yours in Emmanuel,
William Burns
