Thought for September 24th. ‘AS THE LIGHTNING FLASHES AND LIGHTS UP THE SKY”

 Todays readings.. 1 Chronicles 7, Ezekiel 20, Luke 17                  

    We wonder why the Pharisees asked Jesus “when the kingdom of God would come?” [Luke 17 v.20]  The reply of Jesus implies they were interested to know what “signs” would indicate its approach. How did Jesus reply? “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed.” Shortly after he warned his disciples, “they will say to you, ‘Look, there’ or ‘Look here!’ do not go out and follow them.” [v.23].   We have seen some people gathering in expectation on a certain day which their leaders were predicting!

    It will be impossible to miss the fact that Christ has returned, for as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to another, so will the Son of Man be in his day,” [v.24].  Jesus then compares that day to the days of Noah.  Life was proceeding as normal, people were “eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark” [v.27].  

Noah is described by Peter as a preacher, “a herald of righteousness”(2 Pet. 2 v.5] but they ignored him, although they must have marvelled (scoffed?) at the massive ark he and his sons were building!  Maybe some helped – especially if there were wages to be had. Many make money printing and selling Bibles today!  Maybe some thought, if what he says proves to right, we will get on board when it rains with no sign of stopping.

    Notice what it says in Genesis about “the day” of the flood.  Life was proceeding as normal. Nothing happened the day Noah entered the ark and the door was shut!  “Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him went into the ark … and after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth.” [7 v.6,10]  We can compare this with the blunt comment of Jesus in Luke, “Remember Lot’s wife” [v.32]  It was too late when the floods were rising – the door to the Ark was shut.   

    Ponder the threefold comment Jesus makes about “One will be taken and the other left” [v.35].  Human instincts toward self-preservation will be of no avail on that day, only those with “the full assurance of faith” [Heb.10 v.22] will be ready when the angels come as lightning lights up the sky. This may be literal, or it could be symbolic of dramatic events beyond human imagining.   We watch present world events with increasing awe!  The political actions are becoming more unpredictable. In addition to this, weather extremes and seismic activity with earthquakes and the threat of volcanic eruptions are adding to the worries of the world.

Finally we ponder the warning recorded in Hebrews ch. 10 (from v.25) of the need to redouble our efforts to lead Christ-like lives “all the more as you see the Day drawing near. For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire …” It will be too late to change when “as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky.”

Thought for September 23rd. “YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND …”

Follow........

Todays readings.. 1 Chronicles 6, Ezekiel 19, Luke 16

Today we read the most challenging of the parables of Jesus – yet its’ primary meaning is unmistakable.  Jesus uttered it in relation to our purpose in life – how it comes down to one of two things.  Jesus sums it all up in today’s reading in Luke.  “No servant can serve two masters … he will be devoted to the one and despise the other”   He ends by bluntly saying, “You cannot serve God and money” [16 v.13].   What is it to “serve” money?

    This is not the most common Greek word for ‘serve’, in writing Acts Luke only uses the word in Ch. 20 v.19 when he quoted Paul’s words to the Ephesian elders (and Luke was with him at the time),  he told them, “You yourselves know how I lived …. serving the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials … I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable …”   This was serving indeed! 

      In writing to the Romans about issues over the law of Moses Paul says, “but now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so now we serve not under the old written code but in the new life of the Spirit.” [7 v.6]   But the commitment involved in this kind of serving is parallel; it is the same!  It is most interesting to  note that the one place where John used this Greek word in his gospel (8 v.33) it is translated as “enslaved”!

     Those Jesus sees as serving money he sees as being enslaved to it.  It is the ‘be all’ and ‘end all’ of their thinking.  Today, it is a matter of the things money can ‘buy,’ the pleasure and pride of owning the best of everything, of taking fabulous holidays, etc., with a token gesture toward others to ease their conscience, even fitting in a visit to church.

    Those who serve God, see how temporary and misleading is the expectation of rewards of serving money.   People who decide to serve God have a “bigger mind”, i.e. a bigger vision of thought. That famous chapter of Hebrews 11 selects the example of Moses when, surrounded by wealth as the adopted grandson of Pharaoh, ”he  chose to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin.  He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt” [v.25-26]  

   What do we consider to be of greater wealth today?  Less and less would make Christ their choice.  Some, foolishly, try to have it both ways. If we are “lukewarm” – as did those at Laodicea, let us remember the message of Jesus to them – read Revelation 3 v.15-16.

Thoughts for September 22nd. “The soul that sins will die”

Follow........
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

Todays readings.. 1 Chronicles 5, Ezekiel 18, Luke 15

Our chapter 18 in Ezekiel is one that is often quoted in discussions with those who believe that we possess some sort of inner being, a soul, that lives on in some sense after their body dies: but this idea is nowhere to be found in God’s word.  The word ‘nephesh’ in Hebrew, which here and in some places is translated as soul, first occurs in Genesis 1 v.20 – where it is translated as ‘creature.’  It does not mean some ‘spirit’ part of a person. In today’s chapter in Ezekiel we read that “The word of the LORD came to me ….  Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul who sins shall die.” [v. 1, 4]

It is made clear again to Ezekiel that the father or son who “has done what is just and right, and has been careful to observe all my statutes, he shall surely live.”[v.19]   It is onlythe soul who sins shall die.” [v.20].  In the next verse we read “But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die.

But this is not saying, eternally live!   But those who remain wicked – will die eternally!  We have said, many times, there is only the broad and wide way – and the narrow way!  Paul expresses this bluntly as we read at the beginning of the month in 1 Cor. 15. “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.” [v.22]  Nothing, “be made” – they do not naturally have a nature that is ‘eternally alive.’  Those before Christ came, who lived by genuine faith, as shown in Hebrews ch. 11, will “be made perfect” at the same time as those “in Christ.”

Finally, we bring to mind Paul’s declaration of faith as his mortal life was ending; “the time of my departure has come.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.” [2 Tim. 4 v.6-8].  May “that day” soon come – there are increasing signs it is near.

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

The book of Revelation contains the final words of Jesus, in the Bible, for his followers. As such, it is intended as a letter of encouragement, wisdom and warning from the captain of our salvation. In this series, we will take a different approach to Revelation encouraging the practice of meditating on the many insights for daily living contained in its pages. Far from being bogged down by complex symbols, interpretations and prophetic chronologies our intention will be to open up this book as a source of inspiration for disciples in the 21st century.

Developing a Godly Conscience – 2 Part Bible Study Boxset New Video Release

Follow........
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

Video Description:

Developing a Godly Conscience –Part 1

https://youtu.be/4YFWwthpmbQ
Description: In drawing near to God, we need to learn so that we might reflect God’s character in our lives. God defines his standard, what is merciful, true and good and directs our behaviour. The talk helps us in developing a conscience that is focused on God’s ways rather than being focused on self. The process involves a conflict between the spiritual mind and the fleshly mind.

Developing a Godly Conscience –Part 2

https://youtu.be/57MsFz0NdYE

Description: The writings of Paul explain how to deal when brethren have different consciences on particular issues in the ecclesia. The overall need of keeping the unity of the ecclesia within the ecclesia must be kept in mind. Our conscience ought not to impose our view upon others.

Thoughts for September 21st. “SALT IS GOOD”

Follow........
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

Todays readings.. 1 Chronicles 4, Ezekiel 17, Luke 13&14 

    There are many parables and challenging sayings in today’s 2 chapters in Luke’s gospel. Jesus’ utterance of just 3 words are very thought provoking: “Salt is good” [14 v34] 

      This immediately reminds us of what Jesus said in his ‘Sermon on the Mount’ after what we call the ‘Beatitudes’ Look at Matt. 5 v.13, – he said “You are the salt of the earth” to illustrate the role his genuine followers; were to have, to talk and live and act so as to become a good influence on those around them. How successful are we in doing that?

     In the passage in Luke, Jesus then adds, “but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored?  It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away.”   So if we are not having an influence in adding a beneficial flavour to the lives around us how can we expect to have a place in God’s kingdom and serve him there as the world as a whole at last learns righteousness, (see Isaiah 26 v.9)

      How many are there today that Jesus would see as “salt”?  In Luke 13 we saw the response when someone asked Jesus, “Lord, will those who are saved be few? [v.23]  This question caused him to tell a parable about “the narrow door” and how vital it is to “strive to enter” through it.  The Master bluntly says, “For many I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.”  He then adds many will “begin to stand outside and to knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,’ then he will answer them, ‘I do not know where you come from.” [v.25]  

      Jesus would be aware of the lesson of Noah in the ark, and how “the LORD shut him in” [Gen 7 v.16] Noah did not close the door!  We can imagine the scene as the rain poured down and the floods grew – what would be the mood among the scoffers then!

     His parable continues – those knocking at the door will say to him,  “We ate and drank in your presence and you taught in our streets” [v.26] and some/many of later generations may well say, ‘we owned a Bible and read it sometimes’  But he will say, “I do not know where you come from” – he cannot see any “salt” in them!

Thought for September 20th. “I WILL ESTABLISH FOR YOU AN EVERLASTING COVENANT”

Follow........
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

Todays readings… 1 Chronicles 3, Ezekiel 16, Luke 12

Our ch. 16 in Ezekiel today finishes with this wonderfully positive declaration.  After all the negative messages Ezekiel had been caused to send back to the remnant of his people in and around Jerusalem – in v,60 we read, “yet I will remember my covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish for you an everlasting covenant.”   And so we ponder the wonder of the return and re-establishment of Israel in their homeland that began nearly 100 years ago. 

Our chapter ends with the declaration, “I will establish my covenant with you, and you shall know that I am the LORD, that you may remember and be confounded, and never open your mouth again because of your shame, when I atone for you for all that you have done, declares the Lord GOD.” We cannot resist the feeling that their time to “remember and be confounded” will very soon happen!  Alongside this,  let us be mindful of the atoning work of Jesus for us – have we genuinely accepted it – and been baptised?

The nation of Israel was scattered from their land and Jerusalem destroyed nearly 2,000 years ago.  Jesus said, as we will read next week, “Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles, are fulfilled.” [Luke 21 v.24] The return of several million Jews to their homeland over the past 100 years – and becoming a recognised nation 70 years ago – is obviously a miracle. 

Paul, in writing his letter to the believers in Rome , where many of the Jews had begun to live (also think of how many Roman Centurions showed their belief in Jesus) was inspired to make this prophecy, “Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” [11 v.25]  It is very enlightening to read the rest of that chapter!  How long now before the world witnesses the fulfilment of God’s “everlasting covenant.”?  Those who really know, have faith in and obey God’s word will be there to see it.  How utterly wonderful.

Thought for September 19th. “BUT INSIDE YOU ARE FULL OF …”

Todays readings.. 1 Chronicles 2, Ezekiel 15, Luke 11. 

           Our Luke reading today features Jesus’ criticism of the religious leaders. They were obsessed with unimportant ritual.  They had elaborated on the straightforward commandments of Moses about washing hands and making sure cups and vessels were clean. What really motivated them to do this?

         The ritual they had created was more important to them than the reason for the commandment.  The lesson Jesus draws from this failure is one we must value.  He says, “You Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness” (11 v.39). 

The outward appearance, what other people saw, was most important to them. They did things which would be seen by others, creating the image that they were righteous, good living people.   The way politics is often played out today for the media, provides us with a 21st Century parallel.

Jesus went on to comment that they gave a tithe (a tenth of the value) of all the little things (v.42) but “neglect justice and the love of God.”    Let us beware; spirituality can so easily be just a façade.  Some churches are a bad odour today when the façade collapses.

   God’s anger built up against that generation; they had seen all the wonders of His Son’s miracles.  Our generation has learnt far more than any other about the intricate miracles of what God did at the creation of the world; things that had previously been beyond human sight. 

Yet, more and more people have locked their minds into believing there is no God!!    However, those who are fully convinced there is One God and that the Bible is his message must make sure that this conviction is on the inside! This is where God looks!  What Peter wrote is so meaningful; “let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” [1 Pet.3 v.4].  This surely applies to both men and women, make sure it applies to you
