Rest Time

I fell on wet ice  and broke  my right wrist.     Surgery will be done shortly.     Since posting is  very laborious  and rest is required,  I need  to take a break.     This will be  a good time  to just rest  in the LORD.

I will start posting again  when the doctor okays it.

May your study  of God’s word  straight  from the Bible  give you peace  and joy.

Love,
Margaret

The Anger Of Man Does Not Achieve the Righteousness Of God

January 20, 2015

Post_09_12_08_IMG_0108

The Anger  Of Man  Does Not Achieve  the Righteousness  Of God

Because we are now  the children  of God  through faith,  we need  to live  as a child  of God Almighty  should live.     James 1:18-20  explains this  about God  —  and us,  His dear children.     It says,

In the exercise  of His will  He brought us forth  by the word  of truth,  so that  we  would be  a kind  of first fruits  among His creatures.     This you know,  my beloved brethren.     But  everyone  must be quick  to hear,  slow  to speak  and slow  to anger;  for the anger  of man  does not achieve  the righteousness  of God.

We cannot become children  of God  by our own wills.     It is  by God’s will.     It is God  who presents  to us  His eternal  “word  of truth”.     Without His “word  of truth”,  we cannot draw near  to the true God  over all creation.     As we accept  God’s word  in our hearts,  we become  “a kind  of first fruits”  —  a product  of God’s work  down through the ages  —  and  in our hearts.

All because  our salvation  is a work  of God  —  from God’s promise  in the Garden  of Eden  –  through all God’s prophecies  about our Savior  –  through  the fulfillment  of all those prophecies  in Christ Jesus  –  to our encounter  with God’s word  —  we need  to honor God’s faithful love  to us  in the way  we live.     We honor  God’s faithful love  by living  as a child  of God  should live.     That would be  by faith,  hope,  and love.

When  we live  by faith,  we are consciously  and sincerely  trusting  in God’s love  and care  for us.     God has cared  for all  of His children  through thick and thin  down through the ages.     The Bible gives us  many accounts  of God’s faithful care.

That is why  we should not  let  our “anger”  rise up  every time  life  is contrary  to our desires  —  good as they may be.

When we read  the Bible’s accounts  of the lives  of God’s faithful children,  we need  to pay  special attention  to the fact  that they suffered  ever so many wrongs.     Many even died  for their faith.     In whatever way  they suffered,  they all  looked   to God  our Savior  to take care  of them  according to  His wisdom  and righteousness.     Their faith was  that even  in their suffering  God would be glorified  and they would be saved  for all eternity.

They weren’t looking  for earthly riches,  earthly peace,  or a home  on earth.     Rather,  they were honored  to know  the love  of God  and looked  for  God’s glory,  peace,  and heavenly home.     However God chose  to lead them  was okay  with them,  because the LORD  is God  —  and eternity  is  of far greater value  than our temporary lives  on earth.

We don’t need  to always  be angry  with the wrongs  that plague us,  because God  will lead us  through it  as He strengthens us  in the true faith,  hope,  and love.     That is why  James tells  the children  of God  to  “be  quick  to hear,  slow  to speak  and slow  to anger.

Our anger  does not help  or glorify God.     Rather,  it  is easily filled   with sin  of every sort  —  like a lack of faith  in God’s ways.

Knowing God’s almighty love  in Christ,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for Your faithfulness.”

Love,
Margaret

You Love All Words That Devour

January 19, 2015

You Love  All Words  That Devour

There are all kinds  of people  in this world.     As we observe the world news  —  politics  —  and even our local area  —  we see those  who love  to destroy others  with their words.     Maybe they feel a sense  of power  in using their words  to destroy others.     Although “words  that devour”  seem  to be rampant  these days,  they are not  a new thing.

King David experienced  the brutality  of  “words  that devour”.     He was running away  from King Saul,  who was trying  to kill him.     The whole story is told  in 1 Samuel 21:1 – 1 Samuel 22:23.     There we see  that one  of King Saul’s chief shepherds,  Doeg,  saw David  getting refreshments  from a priest  of the LORD  at the place of worship.     Then when King Saul  was trying  to get information  from his men  regarding the whereabouts  of David,  1 Samuel 22:9-10 records,

Then Doeg  the Edomite,  who was standing  by the servants  of Saul,  said,  “I saw  the son  of Jesse coming  to Nob,  to Ahimelech  the son of Ahitub.     He inquired  of the Lord  for him,  gave him provisions,  and gave him  the sword  of Goliath the Philistine.”

That bit of information  led Saul  to hate the priest,  Ahimelech,  for helping David.     Consequently, King Saul told his men  to kill Ahimelech  and all the priests  with him.     They wouldn’t do it,  so King Saul told Doeg  to kill them.     Doeg then killed Ahimelech  and eighty-five other priests.     Then he went on  to kill  “both men  and women,  children  and infants;  also oxen,  donkeys,  and sheep”  in the city  of Nob  where the priests lived.

Doeg the Edomite  loved his words  that had the power  to “devour”  those who were innocent.

David was in anguish  when he heard  the report  of the slaughter.     David wrote Psalm 52  to describe Doeg’s deceit  and evil nature.    Verses 1-4 read,

Why  do you boast  in evil,  O mighty man?
The lovingkindness  of God  endures all day long.
Your tongue  devises destruction,
Like a sharp razor,  O worker  of deceit.
You love evil  more than good,
Falsehood  more than speaking  what is right.   Selah.
You love all words  that devour,
O deceitful tongue.

This Psalm also describes  how God will surely judge  and destroy all  who  “love all words  that devour”.     We see many innocent people today  suffering  from the evil  “words  that devour”  that are spewed out  by the godless.     In our sadness,  we can be assured  that the LORD  will surely judge them  for all eternity.     Evil will never  have the final victory  because  “The lovingkindness  of God  endures all day long.”

Let us also watch  our own tongues,  faith,  and love.

In our trust  and thanks  for the LORD’s righteousness,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for Your eternal salvation  of all those  who look  to You  in faith.”

Love,
Margaret

It Is No More

January 18, 2015

.

Old Barn

It Is  No More

In Psalm 103:15-18,  King David says,

As for man,  his days  are like grass;
as a flower  of the field,  so he flourishes.
When the wind  has passed over it,  it is no more;
and its place  acknowledges it  no longer.

But  the lovingkindness  of the LORD  is from everlasting  to everlasting
on those  who fear Him,
and His righteousness  to children’s children,
to those  who keep  His covenant,
and who remember  His precepts  to do them.

How many times  have we heard folks say,  “The older I get,  the faster time goes”  —  “I just don’t know  where the time flew.”?

Our days  are so short.

Just think  of the billions  and billions  of people  who have lived  and died  since creation.     They are no longer known  by anyone.     We are all  just like any flower  that once lived  —  here today  and gone tomorrow.     As verse 16 says,  “its place  acknowledges it  no longer”  —  so,  no one acknowledges  all those  who have passed on  before us.

We live  in the present  and can’t spend  all our time dwelling  on the past.     We all have  only this one life  to live.     When we’re gone,  it won’t take  all that long  before no one knows  we even existed.     All our hopes,  dreams,  struggles,  building  —  all of it  will be gone  some day.

Our time  goes fast.

As King David thinks  about how his time  to die  is fast approaching,  he sees  a most wonderful truth  —  right  in the middle  of all his struggles.     In verse 17,  David proclaims,  “BUT…  the lovingkindness  of the LORD  is from everlasting  to everlasting  on those  who fear Him…”      What is David saying?     That is a beautiful way  of saying  God’s love  will forever be  with all those  who respect  the LORD  as the Creator  and Redeemer  of all.

God  will never leave those  who hold Him  in awe  and respect.     Through all their lives  on earth  and through all eternity,  God will be  near them  and love them.     “From everlasting  to everlasting”  means time  without beginning  and time  without end.     God’s love  is that faithful  and that great.

The other key words are  “on those  who fear Him”.     As much  as God loves  absolutely everyone  who has ever lived  —  God has  this special love  for all those  who respect Him  as their Lord  and Savior.

We need  to ask ourselves  if we are respecting  and fearing  the LORD  just because  He alone  is our beloved Creator  and Redeemer.

How can we know  if we are fearing the LORD  in the right way?

In verse 18,  David says  God’s love is  “To those  who keep  His covenant,  and who remember  His precepts  to do them.”

What is God’s covenant?     Jesus explains  God’s covenant  in John 3:36,

He  who believes  in the Son  has eternal life;  but he who does not obey  the Son  shall not see life,  but the wrath  of God abides  on him.”

God’s covenant  is simply  for us  to believe  so firmly  in the Savior,  Jesus Christ  —  whom God  had lovingly promised  [covenanted]  from the beginning  —  that we lovingly remember  how God  wants us  to live  —  all because  we have respect  for God’s faithful love  towards us,  even  in our sinful condition.

Because  our time  on earth  is so short,  we need  to live  in a way  we will not regret  for all eternity.     It is vital  to examine ourselves.     Are we living  by faith  in a way  that shows respect  for our Lord  and Savior?

When  our love  for our LORD  has blossomed  and come forth  in all its obedient beauty,  we will humbly say,  “Hallelujah!     God’s love  saves  even me.”

Love,
Margaret

Our Tutor, So That We May Be Justified By Faith

January 17, 2015

.

Post 2012 05 23 IMG 1230

Our Tutor,  So That  We May Be  Justified  By Faith

A tutor  is a close,  one-on-one teacher.     In biblical days,  a tutor  was a guardian  and guide  for boys  in well-to-do families.     Those boys  could not even leave their house  without their tutor,  until they reached the age  of manhood.     The tutor supervised  their whole life  and moral upbringing.     Today,  tutors give individual instruction  to help students  to discipline  and organize  their learning habits  —  so they can better master  the subjects  they need assistance in.

The bottom line is  that we all need  a tutor  to discipline  and organize  our spiritual learning habits.     As sinners,  we skirt around  the truths  of God,  picking and choosing  what we want  to believe  about God.     We want  to imagine ourselves  as easily getting  into heaven  —  not really needing  a real Savior  because we are pretty good  all by ourselves  —  and not owning up  to the utterly decrepit filthiness  of our sins  in God’s eyes.

We are failing  in learning the truths  of God  —  the reality  of our being.     We need a tutor.     We have one  —  if we care  to listen.     Galatians 3:24  tells us,

Therefore  the Law  has become  our tutor  to lead us  to Christ,  so that we may  be justified  by faith.

It’s so hard  for us  to learn  that we need  to be  “justified  by faith.     There is absolutely no other way  to be saved.     God says so.     Since this is  a learning challenge  for most everyone,  we need  a “tutor”.     Paul tells us,  “the Law  has become our tutor  to lead us  to Christ”.     How can the Law  be  “our tutor”?     The Law teaches us  when it shows us  that we absolutely must be  honestly  holy,  loving,  and totally perfect.

Who dares  to claim  that they are totally  and honestly holy,  loving,  and perfectly perfect?     Only a liar  condemned  to hell  might claim  that lie.    The Law convicts us.     Our tutor,  the Law,  shows us  our guilt.     God’s word  also shows us  that Christ suffered  and died  to pay for our sins.     We learn  that through faith  in Jesus,  “we may be justified  by faith”.

That is an awesome truth  to grasp.     When we learn  to put our faith  in Jesus,  another truth  becomes evident  in Galatians 3:25,

But now  that faith  has come,  we are no longer  under a tutor.

Our tutor,  the Law,  can no longer condemn us  when we put  our full faith  in Jesus,  our Savior.     We are free.     We no longer need  the Law  to tutor us  about our sinful nature.     By learning  through faith  in Christ,  “we are no longer  under a tutor”.     We’re free  —  not through any works  or efforts  of our own  —  but through God’s grace,  as 1 Corinthians 1:30-31 says,

But  by His doing  you are  in Christ Jesus,  who became  to us  wisdom  from God,  and righteousness  and sanctification,  and redemption,  so that,  just as it is written,  “LET HIM  WHO BOASTS,  BOAST  IN THE LORD.”

God has redeemed us  in Christ  —  now let Him further  teach us.     We don’t have anything  to brag about.     God’s grace  does everything  for us,  so we humbly say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for teaching us  to depend  on You  for our salvation.”

Love,
Margaret

If One Uses It Lawfully

January 16, 2015

.

Post 2012 01 09 Law

If One Uses It Lawfully

We look  at the Ten Commandments.     We know they are good  for everyone.     There are also many other  Old Testament laws  that are good,  in and of themselves,  when observed  in the manner  and times  they were intended  to be used.     Examples could include  circumcision  —  presenting newborn children  to the Lord  —  attending the prescribed festivals  —  proper sacrifices  —  inheritance rules,  etc.

Even though these laws  were good guides  for certain purposes,  God let the people know  from the get-go  that all  these laws  would not  give them salvation.     We are saved  —  made righteous  —  only through faith,  as we see it was  for Abraham  in Genesis 15:6.     So,  Paul teaches  in 1 Timothy 1:8-11,

But we know  that the Law  is good,  if one uses it lawfully,  realizing  the fact  that law  is not made  for a righteous person,  but for those  who are lawless  and rebellious,  for the ungodly  and sinners,  for the unholy  and profane,  for those  who kill their fathers  or mother,  for murderers  and immoral men  and homosexuals  and kidnappers  and liars  and perjurers,  and whatever else  is contrary  to sound teaching,  according  to the glorious gospel  of the blessed God,  with which  I have been entrusted.

We see  in God’s word  that the law  is good,  but it is totally unable  to save anyone.     No one  is able  to keep all  of the law perfectly,  so no matter who we are,  we are condemned eternally  because we have  all sinned  —  and sin every day.     The law condemns us  for not being perfect.     Paul said,  “the Law is good,  if one uses it lawfully.     The law is used  “lawfully”  when we simply  let it teach us   the difference  between good  and evil.

But the law is used  “unlawfully”  when we imagine  that we can keep it  good enough  to actually  be justified  in God’s eyes.     We cannot point  to our good deeds  and pretend  that they will make up  for our sins.

It is also  “unlawful”  to imagine  that if we try  really hard  to be good,  we will teach ourselves  to be good enough  (sanctified  —  made holy)  in God’s eyes.     No one  can grow spiritually  —  be sanctified  —  by attempting  to keep all  of the law.

The main purpose  of the law  is to teach  “those who are lawless  and rebellious”.     The law  of God  convicts  all the unbelievers  of their  “lawless  and rebellious”  ways.     If  and when  they come  to the point  of feeling condemned  for their evil,  they have a chance  to turn  to the Lord  for forgiveness  and be saved.     That is  the lawful use  of the law  —  to make us always turn  to God  for forgiveness  —  to learn  to have faith  in God’s salvation through Christ Jesus.

When we accept God’s forgiveness,  God’s grace leads our lives.     God’s love  changes our ways.     Therefore,  Galatians 5:18  assures us,

But  if you are led  by the Spirit,  you are not  under the Law.

When we let  God’s word  and ways  guide us,  we are not bound  to trying  to keep  the law.     God’s love guides us  into lovingly obeying.

We love,  because He first loved us.       1 John 4:19

Free  from the law,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for setting us free  in Christ Jesus.”

Love,
Margaret

The Wisdom Of Their Wise Men Shall Perish

January 15, 2015

.

post_09_5_6_img_0176

The Wisdom  Of Their Wise Men  Shall Perish

When people think greatly  on their imagined greatness,  they are  in the process  of turning away  from the LORD  and all the truths  and wisdom  regarding  our reality.     When the Israelites  became proud  of their traditions,  knowledge,  and discernment,  the LORD said  to them  in Isaiah 29:13-14,

Because this people  draw near  with their words
And honor Me  with their lip service,
But they remove  their hearts  far from Me,
And their reverence  for Me  consists  of tradition  learned by rote,
Therefore  behold,  I will once again  deal marvelously  with this people,  wondrously marvelous;
And the wisdom  of their wise men  shall perish,
And the discernment  of their discerning men  shall be concealed.

The Israelites surely  had more knowledge  and discernment  about the LORD  than their heathen neighbors.     And,  they had traditions  that were intended  to highly honor  the LORD.     But,  instead  of letting that bolster  a true faith,  hope,  and love,  they let themselves become  like robots.     Instead of honestly  and sincerely worshiping God  for who He is  in reality,  their “religion”  became mere “lip service”.     They were bored  with what they deemed  as the same ol’,  same ol’.

They were so accustomed  to the traditions  in worship  that  “their reverence” became merely  “tradition  learned  by rote”.     That is an easy trap  to fall into.     It takes  no thought,  no sincerity,  no heart  —  just a boring bit  of time  in our day  —  while one thinks  about what they will do  with the rest  of their day.

That is disgusting  in the eyes  of the Most Holy LORD,  who created us,  sustains us  through all our troubles,  faithfully loves us,  patiently deals  with our sins,  and sent His only begotten Son  to suffer  and die  to pay  for our sins.

Because the people  are  so loveless  and uncaring  in their pride  and independence,  God says,  The wisdom  of their wise men  shall perish,  and the discernment  of their discerning men  shall be concealed.”     In other words,  the truths  of God  will no longer  be their strength  and glory.     They knew the true God  —  but disregarded Him  as boring.     They had the  “discernment”  of all  of God’s righteous ways  —  but chose  to dismiss it  as they puffed up  their prideful ways.

Every generation needs  to take this  to heart.     God offers us  His word  and salvation  through faith  in Christ Jesus  every day.     It is not boring,   unless our pride blinds us.     God’s word gives us “discernment”  about all  that is truth,  good,  holy,  and right.     If we fall  into the politically correct philosophies  of this world,  we will  lose it all.     And then will come  our judgment day.

To flippantly  reject truth  and righteousness  is the worst thing  we can do  to ourselves.

As we honor God  for all  that He is,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  for Jesus’ sake,  draw us close  to Your heart  in truth  and a sincere love.”

Love,
Margaret
