Return to the Word of God Part 2


I woke up this morning and it was raining outside. Listening to the rain sure is soothing. Makes one want to go back to bed! Let's be in prayer for this out break of swine flu as it sounds like it is spreading pretty fast at this point.

Now for todays devotion.

Today I want to move to my second point on how we now that Amwerica is not 84% Christian which was stated by a news organization during the Preisdential election.

2. Sexual sins are out of control.

It is unbelievable how America has openly accepted and glorified sexual sins. Homosexuals over time have moved right into the spotlight and nummed folks into thinking it is a alternate lifestyle. They have even moved into the church by convincing folks somehow that it is ok and the Word of God doesn't condem them. Well this morning I have news for them. The word of God does condem this lifestyle and calls it sin

Romans 1:24-27
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Can God make it any more clear. What do those who call themselves Christians do with this part ofthe Bible tear it out? I believe this is another clear example of how we don't know our Bibles or maybe we think we should be the ones to pick and chose what is right and wrong not God.

Now homosexuality is not the only sexual sins we are dealing with. Adultery and sex outside marriage are just as big of a problem. Americans have come to glamourize these sins. Check out our movies, our t.v. show, the songs on the radio. Some of the most popular t.v. shows like Desperate Housewives is all about adultery...this is a good indication of where we are in America with our values and our relationships with Christ. Why in the world do we watch and pay our hard earned money to go to a movie that promotes the very thing that God commanded us not to do in the ten commandments?

I have Christian friends that are still dating and will make comments like "you try a car out before you but it don't ya?". Referring to having sex before marriage. It is plainly obvious that God intended sex for marriage and it is a beautiful thing in it's right place.

So again 84% of America is Christian....well not exactly.

Let me say this before I close. We are to love homosexuals and anyone who is in sin but we are not to love the sin and accept it as ok. These folks need healing and the church needs to be the place for that healing. We are to hate the sin not the sinner. Christ loved sinners and we are to do the same!

Have a great Tuesday!

In Christian love...Tom

Return to Word of God Part 3

I first want to say I am sorry for missing yesterday. I had a great day in the woods turkey hunting and held revival services and never did have the net where I could use it. Well let's get to the Word of God.

A third example of where our so called Christian nation is proving that we are not following God is our abuse of drugs and alcohol. We have reached a time where the abuse of these items is basically helping destroy our country. What does God have to say about this?

Isaiah 28:7 (New King James Version)

7 But they also have erred through wine,
And through intoxicating drink are out of the way;
The priest and the prophet have erred through intoxicating drink,
They are swallowed up by wine,
They are out of the way through intoxicating drink;
They err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

29 Who has woe?
Who has sorrow?
Who has contentions?
Who has complaints?
Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eyes?
30 Those who linger long at the wine,
Those who go in search of mixed wine.
31 Do not look on the wine when it is red,
When it sparkles in the cup,
When it swirls around smoothly;
32 At the last it bites like a serpent,
And stings like a viper.
33 Your eyes will see strange things,
And your heart will utter perverse things.
34 Yes, you will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea,
Or like one who lies at the top of the mast, saying:
35 “ They have struck me, but I was not hurt;
They have beaten me, but I did not feel it.
When shall I awake, that I may seek another drink?|”

I am amazed at how on target God's word is even though it was penned thousands of years ago. Now the argument I always get about alcohol is this. God's word doesn't just come out and say do not drink or do not take drugs. But God's word is clear that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and we are to take care of these temples. If you start to get a buzz then you are destroying the temple and this is sin. How many folks do you know that drink one beer or glass of wine and quit??? Me too....none. There whole point of drinking is to obtain that buzz. This is wrong!

Drugs are destroying our country. The meth epidemic is out of control. The border war with Mexico is largely in part of America dependence on drugs...cocaine, pot, ect. The use of drugs for folks is there Jesus. That is where they obtain their so called peace....and guess what they will never find it there!

Jesus Christ should be where we get our high! He brings the peace that everyone is looking for. Give Him a try and find out for yourself!

Oh yeah 84% of our country claims to be Christian....what do you think?

Love ya brothers and sisters!

Tom

Return to the Word of God Part 4

Good Friday to all! I hope you all have a great day. It is raining here and everything is turning very green!!!

On to the devotion!

So far we have looked at 3 signs that out nation is not 84% christian as reported by a Cable news station during the Presidential election. I have one more sign I want to look at before we move on with some other thoughts. So here it is:

4. The church can't even get along!

Why do you think there are so many denominations? Basically it comes down to a difference of opinions about the Word of God or maybe it don't even have anything to do with God's word. So instead of working the problem out in love we split. What do you think God thinks about this? What are we gonna do when we get to heaven and we are all together? Let's look at God's word.

Romans 14:10-13

10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written:


“ As I live, says the LORD,
Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God.”

12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.

As always we find in God's word what we suppose to be doing. It says not to be a stumbling block. Now let me be clear there are some things in God's word we must not be moved on for example.....virgin birth, death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. Those are fundamentals and there are many others but there are many things in God's word that are open for interpretation as God reveals to each individual. Here is where the problem lies though....many do not read their Bibles for God to reveal it to them they just take it from hearing another person not learning from the Holy Spirit through Bible study!!

Oh brothers and sisters in Christ....how can we bring others to Jesus when we argue and split over silly things like what color the carpet is going to be? Of my years in the church most of the problems arise over something that is of very little importance to the Kingdom of God.

So church lets get our stumbling blocks out of the way for one day we will stand before and give account for ourselves!

Chew on this for a while and let me know what you think....God bless.....Tom

Very true Tom. Squabbles over this and that should not hinder the church and it's ability to grow in Christ. I guess it's sometimes hard to see the forest for the trees tho. ;\)

Return to the Word of God Part 5


Good Monday morning to everyone I hope you had a blessed weekend and took some time to worship the True and Living God!! On to today's devotion.

Last week we looked at some very obvious reasons why our nation is not 84% Christian as a news source reported during the Presidential election. So what is the problem with our nation? It is really quite simple. I found the answer in 2 Kings 22:8-13,20.

2 Kings 22:8-13 (New King James Version)

8 Then Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the scribe, “I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the LORD.” And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it. 9 So Shaphan the scribe went to the king, bringing the king word, saying, “Your servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of those who do the work, who oversee the house of the LORD.” 10 Then Shaphan the scribe showed the king, saying, “Hilkiah the priest has given me a book.” And Shaphan read it before the king.
11 Now it happened, when the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, that he tore his clothes. 12 Then the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam the son of Shaphan, Achbor, the son of Michaiah, Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah a servant of the king, saying, 13 “Go, inquire of the LORD for me, for the people and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that has been found; for great is the wrath of the LORD that is aroused against us, because our fathers have not obeyed the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us.

20 “Surely, therefore, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace; and your eyes shall not see all the calamity which I will bring on this place.”’” So they brought back word to the king.

As they brought the Word of God to Josiah the King, the king discovered the nation was not obeying the Word of God!!! Sound familiar? Look at the reaction of the King....He tore his clothes! He was in great distress at the nations rebellion to the word of God. Folks we should be in great agony ourselves at our outright rebellion to the word of God. God has blessed our nation for so long. I believe right now we are seeing a turning of God away from us. Why? Because we as a nation have turned away from His Word!!!

Look in verse 20...it tells us a great calamity was going to come upon Judah and up in verse 13 it tells of the wrath of the Lord that is aroused against them. Brothers and sisters this is where the good ole USA is headed if we don't get back to the Word of God! I really wonder if we as a nation have gone too far that we can't get back???

One last thing to look at for today....in verse 20 Josiah because of his faithfulness would be gathered to his grave in peace. Folks we have to do what God wants in our own lives first and then try to help others. Blessings will come if we do right in our own lives!

Our nation is dear to my heart as I am sure it is yours...this is a message we must get out....Return to the Word of God and obey before it is too late. We can have revival in this nation of ours but it must start with a return to our guide book for life...God's Word!

Have a blessed day and share this message with others....we got to get busy!!!

Love in the Lord....Tom
