“A son honors his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is my honor? and if I be a master, where is my fear? said the LORD of hosts to you, O priests, that despise my name. And you say, Wherein have we despised your name?” (Malachi 1:6 AKJV)

We need good old-fashioned respect and reverence for God in our day too.

Monday, August 28, 2017
“For the LORD, the God of Israel, said that he hates putting away: for one covers violence with his garment, said the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that you deal not treacherously.” (Malachi 2:16 AKJV)

Putting away refers to divorce. God wants healthy homes filled with commitment and love.

Tuesday, August 29, 2017
“You have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet you say, Wherein have we wearied him? When you say, Every one that does evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delights in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?” (Malachi 2:17 AKJV)

Unfortunately we live in such a day today. Lord, help us.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” (Revelation 21:4 AKJV)

Thank God for eternal life. What a day that will be.

Thursday, August 31, 2017
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8 AKJV)

All have sinned. Come to Jesus before it is too late.

Friday, September 1, 2017
“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” (Proverbs 31:10 AKJV)

Thank God for Godly women.

Saturday, September 2, 2017
“Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings.” (Malachi 3:8 AKJV)

The tithe, a tenth, belongs to God. Don’t rob God.

Sunday, September 3, 2017
“Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house, and prove me now herewith, said the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” (Malachi 3:10 AKJV)

You can’t out give the Lord.

Monday, September 4, 2017
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is thirsty come. And whoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17 AKJV)

God wants you to come to Him too. Repent of sin and be saved.

We were created to praise our Creator and our Lord.

Wednesday, September 6, 2017
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1 AKJV)

This says it all. We are in God’s world and we owe everything to Him.

Thursday, September 7, 2017
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:27 AKJV)

You did not evolve. You were made in the image of God. Your life has meaning because God created you.

Friday, September 8, 2017
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:16-17 AKJV)

Sin is disobeying God. Adam and Eve disobeyed and we are all still paying the consequences.

Saturday, September 9, 2017
“And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21 AKJV)

Jesus came to save us from our sins. Thank you Jesus.
 
Sunday, September 10, 2017
“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.” (Matthew 2:11 AKJV)

We would be wise to give our best to Jesus.

Monday, September 11, 2017
“For the LORD knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (Psalms 1:6 AKJV)

Don’t perish. Turn to the Lord and be saved.

Tuesday, September 12, 2017
“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, Yes, has God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Genesis 3:1 AKJV)

The devil is still trying to get people to doubt the Word of God. Don’t be fooled. The devil is a liar.

Wednesday, September 13, 2017
“And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10 AKJV)

We too should be afraid when we disobey God. He is holy. However, He is able to forgive and cleanse if we repent of sin.

Thursday, September 14, 2017
“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said to them, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” (Matthew 3:7 AKJV)

We should not forget that God will one day judge us. Flee the wrath of God and come to Jesus and be saved.

Friday, September 15, 2017
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4 AKJV)

Feed yourself spiritually. Read your Bible.

Saturday, September 16, 2017
“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17 AKJV)

Following Jesus means that we turn away from sin.

Sunday, September 17, 2017

You can sleep well when you are in God’s Hands.

Monday, September 18, 2017
“And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3 AKJV)

This was a promise that God made to Abraham, the father of the Jewish nation. We would do well to remember this promise. Don’t forget that Jesus was Jewish.

Tuesday, September 19, 2017
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6 AKJV)

What a wonderful promise! Let’s all act on this promise.

Wednesday, September 20, 2017
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16 AKJV)

Christians should be a light of goodness in a dark immoral world.

God will never condone evil.

Saturday, September 23, 2017
“For you, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor will you compass him as with a shield.” (Psalms 5:12 AKJV)

It is a blessing to be a child of God.

Sunday, September 24, 2017
“But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly.” (Matthew 6:6 AKJV)

Spend time alone with the Lord. It will pay great dividends.

Monday, September 25, 2017
“Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.” (Genesis 13:12-13 AKJV)

Bad company can bring bad results. Lot lost his wife and almost his life.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
“You have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not commit adultery: But I say to you, That whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28 AKJV)

Sinful deeds begin in the heart. Guard your heart.

Wednesday, September 27, 2017
“And if your right eye offend you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell.” (Matthew 5:29 AKJV)

Hell is for real. It is Jesus Himself that warns us of this terrible place.

Thursday, September 28, 2017
“But I say to you, That whoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery: and whoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery.” (Matthew 5:32 AKJV)

Marriage is to be honored. Divorce is to be avoided. This is God’s plan.

Friday, September 29, 2017
“Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10 AKJV)

This should be the prayer of every follower of Jesus.

Saturday, September 30, 2017
“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:13 AKJV)

The Lord can give us victory over sin. Let’s pray and believe His Word.

July 23 - August 26, 2017

Sunday, July 23, 2017
“For the Lamb which is in the middle of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them to living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” (Revelation 7:17 AKJV)

Heaven is a wonderful place that God has prepared for those who know Jesus.

“The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD has his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” (Nahum 1:3 AKJV)

God is not weak but He is patient. For that, we should be so grateful.

Wednesday, July 26, 2017
“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knows them that trust in him.” (Nahum 1:7 AKJV)

Lean on the Lord. He will take care of you.

Thursday, July 27, 2017
“Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.” (Zephaniah 1:18 AKJV)

Money will not save us from the wrath of the Lord. Only faith in Him and love for Him will save us. 

Friday, July 28, 2017
“Though the LORD be high, yet has he respect to the lowly: but the proud he knows afar off.” (Psalms 138:6 AKJV)

Humility touches the heart of God. Pride does not please Him.

Saturday, July 29, 2017

Money and might will not produce Godly results. Only God can do this.

Saturday, August 5, 2017
“Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” (Revelation 14:7 AKJV)

“Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, said the LORD of hosts:” (Zechariah 7:13 AKJV)

The world would do well to remember that the Jews are His chosen people. Jesus, the Savior, is the fulfillment of God’s promise to the Jews and to all who trust Him.

Friday, August 11, 2017
“And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which has power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” (Revelation 16:9 AKJV)

It is truly sad how people even in the midst of God’s Judgment can continue to resist the Lord. Don’t allow your heart to get hard like this.

Saturday, August 12, 2017

Friday, August 18, 2017
“And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he has on his clothing and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:15-16 AKJV)

Jesus will one day return to pass judgment on all who have sinned and did not repent.

Saturday, August 19, 2017

Saturday, August 26, 2017
