    Thumbs up I must be doing something right.

    I was playing NAB-IT with my daughters when I placed the word SINNED on the table.

    Neither of them, aged 8 and 10 both with extensive vocabularies, knew what the word meant.

    I was somewhat surprised at that.

    Is there any room for Jesus



    Some critics would say that the birth of jesus was poor planning. Why did the Father send Jesus down at such an inconvenient time? Why on tax day? He came knowing people would say, "I have no room for you." People are still saying "Jesus, I have no room for you in my life." Oh the excuses that are made. God comes at an inconvenient time to test our sincerity. He wants true disciples, not fair weather disciples.

    1. No room because of the taxing of the people.
    Jesus was born in Bethlehem on tax day. God was over looked by the world and the crowd
    because they were too busy with their money and things. Today people are still to busy, they think, for Jesus in their life.

    2. No room because of the crowds. The inn keeper said "no room" because he thought he had more important guests. Many today do not give room to Jesus because He is not important in their life.

    3. No room because of the small inn.
    Jesus should have been given the best room in the house, but a cow stall is all He was allowed. This is the type of the Son of God coming to indwell the hearts of humble believers.
    The heavens cannot contain the Lord yet He chose to live in our hearts. Praise His Name!

    4. No room because of the innkeepers decision to put Jesus in a lower place and remove Him from their presence. Mankind today must decide: Will I recieve or reject Jesus Christ? This Is the most important decision you will ever make in your life. Give Jesus room into your heart.

    Luke 2:2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

    Luke 2:3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

    Luke 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David

    Luke 2:5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

    Luke 2:6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

    Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

    Luke 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

    Luke 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

    Luke 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

    Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

    Luke 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

    Luke 2:1-7
    The fulness of time was now come, when God would send forth his Son, made of a woman, and made under the law. The circumstances of his birth were very mean. Christ was born at an inn; he came into the world to sojourn here for awhile, as at an inn, and to teach us to do likewise. We are become by sin like an outcast infant, helpless and forlorn; and such a one was Christ. He well knew how unwilling we are to be meanly lodged, clothed, or fed; how we desire to have our children decorated and indulged; how apt the poor are to envy the rich, and how prone the rich to disdain the poor. But when we by faith view the Son of God being made man and lying in a manger, our vanity, ambition, and envy are checked. We cannot, with this object rightly before us, seek great things for ourselves or our children.


    Luk 2:8-20
    Angels were heralds of the new-born Saviour, but they were only sent to some poor, humble, pious, industrious shepherds, who were in the business of their calling, keeping watch over their flock. We are not out of the way of Divine visits, when we are employed in an honest calling, and abide with God in it. Let God have the honour of this work; Glory to God in the highest. God's good-will to men, manifested in sending the Messiah, redounds to his praise. Other works of God are for his glory, but the redemption of the world is for his glory in the highest. God's goodwill in sending the Messiah, brought peace into this lower world. Peace is here put for all that good which flows to us from Christ's taking our nature upon him. This is a faithful saying, attested by an innumerable company of angels, and well worthy of all acceptation, That the good-will of God toward men, is glory to God in the highest, and peace on the earth. The shepherds lost no time, but came with haste to the place. They were satisfied, and made known abroad concerning this child, that he was the Saviour, even Christ the Lord. Mary carefully observed and thought upon all these things, which were so suited to enliven her holy affections. We should be more delivered from errors in judgment and practice, did we more fully ponder these things in our hearts. It is still proclaimed in our ears that to us is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord. These should be glad tidings to all.

    People of The Book


    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
    Hebrews 11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
    Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
    Hebrews 11:4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
    Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

    Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    There was a day when Christians were called both "people of faith" and "people of the book." Today's society and Laodicean Church make little reference to these titles but they still apply to a true Christian. "By faith Abraham was called out... and he went out...
    by faith he sojourned in the land of promise, by faith there sprang even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as stars of the sky." Thoughtful theologians consider that faith consists of: Knowledge, belief, trust, and recumbency ( i.e. rest and comfort).
    They coincidently echo God's analogythat "These all died in faith, not having recieved the promises, but having seen them a far off (knowledge), and were persuded by them (belief) and embraced them (trust) and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth (recumbency)" Hebrews 11:13. Faith " the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen," is thus inexplicably linked to the Word of God, embracing and trusting the word of God.
    True Christians will for ever be "people of faith" and "people of the Book". Is it any wonder that ecumenical modernists have their sights set on the Word of Godto remove 1 john 5:7

    1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

    Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

    Matthew 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

    Mark 7:16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

    Mark 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    Mar 9:46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    and thirteen other whole verses of the word of god?

    In this the 400th year anniversary of the King James Bible we need to renew our titles as "people of the Book" and people of faith."


    Faith always has been the mark of God's servants, from the beginning of the world. Where the principle is planted by the regenerating Spirit of God, it will cause the truth to be received, concerning justification by the sufferings and merits of Christ. And the same things that are the object of our hope, are the object of our faith. It is a firm persuasion and expectation, that God will perform all he has promised to us in Christ. This persuasion gives the soul to enjoy those things now; it gives them a subsistence or reality in the soul, by the first-fruits and foretastes of them. Faith proves to the mind, the reality of things that cannot be seen by the bodily eye. It is a full approval of all God has revealed, as holy, just, and good. This view of faith is explained by many examples of persons in former times, who obtained a good report, or an honourable character in the word of God. Faith was the principle of their holy obedience, remarkable services, and patient sufferings. The Bible gives the most true and exact account of the origin of all things, and we are to believe it, and not to wrest the Scripture account of the creation, because it does not suit with the differing fancies of men. All that we see of the works of creation, were brought into being by the command of God.

    Luk 4:1-13
    Christ's being led into the wilderness gave an advantage to the tempter; for there he was alone, none were with him by whose prayers and advice he might be helped in the hour of temptation. He who knew his own strength might give Satan advantage; but we may not, who know our own weakness. Being in all things made like unto his brethren, Jesus would, like the other children of God, live in dependence upon the Divine Providence and promise. The word of God is our sword, and faith in that word is our shield. God has many ways of providing for his people, and therefore is at all times to be depended upon in the way of duty. All Satan's promises are deceitful; and if he is permitted to have any influence in disposing of the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, he uses them as baits to insnare men to destruction. We should reject at once and with abhorrence, every opportunity of sinful gain or advancement, as a price offered for our souls; we should seek riches, honours, and happiness in the worship and service of God only. Christ will not worship Satan; nor, when he has the kingdoms of the world delivered to him by his Father, will he suffer any remains of the worship of the devil to continue in them. Satan also tempted Jesus to be his own murderer, by unfitting confidence in his Father's protection, such as he had no warrant for. Let not any abuse of Scripture by Satan or by men abate our esteem, or cause us to abandon its use; but let us study it still, seek to know it, and seek our defence from it in all kinds of assaults. Let this word dwell richly in us, for it is our life. Our victorious Redeemer conquered, not for himself only, but for us also. The devil ended all the temptation. Christ let him try all his force, and defeated him. Satan saw it was to no purpose to attack Christ, who had nothing in him for his fiery darts to fasten upon. And if we resist the devil, he will flee from us. Yet he departed but till the season when he was again to be let loose upon Jesus, not as a tempter, to draw him to sin, and so to strike at his head, at which he now aimed and was wholly defeated in; but as a persecutor, to bring Christ to suffer, and so to bruise his heel, which it was told him, he should have to do, and would do, though it would be the breaking of his own head, Gen_3:15. Though Satan depart for a season, we shall never be out of his reach till removed from this present evil world.




    Luke 4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
    Luke 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
    Luke 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.
    Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
    Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
    Luke 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
    Luke 4:7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
    Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
    Luke 4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
    Luke 4:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
    Luke 4:11 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    Luke 4:12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
    Luke 4:13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

    Saved or Lost


    1John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.



    In the display at Gatlinberg, Tennesse1John 5:9-12 it is noted that when the passengers made reservations for the maiden voyage they were placed in 5 0r 6 different catagories. Some were listed first class, others second class, still others third class then crew, etc. The ship built in Ireland by the White Star Lines was four days into the journey on April 14, 1912 with 2223 souls on board. The life boat capacity was only 1,178 . When the Titanic hit the iceberg and began to sink the awful reality of the crisis was realized. A total of 1,517 people perished in the shocking tragedy.

    On a desk back in the shipping office lay two pieces of paper. On one were the words " Jane Doe found saved" the other contained the words "John Doe found lost." As reports came in from the rescue crews, nameswere listed on the sheets according to their fate.

    Our society still puts people in catagories.
    Some are classified as rich, others poor, some famous, and others unkown. The Bible divides mankind into the latter classes. Everyone is either saved or lost. In 1John 5:12 we find the words "He that hath the Son hath life, but he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." Also John 3:18 adds, " He that believeth on him is not condemmed: but he that believeth not is condemmed already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." Jesus said, " Rejoice because your names are written in Heaven" ( Luke 10:20. The Bible also says, "Whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" (Revelation 20:15)
    -------------------------------------------------------------


    Nothing can be more absurd than the conduct of those who doubt as to the truth of Christianity, while in the common affairs of life they do not hesitate to proceed on human testimony, and would deem any one out of his senses who declined to do so. The real Christian has seen his guilt and misery, and his need of such a Saviour. He has seen the suitableness of such a Saviour to all his spiritual wants and circumstances. He has found and felt the power of the word and doctrine of Christ, humbling, healing, quickening, and comforting his soul. He has a new disposition, and new delights, and is not the man that he formerly was. Yet he finds still a conflict with himself, with sin, with the flesh, the world, and wicked powers. But he finds such strength from faith in Christ, that he can overcome the world, and travel on towards a better. Such assurance has the gospel believer: he has a witness in himself, which puts the matter out of doubt with him, except in hours of darkness or conflict; but he cannot be argued out of his belief in the leading truths of the gospel. Here is what makes the unbeliever's sin so awful; the sin of unbelief. He gives God the lie; because he believes not the record that God gave of his Son. It is in vain for a man to plead that he believes the testimony of God in other things, while he rejects it in this. He that refuses to trust and honour Christ as the Son of God, who disdains to submit to his teaching as Prophet, to rely on his atonement and intercession as High Priest, or to obey him as King, is dead in sin, under condemnation; nor will any outward morality, learning, forms, notions, or confidences avail him.

    Paul's "Whether" Advisory

    How is the whether in your life?


    2Co 2:1 But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.
    2Co 2:2 For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?
    2Co 2:3 And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.
    2Co 2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
    2Co 2:5 But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.
    2Co 2:6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.
    2Co 2:7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.
    2Co 2:8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him.
    2Co 2:9 For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.


    The church at Corinth was by no means a model church. It was surrounded by corruption and sin, and rather than changing their values and life styles they adapted to their environment.
    Paul identified their problems and offered solutions in teaching them to live for christ in a corrupt society. In Corintians 2 Paul writes
    to see how they are doing. He says, "that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things(verse 9) Paul is checking on their "whether" and giving them a "whether" advisory. They need a change in whether they were going to obey.

    We need to ask ourselves whether we be obedient in all things. The whether was bad at Corinth, but Paul was forcasting better "whether" ahead. If the "whether" is bad in your life, you need a change in "whether".

    Meteoroligists can forcast the weather but they can't change the weather, you can change your "whether" by determining whether your going to be obedient or not. Have you determined yet whether your going to serve God,honor God, love God and please God? You can determine, come what may, that you will live and do right.

    If you haven't been living as you should, you can change your "whether". Whether things are good or bad we can still trust God.
    We need to watch the"whether" in our lives.

    Do you ever wonder whether its worth the effort? Let me encourage you that it is! Regardless of the circumstances we can continue
    strong an faithful. Determine to do right no matter what. Are you making the right choices? How is the whether in your life?

    2Corintians 2:1-4
    The apostle desired to have a cheerful meeting with them; and he had written in confidence of their doing what was to their benefit and his comfort; and that therefore they would be glad to remove every cause of disquiet from him. We should always give pain unwillingly, even when duty requires that it must be given.

    2Co 2:5-11
    The apostle desires them to receive the person who had done wrong, again into their communion; for he was aware of his fault, and much afflicted under his punishment. Even sorrow for sin should not unfit for other duties, and drive to despair. Not only was there danger lest Satan should get advantage, by tempting the penitent to hard thoughts of God and religion, and so drive him to despair; but against the churches and the ministers of Christ, by bringing an evil report upon Christians as unforgiving; thus making divisions, and hindering the success of the ministry. In this, as in other things, wisdom is to be used, that the ministry may not be blamed for indulging sin on the one hand, or for too great severity towards sinners on the other hand. Satan has many plans to deceive, and knows how to make a bad use of our mistakes.

    Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

    Isaiah 9:1-7
    The Syrians and Assyrians first ravaged the countries here mentioned, and that region was first favoured by the preaching of Christ. Those that want the gospel, walk in darkness, and in the utmost danger. But when the gospel comes to any place, to any soul, light comes. Let us earnestly pray that it may shine into our hearts, and make us wise unto salvation. The gospel brings joy with it. Those who would have joy, must expect to go through hard work, as the husbandman, before he has the joy of harvest; and hard conflict, as the soldier, before he divides the spoil. The Jews were delivered from the yoke of many oppressors; this was a shadow of the believer's deliverance from the yoke of Satan. The cleansing the souls of believers from the power and pollution of sin, would be by the influence of the Holy Spirit, as purifying fire. These great things for the church, shall be done by the Messiah, Emmanuel. The Child is born; it was certain; and the church, before Christ came in the flesh, benefitted by his undertaking. It is a prophecy of him and of his kingdom, which those that waited for the Consolation of Israel read with pleasure. This Child was born for the benefit of us men, of us sinners, of all believers, from the beginning to the end of the world. Justly is he called Wonderful, for he is both God and man. His love is the wonder of angels and glorified saints. He is the Counsellor, for he knew the counsels of God from eternity; and he gives counsel to men, in which he consults our welfare. He is the Wonderful Counsellor; none teaches like him. He is God, the mighty One. Such is the work of the Mediator, that no less power than that of the mighty God could bring it to pass. He is God, one with the Father. As the Prince of Peace, he reconciles us to God; he is the Giver of peace in the heart and conscience; and when his kingdom is fully established, men shall learn war no more. The government shall be upon him; he shall bear the burden of it. Glorious things are spoken of Christ's government. There is no end to the increase of its peace, for the happiness of its subjects shall last for ever. The exact agreement of this prophecy with the doctrine of the New Testament, shows that Jewish prophets and Christian teachers had the same view of the person and salvation of the Messiah. To what earthly king or kingdom can these words apply? Give then, O Lord, to thy people to know thee by every endearing name, and in every glorious character. Give increase of grace in every heart of thy redeemed upon earth.

    Take a break brothers and sisters on this labor day weekend,
    enjoy.

    Blind Men

    John 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
    John 9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
    John 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

    John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
    John 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
    John 9:6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
    John 9:7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
    John 9:8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
    John 9:9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
    John 9:10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
    John 9:11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me,
    Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
    John 9:12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
    John 9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

    It is assumed that the blind man was blind because someone did something wrong.
    It is normal for people to assume that someone is being punished because of a bad turn in their lives.
    The truth is that our God loves us all. Another truth is that we are here that God will receive glory for our lives. We, like this man , were born blind.
    It is the task for us to meet the Saviour and learn to serve him.
    The question asked by the apostles was "Who did sin?", missing the fact that we are all born in sin, and thus born blind.
    Folks you do not have to sin; it is your nature. It is not our nature to walk with, talk with, or desire fellowship with God.
    For that to be the case, we have to be born again from above. The Holy Spirit must inhabit our heart.
    From this time forward, God may receive the glory and we must worship him.
    The object of Jesus on this day was to give the blind man his sight and to save his soul, and to instruct the apostles.
    In the end, the blind man saw his Saviour and had his soul redeemed. On that same day,
    the Apostles learned the lengths to which Jesus would go to give the Gospel to a lost man.

    Our mission is to give the Gospel of Christ to as many as will listen. What lengths will we go to give the Gospel today?
    Just as our hope is salvation, even so the hope of those around us is salvation as well.
    Determine today that that we will follow the plan and lesson of Jesus and invite someone to be saved.

    God made us all to be just like Him, so if we are dumb, then God is dumb, and maybe even a little ugly on the side.
