"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

BEING A RESTORER, REPAIRER, A TRUE SERVANT and SHEPHERD OVER GOD’s SHEEP

~ By James Fire 

For the Facebook video version of this teaching, follow this link to: TRUE PASTORS are TRUE SERVANTS

ISAIAH 58:6-14 
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
Isaiah’s ministry was a time in Israel’s history when there was a great divide between the Jewish people – the very affluent who could afford ‘summer homes’ along with other residences, and the very poor who could barely afford an existence lived in squalor; their ‘middle class’ instead of composing of the majority of the population, was a minority. The rich and powerful were in charge and guilty of oppressing the unfortunate while at the same time, expressing religious devotion to GOD, what with the rituals in Judaism and fasting.

The LORD here is rebuking such behavior and expressing His desire for the fast of His choosing and true service to our fellow man…

Here in America, our churches are prosperous – we have multi-media by skilled and polished personnel, sophisticated sound systems, plush, air conditioned sanctuaries, myriads of ministries, competitive wage salaries for professional, seminary-trained pastors, high-powered power point presentations centered around feel-good messages – and for all of that, what God’s people are given are philosophies and theology of men, not the bread of life, God’s Word – not the living waters, but muddy water from broken cisterns!

GENESIS 28:1-5
And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughers of Laban thy mother's brother. And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham. And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother

The RETURN of the LANDLORD - by Lambert Dolphin

~~ by Lambert Dolphin

My favorite men's group, the Wednesday Brothers of Thunder, is a leaderless core group which meets weekly for an hour of Bible study and an hour of prayer. We stay leaderless because we expect the Lord Jesus Christ to come and take charge of things, and the fact that He does so has been our experience year after year. God always shows up and surprises us with His insights and the spiritual refreshment of our lives.
The responsibility for coordinating the weekly meeting rotates around the room. So it was recently that my friend Mike McKenna found himself opening to us the eleventh chapter of Luke. Mike, and two other brothers in the group, had grown up in the Roman Catholic Church so they knew the Lord's Prayer (the "Our Father") backwards and forwards. Mike admitted his discomfort in stopping to think through this prayer--he told us (in jest) that the text printed in red was "evidently optional and could be omitted because it made the whole chapter much easier to accept."

GENESIS 27 – PT. 1 – JACOB SCAMS ISAAC FOR THE BLESSING


by Sonny Islas

Subtitle: THE DANGERS OF CHILD FAVORITISM
Let’s continue to remember that we’re studying the story line and family history of Jesus our Savior. Jesus comes from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel).
This portion of the Saviors’ story highlights His ancestors’ sinfulness. Sins such as: child favoritism, deception, disobedience, hatred and a desire for revenge and murder. In this part of the story line, the whole family of four - Isaac, Rebekah, Esau and Jacob took God’s matters into their own hands and it left a messy trail.
Genesis 27:1-27

The TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – Chapter NINE


~ by James Fire

Introduction: I am in awe of the holiness of GOD, His grace and truth and peace – His almighty power, knowledge and wisdom, His absolute goodness and pure love – and I am also in awe with such equitable wonder (but in a negative sense) of mankind’s utter rebellion and even hatred of GOD, so that they adamantly refuse to repent.
I have heard people say, “I’d much rather die and suffer unimaginable horrors in the fire of hell for eternity than suffer in the presence of GOD for a minute!” I was astonished at that remark that literally left me speechless.

This is one reason why GOD sends down judgment – so that people’s hardened hearts will be broken of their obstinate pride and rebellion, and make no mistake, there will be multitudes beyond number that will come out of great tribulation (REV 7:14). We see in this chapter such self-willed and aggressive rebellion in the heart of people, who while suffering such terrible judgment at the Holy Hand of GOD, refuse to repent! Absolutely astounding!!

Thank the LORD that we who know Him have willingly bowed our knees, yielded our hearts and submitted our very lives to the One Who is worthy of these and far more: the LORD Jesus Christ. The day is coming when these rebellious souls will be in the very presence of GOD Almighty, unable to stand, for all of His glory, but compelled to their knees and declare that JESUS IS LORD, TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER!

PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father
