"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 . . . . .

The TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – Chapter THIRTEEN: Part TWO of TWO


 ~ by James Fire

Introduction: It’s been said that “It’s all about grace” and while I understand the sentiment behind that statement, it is somewhat myopic, it doesn’t express the entirety of GOD’s revelation to mankind; and then again, there are those who are focused on the truth of GOD, sometimes even at the expense of the grace of GOD, but both grace and truth come by Jesus Christ (JOHN 1:17). Still, the Person of Christ is more than even these: His justice, His mercies, His role as Creator, LORD, Judge, Messiah King, and Kinsman Goel; His Righteousness, the imputation of that righteousness  and so much more.

Essentially, “It’s all about Jesus Christ!

Hence, the special blessing that’s promised to those who read this book in particular: The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST! There are those that dismiss the book of Revelation because it speaks so much about the devil; while it does document the events and acts of the devil in his last days before his judgment and final consignment to the eternal lake of fire, the central focus of this book is in fact the events and acts of the LORD of Glory in the last days of final judgment of mankind. He shall certainly judge those who challenge is rightful reign as KING of Kings, LORD of Lords as well as Creator and Judge, those who pledge allegiance to the dragon, and the anti-Christ.

WHAT IT TAKES TO RESTORE RELATIONSHIPS                                                         
Introduction: Joseph tested his brothers over and over again: Before we read Genesis 44, as we know, Joseph tested his brothers over and over again. The reason being was that Joseph really wanted to know if his heartless brothers had changed at all since, they sold him into slavery over a decade ago resulting in the unbearable pain of their father. Joseph strongly desired for their broken relationships to be restored – this is what he has been aiming for.

UNMASKING BLACK LIVES MATTER

By pastor Sonny Islas of SHINE BRIGHT Church (check out our Facebook page here). 

Today we are going to take a biblical look at a trending group known as Black Lives Matter. I assume that no one here is unaware of this growing movement. If you are, you need to get your head out of the sand. Some may see this as a social issue only, but as we will soon see this is very much a God issue – an anti-God issue. We will hold the Black Lives Matter movement to the light of God’s Word to discover its true intentions.

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter FORTY THREE


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

Chuck Missler Bible Commentary - Genesis 40-45

GENESIS 43 – by James Fire; for the Facebook video teaching, go here.

Introduction: When GOD prunes our lives, when He starts taking things away from us, sometimes our most precious things, it’s a deeply hurtful experience. But these are necessary hurts and GOD doesn’t allow any such pain to run its course any more deeply or longer than is absolutely necessary.
We may not understand why pain and suffering is necessary, or for what reason they come into our lives, but GOD understands all the necessary reasons.  

And He prunes with the objective in mind of bringing about an abundance of fruitfulness in our lives. Anyone who is a gardener understands that pruning brings about plenty, even if the pruning seems to take everything away until all appears to be barren and fruitless.

Jacob has suffered the loss of his dearest son, Joseph; the only other son that he had left from his beloved wife Rachael is Benjamin and here in this chapter he is faced with the decision of letting him go as well in order to secure the necessary food for the survival of his entire family.

IT IS TIME TO SEEK THE LORD – A CALL TO THE CHURCH IN THIS LATE HOUR


 
~ By James Fire

At the end of this article I’m inviting all the church across America to join with our tiny fellowship in Tucson, AZ – SHINE BRIGHT Church, for a special event that will continue from now on, on a monthly basis, the last weekend of every month!
We’ve seen some tumultuous days in recent times; time almost seemed to stay still, streets the world over were empty; there was a strong sense of uncertainty and unease – all because of a virus that was barely more potent than the common flu.

Yet even churches closed down at the request of governments. Many saw these things as harbingers of ‘the shape of things to come’ – but it seemed that we the church, rather than search our soul, and confess our ineptitude, sin and rebellion, to say nothing of our decided lack in fulfilling the great commission – rather than that, we muddled our way through with live video and social distancing, masked.

But what was all that COVID19 about and what is about to be unmasked? What’s about to be seen is going to make the rioting and looting by BLM and Antifa look like a Sunday picnic.

FAMINE FORCES A FAMILY REUNION 

The great famine that Pharaoh dreamed about is now here and it was going to force a long-desired family reunion – but Joseph won’t reveal his identity to his brothers until chapter 45. Joseph is now the 2nd most powerful and richest man in the world – 2nd to the King of Egypt – The Pharaoh. Joseph became so powerful that Genesis 45:8 say that “God made Joseph father of Pharaoh lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.”

RACISM, RIOTS, THE VIRUS AND THE CURE

RACISM . RIOTS . THE VIRUS . THE CURE - YouTube 

~ By Sonny Islas; for the Facebook video, go here.

America is crumbling right before our very eyes.

Without trying to sound sensational or overly alarming, what I think we see happening in America is bigger than racism, bigger than riots, bigger than the Corona virus, bigger than police brutality, and bigger than Republicans vs. Democrats - from a political and biblical standpoint, I’m convinced that this is a real make or break war between Nationalist and Globalist.

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter FORTY ONE


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

Chuck Missler Bible Commentary - Genesis 40-45
GENESIS 41 – by James Fire – To watch the Facebook video, go here.
Introduction: It’s estimated that Americans spend about $1 billion annually on astrological materials and practices (like books on prognostication and those 1-800 fortune teller phone numbers) as well as other New Age books in an attempt to discover their future. People are either curious or cautious or even care-worn about their future which they can even dread at times.

The LORD doesn’t forbid knowledge of the future – He simply forbids the practices of divination (forecasting the future) because this involves demonic spirits. This is why Christians should have nothing to do with tarot card readings, fortune tellers, ghost hunting, horoscopes, and the like, because anyone getting into these things are involving themselves with Satanic devices meant to lure and deceive and for these and other reasons, GOD has forbidden these practices in His Word (DEUT 18: LEV 17).
When GOD reveals the future, it’s always to bring people to the knowledge of the truth, and when He does reveal the truth, it revolves around the person of Jesus Christ with the objective of saving lives.

Anytime we read in Scripture where GOD declares what’s to come to pass, He desires deliverance for people, not damnation.

The one future event that we all face is what Shakespeare called “the undiscovered country” or in other words, death. That is a mysterious, forbidding, dreadful unknown – but neither future nor death holds any terror for the Christian who trusts the LORD, because He is LORD of all. We know nothing will happen to us apart from His Holy will and His Holy heart towards us, His children. We are witnesses to GOD’s faithful sovereignty over all of our lives!
