"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 . . . . .

INTRODUCTION: In the midst of the severe and devastating judgment of GOD upon rebellious Israel, the prophet Jeremiah wept; he was deeply grieved at seeing his homeland destroyed due to his people’s obstinate rebellion.

Yet in the midst of this judgment, the prophet was inspired by the Spirit to write the following:
22 Through the LORD'S mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness
His Word of Truth was declared, that though He knew Israel would be unfaithful, fall into apostasy, prefer other gods to YHWH, still He promised to regather His (wholly undeserving) people back into the land according to His grace. He Himself would come to restore and reign over His sheep; bless, keep, and protect them all (DEUT. 28:24-28; ISA 1:2-9; HOS 5:15; EZEK 36:22; ISA 11:11; ZECH 10:10).

We see the same with the life of David: It was in 2 SAMUEL 7 that GOD established His unconditional covenant with the King of Israel, and it wasn’t until four chapters later that he committed adultery with Bathsheba and made arrangements to have her husband killed! Yet GOD’s promise to David remained intact, even though there were dire consequences because of his sin against GOD and Him alone (PSA 51).

Here in Nehemiah, the LORD is demonstrating His lovingkindness, in bringing His people back, using His man to bring about not just the restoration of the Holy City, but the Holy (sanctified, set apart) people of GOD.

In this second half of Chapter Nine, Nehemiah continues where we left off in Part One of this study, extolling the LORD in the record of history where GOD proved Himself faithful at every turn!

Once we are caught up together to meet the LORD in the air, He will bring us, His children by spiritual rebirth to our Father’s House (JOHN 14:1). We will dwell forever in heaven with our Father, the LORD Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, with all the saints we read about in the history of the Bible, all the saints we’ve been blessed to know and miss so very much because they’ve gone ahead, and all of the heavenly host! How many of you are looking forward to this time??

Q: Have you ever heard a Christian say this, or perhaps you’ve even said this yourself? 
I don’t care about getting rewards in heaven, I’ll just be glad to BE THERE!” Well, we’ll look at what those rewards are for, on what basis those rewards are given, and then we’ll see why we should be passionate about obtaining them!

We learn about heaven from the very first verse of the Bible:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth

Scripture speaks of this heaven eventually passing away along with the Earth because they’re growing old:

PSALM 102:25-26
25 Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. 26 They will perish, but You will endure; yes, they will all grow old like a garment; like a cloak You will change them, and they will be changed.

And they, along with everything else will be replaced with completely new and different versions:

ISAIAH 65:17
"For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind
(See also ISA 51:16; 66:22; 2 PET 3:13; REV 21:1).

Scripture speaks of “the third heaven” (2 COR 12:2), which conveys the idea of a first and a second heaven. What are the distinctions? How are they similar? What function and purpose do these three domains serve?

We’ll examine all of this and more in this article!

The WISE & The WICKED – All Accountable to the Holy Judge!

The WISE & The WICKED – All Accountable to the Holy Judge!
Listen to this teaching on the SHINE BRIGHT Church YouTube Channel

PROVERBS 21:28-22:3

Let’s turn to the Holy Revelation of GOD’s Written Word:

A false witness shall perish, But the man who hears him will speak endlessly

The 10 Commandments are clear on this matter of a false witness. Law # 9 clearly states “you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor (EXOD 20:16).

We see the guilty who are condemned to the Second Death:
