God's Word

Let’s encourage each other with God’s Word.

What’s your favorite verse? Why?
What verse is the most interesting to you?
If you have a life verse, what is it?

I love the liveliness of the King James translation. Like when Luke said, “the Jews took unto them certain lewd fellows of a baser sort.” However, some of my friends are King James ONLY, I enjoy asking them what the following verse in the King James Bible means:)

“At Parbar westward, four at the causeway, and two at Parbar.” (1 Chr. 26:18)



April and I will be on the road to TEXAS for a couple of days. Vacation:)

Please abide by our new rules.

We will continue the alcohol study when I receive the next article.

DO ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD,

TEST ALL THINGS.

2Ch_26:16-21

Evil and Suffering, Punishment — Success does not give unlimited power and authority.

A person who assumes such authority in the face of God's directions faces God's punishment.

Success and power cannot protect one from suffering God's punishment.

Humans may consider the suffering of a popular figure sad and evil.

God sees such suffering as deserved through failure to be faithful to Him.

Sin, Pride — Human power structures do not provide entrance to divine power structures.

Uzziah allowed his pride to grow as fast as his royal power.

He decided he had the right to take over the duties of God's appointed priests.

Thus, he did not respect God's holiness and the division of power set out in God's law.

In so doing he was unfaithful to his commitment to honor God. See note on 1Ch_10:13.

Because he would not separate himself from the powers of God's priests, God intervened to separate him from all humanity.

Trying to minister where God has neither called nor authorized you is sin.

History, Judgment — God's people find material success difficult to handle.

Uzziah let pride blind him to the true Source of his success. He refused to accept the limits of his office and suffered God's judgment. See note on 2Ch_21:12-19.

My life verse and calling is Titus 1:9, "Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers." God bless!!!

In Christ,

My favorite is:

Sermon on the mount

Mat 5:1-
None will find happiness in this world or the next, who do not seek it from Christ by the rule of his word. He taught them what was the evil they should abhor, and what the good they should seek and abound in.

volfan007,You said this is your favorite passage:

Rom 8:26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

Rom 8:27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

Rom 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Rom 8:29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

Rom 8:30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

Rom 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Rom 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

Rom 8:33 Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.

Rom 8:34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died--more than that, who was raised--who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

Rom 8:36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."

Rom 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Rom 8:38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,

Rom 8:39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Brad,

John 11:35 "Jesus wept" is not my favorite passage, but it has been on my heart lately. I wonder if our Lord weeps as He views our debates over the use of alcohol? I never thought I would live long enough to watch as Southern Baptist preachers and pastors debated the issue of the proper use of alcohol.

I am convienced that since alcohol is used in the West as a means of escape by so many, we as followers of Christ should not drink. If for no other reason that we might be a stumbling block to others.

Thanks for listening,

HEP
