God's Man | Bible in One Year pt 4...

Finally we have Malachi Chapter 4. 1 “Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the LORD Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them. 2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. 3 Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says the LORD Almighty.
 4 “Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel.  5 “See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. 6 He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.” ~~~ God is coming again and it will be a jo…

God's Man | Bible in One Year pt 3...

Continuing into Malachi 3...  1 “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty.  2 But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, 4 and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the LORD, as in days gone by, as in former years.  5 “So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says …

God's Man | Bible in One Year pt 2...

Continuing our walk through Malachi... Malachi 2  1 “And now, you priests, this warning is for you. 2 If you do not listen, and if you do not resolve to honor my name,” says the LORD Almighty, “I will send a curse on you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already cursed them, because you have not resolved to honor me.
 3 “Because of you I will rebuke your descendants; I will smear on your faces the dung from your festival sacrifices, and you will be carried off with it. 4 And you will know that I have sent you this warning so that my covenant with Levi may continue,” says the LORD Almighty. 5 “My covenant was with him, a covenant of life and peace, and I gave them to him; this called for reverence and he revered me and stood in awe of my name. 6 True instruction was in his mouth and nothing false was found on his lips. He walked with me in peace and uprightness, and turned many from sin.  7 “For the lips of a priest ought to preserve kno…

God's Man | Bible In One Year...

So since this is the last day of 2010 I will be sharing the last few chapters of the Old and New Testaments.  The last book of the Old testament is Malachi and we will look at chapters 1-4 along with what I took from them. Malachi 1  1 A prophecy: The word of the LORD to Israel through Malachi. Israel Doubts God’s Love  2 “I have loved you,” says the LORD. “But you ask, ‘How have you loved us?’    “Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the LORD. “Yet I have loved Jacob, 3 but Esau I have hated, and I have turned his hill country into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals.”  4 Edom may say, “Though we have been crushed, we will rebuild the ruins.”    But this is what the LORD Almighty says: “They may build, but I will demolish. They will be called the Wicked Land, a people always under the wrath of the LORD. 5 You will see it with your own eyes and say, ‘Great is the LORD—even beyond the borders of Israel!’ ~~~

Late Night Thoughts...

So I just did the last check of the night and the Princesses are conked out and my Queen is also softly sleeping. This made me think about how God has truly blessed me over this last 10 year cycle and how excited I am for this one.God is truly capable of amazing things. I have seen Him heal people both mentally and physically. I have seen marriages on the brink find reconciliation. I have seen children born to those previously thought to be infertile. I have even seen him bring peace through death. I haven't always understood it but I have recognized it for what it is, a loving God who desires to have a relationship with us.As we approach this New Year, I hope that you would take the time to examine what is truly important. He is waiting to recieve you.All you have to do is call on Him. Happy New Year if I do not post anymore before 2011.Posted via email from Pulling It All Together

God's Man | Who Defines You...

God's Man | 5 Minute Drills | Why I Love Learning...

Image
Here is the second of the 5 Minute Drills that Princess Mighty and I did last night.  The actual drill was Why I Love School but since I am not here is, Why I love to learn I think that learning is very important and value it above many other pursuits.  The reason for this is because God has called us to always be growing in our knowledge of His word and of the world around us.  While we should not live to emulate the world we should know how to operate within it.  I didn't always get this.  When I was in school I didn't work as hard as I should because I didn't see how important that an education was.  I let my peers define my production.  This made it very hard for me to get into college.  Through God's grace I was able to get into college and my mind was really opened to what learning really is.  Outside of my classes I was able to study poetry, art, religion, politics, philosophy.  I was also able to learn about business, computers and technology. I think that lear…

God's Man | 5 Minute Drill | Why I Love God...

Image
So my oldest daughter (Princess Mighty) and I did some five minute drills last night while I was cooking dinner.  I thought I would share one of them.  Sorry it is shorter than my normal drills but I was multitasking. Why I love God I love God because He saved me.  How did he save me?  He sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for my sins.  I would never have been able to bridge the gap between God and myself because of my sin.  God's forgiveness allows me to truly have joy and peace in my life. God has blessed me with
A loving family Wife and daughters
Amazing parents
An extended church family
The ability to provide financially
The respect of my peers
The love of my wife

God's Man | Most Important Week Of The Year...

Image
I spoke to the my family at Living Hope Church this past Sunday.  I shared with them that this week is the Most Important Week of the Year.  Let me share the passage, taken from Hebrews, that we talked about. We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.  In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word all over again.  You need milk, not solid food!  Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.  But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity... - Hebrews 5:11-6:1a Here Paul is admonishing the Church that they have begun to fall away and have cannot grow because they are still struggling with the elementary things.  We are not talk…
