Read the “0622 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. There was an old TV commercial, that had a man sitting on his bed. He was recounting what had happened to him. Another guy said, “Try it, you’ll like it. Try it, you’ll like it.”

The man on the bed said, “So I tried it… thought I was gonna die!”

Then they went into the product information. But in our verse, the Bible tells us to taste and see that the Lord is good: and you will be blessed. Blessed is the man that trusteth in Him!

Try Jesus, you’ll like Him, and all your sins will be forgiven.

Try Jesus, and you will live forever.

Try Jesus, and you will have a mansion in Heaven that He built especially for you.

Try Jesus, and He will never leave you, nor forsake you.

Try Jesus, and one day you’ll walk on streets of gold.

Try Jesus, and you will be blessed.

Try Jesus, you’ll like Him!

Peace!

Are Ye Not Much Better? – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Reading – Job 36 – 38 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers Read – 2 Timothy 1 – 4; Psalms 71 – 75; Proverbs 15)

Read the “0615 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. I’m in the process of resealing the roof of my RV. You see a lot when you’re up twelve feet in the air. I look past the awning, and I see my two dogs: Louie, and Rosie. They are both looking at Preacher and Justin’s backyard. Talking in a normal voice I call Louie’s name. They are still focused on the backyard. I call again, a little louder, and he looks up at me. He goes toward the gate to pick up his tennis ball. He looks up at me again and lets the ball drop to the ground as if to say, “Hey, get down here and throw the ball for me.”

But being on top of the RV, you can see a good portion of the backyard. God sees us the same way, but not just a portion. God sees everything. He controls the universe, but still makes time to answer our prayer. He answers yes, or no, or what I told Louie: not right now. When was the last time you counted your blessings? Can you remember God answering your prayer? When you think about how God has blessed you, you know He cares for you and is watching you, ready to show Himself strong in your sight. And you also know that God keeps His Word.

Peace.

Though He Slay Me – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Reading – Job 12 – 14 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers Read – Ephesians 4 – 6; Psalms 36 – 40; Proverbs 8)

Read the “0608 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. Job is being “comforted” by his friends. And Job told them so…

Job was a man who walked with God.

1) Job trusted God (v. 15).

2) Job knew bad things happen in life (v. 15). Jesus said…

3) Job made the decision to maintain his own ways before God (v. 15)

4) Job knew God was his Saviour (v. 16)

And if you don’t have Jesus, how will you ever get through what is happening in the United States?

Peace!

Are You Hearing God’s Word – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Reading – Nehemiah 8 – 10 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers Read – 1 Corinthians 13 – 16; Psalms 1 – 5; Proverbs 1)

Read the “0601 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. Many times, while out soul winning, I would encounter people who would tell me that they don’t need to go to church. The Bible clearly states that we should not forsake the assembling of ourselves together. It is important to be in God’s house. The Jews of the Old Testament knew this. In Nehemiah 8:1-2, the people gathered themselves together, and compelled Ezra, the priest to bring out the word of God and read it. In vs3 we find that he read it from morning to midday. Verse 3 also tells us that their ears were all attentive to God’s Word. Verses 5-6 tell us that the people stood as Ezra read, and worshiped the LORD. And verse 8 tells us that they read (those in verse 7) in the Book of the Law distinctively, and gave sense, and caused the people to understand the reading.

Do you want to understand what the Bible says, then you need to be in church: church that believes what the Bible says.

Peace.

The Protection Of God – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Reading – 2 Chronicles 32 – 33 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers Read – Romans 1 – 4; Psalm 119; Proverbs 25)

Read the “0525 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. God’s Word is powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. It gives us comfort in knowing that God is with us.

1) We can be strong and courageous.

2) We do not have to be afraid or dismayed.

3) We have God to help us.

4) We have God to fight for us.

5) We do not have an arm of flesh like our enemies; we have the LORD our God.

There are many examples of men in the Bible who refused to believe God.

In this chapter it was Sennacherib king of Assyria.

God protects His people. And with God’s protection comes…

Peace!

Prayer Changes Things – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Reading – 2 Chronicles 6 – 8 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers Read – Acts 7 – 9; Psalms 86 – 90; Proverbs 18)

Read the “0518 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. Have you ever listened to South West Radio Church? They would always open the program with these words…

Man prays, God acts. When you ask for something, there are only three possible answers you can get: yes, no, or not right now. We can see, by the first verse of chapter 7 that…

GOD Is Listening.

He heard the prayer of Solomon. He heard when Solomon finished praying. Then…

GOD Acted.

He sent fire down from heaven, and…

GOD Answered.

The fire came down and consumed the burnt offerings, and sacrifices. Then…

GOD Was Glorified.

The people worshiped and praised God. They said, “For He is good; For His mercy endureth forever.”

Don’t you just love it when God answers yes? Will you still love God when He answers no, or not right now? He may be keeping you from being hurt or maybe hurting someone else. Remember that God is good, and His mercy endureth forever. He wants only those things that are good for you. If he delays, or says no, it is only for our own good, and the good of others.

Peace.

How Is Your Shout? – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Reading – 1 Chronicles 13 – 15 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers Read – John 13 – 14; Psalms 51 – 55; Proverbs 11)

Read the “0511 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. What a testimony. God’s people were doing things God’s way, and were bringing the ark back to the city of David. With all the singing and shouting, and the blasts of the trumpets and crahing of the cymbals, it was probably heard for miles.

How is your shout? Every Christian has a testimony of what God has done for them. It could be deliverance from sin, from addiction, from personal struggles, from anything. Maybe God has blessed you some how. The Apostle Paul had many struggles and afflictions…

Paul had something to shout about. Have you lost you car keys? I lost mine and could not find them anywhere. I started to pray and ask the Lord where they were. Before I could finish, I knew they were in my coat pocket. Praise the LORD, I even made it to work on time. Maybe it was something small like finding lost keys. That’s something I won’t forget. Maybe you never had anything ‘big’ happen to you, like deliverance from a lawsuit for a quarter of a million dollars. Our God is shown great in the little things as well as the big things. Our testimony should be that He cares about you as much as He cares about me. Tell others that God is real. How is your shout?

Peace.

Why America Needs A Godly President – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Passage – 2 Kings 23 – 25 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

Second Milers also read – Luke 23 – 24; Psalms 16 – 20; Proverbs 4

Read the “0504 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Good morning. Why would God destroy a country? Judah was going to be destroyed, but why? We have to go back a chapter to see…

So king Josiah made a covenant with the Lord. (2Kings 23:3). In the next section of chapter 23, we see the things done by king Josiah…

He rid the temple of all the vessels that were made for Baal and burned them outside of Jerusalem.

He got rid of the idolatrous priests who burned incense to Baal, the sun, the moon, the planets, and to all the host of heaven.

He got rid of Asherah, a Canaanite godess.

He broke down the houses of the sodomites.

He defiled and broke down the high places,

And many other things did Josiah do to keep his covenant with the Lord.

Do you think America needs a Godly President? Are you tired of the madness that comes with homosexuality, devil worshiping, and every other sin under the sun. Then brother, you need help! And the only help you are going to get or need is from Jesus. At 10:30 today, we will be having a soul winning blitz. We get to hand out the Word of God, and tell others about Jesus: what he did for us and how the can know for sure they are going to Heaven.

Peace.

It’s A Gift – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Passage – 2 Kings 4 – 6 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers also read – Luke 9 – 10; Proverbs 27; Psalms 131 – 135

Read the “0427 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Congratulations! You have won a FREE trip to Bermuda! Wow, a free cruise? A gift for me? Well not exactly. First you need to drive to King-Of-Prussia, PA to pick up your tickets. Then you need to spend several hours with a high pressure salesman as he explains that the product produced by the company who is giving you the FREE trip is something you just can’t live without. The price for this product that you can’t live without (even though the world has done without it for 6000 years) is more than you can afford. But is is cheaper than your FREE (?) cruise to Bermuda. So you sign the contract, get your tickets, and your off to Bermuda… next week, after you drive to Florida, where the ship is leaving from. And to top everything off, your ship sails right through the Bermuda Triangle, you disappear forever, and you never get to see Bermuda, or enjoy whatever it is you signed the contract to buy.

Nothing is free, it always costs somebody something. Well we still live in a free country. Then how come I have to pay taxes? You have freedom of speech. Then why is it considered a hate crime when I quote God as saying homosexuality is an abomination? Even the freedom that we have was not free. Others died for those freedoms that are being tossed aside by the Liberal-Nazi-Commi-Socialist government we have in office. Nothing is free. Except…

In Matthew chapter 10, Jesus is about to send His disciples to the people of Israel.

Jesus told them they received the power to heal the sick, cleanse lepers, raise the dead, and cast out devils freely. They should use this power freely to help others.

In 2Kings 5, we have the story of Naaman the leper. God used Elisha the prophet to heal Naaman of his leprosy. Naaman tried to give gold, silver, and clothing to Elisha to say thank you. Elisha would not accept these. Freely he received, so freely he gave. So Naaman started on his journey back to Syria. But Gehazi, Elisha’s servant, did not understand. Gehazi ran after Naaman, and lied to get two talents of silver, and two changes of garments. After Gehazi received the items and returned home…

God’s gift of salvation is the only thing that is truly free to us, yet millions refuse to believe this.

Salvation is a free gift: you cannot work for it, you cannot buy it.

Salvation: God gave it; Jesus paid for it, and now offers it freely to you.

Peace!

When Leaders Go Bad – The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Passage – 1 Kings 10 – 11 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

Good morning. About 5 years ago, I read about the governor of New York stating that the people belong to the state, and the state can inject (vaccinate) them with anything the state wants. Welcome to godless socialism. Because Solomon stopped following God and chased after false gods, things happened…

Solomon lost Israel for his son. Only Judah would follow Rehaboan. Then the LORD raised up men to fight against Solomon.

All this happened in just 40 years. If I live on the earth 40 more years, I will be 110. People do live into their hundreds. What will I see in those years. Will the United States of America still be united, or will it be broken up? New York is our next door neighbor. Will the evil overflow into New Jersey. The killing of babies, the loss of freedom with the loss of being able to say no. History tells us that Hitler killed 6 million Jews. Lenin killed 100,000 during the Red Terror between September and October 1918. The regime of Moa Zedong may have killed 30 to 70 million through starvation, prison labour, and mass executions. What is going to happen to the Christians and those who oppose the liberal democratic forces. Choose now, before it’s too late. My body, my choice?

Murdering babies does not glorify God. Our freedoms are about to be lost. What can we do about it?

Peace.
