The Desert Shall Rejoice & Blossom

To know, believe in, trust, live according to, and proclaim the Salvation that we have in Jesus Christ is to leap for and sing with joy and shout with praise because we have went from death to life! The world, the devil, and our fallen flesh with its sinful desires can not offer us one note of true peace and joy and hope and love. Only God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit satisfies with overflowing! Amen!


The LORD Has a Day of Vengeance

There will be a judgement! God will bring to an end all rebellion and disobedience. There will be punishment for sin; Eternal conscious torment in hell for all who die in unbelief and with out faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Believe in Jesus and you will no longer be under judgment, because of you believe in Jesus then He has already taken your judgment on Himself on the Cross! Repent and believe in Jesus and live for ever. Refuse to repent and believe in Jesus and you will...


Waiting for the Judgement/Grace of the Judge

As Isiah 33:22 makes clear, "For the LORD is our judge; the LORD is our lawgiver; the LORD is our king; he will save us." It means eternal life to know, believe and live in accordance to these truths. It means eternal judgment and wrath to not know, believe, and live in accordance to these truths. The Lord is Righteous and we must be righteous. This is only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and have His righteousness reckoned to us! What a good and loving King of kings and Lord...


A King and Spirit of Righteousness and Justice

What a wonderful truth and promise given Christians in Isaiah 32:17 "And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever." The only source of righteousness, peace, and eternal life with God is in and from Jesus Christ. Let us rest and trust in the crucifixion, death, resurrection, ascension, intercession, and return of Jesus Christ as our peace that passes understanding! Amen!


Trusting in Man or the Lord

In whom or what do you put your ultimate trust, hope, security, peace, faith, belief, and joy? If you put them in anyone or anything of creation he or it will fail you for he or it is passing away. If you put them in God who is eternal, all powerful, all know, and perfectly holy and good then you will abide forever in love and peace. Jesus Christ crucified is our gospel and our only trust, hope, security, peace, faith, belief, and joy! Amen!


Trusting in Pharaoh or the Lord

It is sin, rebellion, deception, and deadly to put our hope, trust, and security in anything other than the Lord. Only the Lord is all knowing, all powerful, perfectly good, absolutely holy, always righteous and just. Let us cry out to and worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Amen!


Lips Near, Hearts Far

The Lord desires your "heart" your all! We are commanded to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We are to love, trust, worship, be devoted, fear God alone. Christ did not die on the cross to make people superficial hypocrites who speak words of faith yet live unrepentant lives of rebellion. Christ died so that by God's grace we can be made new in His righteousness and have new living hearts that beat with the love of God! Amen!


A Tested Stone, a Precious Cornerstone

No one can escape God's holiness! No one can escape God's just judgement! Jesus Christ is the only Way, Truth, and Life; no one gets to the father [can have forgiveness, peace, love, life...] except through Jesus Christ. We must put no confidence, security, or hope in anything of creation, only in the Creator, redeemer, sustainer Lord of host! Amen!


The LORD of Hosts- a Crown of Glory

In humility a person repents and believes and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit brings about this humility. If a person remains in unbelieving pride he thinks he can live however he wants and will not face judgement. The prideful live only for themselves and according to their flesh. Jesus sets us free from this deadly and destructive pride! Praise you Jesus!


Atoned For - The Removal of Sin

As the Scriptures make clear, "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places," [Ephesians 6:1] we have powerful enemy. The good news is that Jesus has defeated the devil on behalf of those who are saved by Jesus' work on the cross. Jesus has won the victory over sin, death and the devil! Let us live in this victory by God's grace...


O LORD, we wait for you

The salvation we have in Jesus Christ is greater than all the riches of this earth. It is stronger than any wind, wave or storm. It is more sure than any earthly guarantee. The salvation we have in Jesus Christ is truly our only hope, peace, strength and comfort because it is life, eternal life! Amen!


Praise God for A New Earth

To have faith and trust and belief in God is to hunger and thirst for Him more than anything else. Jesus Christ alone saves! Jesus Christ alone gives hope, and peace, and love! Jesus Christ alone satisfies! He is our feast our joy our all! Amen!


This Earth Will Pass Away

This fallen world will be destroyed. Actually, all of these heavens and earth will be done away with and replaced with a New Heaven and New Earth. If you are placing you faith, hope, comfort, peace, security... in anything of creation then it will ultimately fail you as it passes away. Let us put our faith, hope, comfort, peace, and security in the Creator, in Jesus Christ the Savior, in the indwelling work of the Holy Spirit. Only in God is eternal life, let us live in Him!


Sweet Smelling Aroma

O Lord, help my hunger for you always be greater than my hunger for food, help my thirst for you always be greater than thirst for drink, help me in weakness to remember that you are our strength, help me to face plenty and hunger, abundance and need-- all with thanksgiving, gratitude and faith in you!


The Egyptians Will Know the LORD

God is so good to His elect! He strips away their idols, He humbles them to repentance, He gives them the gift of faith in His son Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit! No matter how separated from God you are, if you have been chosen, atoned for, and loved, God will draw you near through the cross of Jesus Christ! Thank you Lord!


Forgotten the God of Your Salvation

You can gain all the things of the world, yet if you forget God then you have nothing eternal, nothing that will last. If you remember God- trust, believe, and seek to give Him all the glory and obey Him then you have eternal life. Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of Lords and He will be exalted over every nation, person, and part of creation. Let us never forget who is God, who is King, who is savior, and who is the only way, truth, and life- Jesus Christ the Son of God.


The Glory of Moab Brought Low

God is so good! He displays his justice, mercy, and love. God brings about His vengeance, His glory, His love and truth. The attributes of God are on display on the cross of Jesus Christ! Let us praise God -- he so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son so that whoever would believe in Him would not perish but have eternal life. Amen!


I Will Ascend to Heaven

Everyone who exalts themselves above God will be humbled by God. A person will either be humbled by being made alive by the Holy Spirit to repent and have faith in Jesus Christ as their true Lord and Savior or a person will be humbled by being cast down into eternal death and punishment. Let us humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord that He may lift us up by His grace and mercy! Amen!


I Will Punish the World for Its Evil

God is holy! God is just! God is love! God is angry! God pours out his grace and mercy as refreshing rain on the elect! God pours out His wrath and fury on the condemned! The elect praise your name o Lord, for you have poured out the wrath and fury we deserved on your Son Jesus Christ so that we could receive your grace and mercy! Praise the Lord!


God is My Salvation

Every person needs a savior! Before we are saved we are under God's condemnation, wrath, anger, and punishment. If you have faith in and are alive in Jesus Christ you are saved from God (from his just wrath), you are saved by God (by his sacrifice) and you are saved for God (for his delight and praise). God is our Salvation in every way. Let us boast in the Lord our strength and salvation!
