When the righteous bear rule!
"Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad." Psalm 45: 6-9. “But unto the Son he saith, thy throne, O God, is forever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” Hebrews 1: 8, 9.
How wonderful it would be if all our governors and presidents, and those in authority loved righteousness and hated wickedness! How wonderful it will be when our Lord Jesus Christ who does love righteousness and hates wickedness will return from heaven and take his place on the throne of the kingdoms of this world and rule with a rod of iron and authority in his righteousness and holiness! Then will there be peace and joy and harmony once again on the earth. Come quickly Lord Jesus. We need your divine authority and leadership

Lip of truth!
"The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment." Proverb 12: 19.
Truth will prevail and last forever. God is true, therefore eternal and everlasting. His word is true and trustworthy, therefore we can rely on it.
All kinds of fantasies and lies may come and pass away, but whatever is true, that will remain. If one's relationship to God is true, troubles may come, doubts may come, a certain falling away for a time may occur, but like the evening tide, that sweet fellowship with the Lord will return to the one who in truth knows him in whom he has believed. If the foundation of the home is dug deep and set upon the rock of the true God, the Lord Jesus Christ, that house will stand and endure forever. If a marriage is founded upon true and genuine unselfish love, that marriage relationship will be forever.
Salvation which is true through the Lord Jesus Christ is a truth which will abide through all generations. Think therefore on things which are true, and speak things which are true.

Let it be heard!
I have learned, and am still learning, that when I speak God's praises with my lips, and let my thoughts become audible to myself and to God, that my prayer and meditation becomes more meaningful to me than if I just think with my mind my praise and prayer to God, and remember with my mind his power. If we will speak with our lips what we know and feel in our heart, then our words take wings, as it were, and accomplish the mission and purpose for which they were meant.
God told Moses: "speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregations and their beast drink." Numbers 20: 8. God didn't tell Moses to go up and just look at the rock and think in his mind that the rock had water and was capable of providing their needs, he told him to use his lips and speak to the rock where every one could hear. Jesus Christ is our rock, a fountain of life that will never run dry. We need to move our lips and speak audibly to him.
"And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear." Isaiah 65: 24

The harvest is ready!
"And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted; and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. then saith he unto his disciples, 'the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.' " Matthew 9: 35-38.
Isn't it a shame that we want God to do so much for us, but we do so little for him?
Thought For Today - April 26 - Avoid The Strange Woman ( or worldliness) !

Avoid the strange woman (or worldliness)
“My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. Keep my commandments and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. Say unto wisdom, thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: that they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flatereth with her words.” Proverbs 7: 1-5.
Born again Christians are considered to be the bride of Christ and we are married to him. Any intercourse with the world and worldly things that would alienate us from him is considered by God as amounting to spiritual adultery. We are warned against the flattery of the world and its’ enticements even as the young man in the proverb is warned to remove himself from the enticement of the harlot.
Seek not pleasure and comfort from the "strange woman". Go not after other Gods, find your pleasure and comfort in almighty God alone, who is able to put the proper kind of joyfulness in our hearts. Worldliness is constantly calling to us as a harlot seeks after her prey. Be not deceived by the glitter and glamour of the works of darkness, for in the end comes only destruction from such associations.
The word of God, and the commandments of the Lord, if we keep them in our heart, is able to keep us from wandering away and falling into the trap of ungodliness. God is able to save us and to keep us from falling into the trap of the strange woman, and from the powers of darkness..
"And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation. All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?" Psalm 35: 9,10.
Thought For Today - April 25 - Boast Not In Ourselves !

Boast not in ourselves!
"If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth." Proverbs 30: 32.
We must be aware of our own weakness, and not be over confident in our own strength in spiritual things, and not be haughty and high minded. For wherein we seem to be the most confident, it is here that we are in the most danger of failure. We must be in a state of constant prayer and communion with the Lord, asking him to supply our strength and faith, and keep us steadfast and immoveable.
Jesus warned his disciples that he was to be betrayed by one of them, and that he would be delivered up to the authorities to be crucified: "And Jesus saith unto them, all ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. But Peter said unto him, although all shall be offended, yet will not I. And Jesus saith unto him, verily I say unto thee, that this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice." Mark 14: 27-30
Let us not boast in our own strength to see us through trying times, but rely on the promises of God that he will supply the grace that we need in times of trial.

When we willingly submit our spirit to the administration and control of God, the Holy Spirit, then we can know with confidence and assurance that we have divine guidance, and the following scripture is true:
"I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. Many sorrows shalt be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart." Psalm 32: 8-11.

Jesus said: "Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. and why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and behold a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." Matthew 7: 1-5.
This does not mean that we are not to be discerning between truth and error, good and evil, but we cannot see all the reasons and motives of others, and the final consequences of their actions.
We all need to look into a spiritual mirror, as it were, and see ourselves for who, and what we are, and examine our own motives and actions and confess our own faults. We need to stop blaming others for our own mistakes, and ask God's forgiveness and seek to please him.
Thought For Today - April 22 - Better than Rubies !
Visit us online at www.telehelppublications.com/Christianbookstore.html Thought For Today - April 22 Better than rubies!
" Receive my instruction and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it." Proverbs. 8: 10,11.
Nothing could be as valuable to us as the knowledge of God. Meeting with God is the most important activity of the day, thus, allowing God to speak to us through his word and Holy Spirit, and show us the way.
"I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me; Riches and honor are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver." Proverbs 8: 17-19.. "How excellent is thy loving kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. they shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. for with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. "Psalm 36: 7-9.
Thought For Today - April 21
Unbound and set free!
"God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land." Psalm 68: 6.
To have a rebellious spirit against God and his chain of authority which he has established on earth is like being bound hand and foot with chains, and being left all alone in the desert where there is no food and no water. The bible tells us that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.
Rebellion against God and his word is the root cause of all the troubles in the world.
