Program 22 (5-17-14) Chapter 6 of the Gospel of John refers to a number of disciples that followed Jesus for an “easy meal” but when Jesus served them a “difficult meal”, they couldn’t swallow it? So it is today as many “followers” of Jesus enjoy an easy “feel good” word but will walk away from the table if a difficult word is served. The only way to stay seated at the Lord’s table is to love the truth and realize what Peter realized when he stated, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
Program 21 (5-13-14) What will it take for you to “believe”? If you don’t believe or trust in God, how much more evidence to you need to be totally convinced He exists, that He is our Creator and as His creation, we are accountable to Him? Is it that God hasn’t given us sufficient evidence of His existence or are we in denial of the evidence already presented to us?
Program 20 (5-8-14) This program is called “Vetting the Bride”. Salvation is not as much of a matter of our accepting the Lord as it is of Him accepting us. Just as we don’t want to marry someone who doesn’t love us, Jesus doesn’t either. He said, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me.” Many will find out too late that they are nothing more than a “wedding crasher”. Whether we truly love the Lord is a question none of us should take lightly.
Program 19 (5-3-14) The Lord woke me early in the morning two days in a row this week and gave me a word regarding the time of preparation and the urgency of the hour. Now is the time to strengthen what remains. These words were posted for April 30 and May 1 on http://strength4thejourney.com/todays-rhema-word/ This program is dedicated to this topic and the neccessity for each of us to be obedient to whatever God says to do.
Program 18 (4-24-14) The topic of this program is “What stands between us and God?” Do we have too much “stuff”. Will we allow what was intended to be our blessing to become our curse. Jesus said, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mark 8:3.
