The Word of God is.

What more need you say?

If the word of God isn't, then Jesus Christ is a liar, according to his declaration in John 17:17. But the word of God is, and must be, if one true God exists.

Take a Journey 

Sunday, April 29, 2012 10:54:00 AM

Perhaps the most important piece of writing I have read since I first picked up a Bible and read it with any understanding (with some help of some friends) is this modern translation of the new covenant writings from Walter J. Cummins:

A Journey through the Acts and Epistles
The Authorized King James Version with Notes and a Working Translation of the book of Acts, and the personal epistles of Paul

Translated and edited by Walter J. Cummins, Scripture Consulting

He calls it a "Working Translation", meaning it is always under development, and does not claim to be the final authority or word on the subject of translating the Scriptures into English, nor in understanding the Author's original intention or meaning. How refreshing!

Numerous other people have assisted Mr. Cummins in the work; and the work represents a lifetime of disciplined and respectful biblical research by one of the world's foremost scholars of biblical texts and biblical understanding.

You can order your own copy of Journey from Daniel Bader's web site. It is a very nicely bound hardback. You can read a digital version over at Peter Coad's web site, which is a kind of interlinear, and which you may have to sign up for to take advantage of.

Means What It Says 

Sunday, February 26, 2012 10:10:00 AM

God's Word means what it says, and says what it means. God has a purpose for everything he says, where he says it, why he says, how he says, when he says, to whom he says it.

If you are more than three months old, you've probably discovered that the same is definitely not true concerning the word of man.

Which one would you want to build your life upon, if you had a choice from the beginning? The one that is reliable without fail, or the one that reliably fails? Which one would you choose to build your life upon, if you had a choice beginning this very day?

You have a choice.

Prosperity Guaranteed 

Friday, February 17, 2012 12:27:00 AM

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Isaiah 55:10, 11

Speak Truth 

Tuesday, February 07, 2012 11:50:00 AM

Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

- Ephesians 4:25

The truth is God's word, according to Jesus Christ.Every word that is not God's word, or that contradicts God's word, is a lie, and he who speaks lies is a liar.

A man who fills up his speeches with speculations about God's word is a liar, and if he does so intentionally, he is a deceiver. He takes a place along side God's arch-enemy, the Devil, in speaking lies in hypocrisy, in order to deceive and trick people. They do this to get something out of the people they deceive, without offering anything worthwhile in return. Hence they are liars and thieves.

You might as well say that they (the Devil and his spokesmen) are in league together, conspiring to hinder the purposes of God, among which is his desire that every man and woman should come unto the knowledge of the truth.

...speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.

Your neighbor certainly includes those who are partakers with you of the grace of God, who are born from above, are part of the family of God, having the same lord Jesus Christ and the same God and Father. Your neighbor has the same spirit from God as you do, and the same eternal life. All those not part of the family of God can benefit from the truth of God's word too, since the hearing and believing of God's word is required to become a part of the family.

Truth is always most profitably spoken with respect and love for the one, true God. If done in this manner, you see the added benefit mentioned in Ephesians 4:15:

...speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ...

Gasoline Less than 10 cents a Gallon in Oklahoma 

Monday, December 19, 2011 9:41:00 PM

It is easy to calculate, and you don't need a math degree. 4th Grade arithmetic will suffice.

I can buy more than 10 gallons of gasoline for one 2011 American Eagle silver dollar. The silver dollar is "legal tender" for all debts, public and private, according to the United States Mint, and authorized by the United States Congress. It has a stated value of "ONE DOLLAR" printed on at least 130 million of them minted since 1986. See:

View from the Mountaintop 

Sunday, October 16, 2011 5:38:00 PM

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

- Katharine Lee Bates, 1895

 

There are many who would like us to forget that. Tunes and music are remarkably valuable in helping us to remember things. What kind of tunes do you fill your head up with?

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

- Romans 12:1, 2

 

The word of God is the will of God. It Had To Be Simple...

Liberation

Take A Stand 

Thursday, August 25, 2011 3:00:00 PM

You are complete in him, in Christ, who is the head of all principality, and power, and might, and dominion. He has a name which above all names, both now and forever.

You are complete in the Christ, who God sent to be the full payment for all sin and all failures and all shortcomings and every ordinance ever written against you.

You have eternal life. How are you spending it? Are you acting like you have eternal life?

Why not take a stand for the one, true God and his word? Why not do so now?

Stand up, stand up. Stand up and be counted. Stand up for Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, the first born of many brethren. The first born from the dead.
