Psalm 128:1 Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. 2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.


My friend, it pays to just do right.  Life presents many opportunities everyday for us to choose right, go right or to do right.  Many times we allow the carnal side of us to make the wrong decision.  Then there are the times we over react and do wrong.  And we must also mention the times we under react and that too causes us to choose wrong over right.  Decisions, we must learn to go with God, not our flesh.  Our verses for today offer us some help in doing right.  “Blessed” here in verse 1 means to be happy.  Happy is “everyone that feareth the Lord”.  Our word “feareth” means to reverent.  If we live our daily lives in great reverence of the Lord, then it will assist us in doing right.  Notice that this person walks with the Lord.  To walk with the Lord means that we are conducting our lives as the Word of God commands and that we are heeding to the guidance of the Spirit of the Lord.  If we practice reverence toward the Lord, that character in itself will help us do right.  Let’s put it this simple way; our daily decisions and actions must be made in a holy state of mind.  The times we over react are times that we did not take in consideration if the Lord would be pleased with our actions.  I must say that I am guilty of over reacting much of the time.  What about when we under react.  These are the times that we procrastinate and put off taking care of a situation.  Many of us are guilty of hoping the situation will take care of itself.  Being slothful does not please the Lord.  Even though we must discern the times the Lord does want us to hold up a bit.  Verse 2 reveals what our life will reap if we reverence the Lord in all our decisions and if we determine to walk according to His Word.  For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.  There are many verses in the Word that remind us that many times we reap what we sow.  Let’s determine today to make the Lord look good with how we conduct our life.  Simply do right.  Amen.

Psalm 112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.


My friend it pays to go with God.  Any Christian that leans into the worldly system to schedule their life will soon find themselves miserable.  The true child of God belongs to the Lord and has an internal yearning to serve the Lord.  So many Christians of today are pressing themselves to be overwhelmed with the world.  It is almost like we enjoy being miserable.  We are guilty of taking on more worldly hobbies than we can accommodate time-wise or financially.  We take on more worldly responsibility that we possible can efficiently complete.  Sometimes I think it would be easier to beat our self in the head with a stick.  My friend, if you give your flesh an inch it will take a mile.  We must learn to force our carnal to be in submission to our saved soul.  Our verse for today reminds us of the importance of our reverence to the Lord.  Ask yourself this question; Does my life reverence the Lord?  Stop and evaluate your last month.  Did you spend most of your time pleasing man and the world?  Or did you strive to look for ways to please the Lord?  A quick way to know if we are putting God first or the world first is to look at our initiative of the decision and situation.  Did we put Him first in the matter?  Did we please Him before the flesh?  Did we put our fleshly desires in place of serving Him?  Oh me!  Dear friend He comes first.  He must be the centerpiece.  We are a blessed generation.  The problem is that we allow our God given blessings to pull us away from God.  Why do most vacations have to be on the Lord’s Day instead of the world’s day??  On average most Christians will plan their extracurricular activities on a Sunday.  Why is this?  It is because we have job responsibilities during the week and we would not dare waste our vacation days when we can just play hooky on the Lord’s Day.  Oh me!  I know I am on the soapbox but let’s ponder on this for a moment.  Friend, we better not forget where our blessings come from!  Christian, don’t dare allow the world to take priority over the one who saved your soul from Hell and blessed you with all the provisions of life.  So, how do we find ourselves in this backslidden condition?  Our verse gives us the answer. Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.  We have put Worship and the Word on the backburner of our life.  Notice the blessed man “delighteth greatly” in the Word of God.  We must build our day upon the Word and we must birth our week with Worship.  Get in the Word and stay in the Word.  When our life becomes more worldly than spiritual it is simply because we are not in the Word and we have skipped worship.  Amen!

Psalm 119:69  The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart. 70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.


As I read these two verses this morning, I could not help but think of this contemporary movement that is attempting to swallow up the churches of our country.  They continually make fun of the old time Bible based churches.  They say we are out of date and that we refuse to change with the times.  Well my friend, there are many things that we must change with the times, but the Word of God is not one of them.  The Lord is God and He changeth not!  We may change our dress styles, our hair styles and even our communication styles but the Lord changeth not.  Our lives may become computerized and unpersonalized but God changeth not.  His Word is still the eternal truth.  This modern number hungry crowd may lash out against those of us that stand with the truth but in the end His Word will win.  The liberal contempories may make fun of old time worship and the old time Word but in the end they will bow to the truth.  Notice our text.  The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.”   My dear friend, if they have talked you out of your Bible then they have fed you a lie.  If they have talked you out of your old time Bible based worship then they have filled you with lies.  It won’t stand.  This contemporary movement is a lie that has been forged against the truth and it refuses to stand against liberalism, homosexualisim, lesbianism, transexualisim, sinisim, heathenisim and wickedisim.  Their invitation is come as you are and leave as you are and be what you want to be.  But as for me… I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.  Verse 70 sums up the issue we have.   Their heart is as fat as grease”.  It is a heart problem.  America has heart disease.  Her heart is covered with the fat of sin.  She needs open heart surgery.  She needs bypass surgery.  America needs surgery formed by the sword of truth.  But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.  The whole bunch may walk away from the truth and power of God… “but I delight in thy law”.  I have been ranting for a while now, but let’s stop for a moment and look into our text for today and diagnose the problem.  The Psalmist names the sin at the beginning of both verses and then he claims his stand on the true Word at the end of both verses.  My friend, the heart disease America is suffering from is because she has changed her diet.  She has left the healthiness of the true and eternal Word and turned to these perverted books that claim to be a Bible.  Every single perverted version of the Word of God is derived from a truth altered basis.  The true Word is from God.  They may be making fun of the old King James Bible but in the end the Lord will force them to bow and admit the truth.  As for me and my house, we will stay with the old paths, the old book and the one and true God.  Jer. 6:16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.  Dear friend, stay with God!  It will be worth it.  Amen.

Titus 2:11  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,  12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;


Let’s take a moment and bless the Lord for His grace.  Let’s lift a hand in praise for His saving and securing grace.  It is by grace that we are breathing in air this morning.  It is by His grace that we, as a child of God, have our name written in Glory.  Our three verses here in our text for today are perfect descriptions of the three forms of grace in our lives.  Verse 11 is the grace of Justification.   Eph. 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.  I have been saved by grace through faith.  His saving grace has paid the debt for our sin; therefore our soul has been justified before God Almighty.  Amen!  Verse 12 describes His grace through Sanctification.  I am saved by grace through faith daily by the convicting power of the Spirit of God that dwells in me because of verse 11.  Hallelujah!  Acts 15:8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; 9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.  Daily the Spirit guides us through His convicting power.  It is through faith that we heed to His guidance.  Verse 12 of our text gives a short list of His powerful work of grace in our daily walk;  teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.  And lastly, verse 13 reveals our Glorification in that we will be saved by His grace when He calls us from this world.  Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.  Now I think maybe we should take a moment and lift both hands in praise to our Lord and Saviour for His mighty grace.  It is because of His grace that I am saved, am being saved and will be saved.  Amen and Amen.

Revelation 22:20  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.


The Lord is coming!  The Lord is coming!   1Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  When we that are saved speak of the coming of the Lord we are referring to the verses I just quoted.  Even though at the time we, that are saved, are pulled off the earth in the rapture, Jesus will not physically step upon the earth at that time.  He will not step back on this earth until He comes with a great army of saints to fight the battle of Armageddon at the end of the seven-year tribulation.  This will be the actual physical return of the Lord to the earth.  We must be careful as we study the Word not to confuse these two instances.  Most of the time when the scripture mentions the return of the Lord it is referring to His physical return.  But either way we can assuredly say that Jesus is coming.  Maybe today.  Maybe tonight or tomorrow.  He is coming.  No doubt He is not coming today to fight the end of tribulation battle.  If He were coming to the battle today then we would have already been raptured from the earth seven years ago.  Therefore when we speak of the Lord coming we are speaking of the rapture.  It is said that the famous and great writer, M.R. De Haan, always kept a quote lying on his desk that said “Perhaps Today”.  We should live our daily lives in the same frame of mind.  Perhaps He will come today.  Perhaps we will be snatched from this world and escorted into the celestial world, Today.  Our text is from the end of the Bible.  The Lord Jesus said; “surely I come quickly”.  The writer John said in response; “even so, come, Lord Jesus”.  I have the confidence in my soul that I can, without hesitation, repeat what John said.  Can you?  Even so, come, Lord Jesus!  Perhaps Today!  Amen

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
