Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

The book of Jude spells out very plain and stern warnings for the child of God living in the last days.  These warnings are huge caution signs to the heart of the born again.  When we read these verses it almost makes us quiver inside because of the familiarity of our own experiences in our daily life.  There is no doubt that these days and times are upon us!  But my favorite verses of Jude are the closing statements.  These few verses are pure encouragement for the Saint of God.  It is as if the Lord sternly cautions us of the hell we will face in these days and then He reminds us that we are preserved in the plan of God.  Amen!  Our verse today is the very first verse of encouragement.  We are given a command that will help us wade through the deepest waters of the last days.  He says to pray.  Oh how the child of God needs to pray.  We must be careful not to allow our busy lives to bypass prayer.  There are many ways and settings to pray, but the setting mentioned here is very serious.  As we pray while driving, while working, while we go to and fro within a daily schedule we can be assured this will give us the renewing fellowship of prayer.  But taking time to pray in the Holy Ghost is designated dedication.  It is a time to where we stop everything.  This is a time we remove ourselves from hindrance.  This time is dedicated to Him.  We must not over look this time.  It is this special time that we build strength for what we are about to be faced with.  It is this type prayer that renews our unction.  It is this time that refreshes our relationship with the Lord.  Are you feeling overwhelmed?  Are you ready to just walk away and quit it all?  Dear friend, you are in dire need of prayer in the Holy Ghost.  Make time to sit with God today.  Amen.

John 9:35  …Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

Oh, what a question!  This question in our text is the most vital question to mankind.  There is not another question asked that awaits such an answer.  The answer to this question determines the eternal destination of the soul.  It is not a trick question.  It is not a question that has to be answered verbatim, but rather from the heart.  Not even words can utter this answer.  The acceptable answer is beyond the words spoken.  Our text for today is the last part of verse 35.  It is taken from the passage where Jesus has healed a blind man.  The crowd refuses to believe this miracle.  They have discontinued fellowship with this man because of his amazing life change.  This man has been touched by the Lord Jesus and the change it has made in his life is too much for his carnal friends.  They are offended at the miraculous transformation.  Ha, can anyone relate??  Sinful society refuses to accept the miracles of the Lord even to this day.  So, here in the passage, society has cast out this healed man.  Jesus finds him and asked him the question in our text.  Notice our verse closely.  Jesus did not ask him if he believed in the Son of God.  He asked him if he believed ON the Son of God.  To believe in the Lord is a humanly natural thing.  We are created in the image of God therefore; we naturally believe in God.  But to believe ON Him is a powerful, life changing and eternal thing!  This question is a reasoning question.  You see my friend; it is a spiritual question that requires a spiritual answer.  When a sinner comes under conviction it is because the Spirit of God has come ON him and pressed his heart for the answer.  This man in our verse is definitely being asked a reasoning question.  You might ask where the Spirit is.  My friend, Jesus is there in person.  Jesus is God!  Therefore, this man is staring the trinity in the face!!  Secondly, this is a redemption question.  The convicted sinner that answers this question has made a spiritual trip to Calvary.  Jesus died ON Calvary to pay our sin debt.  Therefore, we must believe ON the Son of God and His completed work there.  You might say that at this point in the verse Jesus has not yet died on Calvary.  My friend, the scriptures teach us that Jesus died on Calvary even before the foundation of the world!  Lastly, this is a relationship question.  By believing ON the Son of God would prove whose he is.  It is a positional question.  The sinner’s answer places him in the family of God.  His answer proves he is a son of God.  My friend, our spiritual vocabulary proves whose we are.  It proves whether our father is the Lord Jesus or the Devil.  I am not speaking of clean vocabulary or even a religious vocabulary.  I am speaking of a spiritual vocabulary.  It is beyond spoken words.  It is spiritual.  It is spiritual code.  Do you understand spiritual code?  Your answer to the question determines whether you believe in the Son of God or ON the Son of God.  Wow, what a powerful question!  Amen.

John 10:17-18  Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.  18  No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.  10:30  I and my Father are one.

To be a saved child of God is the most peaceful comfort known to mankind.  It is a position of complete safety from eternal judgment and damnation.  Being born in sin, our greatest need in life is to be redeemed of our condemnation of sin.  The only eternal redemption is by the perfect, spotless blood of the true Lamb of God.  Jesus died upon the cross that His blood might be shed.  This shed blood has the power to redeem the souls of the entire world.  Those who accept the offer are redeemed for eternity.  What a peace to know that you are counted as one of the redeemed!  So, was the Lord Jesus a victim of violence?  Was He taken by force and forcibly nailed to the cross?  Was He tragically murdered?  When He prayed in the garden that the bitter cup pass, was he actually trying to get out of having to die?  When the soldiers arrested Him, was it because they had cornered Him and took Him into custody by force?  My friend, the answer to all these questions are NO!  The Lord Jesus voluntarily gave His life for the blood shed redemption of all mankind.  He could have walked away from Calvary.  He could have evaded the soldiers.  He could have even escaped the hands of the crucifiers.  He could have pulled Himself from the cross and climbed down and walked off that cruel mountain of death.  How could He have done such?  Because He is God!  He completed the purchase of redemption because it was His eternal desire to do so!  He did this because He loves us!  Our text verses are powerful verses of His sovereignty and His deity.  The Lord Jesus is God manifested in flesh.    Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  [7]  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  [8]  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. [9]  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.  Praise the Lord!  What peace we, as the redeemed, can enjoy knowing our Lord and Saviour is the God of all creation and that He has the power to give His life and to take His life.  Yet He chose to give it for us.  He chose to give His life that the redeeming blood might be provided.  And… we can live in complete victory, because after the redeeming blood was shed and delivered to the eternal mercy seat, He took His life back and ascended back to the throne room of God and sat down on the right hand of God as He intercedes on our behalf.  Hallelujah!  God sat down beside God!  Now that my friend is peace in my soul.  To know that our redemption is the authentic and only acceptable salvation for mankind.  Wow, what a joy!  What a peace deep in my soul!  Psalm 103:1  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. [2]  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:  [3]  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;  [4]  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.  Amen!!  What great joy and peace to be a saved child of God!

John 11:4  When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

Jesus had received word that his friend Lazarus was very sick.  He was so sick that it appeared he might even die.  Lazarus’ sisters, Mary and Martha, had sent a message to Jesus of this sickness hoping He would come heal Lazarus to save him from death.  But the scriptures tell us that Jesus stayed where He was for two more days after hearing this alarming news.  Why would the Lord not jump up and run to the rescue immediately upon receiving the news of Lazarus’ sickness??  Our text verse is Jesus’ response to the news two days earlier.  He announced that this sickness was not “unto death”.  In other words, this sickness was not meant to end Lazarus’ earthly life, but to give God glory.  Many times, we miss the point of our troubles.  We tend to focus on what might happen.  Our agenda is if we don’t stop this then this may happen or that may happen.  I am sure they had tried everything possible to heal Lazarus, but nothing worked.  Why?  Because this sickness was that the Son of God might be glorified.  This sickness was specifically allowed so that Jesus could perform a miracle and be glorified.  My friend, we are not God and neither do we have the mind of God; therefore, we cannot foresee the aspects of God’s plan for our life.  But there is one thing we do know and that is that God is sovereign in His works.  We are His servants and our lives are to glorify Him.  If we could get a bird’s eye view of our life then we would be in complete awe of what is really going on.  I have a friend who has a small drone.  There is a viewing monitor on the hand controller.  When the drone is flying high above, you can see what is just over the hill or what is just past the tree line.  If only we could see what God sees and knows.  But we are human and if we could see ahead then we would most likely mess things up.  Dear friend, God has much plans for our lives.  Some of these plans will include what we might consider bad or maybe even tragedy.  But to the Lord it is that He might be glorified in our life.  In our passage, Jesus abodes two more days after hearing Lazarus was sick.  He was waiting for Lazarus to actually die.  Why??  Simply so that He could bring him back to life.  When it seems as though the Lord has left us alone in this trial it is most likely Him working in the background.  He is in the shadows arranging the pieces of this circumstance that He may be glorified.  This is why the scriptures teach us over and over that we must be patient.  To be patient we must be filled with faith.  Patient and faith will do all they can do and wait on the Lord to do the things they cannot do.  My friend, He has promised He will never leave us nor will He forsake us.  He’s here.  He is working and waiting.  This will eventually be glory unto Him.  Amen.

Today’s devotion is written by one of our monthly supported missionaries.  Bro. Bobby Stewart is a missionary to the legislators of our country, both state and national.  Through the powerful workings of God, he is making a significant difference in the fight to keep our country God Bless America.  

Psalm 119:105  Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

In the year 1620, before the Pilgrims departed Holland to make their way to the "new world", Pastor John Robinson called for a solemn fast and delivered a sermon to those prepared for embarkation.  In his sermon he stated, "I charge you, before God and His blessed angels, that you follow me no further than you have seen me follow the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Lord has more truth yet to break forth out of His Holy Word.  I cannot sufficiently bewail the condition of the reformed churches, who are come to a period in religion, and will go at present to no further than the instruments of their reformation.  Luther and Calvin were great and shining lights in their times, yet they penetrated not into the whole counsel of God.  I beseech you, remember it, 'tis an article of your church covenant, that you be ready to receive whatever truth shall be made known to you from the written Word of God."   I do love the Bible...God's Holy Word.  During the months of May and June, we have been privileged to see God take His Word and work miracles in the hearts of many.  The Revival meetings; Camp-Meetings; Youth Camps; regular Church services, as well as, meetings with legislators on local, state, and federal levels have been enriched by the Power of the Scriptures.  God has renewed a hunger to know more of Him and His Word.  The Word of God works.  We've seen it transform lives, salvage homes, rescue businesses, and even set a nation on the right course.  Unfortunately, we live in an hour when the blessed scriptures are being ignored and rejected.  In April, as we watched the Notre Dame Cathedral in France a blaze, I was reminded of the historical account of France's revolutionary period. There was a great campaign to dechristianize France.  To do so a

substitute religion had to be introduced.  It was during that time that the old metropolitan church of Notre Dame was reconsecrated as a "Temple of Reason"...promoting Philosophy.  In November 1793, a festiival was held in Notre Dame where the goddess 'Reason' was personified by an actress and carried into the cathedral on the shoulders of men dressed in Roman costume.  The Paris Commune ordered that all churches be closed and converted onto other venues.. Church bells were melted down and used to cast cannons.  The National Assembly passed a resolution declaring "There is no God".  The efforts of Faith for America Ministry is combating such moves in modern America.  We would be foolish to believe that there is not a plot to move our nation in this direction.  I beseech you, Preach the Word; Study the Word; Be doers of the Word; Contend for the Word; and Let your Conversation be as becometh the Word. Please pray that God would enlarge our platform and enable us to make full proof of the ministry to which He has called us.  We covet your prayers as we are gearing up for our Israel trip in September and making plans to launch a new initiative in August.  I must confess, being away for two weeks in September will affect us financially, but we are believing the Lord will provide.   May God continue to bless you as you faithfully serve Him.
