    • Good evening, friends, brothers and sisters. I have good news! Today we’re one day closer to the return of King Jesus than we were yesterday! One day, probably soon, but even if it’s a long time coming by our standards, it will still be soon!

      King Jesus told His disciples what things would be like in the end times. He said, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near!” (Luke 21:28)

      Jesus gave a sign that the disciples and generations after did not live to see – but we have seen it! It’s the sign of the “budding fig tree”. In Scripture, Israel is often described as a fig tree. After the Roman destruction of Israel in AD70, Israel did not exist as a nation until 1948. Israel, as prophesied in Isaiah 66:8, “became a nation born in a day”. After nearly 2,000 of the Diaspora, God drew His Chosen People back to their land!

      Then in1967, the “Six Day War”, in an awesome military triumph that shocked the world, “Israel defeated the Arab armies and captured the Sinai Peninsula and the Gaza Strip from Egypt, the Golan Heights from Syria and the West Bank from Jordan. The new cease-fire lines were easier for Israel to defend as most of them stretched along geographical barriers such as the Jordan River and the Suez Canal and because they provided strategic depth.”

      The fig tree has long since budded. Listen to what King Jesus said about that event:
      “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.” (Matthew 24:32-34)

      The same statement is recorded in Mark 13:28-30 and Luke 21:29-32. Repetition is emphasis.

      What is near? “Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.” All those things described by Jesus in the conversation reported in those three places. Which means the Great Tribulation and all that comes with it and immediately before it.

      We’re in the end zone! Hallelujah!

    • Kristi, thank you for always welcoming and loving your brothers and sisters in Christ. Your attitude shows visitors what King Jesus is like, And one who has seen Jesus has also seen God the Father, Who sent jesus to die for our sins.

      I’m very late getting here tonight, but maybe someone with insomnia will read these words…

      “Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

      Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?’ ”

      What is Jesus like? He’s not an angry God ready to rain down punishment on those who displease Him. He will if we leave Him no other choice, but God’s patience is long for those who are not defiant toward Him.

      1st John 1:9 says, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

      There are six very important words in that verse: confess, faithful, just, forgive, cleanse, all.

      “IF we confess our sins” – because, as verse 10 says, “if we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.” Romans 3:23 says it very plainly: “… or all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…”

      If we confess our sins, He is faithful…”All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” (John 6:37) You have the promise of King Jesus Himself – if you come to Jesus for the forgiveness of sins, there’s no way He will reject you.

      When Jesus was crucified, there were two thieves crucified with Him …

      “One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: ‘Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!’

      But the other criminal rebuked him. ‘Don’t you fear God,’ he said, ‘since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.’

      Then he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’

      Jesus answered him, ‘Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.’ ”
      (Luke 23:39-43)

      This thief had nothing to offer. It was too late for him to promise to reform. He didn’t know the right words for a formal profession of faith or a formal request for forgiveness.

      But King Jesus, in spite of His agony, made the effort to reassure this thief that he had been heard and his ignorant, desperate faith, if you could even call it faith, was enough. This thief had confessed his sins and the justice of God. In his agony, he “came to Jesus, and the One Who had come to die for him did not reject him.

      You don’t have to be good to be saved. On the contrary, you have to agree with God that you are a sinner in desperate need of a Savior. Agree, and then, instead of justice, ask the God of Creation for mercy in Jesus’ holy name. He will not reject you. No way.

      Because He loves you.

    • In John chapter 7, Jesus had gone to the Temple for the “Festival of Tabernacles”, which celebrates the harvest season and the Exodus from Egypt, both joyous occasions. Jesus began teaching the people, which it seems He loved to do. But the Pharisees began hassling Him, getting uglier and uglier. Jesus stood up to them and embarrassed them so much that they actually sent guards to arrest Him.

      The guards came back without Him, har har! When the angry Pharisees demanded to know why, the guards replied, “No one ever spoke the way this man does!” I’m on the verge of laughing out loud as I write this. 😀 😀 That’s my King!

      So the next day (John 8) the Pharisees set up some poor woman who had been caught in adultery – “in the act” they declared – and made her stand before the group. They were happy to humiliate someone if it would help them get rid of King Jesus. They pointed out that the Law of Moses required that she be stoned. Demanded of Jesus what He said.

      They hoped that He’d demand strict application of the Law, and the crowd would abandon Him. Or that He’d say let her go, and they’d denounce Him for not approving the Law.

      The man was not there. According to the Law, he was supposed to be stoned too. That’s how we know this woman was set up. He was a willing player in this heartless game.

      But instead of replying, Jesus bent down and began writing in the dirt with His finger. When they pressed Him to answer, “When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, ‘Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.’ ”

      This time, when He stooped down and began writing, they left. Why? The words used seem to indicate that what Jesus was writing was a list of the sins of the Pharisees confronting Him. Colossians 2:14 talks about “the handwriting of ordinances that was against us. which He “took away … nailing it to the cross”.

      But the real drama occurred when they left:

      “At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, ‘Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?’

      ‘No one, sir,’ she said.

      ‘Then neither do I condemn you,’ Jesus declared. ‘Go now, and leave your life of sin.’ ”

      This is the gentle, courteous, understanding treatment those who come to Jesus admitting their sins receive. He is not interested in humiliating us. He does not want to punish us. He wants to forgive us, if we only agree with Him that we are sinners and we need a Savior.

      There was a phrase used in baptism when I was very young – “Buried with Christ in baptism; raised to walk with Him in newness of life.”

      We don’t ask forgiveness of our sins so we can go on sinning and still go to Heaven when we die. We come to Jesus for forgiveness of our sins AND for a new life, in which God will begin to make us more like Jesus!

      A new life … lived by the power of the Holy Spirit Whom we receive when we come to God. That’s what it means to be “born again”!

      I’d ask for a show of hands, but I can’t see your hands. But this invitation is open to everyone who has not yet received Jesus. Receive Him now and find out how incredible, how wonderful it is t be a forgiven sinner living a new life!

      “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2nd Corinthians 5:17)

  2. I love that quote from Habakkuk. That stubborn determination makes me want to stand up and cheer and shout Hallelujah! We will persevere. When there’s no reason for hope, we have a hope that will not make us ashamed. When we’re exhausted, we are just at the beginning of the strength of the Holy Spirit.

    We will not quit. We will not be ashamed of the One Who died for us. We will not be bribed or intimidated or in any other way turned aside from following our God and Savior!

  4. Life is a lot like one of those old “good news / bad news” jokes. We often don’t know immediately what’s good news and what’s bad news. Examples:

    My favorite creamery stopped production of their organic, pasture-fed, no-GMO, no antibiotics milk forever a few weeks back. The milk their cows produced tasted so good that I undoubtedly drank too much. I used to have 16 ounces of it every morning with Carnation Breakfast Essentials for a fast but very nutritious breakfast. Also drank a glass or two as a nightcap. But they’re out of business, and the four other brands I tried didn’t taste good enough. Alas. Bad news!

    So, when my fridge quit two days ago, there wasn’t two or three gallons of expensive milk there to spoil. Good news!

    I looked for a used fridge at the Restore. Only one acceptable fridge, and it was cheap, but it was older than mine and had been abused. No guarantee. Pick up and install yourself, and my knees and back aren’t up to that. And I’d have had to rent a truck and an appliance dolly … Alas! Bad news!

    So I looked at Home Depot, no luck. Went to Lowe’s and if the paperwork goes through, I’ll have a NEW though 20% smaller fridge in the next 5-6 days. Delivered free! Good news!

    God’s timing is perfect. His ways are good for us. Thank You, Abba, for Your wisdom and for always keeping track of us and our needs, present or future!
