The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Smile A While

“It isn’t about a smile; its about what is inside your smile.”
Julia Roberts

Psalm 133

How wonderful and pleasant it is
when brothers live together in harmony!
For harmony is as precious as the
anointing oil
that was poured over Aaron’s head,
that ran down his beard
and onto the border of his robe.
Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from
Mount Harmon
that falls on the mountains of Zion.
And there the LORD has pronounced His
even life everlasting.
Psalm 133:1-3 (NLT)

The Devil Doesn’t Care

“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert.  Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour.”  1 Peter 5:8 (NASB)

The devil is more shrewd than most people realize.  He is a formidable enemy of the truth–and if he cannot lead a preacher into liberalism, he will persuade him to ride a spiritual hobby-horse every time he goes into the pulpit.  He will lead a preacher to spend precious time upholding his own opinions and his own theories.  Man-made tradition is so full of loopholes that when compared to the Word of God it can be quickly discovered as man-made tradition and not divinely dictated truth.

The devil doesn’t care how long, how fervently, nor how sincerely a man may preach, so long as that preacher is void of words that bring salvation.

The devil doesn’t fear the man who preaches man-made doctrine and dogma, rules and regulations, leaving out the words that tell the sinner God loves him, Jesus died for him and stands ready to save, to forgive, to keep, and to direct.

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8 (NASB)
