Thought for the Month – September 2014

Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Daniel 3:25 Have you ever been in a situation where it seemed there was no way out? In Daniel chapter three, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were in such a situation. King Nebuchadnezzar had them thrown into a burning fiery furnace, and it was there that they were supposed to die. But a miracle took place. The LORD joined them in the fire, and they were delivered! They didn’t even smell of smoke! Many preachers will tell you that, as a child of God, you can expect the same kind of deliverance in times of trouble, but honestly, it is not that simple. He will not deliver just anybody. There was a reason God delivered these three young men — they had refused to bow down to the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up! Even though it meant certain death, they would not bow! They told the king that he could throw them into the fiery furnace if he wanted to, but that if he did, God would deliver them! And the part I love the most is, they said that even if God chose not to deliver them, they still weren’t going to dishonor their God by...

Thought for the Month – Light for the Journey

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 Life is full of distractions. There is an overabundance of things that can claim our attention and occupy our minds. Some of these things are good, many of these things are not. There are things that tend to bless and edify, and there are things that defile and lead to depression, anger and lust. It is a fundamental law that nothing can be added to a vessel that is full. We need to fill our minds with those things that are pure and holy and edifying. Because when we fill our hearts and minds with those things that are true and pure and lovely and virtuous, there will be no room for that which would tend to defile to enter in. The Word of God declares that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost. Let us fill these temples with goodness and light. Start your day each morning with prayer and Bible reading, and thus you will be better prepared to face the coming day with all of its distractions. Editor: I am very pleased to tell you that Pastor Ken Kemble,...

Keep Your Eyes On Jesus!

In Matthew 14:22-33 we find a familiar story, and one that I think is very significant. Our Lord Jesus Christ had been preaching and, as usual, had attracted a large crowd. Five thousand men, besides women and children, had gathered to hear Him, and He not only taught them, He fed them all (possibly as many as ten thousand people) through a miracle of provision (verses 20-21). After He had fed them, He sent them away, and instructed His disciples to get into a boat and go ahead of Him to the other side of the Sea of Galilee while He Himself went up into a mountain alone to pray. While Christ was in prayer, there came a terrible storm, and the waters of the sea became severely troubled. But in the fourth watch of the night (somewhere between 3AM and 6AM), He went out to the boat, walking on the water! When the disciples (who were, I’m sure, already very concerned about the weather) saw Him, they were frightened, and thought they were looking at an apparition! Knowing this, Jesus said “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid!” Peter—always the first to speak up, good or bad—said “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water!” So Jesus instructed Peter to come on out to Him. Following Christ’s instruction, Peter proceeded...
