Welcome Back from NL`s Attack. Hope no one was wounded lets heal our wounds by Feeding On His Word Daily.

TOPIC: Way Back To God

Friday, June 27, 2014

TEXT: JEREMIAH 24:1-10

KEY VERSE: “Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good” (Jeremiah 24:5).

The vision of Jeremiah in this text was to raise the spirits of those gone into captivity, by assuring them of a happy return for being humble to leave their native land. It was also to remind those who refused to leave Jerusalem of a miserable captivity. We thus cannot always determine as to God’s love or hatred by what is immediately before us.

The sooner a child is corrected, the better the effects of the correction is likely to be. Even for those captives, the captivity was for their good; and God’s intentions are never in vain. Through affliction, they were convicted of sin, humbled under God’s hand, weaned from the world and taught to pray. They turned from their sins, particularly idolatry. God promised He would own them in captivity.

Believers today need to manifest the right attitude and disposition in whatever they are going through. A backslider will need to repent and return to the Lord as it is not God’s pleasure that such individuals end-up in such miserable conditions. Afflictions may come the way of a backslider, but these are not meant to foreclose their opportunities to come to God. Rather they are to achieve the opposite – drive them back to their maker and redeemer. Instead of perceiving tribulations as gruelling punishment from God, such should be seen as refining fire that is meant to remove all impurities in a sinner or backslider’s life and turn him back to his creator. If he does return, there is room for him in God’s court, as the Lord takes no pleasure in anyone remaining permanently estranged from Him.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is joy in heaven over a sinner who repents.

TOPIC: Respect The Word"Sunday 29, June 2014"*TEXT: JEREMIAH 23:33-40*
*"KEY VERSE: “And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God” (Jeremiah 23:36)."*
The Bible warns in Proverbs 17:19, “In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” The prophets in Jeremiah’s time disdained this precious admonition. Predictably, this made them slip, not only into falsehood and wrong doctrine, but also into divine judgment. In the preceding verses, God had been speaking against the excesses of Judah’s false prophets. The Lord also sent Jeremiah to warn the deceivers to be wary of their deceptive acts.
In the passage under consideration, God decided to warn everybody, and not just the false prophets, to desist from unguarded utterances. At this time, the people had begun to wonder about what really annoyed God and what their offences actually were. But they were speaking tongue-in-cheek because they knew why God was not happy with them. God indeed considered their utterances as idle words which He hated.
In our dealings with God, He has always drawn a line between what He expects of us and otherwise. It amounts to sin for anybody to pretend to be in doubt when he or she falls short of such expectation. That was one of the sins of the people of Judah. The almighty God considers such pretence as transgression. Jesus says: “every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
In this era of permissiveness, many people try to silence their guilty hearts by trying to rationalize the gravity of their sin. When they sin, they find a Bible passage and wrongly apply same to justify their transgression. We must ask the Spirit of God to direct our paths and let the word of God be our mirror.

TOPIC: Praising God"

Monday 30, June 2014"

*TEXT: PSALM 117:1,2*

*"KEY VERSE: “O praise the Lord, all ye nations, praise him, all ye people” (Psalm 117:1)."*
The leper out of the ten who were healed by the Lord Jesus Christ had an exceptional perspective on gratitude. They all cried to the Lord for help. But when the assistance came, the Lord did not hear from them again, except from one who “turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God” (Luke 17:15). What touching and deep-seated show of appreciation!
In the passage before us today, we consider these short but ennobling verses of praises to God for His unlimited love. No wonder John the Beloved in his epistle (1 John 4:8 ), declared that God is love. His nature is love; His attributes can be condensed into love.
His love is so great when we consider how He bore patiently with apostle Paul (when he was Saul, the archenemy and tormentor of the early church). In spite of the havoc he did to the early church, God, in his sovereignty and love, still arrested, saved and utilized him to expand the frontiers of the gospel. What a great God indeed!
For many of us who were rascals and whose destiny would have been hell, He was patient with us until we became born again. In the fullness of time, He saved and transformed our lives; He lifted us to be seated in the heavenly places with Christ Jesus, enjoying the benefits of the Kingdom - pardon, peace, purity, promotion, preservation, protection and eventually, paradise. We need to praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord!                                                  
*"THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Praise unbars the gates of heaven."*

TOPIC: Christ, The Only Hope

"Tuesday 01, July 2014"

*TEXT: JEREMIAH 23:1-8*

*"Key VERSE: “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS” (Jeremiah 23:6)."*
Man’s waywardness and pleasure-seeking predisposition have led him to develop a number of futile survival strategies. A saying such as ‘there are numerous routes to the market’ is used to justify illegal means rather than resourcefulness. The implication is that many think they can also access the Kingdom of heaven through multiple means.
With the spiritual problem of man however, this is not the case. The hydra-headed problem of sin does not have multiple options to solving it. This is one fact that the majority in the world are unfortunately ignorant of. The many religions in the world simply explain the attempts of man to reach God. But  the truth is, these ways lead nowhere. Man’s problem of sin has just one solution and that is, Jesus Christ.
In today’s text, we have the prophetic promise of the coming of the Redeemer and the Messiah – Jesus, the Righteous Branch. He is presented as the only Hope for the salvation and restoration of the nation of Israel. Though the Jews as a people are yet to accept and recognize Him as their Messiah, they will do this when the time comes.
Whether for the salvation and restoration of the Jews, or for the salvation of sinners any where in the world, Jesus Christ is the only Hope. For those who in their ignorance are seeking for salvation by other means, we give this clear and simple message - stop all your searching and turn to Jesus alone. He is the ONLY WAY to God. If you will come to Him now, you will find  salvation that you have been searching for.

TOPIC: A Worthy Sacrifice of Praise

"Wednesday 02, July 2014"

*TEXT:  PSALM 118:27-29*

*"Key verse: “God is the LORD, which hath showed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar” (Psalm 118:27)."*
Man has learnt to express his appreciation for kindness or favour received in different ways. For some, it is through a “Thank You” card, a text message or any other means by which they can thoroughly express how grateful they are. Towards the end of the year, we find people, corporate organizations, etc., sending out gifts, hampers and so on as a way of appreciating their numerous customers and stakeholders. These gift items are usually carefully chosen to match the personality to be given and equate the favour received.
Though this practice may have some selfish undertones as it is aimed at cementing relationships and securing future favours, and a form of marketing strategy and public relations, such kind gestures are well appreciated by those whom they are given.
The Psalmist in our text today calls us to consider what God has done for us and respond by binding our sacrifices on the altar. Many of us today have taken God’s goodness and mercies in our lives for granted that we do not care to express our thanks to Him in any form. We wake up each morning, go about our schedules, return home in the evening, and also go to bed at night without pausing, for once, to acknowledge and appreciate the mercies we have received. Apart from the daily mercies and goodness we enjoy from God, we are called upon to think about the special favour we have received from Him. He has shown us the light. So many people are still wallowing in deep darkness unable to find the light of salvation. How grateful we ought to be that we have the light and that we are saved!
As we think of all that God has done for us, is doing for us and will do for us, there is no better way to show how grateful we are than to make our lives living sacrifices bound with cords of consecration upon the altar of divine worship and service.
*"THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:   Match your praise with His mercy."*

TOPIC: His Rod Does Not Kill"

Thursday, July 03, 2014"

*TEXT: PSALM 118:15-26*

*"Key verse: “The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death” (Psalm 118:18)."*
Paying the price for acts of indiscretion is usually most painful. Many times therefore, people go to great lengths to cover their tracks and avoid being brought to account for their misdeeds, publicly. Yet, such a process of accountability has both a purifying and energizing impact on the person involved, especially if the chastisement is coming from the Lord.
The Psalmist had begun by taking stock of the mercies of God, even as he was also experiencing some rough times. He was conscious of the fact that the Lord will never altogether abandon the righteous. Troubles apart, he concluded that he would “not die, but live to declare the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living”. He was confident that the Lord would not allow him to so suffer as to die. Rather, he hoped that He would usher him through the gate of deliverance. There, he would praise the Lord for reversing his situation and circumstances. He would greatly appreciate God’s marvelous works; he would be glad and rejoice in the day that the Lord has made to bring him out of his troubles. Now full of confidence, he would plead with the Lord to save and shower prosperity on him. And as he prays, he is assured of blessings from the Lord.
Believers must face life’s troubles with courage. At such times, they are not to seek solace in self-pity or engage in trading blames. They must recognize that inherent in any trouble, is a vital purpose to be served. If God allows such troubles, He only wants to use them to make His children better, and prepare them for greater blessings in the future. Believers must be rest assured that no matter the severity of troubles, God will never abandon them. Where they have gone astray, and as a result are suffering for their actions, they must take steps to repent and return to the Lord, for then, He would willingly receive and abundantly pardon them.

TOPIC: Beware of False Prophets

"Friday, July 04, 2014"

*TEXT: JEREMIAH 23:9-22*

*"Key verse: “I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah” (Jeremiah 23:14)."*
The spread of apocalyptic literature purporting to tell us the exact dates of the rapture and the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ has taken on a frightening turn in our generation. None of the predictions made in the books by these “prophetic” authors has come to pass. And that is because they were made by those God did not send. They did not have the Bible as their source. The spread of apocalyptic literature purporting to tell us the exact dates of the rapture and the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ has taken on a frightening turn in our generation. None of the predictions made in the books by these “prophetic” authors has come to pass. And that is because they were made by those God did not send. They did not have the Bibl[size=8pt][/size]e as their source.
From the text before us, God condemned the priests and prophets of Israel for their profanity, adultery, swearing, lying, hypocrisy, and deception. He threatened to judge them. The people were exhorted not to hearken to them, nor accept their misleading promise of peace and safety; whereas the storm of God’s wrath would fall upon the head of the wicked. The Lord declared plainly that he had not sent these prophets. Their so-called prophesies were no other than dreams, and the deceits of their own hearts. So, the Lord declared Himself to be against these prophets, for stealing His word from their neighbours and using of His name to propagate their error with which they misled the people.
False prophets are chameleonic in appearance and character. Jesus says they will disguise to deceive others. Paul affirmed that false brethren among the Corinthian elders appeared as ‘angels of light’ or ‘messengers of righteousness’ (2 Corinthians 11:3,14,15). Jesus, our Lord and Master tells us that we shall know them by their fruits, not their leaves (Matthew 7:16).  By their ‘fruits’, He meant their character and conduct, the converts they produce, and the overall results of their ministry. So, do not join those who peddle error. Beware!

TOPIC: A Little Made Great

"Saturday, July 05, 2014"

*TEXT: JOSHUA 18:11-20*

*"KEY VERSE: “And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph” (Joshua 18:11). "*
Governor Stewart of Missouri, recognized that a convict he was about to pardon was once his steamboat mate under whom he served as cabin-boy. He said: “I want you to promise that you will never again take a stick of wood and drive a sick boy out of his berth on a stormy night, because some day that boy may be governor, and you may want him to pardon you for another crime. I was that boy. Here is your pardon.”
From our text, the tribe of that little boy, Benjamin (whose mother died after having him through a difficult labour) was given an enviable portion in the allocation of inheritance to the tribes of Israel. Benjamin, being the last tribe was called “Benoni” by his mother which signifies “the son of my sorrow”. He was so-called because his mother brought him forth in sorrow. But he got one of the best portions of land through the providential hand of the Almighty God. The land was very pleasant and fruitful because of the goodness of the soil. Thus, his sorrow was turned to joy.
It is a blessed thing that at moments when we are most cast down, neglected and despised, we are most lifted up by the consolations of the Spirit. One reason is, trials make more room for consolation. 
Great hearts can only be made by great troubles. The spade of trouble digs the reservoir of comfort deeper, and makes more room for consolation. Therefore, fret not over your heavy troubles, for they are the heralds of great mercies. Weeping may endure for a night, the Bible notes, but joy surely comes in the morning.

*TEXT:  PROVERBS 20:1-15*

*"Key verse: “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise”  (Proverbs 20:1). "*
A group of Dutch scientists, according to a research published in April 2009 in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, claim that people who drink half a glass of wine a day live four years longer than people who do not drink alcohol. Their claim is strange and misleading because it failed to highlight the statistics of untimely deaths caused by drunk drivers and suppressed the problem of addiction which has become the hallmark of alcoholism today.
Wine, as portrayed in our text has deceived many; it does not only overcome them before they are aware, it promises them certain pleasures which it does not give. Drunkenness results in pain and mockery and exposes people to reproach, disgrace and derision. Alcohol sets people to scoff at their companions and even to mock at religion, and all that is good and serious (Hosea 7:5). Strong drink not only disturbs the brain, it makes a man rage and quarrelsome. What he gets in return is woe, sorrow, and wounds (Proverbs 23:29).
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is an irreversible condition associated with consumption of alcohol by pregnant women. Each and every case of FAS is a needless tragedy. Victims suffer serious physical deformities and often mental deficiencies. And, they suffer these problems for their entire lives. Numerous other health problems are associated with alcohol consumption, which should be avoided. 
Many people find organized programmes very useful in helping them reduce their consumption to moderate levels. One of such best known programmes is Moderation Management. All these procedures are mere palliatives; they never obliterate altogether the peril of alcoholism. For those who need to quit drinking entirely, Jesus remains the only answer. His blood will miraculously deliver you from alcohol addiction more than any rehabilitation centre can do.

TOPIC: No One is Left Out!

TEXT: JOSHUA 19:1-9

Key verse: “Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them” (Joshua 19:9).

Equity and fairness are virtues that the world has little patience for. Many people believe in the survival of the fittest. They leave no room for the weak and helpless, but trample on the rights and aspirations of others in the pursuit of their selfish goals. They pay scant attention to the feelings of those hurt in the process, but congratulate themselves for succeeding where others have failed.

Joshua and the children of Israel had conquered a large part of the Promised Land. But now advanced in age, he was reminded that some tribes had not taken possession of their territories. Joshua was then mandated to divide the land for all the tribes. It was in this regard, that he apportioned the territory outlined in our text to the tribe of Simeon. God had earlier given to the tribe of Judah a very large territory, well suited for its large population. Now, He took stock of everything and saw that Judah had got more than its fair share, while other tribes had got nothing at all. To ensure equity and fairness, God directed Joshua to carve out a portion of the territory earlier given to Judah, and hand same to the tribe of Simeon as their inheritance. It would have been contrary to God’s equitable standards to give more to one tribe and none at all to another. Quite remarkably, there was no record that the tribe of Judah resisted Joshua’s attempt to enforce equity and fairness in the nation of Israel.

We too must never succumb to the temptation to be too self-protective, and therefore, act in selfishness. We must be fair in our dealings with all. We must seek and protect the interests of others. We must ensure that the good things the Lord has provided for His children or put under our care are evenly distributed to all as they have need. Those who have received more must be willing to share with those who have little or nothing. At all times, we must ensure that neither covetousness nor selfishness is allowed to influence our conducts and actions.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Let God’s goodness go round!

See Ephesians 5:18 and 1 Timothy 5:23

God Bless you brother,It does more harm than good from the natural scene without the biblical context we all know what is right and good for the body God knows best and that is why we dont really need to consume it directly cos its proportionally done in things we take naturally in some food and fruits and from that quote you wrote the bible says 'And be not drunk with wine, ......he was talking to the ephesians God from the initial state always warned not to take wine or strong drink (Lev10:9) because it did more harm than good and wrought more disgrace and dishonor in the life of man you can look at a man like Noah who went into drinking and did what was wrong in God`s sight For the strong drink they were to be poured unto the Lord those where the flammable ones not to be consumed (num 28:7) Overall look at important people in the bibile they are expected not to drink wine or strong drink so as to meet God`s demand in their life like samson so why dont we look at such example and imitate other than spotting out references we cant really lay hold on explanation why they did and what type of wine they took.
Your second scriptures you quote was to Timothy and he was ill with infirmity so wine was prescribed for that purpose and does that mean he never drank water too again? No just for the purpose of the illness wine was prescribed i wont say wine is bad but i will say it application and uses is what matters and mostly our intentions are very vital so i will strongly advice that we eat well and balance our diet there is a quantity of alcohol in food and fruit we eat that the body needs to function well and not depending on the extracted ones and taken raw but we are safe drinking non-alcoholic wine but note that too much of it is also a bad thing.
Finally if you desist from it you are right and have not sin and you`ve done yourself good other than to drink little and before you know it addiction sets in and becomes a threat to your life.
Thats my own opinion.
I was a drunk too before and took indian hemp but thank God he took all those from me miraculously i didnt know how it happened but i knew i wanted to live right for once and His grace was sufficient enough for me. So just trust him and surrender to him he will take it up from there

Okay, from what u're saying, it's best for one to desist from the intake of alcoholic drinks (wine) totally. What if I take alcoholic drinks once in a while (which ofcourse I do and I'm still not an addict), does dat mean I'm not on the right track?
Don't 4get, Jesus turned water to wine...

YES pls desist Heaven is too precious to use a bottle of alcohol to toil with and moreover there are non alcoholic wines if you need to take any that will nourish your body more or better still nothing like taking fruits. Turning water to wine by Jesus was not stated if it was Strong drink or wine not all wines are Alcoholic and Christ will not give snake for a fish or stone for a bread lets get to heaven first and we can ask Him all of that...
Finally there are no reasons or prescription behind your taking it once a while always make sure your intentions are right before you do things that how you can be at peace with your mind the Spirit is willing to tell you what to do just listen to him he will whisper into your ears.
I dont have authority to say do or do not. that is why we have our conscience so listen to your inner mind and once you have double mind just desist dont hardened your heart release it to the Spirit to minister to you.
I pray that the good Lord will bring to your heart the right thought and minister to you and lead you aright in Jesus name Amen.
God bless

TOPIC: The Inner Light

TEXT: PROVERBS 20:16-30

Key verse: “The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly” (Proverbs 20:27).

The Bible account of the creation of man is a wonderful insight into the mystery, majesty and power of God. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). Thus, the spirit of life was imparted into man, enabling him to conform to the image and likeness of the Most High.

God desires an enduring relationship. It was this desire that was at the root of the special privileges that our first parents, Adam and Eve enjoyed. Then this relationship was broken by the sin of disobedience and paradise was temporarily lost. But the Lord was not happy with the new state of things and He sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to be the propitiation of the sins of the whole world. We can also be purified through His sacrifice. “A new heart also will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and I will give you an heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 36:26).

This new spirit, which is through regeneration, gives him power to walk in His steps. It is the Spirit that enables him acknowledge and appreciate God’s presence. He hears God’s word, holds it and heeds it. And because he has this new consciousness, he no longer goes about as a tale bearer, neither does he accept the wages of deceit and fraud. When he is hurt, he will not think of retaliation knowing that vengeance is of the Lord. He will not lean on his own understanding conscious now that his “goings” are of the Lord.

The Spirit of God in us is a searchlight, a compass, guiding and directing us in the way to go. He never leads us into sin. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Romans 8:14). Does God’s Spirit lead you? The Spirit searches out all things. Let us renew the spirit within us so that our thoughts, actions and meditations will be pure before God.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: He who succumbs to the leading of the Spirit invariably prevails in all situations.

*TEXT:  JOSHUA 19:17-23*

*"Key verse: “This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Issachar according to their families, the cities and their villages” (Joshua 19:23)."*
In many parts of the world, acquisition of landed properties goes with a lot of troubles. In such places, sharing of commonly owned properties among brethren has been known to cause hard-to-pacify bitterness and even fierce fight. Not so with the heavenly-minded people who acknowledge their earthly possessions as God’s property and hold same with loose hands while setting their eyes on the “city ...whose builder and maker is God.”
The sharing of Canaan land among the tribes of Israel was characterized by fairness, love, tolerance and team spirit. It could not have been otherwise since it was conducted under the influence of divine providence. It was, however, not without struggle against the original occupants whom God wanted out of the land. Our text focuses on the inheritance of the tribe of Issachar. Notice that even though Issachar was elder to Zebulun, he latter got his lot before him. This was God’s providence at work and in keeping with the order of treatment by their patriarch, Jacob, when he blessed his children and predicted what should befall them in the latter days (Genesis 49:13,14).  God’s wisdom is much higher than we can easily comprehend.  
The tribe of Issachar was said to have been made up of valiant men of might in all their families, and in all their generations (1 Chronicles 7:1-5). Their record shows they were a laborious, hardy, valiant tribe, patient in labour antvd invincible in war. Many significant places are found in the land of Issachar, including, Jezreel, Shunem, River Kishon, the mountains of Gilboa and the valley of Megiddo.  
There is a better Promised Land which abides eternally in which only the ransomed have a share. By turning over your life to the Lord Jesus Christ through repentance, faith in Him and consistent righteous living, you can secure a personal portion there. It is in your interest to book a place there before it becomes everlastingly late.

TOPIC: In Church For What?

"Thursday, July 10, 2014"

*TEXT:  JEREMIAH 26:1-11*

*"Key verse: “Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD's house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD's house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word” (Jeremiah 26:2). "*
The majority of the churches and worship centres in our cities are usually packed full of worshippers each worship day. This gives a picture of people who seem to be very religious and have great delight in God and His words. There may appear to be no need to ask if these people really delight in God and are really committed to obeying His word. But a further probe reveals a startling truth! Many of these worshippers are not truly interested in what God has to say. Rather, they determine what they want to hear and what the preachers should say! And once the preachers deviate from preaching what suits them, they rebel. Sadly, many of the pastors and preachers play along with them, giving to the people what they want to hear and not what God commands them to preach. No wonder, we have so much shallowness and lack of righteousness in the lives and conducts of these worshippers. They are in the church but are not in touch with God.
God’s instruction to Jeremiah in our text was clear. He was to speak to the people who came to the house of the Lord to worship what He commanded him. One is surprised to observe the reactions of these professing worshippers. They turned down the word of God and turned in rage against Jeremiah.
We need to closely examine our motives for going to the house of the Lord. Do we really have delight in hearing the word of the Lord?  Or, do we tune off once the preacher announces a subject that seems not to go down well with us? Do we select what messages we want  to hear and dictate to  our preachers by our actions what messages they must preach to us? If we do, then we are in no way  different from the people in Jeremiah’s days. God expects every worshiper to obey His word and submit to His will without questioning. The only way to be happy in Jesus is to trust and obey.

TOPIC: A Well-Deserved Reward

"Friday, July 11, 2014"

*TEXT:  JOSHUA 19:40-51*

*"KEY VERSE: “When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them” (Joshua 19:49)."*
When God appoints a man and gives him an assignment, the responsibility is on the individual to reciprocate God’s good gesture by being faithful in carrying out the assignment and discharging his or her duty very well. It is only then that the individual becomes a beneficiary of the reward of faithful service.
In the narrative today, the Bible recounts the story of how the land of promise was divided after it was possessed under the leadership of Joshua. It shows how the tribe of Dan fought to increase their own portion and how Joshua, their faithful commander was rewarded according to the word of the Lord (verse 49,50).
As believers of today, we are not to be satisfied or complacent with the little portion of grace we have, service we are rendering, or in  fact, the little success we have. The Lord has promised to increase our greatness and reward us if we faithfully and valiantly fight the good fight of faith and dispossess the enemies of the inheritance that rightfully belongs to us.
Like Joshua, what God has spoken concerning your life will be fulfilled only if you faithfully fight and follow Him to the end. Joshua’s example is particularly instructive, worthy of emulation by all believers. He was single-minded in His devotion to Jehovah and in His loyalty to His leader Moses, throughout His years of services to him. At long last, Joshua triumphed through the wilderness and entered the Promised Land, led the people valiantly and got his deserved portion in the Promised Land. Faithfulness indeed counts and is rewardable.

TOPIC: The Day of God's Wrath

"Saturday, July 12, 2014

*TEXT: JEREMIAH 25:12-29*

*"Key verse: “For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it” (Jeremiah 25:15)."*
In the Scriptures, intoxicating wine is sometimes used to depict God’s anger and wrath against sin and all ungodliness. The effect of God’s righteous judgment would be similar to that of an intoxicating wine, destroying their sensibilities and herding them to eternal doom.
Here, in our text, Jeremiah had prophesied that God would repay sinful nations, with Babylon occupying a very prominent position, for their evil deeds. Judah’s years in Babylonian captivity seemed to have had little effect in their total obedience to God’s word. Rather, they sank deeper and deeper into sin and idolatrous worship: “For lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished, for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts” (verse 29).
Is it possible that the same message would be preached for the whole of twenty-three years, the same warning given and the same alarm raised from the roof tops about God’s hatred for sin and wickedness with its inescapable consequences, and the people be not moved? Can a people or a nation remain unrepentant and unperturbed for so long? Yes, so it was then with the nations of the world in Bible days, and so it is today.
At the moment, the anger of the Lord is still waxing strong against all ungodly individuals and nations. Although religious houses are springing up on every corner of the city, sin has assumed an alarming sophistication. Yet, God is watching and waiting. He has no pleasure in the sinner’s death. He requires you to repent of your sins and be reconciled unto Him. He paid the price by making the provision through His dear Son, Jesus Christ. Have you heard this message for twenty-three years, or more or less? the time to repent and to heed His call is now.
