It’s The Last Thing He Said

June 24
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 24-26 / Acts 1

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Acts 1:7-8 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    When I was younger, at times my parents would tell me to do a few things while they were gone. If, and when they were not done, I remember hearing, “Why isn’t this done? Couldn’t you remember to do this? It was the last thing that I told you.” When they returned it also was the first thing that they inspected. It wasn’t that I didn’t remember, I was just putting it off.

    The last thing Jesus told us to do before ascending back to Heaven was to be a witness unto the uttermost parts of the earth. When he returns, I can imagine it will be the first thing that He inspects. I sure don’t want to hear Jesus say, “Why isn’t this done? Couldn’t you remember to do this? It was the last thing that I told you.”


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Are we busy doing what He asked?

Do It Again

June 23   
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 21-23 / John 21

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Jesus was crucified, placed in a tomb, rose from the dead, yet the disciples went back fishing. That’s what they did before and it was familiar to them. Then Jesus shows up and asks, “are you catching anything?” Not knowing it was Jesus they yell back, “No!” He says, “Cast on the right side of the ship.” They did and caught a net full. They immediately realized, it was Jesus. Why? Well that story is familiar. In Luke 5, when they first met Jesus He told them where to fish and they caught a boatload. Here He said, do it again.

    When Jesus tells us to fish for souls, we ought to listen. Just because we didn’t win someone one time, maybe Jesus is just saying, Do it again.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Are you still fishing for men as Jesus said to do?

That You Might Believe

June 22  
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 19-20 / John 20:19-31

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 20:30-31 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    In our passage today, Jesus says to Thomas in verse 27, “be not faithless, but believing.” Thomas then addresses Jesus as His Lord and God. By doing so, he was saying he accepted Jesus as his Lord, and Saviour, and as God. That’s what Jesus wanted for him, and for you and me. He says so in verse 29 when He says, “blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”

    Our verses today tell us Jesus did a lot more than we ever read about. Yet there’s enough in the pages of scripture for anyone who desires to be saved, to be able to believe in Christ. Jesus wants us to have a real life through His name.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  What more could we want
than what the Creator of all things could supply?

I Need To Know Where He Is

June 21 
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 17-18 / John 20:1-18

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 20:13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    In John 20:13 and 15 Mary is asked the same question. Once by angels in the tomb where Jesus had been, and once by Jesus Himself. “Why weepest thou?” To paraphrase her answer it was, “I don’t know where Jesus is.” She was heartbroken because she did not know exactly where He was.

    Oh how horrible it would be yet today if we did not know where our Saviour was. Many other religions have a theory of the demise of their spiritual leaders. However, we know exactly where Jesus is today. It says in Romans 8:34 “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.”


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  We know exactly where Jesus is today.
Isn’t that a comforting bit of wisdom?

Scripture Is Never Wrong

June 20   
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 15-16 / John 19:31-42

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 19:36-37 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    In every detail of Jesus’ life on earth, His death on the cross, His resurrection from the grave, and His ascension on high, scripture was never wrong. Not one detail was ever omitted, nor incorrect. From the way they parted His garments, to the fact that they did not break His bones, and even the piercing of His side. Every single detail happened exactly as was predicted.

    I wonder why people have a hard time believing that the rest of the bible will not come to pass as it’s written? He is coming back. It says so. It will be suddenly without notice. It’s written. He has built a home for those who love him. He said it. There is a place of eternal torment for those who will not believe. This is in there too.

Always Loving

June 19  
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 13-14 / John 19:1-30

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 19:26-27 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    On a cross of crucifixion, the agony was beyond understanding. Yet during this extreme torture and pain, Jesus looked from the cross to those He loved. He asked His mother to look to John as if He was her own son. He asked John to care for His mother as if she was his own mother. Jesus was always showing love to those whom he loved.

    Even farther off in the distance, Jesus looked and saw you and I. He gave to those who will believe in Him the Holy Spirit, to lead and guide us. He provided the church to nurture and care for us. He gave us His word to feed us. Jesus, was then, and always is, thinking about you and I.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Do we always think of Him?

What Is Truth?

June 18   
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 11-12 / John 18:19-40

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Jesus just told Pilate in John 18:37 “I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” Pilate asks, “What is truth?” With all the confusions about versions of scripture, multiple denominations, and varieties in worship, many people today are asking this same question. What is truth?

    My friend, don’t let the distraction of the world and religion confuse you as to what is real eternal truth. The truth is Jesus Christ. In John 14:6 Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” No matter what else is said or done, Jesus must be the central part of your Salvation. Jesus is our only Salvation. It’s not denominations, works of righteousness or anything else. The Truth is Jesus.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Do you know the TRUTH?

Whom Seek Ye?

Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 9-10 / John 18:1-18

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 18:4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    In John 18:4 Jesus asked those who came with Judas, “Whom Seek ye?” They told Him they were looking for a man from a place, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Then in verse 7, He asks again, “Whom seek Ye?” Why’d He ask again? Just what were they looking for?

    Were they seeking a criminal? These men and officers really didn’t know. He was accused, but was never convicted. Were they seeking a violent man? It says they brought weapons, however they didn’t really know why? Were they seeking a Saviour? They found the Saviour, but didn’t know it. Jesus wanted to know, whom they sought. Today if He asked you the same question, what would your answer be?


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  As you come to the throne of grace today,
Whom seek Ye?

The REAL Lord’s Prayer

June 16  
Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 7-8 / John 17

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 17:20-21 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Many have called Matthew 6:9-13 “The Lord’s Prayer.” However, that passage is really the Lord’s model of prayer. The best Lord’s Prayer is found in John 17. It’s there that we hear the word’s of the Lord as He pray’s to his Father over what has taken place, and the future of those whom He will leave behind.

    In John 17:20 He says; “Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;” Friend, way back then Jesus prayed for you! Are you one who believed on Christ because of God’s word shared by the Disciples? Then Jesus prayed for you. Furthermore, He’s still praying for you at the right hand of the Father. 


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Doesn’t it bring you joy today
to know JESUS is praying for you?

He Keeps His Promises

Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 5-6 / John 16:16-33

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

John 16:22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Jesus told the disciples; right now, you’re full of sorrow. Why were they sorrowful? It was because the world they lived in for several years following Christ was coming to an end. He’s talking of going away to another place with His Father. He told them they would lament or cry over His departure. It was a sad moment.

    Then He said, I will be gone, but I’m coming back again. That gave the disciples great hope. Guess what, He did come back just as He said. Well friends, He’s told us also that He’s gone to prepare a place for us and that He’s coming back again for us. We can know its true because He always keeps His promises. That should give you a great joy that no man can take from you
