Scripture reading: Luke 22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake [it], and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
We want to ponder upon the meaning of those words of Jesus: In remembrance of Me. On the surface, every person who is engaging in Christianity understands these words simply as “remembering that Jesus was on earth, that He died for me, and rose again.” But is that all that Jesus meant? What does Jesus really mean when, having broken the bread, He says, I want you to do this “in remembrance of Me”? It can’t hardly mean the surface understanding that is often taken from it; because as we see in the following scripture, there are people who remember Him alright, but whom Jesus totally disowns: Read the rest of this entry
Scripture reading: Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye [even] to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he [is] gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth [if] he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him…?
The message for these times is clearly delineated in the words of Revelation 14. Read the rest of this entry

Scripture reading: Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one]; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
We are before the God of the universe.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Read the rest of this entry

Scripture reading: Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
We want to focus on the very source of the relationships that we need to understand for the last days. In the beginning – God. That is the way the Bible starts. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. He created the heavenly host, all the angels, all the worlds, the cosmos, the stars and the planetarium of vast dimensions. If you look out into the stars you discover there is an immensity out there that is beyond human comprehension. God is the source of all that, but everything that is out there, and everything that is on the planet, is in relation to one another. Read the rest of this entry
