The Model Sufferer

John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Every chapter in The Gospel of John portrays a special aspect of Jesus’s character. Chapter 18 is portrayed as the model sufferer. Jesus understood authority, when directly questioned by persons of authority he answered accordingly, but with those who were not of authority, He remained silent. I notice some attributes of Jesus (to say the least) leading up to this encounter. Jesus didn’t yell at Judas for betraying Him, instea

See what Happens, Under The Fig Tree

John 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see. I think this is one of the most misunderstood statements in the bible. Philip & Nathanael were probably best friends, excitedly Philip finds his best friend and tells him in a highly intelligent way that he has found the Messiah. Philip must have been in sales, he positions the need, Moses in the law, the written law proclaims a Messiah will come and the law must be fulfilled, then proposes the solution to the law

His Eye is on You

Luke 16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. Stewardship encompasses much more than just money, your family, your job, your ministry. I remember a story about a vice president of a very large company, who was next in line to be the president. The current president was retiring and was in favor of passing the torch to his successor. A day before the Board of Directors was about to vote the vice president and the current president went to lunch in the company’s cafeteria. While they were sliding their trays along the food buffet the president noticed that the vice president took a roll and then a litt

Modern Day Swords

2 Samuel 23: 9-10 And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men with David, when they defied the Philistines that were there gathered together to battle, and the men of Israel were gone away: He arose, and smote the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand clave unto the sword: and the LORD wrought a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to spoil. Eleazar was the second man in King David’s trilogy of the three mighty men. King David was a mighty leader, he believed God could do anything. David was renowned for his great exploits. He killed a Bear and Lion with his hands and Goliath with a slingshot. His greatness, his ex

Keep Crying

Isaiah 40:3-5 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. John The Baptist is one of my favorite prophets, this prophecy by Isaiah was probably about 686 years before the birth of John The Baptist. John had a mission, to tell people that the first advent of Christ was approaching. The symbolism attached to this prophecy is amazing. The wilde

God Loves to Give

Ecclesiastes 3:13 And also, that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God. & Proverbs 16:26 A laborer’s appetite works on his behalf, for his hunger drives him on. Do you ever just wake up in the morning and say, “Thank You, Jesus, for my great job!” I know I don’t, maybe I should start. But I have thanked God for my work throughout the day. Have you ever been told that your work doesn’t make you who you are? I’m sure there is some truth to that, but the truth is, especially for men, we tend to place a lot of our self-esteem in our work. For people that like to work rest is just not an option, they go stir crazy looking for something to do T

Lord Open Our Eyes

2Kings 6:14-16 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about. And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. The Man of God was called Elisha, and this massive army had come solely for him. Elisha was a prophet (still is) and a great one at that. Israel was at war with the King of Syria, every time the King of Syria would create a battle plan Elisha would forewarn the king of Is
