Wonderful, Counselor

Wonder, Counselor

Isaiah 9:6

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Who is this wonderful Man who entered the world 2,000 years ago? Some say a Prophet, some say a good man, others say He simply found enlightenment, and still others say He was an angel; but who do you say that He is? Your answer to that question will propel you into eternity; some to eternal damnation and others to eternal life.

Without a doubt, this Man split history in half, impacting the earth with colossal force. His words and miracles astounded people beyond measure. His coming sent shockwaves through history; tens of millions have died for His name, the wickedest of men have been transformed into saints, and an innumerable amount of people will enter the gates of heaven because of His sacrifice. Will you be one of them?

Truly He is more than wonderful; there are no words to describe His greatness. He is the King of all Kings, the infinitely wise Creator, and the Judge of all the earth; He is coming back to set up an everlasting kingdom, and even now He reigns in the heart of millions. Like a Father He will care for His people forever (Psalms 23:1), but will destroy His enemies with an everlasting fire (2 Thessalonians 1:7- 9). Oh won’t you run to His mercy today? Look to the cross dear reader, for His blood was shed for you! If you will only repent and believe, you will be saved (Acts 20:21; Acts 3:19; John 3:16). Seek Him today; I implore you, for tomorrow may never come!

With love in Jesus, Jonathan Ball

Sensitive to Religion- but Living like the Devil

Sensitive to Religion- but Living like the Devil

By A.W. Tozer

Luke 18:8

“… Nevertheless when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”

In our day you can find plenty of men and women in all walks of life who live like the devil while insisting that they are “sensitive” to religion!

If an evangelist sweeps through and the excitement gets big enough, they will go to the meeting and swell the crowd and contribute to the offering- and it will look big.

But here’s the catch: after it is all over, the moral standards of the community are right where they were before. I contend that whatever does not raise the moral standard and consciousness of the church or community has not been a revival from God.

The “god” that men believe in now, and to whom they are “sensitive,” is a kind of divine Pan with a pipe who plays lovely music while they dance, but he is not a God that makes any moral demands on them.

I still say that any revival that will come to a nation and leave people as much in love with money as they were before and as engrossed in human pleasure is a snare and a delusion!

True faith in God- not in any god, not in religion, but faith in the sovereign God who made heaven and earth and who will require men’s deeds- that is the God we must believe in, my friends. Believing in Him, we will seek to crucify our flesh and put on the new man which is renewed in holiness.

That kind of faith in God is all but gone. When the Son of Man cometh, will He find faith on the earth?
