Statues of saints or Mary

Monday, October 20th, 2003 at 12:00 am

When the Lord Jesus Christ took Peter, James, & John into the mountain and Moses and Elias appeared, Peter wanted to build 3 tabernacles: 1 for Jesus, 1 for Moses, & 1 for Elias.

Matthew 17:4 (KJV) Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

This act of Peter’s prompted the following response from God the Father:

Matthew 17:5 (KJV) While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Peter put Moses & Elias on the same level as the Lord Jesus Christ. God the Father responded by saying we should listen to Jesus. Statues of saints and Mary take the focus off of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It’s too cold and dark

Monday, October 20th, 2003 at 12:00 am

One Wednesday evening as I was driving home from church, I passed by a corn field and the farmer was out there in the darkness with the headlights on working to bring in his harvest. God used this picture to remind me of this verse:

Proverbs 20:4 (KJV) The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

Do you use the cold of winter or the darkness of night as an excuse to not work in your field which is white already to harvest? Do you neglect soul-winning when the cold temperatures come and the nightfall comes early? If so, is it any wonder that you are not bringing in much of a harvest?

Psalm 17:15 (KJV) As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

Psalm 71:20 (KJV) Thou, which hast showed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
