Today on the Matt Walsh Show, Roe is no more. In one of the greatest moments in American history, the Supreme Court decision which codified the right to murder babies has been finally and officially overturned. I'll have a lot to say about that today. Also, the Left continues to panic over the other great Supreme Court decision decided yesterday, this one affirming our right to carry firearms. Many very bad arguments have been made against that decision. We'll review some of them today. Meanwhile, Eric Adams in New York says that he will ignore the Supreme Court's decision and work to “undo” it. Is this an insurrection? Plus, Joe Biden accidentally shows off a note from his staff that shows just how bad his dementia has gotten.

It's In The Promise I Am Alive Season 5 Episode 10 Ephesians 2: 4-10 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. For by Grace we have been saved! Seven of the most powerful words ever penned. Today I shout with a loud and vibrant voice Thank You Jesus for GRACE! If it were not for Grace, I would not be alive today. I would have died in my sin and I would have died in my flesh, but because the Grace of God was there to pull me out when I did not know that I was down in the midst of a great pit, I am alive today! Hallelujah thank you Jesus! If it sounds like I am excited it is because I am. Apostle Paul reminds us of the person, the purpose and the power of Grace. Because of Grace we have been made to come alive with Christ. What does this mean for us? It means that we walk, talk, operate, and navigate with the power and presence of Christ in our life. As you navigate through you life remember that YOU are seated in heavenly places with Jesus Christ! Always remember who you are and in whom you believe. Because of the power of your belief you are save by GRACE. Thank you for being part of the #RiseAndGrindCrew! I am glad you are here.

In Psalm 57, as David runs and hides from Saul, he acknowledges that his only refuge is in God Most High. Knowing that to be true his repeated refrain is “Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!” In Psalm 58, David describes one way the LORD God's glory is displayed on earth. The God who judges the earth, the One who makes all things right, will receive blessing, honor and glory forever and ever. The bad news is that we live in an unjust world with lying, unjust, wicked rulers. The good news is that the LORD Jesus Christ will righteously judge that rebellion. The bad news is all of us have been and can be unjust, wicked liars who deserve righteous judgment. Hallelujah, Jesus is not only just but the justifier of the one who has faith in Him.

With family: Deuteronomy 22; Psalms 110–111 Deuteronomy 22 (Listen) Various Laws 22 “You shall not see your brother's ox or his sheep going astray and ignore them. You shall take them back to your brother. 2 And if he does not live near you and you do not know who he is, you shall bring it home to your house, and it shall stay with you until your brother seeks it. Then you shall restore it to him. 3 And you shall do the same with his donkey or with his garment, or with any lost thing of your brother's, which he loses and you find; you may not ignore it. 4 You shall not see your brother's donkey or his ox fallen down by the way and ignore them. You shall help him to lift them up again. 5 “A woman shall not wear a man's garment, nor shall a man put on a woman's cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God. 6 “If you come across a bird's nest in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs and the mother sitting on the young or on the eggs, you shall not take the mother with the young. 7 You shall let the mother go, but the young you may take for yourself, that it may go well with you, and that you may live long. 8 “When you build a new house, you shall make a parapet for your roof, that you may not bring the guilt of blood upon your house, if anyone should fall from it. 9 “You shall not sow your vineyard with two kinds of seed, lest the whole yield be forfeited,1 the crop that you have sown and the yield of the vineyard. 10 You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together. 11 You shall not wear cloth of wool and linen mixed together. 12 “You shall make yourself tassels on the four corners of the garment with which you cover yourself. Laws Concerning Sexual Immorality 13 “If any man takes a wife and goes in to her and then hates her 14 and accuses her of misconduct and brings a bad name upon her, saying, ‘I took this woman, and when I came near her, I did not find in her evidence of virginity,' 15 then the father of the young woman and her mother shall take and bring out the evidence of her virginity to the elders of the city in the gate. 16 And the father of the young woman shall say to the elders, ‘I gave my daughter to this man to marry, and he hates her; 17 and behold, he has accused her of misconduct, saying, “I did not find in your daughter evidence of virginity.” And yet this is the evidence of my daughter's virginity.' And they shall spread the cloak before the elders of the city. 18 Then the elders of that city shall take the man and whip2 him, 19 and they shall fine him a hundred shekels3 of silver and give them to the father of the young woman, because he has brought a bad name upon a virgin4 of Israel. And she shall be his wife. He may not divorce her all his days. 20 But if the thing is true, that evidence of virginity was not found in the young woman, 21 then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done an outrageous thing in Israel by whoring in her father's house. So you shall purge the evil from your midst. 22 “If a man is found lying with the wife of another man, both of them shall die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman. So you shall purge the evil from Israel. 23 “If there is a betrothed virgin, and a man meets her in the city and lies with her, 24 then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city, and you shall stone them to death with stones, the young woman because she did not cry for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbor's wife. So you shall purge the evil from your midst. 25 “But if in the open country a man meets a young woman who is betrothed, and the man seizes her and lies with her, then only the man who lay with her shall die. 26 But you shall do nothing to the young woman; she has committed no offense punishable by death. For this case is like that of a man attacking and murdering his neighbor, 27 because he met her in the open country, and though the betrothed young woman cried for help there was no one to rescue her. 28 “If a man meets a virgin who is not betrothed, and seizes her and lies with her, and they are found, 29 then the man who lay with her shall give to the father of the young woman fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he has violated her. He may not divorce her all his days. 5 30 “A man shall not take his father's wife, so that he does not uncover his father's nakedness.6 Footnotes [1] 22:9 Hebrew become holy [2] 22:18 Or discipline [3] 22:19 A shekel was about 2/5 ounce or 11 grams [4] 22:19 Or girl of marriageable age [5] 22:29 Ch 23:1 in Hebrew [6] 22:30 Hebrew uncover his father's skirt (ESV) Psalms 110–111 (Listen) Sit at My Right Hand A Psalm of David. 110   The LORD says to my Lord:    “Sit at my right hand,  until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2   The LORD sends forth from Zion    your mighty scepter.    Rule in the midst of your enemies!3   Your people will offer themselves freely    on the day of your power,1    in holy garments;2  from the womb of the morning,    the dew of your youth will be yours.34   The LORD has sworn    and will not change his mind,  “You are a priest forever    after the order of Melchizedek.” 5   The Lord is at your right hand;    he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.6   He will execute judgment among the nations,    filling them with corpses;  he will shatter chiefs4    over the wide earth.7   He will drink from the brook by the way;    therefore he will lift up his head.

Revelation 19 Isaiah 49 (Listen) The Servant of the Lord 49   Listen to me, O coastlands,    and give attention, you peoples from afar.  The LORD called me from the womb,    from the body of my mother he named my name.2   He made my mouth like a sharp sword;    in the shadow of his hand he hid me;  he made me a polished arrow;    in his quiver he hid me away.3   And he said to me, “You are my servant,    Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”14   But I said, “I have labored in vain;    I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;  yet surely my right is with the LORD,    and my recompense with my God.” 5   And now the LORD says,    he who formed me from the womb to be his servant,  to bring Jacob back to him;    and that Israel might be gathered to him—  for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD,    and my God has become my strength—6   he says:  “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant    to raise up the tribes of Jacob    and to bring back the preserved of Israel;  I will make you as a light for the nations,    that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.” 7   Thus says the LORD,    the Redeemer of Israel and his Holy One,  to one deeply despised, abhorred by the nation,    the servant of rulers:  “Kings shall see and arise;    princes, and they shall prostrate themselves;  because of the LORD, who is faithful,    the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.” The Restoration of Israel 8   Thus says the LORD:  “In a time of favor I have answered you;    in a day of salvation I have helped you;  I will keep you and give you    as a covenant to the people,  to establish the land,    to apportion the desolate heritages,9   saying to the prisoners, ‘Come out,'    to those who are in darkness, ‘Appear.'  They shall feed along the ways;    on all bare heights shall be their pasture;10   they shall not hunger or thirst,    neither scorching wind nor sun shall strike them,  for he who has pity on them will lead them,    and by springs of water will guide them.11   And I will make all my mountains a road,    and my highways shall be raised up.12   Behold, these shall come from afar,    and behold, these from the north and from the west,2    and these from the land of Syene.”3 13   Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth;    break forth, O mountains, into singing!  For the LORD has comforted his people    and will have compassion on his afflicted. 14   But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me;    my Lord has forgotten me.” 15   “Can a woman forget her nursing child,    that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb?  Even these may forget,    yet I will not forget you.16   Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;    your walls are continually before me.17   Your builders make haste;4    your destroyers and those who laid you waste go out from you.18   Lift up your eyes around and see;    they all gather, they come to you.  As I live, declares the LORD,    you shall put them all on as an ornament;    you shall bind them on as a bride does. 19   “Surely your waste and your desolate places    and your devastated land—  surely now you will be too narrow for your inhabitants,    and those who swallowed you up will be far away.20   The children of your bereavement    will yet say in your ears:  ‘The place is too narrow for me;    make room for me to dwell in.'21   Then you will say in your heart:    ‘Who has borne me these?  I was bereaved and barren,    exiled and put away,    but who has brought up these?  Behold, I was left alone;    from where have these come?'” 22   Thus says the Lord GOD:  “Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations,    and raise my signal to the peoples;  and they shall bring your sons in their arms,5    and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.23   Kings shall be your foster fathers,    and their queens your nursing mothers.  With their faces to the ground they shall bow down to you,    and lick the dust of your feet.  Then you will know that I am the LORD;    those who wait for me shall not be put to shame.” 24   Can the prey be taken from the mighty,    or the captives of a tyrant6 be rescued?25   For thus says the LORD:  “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken,    and the prey of the tyrant be rescued,  for I will contend with those who contend with you,    and I will save your children.26   I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh,    and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine.  Then all flesh shall know    that I am the LORD your Savior,    and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” Footnotes [1] 49:3 Or I will display my beauty [2] 49:12 Hebrew from the sea [3] 49:12 Dead Sea Scroll; Masoretic Text Sinim [4] 49:17 Dead Sea Scroll; Masoretic Text Your children make haste [5] 49:22 Hebrew in their bosom [6] 49:24 Dead Sea Scroll, Syriac, Vulgate (see also verse 25); Masoretic Text of a righteous man (ESV) Revelation 19 (Listen) Rejoicing in Heaven 19 After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out,   “Hallelujah!  Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,2     for his judgments are true and just;  for he has judged the great prostitute    who corrupted the earth with her immorality,  and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” 3 Once more they cried out,   “Hallelujah!  The smoke from her goes up forever and ever.” 4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who was seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” 5 And from the throne came a voice saying,   “Praise our God,    all you his servants,  you who fear him,    small and great.” The Marriage Supper of the Lamb 6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,   “Hallelujah!  For the Lord our God    the Almighty reigns.7   Let us rejoice and exult    and give him the glory,  for the marriage of the Lamb has come,    and his Bride has made herself ready;8   it was granted her to clothe herself    with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. 9 And the angel said

Blessings and Welcome!Join me in the reading and discussion of1 Corinthians Chapter 4:1-21.Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.15 For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?Thank you for tuning in.Glenda @ www.glendacoker.orgJ.mp/SisterG

Trinity Sunday First Psalm: Psalms 146–147 Psalms 146–147 (Listen) Put Not Your Trust in Princes 146   Praise the LORD!  Praise the LORD, O my soul!2   I will praise the LORD as long as I live;    I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. 3   Put not your trust in princes,    in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.4   When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;    on that very day his plans perish. 5   Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,    whose hope is in the LORD his God,6   who made heaven and earth,    the sea, and all that is in them,  who keeps faith forever;7     who executes justice for the oppressed,    who gives food to the hungry.   The LORD sets the prisoners free;8     the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.  The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;    the LORD loves the righteous.9   The LORD watches over the sojourners;    he upholds the widow and the fatherless,    but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 10   The LORD will reign forever,    your God, O Zion, to all generations.  Praise the LORD! He Heals the Brokenhearted 147   Praise the LORD!  For it is good to sing praises to our God;    for it is pleasant,1 and a song of praise is fitting.2   The LORD builds up Jerusalem;    he gathers the outcasts of Israel.3   He heals the brokenhearted    and binds up their wounds.4   He determines the number of the stars;    he gives to all of them their names.5   Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;    his understanding is beyond measure.6   The LORD lifts up the humble;2    he casts the wicked to the ground. 7   Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;    make melody to our God on the lyre!8   He covers the heavens with clouds;    he prepares rain for the earth;    he makes grass grow on the hills.9   He gives to the beasts their food,    and to the young ravens that cry.10   His delight is not in the strength of the horse,    nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,11   but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,    in those who hope in his steadfast love. 12   Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!    Praise your God, O Zion!13   For he strengthens the bars of your gates;    he blesses your children within you.14   He makes peace in your borders;    he fills you with the finest of the wheat.15   He sends out his command to the earth;    his word runs swiftly.16   He gives snow like wool;    he scatters frost like ashes.17   He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs;    who can stand before his cold?18   He sends out his word, and melts them;    he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.19   He declares his word to Jacob,    his statutes and rules3 to Israel.20   He has not dealt thus with any other nation;    they do not know his rules.4  Praise the LORD! Footnotes [1] 147:1 Or for he is beautiful [2] 147:6 Or afflicted [3] 147:19 Or and just decrees [4] 147:20 Or his just decrees (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalms 111–113 Psalms 111–113 (Listen) Great Are the Lord's Works 111   1 Praise the LORD!  I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart,    in the company of the upright, in the congregation.2   Great are the works of the LORD,    studied by all who delight in them.3   Full of splendor and majesty is his work,    and his righteousness endures forever.4   He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered;    the LORD is gracious and merciful.5   He provides food for those who fear him;    he remembers his covenant forever.6   He has shown his people the power of his works,    in giving them the inheritance of the nations.7   The works of his hands are faithful and just;    all his precepts are trustworthy;8   they are established forever and ever,    to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.9   He sent redemption to his people;    he has commanded his covenant forever.    Holy and awesome is his name!10   The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;    all those who practice it have a good understanding.    His praise endures forever! The Righteous Will Never Be Moved 112   2 Praise the LORD!  Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,    who greatly delights in his commandments!2   His offspring will be mighty in the land;    the generation of the upright will be blessed.3   Wealth and riches are in his house,    and his righteousness endures forever.4   Light dawns in the darkness for the upright;    he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.5   It is well with the man who deals generously and lends;    who conducts his affairs with justice.6   For the righteous will never be moved;    he will be remembered forever.7   He is not afraid of bad news;    his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.8   His heart is steady;3 he will not be afraid,    until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.9   He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor;    his righteousness endures forever;    his horn is exalted in honor.10   The wicked man sees it and is angry;    he gnashes his teeth and melts away;    the desire of the wicked will perish! Who Is like the Lord Our God? 113   Praise the LORD!  Praise, O servants of the LORD,    praise the name of the LORD! 2   Blessed be the name of the LORD    from this time forth and forevermore!3   From the rising of the sun to its setting,    the name of the LORD is to be praised! 4   The LORD is high above all nations,    and his glory above the heavens!5   Who is like the LORD our God,    who is seated on high,6   who looks far down    on the heavens and the earth?7   He raises the poor from the dust    and lifts the needy from the ash heap,8   to make them sit with princes,    with the princes of his people.9   He gives the barren woman a home,    making her the joyous mother of children.  Praise the LORD! Footnotes [1] 111:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each line beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet [2] 112:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each line beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet [3] 112:8 Or established (compare 111:8) (ESV) Old Testament: Job 38:1–11; Job 42:1–5 Job 38:1–11 (Listen) The Lord Answers Job 38 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: 2   “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?3   Dress for action1 like a man;    I will question you, and you make it known to me. 4   “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?    Tell me, if you have understanding.5   Who determined its measurements—surely you know!    Or who stretched the line upon it?6   On what were its bases sunk,    or who laid its cornerstone,7   when the morning stars sang together    and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8   “Or who shut in the sea with doors    when it burst out from the womb,9   when I made clouds its garment    and thick darkness its swaddling band,10   and prescribed limits for it    and set bars and doors,11   and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,    and here shall your proud waves be stayed'? Footnotes [1] 38:3 Hebrew Gird up your loins (ESV) Job 42:1–5 (Listen) Job's Confession and Repentance 42 Then Job answered the LORD and said: 2   “I know that you can do all things,    and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.3   ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?'  Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,    things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.4   ‘Hear, and I will speak;    I will question you, and you make it known to me.'5   I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,    but now my eye sees you; (ESV) New Testament: Revelation 19:4–16 Revelation 19:4–16 (Listen) 4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who was seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” 5 And from the throne came a voice saying,   “Praise our God,    all you his servants,  you who fear him,    small and great.” The Marriage Supper of the Lamb 6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,   “Hallelujah!  For the Lord our God    the Almighty reigns.7   Let us rejoice and exult    and give him the glory,  for the marriage of the Lamb has come,    and his Bride has made herself ready;8   it was granted her to clothe herself    with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. 9 And the angel said1 to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” 10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. The Rider on a White Horse 11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in2 blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule3 them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

I knew it the moment I saw it.My bike just looked a bit... off. It was sitting heavy in the bike rack at work. Everyone else's bikes sat bright and perky on puckered, plump, pressurised black rubber.There is just something so distinctly sad about a flat tyre.I started walking home with it. I moped up the hill, leading my bike like a handcuffed prisoner. Cyclists zipped past me in the bike lane, one after the other, fast and free, their high-vis vests snapping in the wind, home in no time! I kept on missing the traffic lights. Mope, mope, mope. Ten minutes from home, it started raining.I figured I must have got the flat on the way to work that morning. I couldn't remember riding over broken glass or thumb tacks or a discarded bucket of nails. Just one of those things, I figured. The Gods saw the weather forecast and thought uh huh! Here's an idea. A bit of sport. Let's make Jack's day just a little bit worse.It took me longer than it should have to change the tube. I've recently had to move my furniture around, and I emptied three large storage containers before I dug out my tyre levers. With two thirds of my worldly possessions arranged across the garage floor, I flipped my bike on its back. No sign of a nail. No thumb tacks. No sign of a gaping wound. I'm ashamed to say I took the easy way out and instead of finding the puncture and patching the hole, I just chucked in another tube. I pumped her up to sixty PSI and scoured the grease off my knuckles. Ride on.Nothing gets you down like a flat tyre in the rain. Except, maybe, for waking the next morning, packing your bags for work, scurrying down to the garage and discovering another flat tyre.Brilliant. For a moment I wondered if it was a non-violent protest by someone who just really hates cycle lanes. Since those eco-warriors are letting down the tyres on gas-gazzling SUVs, maybe some of the bike lane NIMBYs have been feeling inspired? As I walked to walk, it started to rain.The good thing about getting a flat tyre two days in a row is that the second time around, you're faster. You're better practised. You feel like a Formula One pit crew as you flip your bike on its back and see the familiar streak of black grease across your palm. Unfortunately for me, this theory only holds if you didn't somehow lose the only hex key that fits your cycle's axle bolt. I emptied three large storage containers and re-arranged half my worldly possessions across the garage floor before I found it.This time, I was really careful. I spun the wheel and scoured it for nails and pins. I ran my fingers all along the inside of the tyre and flicked out the tiny little bits of detritis that had gathered inside. I used my last bike tube and delicately arranged it around the outside of my rim, inflating it just a little bit to keep it inside the tire before sealing the rubber lips around the inside ring. I pumped it up, slow and steady. Sixty PSI. I wiped all the grease off my fingers and pushed off down the hill.The wind in my hair. The fresh winter air in my lungs! Hallelujah, I thought! I'm alive!There are certain moments in life that one becomes aware of a sinking feeling. In this case, it was a very literal sensation, not unlike gently lifting the lever to lower your office chair. I was perfectly located in the no man's land that marks the single-least convenient part of my entire commute to work. A few drops of rain began to plop on my backpack as I climbed down off my pedals. My back tyre sagged and folded around the rim like a belly spewing over a waistband.Bugger it, I figured. Tomorrow, I think I'll drive.

Day of Pentecost The Collect: Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. or this O God, who on this day taught the hearts of your faithful people by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit: Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things, and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. First Lesson: Acts 2:1–21 or Genesis 11:1–9 1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.3Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability. 5Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. 6And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each.7Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? 9Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11Cretans and Arabs—in our own languages we hear them speaking about God's deeds of power.” 12All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13But others sneered and said, “They are filled with new wine.” 14But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, “Men of Judea and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say. 15Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o'clock in the morning. 16No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: 17‘In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. 18Even upon my slaves, both men and women, in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.19And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist. 20The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the coming of the Lord's great and glorious day. 21Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.' or 1 Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. 2And as they migrated from the east, they came upon a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. 3And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar. 4Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” 5The Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which mortals had built. 6And the Lord said, “Look, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. 7Come, let us go down, and confuse their language there, so that they will not understand one another's speech.” 8So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.9Therefore it was called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth. Psalm: 104:25-35,37 25 O Lord, how manifold are your works! *         in wisdom you have made them all;         the earth is full of your creatures. 26 Yonder is the great and wide sea     with its living things too many to number, *         creatures both small and great. 27 There move the ships,     and there is that Leviathan, *         which you have made for the sport of it. 28 All of them look to you *         to give them their food in due season. 29 You give it to them; they gather it; *         you open your hand, and they are filled with good things. 30 You hide your face, and they are terrified; *         you take away their breath,         and they die and return to their dust. 31 You send forth your Spirit, and they are created; *         and so you renew the face of the earth. 32 May the glory of the Lord endure for ever; *         may the Lord rejoice in all his works. 33 He looks at the earth and it trembles; *         he touches the mountains and they smoke. 34 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; *         I will praise my God while I have my being. 35 May these words of mine please him; *         I will rejoice in the Lord. 37 Bless the Lord, O my soul. *         Hallelujah! Second Lesson: Romans 8:14-17 or Acts 2:1-21 14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. 15For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ—if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him. or 1When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.3Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability. 5Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. 6And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each.7Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? 9Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11Cretans and Arabs—in our own languages we hear them speaking about God's deeds of power.” 12All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13But others sneered and said, “They are filled with new wine.” 14But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, “Men of Judea and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say. 15Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o'clock in the morning. 16No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: 17‘In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. 18Even upon my slaves, both men and women, in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.19And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist. 20The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the coming of the Lord's great and glorious day. 21Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.' Gospel: John 14:8-17, (25-27) 8Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”9Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father'? 10Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.11Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves. 12Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. 13I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it. 15”If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.17This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you. [25”I have said these things to you while I am still with you. 26But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.]

BIBLE IN TEN

Tuesday, 7 June 2022   And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. Acts 8:2   The last verse spoke of the consequences of Stephen's stoning which noted that great persecution arose against the church and those of the church were “all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.” With that remembered, it now says, “And devout men.”   The word translated as “devout” is one that refers to being God-fearing, pious, and the like. It is used four times and each other instance refers to someone who is devout under the law –   “And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.” Luke 2:25   “And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.” Acts 2:5   “Then a certain Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good testimony with all the Jews who dwelt there, 13 came to me; and he stood and said to me, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight.' And at that same hour I looked up at him.” Acts 22:12, 13   It is true that any of these may have been a believer or become a believer, but their “devoutness” is in relation to the law. Further, as the previous verse specifically noted that those of the church were all scattered, Luke was surely making a point that it was men pious under the law that are being referred to now. It is a point of tenderness in an otherwise unhappy situation. From there, Luke next says that they “carried Stephen to his burial.”   Stephen means “crown.” At this point of the narrative, it is notable that despite being stoned for supposed blasphemy, he is the first recorded person in the new dispensation to receive the martyr's crown. Thus, his name now meets up with his reward.   The word translated as “carry,” sugkomizó, is found only here. It signifies “to bring together.” Vincent's Word Studies says, “Lit., to carry together; hence, either to assist in burying or, better, to bring the dead to the company (σύν) of the other dead. The word is used of bringing in harvest.”   Instead of simply leaving his body outside for beasts to eat, or chucking it into the valley of Hinnom (Gehenna), they removed it to a proper place. The words “to his burial” are inserted, but they surely reflect the appropriate idea. From there, it notes that they “made great lamentation over him.”   Again, it is a word found only here in the Bible, kopetos. It is a noun signifying “a beating of the breast or head while mourning.” It is an outward sign of working out an inner turmoil. Regardless as to whether these were believers or not, and the lack of calling them “brethren” points to them probably not being believers, the record is that an act of tenderness toward Stephen was carried out.   Life application: If you have traveled around the world or to various countries or states, you have surely met people who have been exceptionally pious towards “God.” This is, as far as their understanding of God goes.   Humanity has the ability to do wonderful things in the care of others regardless of race, culture, or any other such distinguishing factor. Quite often, this is done by acknowledging that it is their understanding that God is overseeing their actions and He will be pleased with them.   There is nothing wrong with this, and it dispels the Calvinistic thought that there are none who actually seek after God. The words Paul uses in Romans to indicate this come from Psalm 14:1 and Psalm 53:1. In both, the same general idea is presented, that of someone who is an atheist (or at least claiming to be one) –   “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.' They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.” Psalm 53:1   These people, of many cultures, religions, and so on, are really seeking out how to be pleasing to the God they know is out there. But the problem isn't with their attempts at doing good. Rather, the problem is the infection of sin in them. Until the sin can be dealt with, God cannot accept us. It is an impenetrable wall that is built up because of God's holiness and our fallen state.   This is what Christ came to remove. His death was a sacrificial death for sin. With the sin removed, then a propitious relationship can be restored. Good works, without dealing with the sin, cannot be considered “good” to God. And more, they can easily lead to a sense of supposed worth before God. “I have done my best.” “I am not as bad as other people.” And so on. God does not grade on a curve.   God's standard is absolute perfection. Until a person is perfected in Christ, they are not just fallen, but infinitely so. Christ Jesus! He is the answer. Remember the simple gospel and be ready to share it –   “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4   Each of the underlined points is given in relation to sin. He died for our sin. He was buried with our sin. He rose again without sin, meaning: He had no sin of His own (Romans 6:23) and thus He is God (Romans 3:23), and our sin is left behind in His burial. Sin is removed from the equation. With the entrance into the New Covenant through belief in Christ's work, sin is no longer imputed (2 Corinthians 5:19). Sin has been dealt with, and salvation is thus guaranteed.   Be confident in your own salvation, be ready to explain the sin problem to others, and then be ready to share with them the good news that God has now sealed them when they believe as well.   Lord God, if sin is the problem, and if Christ has dealt with the sin problem, then sin is no longer a problem. Restoration has come! Thank You, O God, for Jesus Christ, our atoning Sacrifice for sin. Hallelujah and Amen.

The Death That Opened Paradise Luke 23:26–43 Main Point of the Sermon: Jesus's death on the cross reopened paradise for all who come to him. Introduction Never in the history of the world has there been an event as significant as the one we just read about. Jesus died on the cross for our sins. It's one of the simplest summations of the Gospel. We've heard it so many times that we can grow callous to the thought. But this week I was freshly brought to my knees in worship as I rediscovered its significance for me and you today. What does it mean for us right now? What does it say about how God feels about us today? This is the question I want to try to answer. There are three sections to this text: 1) the road of grief 2) the crucifixion 3) and the promise of paradise. I want to show you that this road of grief and the crucifixion opened paradise for all who come to Jesus. But before we dive in, let's quickly be reminded of the context. Context Last week we saw Jesus tried before the Roman court and declared “innocent” before all. Yet because of the persistence of the Jewish leaders and the weak leadership of Pilate, he was punished and then sentenced to death. We know from the other Gospel accounts and from history that Pilate's punishment was a flogging by Roman soldiers, which meant he got 39 lashes. This was a gruesome punishment. The Romans used a whip called the “cat of nine tails” in which were tied pieces of stone that would bruise and tenderize the flesh, along with sharp pieces of bone and metal that would sink deeply into the flesh and cause it to tear as they pulled the whip back to strike again. It was enough to kill some of its victims. After taking such a beating, Jesus stood before his accusers exhausted and bloody, wearing a crown of thorns, as they shouted, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” Picture the scene for a moment. Pause. Finally, Pilate gave Jesus over to their desires. The Way of Grief 26 And as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus. Jesus traveled the Via Dolorosa, “the way of grief”. John's Gospel says that Jesus was led out, bearing his own cross (19:17), so it seems that he carried it until he could no longer. The Roman cross is estimated to have weighed somewhere between 165-300lbs depending on whether he carried the entire cross or just the cross-beam. This heavy and rough plank of wood was laid upon Jesus's fresh wounds as he made the half-mile trek out to Golgotha, where he would be crucified. Many speculate that Jesus, being weak from his flogging and blood loss, fell several times as he made the journey. Luke's account may be proof of that. He was emotionally and physically exhausted and with his body failing, the soldiers grabbed Simon of Cyrene and forced him to carry Jesus's cross. The details mentioned are significant for several reasons. Simon of Cyrene is probably mentioned by name because he would later become one of Jesus‘s followers known by many in the church. Mark 15:21 mentions that he was likely the father of two of Jesus's disciples. Luke wrote a historical account. This is proof that these things were seen and experienced by real people that at the time could have been interviewed to see if these things were so. Further, this seemingly coincidental encounter turned out to be a sign of great significance. Simon carried the cross following behind Jesus, reminding every Christian of the cross we are called to daily bear as we follow Jesus. This traumatic interruption to Simon's day was just the beginning of the rest of his life. Jesus told his disciples that following him would not be easy. It would cost them their lives (Lk 9:23). And it did. 27 And there followed him a great multitude of the people and of women who were mourning and lamenting for him. This was a great scene as many people followed behind Jesus mourning. A typical crucifixion might stir the people of Jerusalem to stop for a moment to notice the grievous moment, but it usually didn't draw this kind of crowd. Jesus, however, was the most loved and hated man in all of Israel. The text says that in the crowd were many women who were mourning and lamenting for Jesus. We don't know exactly who these women were but we learn from other Gospel accounts that contrary to most of his twelve disciples who had deserted him, some women, who were Jesus's closest disciples, family, and friends were near Jesus at the foot of the cross: Mary Magdalene,Mary the mother of James and Joses, the mother of the Sons of Zebedee and Jesus's mother among others (Mt 27:55-56; Jn 19:25). It's safe to assume that these were some of the women Luke is mentioning. But notice what Jesus says to them in response to their lamenting, 28 “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!' 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,' and to the hills, ‘Cover us.' 31 For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?” Only a few of Jesus's words are recorded up to the point of his death, but what he says is very important. Here, Jesus is alluding to Zechariah 12:10: “when they [the inhabitants of Jerusalem] look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him…” But Jesus turns the lament away from himself towards the people. He says, weep for yourselves and your children, not me. Why? Because of the days that are coming. Jesus prophesied in Luke 19:43 of the destruction coming on Jerusalem (c.f. 21:6, 22-24): 43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. 44 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you.” Here again, he remarks of the horrors of that day. In that day, the barren will be the one's called blessed because they don't have to watch their children suffer. It will be so brutal that the people will long for the mountains and hills crush them and put them out of their misery. In verse 31, Jesus essentially says, if you think this moment is horrific, “when the wood is green,” that is when an innocent man is allowed to be condemned to death, consider how great the evil will be “when the wood is dry,” that is, when God allows wicked Rome's wrath to be released on Jerusalem in full force. Why should they weep for themselves? Because God's wrath would soon be poured out on them because of their rejection of his son, Jesus. Tim Keller helpfully explains: Jesus is saying…”You see me going to my death, and you don't understand that you, too, are in the same boat. You don't understand that you, too, as it were, are dead men walking. You don't understand judgment hangs over you. You don't understand someday everyone will stand before the face of the throne, and if you're not ready on that day, the mountains and the hills will fall on you.”This is Jesus talking about judgment day, looking at them and saying, “Until you weep for yourselves, you can't weep for me right. Until you understand what's wrong with you, until you understand your own danger, until you understand you're under sentence and you're under condemnation and that every person is, you don't understand what I'm really about or what I'm doing. Until you weep for yourselves, you can't weep for me properly.” Even as Jesus is bleeding out, he is grieved for his people who will die in their sins. He had come for their rescue, but so many would reject God's day of salvation. Let's keep going. Verse 32 tells us another important detail: 32 Two others, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him. With this detail, Luke brings to mind Isaiah 53:12, which tells of the Suffering Servant, “he was numbered with the transgressors.” Luke wants us to see that Jesus's death is fulfillment of the Scriptures and God's plan of salvation. We'll see more evidence of this as we look now at the crucifixion. The Crucifixion 33 And when they came to the place that is called The Skull [or Golgatha, a hill shaped like a skull]there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. 34 And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” There they crucified him. Such a simple phrase does not do justice to the horrors of this death. Crucifixion was invented by the Persians around 300 B.C. and perfected by the Romans around the time of Christ. It is quite possibly the most painful death ever invented by man and is where we get our word excruciating from. It killed its victims through suffocation, loss of body fluids, and multiple organ failure. One scientific article explains in more detail how crucifixion killed someone: Someone nailed to a crucifix with their arms stretched out on either side could expect to live for no more than 24 hours. Seven-inch nails would be driven through the wrists so that the bones there could support the body's weight. The nail would sever the median nerve, which not only caused immense pain but would have paralyzed the victim's hands. The feet were nailed to the upright part of the crucifix, so that the knees were bent at around 45 degrees. To speed death, executioners would often break the legs of their victims to give no chance of using their thigh muscles as support. It was probably unnecessary, as their strength would not have lasted more than a few minutes even if they were unharmed. Once the legs gave out, the weight would be transferred to the arms, gradually dragging the shoulders from their sockets. The elbows and wrists would follow a few minutes later; by now, the arms would be six or seven inches longer. The victim would have no choice but to bear his weight on his chest. He would immediately have trouble breathing as the weight caused the rib cage to lift up and force him into an almost perpetual state of inhalation. Suffocation would usually follow, but the relief of death could also arrive in other ways. "The resultant lack of oxygen in the blood would cause damage to tissues and blood vessels, allowing fluid to diffuse out of the blood into tissues, including the lungs and the sac around the heart," says Ward. This would make the lungs stiffer and make breathing even more difficult, and the pressure around the heart would impair its pumping.[1] Our innocent Lord endured all this, and as he is suffering, he looks around him and says, “curse you wicked men!” No… He says, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” What kind of man can be mocked and beaten and killed unjustly and yet respond with blessing and prayer for his enemies? Again, this is fulfillment of Isaiah 53:12 “He makes intercession for the transgressors. When I read this plea for forgiveness this week again for the hundredth time, I stopped in utter amazement, and could not help but shout, “Who is this man? What kind of man does that? There is truly no one like Jesus.” Again, what is your instinct when others mock you or injure you. Are we not quick to retaliate and curse them? But Jesus responds with grace immeasurable. He calls out to God the Father in this moment, pleading on his murderers behalf, “forgive them.” Don't hold this against them. They don't understand what they are doing. In pleading for their forgiveness, he is asking God to release them from the penalty they deserve for these sins. These were not empty prayers he was praying. Jesus actually had authority to provide forgiveness by virtue of his sacrifice. His sacrifice made forgiveness possible. God could forgive his enemies and not require death because Jesus was dying in the place of anyone who would repent and cling to him. Were told that “they cast lots to divide his garments.” (v. 34). This is another fulfillment of a famous Messianic Scripture, Psalm 22. Verse 18 says, “They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.” They had stripped him to the point that he was either naked or barely clothed, and they played dice to see who would get his clothes, since he was about to die. Jesus hung their naked, suffering, and struggling to breathe, and the mocking continued. 35 And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers [that is the Jewish religious leaders] scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!” 36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine 37 and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!” 38 There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Jews.” Both the Jewish leaders and the Roman soldiers mocked Jesus by challenging his power and authority as King, which was the charge posted above him for all to see. Their words are strikingly similar to Satan's, who challenged him at the beginning of his ministry, “If you are the Son of God, then make bread... throw yourself down” One by one they mocked him, using various Messianic titles. Verse 31 says that they offered him sour wine, which was not an act of compassion but just another slap in the face. One Bible teacher says that it may have been offered on a sponge used for personal bathroom sanitation. Either way, quenching his thirst with this cheap drink was a form of mockery and would have only prolonged his suffering. They didn't know it, as we do now, but Jesus could have hit abort at any minute. He could have hit abort when Satan offered him a way out at his temptation. He could have hit abort when many tried to take his life in his short three year ministry. He could have hit abort when he was in the garden of Gethsemane. He had the authority to come down off the cross with legions of Angels at his back and slay all of his enemies. But he didn't. He stayed. He gave his life, like he says in John 10:18, “No one takes [my life] from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again.” Jesus gave his life willingly in obedience to his Father. This was all accomplishing a divine purpose bigger than anyone could understand. They thought that his death was proof that he was not the Messiah, but it was only proving that he was. Because he stayed on the cross, he could offer salvation to all who would come to him, which is what we are about to see in the promise of paradise. The Promise of Paradise 39 One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!” Even the criminals hanging next to him begin mocking Jesus and his identity. “Save yourself, and us too while you're at it!” 40 But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” These verses are unique to Luke, and I'm so glad that he recorded this event. The second criminal rebukes the first, recognizing that they are about to meet their Maker, and that they were justly receiving the death sentence. On the contrary, “this man has done nothing wrong.” We don't know what this criminal knew about Jesus, but one thing became clear to the man as he watched Jesus suffer alongside him – this man was innocent. But then the criminal turns his attention to Jesus. 42 And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Rather than mocking his ability to save, the criminal pleas for salvation. This request is both a confession of faith that Jesus is the King who will soon enter his kingdom and a plea for mercy before his judge. This moment is a final snapshot of the sad reality that Luke has unfolded: the first will be last and last will be first. It is the poor, the sinful – like the Prodigal Son ­– who recognize their need for mercy. But it is the religious who, like the Older Brother in the Prodigal story, proudly reject Jesus. 43 And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” What is paradise? Our Jesus says he was going there. He was about to enter his kingdom. Contrary to what some theologians have claimed, Jesus was not headed to hell for three days, but through death, he would soon enter his glory before rising again bodily three days later. This word paradise is used in the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Old Testament, to translate the Hebrew word for garden. It's referencing Heaven, the restored garden of Eden, where the righteous dwell with God. Jesus tells the dying criminal, “truly, today” you will be with me there. You can be confident that I will rescue you and bring you into paradise. In saying “today” you will be saved, Jesus was making a pronouncement as the judge of the living and the dead of the man's salvation. The crowds had put Jesus on trial and condemned him to death, but even as he breathes some of his last breaths Jesus shows us that he has the keys of paradise, he has authority to save and welcome repentant sinners into heaven through faith in him. Even while Jesus was dying a gruesome death, he was paving the way to heaven. Through his death he was inaugurating a new period of salvation.[2] This is why Jesus stayed on the cross! It was for this moment that he had come. So that anyone who hopes in him like this criminal could be confident that Jesus would welcome them into paradise. Hebrews 12:2 says, “For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Jesus could have hit abort, but he endured because of the joy he would experience through all that it accomplished. Namely, needy sinners would be rescued and brought into his eternal kingdom. Jesus endured the cross with this picture in mind. He had a picture of himself seated on the throne next to the father, with each and every one of us, once clothed in rags of shame, transformed into his holy bride, clothed in robes of white and standing by his side. This is Good News! This is our Jesus! What kind of man weeps over others as he goes to his death? What kind of man says, “Father, forgive them,” to his enemies? What kind of king invites a wicked and guilty man into paradise? All made possible by his death! Who is this man? He is our king. He is matchless. And he is the perfect image of our God. Oh friends, if you want to know what God is like, if you want to know what he feels towards you right now, look at Jesus hanging on the cross. I know, we cannot comprehend why God would allow suffering in this world. We cannot comprehend why evil is done to us and to those we love. But how can we question our God's love and compassion when he steps into our suffering like this? The sin that wreaks havoc on the world, and in our souls, he bore on the cross. All of our sickness, our sorrows, all of our wounds, our pain, what has been done against us, and what we have done to others, he took it on himself. He absorbed it. Every sin, past and present, so that he could welcome us into paradise. How can we question our God‘s love, and if he has good intentions for us? How can we ever wonder if he cares? How could we ever wonder if he knows what ouor suffering is like? My desire today is that all of us here today would put our faith in this Jesus, who alone has the keys of paradise. I want you to confess again, or for the first time, that Jesus is your king and Lord. And I want you to be confident today, that if you do, you will surely be with Jesus in paradise when you die or when he comes again. How can a holy God welcome this wicked criminal into heaven? How can a holy God welcome you and I into heaven? It's certainly not because of a list of good you've done that outweighs the bad. No, it was simple faith in this Jesus, just like it was for the criminal. It's because of God's great love and mercy. Our Jesus willingly took our place, carrying every single sin to calvary on the road of grief. It was nailed to the cross and carried away to the grave forever. The power of sin and death is broken, so that God can declare you righteous in Christ and welcome you into his eternal paradise. Just remember, Jesus is not dead. Just as he promised, Jesus rose three days later, and was exalted to the right hand of God, proving that he has the power to do what he says. It was all according to the plan laid out in this book.

During an October vacation, another battle with chronic pain forced me to spend the first few days recovering in our room. My mood became as overcast as the sky. When I finally ventured out to enjoy sightseeing at a nearby lighthouse with my husband, gray clouds blocked much of our view. Still, I snapped a few photos of the shadowy mountains and dull horizon. Later, disappointed because a downpour tucked us in for the night, I skimmed through our digital pictures. Gasping, I handed my husband the camera. “A rainbow!” Focused on the gloominess earlier, I’d missed out on God refreshing my weary spirit with the unexpected glimpse of hope (Genesis 9:13–15). Physical or emotional suffering can often drag us down into the depths of despair. Desperate for refreshment, we thirst for reminders of God’s constant presence and infinite power (Psalm 42:1–3). As we recall the countless times our Lord has come through for us and for others in the past, we can trust our hope is secured in Him no matter how downcast we feel in the moment (vv. 4–5). When bad attitudes or difficult circumstances dim our vision, God invites us to call on Him, read His Word, and trust His faithfulness (vv. 7–11). As we seek the Lord, we can rely on Him to help us spot rainbows of hope arched over the darkest days. Hallelujah!

The lifeguards were in a boat and they were still 25 to 30 ft. away to come rescue them...." he added, "You can be atheist, you can have no faith but my faith will always be my guide as I do believe in angels and our Lord!"Hallelujah.

Today in the Word Devotional

My family has a tradition at dinner time. We normally sing the Doxology as a prayer before we eat, “Praise God from whom all blessings flow.” This is a special and appropriate way to end each day, praising God and reminding each other of how He provides for us. In a similar way, the Book of Psalms ends with a rousing call to praise. In Psalm 150, the Psalmist commands the congregation to “Praise the Lord” twelve times! Normally, praise psalms not only call people to praise God but also provide reasons to do so. Psalm 150 is unusual in this regard. It does not give any reasons to praise God. Perhaps this is because in the concluding psalm, the Psalmist knows that reasons galore have already been provided throughout the Psalter. We have come a long way since our journey through the Psalter began. We know that life is not always easy. There have been many laments in this book which describe the problem of enemies, sickness, sin, and turmoil. However, throughout the Psalms we see the stabilizing presence of God. He is the one who created us, cares for us, hears our prayer, and works for our salvation. It is appropriate then to be reminded of all that God has done and will do at the end of this book. In some ways, this ending foreshadows the ending of the Bible in Revelation. After all the trials and tribulations that the people of God will go through, Revelation also ends on a rousing note of praise, “Hallelujah! For the Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!” (Rev. 19:6–7). >> When we praise God today, we not only recount all that He has done for us in Christ but also look forward to His Second Coming when all things will be made new. Revelation reminds us, “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus” (Rev. 22:20). Hallelujah indeed!

One of the best-known choral works in the western world is Handel’s Messiah. Early in its history, a curious custom developed. The audience would stand for the “Hallelujah Chorus,” sung at the end of the second movement. Popular tradition holds that this practice originated during the London premier when King George II stood during this song, requiring everyone else to do so as well. Psalms 146–150 begin and end with the Hebrew phrase “Hallelujah,” translated as “Praise the LORD.” You might say that these last five psalms are the “Hallelujah Chorus” of the Psalter. In today’s reading, verses 2–3 demonstrate an important truth. After declaring to “praise the LORD all of my life,” the Psalmist then warns Israel to “not put your trust in princes.” There is a big contrast here between trusting in God, the King of kings, and trusting in earthly rulers. When we praise God, it helps to center us and remind us where our true hope lies. Our allegiance is not primarily to things of this world. We are people “whose hope is in the LORD their God” (v. 5). In the second half of the psalm, the Psalmist recounts several attributes of God as reasons to praise Him. He reminds us that God cares deeply about the oppressed, the poor, prisoners, the blind, orphans, and widows (vv. 7–9). Not only does this remind us of how compassionate God is, but it also serves as a model for us to follow. If God cares for these vulnerable people, we should as well. Praising God should inspire us to acts of compassion and mercy. >> We have been given a model of compassion and mercy in Jesus! The Son of God and Messiah of Israel spent much of His life preaching good news to the poor, feeding the hungry, healing the sick, and showing compassion on the lowly (Luke 4:16–21). How can we follow in His footsteps?

Fifth Sunday of Easter The Collect: Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. First Lesson: Acts 11:1-18 1Now the apostles and the believers who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also accepted the word of God. 2So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him, 3saying, “Why did you go to uncircumcised men and eat with them?” 4Then Peter began to explain it to them, step by step, saying, 5“I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision. There was something like a large sheet coming down from heaven, being lowered by its four corners; and it came close to me. 6As I looked at it closely I saw four-footed animals, beasts of prey, reptiles, and birds of the air. 7I also heard a voice saying to me, ‘Get up, Peter; kill and eat.' 8But I replied, ‘By no means, Lord; for nothing profane or unclean has ever entered my mouth.' 9But a second time the voice answered from heaven, ‘What God has made clean, you must not call profane.' 10This happened three times; then everything was pulled up again to heaven. 11At that very moment three men, sent to me from Caesarea, arrived at the house where we were. 12The Spirit told me to go with them and not to make a distinction between them and us. These six brothers also accompanied me, and we entered the man's house. 13He told us how he had seen the angel standing in his house and saying, ‘Send to Joppa and bring Simon, who is called Peter; 14he will give you a message by which you and your entire household will be saved.' 15And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them just as it had upon us at the beginning. 16And I remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said, ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.' 17If then God gave them the same gift that he gave us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could hinder God?” 18When they heard this, they were silenced. And they praised God, saying, “Then God has given even to the Gentiles the repentance that leads to life.” Psalm: Psalm 148 1 Hallelujah!    Praise the Lord from the heavens; *        praise him in the heights. 2 Praise him, all you angels of his; *        praise him, all his host. 3 Praise him, sun and moon; *        praise him, all you shining stars. 4 Praise him, heaven of heavens, *        and you waters above the heavens. 5 Let them praise the Name of the Lord; *        for he commanded, and they were created. 6 He made them stand fast for ever and ever; *        he gave them a law which shall not pass away. 7 Praise the Lord from the earth, *        you sea-monsters and all deeps; 8 Fire and hail, snow and fog, *        tempestuous wind, doing his will; 9 Mountains and all hills, *        fruit trees and all cedars; 10 Wild beasts and all cattle, *        creeping things and winged birds; 11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, *        princes and all rulers of the world; 12 Young men and maidens, *        old and young together. 13 Let them praise the Name of the Lord, *        for his Name only is exalted,        his splendor is over earth and heaven. 14 He has raised up strength for his people    and praise for all his loyal servants, *        the children of Israel, a people who are near him.        Hallelujah!

PROTECT YOUR HEART WITH GOD'S TRUTH

PROTECT YOUR HEART WITH GOD'S TRUTH My child, listen and be wise. Keep your heart on the right course (Proverbs 23:19 NLT). There're things that some people do that invite demons into their lives without them knowing. They yield themselves to the influence of demons through certain kinds of music, dance, among several other things. For example, Christians who visit pornographic websites open themselves to demons. In the Old Testament, God forbade His children from looking at the nakedness of others (Read Leviticus 18). Such things aren't acceptable to God. They're not consistent with the life of righteousness. Think about it: How does Christ come into the heart of a man? When you believe in Jesus Christ and confess His lordship, He comes into your heart in an instant. That's the same way a man can open his heart to demons when he exposes himself to things that are inspired by demons. Protect and keep yourself from all unrighteousness. The Bible says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18). Refuse to harbour unclean thoughts. Use the Word to purify your heart of anger, bitterness and malice. The Word of God is a cleanser. As you meditate on the Word, you're cleansed from ALL unrighteousness: “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you” (John 15:3). Live as a Christian. Our theme verse says to keep your heart on the right course, on God's truth. Protect your mind and spirit with the Word. In Proverbs 23:26 (NIV), God says, “My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways.” Let your heart delight in His Word, in His righteousness, and live a life worthy of Him—pleasing Him in every way. Hallelujah! CONFESSION Satan, the god of this world, has nothing in me! The Lord has given me dominion over the flesh, to guard my heart and mind with all diligence. No unwholesome thought can take root in my heart. My spirit, my mind and my body are yielded to the Word and purified by the Word every day, in Jesus' Name. Amen. FURTHER STUDY: || 1 John 2:16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. || || Psalm 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. || || Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life. || DAILY SCRIPTURE READING 1-Year Bible Reading Plan=> John 8:48-59 & 2 Kings 1-3 2-Year Bible Reading Plan=> 1 Corinthians 10:22-33 & Proverbs 15

WE LIVE IN HIS PRESENCE Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you (John 14:17). In Christianity, we don't go in and out of God's presence. His presence is our home; we were born therein. When you study Psalm 87:4, you'd observe the prophetic reference: “I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there.” “This man” refers to the new creation. “There” refers to our place in Christ—our place in God's presence. This is the reason it's an absurdity when a Christian says, “Father, I come to you today”; or “Let's get into the presence of God through worship.” I often wonder: if they're about to get into the presence of God, where then have they been? God's children must understand that we live in His presence. There's no such thing in the New Testament as us “getting into” the presence of God. In Him we live and move and have our being. His presence is in us and with us. When you come into a place, you come with His presence. If you're born again, nobody can take you into the presence of God, because you were born right into His presence, and you live in His presence, both legally and vitally. Hallelujah! CONFESSION I'm the temple of the living God; He dwells in me by the Holy Spirit. Christ has taken up His abode in me and I'm forever in Him. I live in His presence and I carry that divine presence everywhere to impact my world, in Jesus' Name. Amen. FURTHER STUDY: Acts 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? Colossians 1:26-27 [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: DAILY SCRIPTURE READING 1-Year Bible Reading Plan John 9:1-41 & 2 Kings 4-5 2-Year Bible Reading Plan 1 Corinthians 11:1-11 & Proverbs 16

PRAYING FOR OUR EVANGELICAL WORK In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them (2 Corinthians 4:4). The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 9:37, “…The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few.” The harvest He's referring to is the souls of men, the world of sinners. The labourers are those who are reaching out with the Gospel to win these lost souls to Christ. That's why we have to pray and intercede for the harvest field, for the souls of men that we intend to reach within and beyond our catchments, because the harvest is ripe. Prayer is our number one requirement in our evangelical work. As we intercede for them, we're to prophesy by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Our prophetic prayer is how we pour out righteousness and salvation on the nations. Set times for prayer, either as an individual, family, group or as a Church. Plan and map out definite prayer times for your evangelical work. If we would pray correctly and effectively as He has asked us to, our preaching will be effective. In some cases, you wouldn't even have to preach much or preach at all before sinners start crying out to the Lord for salvation. Through prayer—particularly praying in the Spirit—you pour forth gushers of living water (John 7:38). Your words become so effective just like Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:4: “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.” Then you find that through you, the heavens constantly rain down righteousness, and salvation is springing up everywhere.
