A Friday Prayer and Message!

Friday, April 08, 2011

A Glorious Greeting To All SP Members! To those of you who have responded to previous messages and prayers.....THANK YOU for your wonderful comments. Give God the glory!

PRAYER: Holy Father, Just God! Teach us to listen! Help us to become good listeners to your voice and your Word. Speak directly to our hearts. Help us not to allow the noises and business of life to drown out your voice. Help us to take every thought captive in obedience by faith to your Word. Keep us from entertaining unrighteous thoughts. Enable us to be diligent in listening to your words, in understanding your instructions, and in following them. Train our minds to glorify You in everything we think, say and do. This we pray in the Blessed name of Jesus our Savior, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Accuracy of the Bible in Science!
1. Ps 8:8 - Teaches us that there are paths for everything.
a. Man knew of no path in the sea until Matthew Maury read this verse.
b. He searched till he discovered the ocean currents.
c. He is known as the Father of Oceanography.
d. And what about the jet streams in the air?
2. Eccl 1:7 - Teaches us about the path of rivers.
a. Rivers run to the sea, yet, the sea never gets fuller.
b. Rivers that run to the sea return to where they came from.
c. Today, we know this as water cycle and evaporation.
d. How did Solomom know this? He learned it from God.
3. What do you think about this? If everything has a path (and it does), why doesn't man follow the path God has created and provided for him/her? The Bible has been repeatedly proved accurate. Those who criticize the Bible have been consistently unable to disprove it.
A New Study will begin Monday!

May God Bless us today by strengthening our understanding and faith. In His knowledge and Wisdom, Vic.

    A lot of times man can't see the path because he's not listening to God's message. It get's drowned out by all of the other noises that keep him from really hearing. Thanks for the message.

    I agree with Shassysue2. How can anyone look at the beauty of nature and not realize that there is a God, never mind how awesome God is!
Lord, open the ears, hearts, and minds of those who do not know believe.

Thank you for your insight, Vic.
Have a great day!

A Thursday Prayer and Message!

Thursday, April 07, 2011

Goooooooooooood Afternoon SP Members! Sorry I'm late getting today's prayer and message out. My computer went down this morning and it took time to fix it. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Loving God! You have plans for each and everyone of us, plans to prosper us and not to harm, plans to give us hope and a future. We thank You that Your plans for us are good. Help us to obey You in every area of our life so we do not do anything to thwart Your plans for our future. We seek You about our future and ask You to help us hear Your instructions as You lead us every step of the way. We give You all praise, all glory and honor. This we pray in the precious name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Accuracy of The Bible in Science!
1. Isa 40:22 - The shape of the earth.
a. Isaiah spoke this when men thought the earth was flat.
b. Today, with space travel , etc., we have pictures from space to show us the shape.
2. Job 26:7 - How the earth is held up.
a. How did Job know this?
b. Ancient men believed many wrong things: The earth on the back of a huge turtle, etc.
3. What do you think about this? Science has theories about many things in life, but very little knowledge. Were ancient mmen more intelligent than modern man? What did they have that scientific man does not have? GOD! To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God Bless Everyone today with Hope, Faith and love. In His Love, Vic.

A Wednesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

An Illuminating Morning To All SP Members! Let's learn to see with the eyes of our heart. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Divine God! Grant us discernment! Help us to hear Your voice speaking to our hearts. Give us discernment so we may always distinguish between those who speak Your TRUTH and those who speak false prophesies. Protect us from false prophesies that fill us with fear and false hope. Teach us to examine what we hear against the teaching of the scriptures, so we may learn to discern and trust in Your Word. Let Your Spirit guide us in all truth as You have promised. Enable us to identify what is from You and what is not from You. This we ask in the Powerful name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Accuracy of the Bible!
1. We have seen two examples from the Old Testament, now let's look at an example of history and geography from the New Testa ment.
a. Sir William Ramsey was a skeptic who sought to dispprove the Book of Acts by tracing Paul's journeys.
b. Instead, his findings concerted him to a Christian.
c. Contrary to accepted views of that time, he proved the Bible to be correct when it implied that Iconium was in a different region than Lystra and Derbe (Acts 14:6).
2. What do you think about this? If the Bible did not speak the truth, would it then be no more than a book written by man? God inspired and the Holy Spirit guides the men who wrote the Holy Scriptures with correct details of history and geography. But what about SCIENCE? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God Help us see and discern correctly His TRUTH with love in our hearts and with hunger and thirst for the TRUTH. In His Light, Vic,

A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

A Glorious Morning To All SP Members! Look around you and see the glory of God. Give Him all praises!

PRAYER: "Glorious Father, Eternal God! We have but to look around us to see the glory of Your handiwork. Heal us O Lord, and we will be healed. Open our eyes, our ears and our heart to Your Word and Your presence in our life. How grateful we are that You came as our Hearler. Thank You for mercifully understanding how much we need Your healing hand. We ask this morning for Your healing touch on our bodies and in our soul. We know when You heal us, we will be completely restored in health, both physically and spiritually. Guide us and grant us the wisdom in knowing how to take good care of our bodies and soul, so we can glorify You to the world. This we pray in the Glorious name of our Healer, Jesus Christ, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Accuracy of The Bible!
1. Let's look at another example of the accuracy of the Bible:
a. Ex 1:11 - Teaches us that the Israelite slaves built two of the treasure cities of Pharaoh in Egypt: Pithom and Raamses.
b. These two cities were built using bricks of clay mixed with straw, then clay and stubbles, and then clay alone (Ex 5:10-210).
C. In 1883, Naville examined te ruins of Pithom and found all three types of bricks decribed in Exodus.
2. What do you think about this? Was this a coincidence, or was the Bible speaking the truth? Again and again we see history and geography bearing out that truth. What would it take to convince you of the accuracy of the scriptures?

May God Bless us today with healing of the eyes, ears, and heart. In His Power, Vic.

    I am loving these blogs. It has me thinking about history and the Bible. I need to go find some of the papers from a seminar on this. Sadly, I have forgotten it all. However, I more importantly, I do remember some Scripture. I have a lot of learning to do!
Thank you!

    Thank you for sharing this prayer. I have been gone from spark for about a year and now I'm back. It is amazing how much things change in time. As I look back at my own blogs and pictures I realize that God knew what my future was all along, even though I could not forsee the changes.

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, April 04, 2011

A Blessed Monday Morning To All SP Members! Be glad in yourheart for Jesus loves you. Give God all the praise!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Holy and Just God! We stand at the crossroad of life and look as we ask for ourselves and for our nation, for the ancient path and where the good way is so we may walk in it. But first, we confess before you our sins and the sins of this nation:
the disobedience, the selfishness, the greed, and the immoral acts of sin. Even though there are many who believe in You and walk in the way, far too may have refused to walk Your way. As we stand in the gap of the crossroad of life and look for the good way, we pray that many more people will join us in walking according to Your Law so that disaster to our nation may be avoided. Help us all to be listeners of Your Word and Doers of Your Word. This we pray in the BLessed name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Accuracy of the Bible!
1. The Bible is our Textbook for relgion, but it also touches many other areas in our life.
a. Skeptics have searched it mercilessly to disprove it, but have failed.
b. The Bible actiually speaks the TRUTH.
2. Let's look at HISTORY and GEOGRAPHY.
a. The Hittite Nation.
1. 2 Sam 11:3 - says that Uriah was a Hittite.
2. The Bible mentions Hittites often (Gen 15:19-21; Num 13:29; Josh 3:10; etc.), but for years skeptics have said that was wrong.
3. In 1906, Hugo Winkler excavated HATTUSA, the Hittite capital, and we now know that the Hittites rival Egypt and Assyria in glory.
3. What do you think about this? Does the accuracy of the Bible depend on man or on God? Do we walk by faith or by sight? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God help us to see the way clearly so we may walk in it....all the way to heaven and glory.
In Hid Grace, Vic.

Your words bring this hymn to mind,

We walk by faith, and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
From Him Who spoke as man ne’er spoke;
But we believe Him near.

We may not touch His hands and side,
Nor follow where He trod;
But in His promise we rejoice,
And cry, “My Lord and God!”

Help then, O Lord, our unbelief;
And may our faith abound,
To call on Thee when Thou art near,
And seek where Thou art found.

That, when our life of faith is done,
In realms of clearer light
We may behold Thee as Thou art,
With full and endless sight.

May we all walk by faith in the One, True God!

Have a great day!
