FCC votes 3-2 to abolish #NetNeutrality-I Posted Many Times About This

It happened and it is NOT good. It will kill a lot of what I do online. 90% of what I do is online, so little guys and censuring is game on.

I said soon the internet will change as we know it, today it did, next the internet kill switch will be hit, No internet. This, I have wrote on, spoken on many, many times.
My little sites are dead and Christians will be censured, watch.

The death of the 100% free true internet is on today. I will have to see where this will effect what I do. My free bible college has many videos on you tube and the live mail I use, all of it can be greatly effected. It could also kill a lot of what I do online.
Internet research and certain sites will be throttled. I have already been seeing this a while now. 

This site has been bottle necked(throttled) almost a year, meaning a 80% reduction in visits. 

Pray for this ministry and others online that we have time to do what we are called to do. 

PS, by the way Trump is all for this. Hmmm. The white house spokes person said the white-house supports this but if they support it.



A number of tragic emails are below:

Sometime during 2003 I received an email from a Nigerian
Pastor, asking for prayer. He was at a loss as to what to
tell his flock who were "exhorted" (that should be extorted)
by a travelling American evangelist to give money to God
(to him of course) and that God would return the amount
100 fold. Of course all the flock were in that poor and needy
bracket and they gave believing that God would meet their
financial needs. Sick!

So the Evangelist departs with all the money and the poor
Pastor is left to explain to God's people why God has not
honoured their giving.  They gave their food money and rent
money believing God would replace it - the result was
hungry, homeless people, more misery created by man in
God's name. My only advice was never never never never
allow these guys anywhere near your people and to teach
that our giving should not be to create a debt with God.
-Jeff Leigh.

I have a relative who was in dire financial need to help pay
for a utility bill that was going to be shut off. She contacted
TBN founders seeking for a small donation to help pay her
utility bill, they told her that they do not help in this way.
They would pray that she can get the financial help she
needs She had sent in hundreds of dollars over the years
to support this TBN Station, but when it was time for her to
get help which was less than $100.00 she needed, after
this she has not sent anymore money to fund them.

She had sent hundreds of dollars to these preachers on
TBN who preach 'If you send this amount of money to them,
depending on the amount of money they sent they would
be blessed some 30, 60 or 100 fold. She sent money
because she wanted to be blessed with money in return
not to submit to the Lord in the spirit of love, and humility.
She just wanted to get money back. And this is happening
in the lives of so many saints of God.

-Sister Cotia.

I want to say in response to this that my husband and I fell
for this message...hook, line and sinker.  We are now in
such a financial mess only God can rescue us!  We once
gave $1000.00 for a TV minister's airplane that we really
needed for our own bills.  We were told by him how
anointed he was and that we were guranteed the help we
need if we help buy his airplane for ministry.  Well, needless
to say no help came.  We have had more financial problems
in the past four years because of our blindness... our
willingness to accept this as the truth.  God woke us up a
year ago after falling on our faces and repenting.  We are
still in a huge struggle and hope to not go bankrupt. We
have credit card debt that is insurmountable.

We are told by these men if it isn't working we are the ones
at fault...we aren't giving enough...or we have sin in our lives....
"our cloud is not full enough" so we need to give more so
that "once it is filled up it will rain".

The Lord has kept us from drowning and like I said before
our only hope is in Him. God help us and save us from this
mess we ourselves have created.


There are a couple more 'gimmicks' that TV preachers are
using currently to get money out of their audiences. Usually
you will see one start using a technique and then soon
enough many others are getting on the 'bandwagon'.

When the Christian TV stations have 'telethons'' they will
have guest preachers come on to help stir up the people to
give. One such man of long Christian standing spoke of how
much he had given God the previous year. On TV he went
on to say how he was glad that he gave that much since
his wife had gotten cancer that year and they had already
'sown' into the Kingdom of God (talking about money).
Evidently God healed his wife 'because they had given
MONEY'....He was VERY clear what he meant...If you have
a physical need such as healing, give money and God will
heal you....SICK! Where does Jesus say this? He gave
command to the disciples: FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED,

The Great Christmas Auction

I was reading E-Sword and the devotions as always. I have in the past posted some of these, this one will blow your mind.
It was a two day two part devotion, I read day one, man I wanted to read ahead , but I did not, when I read the part two I just said wow, very good message. Today is Feast of lights, Christmas a Pagan holiday, but I post it today and say happy feast of lights, happy holidays to all.

The devotion is Rylisms

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom_8:32)

Years ago there was a very wealthy man who, with his devoted young son, shared a passion for art collecting. Together they traveled around the world, adding only the finest art treasures to their collection. Priceless works by Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and many others adorned the walls of the family estate.

The widowed elder man watched with satisfaction, as his only child became an experienced art collector. The son’s trained eye and sharp business mind caused his father to beam with pride as they dealt with art collectors around the world.

As winter approached, war engulfed the nation, and the young man left to serve his country. After only a few short weeks, his father received a telegram. His beloved son was missing in action. The art collector anxiously awaited more news, fearing he would never see his son again. Within days, his fears were confirmed. The young man had died while rushing a fellow soldier to a medic.
and lonely, the old man faced the upcoming Christmas holidays with anguish and sadness. The joy of the season, a season that he and his son had so looked forward to, would visit his house no longer.

On Christmas morning, a knock on the door awakened the depressed old man. As he walked to the door, the masterpieces of art on the walls only reminded him that his son was not coming home. He opened the door, and a soldier greeted him with a large package in his hand.

“I was a friend of your son,” the soldier said. “I was the one he was rescuing when he died. May I come in for a few moments? I have something to show you.” As the two began to talk, the solider told of how the man’s son had told everyone of his father’s love of fine art.

“I’m an artist,” said the soldier, “and I want to give you this.”

(continued tomorrow)

The Great Christmas Auction (Part 2 of 2)

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom_8:32)

As the old man unwrapped the package, the paper gave way to reveal a portrait of the man’s son, which the soldier had painted. Though the world would never consider it the work of a genius, the painting featured the young man’s face in striking detail.

Overcome with emotion, the man thanked the soldier, promising to hang the picture above the fireplace. A few hours later, after the soldier had departed, the old man set about his task. True to his word, the painting went above the fireplace, pushing aside thousands of dollars of paintings. And then the man sat in his chair and spent Christmas gazing at the gift he had been given.

The following spring, the old man became ill and passed away. The art world was in high anticipation! According to the will of the old man, all of the art would be auctioned on Christmas day, the day he had received his greatest gift.

The day soon arrived and art collectors from around the world gathered to bid on some of the world’s most spectacular paintings. Dreams would be fulfilled this day; greatness would be achieved as many would claim “I have the greatest collection.” The auction began with a painting that was not on any museum’s list. It was the painting of the man’s son.

The auctioneer asked for an opening bid. The room was silent. “Who will open the bidding with $100?” he asked. Minutes passed. No one spoke. From the back of the room came, “Who cares about that painting? It’s just a picture of his son. Let’s forget it and go on to the truly valuable items.”

More voices echoed in agreement.

“No, we have to sell this one first,” replied the auctioneer. “Now, who will take the son?”

Finally, a friend of the old man spoke. “Will you take fifty dollars for the painting? That’s all I have. I knew the boy, so I’d like to have it.

“I have a bid of fifty dollars,” called the auctioneer. “Will anyone go higher?”

After more silence, the auctioneer said, “Going once, going twice. Gone.”

The gavel fell. Cheers filled the room and someone exclaimed, “Now we can get on with it and we can bid on these great treasures!” The auctioneer looked at the audience and announced that the auction was over.

Stunned disbelief quieted the room. Someone spoke up and asked, “What do you mean it’s over? What about all of these paintings? There are millions of dollars of art here! We demand that you explain what’s going on!”

“It’s very simple,” the auctioneer replied. “According to the will of the father, whoever takes the son . . . gets it all.”

The Bible says, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom_8:32). Receive Jesus into your life, and you get everything that God has to give!

Take the Son, and get it all!

Weekly Visit
December 10, 2017

Good Evening,
Hello, I am Pastor Bob, associate pastor of Truth and Mercy Ministries. Of the three pastors-our founder Pastor Abaldo is at the Truth and Mercy Headquarters in Yermo California, Pastor Charles Novak is from the Chicago area, and I am from everywhere else-literally from sea to shining sea.

Over the past couple of weeks I believe the Lord has shown me to begin to check in and update things as I see them from all over the USA. I shall attempt to do a brief 5-7 minute video each week along with some printed text, and will entitle it “Weekly Visit” (the weekly video will likely contain a little more material than the text). This evening I am in Indianapolis-the weather is cool but relatively mild with some small patches of snow in the shady areas. Traffic has been light to moderate all day though I haven't been near any shopping areas.

Well let's jump right in there. There are a couple of things I would like to talk about this past week. The first and most significant thing is that I had a great (and long) Skype session with Pastor Abaldo at the beginning of the week. We were talking about our prayer life and hearing the still small voice of God. What brother Danny had to say was certainly not new to me, but rather served as a reminder about the way, or rather the steps we should take in prayer. It seems that often people will read Scripture and then pray. That is one way, and certainly God answers our prayers according to His will in any manner He would so choose. Another approach mentoined by my dear Brother is to pray, then be quiet and listen for His still small voice to begin to bring about an answer to prayer. The next step would be to open up the Word of God, as of course often God will speak to us through His Word.

Jer 29:11-13 'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. (12) 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. (13) 'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
These three verses from Jeremiah really speak to me, and I find myself reading them over and over again. God tells us that He will listen to us when we call upon Him, search and seek Him with out whole heart.

Psa 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
Psalm 23 is very familiar to many of us. It brings about a sense of quiet and well being free of distractions and worldly concerns.

1Pe 2:2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,
As we look at a couple of verses in 1 and 2 Peter he speaks about the personal growth we receive from the study of God's word. In the above verse a few of the words are of course rather figureative in nature-but the point is easily understood. In the verse below out of 2 Peter, he speaks of growing in grace-this really excites me and hopefully all who are reading or listening to this.
2Pe 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

As mentioned above I would talk about the second cool thing of the week. I work full time for a large company which has an outstanding reputation across the entire country. So yes, there is such a thing as a large corporation in America which is not laden with scandals. Every year I attend the annual Christmas Banquet which was a somewhat elegant affair (at least by my standards-you know cloth napkins, white table cloth in which to artfully create interesting stain out of overboard food graced upon said linen, along with tons of extra utensils and stuff I didn't really need after all). There were some 800 persons in attendance this past Friday night-some whom I personally know and many whom I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting. At the banquet last year I was chosen to do the invocation before dinner was served and gave a little speech which was carefully laced with Scripture. The words that God gave me to speak last year had a profound effect upon the audience and there were many tears of both joy and sadness as our founder, Mr. Acklie had passed away just a few months prior to the 2016 banquet. I addressed this in my speech as the Lord directed-Mrs. Acklie, the widow was very touched and there was just love in her eyes, I can't hardly even describe this. The CEO who is the son in law of the late Mr. Acklie had very genuine kind words to say to me. I give God all the glory and want none of the fanfare for myself-just a sinner saved by grace! This year the food was blessed by one of the vice presidents of the corporation-and his words spoken were directed toward thanking in Jesus' name. God had not instructed me to do the invocation this year-BUT I know He has other cooler plans for me in 2018. So I go with that-I will speak of these later so that we can pray together as Brothers and Sisters in the Lord.

I look forward to "visiting" again next week. I have planned a pre-Christmas message. It will perhaps be quite different so stay tuned.

The Lord Bless you!
Pastor Bob (a.k.a. Dr. Grandpa)

The Very Rare and Most Beautiful Vase

Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luk_17:21)

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away there lived a very poor man in a shabby house in a run-down neighborhood on the wrong side of the tracks in a economically depressed town, in a state overrun with poverty and need. Things weren’t looking good.

One day as he was rummaging about the piles of items discarded from the local flea market, tossed aside because nobody wanted any of them, something caught his eye. It was a vase, and to his amazement, it was unbroken despite the obvious abuse it had suffered; unbroken, and unmarred.

In fact, it was beautiful, even more so when contrasted by all the trashy surroundings.

He took it home and placed it upon the mantle in his dingy living room, and then sat and simply stared at it. Day after day he would spend hours gazing upon the very rare and most beautiful vase.

One day, as he was intently focused upon the vase, he realized how cluttered his mantle was with other things, and how stained the wall was with the grime of poverty. So he cleared the junk off the mantle, and put a fresh coat of paint upon the wall. That simple decision caused the vase to stand out in even greater beauty, for now his entire wall took on the look of a beautiful painting, and he found such joy in gazing upon it all.

Then one day as he entered his living room he noticed how worn was the carpet, and how tattered were the furnishings. He pulled the carpet out and uncovered a beautiful hardwood floor; he cleaned and recovered the furnishings, transforming the look of the entire room. This is turn led him to slowly began renovating the rest of his home.

Once finished, he delighted in the comfort of his beautiful abode.

But then he noticed that the yard was overgrown with weeds, and filled with junk; the fence was broken down and the outside of his home looked weathered and wasted. So he set upon making the needed repairs and cleaning up the yard. Soon, his home became the talk of the neighborhood, for it brought such a sense of hope to all those around him.

Before long the other homeowners began making repairs upon their houses and yards, such that the entire neighborhood transformed and became the talk of the town.

Yet a little while longer and the town itself began to change; cleaning the trash off the streets, repairing broken windows and repainting faded homes; refurbishing businesses and rekindling dreams. At length, the town became the garden spot of the State.

Tourists came from far and wide to see the beauty of the transformed town. Upon seeing it, they each went home inspired to make changes in their own homes.

Meanwhile, the man sat happily in his living room and looked upon that rare and most beautiful vase, blessed that his life had been transformed by beauty.

Jesus said that kingdom of God was within us; that the royal, ruling power of God was at work transforming our lives from the inside out. This is that very rare and most beautiful vase, and the power of its influence is truly extraordinary! You can change your world — day by day.

Feed My Sheep Pt 4-Fighting for -And Living In Joy

Rom_14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Act_20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Gal_5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

1Jn_1:4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Beloved this message I write to you that your joy may be full, the same as 1Jn 1:4

I see, as many of you do, so many people that have no Joy at all. I speak of Christians.

A simple word, but I remind you with this message what you already know.
Joy unspeakable and full of Glory, that is our promise, but why do so many have no joy, or very little.

There are times and seasons when many , myself included, seem to have a lack of Joy.
It can be circumstances, family chaos, holidays spent alone, bad news, trial and tribulation, you name it.

Joy is a promise, but there are times we must fight for it, why? 'The devil comes to steal , kill, and destroy', that is your joy and peace he is after, and more.

To everything there is a season, people grieve over a lost one, this is normal, what is not normal is when we are not walking in joy because the battles of life are striping it from us, yes, it sometime takes spiritual warfare to keep in Joy.

Other times, we must simply claim what the bible says and walk in it.

Sometimes it is a simple attitude of gratitude we are missing, by gossip, murmuring, using vain, pro-fain words, when we should have our speech salted with heavenly salt.

Joy is in our heart and it should be in our mouths as well. I know many lonely people that feel no one loves them, guess what, Jesus loves you , you are his.

I read emails where people are walking in self-condemnation, condemnation is not of God, its of the flesh and devil. If you sinned, you repent, and get up fresh, forgiven, listen...only Jesus can offer this refreshing, nothing else in this world can, only Jesus.

Joy, simple, many need to read this simple word, Joy beloved, walk , fight for it, claim it, live it.

If your in a place where your joy is lacking, trust in the lord, love and worship the lord, read his word, help others, and know you are one of his saints.

Things come and things go, no matter the case, let us all keep in mind, JOY, it's a fruit of the spirit, it must be cultivated, and yes we all can cultivate joy, by the holy spirit and the very presence of Jesus Christ.

This is the simple word I was given to feed the lords sheep. JOY!!!

I end with a John Piper short on this very message. How to fight for joy, take a listen.

The Prophetic Weather Man Winter Outlook For 2018

I have a very long standing , sort of joke. I have been posting these almost every year, most of the time I just email them to my few beloved ones I email and Skype with. I told them, now I will post public.

Its odd how every year these are correct, not prophetic, just a feeling. I have always had a feeling about weather, and for years have given my OWN Farmers almanac LOL.

Locations unknown, but in locations the winter of 2018 will go down in history in places as the worse winter on record.

Last year many places broke records it will be the same, but worse , I mean very bad in areas. If you live in a place that gets cold, has snow, be alert to the fact you will need warm stuff to put on and inside your place. Have back up heat, anything, power will be out to 100's of thousands so do winter preps and for extreme weather events like big winter tornadoes, happened last year this year worse, sorry but that is what I have to give.

Wild floods in areas and all these weather events and super storms this year 2018 will break all records in areas.

Have a blessed and safe winter.

the violent take the kingdom by force

It has been a very busy month, I have not seen so many applications and new students in the 100% free bible college as it is now. That is a surprise to me. 

You have no idea how many times over the years I felt like just calling the college quits, one can burn out for all the wrong reasons. 

 I am falling behind in emails, messages, and other things, but this time it is for all the right reasons.

The verse in this devotion, is one I have ministered on many times. 

The word violent, does not mean physically , but spiritually violent, not giving up, not calling it quits, going forward no matter what.

It is hard to believe it's almost 2018, I am amazed where has this year gone? 

I have been learning about pressing in, not letting go, giving in, but striving to do great exploits in, and for the lord, what a ride 2017 has been. 

 NOTE: After I did this post I was in study, Spurgeons devotion spoke on the same thing and thus a confirmation I must add to this post at the end.

 Austin-Sparks.Net - Open Windows 30 November

*November 30*

 Matthew 11:12

Mat 11:12  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

The Kingdom is so much bigger than conversion. Of course, if you are
going to be saved at all - I mean saved initially - you will have to
mean business for that. You will have to make it a desperate matter,
because there will be everything to stop you. But the Kingdom means a
very great deal more than merely getting into it, far more than being
converted. There is a great deal more in the purpose of God for our
lives than we have ever imagined, and if we are to enter into that,
violence has to characterize us. We must desperately mean business,
and come to the place where we say: "Lord, I am set upon all that Thou
dost mean in Christ. I am set upon that, and I am not going to allow
other people's prejudices or suspicions or criticisms to get in the
way; I am not going to allow any man-made system to hinder me; I am
going right on with Thee for all Thy purpose. I am going to do
violence to everything that would get in the way." It calls for
violence, and we have to do a lot of violence to get all that God
wills for us.

Oh, how easily many lives are side-tracked, simply because they are
not desperate enough! They are caught in things which limit - things
which may be good, that may have something of God in them, but which
none the less are limiting things, and do not represent a wide open
way to all God's purpose. The only way for us to come into all that
the Lord means - not only into what we have seen but into all that He
has purposed - is to be desperate, to be men of violence; to be men
who say, "By God's grace, nothing and no one, however good, is going
to stand in my way; I am going on with God." Have that position with
the Lord, and you will find that God meets you on that ground. No men
- not even Paul himself - knew all that they were going to know. Paul
was constantly getting fuller unveilings of that unto which he was
called. He received something fairly strong and rich at the beginning;
then, later, he was shown unspeakable things (2 Corinthians 12:4). He
was growing in apprehension. But why? Because he was a man of
violence. God meets us like that. "With the perverse Thou wilt show
Thyself froward" (Psalm 18:26). That, in principle, means that God
will be to you what you are to Him. He will mean business if you mean
business. There is a vast amount in the Kingdom that we have never
suspected. Do believe that.

By T. Austin-Sparks from: Prophetic Ministry - Chapter 6

Spurgeon Evening Nov 30

“Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.”
- Rev_12:7

War always will rage between the two great sovereignties until one or other be crushed. Peace between good and evil is an impossibility; the very pretence of it would, in fact, be the triumph of the powers of darkness. Michael will always fight; his holy soul is vexed with sin, and will not endure it. Jesus will always be the dragon’s foe, and that not in a quiet sense, but actively, vigorously, with full determination to exterminate evil. All his servants, whether angels in heaven or messengers on earth, will and must fight; they are born to be warriors-at the cross they enter into covenant never to make truce with evil; they are a warlike company, firm in defense and fierce in attack. The duty of every soldier in the army of the Lord is daily, with all his heart, and soul, and strength, to fight against the dragon.

The dragon and his angels will not decline the affray; they are incessant in their onslaughts, sparing no weapon, fair or foul. We are foolish to expect to serve God without opposition: the more zealous we are, the more sure are we to be assailed by the myrmidons of hell. The church may become slothful, but not so her great antagonist; his restless spirit never suffers the war to pause; he hates the woman’s seed, and would fain devour the church if he could. The servants of Satan partake much of the old dragon’s energy, and are usually an active race. War rages all around, and to dream of peace is dangerous and futile.

Glory be to God, we know the end of the war. The great dragon shall be cast out and for ever destroyed, while Jesus and they who are with him shall receive the crown. Let us sharpen our swords to-night, and pray the Holy Spirit to nerve our arms for the conflict. Never battle so important, never crown so glorious. Every man to his post, ye warriors of the cross, and may the Lord tread Satan under your feet shortly!

Psalm 25 Verse 5 - By Pastor DR. Charles Novak

Psalm 25 Verse 5 By: Pastor Dr. Charles Novak

This Writing Opens With A Prayer That President Roosevelt Gave On The D-Day Invasion.

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s D-Day Prayer

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty
endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization,
and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their
hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy
is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing
speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace,
and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest-until the victory is
won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken
with the violences of war. 

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the
lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight
to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They
yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic
servants, into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers
of brave men overseas -- whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them--
help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this
hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special
prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our
people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new
day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips,

invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the
contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that
may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in
each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever
be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but
fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help
us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the
saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will
spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men.
And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of
their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.


Have you ever been in a difficult trial and you knew that you were in the trial

because of your own sin? You knew that you should cry out to God for help,

but you were afraid to do so because of your sin. Or, maybe your problems

were not due to deliberate sin, but rather because of immaturity or stupid

decisions. Sometimes even though I have prayed for guidance and wisdom, I

still have done something that resulted in a lot of trouble. What should you do

in times like these?

We can look to Psalm 25, which teaches us to seek God in the hard times, no

matter for what reason we are in those hard times. It seems to me that James

Chapter 1 Verses 5-6 is a good summary of Psalm 25. It says: “But if any of

you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without

reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any

doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed

by the wind.” The context of this verse from James’ is the need for wisdom

even when surrounded by various trials . (James 1:2-3) Says: "Count it all joy,

my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the

testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” James tells us by faith to seek

God and His wisdom in our trials. That’s what King David tells us in Psalm 25:


Here is a little background on King David:

King David is described in the Bible as the second king of Israel and Judah.

In the bible, David is a young shepherd who becomes famous first as a

musician and later by killing Goliath. He becomes a favorite of King Saul and a

close friend of Saul's son Jonathan. Worried that David is trying to take his

throne, Saul turns on David and tries to kill him. After Saul and Jonathan are

killed in battle, David is anointed as King. By defeating the Jebusites, David

conquers Jerusalem, taking the Ark of the Covenant into the city, and

establishing the kingdom founded by Saul. As king, David arranges the death

of Uriah the Hittite to cover his adultery with Bathsheba. According to the

bible, God denies David the opportunity to build the temple and his son,

Absalom, tries to overthrow him. David flees Jerusalem during Absalom's

rebellion, but after Absalom's death he returns to the city to rule Israel. Before

his peaceful death, he chooses his son Solomon as the next king. He is

written of as an ideal king and an ancestor of the future Messiah, Jesus Christ,

and many psalms are written about him. Jesus is our Messiah and gives

refference to David as Jesus is descended from the line of David.

King David was a man of contrasts. At times he was single- mindedly devoted

to God, yet at other times he failed miserably, committing some of the most

serious sins recorded in the Old Testament. David lived a frustrating life, first in

the shadow of his brothers, then constantly on the run from vengeful King

Saul. Even after he became king of Israel, David was engaged in almost

constant warfare to defend the kingdom. King David was a great military

conqueror, but he could not conquer himself. He allowed one night of lust with

Bathsheba, and it had disastrous consequences in his life. Although King David

fathered Solomon, one of Israel's greatest kings, he was also the father of

Absalom, whose rebellion brought bloodshed and grief. His life was a constant

roller coaster ride of emotionals. He left us an example of passionate love

for God and dozens of psalms, some of the most touching, beautiful poetry

ever written.

Tonights Study Will Be on: Psalm 25 Verse 5

Psalm 25 Verse 5 “Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.”

Psalm 25 is a prayer from David to God for pardon and protection

Albert Barnes:
Lead me in thy truth – Dear God, In the way that you regard as truth, or the

way you see to be true. Truth which is eternal and unchanging. What God sees

and regards as truth --- is true, because God sees things as they are; and

when we have the divine estimate of anything, we understand what that thing

is. It is not that the psalmist makes it to be true, but that he sees it to be

true. This is the perfection of his nature that we have the utmost assurance

that what God regards as truth is truth; what He proclaims to be right is right.

It is then Gods truth, as God adopts it for the rule of His own conduct, and

makes it known to His creatures, His creation. to us, to guide us.

And teach me - As this would be understood by the psalmist, it would be a

prayer that God would teach him by Gods law, by His Spirit in the heart; by the

act of His Divine care and direction. As applying this to us, it is a prayer that

God would instruct us by all the truths that are made known, and all that have

since been revealed; by the Spirit of God in its influences on our hearts; by the

events which are occurring around us and within us; by the “accumulated”

truth of time; the knowledge which by all the methods God employs God has

given to people for their guidance and direction.

John Gill:
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me,.... Meaning the word of God, the

Scriptures of truth; and the Gospel, which is the word of truth, and truth itself,

A good scriptural reference is John_17:17 “Sanctify them in the truth; your

word is truth.” ; and the sense here is, either that God would lead the psalmist

by His Spirit more and more into all truth, as contained in His word; or that

God would lead him by His Word and according to it, that he might form his

principles and his conduct more agreeably to the Word of God, which is the

standard and rule of Faith and practice: which leading is by teaching; and

reasons urged for granting all the mentioned requests.

For thou art the God of my salvation - The word “salvation” is not to be

understood here in the sense in which it is now commonly used, as meaning

deliverance from sin and future ruin, but in the more general sense of

deliverance” - deliverance from danger and death. The phrase is equal in

meaning with the word “preservation,” and the idea is that the psalmist

regarded God as his preserver; or that he has given his protection and safety

in the time of danger to God and God alone.

John Gill:
for thou art the God of my salvation; who, in infinite wisdom, planned

design and method of Salvation in his Son, and through His son the power to

produce it, and by his Spirit had made application of it to him: and since the

Lord had done such great things for him, the psalmist hoped the requests he

had made would be granted and given.

On thee do I wait - That is, I rely on Thee, I rely on you; or, I am dependent

on you. He had no other source of reliance or dependence.

All the day - Continually, always. He was really dependent upon God at all

times, and he felt that dependence. It is always true that we as humans are

always dependent upon God for everything; but it is not always true that we

always feel this way. It was a characteristic of the psalmist devotion to God

that the psalmist did feel this way.

John Gill:
on thee do I wait all the day; or continually, in public and in private,

attending to all the duties of religion, yet not trusting in them, but trusting in

the Lord; and therefore that he might not be ashamed of his hope and

expectation for deliverance and salvation.

***Or another way to explain it****

Treasuries of David:
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me.” As a little child is just beginning to

walk, he asks to be still led by his parent's helping hand, and askes to be

further taught in the way of truth. Lead me according to thy truth, and prove

thyself faithful; lead me into truth that I may know its preciousness, lead me

by the way of truth that I may manifest its spirit. David knew much, but he felt

his ignorance and desired to be still in the Lord's school; in this verse David he

basically verbally applies for a scholarship in the college of grace. It was good

for many professors to instead of following their own plan, and cutting out

new paths of thought for themselves, that they would look for the good old

ways of God's own truth, and beg the Holy Spirit to give them sanctified

understandings and teachings.

For thou art the God of my salvation.” Our Creator and Father Jehovah is

the Author and Perfector of salvation to His people. He is the God of our

salvation We see in God the Father's choice, the Son's atonement, and in the

Holy Spirit's working in all of your eternal hopes, you can use this as an

argument for obtaining further blessings; if the Lord has ordained to

save you, surely He will not refuse to teach you in His ways. It is a happy thing

when we can address the Lord with the confidence in which David has here, it

gives us great power in prayer, and comfort in trial.

On thee do I wait all the day.” Patience is the person of faith; we happily

wait, especially when we know for sure that we do not wait in vain. It is our

duty and our privilege to wait upon the Lord in service, in worship, in

expectancy, in trust all the days of our life. Our faith will be tried faith, and if it

is true faith, it will bear repeated trials without complaint. We will not grow

weary of waiting upon God if we remember how long and how graciously He

has waited for us.

I Conclusion:
In worshipping God, we must lift up our souls to Him. It is certain that no one

with a present belief of waiting on God, and, by a believing hope, waiting

for God, would be ashamed of these actions. The most advanced believer both

needs and desires to be taught by God. If we sincerely desire to know what is

expected and required of us, and with resolution to do it, we can be sure that

God will direct us in it. The psalmist is sincere for the pardon of his sins. When

God pardons sin, he is said to remember it no more, never again, which

denotes full remission, or a better way to say it is that they are seen no more.

It is God's goodness, and not ours, His mercy, and not our merit, that must be

our plea for the pardon of sin, and all the good that we need. It is this plea

that we must rely upon, feeling our own unworthiness, and satisfied with the

riches of God's mercy and grace. Now consider how boundless or limitless is

that mercy which covers for ever, the sins and foolishness of a life spent

without God and without hope! Blessed be the Lord, the blood of the great

Sacrifice can wash away every stain.

II Conclusion: It is our duty and privilege to trustingly wait upon the Lord in

adoration, which is (Honor), in supplication, which is (Prayer) and in service all

the days of our lives. To those whose hearts are right with God, they shall not

wander in thought and belief for the want of heavenly direction from God in

any time of confusion or uncertainty.

A "PURGE" is COMING!-by David Wilkerson

We are not ready for the coming of Christ! Is this the Church
triumphant? Covetous, divorcing, depressed, worldly-minded,
grasping for materialism and success, competitive, lukewarm,
adulterous, rich and increased with goods, unaware of spiritual
blindness and poverty, pleasure-loving, recreation-minded,
consumed with sports, politics, and power - is this the Church
Jesus is coming for?Simply coping, filled with fear and anxiety,
satisfied only to have good health and happiness?

My Bible says He is coming back for an overcoming Church! A
Church without spot or wrinkle! A people whose affections are
on things above! A people with clean hands and pure hearts. A
people who are looking for His coming! A people with a "new
Jerusalem state of mind."

The question is no longer, "What can my faith get me? What
miracle will He perform for me?" The question now is -"How
shall I stand before Him? How shall I make it at the judgment?"
"... who shall stand when He appeareth?" (Malachi 3:2 KJV)

The question is no longer, "How do! feel - how do! get happiness?
How do I get the desire of my heart?"

The question Is-"Can I withstand that moment when I stand before
the Judgment Seat of Christ? How can I withstand when I've lived
so carelessly, so selfishly, so neglectful of His great salvation?"
The central issue now has nothing to do with this world at all. At

The purge is going to begin in the pulpit! "...He shall purify the
sons of Levi..." (Malachi 3:3 KJV) God is going to accomplish
that by "turning up the heat " God isgoing to make things so hot,
so fiery, so intense, God's men will be driven to their knees! This
isthe fire of the Holy Ghost! It isthe fire of persecution. It is the
fire of tribulation. The fire of unbelievable hardships, ridicule,
gossip, financial problems. He is going to shake everything that
can be shaken! He is going to shake, and scrub, and burn, and
purge - and purify!

No man or woman of God will escape the purging! God is
determined to get all the dross and filth out of us. The purge will
spread from the pulpit to the pew! Get ready, saints! God is getting
ready to expose all sin, all adultery, all foolishness! The Holy Ghost
is going to reprove us of sin. How can you play games when God
puts you in His crucible and turns up the fire? Your Holy Ghost
baptism is going to have some fire put to it now!

Malachi said-"...the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven: and
all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and
the day that cometh shall burn them up..." (Malachi 4:1 KJV)

God also promises to bring down the strongholds of the enemy!
He is going to once and for all let the devil and the world know
who has the power!

If God is about to do all that the prophets predicted He would -

A purged, purified ministry!

A Church that God is calling back to repentance and holiness.

A people washed, cleansed - offering praises in true righteousness.

A revival among our young people! Drug strongholds coming down!
Alchohol and divorce no longer prevalent among God's people.

The sound of prayer-intercession!

A people of God who will discern between the holy and the unholy!

Everywhere, God's people turning again to the Word.

A tested, tried people, once again devoted to the Person of Jesus Christ!

His Person being lifted up to draw all men to Him!

Christ no longer the stranger in our midst, but CROWNED - PRE-EMINENT!

A Pentecost that truly exalts the name and power of Jesus Christ,
the Lord of all.

The Meaning of Discipleship (Matthew 10)
24 “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a slave above his master. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign the members of his household!
26 “Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. 28 Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
32 “Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36 and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household.
37 “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.
Come to Me (Matthew 11)
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. 26 Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. 27 All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.
Matthew 22
34 But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together. 35 One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”
1 John 2 (NASB)
Christ Is Our Advocate
2 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.
Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard. On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining. The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now. 10 The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
12 I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. 13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. 14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
Do Not Love the World
15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.
18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. 20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. 24 As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
The Promise Is Eternal Life
25 This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life.
26 These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. 27 As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
28 Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming. 29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.
