Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


Our verse here in Isa. 40 is a very familiar verse.  We hear it quoted often.  We see it framed and hanging on walls as decoration.  We see it printed on clothing.  It is a well used verse.  Let’s take a gaze at it today.  What great encouragement it is for these last days.  This is encouragement for the saved by grace.  He mentions that it is for those that “wait upon the Lord”.  It is not those that wait on the Lord but “upon” the Lord.  A person can wait on the Lord and wait on the Lord and be disappointed when they are left behind, but the person in whose foundation is the Lord Jesus Christ will wait on the Lord and be rewarded with redemption.  To “wait” here in our verse means to wait in expectation.  Amen!  The child of God is waiting in great expectation for the redemption of rapture.  Then they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength. “Renew” means to grow up.  Oh my how we need to grow up.  We have so many Christians in the church that are still immature in grace.  They are so caught up in the world and its agenda that they leave out the most important thing of life and that is serving the Lord Jesus.  Many are serving athletics, vacations, social celebrations, and themselves, but few are serving the Lord.  Oh how we must grow up in grace.  We are guilty of taking for granted the glory of God.  We put God on the back row and strive to be like the world.  We serve and praise the Lord when we have nothing else on our schedule.  Shame on us!  We must grow up.  Then after we grow up we are allowed a great ability.  But notice how this ability is only after we grow up.  Many wish to bask in His glory on Sunday after chasing the world by the tail all week.  Not gonna happen friend!  But those who grow up, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.  Eagles are the most graceful of birds in creation.  They are the most powerful and most glorious birds in the sky.  Have you noticed how much people are amazed at the flight of the eagle?  The eagle gives the act of flying and soaring a beautiful witness.  When was the last time you pulled off the road to watch a buzzard soar or to watch a crow fly across a field??  Ha, we have never did that.  But the eagle will stop traffic and turn every head as they soar in grace and scream in victory.  So my friend, are you a buzzard today or are you a victory screaming eagle?  What witness will you present today?  Will you be an annoying crow or a death seeking buzzard or an eagle?  If we don’t grow up we tend to just be a mocking bird at the church.  We go through the motions doing what we have been trained to do.  But if we grow up we can do as our verse promises; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.  Amen!

1Kings 17:6 And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.


Our verse is taken from the recordings of scripture that tell of the famine of Israel.  Ahab was the leader of Israel during this time. He was an ungodly man and had led the people into ungodly living.  The Lord sends His prophet Elijah to Ahab to tell him that there would neither rain nor dew until the Lord said so.  Now Ahab probably laughed at this prediction.  I’m sure he did not believe it.  But in time he would most definitely believe it because this famine would be one of the worst ever to plague the land.  It would last three long years.  Immediately after Elijah delivers this message to Ahab the Lord commands Elijah into hiding.  Obviously after the famine took hold of the land Ahab would be looking to kill Elijah.  If not Ahab then most definitely his wicked wife Jezebel would seek the life of Elijah.  Elijah sets up camp in the place the Lord pointed out to him.  He would camp by the brook Cherith.  The Lord had also made Elijah an intriguing promise.  He had promised to supply his food needs.  He would do this by commanding the ravens to bring him groceries.  A raven is a type of crow.  Even though crows are smart birds, they would not just naturally bring food to a man.  This is an amazing miracle.  Crows are mostly carnivores; therefore they would know how to find fresh meat.  But notice in our verse that they also brought him bread.  Now where did they get bread??  Wow.  My friend, God is faithful.  He has also promised to take care of us.  We, as the born again, are here on earth to warn this world of sinners that judgment is coming upon this land.  We are witnesses that the only escape is through the atoning blood of Jesus.  As we are hid from much danger, the Lord also feeds us, clothes us and supplies our needs.  And He does it many times in miraculous ways.  I must say that I’ve never had a crow to deliver me bread and meat, but I have saw the Lord supply my needs in mind-boggling ways.  Dear friend, He is faithful to His children.  We must press on in this work of witness.  Maybe we worry too much about the things that the Lord has already promised to provide.  Let’s take time today to give Him praise for His promises and the miracles He has and will work to provide for us. Amen.

Luke 22:60... And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.


We are all familiar with our scripture for today.  This verse is taken from the instance where the rooster told on Peter.  The Lord Jesus was preparing for His death and He informed Peter that He would deny Jesus when the pressure was applied.  Peter was a cocky fella.  He had an overwhelming supply of self-confidence.  Isn’t it ironic that the Lord would use a cock to tell on a cocky Saint?  When Jesus informed the disciples one last time of His expected arrest and betrayal, Peter spoke up immediately.  Peter informs the Lord that he would not allow such and that he himself would die for Jesus.  The Lord Jesus then informs Peter that he will deny the Lord three times.  After the three times denial the cock would crow.  The roosters crowing would be the announcement that the Lord’s prediction was true.  Oh friend, don’t you know that the sound of that rooster was a devastating sound to Peter?   Luke 22:61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly. Peter went out and wept bitterly.  He was convicted.  That word “bitterly” refers to him being sick to his stomach.  Friend, have you ever been so convicted of a sin that you were sick to your stomach?  Thank God for conviction.  The born again child of God has the privilege of active Holy Ghost conviction.  Even the saved person who has backslid into sin will have active conviction.  Many times the cloud of sin will be so thick and controlling that the backslider may ignore that small still voice of conviction, but it is still there.  My friend, conviction is the voice of God.  Conviction is a command from God to repent of sin.  Repentance is a must in order to keep our relationship right with the Lord.  Repentance is required in order for us to keep that rewarding fellowship with the Lord Jesus.  Dear friend do you have some conviction that needs tending to today?  Do you hear the sound of a rooster in the distance?  Don’t hesitate find somewhere to repent now.  It is dangerous to ignore conviction.  When we ignore it then it gets easier to ignore it over and over again.  We must repent.  Conviction requires repentance.  Amen.

Genesis 8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.


Our verse for today is taken from the account of the great flood of judgment that God issued upon the earth during the time of Noah.  During this time the people upon the earth had grown very wicked and evil and had denied the presence and power of God.  As the scripture explains it in Genesis 6, man had become very ungodly.  Gen. 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  As a result to this ungodliness the Lord issued judgment upon the earth in the form of a flood.  The entire world was flooded.  Every living soul perished except for the only family God preserved which was Noah and his family.  Noah was the only man who sought after the heart of God.  He alone was the only man still seeking God for his home.  My friend, in these last days, in which we live, we too sometimes feel alone.  No doubt there are few that still seek after the heart of God.  Most have gone their own way.  Most have turned from God and went after ungodliness and evil.  But as the scriptures teach us, judgment is yet coming again!  The Lord will judge man yet again.  Our only hope is the same as it was in the days of Noah.  We must get in the ark.  Our ark is the Lord Jesus Christ.  He alone is the salvation of the soul.  We must get in the ark that is sealed with the blood of Jesus.  It is in the ark of Jesus that we can be saved from judgment to come.  Only the blood of Jesus seals out the judgment of God.  Now our verse for today speaks of the ending of the judgment flood.  Noah and his family had been in the ark for many, many months.  He had felt the ark land upon Mount Ararat.  After some time he sent out a dove which came back to him with no where to land signaling that the waters were still too deep to open the ark door.  Then on the second time that the dove was sent out she came back with an olive leaf signaling that the trees were now out of the floodwaters.  What did this dove deliver to Noah?  It is the faithful promise of God!  The Lord had promised Noah that He would save him and his family from this judgment and the olive leaf was proof that he had kept His promise.  My dear friend, press on!  The dove is a representation of the Holy Ghost in our heart.  He delivers olive leaves to us daily.  You see, the olive represents the anointing of God.  The olive tree delivers olives which deliver olive oil.  May I remind us that 2000 years ago God squeezed oil from a tree upon Mt Calvary!  Because of this supply we can be sure of deliverance.  It is still the blood of Jesus that delivers the soul of man from the judgment of sin.  Listen closely today as the Holy Ghost delivers little olive leaves to you as a sign that His promise of deliverance stands true even today.  Amen.

Proverbs 15:10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.


Our verse today is not really a verse to worship on or to shout about.  It is a verse that will send a firm warning to some but to some it will turn on the light of confirmation.  First, we see the subject of our verse is “correction”.  This word means to be corrected, to be disciplined, or to be given instruction.  Our world today is filled with those that reject instruction and despise correction.  We must be cautious not to reject instruction.  If a person rejects instruction then they likely reject the Word of God.  The Word of God is an entire book of instruction from God Himself.  Our verse warns us of being “grievous” of this correction.  In other words, it infuriates you to be corrected.  It really turns on your defense when you are told that you are wrong.  Friend, this is a very dangerous state to be in.  Verse 10 goes on to tell us that this person “shall die”.  Wow, those are strong words!  A person who continually rejects correction and reproof will die spiritually and sometimes they will die physically.  How’s that?  Well, let’s suppose that I am about to walk out into oncoming traffic and you scream out for me to stop.  I turn and look at you with an evil eye of strife because I am aggravated that you would correct my way of walking.  So I keep walking…and you know the rest of the story.  Correction is for our own good whether it be physically or spiritually.  You see, the real problem is not just ignoring the correction.  The real problem here is fleshly pride.  Fleshly pride is a monster.  It is dangerous and very destructive.  It destroys everything in its path for great distances.  Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.   Pride kills!  Pride of the flesh is an acid that eats away at our well being.  Notice our verse; Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way.  You see, this person is actually living out of the will of God.  They are not walking in the ways of the Lord.  They have forsaken the Lord’s will and taken to their own fleshly desires.  Let’s check out some more advice about this pride; Proverbs 14:3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.  Pro. 13:10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.  Pro. 11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.  Wow, what a firm warning we have here.  Be careful today not to reject and grieve over correction.  That correction that we fight so hard against might just save our life.  Amen.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
