Teach us Thy Ways O Lord

Jeremiah 10:23 O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.  10:24 O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. It is not in us naturally to know the way that we should live. We […]

Honor Thy Father

Proverbs 22:6 says:“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.

The Work of the Ekklesia

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.” (1 Corinthians 3:9)   Paul told the brethren in Corinth that they were all laborers together with God and that they were God’s husbandry.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:16) This is a huge topic for discernment encompasses so much; it is about having wisdom, knowledge, right understanding, discretion, prudence, good judgment, perception, insight. No wonder it was the gift that Solomon […]

The True Gospel

If we want to know what the true gospel is and what we should preach:  we can do no better than to follow the example of our Lord! Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the […]

Speaking the Truth in Love

This week we thought we will look into what it means to practice godly agape love by “speaking the truth in love”.  The apostle Paul explains in many places in his epistles that the brethren are to teach and to exhort others to live according to God’s truth and righteousness including the times when it […]

TheShiningLight and the Next Year

Laborers for the Harvest

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.  Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers […]

How to Defeat Satan’s Agents

In our modern society Gods faithful are persecuted everywhere; from being rejected by others, all to often including friends and family, to often being denied employment, but the most vile evil is the hiring of so called counselors to brainwash and try to intimidate people out of their faith.   Such people prey on people […]

Great is God’s Faithfulness

God is a faithful God!  We are told of His faithfulness in very many places in Scripture. One of my favorite turn-to’s when facing challenges is in Lamentations 3. Lamentations 3:22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 3:23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. God in His […]

Bob Thiel Lies to Distract From His Failed Prophecies
