It is a source of joy to remember that in the midst of our humanity God’s word breaks in on our words and grips us in a way that human words do not.
Our initial relationship to the Bible is that of faith. By faith we accept the Bible as the Word of God to us. I have a simple definition for faith which has been helpful to me through the years. Faith is taking everything you know about yourself and committing it to everything you know about God. Every time we pick up the Bible to read it, we are acting on faith.
Martin Luther’s life well illustrates this commitment of faith. Luther, above all, wanted to find God, and he began his journey as a monk, trusting falsely in salvation by works. In 1510 he traveled to Rome by foot, a distance of 800 miles, and…

She ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
If unanswered prayer continues in a congregation over an extended period of time, the chill of discouragement will settle over the praying people. If we continue to ask and ask and ask, like petulant children, never expecting to get what we ask for but continuing to whine for it, we will become chilled within our beings.
If we continue in our prayers and never get answers, the lack of results will tend to confirm the natural unbelief of our hearts. Remember this: the human heart by nature is filled with unbelief….
Perhaps worst of all is the fact that our failures in prayer leave the enemy in possession of the field. The worst part about the failure of a military…

In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus wrestled with the knowledge that He would die on the cross, bearing the weight of our sin and being spiritually separated from the Father.
Jesus got alone before the Father and cried out. And when He left that garden, He walked out with calm resolve. Jesus would still drink the cup of suffering and separation, but He knew that in the end, He would triumph (Heb. 12:2). That’s why He could face the cross, the beatings, and the humiliation. When Jesus went to confront the arresting party, He was ready—so much so that the Pharisees and soldiers “drew back and fell to the ground” (John 18:6). He allowed them to arrest Him, determined to do His Father’s will.
We, too, can come to know God’s heart and mind when we’re in the habit of regularly spending time alone with Him. Then as…

Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:18
Peter Drucker said, “Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window.”
We know “that in the last days perilous times will come” (2 Timothy 3:1), and there will be “wars and rumors of wars” (Matthew 24:6). Just as the world reaches a crisis point, Jesus will come to rapture His people (1 Thessalonians 4:16). A man of evil will arise who will exalt “himself above all that is called God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). He will establish a treaty with Israel, but after three and a half years he will break it (Daniel 9:27). He will then set up his image in the rebuilt Jewish temple, which will spark the Great Tribulation. Just when the Antichrist seems about to destroy Israel, Jesus…
