Praise God, It Is Christ

StopAndPrayTV

“Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” (Romans 8:34)

In our text, Paul asks if there is anyone who can issue a guilty sentence against believers. In light of all Christ has done and the fact that the Father “hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22), only Christ has the authority to condemn. Will Christ condemn those for whom He died? Obviously not, and Paul gives four reasons why the very suggestion is absurd.

First: “It is Christ that died.” He is the very one who left heaven to die as a substitute for us. True, “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23), but “Christ died for our sins” (1 Corinthians 15:3). Certainly, the one who bore condemnation for us will not turn…

Discerning God’s Will

StopAndPrayTV

Matthew 16:21-26

It’s tempting to think we know what’s best, and this tendency often shows up in our prayers. Instead of laying our concerns at the Lord’s feet and asking Him for guidance and peace in the situation, we start telling Him exactly how we want Him to answer. Although today’s passage isn’t about prayer, it demonstrates a biblical principle that applies to our communication with God.

In making our requests, we should seek to align them as closely as possible with God’s revealed will as found in Scripture. This requires setting our minds on the Lord’s interests, not our own desires.

The way Peter saw things, rejecting Jesus’ announcement of His death made perfect sense. Even though this prophesy came directly from his Lord, Peter couldn’t reconcile the words crucified and Messiah. He had left everything to follow Jesus and was expecting to share in the glory. If…

Steel and Velvet

StopAndPrayTV

Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her. John 8:7

Poet Carl Sandburg wrote of former US president Abraham Lincoln, “Not often in the story of mankind does a man arrive on earth who is both steel and velvet, . . . who holds in his heart and mind the paradox of terrible storm and peace unspeakable and perfect.” “Steel and velvet” described how Lincoln balanced the power of his office with concern for individuals longing for freedom.

Only one person in all history perfectly balanced strength and gentleness, power and compassion. That man is Jesus Christ. In John 8, when confronted by the religious leaders to condemn a guilty woman, Jesus displayed both steel and velvet. He showed steel by withstanding the demands of a bloodthirsty mob, instead turning their critical eyes upon themselves. He said to them, “Let…

VIDEO The God of Everything Needed

StopAndPrayTV

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. Psalm 23:1, NLT

Every August, lists are prepared by parents to make sure their children have everything they need for the new school year—from pencils, paper, and lunchboxes for the little ones; to computers, smartphones, and residential furnishings for the college students. The most satisfying phrase a parent can hear on the night before the first day of school is: “Don’t worry—I have everything I need.”

That is the opening line of David’s twenty-third psalm, a summary statement of how the Good Shepherd takes care of His sheep. Traditionally, that first line has been rendered, “I shall not want.” But a modern, more positive rendering is, “I have all that I need.” There is no need to consider what we might need and then remember that we have it. Instead, we know, without wondering, that we have everything we…

How difficult is it to go from an A rating with the NRA to an F rating?

Not difficult at all once the individual becomes a politician on the left side of the aisle.

It’s too bad she’s a lefty

She will not likely be her party’s nominee, and that’s a shame because when we listen to her, she seems like the most knowledgable of the bunch.

She must be recruited to switch parties, an unlikely possibility as she is the representative from Hawaii, the closest state we have to being a full-on Marxist mecca.

NEVER HIRE A MUSLIM Reason #204: Designated terrorist group CAIR files “anti-Muslim discrimination” complaint against Walmart

Are you the CEO of a major business or the owner of your own operation.

If you want to avoid needless and costly litigation, don’t hire Muslims.

CAIR allegedly stood for the Council of American and Islamic Relations.

Make no mistake about it, when CAIR is involved it’s all about furthering the goals of Islam, America and the rest of the peace-loving world be damned.

Walmart hasa long, shameful history of bowing down to the constant religious demands of Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR. (See links below)

The Columbus chapter of CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), Ohio today announced the filing of a wrongful termination complaint against Walmart with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on behalf of a Muslim-Somali man.

The Muslim man began his employment at Walmart in 2004.  For years, the employee alleges that he was subjected to a hostile…
