“Hating The Voice Of Truth”

“Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said to them, “Shall I go against Ramoth-gilead to battle or shall I refrain?” And they said, “Go up, for the Lord will give it into the hand of the king.” But Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not yet a prophet of the Lord here that we may inquire of him?” The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of the Lord, but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. He is Micaiah son of Imlah” (1 Kings 22:6-8).

Message summary: Like many today, Ahab hated the voice of truth but that did not keep the prophet Micaiah from boldly speaking out the truth. May God raise up men and women like Micaiah today, who will faithfully speak the truth even to a world that doesn’t want to hear it and in so many cases even hates it.

“Wanting To Be A Good Dad”

“For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into His kingdom and glory” (1 Thessalonians 2:11,12).

“A Lesson From A Polluted Fountain”

“Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked” (Proverbs 25:26). “Keep yourself pure” (1 Timothy 5:22). “All who have this hope in Him (Christ) purify themselves, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:3).

Message summary: So many are giving “way before the wicked”. All month long we have been subjected to a celebration of evil, with so many companies, stores, and technology clamoring to get in on the “woke” action. Far too many churches are not taking a strong stand and have ceased to make a faithful declaration of God’s standards regarding life, sexuality, gender distinctions and marriage. Walking a middle road is surely not what is needed but rather a clarion call to God’s standards.
