Morning Light – Jeremiah 4 Today: [Jeremiah 4] Jeremiah Calls God a Liar. In this chapter the Father speaks through Jeremiah of the full fury of His judgments to come upon the people. Shocked by the words of God coming out of his own mouth, Jeremiah reacts and calls God a deceiver. Is this true?

What right does God have to run rough shod over our lives when we have no defense from His sovereignty? In … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 20th, 2017 – Jeremiah 3:  Is God an Adulterer?

Morning Light – Jeremiah 3 Today: [Jeremiah 3] Is God an Adulterer? In Jeremiah 3 God Himself seemingly admits that He is violating His own law by seeking to be reunited in marriage with an adulterous people. The issue of adultery and remarriage in today’s church is one of the most scandalous and contentious issues one can consider. Churches and families have been torn apart. Ministries destroyed and homes devastated, not just by the occurrence of marital problems and breakup but even more so by the church’s vicious and venomous handling of those who have suffered in such situations.

Morning Light – Jeremiah 2 Today: [Jeremiah 2] Cisterns that Hold No Water: In chapter 2 of Jeremiah the prophet cries out to a nation that considers itself right before God but is in reality, standing in the shadow of its own destruction because it has forsaken Him. The people Jeremiah speaks to are so convinced of their self-worth that it takes very strong language on the prophet’s part to convince them they have put their trust in a system (or cistern) that can hold no water (or promise) for them.

Morning Light – April 18th, 2017 – Isaiah 66:  Book of Isaiah, Conclusion

Morning Light – Isaiah 66 Today: [Isaiah 66] Book of Isaiah, Conclusion. In chapter 66 of Isaiah we re-examine the authorship and character of this all important and unique book of prophetic utterance. Isaiah is the first of the prophetic books and is uniquely messianic. In this concluding chapter, Isaiah speaks sternly against the ongoing idolatry of the people and the city of Jerusalem itself. As this book began denouncing idolatry among the people of God it concludes with the same adding a strong promise of hope to those who choose to walk in humility and contrition before the Father. … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 14th, 2017 – Isaiah 65:  Is the Church God’s Second Choice?

Morning Light – Isaiah 65 Today: [Isaiah 65] Is the Church God’s Second Choice? In this chapter, we see Isaiah declaring the coming of the Gentile church by the word of the Lord. Was the church God’s alternative plan after the Jews rejected the Messiah? Is Christianity as we know it simply God’s contingency plan after He came to His own people and His own received Him not? In this chapter Isaiah speaks centuries ahead of time of a people who “are not a people” calling upon the Lord and constituting a chosen community of faith. In that context we … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Isaiah 64 Today: [Isaiah 64] God is Moving Toward You. In Isaiah 64 we see Isaiah calling for the Father to “rend the heavens” a make Himself manifest in the midst of the people in a difficult time. He acknowledges that all have sinned and that man’s idea of righteousness is filthy rags at the judgment seat of heaven. Regardless of man’s iniquity we see God will meet and move toward those who rejoice and work righteousness in their lives. What is righteousness? Righteousness is not a religious code. According to 1 Cor. 1:30 righteousness is only … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 12th, 2017 – Isaiah 63:  The Need of a Savior

Morning Light – Isaiah 63 Today: [Isaiah 63] The Need of a Savior. In this chapter, we find the fury of God poured out upon a disobedient people. In the midst of this there is mention of the mercy and pity of God that is available, but unappropriated because man chooses his own way in lieu of submitting to the Father’s origination of salvation through the cross. Why did (why does) God judge? Is He a megalomaniacal despot gleefully raining consequences down upon defenseless men who cannot escape? Is God insane? Modern thinking would suggest that this would be the … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 11th, 2017 – Isaiah 62:  Interceding for the Zion of God

Morning Light – Isaiah 62 Today: [Isaiah 62] Interceding for the Zion of God. When was the last time you spent a time of intercession and crying out to God for your local church? Criticizing the church and its leadership is and has been a favorite pastime for the body of Christ. Tabloid criticism of leadership and those in ministry is a lively sport of mental athleticism among many believers. Do you criticize the church more than you pray for the church? Have you disengaged with the brick and mortar church with no intention of return? What is the mandate … (click link or title to continue)
